When the cast of How I Met Your Mother appears before King Stewart, they perform a short scene referencing the Bro Code. However, the section of the Bro Code they mention has nothing to do with the scene (a full-length book version of the Bro Code had been published about 7 months before this episode aired). Barney cites Article 15-b and describes it as "the heart of the Bro Code"; this sub-article doesn't exist, however, as Article 15 is "A bro never dances with his hands above his head."
The closest article relating to what they're talking about in the scene would be Article 101: "If a Bro asks another Bro to keep a secret, he shall take that secret to his grave. This is what makes them Bros, not chicks"

This episode reveals that Kevin Swanson, Joe's son, died in Iraq, explaining his sudden disappearance from the show (also, in the DVD commentary for Peter's Two Dads, the creator Seth MacFarlane said that he was a very boring character).

Peter suggested that he could distract Lois with a minotaur with Sean Connery's head. Since a minotaur is a creature with a man's body and a bull's head, then a minotaur with Sean Connery's head would be...well....Sean Connery.
Evidently, the Griffins had a fourth child, Peter Griffin Junior, who died from shaken baby syndrome.
