  • Quotes

    • Peter: That's my son out there. I taught him how to wipe.
      Jake: Why won't you teach me how to wipe, dad?
      Tom Tucker: Because you don't have a bottom, son.
      Jake: Aw!

    • Brian: "The Diary of Nate Griffin." May 7th, 1836. I was brushing down Lucy, the new colt, when she let out a fart right near my face. So I took her head and stuck it by my butt and blew a huge fart right back at her.
      Peter: Hehehehehehe!
      Brian: Oh, uh, that laugh's in here, too, see? "Hehehehehehehe..."

    • Peter: Hey, Chris, what are you doing?
      Chris: Just layin' back in the cot, peepin' at this here homie. Yo, pops, let me have some cheddar. Some player hater be throwin' salt in my game and grillin' me over my gear and I needs to be mackin' style.
      Peter: Well, uh... the important thing is you tried, son.

    • Peter: It doesn't matter if you're black or white. (money is falling all around) The only color that really matters is green.

    • (Quagmire finds a cheerleader tied up in a bathroom stall)
      Quagmire: Dear Diary, Jackpot!

    • Chris: What's a library, dad?
      Peter: Oh, it's just a place where homeless people come to shave and go BM.

    • Peter: I got no idea how to be black ... y'know, except for not smiling when I get my picture taken.

    • (Peter is watcing "Dennis Miller Live")
      Dennis Miller: I don't wanna go on a rant here, but America's foreign policy makes about as much sense as Beowolf having sex with Robert Fulton at the first Battle of Antietam. I mean when a neo-conservative defenstrates it's like Raskolnikov filibuster deoxymonohydroxinate.
      Peter: What the hell does rant mean?

  • Notes

    • At the end of the episode, during the credits the theme song is sung as a rap.

    • In the credits, Peter is the only one singing the Family Guy Theme in rap and also you can hear some of the black people are doing the rap music.

  • Allusions

    • The Exorcist

      Peter: Our son's posessed!
      Peter freaking out when he thought Chris was speaking in tongues was a reference to the horror movie "The Exorcist". Peter even throws holy water on Chris while chanting "The power of Christ compels you."

    • George McGovern

      Peter's entire "I was there" speech is coming out of a George McGovern speech from the 1972 presidential campaign. This speech was McGovern's attempt to grab the black vote, especially since one of the candidates he was going against was a black woman named Shirley Chisholm. McGovern, over the course of his speech, continually told the people "I was there."

    • OJ Simpson

      Stewie: I'm telling you juice she's screwing around behind your back...

      Stewie is talking to O.J. Simpson in a bar he then turns to get another drink and O.J. leaves making a reference to the night his wife was killed

    • The Facts of Life

      Peter: I was there when Tootie got those painful braces!
      Peter is talking about "The Facts of Life" and the fact that Tootie (who is black) got braces somewhere throughout the seasons.

    • Dennis Miller

      Dennis Miller: I don't wanna go on a RANT here...

      This is making fun of Dennis Miller's comedic style in which he often uses extremely obscure historical and literal references that often leave the audience confused (which is why he was kicked off of Monday Night Football). He often opens up with with "I don't wanna go on a rant here.."

    • American Beauty

      Peter and Cyndi: none
      When Peter imagines blonde cheerleader (Cyndi) dancing alone to the sexy music as she opens her shirt, it parodies the scene between Kevin Spacey and Mena Suvari in "American Beauty". However, rose petals rise out of the shirt in "American Beauty" whereas in Family Guy they're turkey legs.

    • Pee-Wee's Playhouse

      Lois: Oh my God, you turned our living room into Pee Wee's Playhouse?
      Pee Wee's Playhouse, centred around the antics of loveable man-child Pee-Wee Herman (Played by Paul Reubens), was a popular and fairly long-running children's show that descended from Pee Wee's Big Adventure. In fairness, the artists did a great job reconstructing Pee Wee's house.
