Officer: "I'm officer Reeses. What happened?"
His name is incorrect. It should be "Reese", not "Reeses".
At the end when the Griffins watch the Brady Bunch, they show Cindy bragging about the poop she just took. In the scene she has only a top lip, but then they show all nine characters, she has both lips.
When Peter is talking to the kid in the bathtub, he tells him that the towels are on the roof. When he says this, look behind him on the wall. There are towels there.
When Stewie is in the car reading his book, the cover says East Of Eden and nothing else. When he closes the book and we can no longer see the cover, Brian says that there's a huge "Oprah's Book Club" sticker on it, although there wasn't one just seconds before.
Family Guy clips during the FCC Song are from:
I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar
Road To Rhode Island
The Story On Page One
Brian The Bachelor
From Method To Madness
Let's Go To The Hop
Mr. Griffin Goes To Washington
Congressman: Come to think of it, he's right. Have you ever looked closely at the Lincoln Memorial?
(cuts to Lincoln on a toilet, reading a newspaper)
Congressman: So the motion is passed. The janitor's new nickname will be "Sweepy".
Brian: East of Eden? So, you pretty much read whatever Oprah tells you to, huh?
Stewie: Hey, this book has been around for fifty years. It's a classic.
Brian: But you just bought it last week. And there's an Oprah sticker on it!
Stewie: Oh, is that what that is? I'll just peel that right off.
Brian: So, what are you gonna read next?
Stewie: Well, she hasn't told us yet... Damn!
Brian: (On the newly-censored television programs) Come to think of it, there was something weird about that episode of The Honeymooners I saw.
(Flashback to episode)
Ralph: One of these days, Alice, one of these days, (Dubbed voice) I'm gonna stimulate the economy by buying an American car!
(after Peter lays down red carpet, waking up Lois, they argue.)
Lois: (pinning Peter to the carpet) Are you gonna go to Meg's play or not?
Peter: (Crying) Yes!
Lois: You like eating red carpet, tough guy?
(cut to Quagmire who is outside, overhears argument)
Lois: Say you like eating red carpet!
Peter: I like eating red carpet!
Quagmire: (faints, twitches) Giggity.
Bin Laden: This is a message to all American infidels. Prepare to die in a sea of holy fire. You will be punished for your decadent ways on the first day of Radaman. You...(laughing) Wait, wait a minute. Did I just say? What did I say...Radaman? (stammering) Bla-bla-bla. Ra-ma-dan. Radaman...what is that? Yeah, maybe Dennis Radaman is gonna punish you with his crazy hair.
Peter: Oh, Lois, you are so full of (BEEP)! WHAT?! Now I can't say (BEEP) in my own (BEEP)ing house?! Great, Lois. Just (BEEP)in' great. You know, you're lucky you're good at (BEEP) my (BEEP) or I'd never put up with ya. You know what I'm talking about, when you (BEEP) lubed-up (BEEP) toothpaste in my (BEEP) while you (BEEP) on a cherry (BEEP)Episcopalian (BEEP) extension cord (BEEP) wetness (BEEP) with a parking ticket. That is the best!
Peter: Welcome to the Peter Griffin side boob hour. A wonderful look back on all the partial nudity network television used to offer. Look at that side boob. Check out this side boob. How 'bout that side boob? That turn you on? Well it shouldn't because that's my side boob. Goodnight everybody!
Peter: (Farts into a megaphone) Gentlemen, that was a fart.
Chris: Are we there yet?
Lois: No Chris honey, we're not.
Chris: Are we there yet?
Lois: No, Chris.
Chris: Are we there yet?
Lois: Yes, Chris, yes okay! We're there!
(Peter changes the channel to the Brady Bunch)
Cindy: Look what I did everybody, isn't it the biggest, most special poop ever?
Mr. Brady: Well I guess it's true what they say; the big things really do come in small packages.
(Peter steps out of his shower at home)
Peter: AAaack! What are you doing?
FCC Guy: Censoring real life.
FCC Guy 2: His chin looks like balls. You want me to censor those too?
Peter: You're on TV, so I came to you for advice.
Tom Tucker: Peter, I'm flattered that you came to me and we'll be back after these messages...and we're back. Peter, if you want to control content, you'll have to start your own TV station.
Tom Tucker: Bob Hope briefly came back to life today; only to die in a tragic motorcycle accident.
Peter: But Lois, Meg sucks! Everything she does is so freakin terrible and depressing!
Lois: (sees satellite equipment on the yard) Peter, what are you doing? What is all this stuff?
Chris: Dad's starting his own tv station, but I'm not supposed to tell mom, because she's just gonna bitch him out.
Brian: (punches Stewie who starts crying) Whoops, crying baby. Better take him out (walks out of the room with Stewie)
Lois: You were right Peter
Peter: No way! I finally get to do this!
(pulls on a rope which drops balloons and confetti and unrolls a banner that says Peter's Right)
Peter: I had that set up fifteen years ago. (looks around) Hey where's the clown?
Lois: We have to do something about the FCC. Pack your bags, Peter, we're going to Washington DC.
(skeleton with a clown nose and a rainbow afro wig falls from the ceiling)
Peter: Oh, there he is.
Quagmire: Hello, and welcome to another edition of Midnight Q. Tonight we're gonna enjoy some jazz from Charles Mingus. Norman Maylor's here to read an excerpt from his latest work. And we also have a girl from Omaha hiding a banana. We're gonna find out where. Giggity giggity. Giggity goo. Stick around.
