** 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.

* QuarantineWithExtremePrejudice: When Springfield officially becomes the most polluted city in America (thanks to Homer) the EPA puts a giant dome over it for the sake of quarantine, and when the Simpsons manage to escape the dome, Cargill immediately escalates to having guards patrolling the perimeter with orders to shoot to kill anybody who breaches it, as well as the plan to nuke Springfield literally off the map.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: This is basically the reason why this movie has a plot in the first place. Due to Homer's reckless actions almost causing Springfield to perish, he attempts to run away from his problems and refuses to own up to his mistakes. It is only until his family abandons him and he gets an epiphany does he decide to stop being selfish, take responsibility for his actions, and set things right.

** Marge has another one when the Simpsons (without Homer) arrive by train in Seattle, and sees Russ Cargill on the platform. They duck out of sight and Marge wonders aloud if he saw them. Immediately after that, they get cpatured, and Cargill pops up in the window and says that yes, he did see them.
