* 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.

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Defied. Homer, thinking that he's above the law now that Marge is a cop, tries to park in three handicapped places, buy beer for the three bullies (even though Kearney is said to be of the legal age to drink in America), and steals Marge's hat, and gets thrown in jail. He becomes angry with Marge afterwards, but later apologizes.

* IllPretendIDidntHearThat: Marge offers to turn a blind eye to Homer buying beer for teenagers as long as he moves his car away from where he's parked it across three handicapped spaces. He doesn't, instead opting to take her hat and do a mocking impersonation of her, so she arrests him anyway.
