* {{Bowdlerization}}: The following scenes were cut/edited when aired on FOX compared to the DVD and AdultSwim Creator/AdultSwim version:



** The parody of ''The Jetsons'' opening on the TV version (both FOX and AdultSwim) has George say, "Bull...crap" after Jane tries to explain that she's not going to take his wallet this time. On DVD, the line is "Bull...shit."
** During the dance on the FOX version, Lois asks what's poking her and Quagmire says, "It's just my wang." On AdultSwim and the DVD, he uses the more upfront word, "penis."

** It is mentioned that Osama bin Laden was hiding within the cast of ''Series/MadTV'', a jab at the show not being as prominent or popular as ''SaturdayNightLive''. The joke is [[HilariousInHindsight made funnier]] for two reasons: 1) ''Series/MadTV'' got canceled in 2009 due to low ratings and FOX cutting the budget on late-night TV shows (at least until they brought in Animation Domination High Def[[note]]which also got canceled, but has been revived on FXX and has become an online series[[/note]]) and 2) Osama bin Laden was found and killed two years after ''Series/MadTV'' ended.

* BadFuture: Subverted. While the changes in Peter's life are extreme, Brian sees that the alternate timeline is a paradise compared to ours (at the time); Al Gore is president, he killed Osama bin Laden with his bare hands, and there are flying cars that run on vegetable oil. The only "bad" thing about this future is that ChevyChase is the host of ''The Tonight Show''.

* ActorAllusion: The joke about Osama bin Laden being on ''Series/MadTV'' which is why no one can find him also references a little-known role Alex Borstein (the voice of Lois) had before ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' -- a cast member on ''MADtv''.
