!!This episode contains examples of:

* AbusiveParents: How Music/BingCrosby is portrayed.
--> '''Bing Crosby''': And if your kids give you any lip, you can beat 'em with a sack of sweet Valencia oranges. They won't leave a bruise, and they'll let 'em know who's boss. There's ''no'' doubt about it.
* AdamWesting: The cast of ''Series/MurphyBrown'' appear to poke fun at their old show.
* DealWithTheDevil: Peter would sell his soul to be famous. Satan is about to close the deal, until he's informed that he ''already'' sold his soul in 1976 for Bee Gees tickets, and ''again'' in 1981 for half a Mallomar.
* EvilLawyerJoke: In response to the above item, Satan says he needs a lawyer to sort it out. The featured condemned sinners immediately raise their hands.
* FantasticRacism: Meg's bird calls end up seriously offending some pigeons. And [[Series/SesameStreet Big Bird]].
* IncrediblyLongNote: Peter holds the last word of his song about Meg ("MEEEEEEE!") ''through the commercial break'' and is still holding it at the start of the next act. This joke is ruined a bit on Adult Swim airings, since they put the commercial breaks in a different place.
* {{Jerkass}}: A flashback shows Peter making fun of a kid for crying. Said kid is grieving over his dead mother at her grave.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: A bull was in a china shop looking at a vase when Peter's runaway golf ball crashed through the window and caused a DisasterDominoes effect that destroyed all the shop's china. The store owner then comes out of his office and sees the bull surrounded by the shattered merchandise.
-->'''Bull''': I know what you're thinking.
* TheOtherDarrin: InUniverse. TheTeaser features a joke of Carter Banks filling in for Brian. He does horribly.
* PaperPeople: How Kate Moss is portrayed.
* SameSurnameMeansRelated: A brief cutaway reveals that Creator/KathyGriffin was a distant cousin of the show's Griffin family.
* ShoutOut: At one point while walking down the streets of New York, the scenery behind Peter and Meg switches to backdrops reminiscent of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''.
* StageMom: Peter pushes Chris to succeed as an artist because of this.
-->'''Peter''': Lois, our son has been blessed with a great gift, and I'm gonna do everything I can to nurture that talent and help him succeed. And I'm gonna use him to live out all my frustrated hopes and dreams, because that's good parenting.
* TakeThat: To the dialogue on ''Series/MurphyBrown''.
