* 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.

* TemptingFate: The barker's IdiotBall moment. He likes seeing Homer hurt himself so, obviously not expecting him to fare any better, he gives him another try to win the truck. One guess what happens.

*** 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).

* 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:

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?"

Added DiffLines:

* MustMakeAmends: Homer after his epiphany, [[spoiler:realising that without other people, he's nothing, and has to save Springfield in order to save himself.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SharpDressedMan: Russ Cargill and President Schwarzenegger are always seen dressed in suits/ Only one scene where Cargill doesn't is after the Simpsons escape from the dome, where he is dressed in a blue EPA uniform.

* TheDogBitesBack:
** Literally. After Homer has his epiphany, he mercilessly whips the dogs pulling his sled, even when they're resting, and when they stop at the end of the day, they furiously maul him and leave him to make his own way back to Springfield.
** When it looks like [[spoiler:Springfield is about to be blown up]], Martin Prince angrily walks up to Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney and, fed up of them constantly bullying him, knocks them all out with a plank of wood, then does it again when they come round moments later.



* EpicFail: Cletus once played a game of ticktacktoe with a chicken. ''The chicken won''.

* EpicFail: EpicFail:
** Homer's attempt at using a wrecking ball [[spoiler:to rescue the family from the EPA van]]. The wrecking ball makes the smallest contact with the side of the truck, swings back towards Homer and smashes him repeatedly between things until the chain snaps.

Cletus once played a game of ticktacktoe with a chicken. ''The chicken won''.won''.
** [[spoiler:Homer thwarts the town's escape attempt by sliding down the rope they're escaping on, and when he sadly kicks the bomb over, ''it cuts the remaining countdown time in half''.]]
* EurekaMoment: Homer's epiphany, where he realises [[spoiler:in order to save himself, he has to save Springfield]].



* GetOut: Krusty yells "Get out of here!" at Homer [[spoiler:[[EpicFail when he kicks the bomb and it halves the remaining countdown time]].]]



* KidHasAPoint: Maggie comes up with the idea to use [[ChekhovsGun the sinkhole in the sandbox]] to escape from the dome. She only gets the others to realize her plan by jumping into it, and then she appears outside the dome. Marge, Bart and Lisa then jump, but when Homer tries to use the sinkhole too, he gets stuck in it. He manages to get out, but not before some of the crowd claw at his head.



** Most of the townspeople have one [[spoiler:when the bomb Homer just threw the hole at the top of the dome comes back down and shakes around the hole like it's going to fall through with seconds before detonation.]]

to:

** Homer as he realizes [[EpicFail he's about to be hit by his own wrecking ball]].
** Most of the townspeople have one [[spoiler:when the bomb is first lowered into the dome. They then get another one when the same bomb that Homer just threw through the hole at the top of the dome comes back down and shakes around the hole like it's going to fall through with seconds before detonation.]]
