West Virgina

West Virginia is a state in the Appalachian and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States, bordered by Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, Ohio to the northwest, and Pennsylvania and Maryland to the northeast. The capital and largest city is Charleston.

At the Langley 4th of July Festival in "American Dream Factory", Steve and the illegal Mexicans that Stan tries to hide from the INS sing John Denver's song "Take Me Home, Country Roads" - the only one they know in English about America they used to sing while dreaming of immigrating. After the song, the two throw all the Fourth of July bears the family made as free gifts into the audience, which causes such a mob to get them that the INS agents are temporarily unable to act as the Mexicans are smuggled away. Stan is willing to sacrifice his 'American Dream' to ensure theirs. The Smith family smuggles the large family to West Virginia, the subject of the song.
