* 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 the episode)--to name a few things: Al Gore's the president, he killed Osama Bin Laden with his bare hands, and there are flying cars that run on vegetable oil. In fact, the only real "bad thing" about this future (at least in Peter and Brian's opinion) is that Creator/ChevyChase is the host of ''The Tonight Show'' instead of Jay Leno, but then things go FromBadToWorse when he and Brian find out that Quagmire has married Lois, and that Stewie, Chris, and Meg all look like him.

** There
are flying cars that run on vegetable oil. In fact, oil.
** People are much more health-conscious and there's Universal Free Healthcare, so people are living considerably longer.
** There's Zero Tolerance Gun Control and a much stronger/more well-funded educational system, so there's hardly any street crime.
*** Initially,
the only real "bad thing" about this the future (at least in Peter and Brian's opinion) is that Creator/ChevyChase is the host of ''The Tonight Show'' instead of Jay Leno, but then things go FromBadToWorse when he and Brian find out that Lois and Quagmire has got married Lois, in this timeline, and that Stewie, Chris, Meg, Chris and Meg Stewie all look like him.Quagmire (as well as Meg inheriting Quagmire's sexual appetite). But even then, as Brian points out to Peter, "[Peter] not marrying Lois was the best that ever could've happened to the world."

** Brian's line to young Lois on FOX was "Can I WHAM! my Oingo Boingo into your Velvet Underground?"; on DVD and Adult Swim, it was "I would eat your poo"[[note]]it's a common consensus that the edited line is the better one[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: In the final gag of the episode, Lois says she's thankful that everything is now back to normal... only for Roger from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' to enter the living room asking who ate all the pecan sandies.

* {{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.
