- [Peter works as an OBGYN and gives news to an expecting couple]
- Peter: Well, Mr. and Mrs. Miller, I got the results of your ultrasound and I got some news for you.
- Mrs. Miller: Wait, wait, wait. We don't wanna know if it's a boy or a girl yet.
- Peter: Okay, okay, well it's not breathing.
- Stewie: Let me ask you, doesn't it bother you, being an adult man that short?
- Tom Cruise: Oh no way, man. Cuz, guess what? This is what I think of, every time I hear the word "short". The middle of the word "short" is "or".
- Stewie: Technically it's "hor" (pronounced: whore), but go on.
- Tom Cruise: "Or", gives you a choice. You can be either short or not! I choose not to be short.
- Stewie: Wow, you need a road map for that one.
- Tom Cruise: I'll tell you what. You spend the day with me. You'll see how great it is to be short. You'll feel like you're discovering a new world! And you know what's in the middle of the word "world"?
- Stewie: Um, ... "orl" (pronounced: oral)?
- Tom Cruise: [sigh], N-No, it's "Or", man!
- First Father's Day special.
- This title was originally registered under "Crip Off the Old Block".
- This episode introduces Joe's father, Bud Swanson.
- Apparently, Bud is prejudiced toward crippled people. However, in "Boopa-Dee Bappa-Dee", it was revealed that Joe's Mom was in a wheelchair. However, it's possible that this was just because she was so old, and not due to a disability.
- A cutaway gag featuring Meg's birthday takes place at the same time as Father's Day, meaning that Meg's birthday, meaning her birthday is sometime in June. Assuming the Father's day in this episode takes place on the same year as it aired, 2014, this would mean her birthday is on June 15th.
