Episode Notes
The marriage counselor suggests putting cameras in the Griffin's house. This has happened before in the episode "Fifteen Minutes of Shame".

This episodes explains why Stewie's head is shaped the way it is. Although it doesn't make sense (see goofs).



Episode Quotes
Marriage Counselor: I'd like to put video cameras in every room of your house so that I can observe your uncensored behavior.
Peter: Wow, just like that show Big Brother. Except somebody will be watching

Peter: Hey Lois, can you grab me a beer? Lois?
Chris: Dad, I think she went out.
Peter: Alright then you be Lois.
Chris: Okay.
Peter: Hey Lois, can you get me a be...oh my God, you've really let yourself go!
Chris: Well maybe if you bought me some nice clothes once in a while!

(Peter, Quagmire, Joe, and Cleveland are using a radar to listen to what people are saying and they happen to pick up of what Quagmire is thinking to himself.)
Quagmire: God this itches! I wonder who I got it from. Probably that skank that I gave a ride to the gas station. Last time I do someone a favor. Oh God! They heard me! Oh god! I heard me! LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!

Stewie: Augh! What the hell do you think you're doing?
Brian: I'm cleaning myself.
Stewie: You were clean fifteen minutes ago, now you're just on vacation.

Peter: C'mon, let's go drink 'til we can't feel feelings anymore.

Chris: (when Peter goes to attack Hugh Grant on the movie screen) Don't do it dad! He's bigger than you!

Man: There's a little girl stuck in that well. Unfortunately no one's arms are long enough to reach her except for that one guy, but he's helping that woman tickle a midget in a tree.



Episode Goofs
Peter's prom date, the one who has not washed her hand since 25 years ago when Peter touched it, is wearing the glove on her right hand. However, after they look at and feed Peter's feces in the toilet, her left hand is the dirty one.

Apparently Stewie's head shape is from hitting it on the ceiling, however in 'Chitty Chitty Death Bang" we see him born with a "watermelon" shaped head.

Brenda (Peter's old girlfriend) has a baby while talking to him, however, the baby is born without an umblical cord. This mistake has been made before in "Emission Impossible".



Cultural References
BadGuys: Let's go bug Q-Bert

Q-Bert is a very old video game, made around Pacmans time.

Peter: (Holding Staff)

When Peter picks up the staff and shines the light on some boxes to find his little black book; this is a reference to the "Raiders of the Lost Arc" movie.

Peter: Wow, just like that show Big Brother. Except someone will be watching.

Big Brother is a reality show on CBS. The show follows around a group of housemates, watching their every move on camera.

Stewie: It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again...

This is the line spoken by the serial killer Buffalo Bill in the movie Silence of the Lambs.

Stewie: Well, we could watch 5 minutes of comedy by Rita Rudner.

Rita Rudner is a stand-up comedian who is well known for telling long, and arguably un-funny jokes.
