Added DiffLines:

** Happens to Cargill twice. He throws his binoculars at an EPA official for telling him the Simpsons have escaped from the dome, but they hit Cargill in the face when they bounce off the dome's glass surface. [[spoiler:Then again at the end when Maggie drops a boulder on his head, knocking him out.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BadBoss: Russ Cargill gets a moment of this after the Simpsons escape from the dome. When an EPA official tells Cargill the Simpsons have escaped, Carill angrily throws his binoculars at him. Instant [[LaserGuidedKarma karma]] strikes when the binoculars bounce back off the dome and hit Cargill in the face.


Added DiffLines:

* BigDamnKiss: As they ride away on the motorcycle at the end, Homer and Marge have one.
** [[spoiler:Homer and Marge on their wedding video, which is a Tearjerker moment as most of it has been taped over, and Marge has just left Homer. '''Ouch.''']]


Added DiffLines:

* DidntThinkThisThrough: The barker obviously didn't expect Homer to win his truck, which is why he gave him an extra attempt to try and win it, expecting him to fail again because he liked seeing Homer hurt himself.


Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Implied. After the Simpsons win the truck in the motorcycle stunt, the barker remarks on how his wives are going to kill him, before worryingly looking over at a pair of Siamese twins wielding rolling pins.
** Lisa punching Bart in the face for mocking the fact that she'll never see Colin again.


Added DiffLines:

* IdiotBall: The barker has a moment of this when he gives Homer an extra try to win the truck because he likes seeing Homer hurt himself. [[TemptingFate Guess what happens.]] Homer wins the truck. Now the barker has to expect a bit of anger from his wives (Siamese twins).

** [[spoiler:As Homer is preparing to save the town, Martin uses a two-by-four to beat up Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Bart too. While he does come across as an asshole a lot (like when he mocks Lisa about the likelihood of not seeing Colin again), he's still a good guy deep down, and wants Homer to be a good father to him, which is why he turns to Ned as a potential replacement father figure. [[spoiler:When Homer lets him hold the bomb when rescuing the town, Bart gladly accepts and apologises to Homer for wishing Homer wasn't his father.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MaybeEverAfter: The Lisa/Colin subplot is wrapped up by them going to get some ice cream.


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Itchy has one in the prologue when he sees Scratchy still on the moon and hold up a sign that reads "I'm telling".
** Homer when the pig crap silo severely re-pollutes the lake after he dumps it. Then he has another one when the silo is found.
** Marge has one when [[spoiler:she sees the advert for the "new Grand Canyon", located where Springfield is.]]
** 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.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TapOnTheHead: [[spoiler:At the end of the film, Cargill is knocked out by Maggie dropping a boulder on his head.]]
* 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.

* {{Badass}}: The family gets their moments. Homer knocking out a soldier in one punch and climbing up the side of a dome with just glue is fairly badass.

* WouldHurtAChild: Even though it was only Homer who dumped the silo in the lake that caused the city to be sealed under a dome, the townspeople also try to kill Marge and the kids as well for no apparent reason other than they're related to the guy responsible.
