Blackboard Joke: I will not buy a presidential pardon.
Couch Gag: The couch and TV are within the walls of a prison. As a siren sounds, the family, dressed in black and white jumpsuits, attempt to escape by burrowing their own underground tunnels. However, instead of escaping, each family member emerges from their tunnel and hops onto the couch. Homer clicks the TV on with a remote, just as the prison searchlight passes over them.
