In "Stuck Together, Torn Apart", Brian and Stewie find a little girl trapped in a well and Stewie looks down and quotes Buffalo Bill's repeated line: "He rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again."

In "Stew-Roids", Meg and Connie D'Amico embarrass Chris in front of the whole school by showing them a video of him parodying Buffalo Bill's naked dance to the song "Goodbye Horses" from the film.

In the DVD cut of "And Then There Were Fewer", Stewie asks Brian who the star of the film was and Brian replied: "Tony Hopkins"; thinking he knew Hopkins on a first name basis.

When Lois goes to Franz Gutentag's house looking for Peter and Chris in "German Guy", Franz says, "Is he a great big fat person?", a reference to The Silence of the Lambs.

Meg is kidnapped by Buffalo Bill in "Guy, Robot", but Peter's biggest concern is finding his grocery club card. Bill suggests he simply give them his phone number so they can look it up.
