** A later episode had Francine confess to Stan about having become a surrogate mother for a gay couple's child. Stan flipped out and came at her with a broken beer bottle. Then with a chainsaw. Then with a ferocious leopard. Then with [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs a ferocious leopard]] ''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs holding]]'' [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs a chainsaw.]] All this is then revealed to be Francine worrying what would happen if she told Stan the truth. And, since the world of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is so bizarre and Stan is so nuts, all of this actually seemed entirely possible until Francine woke up from her fantasy.

In reaction, Jim forfeits the contest by letting go of the car and punching Strickler to the ground in front of everybody. It then cuts back to the real world, Jim still touching the truck and the punch not having occurred in the first place.
