Special Sub-Topic: Black Mystery Month
|Who is feeding Klaus in the first scene in the dining room?|
Hayley. Roger, Steve, and Francine are having a conversation by the dinner table. Hayley can be seen in the background pouring some food in Klaus' bowl at the beginning of the scene.
|What is Steve's favorite object in the solar system?|
Io. Francine is making a peanut butter sandwich, which leads Steve to say peanut butter is his favorite thing in the world. He then says if it weren't for Io, peanut butter would be his favorite thing in the solar system.
|What will kill Francine if Steve doesn't brush his teeth?|
goblins. Stan: "I guess I'm gonna have to start treating you like an adult."
(Stan starts to walk out of Steve's room and stops at the doorway.)
Stan: "Now don't forget to brush your teeth or goblins will kill your mother."
|Where is the monocle located?|
clock. After being left for dead, the peanut butter museum's curator uses his blood to write a slightly naughty message that is an anagram for "find the monocle." This leads Steve to the clock in the curator's office, which uses the monocle as a pendulum.
|What game do Hayley and Roger play?|
Jenga. Roger wants to play Jenga with someone, but Hayley will only play if they gamble to make it interesting. Roger gets very competitive, even bringing in an engineer and building a test model to make sure he has every possible advantage.
|Who really invented peanut butter (at least as far as the episode's plot is concerned?|
Mary Todd Lincoln. Steve learns of a conspiracy to give an African American credit for inventing peanut butter to heal the nation after the Civil War. Mary Todd Lincoln invented peanut butter as a way to ward off evil spirits. When Abraham Lincoln finds out how delicious it is, he believes that if an African American is given credit for the invention, even hardcore Southerners would rejoin the nation willingly. John Wilkes Booth ended up killing Lincoln to prevent this from happening. Later on, Grover Cleveland leaves a jar of peanut butter on George Washington Carver's doorstep to give him credit (after reviving the plan).
|Where do Steve and Stan go to read the map?|
Burger King. After reading the map, Steve asks why they had to come to Burger King to read the map. Stan mentions that it is because animation is a costly process, turns to the camera, and says, "Have it your way."
|Who finally wins the game Hayley and Roger play?|
we never find out. After thinking all night, Roger finally makes a move. He hypocritically yells at Hayley for thinking too long after only a couple of seconds. This is where the episode ends the B-story (without revealing a winner).
|Who wants to stop Steve from getting away with the "jar of proof?"|
Jimmy Carter. The jar consists of a list of possible names for peanut butter considered by Abraham Lincoln, written on the playbill from the play where Lincoln was assassinated and splattered with Lincoln's blood. As the second ever "President Peanut" (with Lincoln being the first), Jimmy Carter does not want this to happen. He is the leader of a secret society called the "Illuminutty" that thinks if the conspiracy were ever made public, the country would be torn apart.
|What makes Steve exclaim that it has been the best Black History Month ever?|
porn. After the list of names is destroyed in the magma underneath Washington D.C., Stan and Steve want to find a place where they can make any claim they want without proof (to reveal the conspiracy) and have people believe them anyway. The scene cuts to Steve's bedroom, where he is typing it on Wikipedia. Stan says that he has removed the blocks from the Internet because Steve has shown he is old enough to handle anything the Internet has to offer, even porn. Steve then exclaims, "Wow, porn. This is the best Black History Month ever!"
