Family Guy: It Takes A Village Idiot, And I Married One

When Lois runs for mayor of Quahog, she isn't the front-runner until she 'dumbs down' her political views.

Meanwhile, Peter's enjoying being the "first lady" and all of the perks that go along with it.

Jason Voorhees appears twice, once in an interview with Trisha Takanawa, and again as the manager of the "Britches and Hose" clothing store. Jason also appeared in the Simpsons episode Stop, or My Dog Will Shoot! (which aired on the same night as this episode), apparently having been killed by the family's dog.


Stewie's portrayal of Mozart as he plays Haydn, Handel, and "Peter Griffin" is a reference to Milos Forman's 1984 movie Amadeus. In the movie, Mozart mocks the work of Joseph Haydn, George Frideric Handel, and Antonio Salieri.

The Japanese characters (Kanji) that are displayed behind Quagmire as he entertains an Asian woman, says Banzai. The word can mean quite a few things, including "long life" and an expression of joy.
