Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
"Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The episode first aired on December 29, 1996; almost 9 years before Hurricane Katrina caused problems in New Orleans, but when one looks at this episode today...
Fridge Brilliance: The Springfielders' horrible attempt at rebuilding the Flanders home was frustrating enough, but when you remember that they looted Ned's Leftorium store with little reason, it's no wonder Ned completely snapped and let loose his fury upon them.
Fridge Horror: If Flanders' Verbal Tic of adding "diddly" and "doodly" at the end of every word really is one of the side effects of suppressing anger, then he must be suppressing his anger all the time (even in writing, as seen when Homer reads one of his notes on "Summer of 4'2''").
The Woobie: Ned Flanders is put through Hell throughout this episode, briefly becoming a Jerkass Woobie when he rants against the people of Springfield.
