Emily Jane Brontë (July 30, 1818 — December 19, 1848) was an English novelist and poetess, now best remembered for her only novel, Wuthering Heights. Emily was the second eldest of the three surviving Brontë sisters, between Charlotte Brontë and Anne Brontë.

A fan compare's Peter's writing of an erotic novel to Emily Brontë during a signing at Quahog Books in "Peterotica".

Stewie Griffin uses her sister, Anne, as an example of an eclipsed sibling in "New Kidney in Town" when she is shown announcing to her sisters that her period had started.

In "Chris Cross", Peter tells of wiping boogers in Brontë novels to gross out lonely chicks. A cutaway shows a reader of Wuthering Heights finding one of Peter's time bombs.
