• The opening of the episode is a parody of the TV series Super Friends with Peter as Superman, Brian and Stewie as Batman and Robin respectively, Lois as Wonder Woman, Chris as Aquaman, and Meg as....Meg.
  • The shower scene is similar to a scene in The Kentucky Fried Movie.
  • During the scene in which the Griffin family goes to temple, Stewie states "look at all these short hairy men. God, I feel like I'm on the forest moon of Endor." This is yet another Star Wars reference, this one referring to the Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi. He repeats the reference in the following scene in the car in order to make sure everyone heard it.
  • Peter asks Francis to say, "Peter, you must go to the Dagobah system." This is a reference to The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Peter shooting at Lois, who is getting the mail in the yard, is a reference to the Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List, some very detailed aspects are used, like the way he puts his cigarette away.
  • After being interrupted by Meg during his candle prayer, Stewie removes Meg's heart in a reference to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom which was also referenced in "The Courtship of Stewie's Father".
  • Peter's "Parker Lewis phase" is a reference to the long-canceled FOX sitcom Parker Lewis Can't Lose.
