'''Marge''': I'm sorry I had to arrest you, Homer, but what I did was right. Some day when you really need it you'll be happy there are dedicated cops like me out there.

* BullyingADragon: Being married to a police, Homer believes he's automatically above the law. When Marge, being on duty, discovers him breaking the law in a couple of ways (namely parking his car on spaces for disabled people and buying beer for teenagers), she tries to make him reconsider, but Homer has none of it and even rubs it in her face as he briefly takes her hat and plays with it. Naturally, it all gets him arrested.



* DirtyCop: The police at the end ignore the pants counterfeiting ring because they get to keep the pants. This causes Marge to quit.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Marge was originally designed to retain her BeehiveHairdo while in her police uniform. It got changed into a ponytail when it caused staging problems in certain scenes. Besides, if they'd kept the design, David Mirkin (who was the show runner at the time) would have asked them to change it anyway since it would go against the intent to portray Marge as a serious cop.

** With a bit of TakeThat: Homer laments that when he thought Marge going to the police academy, it would be fun and exciting like that movie: ''Film/{{Spaceballs}}''. Instead it had been painful and disturbing like ''Film/PoliceAcademy''.
