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.

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 »

Quotes

Peter Griffin: [singing] Nothing else has worked so far/So I'll wish upon a star/Wondrous, dancing speck of light/I need a Jew/Lois makes me take the rap/'Cause our checkbook looks like crap/Since I can't give her a slap/I need a Jew/Where to find/A Baum or Steen or Stein/To teach me how to whine and do my taxes?

Alternate Versions

Some syndicated airings cut short the infamous "Quagmire reaching for his keys" scene. Also, all TV airings change the line "even though they killed our Lord" to the less-offensive "I don't think they killed our Lord" during the I Need a Jew song. See more »
