Family Guy

Trivia: The voices of Brian, Stewie and Peter (as well as other minor characters) are all voiced by the creator, Seth Macfarlane.

Trivia: A Quahog is another name for a clam, thus all the jokes and places in town (like the drunken clam bar) the show makes reference about.

He's Too Sexy for His Fat - S2-E17

Trivia: In the shot of the Quahog Pest Control building you see a blue termite (Nibbles Woodaway) on the building. New England Pest Control in Providence, Rhode Island has the same bug on top of its building.

Death Is a Bitch - S2-E6

Trivia: During the scene with Hitler's talk show, when Hitler starts to say the show's phone number and starts shouting in German, it translates into "You're going to need a nurse".

Grumpy Old Man - S10-E9

Trivia: One of the cutaway gags is about someone who survived 9/11 because he was late for work watching late night football. Seth MacFarlane missed his flight, which would have been one of the flights to crash into the World Trade Center, because his agent had given him the incorrect departure time. The plane was scheduled to depart at 7:45 AM and his agent had told him it was departing at 8:15 AM. By the time Seth arrived the boarding had been closed and he was told he would have to catch a later flight.

Death Is a Bitch - S2-E6

Trivia: When Stewie is riding his tricycle and knocks Lois down the stairs, it is similar to the Omen when Damien uses his tricycle to knock his mom down.

Fifteen Minutes of Shame - S2-E12

Trivia: When all the family have been replaced by actors in this episode, the actors are re-enacting the very first episode of Family Guy where Peter gets drunk and the family are eating their breakfast while Peter is lying on the table.

Kara

The King Is Dead - S2-E7

Trivia: When the Griffins are in the theater, in a few shots you can see the person sitting next to Meg. This is only interesting because he is killed by her in another episode.

Family Guy Viewer Mail #1 - S3-E21

Trivia: During the second act (Super Griffins), just as Mayor West says he's going to roll around in toxic waste, the crowd gives him a standing ovation. Watch the bottom center of the screen; a bald man in a grey shirt grabs the butt of the woman in a green dress next to him for no reason.

You May Now Kiss The...Uh...Guy Who Receives - S4-E25

Trivia: Adam West's enigmatic remark, "I'm the only Mayor West that's in trouble," was an oblique reference to the late Jim West, the Religious Right former mayor of Spokane, Washington and an ardent foe of gay marriage, until his career was ended by a gay sex scandal.

Baby Not On Board - S7-E4

Plot hole: Stewie gets out of the car seat and goes back to bed, leaving the blanket at the bottom of the seat. When they get to New York, Lois goes to get him out and realises he's gone. But when they started the trip the blanket was covering the entire seat to make it look like Stewie was still in it. So who ever "covered" him up knew he wasn't in the seat before they set off. (00:13:45)

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Peter Griffin: You better watch who you're calling a child Lois. Because if I'm a child then you know what that makes you? A paedophile, and I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and be lectured by a pervert.

Business Guy - S8-E9

Question: In the episode, Peter threatens to fire Lois, and she responds with "you wouldn't" and Peter then replies with "Oh really, does the name Lacey Chabert mean anything to you?" which in turn makes Lois go wide eyed and reply with "OK, I'll behave" and Peter then goes on to add "Yes you will" Can anyone explain this joke if it is a joke to comprehend?

Answer: Lacey Chabert was the actress who originally voiced Meg in early episodes. She left of her own accord due to being in school and other acting work; Seth MacFarlane has stated there was no tension with her leaving, but it makes for a handy joke for the show.
