O'Connor is a traffic cop made from a gumball machine in a cutaway set up by Brian in "Meg Stinks!" when he declares himself a disgrace to his species when he has trouble adjusting to life outside of the house when he is banished following an encounter with a skunk.

As O'Connor stands motionless in an intersection and cars crash around him, two fellow cops note that he is a disaster, but one admits he was a great gumball machine that should not have been promoted.
