* NeverFoundTheBody: Lunch Lady Doris got a job at Springfield Elementary School because no other school would hire a woman accused of murdering her husband. She commented she wasn't convicted because of this trope, even though she named her latest dish "Chicken [[ImAHumanitarian Pete]] Pie." It may have been a FreudianSlip, but given the show's dark humor in recent episodes, it probably wasn't.
