This is the first episode where we see Brian driving his own car. It appears to be a Toyota Prius.
Stewie reads the first "Garfield" book, but mentions that Garfield has to put up with Nermal, who wasn't introduced until the third book.

Stacy: Go to hell Tom.
Tom: Already there hon.
Tom Tucker: Coming up next: Handsome mustachioed man recaps news in pleasing baritone.
Meg: Brian! Chris picked his nose, and now he keeps touching me with finger!
Chris: What good is mining nose gold if I can't share it with the townspeople?
Lois: Hi, Boys.
Peter: I didn't have my hand down my pants!
Lois: Hmm...Good for you. I just bought you some new sheets at Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
Peter: Oh boy, I hope you stayed away from that "beyond" section.
(Scene of Peter pushing a shopping cart into a door labeled BEYOND.)
Peter: (through vortex) Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh-- Oh, here are the coffee mugs...
Tricia Takanawa: Diane, I'm standing outside the Park Barrington Hotel because they don't allow Asians inside.
Gepetto: Whoops, I dropped my glasses. (Bends down, butt facing Pinochio.) Oh, by the way Pinochio, there were some cookies missing from the jar. Uh, did you take them?
Pinochio: Yes papa, I did. I'm sorry.
Gepetto: Are you sure you did?
Pinochio: Yes, papa. I would never lie to you.
Gepetto: Are you sure? I mean, you could lie to me. And who knows? You may even get away with it.
(Peter slowly raises up a comic book into his line of sight while he is driving.)
Peter: (to himself) Hehehehehe.....Look at all those hamburgers. You can't eat all those hamburgers, you stupid fella (car veers off the road). Oh geez! (Peter swerves the car back on the road and then slowly raises up the comic book again). Uh! He's gonna do it! Oh he is SO ridiculous--you hear me, you ridiculous man? (Car crashes into tree.)
Stewie: If I choose to make stool in my pants right now, you're the only one here to change me. What do you think of that, hmm?
Brian: I'm not going to change you.
Brian: I said, I'm not going to change you.
Stewie: You can't be serious. Well, what if I make a fudgie? Well, I just won't. I just won't that's all. I just won't. Blast! I just did.
Stewie: If your teachers ask about your bruises, what do you tell them?
Chris: (crying) I got hit by a baseball!
(on top of Mount Rushmore)
Lois: Ooooh, Peter!
Washington: Hey. Hey, Jefferson. Check it out - Chick getting nailed on my head.
Jefferson: Sweet! Hey, Teddy, pass the word down to Frankenstein!
Lincoln: Oh, ha-ha.
Congressman: There is no just cause for an invasion of Iraq.
Peter: Well that may be, but what we're all forgetting is anyone that doesn't want to go to war is gay.
Congressman: I want to go to war.
Congressman 2: I want to go to war.
All of Congress: I want to go to war.
Dick Cheney: I was the first one who wanted to go to war.

Ollie: HE GON' GET IT!
Tom Tucker: Thanks Ollie!
Chris: (to Brian) I don't have to listen to you! You're a dog! You don't have a soul!