The Fellas At The Freakin' FCC Song
Peter: They will clean up all your talking in a menace such as this
Brian: They will make you take a tinkle when you want to take a p*ss
Stewie: And they'll make you call fellatio a trouser-friendly kiss
Peter, Brian, & Stewie: It's the plain situation!
There's no negotiation!
Peter: With the fellas at the freakin FCC!
Brian: They're as stuffy as the stuffiest of the special interest groups…
Peter: Make a joke about your bowels and they order in the troops
Stewie: Any baby with a brain could tell them everybody poops!
Peter, Brian, & Stewie: Take a tip, take a lesson!
You'll never win by messin'
Peter: With the fellas at the freakin' FCC!
And if you find yourself with some you sexy thing
You're gonna have to do her with your ding-a-ling
'Cause you can't say penis!
So they sent this little warning they're prepared to do the worst
Brian: And they stuck it in your mailbox hoping you could be coerced
Stewie: I can think of quite another place they should have stuck it first!
Peter, Brian, & Stewie: They may just be neurotic
Or possibly psychotic
They're the fellas at the freakin FCC!
FCC Suit 1: Gentlemen, we got 20 calls about the David Hyde-Pierce incident. And as you know, one call equals a billion people, which means 20 billion people were offended by this. Needless to say, something must be done.
FCC Suit 2: Perhaps we should ask the chairman.
FCC Suit 1: Good idea. (to the chairman) Uh, sir, we're wondering what course of action you recommend regarding the Hyde-Pierce incident.
Cobra Commander (the chairman): You have to censor television, you fools!! Now, follow my orders!
TV Announcer: It's The D[bleep]Van D[bleep] Show! Starring D[bleep] Van D[bleep].
FCC:...like when Ozzy Osbourne stopped biting the heads off of bats.
Ozzy Osbourne:Before I start I'm gonna eat this whole sandwich. (starts eating sandwich) I'll finish it later!
The "special interest group" couplet of the FCC song was played as a part of a news story on 03/04/09 NPR "Morning Edition" program, in regards with President Obama appointing Julius Genachowski as the new head of FCC.
The tune to the "FCC Song" was used in a song sung by Brian and Stewie at the 2007 Emmy Awards.
The scene with Osama Bin Laden and the Naked Gun opening has been referred to by Seth MacFarlane as "The longest scene in Family Guy history".
An extended scene on the Volume 4 DVD includes a parody of the TV show Jackass. The show, entitled Douchebags, shows Cleveland daring Peter to poop off of a highway overpass.
Nominated for an Emmy
When Peter is shown taking care of the child in the bathtub he states that the soap is right beside the radio if you need it, thus an allusion to the famous "No-soap radio joke".
Trouser Malfunction: The David Hyde Pierce "trouser malfunction" in the episode lampoons Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" at the Superbowl.
Wile E. Coyote
Peter was a clerk at an ACME store where he sold weapons to the famous Looney Toons character Wile E. Coyote. When Wile E. tells Peter that "I bought a giant, life-sized slingshot from you, and it just slammed me into a mountain," it refers to the failed attempts for Wile E. to catch the Road Runner, where he always seems to crash or fall of a cliff, often with something heavy above him.
The scene when Peter and Jake Ryan are sitting on the table with the birthday cake, and the two of them almost kissing is a spoof of the ending scene of the movie Sixteen Candles. Jake Ryan was the love interest of Molly Ringwald's character in the movie.
At the end of the episode, the Griffins watch an episode of the Brady Bunch staring at a toilet bowl. This scene pokes fun at the fact that the FCC ordered the creators of The Brady Bunch to remove the toilet from the show, because it was seen as too risqué.
Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones
When Stewie uses the rubber chicken to engage Osama, who has a sword, the choreography of their fight closely resembles the lightsaber fight between Yoda and Count Dooku in Star Wars Episode II--Attack of the Clones.
An episode of Three's Company is shown edited, though really nothing risque is shown. This is possibly an oblique reference to an urban legend that John Ritter's genitals, owing to a pair of ill-fitting shorts, are briefly visible. The episode in question is "The Charming Stranger".
Janet Jackson's superbowl incident
The episode is based on the reaction from the 2004 super bowl halftime show where Janet Jackson had her breast shown for a moment on live national TV. There is even a brief clip of Peter doing the same thing.
In the scene where Peter says a joke to Lois about "Eggs Benedict Arnold" it is a reference to the famous historical figure Benedict Arnold , who was caught betraying America.
The opening scene in which Stewie unmasks himself, fights the terrorists and speeds off on his big wheel into various famous scenes from movies is from "The Naked Gun," including the music.
Allusions in the title scene include:
1. The Wizard of Oz
3. The Shining
4. the video game Doom
5. the Hoth battle from The Empire Strikes Back
6. The Sound of Music
7. The Simpsons: Stewie runs down Homer Simpson in the garage as Homer runs to the door, similar to how "The Simpsons" opens.
Stewie pops out of the toilet previously occupied by Peter and displays the book "Everybody Poops" during the FCC song. "Everybody Poops" is a childrens' book written by Taro Gomi.
The blue clad man who orders television censored and then rockets away is Cobra Commander, from G.I. Joe, who ironically once attempted to launch his own pirate TV network in the episode of that show entitled "The Wrong Stuff".
