This marks the third appearance of James Woods and the first episode where Woods does not fall for a "Reese's Pieces" trap and gets "examined by top men" at the end.
The episode's ending takes place in November as Stewie reveals, meaning that the next episode, "April in Quahog", takes place five months later. However, time is irrelevant since months pass in various episodes, for example nine months in "Sibling Rivalry" and an unknown amount of time in "The Perfect Castaway", and Stewie has experienced multiple Christmases, but remains one year old.
While Peter mentions in "Back to the Woods" to Brian that they should setup the "Reese's Pieces" trap straight away at the next time Woods appears, Brian does not do so, presumably as the situation did not call for it.
