  • Trivia

    • This episode has the production code 4AJN14 showing on the side of the drone along with the letters "AD" for American Dad on the wing.

    • The airport attendant that shoots Stan with a Taser gun says, "I don't think you don't understand." That is a double negative indicating that he, in fact, thinks Stan understands him perfectly.

    • Klaus is not in this episode.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The episode title, "Home Adrone", is an allusion to the movie Home Alone, in which a boy's parents leave him alone in the house for the weekend.

    • Raiders of the Lost Ark
      Stan falls of the front of the float and appears at the back like Indy does with the Nazi truck.

    • Barry: (staring at the drone out the window) They've found us! We're getting off the island!

      This is a take on the TV series Lost, where the characters are constantly saying that very phrase.

    • Flightplan
      The part of this episode with Francine, Hayley and Roger on the plane is a spoof of the movie Flightplan, starring Jodie Foster. In the movie Foster's character Kyle Pratt loses her daughter while on the plane, just like Roger. No one on the plane actually notices the daughter ever on board, and a sky marshal (just like in this episode) tries to help Pratt find her.

    • Revenge Of The Nerds
      The scene where Toshi chases his paper airplane is taken from the 1984 movie Revenge Of The Nerds along with the Japanese version of the song Bicycle Built For Two.
