Chris finally suspects that Herbert may be a pedophile.
Was watching rerun of "Three's Company." Laughed so hard, pooped in pants. Went to find all-night cleaners or pants store.
Announcer: We now return to Damn Nature, You Scary on BET.
(cut to the TV screen, where a cheetah is running)
Narrator: Damn, look at that son-of-a-bitch go! He haulin' ass! If that thing come by my house, I kill it.
(the cheetah sees a meerkat, catches it, and eats it)
Narrator: That little rat-looking thing just got ate! DAMN NATURE, YOU SCARY!
(Peter calls Quagamire)
Peter: Look Quagamire were only gonna be in Martha's Vinyard for a couple days can't you just watch the kids
(pause where Quagamire refuses)
Peter: Aww man your more of a let down then fruit stripe gum.
(flash back where peter puts a piece of fruit stripe gum in his mouth)
(1 second later)
Peter: (very drunk) Did I miss Byron's reward?
Lois: "Brian's award". And yes, you did!
Peter: Brian, you've been a good son, and I'm sorry you're so sick.
Meg: No offense, Mr. Herbert, but I'm a seventeen year old girl, and I don't need you here.
Herbert: Well, no offense to you Meg, but you're a seventeen year old girl, and I don't need you here.
Brian: Lois, I really like to talk about this.(Brian starts scratching the door)
Lois: No! Stop scratching the door!
Peter: I am so glad Brian brought us out here, Lois. He's a real pal, you know that?
Lois: Well, it's actually Brian I need to talk to you about.
Peter: Boy, he's a hell of a guy, isn't he? He's the one guy I know I can trust.
Lois: Brian tried to have sex with me.
Peter: Was he bigger than me?
Peter: You can't even hang on to a girlfriend for more than a couple of months.
Brian: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Peter: Oh... you're a friggin' train wreck with that crap, Brian. You couldn't even get Jillian to take you back, and she was dumber than Lou Ferrigno.
Stewie: So, what happened sport? Come on, talk to your pal Stewie.
Brian: Alright, but only because I've gotta tell somebody. I pretty much just threw myself at Lois.
Stewie: So, you finally did it huh? Well look Brian, as your friend, I should tell you that that vagina is ground zero man. I mean I just wrecked that thing on the way out, and just to be a jerk, I carved "Brooks was here" in the wall. Did you see that? Did you see "Brooks was here."
Brian: We didn't have sex.
Stewie: Of course with Chris going before me I pretty much just walked outta there. Didn't even have to stoop over. There was even room to twirl a cane as I strolled.
Brian: You're exaggerating.
Stewie: Only a little bit! That's the messed up thing.
Brian: Oh my God, I attacked Lois! What the hell was I thinking? I'm a rapist. I-I'm no better than Kobe Bryant, or Mike Tyson, or Reagan.
Lois: (after reading Peter's note) Well, heh, it looks like I am free. Hey, you know what might be fun? How bout we just order room service and watch a couple of bad movies?
Brian: Yeah, that does sound like fun. I'll go rent Vanilla Sky.
Lois: I said a bad movie, not an abortion.
Herbert: Alright children, your mammy and pappy asked me to look after ya for the next couple days. So I wanna lay down a few ground rules: no cussing, clean your plates, and only a half-hour of radio and then its off to bed.
Chris: Well that sucks.
Herbert: And don't you mouth off to me or I'm gonna slap you right in your penis
Lois: (after arriving at the resort) Brian, this is wonderful. I feel like one of the Kennedys. You know, the over privileged drunk ones, not the socially responsible dead ones.
Summer of '42
When Brian admits that most of his writing was ripped of from Summer of '42, he's referring to the 1971 movie that was based on Nantucket Island, off New England.
The 'The End' seen at the end of this episode was the standard ending for most Paramount Pictures movies of the 30s and 40s, and was also parodied in the 70s movies Airplane! and Top Secret!
When Herbert whistles to Chris, it may be a reference to the 1931 film M, in which Peter Lorre played a child murderer and pedophile who frequently whistled "Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg. Herbert's tune is different, of course, but the intent is still similar.
As Time Goes By
The song playing while Brian and Lois are strolling on the boardwalk is As Time Goes By, written by Herman Hupfield in 1931 and later immortalized in the movie Casablanca.
Peter And The Wolf
The story that Herbert reads to Chris and the tune he whistles are taken from Peter And The Wolf, a composition by Sergei Prokofiev told by a narrator and accompanied by an orchestra.
The artist on the boardwalk depicts Brian as Snoopy from the Peanuts comics. Also Herbert says, "Oh, rats!" in a Charlie Brown like voice when Meg bathes him instead of Chris.
Massachusetts Tourism Montage
The Massachusetts Tourism song is the actual one used to promote the state in mid-80s TV spots.
The roller coaster that Peter rides at the beginning of the Massachusetts Tourism Montage is patterned after Superman: Ride Of Steel at Six Flags New England in Agawam, MA, just outside of Springfield. Although the colors are completely different, the style of track and train design are spot on.
When Brian and Lois stop to get their portrait done, the artist shows them the finished drawing depicting Lois as Jane Jetson from the the 1960's animated hit, The Jetsons.
Stewie: And just to be a jerk, I carved "Brooks was here" in the wall.
This is a reference to the movie Shawshank Redemption, where James Whitmore's character left that final message before hanging himself.
Play it Again, Brian
The episode title is a take on the often misquoted line from Casablanca, "Play it again, Sam". The actual line given by Ingrid Bergman is, "Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By.'" The title is also a play on the 1972 Woody Allen film, Play It Again, Sam starring Allen and Diane Keaton.
