Ricky Blitt played Joel, Alyssa Milano's agent, and also wrote this episode.
Alyssa Milano and her agent appear "live" in this episode, they were not animated.
Peter: You may have killed her when you shoved all those dollar bills down her throat, you may have killed her when you hit her with the stool... I don't know, I'm not a doctor. But I'll tell you what didn't kill her.... smoking!
Frank: Gentlemen, I propose we send a message to tobacco companies everywhere by finding the El Dorado cigarette company infinity billion dollars!
Congressman: That's the spirit Frank! But I think a real number might be more effective.
Peter: Oh, yeah, yeah, that plane crash I told you about... it turned out to be gas.
Peter: What's your name?
Congressman: Dick Armey.
Peter: Hahahahahahaha.... What's your wife's name? Vagina coastguard?
Congressman: Cigarettes killed my father, and raped my mother.
Peter: ...but I'll tell you what's not cool--killing strippers. Strippers are people too; naked people who may be willing to pleasure you for a price you negotiate later behind the curtain of a VIP room. Besides, there's no reason to kill them, 'cause most of them are already dead inside...Good night, folks!
Peter: Mr. Weed? This Peter Griffin. I will not be coming to work today, I was in a terrible plane crash. My entire family was killed and I am a vegetable. I'll see ya tomorrow.
Brian: Oh, please, Peter, your excuses are more fake than FDR's legs.
Meg & Peter: (gasp)
Brian: Too soon?
Chris: I'm so hungry I could ride a horse......I don't get it. Well, I could ride it to the store, I guess.
The opening is similar to the opening of Marlo Thomas' hit show "That Girl That Girl".
Peter: This girl didn't have a family... it'll be like she never existed.
A scene similar to this one occured in "The Godfather II".
Mr. Griffin Goes to Washington
The title of this episode is a take off from the classic movie "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington".
Bill: I'm just a bill. I'm only a bill, and I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill.
Another reference to "School House Rock".
