Homer becomes the new Grim Reaper (not unlike the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode that [[RecycledScript did the same story]]), Professor Frink is a MadScientist trying to build a corporeal body for the spirit of his dead father (played by none other than the inspiration for Professor Frink's character, Jerry Lewis), and Bart and Milhouse buy a stopwatch that manipulates time.
* AndThisIsFor: When Homer killed the Grim Reaper, he said it was for Snowball and Kennedy.
* BigNo: Homer's reaction upon the idea of a world without death meaning [[TakeThat Jim Belushi would never be cancelled]].
* GroinAttack: That was how the Grim Reaper's robe forced Homer to take on the job.
* RecycledScript: As mentioned above, the first story was done before on the ''Family Guy'' episode "Death is a Bitch" (where Peter writes on his hospital bill that he's dead to get out of paying for it, and the Grim Reaper forces Peter to take his job after Death breaks his ankle)
