In an earlier episode from the season, "Jerome is the New Black", while Quagmire is ranting at Brian, he says how he has never seen him down at a soup kitchen. Surprisingly, this episode, after they find out the black hole was an April Fools Joke, Brian says he will be going down to the soup kitchen.
Tom Tucker and Diane Simmons said there were 5 seconds left then Peter came in and the family were talking. Tom and Diane then began to countdown from 10 seconds.
Stewie claims that "Ring Around the Rosie" is a song in reference to the Bubonic Plague. This is a widely held misconception.

When shown on FOX, after the first act a parody [adult swim] bumper appeared, noting how it was better to watch "Family Guy" on AS because they add jokes and footage FOX wouldn't air. When the episode premired on AS a week later, the same parody bumper aired followed by a new parody of a FOX commercial saying "You are watching FOX! No...not THAT FOX but this FOX. The FOX for people who watch FOX on Cartoon Network. On FOX!"
The scary German bedtime story Peter mentions in a cutaway actually exists. It is called "Die Geschichte vom Daumenlutscher" (German for "The Story of the Thumbsucker" written by Wilhelm Busch, who was infamous for his rather sadistic stories. In the real story though, the boys' thumbs are cut off by a tailor, not by his mother.

When Brian is looking at the picture of Rita from when she was younger, he comments on how there is a flag missing some stars (indicating that several states had not joined the union yet). However, if Rita is 50 years old (born 1959), any flag in that picture would most likely have all 50 stars since Hawaii became a state in 1960.
Instead of "Cover has been exposed. Must return to the motherland", the literal translation of what Adam West says in Russian is "They found out about me. Must return to the capital".
