Reference to Colleen

I don't think Chief O'Mannahan's name is a direct reference to Colleen O'Hallahan. I think it's a reference to 1) the perception of the New York City Police Department being a heavily Irish American organization, and 2) her very "mannish" characteristics. -- DeepSpaceHomer 20:27, 8 July 2011 (CEST)

How? No hint of her is made, and the character would only be a reference to our world's fictional characters, not a previous character on the EXACT SAME SHOW. And don't you come at me with the Waterfallls you know that's different--Icyweaner2999 22:01, 8 July 2011 (CEST)

I don't think it's a reference either. Why would they reference it like that? If it was a reference, it would be much more obvious.
@Icyweiner2999: I'm sorry, but I really can't understand your post. Who's "her" in "No hint of her is made"? What do you mean with "the character would only be a reference to our world's fictional characters, not a previous character on the EXACT SAME SHOW"? - akitalk 23:48, 8 July 2011 (CEST)

- I don't think it's a reference either, but O'Mannahan did make me think of Colleen too. Perhaps a simple note that O'Mannahan is the successor to Colleen as the Police Chief would suffice.
