** Bart's prank was way disproportional too, sending Homer to hospital due the beer can explosion. Downplayed, as he probably didn't expect it to happen and was deeply regretful about the whole situation.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasticVoyagePlot: Prof. Frink's solution to wake Homer from his coma, which is promptly rejected when it involves entering Homer's lower colon.


* MindScrew: While Homer and the family are reminiscing about Homer's past survival, Marge brings up Homer's coping skills, cueing a clip of the alien abuduction scene from [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E3TreehouseOfHorror Treehouse of Horror]], which is usually non-canon.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The origin of April Fools came from 16th century France, and actually had nothing to do with the pagans, nor was April 1 considered their New Year[[note]]The Assyrians celebrate New Years on April 1, on the other hand[[/note]]. However, the link with New Years is TruthInTelevision[[note]]in the early 16th century, March 25 was New Years Day in many locations around France, with celebrations lasting until April 1. Those who celebrate New Years on January 1 tend to mock those who celebrate it on any other date[[/note]].


Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithFire: In Lisa's story, the pagan tribe leader has the Christian family burned at the stake for insulting them with a fake jar of ram blood.


* RecycledAnimation: The episode is a clip show, thus uses a lot of clips from previous episodes. However, there is a twist on the formula, as the [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E8BartTheDaredevil Bart The Daredevil]] flashback contains new footage (we actually ''see'' when Homer falls down Springfield Gorge a second time instead of just hearing his cries of pain).



* StockFootage: The episode is a clip show, thus uses a lot of clips from previous episodes.

* MoralMyopia: Bart, in retaliation for a series of mean spirited April Fools pranks pulled by Homer, [[AprilFoolsPlot finally pulls one over on him]], only to accidentally send him into hospital (and getting in a coma afterwards). After Bart confesses to the prank, Homer wakes up and strangles him. This is just plain wrong, because Homer pulled some harmful if not potentially deadly pranks, including duct-taping Bart's eyes shut and putting milk in the fridge that had been next to a furnace for six weeks yet never apologized. Father of the year material he ain't, that's for sure.

Father of the year material he ain't, that's for sure. This may explain why Bart was not visibly punished aside from Homer's usual strangulation (see KarmaHoudini above).

Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Subverted--Bart did have a "guilt trip" at the end and got strangled by Homer upon his awakening, yet he didn't get any reprimanding for what he did.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: To "clip episodes" as a whole (being contractually obliged to do one), down to the title.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliceCodeForEverything: The Springfield Police have a single-digit code for bringing pretzels to a scene.


* BigEater: Homer temporarily recovers from his coma to reach the candy machine, prompting a repeat of his "Land of Chocolate" fantasy sequence.

* BigEater: Homer temporarily recovers from his coma belief that he'll never walk again to reach the candy machine, prompting a repeat of his "Land of Chocolate" fantasy sequence.


Added DiffLines:

* FromBadToWorse: Bart's prank lands Homer in the hospital where he's told he may never walk again. After making his way to the candy machine, Homer is put into his coma when the machine falls on him and the chocolate falls into his mouth, cutting off his breathing.

Added DiffLines:

* EverythingMakesAMushroom: The can of Duff beer that Bart stuck into a paint mixer was so fizzled up, the resulting mushroom cloud was seen by Chief Wiggum and Lou a few blocks away.

'''Lou:''' We need pretzels! I repeat: pretzels!
