Praise[edit]

Nicely done :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.72.21.221 (talk) 03:27, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Cell Phone[edit]

Does Peter buying a new phone reference to Brian Does Hollywood where he swallows his phone? EuroJordan 03:06, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Retort to South Park[edit]

How could the monkey sequence be a retort to "Cartoon Wars". Please Comment. 69.18.107.85 (talk) 06:48, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Does anyone know what they were parodying with the legs?[edit]

It was a parody of a educational game of some sort that I remember playing in kindergarten on the computer. I have no idea what the game was, though, but I want to put it in. Anyone remember the game? Halofan333 (talk) 01:19, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

I remember it[edit]

I remember the game. 71.10.88.69 (talk) 03:37, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Song number[edit]

Is that song they dance to, "Good Morning, Good Morning", an existing show tune, or was it written specifically for Family Guy?

"Good morning" is by Judy Garland and was written in 1939. As far as I can tell, the part Stewie was singing was ad-libbed, as the original hasn't got the word Louisiana in it at all. - NemFX (talk) 05:44, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Inspiration for episode title[edit]

I was just listening to a song which I think might be the inspiration for this episode's title. It's the theme from "The Greatest American Hero", by Joey Scarbury. It prominently features the line, "Believe it or not, I'm walking on air". Sources please. --SpyHunter29 (talk) 16:11, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Is the Hitler image really relevant?[edit]

Yes, there is a joke in the episode involving Hitler, but it hardly seems notable enough to warrant a picture of Hitler accompanying the Cultural References Section.129.10.188.176 (talk) 02:19, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

It's a free image used to illustrate something. Doesn't violate any issue and adds to the article. Good enough for me.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 19:11, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Infobox: Production code cite?
  • Lede: Change 'season 5' to 'season five' or 'the fifth season'
  • Plot: "When Peter, Cleveland, Joe and Quagmire are at the Drunken Clam, when Lois, Bernice (Cleveland's first girlfriend since his divorce with Loretta) and Bonnie show up at the bar…" This sentence makes no sense grammatically. It starts with an independent clause with 'when', then segues into another 'when' clause. Please fix this.
  • Plot: "…rid of the shed." Is the shed the bar? Explain this better, please.
  • Plot: "Many people start to show up at the Quahog's Men's Club and Lois and her friends start to get annoyed by Peter and his friends being loud in the shed, so they upset them by going in there." -> "Many people start to show up at the Quahog's Men's Club and Lois and her friends start to get annoyed. In order to get back at them, they enter the club."
  • Plot: "he'll" -> "he will" Watch contractions
  • Production: Put quotation marks around 'The Juice is Loose'
  • Production: The last sentence of the last paragraph needs a citation
  • Cultural Refs: Put quotation marks around 'Good Morning'
  • Reception: Explain what a Nielsen rating is (like you did on the others). This section needs to be cleaned up quite a bit. For he casual reader, what does (4.9/7) mean? Also, don't use the '#' sign, say 'number'
  • Reception: Italicize AV Club
  • Ref 6 should use en-dashes (–) instead of dashes (-)
  • There is a double parenthesis in Ref 4
  • References: Ref 1 and 3's publishers should be Yahoo! TV
  • References: Cut the 'Yahoo! TV' part of the title out of Refs 1 and 3
  • References: Italicize The AV Club
  • Categories: Alphabetize these

That's all. Sorry about the half-month delay. Real-life got in the way. On hold for seven days.--Gen. Quon (Talk) 19:11, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

I believe I've fixed all your concerns. Although the "Cut the 'Yahoo! TV' part of the title out of Refs 1 and 3" confused me. Pedro J. the rookie 20:50, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
