So I was watching a few episodes last night, one of which was the one where they need to move to Texas 'cos the locals think Stewie is the spawn of the devil, and got a huge reference to Sixteen Candles at the end.

I realised that there are quite a few in the shows, definately recall Transformers, Terminator, and Risky Business as well.

Any other fans recall others?

Not TECHICALLY a movie but I loved when Chris got pulled into an A-HA video at the supermarket.

They seem to like INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM quite a lot.

Isn't the whole show a series of 80's references? Seems to be the case whenever I watch it.

Saw this one, they re-enacted the scene in the museum when camerron was looking at the painting of the little girl with the ice cream. There was a few bars of music sounding a lot like dream academys version of please please please let me get what i want (gee thats a long title to type!)
My house mate and gf didnt get what i was laughing at, ignorant.

Watched another one last night and had an 80s LOL moment. The scene was the sign outside a building...
