Brian notes that Shredder used to drink a lot and try constantly to get laid, saying it was hard to connect with someone like that. Stewie agrees, subtlety joking how everything Brian said about Shredder accurately applied to himself.
Stewie mentions a relocation of Seinfeld to Chicago, following a trend of several shows being located in that city that was noted over the previous few years.
When Jerry asks about the south side, he stops Kramer from interjecting. Michael Richards, the actor who plays Kramer, was filmed making a racist rant during a comedy show. The south side of Chicago is known as 'Bronzeville' for its large African-American population.
Brian crosses author Charles Dickens for his character of his book, David Copperfield.
