!This episode provides examples of the following tropes:

* AllMenArePerverts: [=LBJ=]'s motivation for making him into [=JFK=] is because he wants all of the sex the president was entitled to.
* AmericansAreCowboys: [=LBJ=] is always seen wearing a cowboy hat and has a thick Texas accent.[[note]]No shock, since the actual Lyndon B. Johnson was from Texas.[[/note]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: How did the old Johnson Household make sure that a cow was dead? ''Have sex with the wound of course!''
* DeathByIrony: Abraham Lincoln died historically with a bullet to the back of a head. Here, [=LBJ=] loses his patience waiting behind him and does just that (especially since [=JFK=] had just died the same way).
* DistractingDisambiguation: [=LBJ=] tries being dramatic in referring to Frankenstein as a "monster-doctor", only to clarify that he is not a monster, but a doctor ''for'' monsters or is monster-''like'', etc.
* ItsLikeIAlwaysSay:
--> [=LBJ=]: Well, I've always said, "nature's great and all, but until I get to see me [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext a horse with fangs]], I'm not interested."
* ShaggyDogStory: The surgery is a success and [=LBJ=] now has his brain in [=JFK=]'s body. What happens right after? He gets bitten by a werewolf. Lousy luck.
* SurgicalImpersonation: [=LBJ=] originally goes to Frankenstein not to resurrect a freshly-dead [=JFK=], but to make ''him'' look like the then-dead president. The plan is then changed to make a BrainTransplant instead.
