    • Gina: Family Guy!

      One of Gina's names in the short name-calling moment refers to the campy, short-lived animated sitcom Family Guy about a fat, idiotic, Catholic man with a hardworking wife, a loser teenage daughter, a slow-witted son, an infant son who dreams of world domination and a dog with a drinking problem and high IQ.

      About a year after this episode aired, new episodes of Family Guy were produced and the series returned to the Fox Sunday line-up after the reruns met remarkable success on DVD and in reruns on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim. Since then, the two series have taken many good-natured potshots at each other, such as a "Treehouse of Horror" story featuring Homer making clones of himself - one of which being Peter Griffin, and a Family Guy episode in which Stewie runs Homer over in a parody of The Simpsons opening animation.
