    • Lou: Sure hope this Acme kit works.
      Chief Wiggum – who has somehow concluded that a giant rat has wreaked havoc at the mall – uses an ACME trap to catch the non-existant culprit. Acme, of course, is the mail-order company Wile E. Coyote patronized to purchase items to catch the Road Runner. Chief Wiggum tests the trap (a piece of cheese tied to an overhanging anvil) and is clonked just the same as the Coyote.
