* NoodleIncident: See RattlingOffLegal below.Aafter Kent Brockman says that a cure for "Pigskin Fever" is to take two tickets and go to the football game, a voice quickly says, "Warning: tickets not meant to be taken internally".

Added DiffLines:

** In a scene that usually gets cut from syndication, Homer plays his [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Rappin' Ronnie Reagan]] tape for the road trip the two families take to Lake Springfield. It's an actual real-life video/tape (and not a gag created by the writers), but he doesn't just say "Well" a lot like in the episode.

* YourTelevisionHatesYou: Subverted. Homer fails to win the tickets to the game, hits the radio and suddenly ''Two Tickets To Paradise'' by Eddie Money starts playing on another channel. After a moment of despair, however, he gets caught in the rhythm and sings along.

* EscalatingWar: The feud with Shelbyville iis mentioned, but we only see the final prank.
-->'''Lisa''': What's so special about this game anyway? It's just another chapter in the pointless rivalry between Springfield and Shelbyville. They built a mini-mall, so we built a bigger mini-mall. They made the world's largest pizza, so we burnt down their city hall.\\
'''Homer''': Heh heh heh. Yeah, they swore they'd get us back by spiking our water supply. But they didn't have the guts.\\
'''Marge''' ''(drinks a glass of water and then sees the walls start to run)'': Ooooh. The walls are melting again. ''(giggles)''


* DisneyAcidSequence: Shelbyville poisoned the Springfield water supply, causing Marge to see the walls melting and a turkey fly away after drinking a glass of water.

* AccidentalHeroism: Homer comes along with Ned to a homeless shelter and gets bored because Ned hands over soup to the needy in a very slow fashion, so he pushes him out of the way and starts to serve soup in a mad rush so they can get out of there faster. A reporter that is in the shelter notices this and takes a picture, and so Homer makes the news as a "passionate humanitarian".

* DisproportionateRetribution:
** One example of the hard-core rivalry between Shelbyville and Springfield is that Springfield responded to Shelbyville making the world's biggest pizza by ''setting the Shelbyville town hall on fire''.
** It's pretty obvious it's a nightmare, but still it's really weird to see Ned Flanders of all people going on a shooting spree because he secretly harbors ''that'' much hatred for Homer and his annoying antics.

* SurpriseCreepy: The final scene is the Simpsons spending a night in a haunted house in order to fulfill a will's "OnOneCondition". As we get a general shot of the very creepy house (with a bat flying around included), Homer tempts fate by saying that there is nothing wrong and then we get a weird sound and the whole family screaming in terror at ''something'' before cutting to credits with "evil" music.

* UnmanlySecret: Moe threatens to kill Ned if he ever makes public that he reads books to the homeless, such as "Literature/LittleWomen".
