Peewee football comes to Springfield as a means to fight childhood obesity, and when Homer becomes the coach, he promotes Bart to star player status despite the boy's lack of talent.
- Bait and Switch: During a game, Chief Wiggum showed up to arrest Nelson. Bart said he'd stand in for Nelson. Cut to him being arrested in Nelson's place.
- Fun with Acronyms: The store clerk asking Marge to spell "cup". "C-U-P. I wanna C-U—Oh, my God!"
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: The store clerk asking Marge to spell "cup". "C-U-P. I wanna C-U—Oh, my God!"
- In the flashback of Homer's gymnastic routine, we get two:
- Teenage Lenny wearing a T-shirt that reads, "Bull-Shirt." Take out the "r" in "Shirt" and you got it.
- Teenage Smithers' line, "Now, let's bring on the men," given the later episodes heavily hinting that he's a homosexual (and not just an overly sycophantic Yes Man who has a crush on his boss).
- Oh Crap: Homer when he realized Flanders wouldn't let him keep the teasing.
- Overly Narrow Superlative: Homer claimed Flanders was the worst coach Springfield's peewee football team ever had. Flanders was the only coach they ever had.
