* BehindTheBlack: When Marge questions how the pig tracks got on the ceiling, the camera pans out a bit to show Homer doing the "Spider-Pig" routine in the same room, which Marge should have seen and heard considering she's been cleaning in there for a few minutes at least.

* ChekhovsGun: More like Chekhov's Motorcycle, Wedding Tape, Sinkhole, and Lake.

Lake. Also, there's Chekhov's Crumpled "P" (from the Springfield Sign).
*** * ChekhovsSkill: Chekhov's Motorcycle Stunt.Stunt. Initially, Homer can't perform a motorcycle stunt for crap, until Lisa gives him advice that allows him to ace it and earn his family some much needed money. Much later, [[spoiler:Homer puts these skills to even better use to ride around the dome's surface, and get Bart to throw the bomb through the hole at the top]].



* GreenAesop: Played straight and subverted. Although there is a green message, the villain of the movie happens to work for the E.P.A., and is perfectly happy to kill everyone in Springfield [[KnightTemplar in the name of protecting the environment]]. Oh, and in case you forgot this is ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', so both sides are mocked.

*** Before that, Homer was walking into the church saying "These pious morons are too busy talking to their phony-baloney God." At first this might seem like a standard jab at the religious, but in the episode "HOMR", after [[ItMakesSenseInContext having a crayon removed from his brain and vastly increasing his intelligence,]] Homer, while working on a flat tax proposal, [[AchievementsInIgnorance accidentally proved God did not exist.]] Since the discovery was treated as airtight, and put Flanders in a terrible mood, it would make sense that Homer would still remember it several years later. However this is undermined by the fact that the movie practically outright shows God giving Abe Simpson the prophecy about Springfield's impending fate, making it look like that moment in "HOMR" was just another jab at the religious (in addition to the fact that the episode "HOMR" is undermined by the later episode "Thank God It's Doomsday" which shows God and has the Rapture occur).

Added DiffLines:

* BigYes: Bart does one when Homer manages to successfully ride the motorcycle around the cage.


Added DiffLines:

* BlueIsHeroic: Inverted with the EPA, who wear blue uniforms but are responsible for sealing off Springfield and essentially trying to wipe it off the map.
** Played straight with Maggie, who wears blue baby clothes as usual and scares off Mr Teeny with a DeathGlare and a broken bottle, comes up with the idea that saves the rest of the Simpsons (using the sinkhole to escape from the dome) [[spoiler:and saving Homer from Cargill at the end.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DeathGlare: Maggie scares off Mr Teeny with one, as well as her bottle after breaking it.


Added DiffLines:

* LightIsGood: Homer's usual white shirt, as he is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, as even though he's [[TheMillstone the one most responsible for dooming Springfield]], he's also the one responsible for saving it.


Added DiffLines:

** Marge in the gas station scene when she sees the Wanted poster with the family on it behind the clerk. Luckily Bart doctors it before the clerk can see it.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Homer and Bart have one after the bomb explodes and it starts to crack the dome while they're still riding down the side of it. Also when they see they're heading for Springfield Gorge moments later.]]


Added DiffLines:

** After the dome is destroyed, Chief Wiggum remarks that it's a miracle no one was hurt. Cue a large shard dropping with a thud and impaling Dr. Nick.


Added DiffLines:

* TheVoiceless: Subverted with Maggie, who is silent for almost all of the movie, but speaks one word during the credits, her first word to be heard by the rest of the family: "Sequel?"
