As the search for gold goes "North," life at home heads south as Hayley turns to body-piercing, Steve creates a robotic girlfriend and Roger files for sexual harassment.

    Overall, the episode was kinda boring, while Stan's plot was only good for the School House Rock reference, Roger's plot took the cake with the sexual harrassment thing

    What I liked: Roger trying to get sexually harassed so he can get a settlement, "If I died who would remember me?" "I would," "That's right, nobody." the song about Ollie North, even though it was tasteless, the "How was your dad's funeral? Did you cry?" line got a chuckle out of me.



    Overall it was good in jokes. The plot got kind of boring after a little while, I thought, but it was the jokes that made this episode one of my personal favorites, so because of all of this I think it is only fair to give this episode an A+ as my final grade.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Geologist: The rest of this pit will collapse any moment. We've got to get that man out of there or he'll be buried alive.
      Hanson: We fill that pit with foam, your man will float right to the top.
      Geologist: I don't think that will work.
      Hanson: Neither do I, but I've got a truck full of foam and six kids to feed. Come on. I need this.
      Steve: What if we just lower the rope?
      Hanson: A rope made of foam?
      Steve: Stop. Okay, just...stop.

    • Stan: If I had died in that crash today, who would remember me?
      Francine: I would.
      Stan: That's right. Nobody.

    • Francine: Stan, can you please talk to your daughter. Look at her!
      Stan: My God! Get that slut shrapnel out of your face this instant!
      Hayley: It's just a nose ring.
      Stan: It's a gateway piercing. Next thing you know, you'll have a bone for your lip like one of those rain forest people that Sting is always whining about.
      Francine: (to Hayley) Listen to your father. Sting's become a bit of a douche.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Casablanca
      When Stan says, "Here's lookin' to you, gold" he is making a parody of the infamous line from Casablanca "Here's lookin' to you, kid."

    • Spaceballs
      In Stan's vision of the future, Steve has created a robot similar to Dot Matrix from the Mel Brooks movie Spaceballs.

    • Ivan Drago
      During Stan's song about the Cold War, America is represented by Uncle Sam, and Russia is represented by Ivan Drago. Ivan Drago was the Russian boxer in Rocky IV who sparred with and killed Apollo Creed who's costume was an Uncle Sam outfit.

    • School-House Rock
      The song Stan sings to teach the kids about Oliver North is done in the style of the old School-House rock 'edutainment' cartoons. Roger's "Crap, that's the end." specifically parodies the "Interjections" installment.

    • Indiana Jones
      Stan reshooting his discovery of the gold: his outfit is an exact duplicate of Indiana Jones' standard costume.
