  • Season 4 Episode 29: Bango Was His Name Oh (2)

  • When Peter and Lois are talking to the kids about dating, Lois's shirt buttons disappear for one scene and then reappear in the next.

  • When Stewie stole the Winnebago, he put on a John Deere trucker cap.

  • When Quagmire is handcuffed to the bed, one headshot shows him with the same haircut he had during Peter's flashbacks in "Death Lives"

  • Season 4 Episode 28: Stewie B. Goode (1)

  • Brian Drives a Toyota Prius. When Stewie is drunk and drives it through the wall, you hear the engine. The Toyota Prius doesn't use the gas engine until it's going 15mph, and judging by the relative distance of where Brian parked to were Stewie broke the wall was too small for the car to have gone anywhere near 15mph. Also the car had no damage and the airbags didn't deploy.

  • At the beginning, Stewie is overreacting because he can't swim, but in the episode "15 Minutes of Shame," Stewie is swimming in the lobster tank.

  • Season 4 Episode 27: The Griffin Family History

  • When Peter tells the story of Black-Eye Griffen, he's wearing a scuba diver costume, then after the story, he's in his pajamas.

  • If you look closely, you'll see that when Nate and his family are escaping, The horse carrying their wagon changes color when it gets a close-up.

  • When the family is trapped in the safety room, the sprinklers come on and they are close to drowning. That should not have been the case because there was a vent where Meg climbed through and the water would've drained through there.

  • In this episode Nate Griffin has the same voice as Peter's but he had deeper voice in "Peter Griffin: Husband, Father...Brother?"

  • It is revealed that Nate Griffin's real name is Richard Bachman.

    Richard Bachman is a pen-name horror writer Stephen King used to publish several books under.

  • This episode proves that Peter and Lois are related. Carter's ancestor (depicted as Lois in the flashback) had slept with Nate Griffin eventually making the present day Carter who then had Lois. Nate Griffin had also slept with another woman (whom he had mentioned in "Peter Griffin: Husband, Father...Brother?") eventually making Peter. This results in Peter and Lois being related by having Nate Griffin as their ancestor.

  • It is revealed that not only did Peter never like "The Godfather", but also he could never get through it. Coincidently he didn't recognize the 'references' to the movie in the episode "There's Something About Paulie".

  • Season 4 Episode 26: Petergeist

  • In the episode, Lois and Stewie come out of the TV in goo, but in the real movie "Poltergiest" when Carol Ann and her Mom come out they are covered in blood.

  • When Lois and Stewie escape the spirit world, via Meg, they were covered in a pinkish kind of goo. However, when they ran out of the house and into the car, the goo was gone.

  • When Lois goes in looking for Stewie, Peter ties a rope around her so they don't lose her, but when she finds Stewie and they exit out of Meg's ass, Lois has no rope around her.

  • Several bits of Jerry Goldsmith's original score for "Poltergeist" are used in this episode and match up to where the piece was used in the original film, i.e., when Stewie gets out of his crib to go to the TV and the whispering scene between Lois and the medium. The music in the closing credits of this episode is an obvious parody of Goldsmith's "Carol Anne's Theme", a similar piece of music that runs over the closing credits of "Poltergeist".

  • The author of "A Guild to the Occult" is Beverly Cleary. Cleary is the same author of the Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph S. Mouse book series.

  • Season 4 Episode 25: You May Now Kiss The...Uh...

  • The title of the film that the priest shows Lois is "The Homosexual and You" with the note "Produced by Pat Robertson Industries"

  • The sign on the door reads "Society of Arch-Republican Students (S.A.R.S.)"

    A poke at the real SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome)

  • When Chris asks Brian when the last time he had sex was, he said three years before 1986. But in the episode called "Brian In Love" he says he is seven. That episode was aired 2000. That would mean he was born in 1993 so it would have been impossible for him to have sex in 1983. It was ten years before he was born.
