* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: The Professor identifies Bender as "gentle Bender" when Dwight and Cubert claim he's being used to brew beer (though somewhat justified that he would think that, as it's been both implied and stated that the Professor is a senile, amoral crackpot[[note]]and "Brannigan Begin Again" reveals that he's terrible with remembering who works at Planet Express[[/note]] and it's also an excuse for the writers to make a pun on the obscure TV show ''Gentle Ben''[[note]]which was also used on ''The Simpsons'' episode "Homer Badman", on the sequence where the family is channel-surfing and all the TV shows are either news reports about Homer being an alleged sexual predator or talk shows where women come forward with claims that Homer Simpson sexually harassed them, one of which was a talk show with a bear named Gentle Ben as the host[[/note]]).

Added DiffLines:

* MovingTheGoalposts: When Awesome Express makes more money than Planet Express, Hermes, instead of being proud, points out that they don't have a building conference table or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Zoidberg]].


* DumbassHasAPoint: Combined with ArmorPiercingQuestion--after bottling Bender's beer, Dwight and Cubert come in and start complaining about him, Fry and Leela not delivering any of the papers and how they had to deliver all the papers themselves, Fry gets suspicious and says, "How were you guys able to deliver a million papers in an hour?"



** Also so ThrowItIn. Fry's line wasn't in the script; it's a blooper Billy West made when they were recording, but it fit so perfectly they had to use it.

* CassandraTruth: In an attempt to distract Farnsworth and Hermes from his and Dwight's pranking the crew, Cubert tattles to them about Fry, Leela and Bender making bootleg beer inside Bender on company property. Not only does Farnsworth not believe them, but it backfires on them spectacularly.
-->'''Farnsworth:''' Accusing gentle Bender of a misdeed? That's the last straw!



* InstantlyProvenWrong: Cubert accuses the crew of using Bender as a still for brewing beer. Bender immediately calls out "Lies! Lies and slander!", then burps out some suds.

* PapaWolf: Farnsworth and Hermes attempt to be this when Mr. Horrible Gelatinous Blob insults Cubert and Dwight. They wind up in the hospital, but their sons are still proud of them.

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: After Cubert and Dwight bring a wheelbarrow carrying a mountain of money, both Farnsworth and Cubert can only gawk at their earnings as if they're impressed the kids did so well. Cue the next shot of the kids complaining they really ''didn't'' get impressed by that.

Added DiffLines:

* RejectedApology: Mr. Horrible Gelatinous Blob initially refuses Dwight and Cubert's apology.
-->'''Horrible Gelatinous Blob''': You can shove your apology into the bottom of your one-way digestive system.
-->'''Farnsworth''': Now see here. We assured our sons that you'd accept their apology.
-->'''Horrible Gelatinous Blob''': Aww. Tell you what, I'll accept their apology when they kiss my ass! Which I don't have!

** ThrowItIn: Fry's messed-up response was actually a mistake on Creator/BillyWest's part, but it was so funny and fitting for Fry's character that it was used.
