    • Old Woman: How much for the porcelain poodles? Stan: $178,000. Old Woman: I may be back!

    • Peter: Okay, Terry, what is Greg's favorite appetizer? Terry: Oh, that's easy. It's... potato skins! Greg: No, it's wasabi tuna in a raddichio sauce. Terry: Even I think that's gay.

    • Dr. Gupta: When you ran over your wife - twice - it caused her brain to detach from her central nervous system. She's what we, in the medical profession, call "a husk." Roger: I've heard of that. Dr. Gupta: We can reattach her brain, but it's an experimental procedure your insurance won't cover. Stan: That's my wife. I don't care how much it is, I'll pay it! Dr. Gupta: It's $178,000. Stan: What if I don't need her to talk?

    • Dr. Gupta: Hello, I'm Dr. Gupta. Yes, I'm a woman. I suppose you have a problem with that. Stan: Uh, no. Is my wife gonna be okay? Dr. Gupta: Are you questioning my competence? Stan: No, I'm just concerned about my wife. Dr. Gupta: Really? 'Cause the way you're looking at me, it seems like you're concerned with something else. (Opens her shirt and flashes Stan)

    • Stan: What the hell was that? Francine: (After being run over by Stan) I'm not hurt! It's a miracle! Roger: (Inside the car; to Stan) I think you're still on top of it. Back up. (Stan backs up and runs over Francine again) Stan: Oh, my God! I hit Francine! Roger: We should probably leave a note.

    Notes (10)

    • Captain Monty's eye patch is over his left eye in the "Best Buddies" show, however, it was previously shown covering his right eye.

    • This episode premiered on [adult swim] on June 15, 2008.

    • This was the first episode in production for season 2, but aired in season 1.

    • Music: When Stan places the phony phone call to Hayley's love interest, he instructs the popular guy to go to the 'West End' of the mall. The entire message is in the popular girl's voice except for a one-second long musical clip. Stan drops in a sample from the 'Pet Shop Boys' hit from the 1980's titled 'West End Girls'. Also, the song played during the montage where Stan and Roger get drunk and have fun is "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen. Furthermore, the song played on the boombox that Klaus cries to is "Circle" by Edie Brickell. The line Stan sings while getting probed by Roger is the start of The Star-Spangled Banner, the American national anthem.

    • Channel 7 (AU) airdate: May 25, 2006.

    Trivia (4)

    • When Francine is putting things in Stan's suitcase at the start of the episode, Roger's wine glass appears and disappears between shots.

    • When Roger wears Stan's "Federal Boobie Inspector" shirt in the car, the "s" in "Inspector" is missing.

    • The hosts of Best Buddiez! were "famous best buddies" Peter Scolari and Wendy Joe Sperber. Although Wendy Joe Sperber was in fact part of the show Bosom Buddies, Peter Scolari and Tom Hanks were the best buddies referenced in the title.

    • How did Stan and Roger leave Atlantic City so quietly when Roger lost his disguise overnight?

    Allusions (5)

    • Fatal Attraction When Stan wants to hang up on Roger, he says the famous line from the film Fatal Attraction, "I will not be ignored, Dan." Dan was switched to Stan.

    • Gypsy When Stan has a yard sale in order to raise money for Francine's expensive hospital bills, he tries to sell Roger's porcelain dogs. Roger mentions that their names are "Gypsy Rose Lee" and "Mama Rose", a reference to the main characters in the musical Gypsy.

    • The Newlywed Game Best Buddiez!, the game show featured in this episode, is a parody of the show.

    • Bosom Buddies: Hosts The hosts of Best Buddiez! are introduced as America's favorite Bosom Buddies, Peter Scolari and Wendy Jo Sperber. These two both appeared in the show Bosom Buddies. The main characters of the show were played by Scolari and Tom Hanks (who is obviously too famous now to host a junky entertainment show).

    • Episode Title: Roger 'n' Me While the episode appears to share its title with the 1989 Michael Moore documentary Roger & Me, the deliberate shortening of the 'and' to 'n' forms a joke based on a British term for sexual intercourse, thus cleverly describing the plot of the episode.
