Trivia: One of the best local jokes in the show is naming the Jr. High after the very notorious Providence mayor Buddy Cianci Jr., who is currently indicted and serving time.
Trivia: The joke about Harrison Ford being the only actor whose career wasn't destroyed by Star Wars reportedly offended Mark Hamill. After the trilogy's success, Hamill became famous as a voice actor, playing the Green Goblin on "Spider-Man" and, more prominently, the Joker on various animated "Batman" series.Cubs Fan
Trivia: Upon seeing Joe is handicapped, Peter exclaims "holy crip, he's a crapple." Such an error in speech, in which vowels or consonants in a word are switched around (i.e. He meant "holy crap, he's a cripple"), is called a spoonerism; somewhat appropriately, the Griffins and their neighbors live on Spooner Street.Cubs Fan
Trivia: As Peter conducts a tour of reporters around the school, they come upon a scene in the hallway. He introduces the Hall Monitor X-L-K. It requests a hall pass from a girl, fails to recognize the pass, makes a second request, fails to see the pass, and opens fire, chasing the girl back to class. This scene was borrowed from Robocop (1987) when ED-209 was introduced, and had the same type of malfunction.Movie Nut
