* BrickJoke: When Ruth shows up to pick up Marge, she pops in a tape cassette, only for it to start playing [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunshine,_Lollipops_and_Rainbows "Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows"]] (she then swapped it out for a "[[Music/GunsNRoses Welcome to the Jungle]]" one). Later, when Chief Wiggum starts chasing Ruth and Marge, he pops in a tape cassette. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunshine,_Lollipops_and_Rainbows Guess which song.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EntitledToHaveYou: Subverted. When a roughneck starts coming onto Marge, she tells him she's married. His immediate reaction implies that he's going to take her by force until Marge firmly states that she just told him she's not interested. It's only after getting rejected twice that the guy becomes a gentleman and backs down.
