    • Announcer: And now back to "Round Table" with Al Michaels, Harold Ramis, Ray Romano, and Kermit the Frog. Kermit: These Zoning Laws are infringing on the rights of... Harold Ramis: Uh, if I might interrupt for a minute, I'd like to point out... Al Michaels: You've had your time, let someone else speak. Harold Ramis: I haven't said a word, it was that guy (points to Ray Romano). Ray Romano: Don't look at me! I can't get a word in edgewise. Kermit the Frog: Well then who the hell's been talking this whole time (they all begin to argue)?

    • Jake Tucker: What's your problem? Peter: Papa Tom's being a jerk. Jake Tucker: At least he talks to you. He hasn't paid attention to me in weeks! Peter: Well, all in all, I think you should be grateful. I heard the Kennedys had a kid like you once, and they had it put to sleep.

    • Peter: (to Tom Tucker, about Thelma) I can't believe this! You were messing around in what was basically my first apartment!

    • Thelma: I don't see what the problem is, Tom is a wonderful man. Tom Tucker: I don't see the problem either, but let's go to Ollie Williams for the In-Depth Anylasis. Ollie? Ollie Williams: Lady's old! Tom Tucker: Thanks Ollie, back to you, Peter.

    • (Off screen, a girl catches a Hot Dog in her mouth) Girl: That one felt like my Dad! Jingle: Incest in the morning! Deep-Voiced Announcer: Suppressed Memories!

    • Stewie: Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger. Doh! The commercial Brian says Stewie "sold out" in is a parody of the Butterfinger commercials of the early nineties, which featured characters from The Simpsons.

    • The Ring Peter says that instead of going to the air show he would have rather watched some tape from a movie called The Ring. The Ring is an actual horror movie in which if you watch a certain haunted tape you would die in 7 days.

    • WQHG Radio WQHG was acutally a radio station (106.3 FM) in Huntingdon, Pa. However the station no longer uses the call letters WQHG.

    • Kramer vs. Kramer The scene in the kitchen where Peter is eating the ice cream against Tom's wishes and then gets spanked for doing so is straight out of Kramer vs. Kramer, starring Dustin Hoffman.

    • Azaria Chamberlain disappearance The radio talk show developed by Brian and Stewie is called "Dingo and the Baby," referencing the disappearance of 2-month-old baby Azaria Chamberlain at Northern Territory, Australia. This occured in 1980 and her mother, Lindy Chamberlain claimed that a dingo took her.
