Episode Quotes
Bullock: Attention, everyone! I have incredible news!
Stan: The war in Iraq is over?!
Bullock: Better. We're getting a Ping-Pong table!!!

Hayley: I'm a hypocrite, too, Dad. I used Paco to get at you, then tried to throw him away by calling INS.
Stan: You heartless bitch! I'm kidding.

Hayley: What happened to the land of the free? These people have a right to be here.
Stan: People? They're parasites sucking on the rich blood of America. And we need that blood to shed for oil.

Hayley: Hello, Father. Wondering how I escaped from the basement?
Stan: No, not really.
Hayley: (Dissapointed) But it involved training rats.

Stan: Did you know Greg and Terry have an illegal alien walking their dog?
Francine: Isn't it terrible? I'd be way too uncomfortable having some poor immigrant working for me like that.
Stan: (Pause) Oh, are you done? I was hoping you'd talk more about yourself.

Stan: So, INS, huh? I'm a CIA man myself. I suppose that kind of makes us brothers.
Agent Hopkins: My brother died in a car crash when I was 11.
Stan: (Laughs nerviously) Cars.

Stan: Do you have any relatives?
Paco: No, I'm an only child....I'm kidding, I'm Mexican!

Stan: Wow, "Paco" must be Mexican for "lightning hands." How'd you like to come work for me? I'll pay you $2.00 an hour and all the Mr. Pibb you can drink...maximum two a day.
Williams: At Best Buy, we had a slushie machine.
Stan: Why don't you just marry Best Buy if you love it so much?!

Patti: Stan, did you know that in some countries the bear is considered a demigod?
Stan: No, I didn't, Patti. Did you know that in the gay community a hairy man is also known as a "bear"?

Episode Goofs
The United States federal agency responsible for apprehending Stan and the illegal workers is clearly identified as the INS, but slightly less than four years before the show's airdate, the INS was dissolved into new offices of the Department of Homeland Security.

Williams: At Best Buy, we had a slushie machine.
Stan: Why don't you just marry Best Buy if you love it so much?!

Best Buy is a popular electronic's store.

The Sound of Music

The final scene of the episode is animated exactly the way the classic movie The Sound of Music ended. Including what the characters are doing.

Paco: No, I'm an only child....I'm kidding, I'm Mexican!

Paco is joking about the stereotype the Mexican families/households usually have a lot of kids/people.
