I might be on my Pat Malone here, but I thought this episode was probably the best since the Stewie killed Lois eps. I enjoyed the Back to the Future and Indiana Jones sequences. And I still maintain that jumping out of a plane in a raft and surviving is just as silly as surviving a nuke blast in a lead lined fridge. Also liked the Loony Tunes Am I looking in a mirror or is it someone else bit with Hitler. I thought the anti republican sentiment was a bit heavy handed, or at best, utilised overplayed jokes. Adding a footnote, my Grandfather was a Lancaster bomber crewman.

Any other comments?

Of all the good gags in this episode, it was the Terrance Trent D'Arby radar joke that really cracked me up.

Ah, the mirror gag (youtube.com) goes back at least to 1933 & the Marx Brothers in Duck Soup (en.wikipedia.org). And they stole it crom Charlie Chaplin. There have been many homages to it since, including in Looney Tunes.

Overall, I liked the episode, although there were a few too many random little things. For examples, the flying Vikings & the Mean Joe Green bits were awkward. (And, yes, I do realise I'm saying that in the context of Family Guy, which is all about random odd bits.)

I did love Mort interrupting them from the jaunty song & dance number.

That was actually really funny without overdoing the manatee gags, holy crap.

I thought this episode was great as well but I didn't catch the flying viking reference. What's that from?

Mort asking for a scale to weigh himself before and after cracked me up pretty hard.

I thought it was great. The German invasion of Poland along with the Jewish wedding song was probably the best emotional animation done by the series. I do love the McCain/Palin button and the Flash Gordon Valkeries.

Mythbusters proved you could actually do the Indiana Jones jumping out of a raft trick. Indy stunts usually pass the mustard on the show which probably erks the hell out of them.

Thanks, now I have a big goofy grin on my face and I'm wondering why we don't already own that on DVD. I love that movie!

YES!!! That was awesome. I have been humming that song for the last few days.

The more I reflect on this episode, the more I liked it. In addition to the Flash Gordon bit, (looked like they borrowed Stan's chin!), I also got a great laugh from the tremendous pile of cop cars by the submarine.

I liked the European see-n-say. The Flash Gordon reference was also great.

Maybe I'm too sensitive, but the McCain/Palin/Nazi joke was just stupid. George Bush...yeah,OK I can see the joke there. But John McCain? I man who fought FOR this country and proved to be quite the hero. Dumb.



I had just bent down to tighten my nuts, and there was a double yellow line, see? And next thing I knew, there was policeman behind me. He put a sticker on my helmet and tried to clamp me.

Wow there were a lot of pop culture references crammed in.
I got all of them except the Flash Gordon one.

Yeah parts were offensive, but if you go into Family Guy expecting not to be offended by something you are out of luck.

The second the music hit, I was laughing out loud at the Breakfast Club nod. Also loved how Jeff woke up with the Pizza Guy's shirt on. This show is getting more brilliant each week.
