While at a nail salon, Marge and Lisa argue over whether or not a woman can be smart, beautiful, and powerful all at once, which leads to yet another ''Simpsons'' anthology show, featuring four stories of women trying to survive in a man's world: Aunt Selma defending England as Queen Elizabeth I, Lisa in a non-copyright-infringing retelling of Disney's ''Snow White'', Marge pushing Homer to be a great Shakespearean actor in a modern-day version of ''Macbeth'', and Maggie fighting against conformity in a parody of Ayn Rand's ''The Fountainhead''.
* BaitAndSwitch: At the diamond mine, the dwarves use their pickaxes to hit the buttons of the panel that controls the mine's machinery.
* OffWithHisHead: One of Elizabeth I's suitors was Ralph Wiggum, who shouted "Off with ''my'' head!"
* RiddleForTheAges: Lenny asks why Grumpy needs a pickaxe if he works at marketing. Grumpy says Lenny would know if he worked at marketing.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: While singing, the dwarves claimed that song wasn't like any the viewers heard before.
* YouWannaGetSued: The last time the dwarves were heard singing a parody of the song sung by the Dwarves in Disney's Show White, they claimed they'd "claim fair use" "if Disney sues".
* WritingAroundTrademarks: The dwarves in Lisa's version of Snow White don't have the same names the dwarves in Disney's version have. There's a close call with Doc... tor Hibbert.
