* KarmaHoudini: No one seemed angry enough to beat the ever living crap out of Cartman after [[spoiler:Kyle found out Cartman has been farting on the burgers he was selling to people. He loses his business, but other than that Cartman got away scot free, most likely because everyone actually DID find them extremely delicious.]]

Added DiffLines:

* StoryArc: After a four-month hiatus, the two-episode story arc involving Stan living through his cynicism finally ends with everything going back to the way it was.

Added DiffLines:

* StatusQuoIsGod: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]]. Just as Stan was finally adjusting to the new changes, everything goes back to normal. Much to his dismay.


* WhoopiEpiphanySpeech: Stan, who has been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome and refusing to except the changes around him, gives one to Kyle after realising he doesn't want the status quo to return after all.

Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: The ResetButtonEnding mostly reverses "You're Getting Old"'s DownerEnding, but also reverses all morals learned from that ending, replacing them with a much darker one, especially in the context of the episode.
-->'''Sharon:''' As you get older you realize -- the best thing to do is just... stick with what you know.

Added DiffLines:

* BigShutUp: The opening scene in the classroom culminates in Stan angrily screaming for everyone to just shut up when their arguing gets on his nerves.

* TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness: Lampshaded. The cynics are convinced there's some group of masterminds behind the {{masquerade}} they believe they see through, but every time the topic comes up the identity of the masterminds changes multiple times. Aliens, robots from the future, genetically altered humans, rock creatures, and vampires are all put forth, and speculation is always capped off with a "or whatever,[[PrecisionFStrike fuck it]]"; all because the council's actual identity doesn't matter as much as their role in the narrative as vague, powerful antagonists.
