[S31E17] Highway To Well LINK

  • Brick Joke: Homer sneaks into the party by saying he was Kevin Smith's father. Later, when the manor burns down, Kevin Smith runs up to Homer and calls him "Dad".

  • Disaster Dominoes: Homer trying to light a vaping pen causes a chain reaction that burns Tatum's resort to the ground.

  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Marijuana is legal, but Homer's perfectly above-board pot den isn't licensed to serve snacks to customers, and Marge is recruited to get it shut down by bringing in a jar of cheese puffs. The irony of this is played up by having Moe attempt to flush the snacks down the toilet when the authorities show up.

  • Drugs Are Good: A jar full of cannabis-infused gummies turns cranky Agnes Skinner into a nice person. In fact, the whole purpose of the Well + Good store is to promote wellness through the use of its cannabis products, although its staff use the stuff just to get high.

  • Expy: Drederick's longstanding status as one of Mike Tyson is strengthened in this episode when he's given a face tattoo like Tyson.

  • Fun with Subtitles: When Marge mentions that Maggie is learning Mandarin, her pacifier sucking gets Chinese subtitles.

  • Getting High on Their Own Supply: At the opening of The Dedrick, a drunken Homer announces that Marge, the face of medicinal marijuana in Springfield, never partook of her own product. Marge takes a couple of drops of marijuana oil to prove them wrong, and starts tripping. Her coworkers are also revealed to have been high the whole time.

  • Hidden Purpose Test: Marge is among a group of people who come in to fill in forms to get jobs at the marijuana dispensary. She is the only one hired after she's the only one to mention that one of the employees is wearing her name tag upside down; they needed someone with motherly instincts to make their product seem more respectable.

  • Hypocritical Humor: Homer encourages Marge to accept Tatum's job of selling drugs... drugs that the kids should never use.

  • Jerkass Ball: Marge, after Homer starts a rival marijuana business and eventually gets him shut down. Although, she was still pretty reluctant.

  • Justice by Other Legal Means: The FBI can't bust Homer and Moe's pot selling operation now that marijuana is legal; however, since they are not licensed for serving food, they can bust them for offering snacks to their customers. So they have Marge give Homer a large jar of cheese puffs and wait for him to offer some to the clients. (They have to wait a while as Homer just starts gorging himself.)

  • Marijuana Is LSD: Averted. When Marge is invited to try some of the product she was selling, she finds herself in a panicked state with weird sensations and vision depth-of-field issues. While not universal, those are more common traits of marijuana use and she doesn't get full hallucinations.

  • Ninja Prop: When Homer tries to have an Imagine Spot, Bart destroys the thought bubble before it can form.

  • Oblivious Guilt Slinging: Just before Marge sets him up, Homer praises her as the most loyal wife ever.

  • Shout-Out: Bart mentions that fast-food chains are marketing to stoners now, cutting to a commercial where Krusty is advertising meals to satisfy the munchies, in a parody of restaurants like Jack in the Box serving "munchie meals".

  • Slobs vs. Snobs: There is a conflict between pot dispensing as a high-end business and pot dispensing as (roleplaying) underground dealing.

  • Too Dumb to Live: Former boxer Dedrick Tatum stated that he used his own face to block punches.

  • Too Kinky to Torture: The other ladies seem to enjoy their Drill Sergeant Nasty mentors.Gym Coach: Come on, I want to see you bitches suffer!Everyone: Woohoo!Marge: Am I the only one who heard that?

  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Thanks to the effects of marijuana, Seymour's mom is finally nice to him.Seymour: Marge, thank you. My mother's happy, I'm happy... or at least much less miserable.

  • Victory Is Boring: After it was legalized, ordering weed has become far more complex and regulated, which for guys like Otto who just want to score some weed find frustrating. This leads to Homer and Moe starting their own Marijuana business that roleplays with the customers and acts like it's still illegal.

  • Where the Hell Is Springfield?: We get another clue to where the hell it may be. Only 11 states have weed legalized for general use.note Technically, there's also the District of Columbia, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands, but most episodes seem to suggest the Simpsons live in the mainland United States.
