Episode Goofs
We see both sides of the parking ticket Stu gets, he really doesn't have to pay it because it's blank on both sides.

Stu takes the Go-Gurt out of a brown paper bag and drops it on the floor but when the camera pans out the bag isn't there.

Cultural References
The title “Stu & Stewie's Excellent Adventure” is a take off of the 1989 Keanu Reeves Alex Winter movie titled “Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure”

The •FG• Opening

The digital “Previously on FG” opening was inspired by the other FOX show “24”, including voice over by the star Keifer Sutherland

During the opening and “Previously On” clips is an aptly labeled unrelated clip from “The Chevy Chase Show”. Chevy had a dismal failure of a talk show in 1993.

Stu: “...and singing Donna Summer into your hairbrush”

The Donna Summer song Stu & Stewie sing is called “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)”

Stewie: “Did they ever find a successful vehicle for Ellen Cleghorne?”

Ellen Cleghorne made her mark on “Saturday Night Live” from 1991 to 1995.
She hasn't had much of a career since then.

Stewie asks himself the same question when he returns from the future.

Stu: “In fact just last summer I went back to visit Jesus Christ, it turns out his abilities might have been exaggerated a bit”

The interlocking fingers bit and humming tune Jesus is doing is a take off of real skit magician/comedian Art Metrano has done on many shows including The Tonight Show.
He apparently didn't get the joke because he sued FOX and Seth for copyright infringement in 2007.

Art's lawsuit was without merit because on Thursday July 16th 2009, Judge Philip S. Gutierrez of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted Twentieth Century Fox’s motion to dismiss the case.

Stu: “Goodbye Stewie”
Stewie: {hops on Stu's back} “Surprise!”

Stewie jumping on Stu's shoulders sand saying “Surprise!” as they vanish is a reference to “Star Trek IV: The Journey Home”. The character Dr. Gillian Taylor jumps on Captain Kirk as he's beamed aboard the Klingon ship forcing the crew to take her with them

Man: “Give me Mork & Mindy. HaHa that's not how you sit in a chair”

“Mork & Mindy” was a spin off of the sitcom “Happy Days” starring Robin Williams & Pam Dawber.
Mork had a running gag in which he would stand on his head cross-legged when sitting in a chair.

Stewie: “Oh hey, did they ever unfreeze Walt Disney”
Stu: “Ugh, unfortunately”

Reference to the urban myth that Walt Disney was frozen after he died, despite the fact he was cremated as well as the views that he was an (rumored) anti-semite

The DC Universe's characters Superman & Wonder Woman

Stu: “See look, here's The Lockhorns”

“The Lockhorns” is a one panel syndicated comic that began in 1968 by William Hoest.

Stewie: “You got these from Parade Magazine? You read Parade Magazine!”

“Parade Magazine”, founded in 1941 is a national Sunday newspaper magazine, distributed in more than 400 newspapers in the United States.

Stu & Fran: “Go-Gurt Day!”

Go-Gurt is an brand of yogurt in squeezable tubes instead of cups marketed to kids so it can be eaten 'on the go'

Fran: “I better get back to my department before Genghis the day manager makes his rounds”

Reference to Genghis Khan who was the ruler of the Mongol Empire

Stewie: “Tell me, how many times have we gotten into those Lane Bryant stretch pants”

Lane Bryant is a line of clothing made more plus size women

Brian: “Wow look at me, hanging out drinking with Ernest Hemingway, Van Gogh & Kurt Cobain”

Ernest Hemingway was a novelist who wrote, among many works, “The Old Man and the Sea”.
Vincent van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist artist.
Kurt Cobain was the lead singer for the band “Nirvana”

Stu: “My word”
Stewie: “Yes evidently the razor wasn't invented til sometime in the late 80s”

Stu & Stewie read “The Joy of Sex”. They apparently are reading the original 1972 version since the illustrations are of men & women who can use some “trimming”

To help Stu with his love making rhythm, Stewie sings “Sir Joseph Porter's Song (When I was a Lad I served a Term)” from “H. M. S. Pinafore”

Joe: “Who wears short shorts? I wear short shorts!”

“Who Wears Short Shorts” was a catch phrase for Nair Hair Removal commercials from the 80s

Stewie: “Even I had that job at the airport”

Stewie allows Jonny Quest and Dr. Benton Quest but detains Hadji at the airport gate.
these characters are from the cartoon series “Jonny Quest” that ran from 1964-1965 and another incarnation that aired in 1996

Stewie: “It smells like Head & Shoulders, but you don't have dandruff”
Stu: “Exactly”

The tag line from the “Head & Shoulder” shampoo commercials from the 80s/90s

Stewie: “Damn overshot it. 1974 University of Denver. I say, Condoleezza Rice goes here”

Condoleezza Rice is the 66th United States Secretary of State under George W. Bush. Her Family Guy portrayal is the polar opposite of how she is under Bush's administration

Stewie: “Damn, I got to get to that swim meet”

Stewie's mad dash to the swimming pool is taken from Matthew Broderick's 1986 Ferris Bueller's Day Off complete with music “March of the Swivelheads” by “English Beat”
