  • There is another hint at Stewie’s homosexuality when Brian teaches him how to ballroom dance, leading him to say “I love you” to Brian who replies with a shocked “What?”; Stewie, to cover it up, claims he said “Olive juice.” Brian responds by saying in confusion, “Olive...juice?” Stewie then says “Olive juice you too."
  • The previous episode, "Peter's Two Dads", depicts Peter discovering that he is actually a McFinnegan and not a Griffin. However in this episode he makes reference to his great-grandfather “Turn-of-the-Century-Take-On-All-Comers Griffin”, who looks exactly the same as Peter with the addition of a mustache and slightly different hairstyle.
  • Since the series inception, Peter has been 42. Stewie mentions this in “Brian Does Hollywood”, and this was confirmed in “Stewie Loves Lois” by Dr. Hartman. When Lois is talking to Peter in the tree, she tells him he's 43 years old.
  • Kermit the Frog appears in this episode for the fourth time in the series. The previous being in “Stewie Loves Lois”, “Deep Throats” and “Mother Tucker”.
  • Killing Lois is not one of Stewie's final wishes. This further adds to Stewie’s tolerance of Lois in the later episodes.
  • Stewie’s wistful ode to the “squiggly line” in his eye is actually a fairly accurate description of what is known as a floater, a deposit within the eyeball’s normally transparent vitreous humor.
  • Michael Clarke Duncan, who voiced the Stork, also worked with Mila Kunis in the video game Saint’s Row. Both were members of the same gang in the game.
  • In reality, Stewie's tan would've only been on his face and his hands because he had all of his clothes on when he was at the golf course.
  • Peter, behaving like a bully, dangles Joe from his shoulders with rope and performs “The Lonely Goatherd” from The Sound of Music, using Joe as a marionette.
  • Brian is given a copy of a movie that “is essentially Brokeback Mountain from the point of view of the horses” where one of the horses peeked inside the tent and learned their relationships the “hard way”.
  • After getting tanned, Stewie says he resembles a young Eartha Kitt and then impersonates her trademark feline drawl and the statements she made about the Vietnam War to President Lyndon B. Johnson.
  • Stewie sings Kokomo by The Beach Boys in his tanning bed. Similarly, when he is tanning in the garden, the song he is listening to is an instrumental version of “I Say a Little Prayer” by Dionne Warwick.
  • The song Brian and Stewie ballroom dance to is an instrumental version of "Cheek to Cheek" by Irving Berlin.
  • Britney Spears’ parenting skills are questioned in a scene where she is holding her baby while talking on a phone, pushing in his skull and using it as an ashtray, and then dropping him.
  • When Peter beats up Kyle and goes home, Kyle's parents call Lois and Peter hides in a tree in the Griffin's front yard, although, the Griffins don't have a tree in their front yard.
  • When Peter first goes to talk to Kyle, Peter never mentions his first name, but Kyle still calls him Peter when making fun of him.
  • The scene where Brian comments on Stewie’s new tan and Stewie says, “I’ll be getting more sex than that Wisconsin nymphomaniac who used to live upstairs,” followed by a cutaway of Stewie wide awake in his crib listening to a woman with a Midwestern accent having an orgasm offscreen, is cut on the censored airings.
  • When Brian squirts the lotion on a severely sunburned Stewie and Mr. Furley walks in, Brian originally says, “Oh! Uh, hi, Mr. Furley. This isn’t what it looks like!” before Mr. Furley says, “Never mind, I’ll come back later!” and leaves. The “This isn’t what it looks like” line is cut from the censored version to make it less obvious that it is an ejaculation joke.
  • The scene of Dick Cheney as a Wal-Mart greeter is not censored on the DVD.
