Episode Goofs
Steve's popsicle vanishes after Roger does his human impression.

When the kids are running to the moon bounce, Nathan from “Stan's Night Out” is seen when he wasn't there during Stan's tour of the house.

When Roger is talking to Stan in the moon bounce, Francine walks up.
When she does, the bottom of the moon bounce window comes up to her chest but when Roger tells her she's in way over her head, the window reaches her hips.



Cultural References
Star of 1998's “54”, 1999's “Cruel Intentions” & 2004's “Crash” (to name a few), American actor Ryan Phillippe (1974-) is featured in this episode as the model for Klaus' new haircut.

Stan: “I don't know Francine how long did Billy Madison last, forever? It..it felt like forever.”

The 1995 comedy “Billy Madison” starring Adam Sandler (1966-) is mentioned in this episode.

During Klaus' hair cutting montage, the 1980 song by Diana Ross, “I'm Coming Out” from her album “diana” is heard.

The La-La-La song that plays twice in this episode is called “The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana)” & it is the theme song for the 60s kids show “The Banana Splits Adventure Hour” (1968-1969) written by Mark Barkan and Richie Adams.

Stan returning home is similar to the scene from the 1994 drama, “The Shawshank Redemption” starring Morgan Freeman (1937-), Tim Robbins (1958-) & James Whitmore (1921-2009).
The scene in question involves Whitmore's character, “Brooks Hatlen”, who after being released from Shawshank commits suicide because he cannot cope with the outside world.
