Recap: The Simpsons S 6 E 23 The Springfield Connection

After knocking out Snake when he goes to attack her in an alley, Marge gets a much-needed surge of adrenaline in her hum-drum life and decides to join the Springfield Police Force.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Action Mom: Marge becomes a strong, competent police officer while still keeping up with her housework.
  • Buffy Speak: Moe thinks "garage" sounds too fancy; he just calls them "car holes". Homer later uses the term himself.
  • Dirty Cop: The police at the end ignore the pants counterfeiting ring because they get to keep the pants. This causes Marge to quit.
  • Heel Realization: Homer after Marge saves his life from Hermann.
  • Off Model: In two different scenes Chief Wiggum's hair is black, not unlike his earliest appearances on the show.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Defied. Homer thinking that he's above the law now that Marge is a cop tries parking in three handicapped places and steals Marge's hat, and gets thrown in jail.
