During a neighborhood rummage sale, Homer sees a moving van at a vacant house across the street from his home and learns that the new neighbors are former President George H.W. Bush and ex-First Lady Barbara Bush, whom everyone (except Bart and Homer) welcomes with open arms.

!!!This episode provides examples of:
* BerserkButton: Homer's rights being violated by Bush after learning what happened to Bart...
-->'''Homer''': First Bush invades my home turf, then he takes my pals, then he makes fun of the way I talk... probably. Now he steals my right to raise a disobedient, smart-alecky son! Well, that's it!
* BlatantLies:
--> '''Homer''': He ''spanked'' you? You, Bart Simpson?\\
'''Bart''': I begged him to stop, but he said it was for the good of the nation! [[labelnote:Note]](Of course, in reality, Bush gave Bart a couple of ''very'' light slaps and told him to go home and think about what he's done, with Bart walking away with a confused look on his face.)[[/labelnote]]
* CoolOldLady: Barbara Bush is portrayed is being very tolerant, even amused at Bart Simpson's antics, unlike her husband, and forces Bush to apologize.
* DiscoDan: Disco Stu makes his first appearance as the punchline to the fact that Homer's jacket said "Disco Stu" when it was supposed to say "Disco Stud".
* DisproportionateRetribution: The cycle of revenge between Homer and Mr. Bush, all over Bush "stealing" Homer's rights.
* FreezeFrameBonus: Right after Bart accidentally shreds Bush's memoirs, a sliver of paper briefly flies in front of the screen with the words "[[DanQuayle V.P. Quayle]]...[[TakeThat embarrassment]]."
* GrumpyOldMan: George Bush, especially with Bart around.
* HandsGoDown: When Bush gives a speech at the Elk Club with a rainbow wig glued to his head.
-->'''Bush''': Any questions?\\
''(all reporters put their hands up)''\\
'''Bush''': Keeping in mind that I already explained about my hair.\\
''(reporters put their hands down)''
* HollywoodToneDeaf: Apu sings an off-key version of Music/CheapTrick's "Dream Police".
* ItsThePrincipleOfTheThing: Even after finding out why George was mad at Bart, Homer still wanted to beat him up.
--> '''Homer''': For the last time, Bush, apologize for spanking my boy!\\
'''Bush''': Never! You make him apologize for destroying my memoirs!\\
'''Homer''': ''(to Bart)'' You didn't tell me you destroyed his memoirs. ''(to Bush)'' NEVER!
* TheKlutz: Both Homer and Gerald Ford discover this as a point they have in common when they both trip simultaneously.
* NotHelpingYourCase:
--> '''Marge''': Grampa, I know in your day, spanking was common. But Homer and I don't agree on that kind of punishment.\\
'''Grampa''': And that's why your no-good kids are runnin' wild!\\
''(Lisa, quietly reading a book, looks up and smiles)''
* NotSoDifferent: Between Homer and Bush (negatively). And also between Homer and UsefulNotes/GeraldFord (positively).
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: This episode was based on one of the writers actually playing pranks on George H.W. Bush as a kid and wasn't meant to be a political attack on him. However, since George H.W. Bush and Barbara criticized ''TheSimpsons'' during its early years for contributing to the alleged downfall of society, a lot of viewers have stated that this episode had political undertones.
* SeriesContinuityError: Admittedly the series was never big on continuity, but the house and walled gate across the street is mostly relegated to this episode only.
* SeriousBusiness: Homer actually goes through his word in this one.
* ShapedLikeItself: "It's all in the Bible, son. It's the prankster's bible."
* ShoutOut: The episode itself is one to [[ComicStrip/DennisTheMenaceUS the American version of Dennis the Menace]].
* [[SmarterThanYouLook Smarter Than They Look]]: Homer and Bart coming up with ways to get at George Bush that must have taken a lot of skill and planning.
* SongParody: [[Music/TheBeeGees "Table Five".]]
