Added DiffLines:

** When Barney finds the bar in flames, the bar door is kicked open and Barney is seen in silhouette carrying two bulky shapes under his arms, implied to be Moe and Homer.

Added DiffLines:

* FallingInLoveMontage: Renee and Moe's becoming closer and falling in love is shown in a montage. They go to the park, Moe buys her balloons (''all'' of them, which makes some random kids cry); they go skating together (Moe gets run over by a horse-drawn carriage), and they ride on ''whales'' at the sea park while HoldingHands (and Moe's whale escapes with Moe still on its back). Set to "I'm a Believer" by Music/TheMonkees.


* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: At the end, Bart comments that there's a "balloon machine" in the bathroom. It's implied to actually be a condom dispenser.

Until he changes his mind and comes up with a ZanyScheme to fake their deaths so they can elope to Hawaii. [[SubvertedTrope Then she promptly walks out on him]].


Added DiffLines:

* UglyGuyHotWife: Renee is just Moe's girlfriend, but it applies. The trope is deconstructed because Moe is fully aware that Renee is out of his league, which prompts him to spend money frivolously on her in order to preserve the relationship. This leads him to committing insurance fraud once it becomes clear he can no longer keep the cash flow going.
