** In one episode where Homer and Marge are talking to Principal Skinner, he mentions that their son displays "homosexual tendencies". Marge exclaims "Bart's gay!?" and Skinner replies "Bart? Oh, sorry, wrong file," before putting away a file labelled "Milhouse Van Houten".

Oh, sorry, wrong file," before putting away a file labelled "Milhouse Van Houten". It's this trope because Milhouse is also not gay - he's had at least one girlfriend.

** Parodied again in the episode "Rome-old and Juli-eh". Bart finds out that companies can get free cardboard boxes, so he orders a delivery of them, pretending to be a company. When the delivery man asks for the name of his company, he looks around and sees Santa's Little Helper rummaging in a waste bin with "GENERAL INDUSTRIES" stamped on the bottom. Bart gives the name of his company as... Dog Incorporated.

** When Krusty Burger created the Ribwich, it created hordes of devotees who followed it around to selected restaurants like GratefulDead fans (including Homer of course). Krusty has to announce that they had to stop making it since the animal they used was driven extinct.

** Sideshow Bob has his own CapeFear inspired theme music most anytime he appears on-screen, and the show also features two commonly-used musical motifs for town riots. (for reference, the first "riot theme" is heard during the soccer riot in "The Cartridge Family", while the other is heard in "Brake My Wife, Please" when Bart's and Milhouse's Peruvian fighting frogs battle each other)

This time the unemployed and underemployed former SNPP workers come to his rescue, and he rehires them all.

** The episode "Natural Born Kissers" sees Homer and Marge visit a miniature golf course, though not to play, but rather to "get busy" inside the windmill hazard. Being a comedy series, this effort goes Entertainingly Wrong.
