** One made all the more confusing by the show's NegativeContinuity. Herbert Powell, Homer's half-brother, is a flat out success in business twice over.
** Homer has proven to be a successful song-writer and Bart has been shown numerous times to [[BrilliantButLazy have potential for success that is usually hindered by his laziness]].

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: The only reason Homer's mother was discovered as part of the group that ruined Mr. Burn's germ lab was because, as everybody else escaped, she stopped to help someone up--who turned out to be Mr. Burns.

** In "The Twisted World Of Marge Simpson", Homer points out the one member of the Yakuza on their lawn is just standing there not fighting the Springfield mob, and he's probably about to do something awesome. Marge still forces Homer inside, and we hear screaming that seems like the Yakuza man did something cool, but we don't get to see it.
