* NoodleIncident: Marge mentions an unspecified time when a man named Anthony Michael Hall (who may or may not have been the former teen actor from the Brat Pack movies of the 1980s and a brief, yet notable stint as a ''SaturdayNightLive'' cast member[[note]]At 17 years old, Anthony Michael Hall was the youngest white male cast member ever hired and the youngest overall[[/note]]) dug up the Simpsons' backyard.
* TheOtherDarrin: InUniverse: PlayedForLaughs -- During the joke about how networks love animation because they don't pay the actors squat, Ned Flanders comes in and adds, "Plus, they can replace the voices and no one can tell the diddly-ifference." For the sake of that joke, Karl Wiedergott (a featured voice actor who joined the show during its tenth season) voiced Ned Flanders (who is regularly voiced by HarryShearer).
* SelfDeprecation: Lisa suggests that mid-season is just a dumping ground for shows that weren't good enough for the fall line-up. Guess [[Series/TheSimpsons what show]] premiered in December of 1989, well after the fall premiers.

** The initial detectives' appearances and behavior in ''Police Cops'' and the show itself were modeled after ''Series/MiamiVice''.



** At the environmental party, Homer refuses to talk to ''SNL'' producer and co-creator LorneMichaels, who was actually voiced by former ''SNL'' cast member HarryShearer[[note]]who has gone on record in stating that he didn't like his time on ''SNL'' during the fifth season [and later, the tenth, under Dick Ebersol] and begged NBC to make him showrunner for season six so he can mold ''SNL'' into what he wanted it to be. When Shearer learned that NBC hired Jean Doumanian [a decision they would later regret], he left the show along with the remnants of the "Not Ready for Primetime" cast.[[/note]]

** The aforementioned comment about Anthony Michael Hall and how it was a coincidence that some ''other'' man with the same name stole Homer's car radio.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In-universe: ''Police Cops'' wasn't originally supposed to be a series. It was supposed to be a comedy about a psychologist on-board the ''R.M.S. Titanic'' starring Annie Potts and Jeremy Piven, but was scrapped because the idea scared the hell out of them, so they came up with a cop drama. Also, ''Police Cops'' was supposed to be called ''Badge Patrol'', but they didn't like the title.
