Notes & Trivia Edit

  • In each installment of the Family Guy Star Wars parodies, Meg Griffin is recast in the role of a hideous monster. In Blue Harvest, she was the dianoga. In Something, Something, Something, Dark Side, she was the giant space worm. In I'ts a Trap!, she's the Sarlacc. Each representation of Meg includes her trademark cap and eyeglasses.
  • During the Tatooine execution scene, a clip of Ted Knight's cantankerous character Judge Shmails from the 1980 comedy film Caddyshack is spliced into the scene. It's the clip from the end of the film when an exasperated Shmails tells Danny Noonan, "Well... we're waiting!"
  • The Evil Closet Monkey does not make an appearance in this episode.
