    It's from the 1979 Summer camp movie Meatballs.

    I'm guessing it's a jab at being abnormal. I've heard people making fun of this thing before on other television shows.

    The song is "I'm Free" by Kenny Loggins. I don't what the reference is aimed at. I kind of figured it might be Footloose or something (haven't seen the movie in decades).

    Seth Mcfarlane says it's reference to 80's movie crap.

    I just know that the bit in "Road to the Multiverse" where Meg struts down the street is taken from something. Any ideas?

    Family Guy relies on a lot of current stuff too, with a lot of 90's movies. That's Robot Chicken you're thinking of, my friend.

    But there's no real punchline. The scene just sort of ends suddenly.

    Thought I would bump this thread, but here's another Family Guy joke I don't get from a Season 3 episode during a cutaway to Peter and Lois' wedding: "Milk, milk, lemonade, around the corner fudge is made!"

    It has to do with the human body, and that's all I'm going to say about it.

    That's just random. Something the manatees thought was funny at the time, I guess.

    How about from a circa 2001 Family Guy episode:

    Peter checks his e-mail on his internet computer...

    PETER: "Oh boy, I got an e-mail from Mr. Pewterschmidt!"

    ...then a fist comes out of the computer screen and punches/hits Peter.

    I think he's talking about how is that actually possible that he was able to punch Peter through the computer. That's just one of those "cartoon gags that can't be explained but are funny anyway". Bonus Stage and Ed Edd n Eddy have done similar gags as well just for the "lulz".

    ah I should have included that part pff. Some people just expect a lot of FM jokes to be referenced, when many are specific toward the show and are just random.

    Planes, Trains and Automobiles
    The devil reference is around 33 secs time

    "Look, Chris, it's a family of wasps."

    This many years and I still don't get it. Could be a reference to a series, but...jeez it's really that obscure.

    WASPs refers to White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. It's use to called people of elite background, social status, and presumed power that they hold. They're mostly upper class, practice the Protestant religion, are well-educated, and usually comes from the background of English, Scottish, or Welsh descent.

    How about this as Brian and Stewie play Yahtzee:

    STEWIE: "Yahtzee!"
    BRIAN: "Yay!" (or is it "Gay!"?)
    STEWIE: "YOU SUCK!"

    It makes fun of people who would actually shout "Yahtzee!" when winning the game.
