Marge: "Homer, I don't think you should wear a short-sleeved shirt with a tie."
Homer: "But Sipowicz does it!"
Ah, Detective Sipowicz... what a groundbreaking character! Not only a model for the many anti-hero cops that followed, but (one of) the first characters on network TV to:
Show his bare ass
Wear a tie with a short-sleeved shirt
Was Sipowicz Jewish? That's a clear no: he is a Catholic, who in one episode hallucinates about Jesus. Dennis Franz, on the other hand, does have some Jewish heritage.
Homer: "I wish I was Sipowicz..."
Don't we all?
