* NoExceptYes: Played with in "Tennis the Menace", after Homer replaces Lisa with Venus Williams as his tennis partner. The following exchange occurs:
--> '''Lisa''': You're replacing me?\\
'''Homer''': "Dumped" is such a strong word. Let's just say I'm "replacing" you.

* ParentheticalSwearing: At the end of "Bart's Dog Gets an F", Emily Winthrop, the obedience school's owner, says "You son of a bitch, good show" at the graduation ceremony, which may very well be an instance of GettingCrapPastTheRadar. [[note]] The word "bitch" originally referred to a mother dog before taking on the negative connotations it has today.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* NeverSayDie: Occasionally lampooned, but otherwise it's fully averted.
** Louie expresses surprise at seeing disgraced actor Troy [=McClure=], having believed him to be dead because his boss told him he 'sleeps with the fishes.' Turns out it wasn't a euphemism for death, but [[BestialityIsDepraved rather a euphemism for his alleged sexual fetish involving marine life]].
** Ned Flanders has shown himself to be reluctant to just come out and tell Marge about Homer's "death" in the season 7 episode, "Mother Simpson":
--->'''Ned''': Marge, we're here because of Homer's, you know, passing...\\
'''Marge''': ''(beat)''\\
'''Ned''': Away...\\
'''Marge''': ''(beat)''\\
'''Ned''': ...Into death...
** Also spoofed in the first act of an early Tracey Ullman Show-era short, "The Funeral." After the parents tell Bart and Lisa that their elderly uncle had passed away, Lisa asks what "passed away" means. Bart, taking sadistic glee in explaining what it means, uses various not-very-appropriate euphemisms such as "kicked the bucket," "pulled the croak chain," "had a meeting with ol' Mr. Grim," etc. When Homer scolds him for it, Bart glumly says, "That he died."

* 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.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Parodied in universe with Milhouse depositing forty quarters to play an arcade game of ''Film/{{Waterworld}}''. Upon starting the game, the Mariner takes one step at which point the machine states "GameOver. Please deposit forty quarters." Milhouse is annoyed that he got ripped off, yet still adds more quarters. Martin is also seen playing an arcade adaptation of ''Film/MyDinnerWithAndre'' with three dialogue options: "Tell Me More", "Bon Mot" and "Trenchant Insight".
