** In the same movie, another song sneaks in a reference to circumcision. Specifically, a baby girl bemoans the loss of her umbilical cord, to which a baby boy responds by looking in his diaper and telling her to consider herself lucky.

** Remember the scene when the cast finally land in Paris and they are in the airport ready to board the bus to Euro Reptar? The scene where Angelica says the "beautifulest most smartest one gets to go first"? Listen to the music in the background. It's quite faint, but a good ear can make it out. The song is called "L'histoire d'une fée c'est" or "The Story of the Fairy is" in English, sung by popular French singer MyleneFarmer. Following the movie's premise of Chuckie wishing for a new mother, the singer Mylène plays the role of a ChaoticNeutral fairy named Melusinè, who promises to grant this wish if he promises to "believe in her". It comes off as pretty innocent unless you try slurring a part of the title. "Fèe", meaning "fairy" or "fae" in French and "c'est" meaning "is", when slurred into one word may sound like "fessée", which means "spanking" or even "ass". What doesn't help is several lines in the song, when translated to English, can come off as very sexual depending on how deep in the gutter your mind is, with lines like "when I'm wanted, I appear", "be careful with my wings" and "I'm not into latex". EverythingsSexierInFrench indeed! The worst part? The image released as the single's box art was a picture of Chuckie, asleep in his bed holding his bear Wawa, with fairy Mylène sitting over his bed NAKED, spying on him sleeping!

* The episode entitled "Cradle Attraction" (a play on the title of the thriller, ''Fatal Attraction'') is clearly a metaphor for a couple and their love life (or, to get even creepier, a SADOMASOCHISTIC couple's love-life). Chuckie and Megan discover that they love being mean to each other, and throughout the episode, that's how they show affection towards one another. Near the end of the episode, Chuckie goes to find Megan and "put a worm in her hair," but can't figure out where she went. He walks up behind her, and sees her poking another boy with a tree branch (which is how she first showed that she likes Chuckie). Chuckie is appalled and runs away, screaming "Megan, how could you?!" while Megan shouts "Wait, it's not what it looks like!"

* In one episode, Stu is showing the family his slideshow from his vacation. In response, Tommy's maternal grandfather/Stu's father-in-law Boris makes a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLgOoV3xomY phone call]] to [[MercyKill Dr. Kevorkian]], a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kevorkian reference to the doctor famous for assisting patient suicides]].



* "The Blizzard" had the babies traveling to the North Pole to have Santa fix Chuckie's toy bus. When they reach what they think is the Pole, Angelica starts to complain about how they couldn't find "No toy factory, no funny elves, not even a lame old reindeer turd!"
** Similarly, in "Circus Angelicus" after Chuckie and the other babies are crying over the clowns and they start to leave with their parents, you can see in the background that an elephant does a number two.



** There is a scene where Angelica is singing karaoke with a sumo trio at a sushi restaurant. The song? "Bad Girls" by Music/DonnaSummer. Of course, it's not the original version, but her own version replacing the original lyrics with ones regarding her status as an AlphaBitch by bossing the babies around and stealing their sweets. What's the original song about? Prostitution.



** In the same episode, since a conservative elderly client is visiting, Charlotte instructs Jonathan to take out the hideous NormanRockwell painting they keep in the closet to replace the Mapplethorpe. For those who don't know who Mapplethorpe is, use caution when Googling him.
** TheOtherWiki is much safer to find out.
* In "The Pirate Light," Stu steps into the shower singing "Yankee Doodle went to town, riding on a pony; stuck his finger da da da..." This is a thinly veiled allusion to the parodies of the song "Yankee Doodle" which go "stuck his finger up his butt" instead of "stuck a feather in his cap."
** Sound more like "Stuck his finger in an..."

* In the episode The Odd Couple, Stu calls Chaz to ask him to watch Tommy. Chaz tells Stu he has to go, he's paying two dollars a minute on the other line. Stu says something inaudible, to which Chaz, somewhat defensively, remarks "No, Stu, I'm on the Crossword Hotline!" I wonder what Stu thought he was doing...

* In the special, "Acorn Nuts and Diapey Butts", Betty tries to set up Chaz with another one of her single friends and mentions that one of her qualities is that she had earned the nickname "The Spanker", all while suggestive music plays in the background.
