* BuriedAlive:
** In "Bullocks to Stan", Stan tried to help Jeff toughen up to win Hayley back after she broke up with him. Part of this involved burying him in the backyard.
-->'''Jeff:''' I can't breathe!\\
'''Stan:''' Plenty of air out here, Jeff. I'm filling my lungs with it now.\\
'''Jeff:''' Mr. Smith, please!\\
'''Stan:''' Real men stay calm under pressure, Jeff. By the way, you only have five more minutes to learn that lesson. Two if you panic.
** In "With Friends Like Steve's", Barry buries a sleeping Francine under the Smiths' yard when he turns FauxAffablyEvil from not taking his medication.
** In "Merlot Down Dirty Shame", Roger buries Francine alive because they had an AccidentalKiss and he doesn't want Stan finding out out of fear that it'll ruin their newfound friendship. Later on, he ends up burying Stan; needless to say, as soon as Stan gets out he is ''beyond'' pissed.

** He returns [[spoiler: as Jeff's adopted son]] in the 2011 Christmas episode, only this time, he really is straight up evil. Killing him is the best way for Stan to prove his devotion to the Christian faith again after he got excommunicated. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, Nemo ends up getting shipped off to live with SarahPalin in Alaska, and the only reason Stan got back in the church was because Roger's pimp cup was actually the Holy Grail]].

** Snot is a younger and less crude version of Dudley "Booger" Dawson from ''RevengeOfTheNerds''. He is even voiced by the same actor, Curtis Armstrong.
** The Golden Turd sequences might be one to the Giant Chicken fights from WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy. They bare no relation to the plot whatsoever, they last at least two-five minutes long depending on the episode, and they both consist of a continuing saga.

** In the episode "Delorean Story-An", Roger and Francine decide to crash a French masquerade ball, and have something of a short conversation in French. Roger speaks gibberish that he tries to make sound like French, but Francine tells him (regarding Hayley) "Elle est dérangée avec nous", which is a literal translation of "She is upset with us."


Added DiffLines:

** In the episode "Francine's Flashback", Stan tells Hayley a story of how, on his wedding day, he placed a single yellow flower in a white bouquet, symbolizing Francine's sunshine in his cloudy world, and he shows Hayley the flower. In "Wife Insurance", Francine looks longingly at a picture from their wedding day, in which she's holding the very same flower.
