Homer's mother, Mona, is finally released from prison — only to return due to a technicality.
- Comically Missing the Point: While announcing the Oops Patrol, Kent Brockman showed a photograph of Marge and Homer asked who got the prize.
- Off on a Technicality: Discussed. As Mr. Burns used a technicality to send Mona back to prison, Homer complained technicalities should get people out of prison.
- Take That: Homer plans to hide his mother at a place nobody goes and chooses Disney's park in California.
