** In "The Man Who Grew Too Much", when Lunchlady Doris reveals to Lisa that the vegetables she uses are genetically-modified to stay fresh, she tells her not to ask how old the Jell-O is. There are two trays of gelatin cut into letters to promote the final episode of ''Series/{{MASH}}'' in 1983 and the Atlanta Olympics in 1996; the episode aired in 2014, so the trays would've respectively been around 31 and 18 years old.

* UngratefulBastard: Barney in "Mr. Plow." At the start of the episode, he's seen handing out fliers wearing a baby outfit (putting him nearly bare naked during the cold temperatures) and encourages Homer to promote his snow plowing business through something else other than fliers. This is what helps Homer's business become popular in the city, until Homer himself gives Barney advice about how to become successful himself. The next day, Barney comes in with a much larger snow plowing truck to Homer where Homer calls Barney out in stealing his idea. Barney then says Homer needs some [[BlatantLies healthy competition]]...and promptly shoots the tires of Homer's plow truck. It doesn't help matters he keeps running Homer's name to the ground in his own TV ads while Homer does nothing to him until he gives Barney false info to clear out a house in a very dangerous area.

* SoulCrushingDeskJob: Homer Simpsons is well established as hating his job as a security director at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. In a flashback episode, when he and Marge only have two children, he figures a way to support his family with a job he will enjoy more he wants to work in a bowling alley. Funny that Homer happily trades his cushy job with a place where he has to work manually or deal with dirty shoes. Homer ecstatically quits, making sure Mr. Burns, the owner of the plant, knows how much Homer hated it. Then Marge realizes she's pregnant and Homer has to beg for his old, higher-paying job back. Mr. Burns re-hires him, but has a plaque mounted in Homer's small office that reads "Don't forget: You're here forever." Homer uses pictures of Maggie to cover letters in such a way that the plaque now reads: "Do it for her."
