    • Klaus is seen wearing a Family Guy shirt, hat and lunchbox.

    • Return of the Bling
      The title of this episode is a parody/reference to the J.R.R. Tolkien story/movie The Return of the King. Also referenced in this episode from the book/film are the characters of Legolas, Aragorn, and Gandalf. Roger also freaks out and starts acting like Gollum, wanting his "Precious," and trying to cast the medal/ring in the fire to destroy it. Finally, Roger bites off Stan's finger just like Gollum bit off Frodo's finger.
