* AccidentalAesop: If all else fails, there's always crying.
* BrokenBase: Pound Cake and Pumpkin Cake's extreme abilites. Some say it's perfectly justified, and all baby unicorns/pegasi go through this, only to lose these abilities when they grow. Others consider it a SeriesContinuityError.
* FanficFuel: How two Earth Ponies could produce a unicorn and pegasus baby.
* HilariousInHindsight: Twilight bluntly telling Pinkie that she didn't think she could handle it and offering to help. Come Season 7 where Twilight is proved an even bigger disaster at babysitting than Pinkie.
* NauseaFuel: Mr. Cake changing the twins diapers. ''[[{{Squick}} With his mouth]]''.
* {{Squick}}: See the above trope.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong:
** Several scenes use a riff on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquarela_do_Brasil "Aquarela do Brazil"]], [[OlderThanTheyThink most famously known today]] from the movie ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' [[http://youtu.be/Dvo6ChoKCF4?t=22s]].
** Also, Pinkie's "pig song" bears more than a small resemblance to the Chicken Dance.
* TastesLikeDiabetes:
** A majority (if not all) of the episode can be considered this, with the only notable exception being the AdultFear moment when Pinkie loses the babies. Leavened by the humor factor involved in Pinkie's existence.
** The show's crew has confirmed that the pig song is a spoof of other kids shows' tendencies that they consider themselves above.
* TearJerker: Oh god.....Pinkie Pie's crying may be over the top most of the time, but her crying in this episode is particularly emotional and this time played for drama.
* TheWoobie: Pinkie just wanted to spend more time with the twins - who she clearly adores. She learns how stressful it is taking care of them, and she's even resorted to yelling at them before she ultimately bursts into tears at the whole thing.
