* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Even if a patient is lying or otherwise wrong about their symptoms, paramedics will not be allowed to kick them out of an ambulance like they did to Grampa after he confused his feelings about being in love with a stroke; they would still have to take him to the hospital and have a doctor properly assess him.

Added DiffLines:

* RamblingOldManMonologue: Happens over the end credits just as the lyrics wind down. It begins with Grandpa talking about taking a fancy to Jacqueline because her raspy voice reminded him of his old Victrola record player, and goes on to him rambling about lubricant before the Gracie Film logo shushes him.

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyPrepared: After Jacqueline accidentally swallows an engagement ring Burns placed in a glass of champagne, he simply produces a second one out of a soup tureen.

* ArtShift: Homer imagines the kids as freaks with pink skin, no overbites and five fingers ([[DontExplainTheJoke a.k.a. more akin to real human beings]]).

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Bart used Homer's credit card to buy something for $350. After getting the money from Mr. Burns, Bart confesses to him and hands him the money. Homer didn't seem to understand it was to make up for a loss considering what he planned to spend the money on.
