    Notes (5)

    • This episode was nominated for an Emmy for 'Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming One Hour or Less).

    • According to an interview with Seth MacFarlane on Planet Family Guy, one of the many DVD commentaries cut from the Volume 1 DVD was a commentary on Road to Rhode Island featuring Brian and Stewie. However, after the show was renewed, this commentary was featured on the "Family Guy: The Freakin' Sweet Collection" DVD.

    • This episode was cut after the events of September 11th 2001, to remove a scene involving Osama Bin Laden sneaking weapons aboard an aircraft by copying Stewie's use of singing show-tunes to distract baggage handlers when his weapon-filled suitcases go through the X-Ray machine. The scene is missing from both Region 1 and 2 DVD releases of the episode and from the version of the episode that airs on Cartoon Network, due to the fact that Fox opted to include the censored version of the episode when the network acquire the rights to the series. It is also shown in its unedited version on the DVD release "The Freakin' Sweet Collection".

    • A scene where Peter watches Dr. Rebecca take her bra off was cut, and has since been leaked on to the net. Apparently it was never meant to be made public (being cartoon pornography and all) and the crew made it as a joke.

    • In many interviews, Seth MacFarlane has cited this as his favorite episode.

    Trivia (4)

    • This episode tells us that Brian's birthplace is Austin, Texas.

    • Stewie left Rupert the Teddy Bear in the Palm Springs airport, but he's seen in several later episodes.

    • During the night at the Motel, five gun holes are clearly visible above Stewie and Brian's bed. In the morning when Stewie wakes up to answer the phone there are seven gun shot holes above the bed.

    • The sign in front of the motel reads Prostitutes: Ask About our Continental Breakfast.

    Allusions (5)

    • Stewie: Montgomery Clift who was in From Here to Eternity with Burt Lancaster who was in Atlantic City with Susan Sarandon who was in White Palace with Kevin Bacon. There.
      This is a reference to the now infamous Oracle of Bacon at Virginia website, also commonly known as the "Seven Degrees of Kevin Bacon." By entering the name of ANY actor or actress, the website can trace he or she back to Kevin Bacon, by relating said actor to less than seven other actors or actresses.

    • Planes, Trains & Automobiles Stewie: That's it Mr. Giraffe. Get all the marmalade. This scene, with Brian and Stewie "spooning," is a reference to the 1987 film, Planes, Trains & Automobiles. It features Steve Martin and John Candy in two very familiar roles of comedic opposites forced to travel with each other, using any means necessary to try and get home (Hence the title).

    • Road to Morocco Brian And Stewie: We're on the Road to Rhode Island... The title of the episode and the song is a parody of a song in the movie Road to Morocco with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. The tune of the song is identical.

    • The Brady Bunch Stewie: You remember that episode of the Brady Bunch where Bobby saved Greg's life and Greg became his slave?
      The Brady Bunch was a show that ran from 1969 to 1974. This quote is actually a goof as well. It was Peter whose life was saved.

    • Tommy Tutone Stewie: 8-6-7-5-3-0-9. That's it. No wait that's not it. Damn you Tommy Tutone! Tommy Tutone was the group that performed this 80s tune, "867-5309/Jenny."
