Episode Goofs
Stan and Francine go back in time to 1996 just days before they get married and Francine gets pregnant with Hayley, however, in the 2009 Season 5 episode Shallow Vows, Stan & Francine are about to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary and Hayley's stated age is 18 both of which couldn't be true if this episode takes place in 2012.

Unless we're supposed to presume Shallow Vows took place in 2016 and although not officially stated, Hayley is now 20.

In the Season 4 episode Delorean Story-An, Stan states he has no idea what Back to the Future is but the 1996 Stan uses the movie to simplify the time travel explanation.

Roger mentions Elián González and the events surrounding his return to Cuba, but these events happened in 2000 not 1996.

After we see Hayley's kidney fail, the Ultimate Kelly glasses and the glass Hayley put down have vanished.

Cultural References
Hayley shouts "Bistore" before finishing her drink.
This is a direct allusion to Karen Allen's character, Marion Ravenwood, from Indiana Jones & the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
