- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The comet heading to earth is kinda eerie when you think about Chelyabinsk meteor that hit Russia in 2013.
- One-Scene Wonder: The Hysterical Man at the town meeting who cries out to Professor Frink, "Quit stalling! WHAT'S THE PLAN?!"
- What an Idiot!: Bart having his plans for his "Big Butt Skinner" balloon in his pockets (blueprint, notarized photos, and some alternate titles for the balloon). If he was any kind of master prankster (even at the tender age of 10), he would have hidden or destroyed the evidence, but, being the Book Dumb troublemaker that he is, that didn't happen.
- Woolseyism: Bart's "Race you to Utah, Mulhouse" quip when he tries to run away from Skinner is changed in the Latin American translation to "run to Patagonia", which takes Run for the Border Up to Eleven. In Italian, instead, it became "to Mexico".
