This is the first episode which mentions Chris's talent.
This episode provides a back story for the later episode "A Picture's Worth a Thousand Bucks", in which Chris' painting talent is discovered by a New York art dealer. Peter's attitude towards Chris' drawings in this episode is similar to his attitude towards Chris' painting at the beginning of the later episode. In "Fore Father", Chris shows an interest in animation.
Stewie sarcastically remarks to Lois’s creation of Jell-O for dessert by saying “Oooh, Jello, How exotic! Why, I feel like I’m on the deck of the QE2”.
In this episode a cutaway gag shows Peter's plan to sneak into a carnival disguised as a horse failing when the ticket man realizes that horses can't talk. However, later episodes such as "Boys Do Cry" and "Airport '07", show animals interacting with humans through speech.
