** On top of that, Bart sneakily taking the hot chocolate Flanders offers when Flanders isn't there to judge him. There's something sad about how ''small'' Bart's "Oh my god" is, like this is the first time anyone's actually made him anything like this.

** This may be [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct the single finest performance]] that Julie Kavner has given in her history with the franchise. David Silverman had her record the scene one hundred times to [[EnforcedMethodActing make her sound properly emotionally drained]], and it shows: We're used to hearing Marge anxious, blissful, furious, even a weepy mess. But her [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness defeated, soul-bearing tone]] here makes the whole thing ''devastating''. Marge giving up on the man she loves to save her town is understandable but still an unwanted circumstance, and Kavner mines every nugget of emotion possible from the read.
