Added DiffLines:

* DeusExMachina: The alligator being alive all along, allowing the Simpsons to go.


Added DiffLines:

* FauxAffablyEvil: The sheriff is pretty "aw shucks" in attitude, but he has no problem arresting an entire family and sentencing them to lifetime imprisonment and using them as slave labor with the same lassitude.


Added DiffLines:

* WardensAreEvil: Both the sheriff and his assistant take care of the Simpsons' sentence, and the assistant whips Homer for '''any''' reason he can find (such as saying any answer Homer gives is wrong -- when Homer actually asks about this, the man says Homer is ''forbidden of listening anything'') and use them as slave labor. Putting the ''whole family'' in lifetime imprisonment because of Homer's stupidity puts them here.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: The sheriff is a cruel man willing to allow innocent children (including an ''infant'') to rot in prison for life because their father's crimes. His initial ReasonableAuthorityFigure is actually a lie; he's being paid by beer companies to turn the other cheek during spring break; once that's over, he'll be his true, evil self to criminals and their families.


Added DiffLines:

* SinsOfOurFathers: Bart, Lisa, and Maggie are sentenced to life imprisonment by Florida for Captain Jack's (apparent) death only because they are Homer's children.
