Trivia

The title is based on a line from the 1861 poem "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow about the call to arms going throughout the Boston countryside as the British marched on Concord. One lantern was to be hung in the tower of the Old North Church if the British came by land and two if they crossed the Charles River. "One if by land, and two if by sea; And I on the opposite shore will be, Ready to ride and spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the country folk to be up and to arm."

Cleveland: The only British idiom I know is that fag means cigarette.
Peter Griffin: Then would someone tell this cigarette to shut up!

bad stereo-type American dribble of British
14 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i love family guy but i always get annoyed with this episode as the portrait of British people is probably the furthest thing from what we are like in real life, i get it is a cartoon and fictional but most Americans must think all of us talk with a posh accent i.e. sound like hugh grant, in fact only very small amount of people in UK talk like this and most other British people hate the posh sounding accent, also British pubs are nothing like this in fact most British pubs are more like the clam was originally.

the vast majority of the British population are working class people more like the griffin family, its not just this episode of family guy though allot of American shows don't represent very good British portrayals but never mind. Some funny moments in the episode just bad stereo-typical characters.
