  • The title references the film Spies Like Us, which also starred guest stars Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd.
  • During the scene in which Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Brian, and Stewie are brought before Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, Putin takes out a hanger for his jacket amongst other things. This is a reference to a scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark where Toht takes out his jacket hanger.
  • The tracking device used to find Adam West is similar looking to the PKE Meter from Ghostbusters.
  • The plot of Brian, Stewie, et al searching for long forgotten Russian sleeper cells that can be 'activated' via a secret message is similar to Charles Bronson's 1977 film Telefon, which had the same plot device.
  • Vladimir Putin's description of mercenaries invading the Czech Republic is of the film Stripes starring Bill Murray and Harold Ramis.
  • The set of Stewie dolls popping one out of another is a reference to the Russian Matryoshka Dolls , also known as Russian nesting dolls or babushka dolls
  • When Peter was doing his John Wayne bit he mentions John Wayne Gacy. Gacy was a real life serial killer whom raped and killed an estimated 32 teenage boys. He was also known to dress as a clown for parties.
  • Quagmire's first suggestion for an improv troupe name "Improvda: The truth is ad-libbed" is a play on the Russian word for "truth," "Pravda." It also references a communist newspaper of the same name and so the troupe name comments on communist governments' propensity to twist or subvert the truth via the media.
