* EvilTaintedThePlace: PlayedWith when Marge sells a murder house to her neighbors without explaining the history of the property. Of course, Marge feels guilty about this soon after the transaction, and she decides to offer them their deposit back the next time she meets with them. When she finally goes to explain and apologize about the omission she discovers that they already have found out about it. They aren't angry at her about it and are in fact delighted with the house's history. The most troubling part about it is, the neighbors exhibit a bus load of horror movie tics during the conversation. Marge and the audience can't tell if they're just joking or if an actual remnant of evil exists within the property.

-->'''Marge''': What's the score?
-->'''Homer''': Dirty love. I mean, thirty love! I mean, anyone for penis? Errr, I'll just get the shuttlecock. Oop!

* GothGirlsKnowMagic: Invoked and subverted in the episode "Rednecks and Broomsticks" where Lisa befriend three young wicca. When the three teeen girls are arrested, suddenly, half the town becomes blind and the girls are blamed. Turn out that they are innocent and the cause of blindness was not the magic.

* {{Hypocrite}}:Many Lisa episode’s will have her take a stand that’s a complete flip flop of her usual stance or the stance she took in a previous episode. For example the aesope of “Lard of the Dance” is not to be in a rush to grow up however Lisa has repeatedly called her classmate out for [[SoapBoxSadie acting like kids]] when there are so many problem in the world. In addition Lisa is often shown to not only be unwilling to hang out with people who don’t share her interest, but also to talk down on those who do to remind them that she is better yet she repeatedly calls out Harper in “Friend with Benefit” for doing the same thing only this time [[MoralMyopia to her]]. Lisa’s stance of BeliefMakesYouStupid is surprising given her actions in “Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment”.

* HypotheticalFightDebate:
** In one episode Bart asks Milo, the owner of a new comic book shop in town, who would win: [[ComicBook/FantasticFour The Thang]] or [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk the Mulk]]. Milo asks Bart what ''he'' thinks. Bart is impressed that a comic shop owner would encourage discussion rather than pontificating.
