Chris is able to understand and communicate with Stewie when he questions Stewie repeating his Endor joke.
With the exception of the Indiana Jones chant, Stewie recites the blessings over the Pesach (Passover) candles accurately. The blessing is "Barukh atah Adonai, Eloheinu, melekh ha'olam, asher kidishanu b'mitz'votav v'tzivanu l'had'lik neir shel yom tov." This translates as "Blessed are you, Lord, our God, sovereign of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to light the candles of the holiday."
Alex Borstein, the voice of Lois, is Jewish. Many other members of the cast and crew are Jewish as well.
Francis Griffin makes his eighth appearance.
Peter relapses into smoking cigarettes in this episode. As of "I Take Thee Quagmire", he hadn't smoked in many years.
Quagmire is surprised that he is not the one getting the spin-off. However, Quagmire was the first person Cleveland told about the spin-off in "Baby Not On Board".
