Later on, this shoulder angel finally arrives and is asked by Peter for advice. The shoulder angel's even smaller shoulder devil then appears, but the tiny shoulder angel isn't there because, you guessed it, he's stuck in traffic.

** Brian is not obsessed with politics; he has the purest form of a low-key, sophisticated personality that is intended as a joke towards how, in a family of idiots, the ''dog'' is the smartest of them all. Furthermore, the human family member with whom Brian has the strongest friendship is Peter, not Stewie.

* 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. The jokes are not totally tasteless, but they are still better suited to AdultSwim than to CartoonNetwork. Most of the cutaways are flashbacks and WhatIf spots, rather than totally "random" gags that add nothing to the plot. The characters act very differently, too:
