Continuity Goof: In the office sequence, where Stan learns that the CIA can take any assets it needs, there's a large computer screen to Stan's left; after the quick clip of Bullock, the scene at the office continues without the large screen.
Roger's scheme in this episode where he accuses the Lipton company of having a finger in the can of soup is a reference to a real life case in California. A woman who ate at a Wendy's fast food restaurant finds a finger inside her chili and sues the company. It later turns out that the finger was a fake and was actually planted by the woman as a plot to extort money from the company.
Running Gag: Stan constantly scaring Johnny by suddenly pointing his gun at him, causing him to scream.
Langley Falls Post front page headline: "Mexican President Creates Taco Supreme Court."
Mr. Hallworthy: (over the receiver) Nurse, I'm ready for my sponge bath now.
Stan: Who said that?
Francine: Santa? Is that you?
Stan: I hope ponies are illegal!
Roger: Is this heaven?
Señor Toad Executive: No, it's Mexico.
Roger: That makes sense 'cause it smells like Mexico.
Stan: I am a rock. I am an island. I am incontinent! Get it? It sounds like "continent."
Stan: My God, everybody hates me. I feel like a Jew outside of New York or Los Angeles.
Roger: (making a bogus telephone complaint) I was making my grandchildren some of your French Onion soup, I poured the contents of the can into a saucepan and out plops a human finger. Now the stress of this incident has given me walking nightmares, street terrors, diabetes and hysterical pregnancy. Now I am going to require a substantial cash settlement somewhere in the amount of whatever one of those ionic breeze machines costs. My address is, huh... do I have the finger? Uhh... (hangs up) Damn! The Lipton woman outfoxed me again.
Stan: Bam! (Pulls out his gun; points it at Johnny)
Stan: Dead kid in the cornfield! Crows pecking out your eyes! Mama can't find you for weeks!
Johnny: You're an ass, Mr. Smith.
Stan: And you're funny lookin'.
Francine: Hey, why don't we throw a party of our own? You know, to show them that they're wrong about you.
Stan: That's a brilliant idea. We should form a think tank, what with your ability to come up with ideas and and my ability to assess their worth.
Francine: We should call it "Thoughts Unlimited."
Stan: That's terrible.
Stan: (To Francine) Oh, my God! Oh, my God! I'm not beloved! I'm hated! I'm surrounded by people who hate me! It's our wedding all over again, except I'm you!
