    • Tricia Takenowa: Sex: Some people prefer to do it anonymously. What sort of person would do that, you might ask? Well, I'm about to find out. I just met a man at a bar, and now he's in the bathroom, possibly doing drugs. (Quagmire enters the room) Stay tuned for more on my report. Back to you, Diane.
      Quagmire: I've never done a Spanish chick before. O'le!

    • Bob Barker: Help control the pet population and have your pet spayed or neutered. Brian: Oh, just die already.

    • (Brian begins to pee in the supermarket) Stewie: You're URINATING! So, it's been you all along. Oh, this is too perfect! I've been taking the blame for Rex!

    • Brian: Okay, just to be clear, we were talking about me being in love with you and you rejecting me, right? Lois: Yes. Brian: I'm just making sure. (He leaves but comes back again) Brian: Say we were both drunk and we knew we wouldn't remember... Lois: Well, I'd have to be really, really... (realizes Brian's trap) No!

    • Lois: Stewie, did you unhook mommy's bra?

    • This was the first episode to air on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

    • The intro in which Stewie kills Mr Rogers was removed from the original airing. It was restored for the Cartoon Network viewings.

    • Peter's line when Brian pees in the supermarket "Where do you think you are, K-Mart?" was changed to "Where do you think you are, Payless?" on FOX. CN airs this episode with the Payless line.

    Trivia (2)

    • If Stewie is able to tell when he has too pee and control it, he is very likely ready to be potty trained.

    • The candy bar that Peter wants is called Middlefingers.
