Stan Smith / Roger
The false code that Stan gives Roger (531-8008) reads "boobies" upside down on a calculator.
In this episode, there are many references about war movies. At the end of the episode, a scene from First Blood is the stage.
Not only is the ortolan a real bird, but the recipe Roger describes is also real. Yes, including the napkin part.
Roger is seen in 3-D computer graphic animation during his vision sequence in this episode.
Featured songs in this episode:
1. Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbits."
2. Credence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son."
3. Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" (also included in Oliver Stone's Platoon soundtrack).
Roger: Stan, I tried to order Barbara does Celine, but I need the pay-per-view code.
Stan: How much is it?
Roger: It's priceless, but to watch it it's four-ninety-nine.
Stan: I guess we can add another five bucks to your tab.
Roger: (laughs) Five dollars? For Barbara does Celine? (stops laughing) No, it's four hundred and ninety-nine dollars. Barbara comes expensive or she doesn't come at all.
Stan: Forget it! I wouldn't pay that much to see Barbara do Celine! Or would I? Maybe if I was in the room with them, peeking from behind the curtain and they didn't know I was there. How would it appear on my credit card bill?
Stan: See, Steve, the National Anthem is about war and you'll never be able to sing it until you've been to war!
Steve: Can you expand on that idea?
Stan: Certainly. Take the song "Love in an Elevator". The reason it's so good is because Steven Tyler actually lived in an elevator the summer he wrote it.
Steve: But the song's called "Love in an Elevator", not "Live in an Elevator".
Stan: Steve, he's a rock star living in a kick-ass elevator. You don't think he's getting laid? Oh, and it's summertime.
Stan: My NRA buddies rent out this golf course once a month. Since you can't go to a real war, a reenactment is the next best thing.
Steve: I always wanted to go to a Civil War reenactment.
Stan: It's not a Civil War reenactment. Those things are for historians and people who hate blacks.
When Steve begins to sing the National Anthem on stage, the only two flags everyone is standing and saluting are the POW/MIA flag and the VFW flag. The American flag is not present as it should be...
Roger's opening credits disguise: the Hula girl from the episode "Rough Trade"
In this episode, Roger plays a Vietcong soldier. In "42-Year-Old Virgin", Roger said he actually fought for the Vietcong during the war.
The Vietnam reenactment taking place on a golf course may be a reference to the motion picture Forrest Gump, where Vietnam war scenes were filmed at Ocean Creek golf club in Fripp Island, SC.
