When Stewie sneaks into Peter and Lois's room to steal Lois's breast milk, the time shown on the clock is 4:20, a reference to 420, a number associated with cannabis culture.
The Wheel of Fortune scene is almost completely factually accurate down to the shopping, the bonus round with only five consonants and a vowel, the ceramic dalmatian which was frequently offered as a prize, the $25,000 sign, and a near-perfect rendition of the 1980s "Changing Keys" theme song.
During the bonus round of Wheel of Fortune, Peter asks for the letter Z, the number 4, the letter Q three times, and concludes with asking for the Batman symbol. After Peter answers the bonus round's question in one try, Peter asks to buy "the fat guy in the circle," which is himself.
This episode's Jeopardy! scene includes one of the few times that Mayor West's apparent delusions were proven correct. A year after the episode's airing, a Jeopardy contestant actually did write down “Kebert Xela” after he couldn't answer a question.
The one free week of maid's service Peter wins had a $250 sign on it.

On the censored version of this episode, Cleveland's use of the word "erection" is bleeped out.
On the uncensored version when Peter decides to fake Quagmire's death, he adds "This will be better than that soda I invented," then goes to a cutaway of Peter pitching Crystal Pepsi and stating that it's better than regular Pepsi, in case someone comes at the drinker with a knife and the drinker can’t see past the regular Pepsi. According to DVD commentary, this scene was rejected because of a Standards and Practices rule where a TV show couldn’t favor a product that’s not a show sponsor.
