Episode Notes
Stewie states that his favorite meal is "cut Green Beans, Atkin's friendly potato sticks arranged in order of size, from large to small, and a Scooby-Doo yogurt with Shaggy's eyes scratched out."

This episode marks the first time ever that someone other than Chris has seen the Evil Monkey. However, Peter mistakes him for Meg.

The DVD commentary for "Stewie Loves Lois" reveals that Peter passing his exam and running out to the music of Kenny Loggins was not a reference to a specific movie, it was to generally parody the endings of cheesy 1980s teen movies (or as Seth MacFarlane calls them, "80s movie bull(sheet)"), Eric Stoltz films in particular.
