Episode Notes
“Quagmire's Baby” was seen by 8.283 million viewers

In an extended scene from Volume 8:

After Chris tells Peter about the movie White Noise, before he tunes in Reagan, Peter is seen fiddling with the ham radio saying “Hello ghosts, come in ghosts. I am Peter Griffin. I am your friend. Don't be shy. Humphrey Bogart, Don Knotts, that kid I was supposed to be watching at the pool.”

In an extended scene from Volume 8:

After Lois says she thanks god Chris is healthy she says, “Isn't this a beautiful little girl?”
Glen: “Yeah but she kind of stinks.”
Lois: “Well no wonder, she's pooped herself.”
Glen: “EW! it's new car smell.”
Peter: “What?”
Glen: “That's what a new car smells like. It's disgusting.”
Peter: “Where are you buying you cars, Quagmire?”
Glen: “I buy them online at poopcars.com”
Peter: “Okay well I think I just solved the mystery.”

In an altered scene from Volume 8:

After Stewie says this was not a fruitful endeavor, instead of Brian saying he wanted to lick that up, he says “You don't see my ATM card in there do you?”
Stewie: “No. Do you want me to dig around and see if...”
Brian: “No, f_ _k it, it's fine”



Episode Goofs
Mistake by Writers:

Lois leaves a basket of stuff to help Glen with the baby and tells him if he has any questions they are right across the street.

Glen wouldn't have to cross any streets since obviously, the Griffins live next door to Glen and the Swansons live next door to Peter and Lois.

Continuity:

The paper Brian puts on the couch before he asks Stewie 'who the hell was that' has vanished when he says 'you cloned yourself?'

Animation Error:

Bitch Brian's jaw turns from white to pink after it falls off.



Cultural References
Peter: “Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to do some skywriting”

Peter's skywriting is an allusion to the 1939 movie, “The Wizard of Oz”.
In the movie the Wicked Witch of the West writes “Surrender Dorothy”, Peter writes “Retire Cher”, of course talking about the famous singer/actress Cher (1946-)

Chris: “Wow the best of the World's Wildest Police Chases and it even has the one with The Flintstones”

Chris mentions the FOX reality show, “World's Wildest Police Videos” (1998-2001).
The host of the show, John Bunnell (1944-) provides his own voice for this episode.

The animated TV series, “The Flintstones” (1960-1966) is featured as one of the chase sequences.
Dino sticking his head through the roof & Fred Flintstone putting Pebbles and Bam Bam on his head is part of the intro of the show.

Peter: “This is a bigger rip-off than Shrunky Dinks”

“Shrinky Dinks” are the children's activity kit consisting of large flexible sheets which, when heated in an oven, shrink to small hard pieces.

Chris: “You know Dad, I saw that movie White Noise”

The 2005 thriller, “White Noise” starring Michael Keaton (1951-) is mentioned in this episode.

At the karaoke club, Peter and Ronald Reagan sing the 1976 song “Don't Go Breaking My Heart” originally sung by Elton John (1947-) & Kiki Dee (1947-)

Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950) is mentioned in this episode

Glen: “Peter, that's not Ronald Reagan that's Rich Little”

Rich Little is a professional celebrity impersonator.
His voice is provided by Seth MacFarlane in this episode, but some of Rich's best impressions are indeed former President of the United States, Ronald Reagan (1911-2004), Ed Sullivan (1902-1974) & Johnny Carson (1925-2005)

Peter: “Yeah but you were Agamemnon with me during the sale”

Even though Peter doesn't know what Agamemnon is, Agamemnon was king of Mycenae and commander in chief of the coalition that attacked Troy

Peter: “Wade V Boggs has not been overturned”

Peter means the landmark court case of “Roe v Wade” which legalized abortion.

Wade Boggs is a former professional baseball player for the Boston Red Soxx

Glen: “You're not going to put her with sand people are you?”
Adoption Agency Woman: “You mean like from Star Wars?”

Sand People aka Tusken Raiders where characters featured in the 1977 film “Star Wars: A New Hope”
