Added DiffLines:

* BillyElliotPlot: Parodied, actually predating the trope namer by 5 years. Bart is forced to join the ballet class after all the other PE activities had been taken, and to his surprise turns out to really enjoy it. On his first recital (in front of the entire school) he performs in a [[PaperThinDisguise Paper Thin]] mask to conceal his identity. When the other boys are moved by the performance, Bart reveals himself. [[SubvertedTrope The others then rush the stage to beat him up]].

* BaitAndSwitch: As Richard and Lewis rush to sign up for a sport for gym, Lewis says that if Bart and Milhouse miss out, it's T.S. for them. We then cut to the school's swimming pool and see that by "T.S." he meant Tethered Swimming, which consists of kids like Ralph having to swim while tied to the edge of the pool so they don't actually move.
