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.
* CharlieAndTheChocolateParody: The first half. This is notable as one of the few ''Factory'' parodies that directly spoofs the songs from the 1971 film, rather than bringing in {{Suspiciously Similar Song}}s as substitutes.
* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The first half is a WholePlotReference to ''Film/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. Prior to the infamous Conway Twitty cutaways and the Peter vs. The Giant Chicken fights, this was considered an overly-long gag that started out funny, but got annoying really quick.
