Episode Notes
Langley Falls Post Newspaper Headline

This episode introduces the character

Al Tuttle | The Smith's Neighbor

Bob & Linda Memari | The Smiths' Neighbors

This episode contained a short sub movie type thing about Roger's Gold Gem-Studded Turd. It ended with a "to be continued..."

This is the second time that Stan says, "I see it, I see it." (the first time being in "Rodger Codger")

At the cookout, the apron Stan is wearing says "100% American Beef".

The billboard that Steve and Roger fly in front of on the bike says: "The Moon: Our Nighttime Sun! The Lunar Awareness Council."

Episode Quotes
Francine: Say hi to Betty for me!
Tuttle: Oh, I would, but she died six months ago. The big C.
Francine: Cancer?
Tuttle: No, the big letter C from the Coca-Cola sign. Fell right on top of her.

Steve: The alien in this video game is awesome. He shoots laser beams, he levitates -- he's the coolest alien ever!
(Roger glares at Steve)
Steve: Oh, I didn't mean...
Roger: No, no, no, no, you said it. It's out there. Now we have to live with it.
Steve: Well, it's kind of true. You don't have any special powers, do you?
Roger: Well, I'm a good listener. Do you know how rare that is in this universe?
Steve: Yeah, that'll take down an F-14. Can't you do anything?
Roger: Well, I can get my feelings hurt and throw a world-class hissy fit!

Francine: Wanna meet her?
Terry: No, I just want Greg to check out her sun-damaged skin. See, that’s the kind of leather I want for the couch in the den.
Greg: Mmm, yeah, nice.

Stan: The Memaris have clearly recruited others. They're like vampires... or the gays.
Hayley: Could you get any more insane?
Stan: Quick, plug your butt with this clove of garlic.

Stan: Hayley! The neighborhood! What are you two doing here?

Francine: Yes, it's going to be a block party.
Stan: So we'll provide the burgers and beer, as long as you provide your charming selves.
Neighbor #1: So, no cavity search?
Stan: Available on request.
Neighbor #1: Oh, you.

Hayley: Dad, what you did is racial profiling. The Memari's had nothing to do with that gazebo, and everyone knows it.
Stan: These people are trying to destroy us, and you want proof?
Hayley: Yes.
Stan: Oh, well, that's fair. I'll go get some.

Francine: I was finally making friends, Stan. How could you ruin my party?
Stan: It was easy. I just yelled "terrorist" and everyone ran away. Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you asked, how did I ruin your party. And I'm like, you were there, baby. You had a front row seat.

Episode Goofs
Steve's bike seems to be missing when he and Roger start to walk home after the accident at the transformer.

For one scene, the color chart on the fridge goes from Green-Blue-Yellow-Orange-Red to Blue-Green-Yellow-Orange-Red

Cultural References
The scenes with Roger in Steve's bike basket & the one sailing past the moon billboard are allusions to the classic 1982 Steven Spielberg movie, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial

Steve: The Psycho Rangers are gaining on us!

The Psycho Rangers where the bizarro versions of the Power Rangers.

Stan: I'll be fun in the kitchen!
In the bedroom! In the dining room!
And I'll be fun at Costco when we're shopping for bulk paper towels!

Stan's quote is an allusion to a speech made by the former Governor of Vermont Howard Dean where he shouts the states he intends to win after coming in third in the Iowa caucuses in 2004.

This final snapshot is an allusion to the photos from Abu Ghraib that revealed abuse and torture inflicted on the detainees
