In the storyboard for the episode on the volume 5 DVD it is revealed that originally Stewie was to fall for one of Jillian's friends, so he makes a man suit. He enjoys it until he discovers she has a three year old, and she wants more children. The cutaway gags involving Uma Thurman in "Pulp Fiction" & two guys typing screenplays at Starbucks were supposed to be in this episode. However, when the episode was re-written in order to work Olivia into the plot, the two cutaways were then shown later in "Bill and Peter's Bogus Journey". Fouad was originally supposed to have a beard. The scene when Stewie sees Quagmire struggling with a woman, Quagmire was originally wearing an Egyptian Pharoh hat. There was originally going to be a scene with a trailer for a movie called "Kill Everything" directed by Michael Bay. The movie was a reference to the intense amounts of explosions and killings in Michael Bay movies as opposed to developed storylines.
