The end credits tune of this episode is done in a rap theme. Like the one in "Mr. Saturday Knight" which was done in the medeival theme.
Peter is the only one singing the end credits although in several parts his black friends join in on a line.
Dennis Miller: I don't wanna go on a rant here but America's foreign policy makes about as much sense as Beowolf having sex with Robert Fulton at the first Battle of Antietam. I mean when a neo-conservative defenstrates it's like Raskalnakov filibuster dioxymonohydrostinate.
Peter: What the hell does rant mean?
(Quagmire finds a cheerleader tied up in a bathroom stall)
Quagmire: Dear Diary, Jackpot!
Tom Tucker: And now time for Ollie Williams with the Black-U-Weather Forecast. Ollie?
Ollie: IT'S GONNA RAIN!
Tom Tucker: Thanks, Ollie.
Chris: What's a library, dad?
Peter: Oh, it's just a place where homeless people come to shave and go BM.
Peter: I got no idea how to be black ... y'know, except for not smiling when I get my picture taken.
Peter:...yah and then Chris starts in with all this Yo! Yo! Yo! stuff and I don't know what the hell he's talking about. So I started beating him with a hose and then my arm got tired...so I came here.
Black man: So, it's agreed, we'll keep on pretending to like pigs' feet simply to confound the white man.
Mr. Pewterschmidt: My jacket's in the kitchen, please don't write on it.
Brian: Like those two weeks you spent narrating your own life.
(Cut to Peter narrating his life)
Peter: I walked into the kitchen and sat down at the table. I looked with a grimace at the questionable meal Lois had placed in front of me. Of course I would never tell her how disgusted I was with her cooking, but somehow I think she knew. Lois had always been full of energy and life, but lately I had begun to grow more aware of her aging: the bright exuberant eyes that I had fallen in love with were now beginning to grow dull and listless with the long fatigue of a weary life. (Lois knocks Peter out) I awoke several hours later in a daze.
The closed captions for this episode were accidentally aired during The Bernie Mac Show the day before.
The color of the dress of the lady sitting behind Stewie at the basketball game changes from yellow to red, and then back to yellow again.
There is a shade on the back door in the episode. This is one of two episode where a shade has appeared on the back door. The other episode being "Stuck Together, Torn Apart".
Mr. Pewterschmidt places the book of his family's history down on the couch, and then it dissapears.
The toy firetruck Mr. Pewterschmidt slips on had not been there in the previous shot.
Mr. Pewterschmidt is holding a coffee cup while talking to Peter in the kitchen. Then when they enter the living room, the coffee cup has changed to his pipe.
Mr. Pewterschmidt puts a LIT pipe in his bathrobe pocket when writing a $20,000 check for Peter.
The info for this episode mistakenly credits Chris for finding out that he has a black ancestor. Actually it was Peter who found out.
Lois: Oh my God, you turned our living room into Pee Wee's Playhouse?
Pee Wee's Playhouse was a childrens TV series. Hosted by Pee Wee Herman.
Peter: I was there when Tootie got those painful braces!
On the show "Facts Of Life" Tootie, the little African American girl, gets braces somewhere in the series.
Stewie: I'm telling you juice she's going behind your back.
The man Stewie is ranting to in the bar is OJ Simpson. Presumbly, OJ leaves the bar to go kill his wife.
Peter: Our son's posessed!
When Peter stops the car and freaks out because of the way Chris is talking he thinks Chris has been posessed. This is a reference to the movie "The Exorcist". In which a little girl becomes posessed by the Devil.
