When Maggie does better than Lisa on an IQ test, Lisa becomes so despondent over no longer being the smart one that she tries to change her identity.
- Always Someone Better: Maggie to Lisa. Later subverted when it turns out Maggie only appeared smarter because of clues and hints Lisa was giving her.
Marge: All of my children are smart. Some are just smarter than the others.
Bart smiles ominously and puts his hand on Lisa's shoulder.
Bart: Welcome to the others!
- Shout-Out: Lisa has a Whatever Happened To Baby Jane inspired nightmare with her and Maggie in the characters' roles
- Zany Scheme: Parodied. Moe and Barney apparently have a Zany Scheme going that involves Moe pretending to be the Simpsons' butler and Barney pretending to be their maid. What this is meant to accomplish, we're never told; they just beg the Simpson family to play along and promise to explain everything later.
