In the original script, Hayley's date with Mahmood was supposed to take place in a McDonalds, but Fox asked the writers to change it to Burger King for advertisement reasons.

Roger: Oh, Ernest and Julio Gallo, you make a glorious wine, and a handsome couple!
Guard: (Singing) Here in Saudi Arabia! (Gets shot)
Saudi Police Officer: No singing!
Hayley: (Running) I appreciate your culture!
Saudi Police Officer: (Chasing Hayley) Silence, whore!
Stan: Ladies, ladies. You're both Mrs. Smith.
Francine: Stan, what on earth?
Stan: Surprise! I got us a second wife. You know, to help with cooking and cleaning. Her name's impossible to pronounce, so I just call her "Thundercat."
Hayley: Steve, come on! I'm supposed to meet the neighbor's son in 20 minutes!
Steve: You know the rule. Say it, and I'll escort you to the bazaar.
Hayley: (Sighs) "You're the manliest man in the history of manly men."
Hayley: "And when you're in your late 30s, you may have a chance at convincing a long-time female friend to have awkward pity-sex with you once."

Roger: I need a drink. Where's the booze?
Hayley: There is no booze. Saudi Arabia is a dry country.
Roger: Seriously, where's the booze?
Francine: Oh, good, a Shwarma King. I'm starving. Pull over, Stan.
Stan: Are you insane? We're not stopping for their food. Next, you'll want to use their bathrooms, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna use their sandpapery toilet scrolls on my proud American button.
Steve: How come all the women are dressed like ninjas?
Hayley: They're wearing abayas. Saudi women aren't objectified like women in Western cultures. The beauty myth doesn't exist here.
Stan: It doesn't exist in Idaho, either. Why couldn't we go there? Talk about a bunch of dogs.
Stan: Damn it. If Francine had been here, she could have started the wave of laughter. Laughter is infectious, like smallpox or gay. She wants to be equal partners, well, I say, no way.

Jeff: (Eating) Still?
Stan: Francine, good news. I'm in charge of planning Bullock's party, which means you're in charge of planning Bullock's party.

Hayley: You know the rule.
Steve: You're the most evironmentally-conscious, self-actualized feminist in the world...
Steve: And I'm a douche bag.
Stan: Roger, have you seen Francine?
Roger: (Drunk) Not since she came back from the store with this. Look at its magnificent size. I'm completely off my ass, and I'm barely down to the label.
Saudi Police Officer: (Holding knife to Francine's throat) This belong to you?
Stan: Thanks, just, uh... just put her anywhere.
Roger: Does this furniture polish have alcohol in it? (Drinks it) Mmmmmm... tastes like I might die.

Channel 7 (AU) airdate: March 30, 2006.
BBC TWO (UK) airdate: December 22, 2005.
On its original showing, there was both a scene in the show set in a Burger King restaurant, as well as a legitimite commercial for BK "narrated" by Stan for a promotion involving viewers to pick their favorite Fox Sunday animated show. During the ad, Stan "subliminally" tells us to vote for "American Dad!"

There was a viewer discretion advisory before the beginning of this episode.

[adult swim] airdate: November 17, 2005.
Stan: Quick cover your mouths, that's how they enter your body and lay their eggs.
This is a reference to the Facehuggers in the Alien movies, of how they implant an embyro into their victims.
Stan: Just Google "Martin Lawrence" plus "arrested" plus "jogging." Stan is referring to the incident with Martin Lawrence from 1999 where he went into a three-day coma after collapsing from heat exhaustion while jogging in 100-degree heat with several layers of heavy clothing. He recovered in the hospital from near death and running a body temperature of a seemingly impossible 107 �F (41.7 �C), his breathing assisted by a respirator.
Shwarma King: Name
The "Shwarma King" restaurant is a play on the fast food franchises Burger King and Taco King.
The woman which Stan calls her Thundercat is a name of the 80's series called ThunderCats.
Episode Title: Stan of Arabia (1)
This is a take off of the famous movie Lawrence of Arabia.
Mahmood: The Hayley-meister sitting on the toilet.
This is very similar to what Rob Schneider's character (known as the "makin' copies" guy) from an SNL skit would say. Saturday Night Live.
Song: Rock the Casbah
The song playing when Steve was driving his car was "Rock the Casbah" by The Clash. The video for this song had to do with a man from Saudi Arabia, the country Stan and his family were re-located to.
Star Wars: Jawas
When Steve, Roger, and Hayley visit the Bazaar, the first tent they pass has Jawas from Star Wars selling droids to an Arab man. They even have the bulky R1 droid in the background.
Stan: One of these days, Francine. One of these days. (Shoots gun in the air) Right in the kisser.
This line is referring to the famous quote from The Honeymooners, where Ralph would say to Alice: "One of these days, Alice. One of these days. Pow! Right in the kisser!"
Bullock: I like big Asian butts and I cannot lie.
This is a reference to the early '90s rap/pop song, "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot.
The shirt Mahmood was wearing had Urkel's face on it. Urkel is famous for his role in the '90s ABC sitcom, Family Matters.