Peter: Lois, I just got an idea! Much better than that time I experimented with gene splicing!
(cut to that time, where Peter is a Moose man)
Peter: Uh, Lois, quick question, Do we have any Tylenol?
Peter: Everybody, I got bad news - we've been cancelled.
Lois: Oh, no. Peter, how can they do that?
Peter: Well, unfortunately, Lois, there's just no more room on the schedule. We just gotta accept the fact that Fox has to make room for terrific shows like:
That 80's Show
Andy Richter Controls The Universe
Wanda At Large
The Lone Gunmen
A Minute With Stan Hooper
Cedric The Entertainer
and Greg The Bunny.
Lois: Is there no hope?
Peter: Well, I suppose if ALL those shows go down the tubes we might have a shot.
Lois: Honey, what do you say we christen these new sheets, huh?
Peter: Why Lois Griffin, You naughty girl.
Lois: Hahaha, That's me.
Peter: You dirty hustler...you filthy stinky prostitute.
Lois: Okay I get it.
Peter: You foul venereal disease carrying street walking whore.
Lois: That's enough.
Meg: I wanna watch George Lopez!
Chris: That show only perpetuates the stereotype that George Lopez is funny.
Peter: Christians don't believe in gravity.
Announcer: Let he who is without sin kick the first ass.
Lois: Peter, there's a hooker on the bed!
Peter: Stay perfectly still, Lois, their sight is based on movement.
Hooker: Where'd ya go?
One of the shows Peter lists is The Tick, a live action adaption of the comic book and cartoon series starring Patrick Warburton, who voices Family Guy regular Joe Swanson.
Also, Seth Green, the voice of Chris Griffin, was the star of Greg The Bunny. Another show Peter listed.
This episode was nominated for an award at this years Emmy's for most outstanding animated program (under 1 hour ).
Though the character is not named for copyright reasons, the member of G.I. Joe that shows up in the bathroom is Flint. Bill Ratner, who voiced the character on the original cartoon series, was brought back to spoof the PSA's at the end of each episode.
Don LaFontaine, who did the trailer narration for Passion Of The Christ 2, is one of the more readily recognized voices who does film trailers. Along with Wally Wingert, Family Guy series regular, he does some of Disney's trailer voice overs.
Due to strong DVD sales, the show was brought back for a fourth season.
First episode to air in the show's new Sunday 9pm ET timeslot.
A DVD screener version intended for critics was leaked onto the internet a week before it went on the air.
Brian Griffin reads a book based on this movie, and recites Chevy Chase's character's line: "Nanananana." It was a choice between reading that and Jim Davis' 1978 comic book: "Garfield At Large"
The Honeymooners is parodied in a flashback, as Jackie Gleason is shown finally punching his wife Alice after she mocks him for not fulfilling his physical threats.
Peter: I'm Mel Gibson ... I play Peter Griffin, a heroic warrior who defied the English to free England from the English.
Peter is referring to Mel Gibson's role of William Wallace in Braveheart.
The character in the comic book that Peter was reading while driving resembles Jughead, a character of Archie Comics fame.
GI Joe: And knowing is half the battle.
At the end of most episode's of the cartoon GI Joe a segment would feature educational promos or public service announcements. They would always end with the phrase "And knowing is half the battle"
Dude Where's My Country?
Dude Where's My Country was a novel written by Michael Moore in the months leading up to the September 11th attacks. Once the attacks had taken place the book's publication was pushed back, edited, and ultimately cancelled due to its harsh criticism of George W. Bush. The book was ultimately released however and went on to make lots and lots of money.
Chris: That show only perpetuates the stereotype that George Lopez is funny.
A sharp Jab at the show George Lopez that aired on ABC.
The Blues Brothers
The scene where Peter and Lois try to lose their pursuers in the mall is a direct take off from the Blues Brothers movie.
Peter: Their vision is based on movement
A reference to the Jurassic Park movies, where the only way not to be seen by a T-Rex is to stay completely still.
North by North Quahog
The title seems to be an obvious reference to the 1959 Hitchcock Thriller "North By Northwest." The final scenes including the plane attack and the gunfight on Mt. Rushmore are nearly identical to what happened in the famous Alfred Hitchcock movie North By Northwest. The music was also similar to that in the actual movie. Also the whole confrontation right before the Rushmore scene is also in North by Northwest. And the whole 'switcheroo'
Stewie: Hey look at that Yosemite Sam mud flap, you better stay back Brian!
Yosemite Sam is a Looney Tunes cartoon character (thus marking this as one of two Looney Tunes references in this episode). The Yosemite Sam mud flaps (featuring Yosemite Sam and the slogan "Back Off") are also a popular car accessory for sale at nearly all auto accessory parts stores.
While Stewie is spanking Chris, he says, "If your teachers ask about your bruises, what do you tell them?" To which Chris replies, "I got hit by a baseball." Then, we the camera pans out and we see Brian leaning against the trunk, smoking a cigarette, and then looking at his watch. Ray Liotta who plays Henry in Goodfellas does the exact same thing while Joe Pesci's and Robert De Niro's characters are beating somebody up.
