'''You'd Also Expect:''' Homer to try to get his wife to make the phone call instead, since her fingers aren't nearly as thick.
** '''Instead:''' Homer chooses to go to the plant and manually shut down the system. He only narrowly makes it, and his huge bulk - while [[ItMakesSenseInContext ultimately stopping the meltdown]] - gets in his way a number of times.

* In "No Loan Again, Naturally" from Season 20, Homer and Marge are in a state of depression due to longer being able to afford their mortgage payment. Homer especially, since he is DrivenToSuicide and planning to hang himself from a tree outside the house. Bart and Lisa are there to witness it.\\
'''You'd expect''': Bart and Lisa to stop Homer from going through with it.\\
'''Instead''': They just stand there and watch him hang himself. Granted, [[BungledSuicide the tree falls over from Homer's weight]], but still...



'''Instead:''' He writes "Bart Simpson will die". Predictably it gets mistaken for a threat on Bart's life, and Walt has to resort to breaking himself out to save Bart. Marge [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this:
--> '''Marge:''' ''"You have to admit, "Bart Simpson Will Die" was kinda open to interpretation."''
--> '''Walt:''' ''"I'm not a writer."''

'''Result:''' Homer and Mel's actions lead to a very bad reaction from audiences when the film is released months later with the new ending and Mel is completely surprised to find that audiences - especially the Springfield residents who served as the film's test audience - hate it. He even ends with Mel getting hit with a defamation lawsuit from Jimmy Stewart's own daughter. In the end, at least Mel finally realizes that Homer really is just a stupid jerk and not the one honest critic he thought he was and angrily kicks Homer out of his limo when Homer tries to give him career advice on how to bounce back from the fiasco (Homer even suggests that Mel do an IndianaJones film, despite that franchise being headlined by HarrisonFord).

'''Instead:''' She continues to date him for '''''years''''' after finding out. And no it's got nothing to do with why she eventually breaks up with him. Milhouse basically pulled an idiotic stunt that could have gotten Lisa killed just to get into her pants and it '''''worked'''''! [[TooDumbToLive How is she even graduating at all if she's that stupid?]]

* In the Season 17 finale, "Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play," Homer hijacks a blimp and falsely tells a baseball player that his wife loves him in order to help him win a game. Sadly the blimp crashes, and the baseball player thinks his wife is dead. Homer has to come up with an excuse.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Homer to say that the baseball player's wife told him to say the message since she apparently has either a fear of heights or work she has to do.\\
'''Instead:''' Homer, being the lovable idiot {{jerkass}} he is, tells the baseball player that his wife is pooping.

* In [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie the Movie]] when Bart, Marge, Lisa, and Maggie are on the train on their way back to Springfield & the EPA are keeping track of what everyone is saying by using hidden microphones.\\
'''Youd Expect:''' For Bart, Marge, and Lisa ''to keep quiet'' during the ride to Springfield.\\
'''Instead:''' They run their mouths and the EPA is able to hear them! They get captured, and end up back in the dome. [[{{SarcasmMode}} Way to go there, guys.]]

* In Season 12's Day Of The Jackanapes, Sideshow Bob brainwashes Bart to help him kill Krusty by rigging himself with plastic explosives. In order to train him for this task, he has Bart destroy a statue of Krusty outside the Krusty Burger. Incidentally, Chief Wiggum is right outside and notices what Bart and Sideshow Bob are doing.
** '''You'd Expect:''' Chief Wiggum to notice that something is up (Bart is Krusty's biggest fan ever) and get suspicious of Sideshow Bob.
** '''You'd Also Expect:''' Chief Wiggum to apprehend Sideshow Bob and Bart for vandalism.
** '''Instead''': Chief Wiggum notes that that he's glad that Bart is having fun.



'''Instead''': She says someone with a cultured mind and brain can't be evil. And she even said "He only tried to kill Bart." Ignoring the fact that in some episodes, Bob was trying to kill all of the Simpsons. Sure, Lisa does ask what his plan is and doesn't care until she sees her new "friend" lift an art piece that is supposed to be too heavy to lift alone. She later finds out what was his real plan, and surprise surprise, Bob tries to kill Bart and Lisa again.
