Episode Notes
This episode plays a medieval version of the end credits tune.

This episode marks the last appearance of Mr. Jonathan Weed as a semi-regular character.

The song "So Long, Farewell" was allowed to be used by permission of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Coorperation under 2 conditions: The song is not to be made fun of, and a fart joke later in the episode must be removed (even though it wasn't even related to the song).



Episode Quotes
Black Knight: You see kids, your father is nothing but a fizzle!
(Peter reappears in armour and on a horse.)
Peter: Nobody calls me a fizzle and gets away with it! Except for that one guy who called me a fizzle and then ran away, he got away with it. But most of the people who call me a fizzle don't get away with it! Actually he was the only guy to ever call me a fizzle, but after today only half the people who have ever called me a fizzle will have gotten away with it!

Stewie: Hey there big guy? Hmmm? How you holdin' up? Would you like a so-da? Hmm? A so-da?.....Oh what the hell, I tried.



Episode Goofs
The car door Peter opens when getting out for the Renaissance Fair opens on the wrong end.

When Stewie, Meg, and Chris sing the song, Stewie climbs up the stairs to stair number 3. Yet, in the next shot he is on stair number 2.

Chris, Meg, and Stewie pass by the same picture of Mr. and Mrs. Pewterschmidt while going up the stairs that they passed at the bottom.



Cultural References
Stewie: And I'm Lecil

The clothes the kids are wearing are similar to the ones the kids in "The Sound of Music" are wearing.

Peter: ..I'll have to go back to my job at the Electric Company

'The Electric Company' is a kids educational show.

Mr. Weed: Our original name was Bermuda Grass

Bermuda Grass is a slang term for Marijuana, just as Weed, Mr. Weed's current last name, is.

Kids: So Long, Farewell

The song the kids are singing is similar to the one the kids in "The Sound Of Music" sing.

Peter: We had bad luck with dinner guests. Remember when Margot Kidder was here?

Margot Kidder played a Lois Lane in the Superman movies. She had serious bipolar disorder which caused her serious problems later in life.
