Homer uses the power of flatuence to communicate with people after getting paralyzed by a spider bite in "The Diving Bell and The Butterball," Flanders becomes a murderer for the Lord in "Dial 'D' for 'Diddly'," and Bart and Milhouse pose as the natives on an alien planet in order to steal a rare element in the ([[WereStillRelevantDammit rather dated]]) ''Avatar'' parody, "In the Na'vi."

!! Tropes:

* AffectionateParody: The ThreeShorts are parodies to ''SpiderMan'' and ''The Diving Bell and the Butterfly'', ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' and ''Film/{{Avatar}}''. Abe Simpson thought there would be one of ''BlackSwan''.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: After having his mind inserted into an Avatar, Bart wished for five minutes with his enemies. They then showed up as Avatars as well.
* BigNo: Homer when he realized his candy bag contained vegetables instead of candies.
* BrokenPedestal: Flanders learns that God [[spoiler:takes orders from the Devil and the Devil is sleeping with his deceased wife, Maude]].
* FridgeBrilliance: Kamala is the offspring of Kang (and thus the "next generation" in Kudos and Kang's family tree). Keeping in the shows theme of naming the aliens after characters from ''Franchise/StarTrek'', Kamala is named after one from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' (in this case, an arranged marriage bride who falls for Picard in "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS5E21ThePerfectMate The Perfect Mate]]").
* TemptingFate: Flanders asked how things could be worse. [[spoiler:His deceased wife was dating the devil]].
