!!This episode contains examples of:
* AnythingButThat: Lionel Hutz imagines what life would be like without lawyers, which features people from every race, ethnic background, creed, and color dancing under a rainbow while a non-copyright-infringing version of "I'd Like to Teach The World to Sing" plays. It sickens Hutz.
* AsHimself: David Crosby
* BitingTheHandHumor: Flanders thinks his family falling ill from the Asian flu epidemic is God's way of punishing him for watching and laughing at ''Series/MarriedWithChildren''.
--> '''Lionel Hutz''': I move for a 'bad court thingy'.\\
'''Judge Snyder''': You mean a mistrial?\\
'''Hutz''': Yeah! That's why you're the judge, and I'm the... law-talking... guy.\\
'''Snyder''': You mean lawyer?\\
'''Hutz''': Uh, right.
* EpicFail: Lionel Hutz gets busted on jury-tampering by submitting the verdict himself...on a cocktail napkin, that ''still'' says "guilty," and "guilty" is spelled wrong.
* GilliganCut: After Marge was found guilty, Apu commented on how safe the Kwik-E-Mart was. Cut to Snake and an unnamed criminal loading the store onto a flatbed truck and hauling ass to Mexico.
* HarsherInHindsight: The Asian flu epidemic that plagues Springfield on the first half of the episode stops being funny, considering the hysteria over SARS, the bird flu, and the swine flu that happened in the mid-to-late 2000s.
* SpecialGuest: Creator/PhilHartman as Lionel Hutz and Troy [=McClure=]
* TakeThat: Without the income from Marge's Rice Krispies squares, the only President whose statue the town could buy was JimmyCarter. The town rioted against the idea of homaging him. According to DVD commentary, the writers ''do'' think Jimmy Carter was a bad President, but not as bad as GeorgeWBush.
