Stewie claims that getting hurt while doing his vault will get him onto a box of Wheaties. This is a reference to Kerri Strug, who in 1996 helped the US Women’s Gymnastic Olympic team win gold. She injured her ankle on her first jump and then landed her second jump before collapsing in pain. This performance not only earned her a gold medal but also put her on the Wheaties box.
