Trivia: When Wayne plays "Stairway To Heaven" in the music shop, he is then stopped and says "No stairway". The filmmakers actually tried to get the song played in the movie but were denied, so this is just a little nudge at them in this scene. I think Mike Myers mentions this on the commentary on the DVD.

Question: Can anyone explain to me the scene in which Wayne is pulled over by a cop and shown a picture? I know it's supposed to be funny, but I don't get the joke.

Answer: You presumably haven't seen Terminator 2. The actor playing the cop is Robert Patrick, who played the shape-shifting T-1000 in that movie, who masqueraded as a policeman for most of the film. The T-1000's mission was to track down and terminate a boy - hence the "have you seen this boy" line that he says to Wayne.
