      Billboard Gag: Cletus' Road Kill Diner: It's fender-pickin' good! (with Cletus holding a run over possum on a plate)
      Chalkboard Gag: Bart writing "I'm sorry I broke the blackboard" on a white board with a black marker.
      Couch Gag: In this extended Plymptoons short titled "Noir" (by Bill Plympton), Homer and Marge rendezvous at a seedy hotel for a secret tryst, but are interrupted when Bart and Lisa intrude, leaving the four to draw weapons at each other in a dark room. The standoff ends when Maggie turns on the lights and the four are seen in a friendlier manner. Now in a more normal color segment, Lisa has her saxophone, Marge is serving cool drinks, Bart has a small pack of popcorn, and Homer is holding a donut. In the next shot, they're sitting normally on the couch until Maggie fires a machine gun with bullets flying in the air.
