* {{Woolseyism}}:
** The Japanese dub handles the Ned's ShamingTheMob moment [[AtomicFBomb in a more explicit way]] than the original English version, especially against Lisa, bizarrely enough: While the other rants against the other characters are very demeaning in Japanese (or similar to the English ones), Ned seems to reserve the worst against Lisa, as he calls her "Little Professor Simpson" (Chibi Simpson-hakase) in a derogatory tone and he outright calls her "Shitty little bratty girl/bitch" (Kuso gaki onna).[[note]]In Japan, children aren't supposed to meddle in adult affairs, even if Lisa was trying to defend her older brother from being insulted by an adult, regardless if Flanders was right or not, hence why Flanders used very vulgar language on her. It should be noted this is not always universal, and even in Japan it would had landed Flanders (or anyone else in a similar situation) in serious trouble with the law.[[/note]]
** The same happens, through in less degree, in the Latin American Spanish dub: When addressing Marge, Flanders call her family as a "bunch of beasts" (Spanish: ''Hato de bestias''), with Bart he use an idiomatic phrase implying Bart will end begging for money as an adult (Spanish: ''¿Me regala una moneda, joven?'', i.e. "Can you give me some money, pal?", which is a very memetic phrase used in Mexico by beggars there), among many [[LostInTranslation insulting and very difficult to translate Mexican idioms]].

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Ned having a dream about snapping and going on a shooting spree may have been morbidly funny in 1994, particularly given its similarities to the 1966 University of Texas Clock Tower Shooting (and the movie based off of the incident, ''The Deadly Tower''). The plethora of mass shooting incidents in TheNewTens dilutes possible comedy within - in particular, the Las Vegas Shooting in October 2017, where a gunman fired out of the window of a high-rise hotel onto a country music festival, killing 58 and injuring hundreds.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Lenny & Carl mistake Homer driving in a "robot car" while Homer was hiding the driver Flanders. This aired before self-driving automobiles became marketable.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Homer gets conned out of some money by Bart who deceived him into believing he had tickets to a football game. He was instead given a wig coupon, which then leads to an ImagineSpot featuring him wearing a "Marge" wig, imitating her voice and muttering to himself, "I don't need her at all anymore." [[note]]Although in a later episode from that same season, "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E22SecretsOfASuccessfulMarriage Secrets of a Successful Marriage]]", we see that, yes, he does need her and would essentially ''die'' if he didn't have her to take care of him since he is unable to properly care for himself.[[/note]]
