** For the Timer cutaway in "Petarded", the staff wanted Lennie Weinrib, the original voice of Timer to reprise his role. However, his agent said he was too old to do it and and Timer ended up being voiced by Seth [=MacFarlane=] (whose vocal impression is on-point, but still, how cool would have been to have Lennie Weinrib come back as Timer for ''Family Guy'' [a show that caters to [[DeconstructiveParody breaking down nostalgic figures from the 1970s and 1980s for fun]]]?).

Since then three jokes were made about this: in "Business Guy," Peter threatens to replace Lois, adding, "Does the name 'Lacey Chabert' mean anything to you?"; "Back to the Pilot" had Stewie state that Meg [as voiced by Chabert on the pilot episode "Death Has a Shadow"] sounds like "...someone who missed out on an opportunity.", and the 200th episode "Yug Ylimaf" had Stewie screaming "You're Lacey Chabert" after Meg spoke, as the reverse flow of time landed him on the day he was born.
