Did You Know?


The entire premise of this episode involves Steve & Roger trying to make Stan cry because Steve has never seen it happen. This contradicts the Season 1 Episode 5 "Roger Codger" in which Stan cries in front of the whole family when about to shoot Roger, even stating "What's this? Some kind of tear like substance coming from my eyes" to which Steve responds "He's crying!" See more »


Steve: Wait a second, that's it! I can sign up for the footballs team! Dad loves sports! I bet he'd love to watch me play!
Roger Smith: Steve, look at those kids. They're athletes. When was the last time you ran anywhere? I mean with your own legs, not by pressing 'X'?
