  • The title is a parody of the title of the film Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.
  • Circuit Shack is a portmanteau for electronics stores Circuit City and Radio Shack.
  • Stu is a 35-year-old virgin, that works at an electronic store, which is similar to Andy in the film The 40 Year-Old Virgin.
  • Stu and Stewie attempt to learn about sex by reading The Joy of Sex. The partners shown in the photographs illustrating this work were notoriously hirsute as the male wore a heavy dark beard, and she full pubic hair, hence Stewie's comment about the razor not having been invented until the eighties.
  • A reference to Ferris Bueller's Day Off climaxes in a sequence where Stewie Griffin races through his suburban neighborhood in a parody of Ferris’ dash to get home before his parents at the end of the film, using the same music and featuring a brief scene where he introduces himself to two sunbathing women. There is also a scene where Peter almost sees Stewie out of the corner of his eye as Stewie chases after the family car; there is an identical scene in Ferris Bueller.
  • Stu tells Stewie that it’s against the rules to tell him about the future. Stu proceeds to time travel, but Stewie hops on and says, “Surprise!” This is a reference to Star Trek IV, when Gillian does the same to Admiral Kirk when he transports onto the hijacked Bird of Prey which then travels through time.
  • The opening sequence of the seven-segment display “FG” is a reference to the 24 sequence. The voiceover, “Previously, on Family Guy,” is voiced by Kiefer Sutherland who plays Jack Bauer, the protagonist on 24.
  • Stewie tries to get Stu to play 'The Glad Game' which is a reference to a game made up by the title character of the novel Pollyanna. The things Stewie states make him glad include: a pinwheel, a big wedge of cake from the fair, a doo-dad for his hat, and the first cut into a fresh piece of construction paper.
