!! Tropes associated with this episode

* ContinuityNod: Brian throws a rock at Peter for rolling up the window when he tried to jump into the General Lee in "To Love And Die in Dixie."
** WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally it was going to be because Brian was in a carrier cage on a plane to meet Patrick and Peter pissed on him.
* DeletedScene: The DVD includes an extra scene where Peter and his fat advocacy group sing at the funeral of one of the Fat Guy Strangler's victims.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Peter is a {{jerkass}}, but he had no way of knowing that Patrick was traumatized over Jackie Gleason. Quickly just turns into a full blown {{jerkass}} since Peter does it again right after Patrick has been stopped.
* OnlySaneMan: Brian realizes straight away that Patrick is the Fat Guy Strangler and tells Lois that it's pretty clear it's him. Lois however is in full blown denial.
* ShoutOut: To:
** ''TheHoneymooners'': The Jackie Gleason look-alike (and later, Peter) impersonating the show's signature character and mannerisms, including "Pow! Right in the kisser!"
** BillyJoel: The "caveman who invented singing" performs Joel's 1984 hit "The Longest Time," a cappella style.
* {{Trigger}}: Peter's insensitive impersonation of Ralph Kramden (from ''TheHoneymooners'') triggers Patrick's trauma of seeing his mother and a Jackie Gleason lookalike having an affair ... and sets off his homicidal rage against overweight people.
