Episode Goofs
Unless we're supposed to assume there are two separate Officer Turlingtons, when he speaks to his momma, he says his name is Daniel but in the episode “Chimdale”, Mr. Chimdale calls him Ron.

On the right side of the screen, the bottom 'No Trans Fat' sign suddenly bleeds over the one above it.

Stan: “The new Pixar movie, Clothes. It's about the secret lives of Clothes. John Ratzenberger plays a tie.”

The fictitious movie Stan mentions is an allusion to the Pixar movie series, “Toy Story” (1995), “Toy Story 2” (1999) & “Toy Story 3” (2010) which shows what toys do when humans aren't around.

John Ratzenberger (1947-), probably best known for his role in the long running sitcom “Cheers” (1982-1993), portrays the character “Hamm” in each of the Toy Story movies & has also appeared in every Pixar movie since 1995.

Former “Cheers” star Kirstie Alley (1951-) is mentioned in this episode.

Former Princess of Wales, Diana Spencer (1961-1997) is mentioned in this episode.

Langley Falls residents pull down a statue of a man holding a donut similar to the way the Iraqi people pulled down a statue of Sadam Hussein (1937-2006) after the U.S. ousted him from power in April 2004.

The statue in the episode is itself is a parody of the “Big Boy Statue” that stood outside Big Boy Restaurants.

On the door to the men's room there's the character “Black Spy” from Spy vs. Spy. The wordless black and white comic strip that has been published in Mad Magazine since 1961

Klaus: “Favorite movie?”
Roger: “Dude Where's My...”

Roger mistakenly thinks Klaus' favorite movie is the 2000 comedy starring Ashton Kutcher (1978-) and Seann William Scott (1976-), “Dude, Where's My Car?”
