Episode Quotes
O.J.: “Hi. Are you Peter Griffin?”
Peter: “That's my name, don't put a knife in it.”

Episode Goofs
Brian asks Stewie what is was like to perform the words of Oscar winner Diablo Cody.
She didn't win it until the end of February 2008.
Brian couldn't possibly have known that since the events in “The Juice is Loose” happened in March 2007.

Cultural References
Peter is reading Teen Beat magazine. First published in 1975, Teen Beat is an American magazine that is geared towards teen-aged readers (obviously).

American actor Robert Mitchum (1917-1997) is mentioned in this episode as starring in a fictitious movie titled “Out of Shape In Shape Guy from the 50's”

During the forced “interview” between Brian & Stewie, they discuss American actor Jack Black, Oscar winning writer Diablo Cody (see Episode Goofs) & American actor, comedian & Oscar winner Robin Willams

Marty McFly: “Stewie! I have to tell you about the future, on the night I go back...”
Stewie: “NoNoNoNo wait, hang on Michael, I have to tell you about YOUR future”

Reference to the 1985 comedy “Back to the Future” when Marty returns to 1965 from 1985 & seeing Doc die.

Also, Stewie wants to warn the 1985 version of Michael J. Fox about his future meaning the fact he will be diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1991

Peter: “Ooooh Nick Jonas is so cute”

Peter and the guys are looking through dozens of teen magazine featuring the music group The Jonas Brothers

Peter: “Yikes, Looks like I need a distraction”

Peter uses the performance of country singer Conway Twitty (1933-1993) from an appearance on the variety tv show Hee Haw

Peter: “...and watch Jimmy Kimmel try”

Peter is referring to Jimmy's ABC late night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Honey Nut Cherrios cereal is mentioned in the episode

Peter: “...had a bit part in Roots, couple of great scenes in The Towering Inferno”
Lois: “Chuck Conners, he was a basketball player...”

“Roots” was a 1977 miniseries based on Alex Haley's book Roots: The Saga of an American Family.

“The Towering Inferno” was a 1974 disaster movie w/ an all star cast, Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire, Richard Chamberlain, Robert Vaughn & Robert Wagner.

American actor Chuck Conners (1921-) is Lois' incorrect guess.

Stewie: “Good Grief”

The same line is spoken by the “Peanuts” character Charlie Brown when he also has a bad experience with football

Mayor West: “We don't want you in our town Simpson. We don't love you like we did in 1993”

Fellow FOX character Homer Simpson from “The Simpsons” (1989-) makes an appearance in Quahog.

West's second comment may be a reference to the opinions of some fans that the quality of The Simpsons has declined in the past few seasons.

The plot revolves around O.J. and his involvement in the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.

Fred Goldman, father of Ron, is featured with a comically large mustache.

The other “characters” involved in those are events that are mentioned, but not seen, are Kato Kalin, Al Cowlings & Marsha Clark
