* UnfinishedEpisode: An idea for a plot was proposed that Debbie would become skinny which resulted in Steve losing interest in her. Said idea ultimately never came to be likely due to one of the showrunners admitting that he thought the very idea of Debbie being seen as skinny would've felt like a betrayal to her character.

** The initial idea for what would be done with Hayley after she and Jeff conned Stan out of his $50,000 in "100 A.D." is that we would briefly check in on how they were spending the money in the episodes until her return in "There Will Be Bad Blood". Ultimately, this was scrapped to have them spending it all over the course of a single episode in "Son of Stan" in order to get away from Roger.

** Half the things Avery Bullock says are hilarious simply because they sound so bizarre coming out of Creator/PatrickStewart's mouth.[[note]]Picture Picard saying this to his crew and try to keep a straight face.

They'll be filcher rubs, breeders, hambones and tweeners, zobos and debos and blorps that go 'eenahs'. For a one dollar bill you can pull down their zippers.
