* ParentalHypocrisy: NegativeContinuity aside, Lois telling off Meg for dating a convict doesn't seem so in-place when you remember that she was once arrested for shoplifting. Same goes for Peter, who has been arrested far more times than Lois.

Same goes for Peter, who has been arrested far more times than Lois. This later gets played for laughs when Peter says Meg should be careful who she gets involved with--immediately before getting a call from the bull who raped him earlier demanding him for "some coitus".

** Peter. Chris even lampshades this: "For God's sake Dad, have some humility, it'll save your life!"
** Even Luke gets this at one point. While running from Joe, a handicapped cop, he thought it was a good idea to run downhill, allowing Joe to get the edge needed to re-arrest him. Lampshaded by Meg.

* MoreThanMindControl: Let's see...Meg gets snitched by Brian, scolded by her parents, forbidden to see the inmate she fell for again, forced to watch as said inmate is re-arrested, and has to go to jail herself for harboring him, ''all in one day''. Then, once in prison, she had to fight for her life, and was probably raped by an inmate or two. By the time her prison sentence is up, this experience has changed her, to say the least.

* TheStoolPigeon: Brian. Justified in that he's shown to actually be concerned for Meg's safety rather than wanting to get her in hot water. Meg, however, doesn't appreciate this one bit.
