This is the first Family Guy episode to have the cast perform musical numbers, whether they be formal performances, as Lois did, or informal singing, as Stewie did.
After Peter complained about “shows running together” while he was under house arrest, a cutaway shows Homicide: Life on Sesame Street, a combination of Homicide: Life on the Street, a crime drama, and the children’s television show Sesame Street.
There is a similarity to the Touched by an Angel episode "Doodlebugs" when the bar burns down after the song, "You'll Never Know".
Stewie’s time travel device uses a flux capacitor, just like that of the DeLorean in Back to the Future.
When Peter is under house arrest and running around in his house, the computer monitoring Peter reflects the early video game, Pong.
Stewie's first tooth identifies the second as "Bicuspid". A bicuspid is an adult tooth, not a baby tooth.
