* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The cat burglar's musical theme is a copyright-friendly version of ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther'' theme music, and the final stretch of the episode features the trope applied to the music from ''It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World''.



* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: PlayedForLaughs. While the cat burglaries are worthy of above-the-flap placement, the secondary story -- "Man Marries Woman in Wedding Ceremony" -- is less so.

-->'''Quimby''': Uh, that reminds me, er, here's your monthly kickback.
-->'''Wiggum''': ''[Utterly dumbfounded]'' [[LampshadeHanging You just...you couldn't have picked a worse time!]]

* InstantlyProvenWrong: After people decide the Springfield Cat Burgler is not so bad after all and want him released from jail.

* AffablyEvil: Terry Molloy. If it weren't for his stealing and, at the end, tricking everyone into going on a wild goose chase so he can escape prison, he'd just be affable. If anything, Springfield's attempts to deal with the cat burglaries cause more damage than he does.
