Perhaps it's just me, but I've noticed that both of these relationships have changed over the last few seasons. Brian used to be a fatherly figure to Stewie, and Stewie gave Brian guidance during his various mishaps, but I don't think they are the same much at all now. It almost seems like Brian hangs out with Stewie because he has no friends outside of the house, and neither does Stewie. And Brian doesn't seem to be as fatherly towards Stewie anymore...actually, Stewie tends to be that way towards Brian. It just seems like they aren't as funloving anymore and never do anything outside of the house.Roger and Steve are quite different. They are quite funloving andwhen they do fight, it doesn't seem bloodthirsty like it doeswith FG. They also have lives outside of the house and are not always involved with each other's plots, whereas Brian and Stewie are involved in each other's stories (or share one) 99% of the time. Roger and Steve seem to have gotten closer over the seasons and are even funnier than they used to be. What are everyone else's thoughts on this?
