* ItaliansTalkWithHands: This trope occurs every time an Italian character appears in the show. It was itself directly parodied when Peter grew a mustache and thought he could speak Italian - by speaking gibberish and gesticulating.

** Peter jokes about this once after Quagmire reveals he knows how to speak French and mentions that it comes in handy when he's in Montreal. Peter says he always wanted to go to Canada, but then ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' went there, so ''Family Guy'' can't.

"The Story on Page One" has Meg attempting to enroll there, and Brian revealing he went there as well. "Brian Goes Back to College" involves him re-enrolling, since he dropped out one class short of graduating. [[spoiler:He fails again.]]

* ItsBeenDone: In-universe, this is everyone's reaction when Brian describes the plot of the novel he's been working on for years, "Faster Than The Speed Of Love", which is pretty much a blatant and complete rip-off of ''Film/IronEagle'', although Brian claims he never heard of the movie or its sequels, which the novel ''also'' rips off.

* HollywoodLaw: Several instances, but the issue in "An App A Day" stands out. While Chris sending a picture of his genitals was certainly child pornography, Joe cannot just label Chris a sex offender, he has to go to trial, and if he is found guilty, then he gets the label. Also, there is no way any American news network would publish an underage offender's name on the news until Chris was found guilty, because even the known ''possibility'' of being a sex offender [[ConvictedByPublicOpinion would be bad enough that the actual sentencing would be irrelevant by then]].
