General note: The "FOX viewing position", where the family holds various pieces of metal and tin foil around the living room, refers to the fact that in the early days, and in some cases still today, FOX affiliates were lower-powered obscure UHF stations. Note to Non-Americans: The program of American TV networks is broadcasted by local TV stations (hence the word "network") who usually aren't owned by the networks. Peggy & Al have sex.

Influences: The morphing sequence and its music was influenced by the Michael Jackson video clip for the song "Black and White". The episode title was influenced by the movie "How Green Was My Valley". The line "don't hate me because I'm beautiful" is from Pantene shampoo commercials with Kelly LeBrock.
