* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: A lot of things from the first season, including this episode, will feel really odd to people who are used to seeing the post-2005 revival episodes.

Also, most of the cutaways are flashbacks and "what-if" spots, rather than totally "random" {{CutawayGag}}s that add nothing to the plot. The characters act very differently, too:

** Chris sounds dopier and admires his father's drunken antics.
** Peter is a lovable BumblingDad trying to make things right, plus he works at a toy factory run by a flamboyantly gay man named Mr. Weed. Also, he actually tries to be a good father to Meg.
