Storyline

After hearing about the good jobs his friends' lawyers and accountants are doing, Peter becomes fixated on the idea of Jews as mathematical and legal geniuses. Hoping to give Chris a chance for a better future than he can provide as a Catholic, Peter decides to have his son convert to Judaism at a quickie Las Vegas Bar Mitzvah in order to turn him smart.

Trivia

Due to a controversy over its subject matter, this episode, a Jewish Hannukah special, was originally produced for season 2 (as production episode 2.5) to be broadcast in December 2000, but wasn't broadcast until November 2003, almost 2 years after the show's cancellation.

(Since the show wasn't picked up again until early 2005, this episode (commonly listed as 3.22), should ideally be in a season by itself as episode 4.1, and season 4 and on should really be season 5 and on.)

Similarly, a Christmas special, also considered controversial, was made for around the same time (production episode 2.3), to be broadcast in season 2 around Xmas 2000, but was not actually broadcast until season 3 just before Xmas 2001 (as episode 3.16). See more »

Goofs

Upon the arrival in Las Vegas, the MGM Grand and Luxor (pyramid) hotel/casino are shown to be on the same side of the road and relatively close to one another. In actuality these hotel/casinos are on opposite sides of the street from one another, and even then there is a major intersection between them. See more »
