(Accidentally Thunderbolts her making her expode)
God: Jesus Christ!
Jesus: What?
God: Get the escalade, we're outta here!

Quagmire: Oh! Naked plastic chicks!

Cleveland: I must say, I do feel a strange satisfation watchin' the black ball topple all those self-righteous white pins.
Joe: Can't blame 'em for being self-righteous, the black ball's in their neighborhood uninvited.
Cleveland: The black ball's done nothing wrong.
Joe: If the black ball's innocent it has nothing to fear.

Peter: This sucks. Now the only thing anybody's going to remember me for after I die is being that blind guy.
Brian: Don't give up yet, Peter. I mean, many blind people live rich fulfilling lives.
Peter: Oh, I don't know Brian. I mean, I guess can give it a shot.
(Peter gets up from the couch and walks past Stewie who trips him with couch ottoman)
Stewie: Ha-ha-ha. Oh my God, I almost didn't do it.I ALMOST didn't do it. I thought, is this in bad taste?
But you know what, I went for it. I went for it and I'm so glad I did. Oooh, worth it. Totally worth it.

Mort: I just never stopped believing. Say no to acid!

God: Hey! Wanna see what I can do? Alright. Ready? Check it out. Beer. Glass. Alright. Oh I guess I'll go over here for a minute da da da da Oh Holy Crap that's still pouring itself! Oh Wow Oh that's amazing. I've never seen anyone do that! You wanna go out later?

Tom Tucker: Coming Up! Diane's weight.

Stewie: This is the worst use of money since i tricked out my Big Wheel.

Peter: Holy crap that freakin' place was on fire?!

Lois: Peter you're really are putting away those Mentos.
Peter: Oh these are not Mentos, Lois. Everybody you are looking at a guy who is going to set a new world record. I am going to eat more nickels than anyone has ever eaten before.

Keebler Elves: Alright, we attack the Rice Crispy guys at dawn.

Peter: Have you ever seen that show Scrubs?

Scrubs is a comedy show which airs on NBC. Neil Goldman, not the voice of Neil Goldman but Neil Goldman a writer for Family Guy, is also a head writer for Scrubs.

Peter: Ok, Bonnie, you've been pregnant for like six years. Either have the baby or don't.

This is a funny joke made towards Bonnie. Since technically Family Guy has been around since 1999 and she has been pregnant since then, she has been pregnant for 6 years. Although it could be argued that the other characters in the show have not aged at all since the beginning of Family Guy, so why would Bonnie and the babies 9 months be up?

Star Wars

At Peter's award giving ceremony Star Wars music is played and Chewbacca, C3PO and R2D2 are present.

This is a reference to the ending of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
