    This is probably my favorite American Dad episode. The episode is about Stan taking Haley to an amusement park to make her not hate him, but the normal amusement park turned into a gun theme park. I also thought the sub-plot was funny where Roger gets revenge on Steve just because he ate his cookie. This is the kind of episodes that are more funny with repeated viewings. Mainly because of the jokes that might be missed the first time. This is the episode I would recommend for someone that wants to get into this show.moreless

Back home, Roger schemes to get revenge on Steve for eating one of his cookies by convincing him that he's adopted. I thought this was a great episode. Not perfect though since it did had dragged parts, but that's my only complaint for the episode. The main plot was great, but not my favorite. Some of the parts were interesting, while there were a few that made me laugh. Steve/Roger plot was funniest because Roger want to get revenge on Steve by making him think that he's adopted. LOL, I laughed at almost everything in that plot. Overall, a superb episode. 9/10moreless

    Stan and his daughter have a big fight about gun control that threatens to set them apart from each other forever. After Steve makes Roger mad, Roger schemes to get Steve to believe he was adopted. Will his plan work? Will Steve learn not to mess with Roger?



    Good episode, I really liked Steve and roger's plot, and I liked the ending which implied Roger would try to do something to Haley. The main plot was not great but the sub plot, for the most part, made up for it, and as such my final grade is a B+/A- or so, I think is fair.moreless
  • A Classic Season 1 episode.

    Another favorite for me and it has hillarious parts like when Stan and his gun buddies are saying their pledge and they say we will always help someone in need and then Terry screams someone broke in my car and Stan and his gun buddies say shutup. Also I cracked up when Steve thought he was adopted and he made out with Haley and Roger said okay everything from now on is just gravy. It was extremely funny when at the very end when Roger said to Haley that was my chair and Haley says early bird gets the worm and Roger says thats right enjoy the chair enjoy it. Overall a top 10 episode for me.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • The sign at the Jamboree reads:
      NGA Kids Jamboree
      Featuring Haley & Papa Wheelie

    • When Hayley throws the guitar into a slime lake at NGA Land, only the two NGA Directors get covered in it, even though Stan was standing right next to them and should've gotten covered in it, too.

    • At the beginning of the episode, before Hayley reveals that she's handcuffed to the oven, Francine is on Hayley's left side. Afterwards, she's to her right.

  • QUOTES (22)

    • Francine: Look at you two. Who would've thought guns would bring you so close together?
      Stan: I know. If only we could get some guns to the Middle East.

    • Hayley: But you were paralyzed by a gun.
      Stan: No, I was paralyzed by you. Look, I'm not going to point fingers here, because I can't. Because of you.

    • Stan: Hey, don't worry about me. I'm still your same old dad. What's that sound? Oh, I'm peeing. Fantastic!

    • Hayley: (Hears laughter) What the hell! That's the burglar! Dad staged the whole thing!
      Francine: Yeah, I get it, Hayley. I'm unrape-able, not stupid.

    • Hayley: I'm such a hypocrite!
      Francine: Honey, he was robbing us. And he was gonna force himself on me.
      Hayley: He said that?
      Francine: Well, no, but I assume.
      (Hayley glares)
      Francine: What? You think I'm not attractive enough? That-That what? That he's just skip me and go straight to you? Well, aren't we conceited?

    • (Gunshot is heard)
      Hayley: I... I shot him.
      Stan: Murderer! Just kidding. You saved the family, kiddo. Pizza? Let's order pizza.

    • Stan: Look, the NGA is the only thing in my life that means anything to me.
      Francine: (Coughing) Ahem.
      Stan: What, are you getting sick? Don't come near me! I can't afford to get sick!

    • Hayley: NGA Land? A gun park?!
      Stan: Yeah, Sugar Mountain closed down years ago. This is basically the same thing, except instead of riding a choo-choo through Fairy Book Land, you'll ride a bullet through a mugger's chest.

    • Francine: The point is, there was a time when you two weren't always fighting.
      Hayley: That was before I knew Dad was a gun-toting maniac.
      Stan: Beatnik!
      Hayley: Warmonger!
      Stan: Chupacabra!
      Hayley: I'm the Mexican Bigfoot?
      Stan: You heard her! She admitted it!

    • Stan: See? Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Guns defend people against people with smaller guns.
      Hayley: You're such a fascist!
      Stan: Peace pusher!
      Hayley: Murderer!
      Stan: Hermaphrodite!

    • Terry: (On TV) Our top story, a car was broken into Cherry Street this afternoon. My car. The suspect was six-foot two and a bastard!

    • Stan: Before we adjourn, let's recite the NGA Oath. Hold hands. Come on, it's not gay, there's guns in the room.

    • Roger: What the... Hey, that was my cookie!
      Steve: You snooze, you lose.
      Roger: "You snooze, you lose," huh? Hmm, okay. Eat up. (Narrows eyes) Eat... up.

    • Francine: Oh, sweetheart, don't be so dramatic. Besides, aren't you having fun cooking with mommy?
      Hayley: I'm not "cooking with mommy." Dad handcuffed me to the oven.

    • Roger: Did you save me a cookie?
      Francine: You bet I did. Last one.
      Roger: Oh, cookie, you look so good. Shh, shh, don't speak. I'll go get some milk for your bath.

    • Stan: Hey, son.
      Steve: Don't "son" me, baby-snatcher! (Knocks bookshelf on Stan)
      Stan: (Feels nothing due to being paraplegic) Somethin' on your mind, champ?
      Hayley: Steve, what are you doing?!
      Steve: Something we've both wanted to do for years, "sis." (Brings his sister into a passionate tongue-kiss, much to her dismay)
      Roger: (To a dazed Hayley) Oh, my God! Everything that happens from this point on is just gravy!

    • Roger: Hey, you're in my seat.
      Hayley: Sorry. Early bird gets the worm.
      Roger: "Early bird gets the worm," huh? Huh. Enjoy the seat. (Close-up to him narrowing his eyes) Enjoy... the seat.

    • Stan: (After getting shot) Hayley... tell Roger... he's annoying. (Collapses)

    • Hayley: Look, Dad, now that you can't work at the CIA, have you given any thought to what you want to do with your life?
      Stan: I sure have. I want to make a difference. I want to be an activist.
      Hayley: Really?! Oh, that's great, Dad! (Hugs him)
      Stan: Thanks, honey. Come on over here and give your dad a hug. (Briefly surprised, Hayley steps in front of Stan and gives him another hug)

    • Steve: These people aren't rich. Look at their house. It's a box!

    • Stan: (About the ride) You come out the exit wound! Whee!

    • Klaus: (After Francine smashes a wine bottle) Ugh, that's the worst thing to happen to wine since the movie "Sideways." (Looks to the camera) That's right, America. Come get me!

  • NOTES (14)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Stan: (After he fires the gun above) Guns don't kill people, people kill people!
      Exact lines from the (2000) film, Romeo Must Die. DMX fires the gun above and says, "Guns don't kill people, people kill people!"
