* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Patty's sexuality. In this episode, she is established as being willingly celibate [[note]](while Selma has had celibacy thrust upon her and is trying to break it by finding a man to marry or, at least, have sex with so she can have a child and not die alone)[[/note]] due to her hatred of men[[note]]Homer in particular[[/note]], but has a crush on [=MacGyver=] just like her sister and warms up to Skinner (until she realizes how miserable Selma is). In later episodes (starting with "There's Something About Marrying"), it's established that Patty is a lesbian and has known about her sexual orientation since she was a child (while Marge was either too naive or in denial about it).

* MayDecemberRomance: Played with. At first, Patty is reluctant as normal and even goes as far as using martial arts on him to keep Skinner's romantic advances at bay. However she warms up to Skinner and even kisses him at least once onscreen. However due to her loyalty and protectiveness to her sister and later on in the series, her lesbianism, it stops.
