* {{Jerkass}}: Homer. Even after goofing up with introducing Patty to Skinner instead of Selma, not only does he show no regret/remorse for it, [[KickTheDog but he continues to badmouth her]] and telling Marge, who's genuinely concerned about her, that she's a "heifer" amongst other things and introduces her to one of the worst choices for a boyfriend, his drunken best friend Barney[[note]]Albeit this was years before his CharacterDevelopment into something beyond just an alcoholic.[[/note]] Also, even if Selma was/is a jerk to Homer, back then, she was the more sympathetic of the two sisters and certainly was in this episode and actually more friendlier towards Homer than Patty ever was.



* WouldHitAChild: Skinner wishes he could still do this after Bart's latest.

to:

* WouldHitAChild: TheOneThatGotAway: The twins go to a wedding of two coworkers that fell in love by chance (he initially was going to sit next to Selma in the cafeteria, but Patty scared him away, only to sit next to the woman he would eventually marry.
