Trivia

At the end after the story, Peter says "We got time for another story, it's called Without a Paddle (2004)" and Chris says "F**k you, dad!". This is because Seth Green (the man who does the voice for Chris) was in Without a Paddle (2004). See more »

Yoda says a "guy" flashes at the end of teen wolf. It was actually a woman not a guy, and she doesn't actually flash at all. See more »

Quotes

Stewie Griffin as Darth Vader: Captain Piett, you're in charge now. Don't fail me, Admiral Piett.
Admiral Piett: A promotion? Really? Can I get business cards that say "Admiral"?
Stewie Griffin as Darth Vader: That's not in the budget. You know, we're trying to catch Rebels here. I don't even have business cards. None of us do. Do you have business cards?
Stormtrooper: Yeah.

EXCELLENT....Much Much better than the first Star Wars Episode.
21 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I actually downloaded this a few weeks ago, but just now watched it. It is MUCH MUCH more better and funnier than the first Star Wars episode. Without giving any of it away or spoiling it for anyone, I just wanted to say that every character that's in the regular Family Guy series has some part in this episode. Whether it's for the whole entire episode, or just a few seconds.

Plus a few cameo appearances.

It seems as though much thought was put into writing this episode. The last few Family Guy shows, in my opinion, seemed to be just "thrown out there", without a care so to say.
