After Peter wins a chance to visit the Pawtucket Brewery (and gets banned for trying an experimental beer), he gets drunker than usual, which turns him into a piano virtuoso (or, as Lois says, "You're like that idiot from ''Shine''!"), and Lois does whatever she can to get her husband as wasted as possible in time for a piano competition.
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The first half is a WholePlotReference to ''WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'', but after he breaks the rules, the episode focuses more on the whole piano contest plot.
* OverlyLongGag: Peter's breathing when he gets hit in the knee. Before the infamous Conway Twitty cutaways, this was considered the most annoying overly-long gag on ''FamilyGuy''.
