    • Cleveland: ...but if Peter wants to put together a new A-Team, or overthrow a British Pub, or recreate all the whole damn Star Wars movies, I'm expected to jump on board no questions asked. Cleveland refers to the Family Guy episodes Brian Goes Back to College, One if by Clam, Two if by Sea, plus the three Star Wars episodes, Blue Harvest, Something, Something, Something, Dark Side, and It's a Trap.

    • Peter: Do it Brian, it's the only way I'm gonna catch that bird. Peter is seen with a large rocket strapped to his back trying to catch The Road Runner, much like Wile E. Coyote did in the Looney Tunes cartoons.

    • Robert: And Rerun's in, what, sixth grade? Rerun is a character from the 70's tv show What's Happening?.

    • Donna; Watch your mouth, Rollo! Rollo takes his character's name from a supporting part in the TV series Sanford and Son.

    • Cleveland: Oh, which way's the bar, Thing? The disembodied hand that directs Cleveland to the bar is a reference to the TV series The Addams Family, which was made into a movie in 1991.

    • Tim: I hope you packed your liberal shoes, what with their electric cars and their Regal Beagle and all, you know. The Regal Beagle was the hot spot in the 70's sitcom Three's Company.
