* RealityEnsues: ''The Itchy and Scratchy Show'', an obvious parody of Tom and Jerry, removes the classic "Wile. E. Coyote immunity" from the scenario and each cartoon typically ends with Itchy the mouse brutally murdering Scratchy the cat.

* OneEpisodeFear: In "Fear of Flying", Marge is, well, afraid of flying. While it makes sense that she's not afraid of flying in later episodes since TheShrink made her come to terms with it which could well have led to it going away, it's odd that it's never shown up before because the incident that gave her the fear happened when she was a kid and she's been on a plane in previous episodes.

* RidiculouslyLongPhoneHold: In the episode where the family goes to Australia, Bart calls a boy in Australia to ask which direction the water in the sink is flowing. The boy has to check with his neighbour who lives many miles away, so he places Bart on hold and spends half the day visiting his neighbor and going back to answer the question. By the time he gets back Bart had already gone to bed and no longer cared about the question at all.

* ThePerfectCrime: One of the original Tracy Ullman shorts had Bart claim that stealing freshly baked cookies and blaming it on Maggie is the perfect crime, as his pre-verbal sister can't defend herself. Then he eats an entire sheet of cookies and gets caught because he has chocolate smeared all over his hands and face. As Homer drags Bart away for punishment (the latter lamenting that there is no such thing as a perfect crime), Maggie steals ''one'' cookie - whose absence will be blamed on Bart if it is noticed at all.
