    When Stan gets kidnapped in Colombia, Francine fears he's gone for good. Stan finally reappears unharmed, but the real trouble erupts in the Smith household when he admits that he has a plan to marry his dentist if Francine dies before him. Meanwhile, Steve and Roger play detective duo "Wheels and the Legman. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "American Dad". It was very funny and I really loved the storyline. Although, the subplot with Steve and Roger playing a duo for "Wheels and the Legman" was tad more better and funnier than the main plot but I still thought the main plot was hilarious and I just really impressed with them. The humor is kinda hard to describe so I won't get into the humor too much but there were just so many parts that really made me laugh. I also thought the ending of the episode was funny as well. Overall, an excellent episode of "American Dad" with many hilarious moments and a well executed storyline and subplot. 10/10moreless

Stan finally reappears unharmed, but the real trouble erupts in the Smith household when he admits that he has a plan to marry his dentist if Francine dies before him. Meanwhile, Steve and Roger play the detective duo "Wheels and the Legman." Then Francine gets a backup husband who happens to be Stan's partner, then Stan breaks up with his backup wife and then Stan tells his partner to break up with Francine. But he says no and tries to kill Stan, but then Stan and his partner fight and Francine and Stan's backup wife fight and just as Stan's partner is about to kill him. Then Stan's backup wife kills his partner then Stan and Francine beat up Stan's backup wife. Meanwhile, Hayley asks Steve and Roger (who are playing the detective duo Wheels and The Legman) to find her iPod, so they ask Barry and Klaus questions, but as it turns out Roger was using it the whole time.Overall,Hayley's plot was better.

    What I liked: the return of Legs and the Wheel Man, Snot, Klaus and apparently Roger all using Haley's toothbrush, for different reasons, good cop/bad cop, the lame puns, Stan realizing he loves his wife too much for a replacement, amongst other things.



    Good episode. One of my favorite things about the episode Haylias was Legs and the Wheel Man, and I thought it was a great plot in this episode. I knew right away Roger was the culprit, but it was still a funny plot. Stan's plot was kind of boring but it did have a nice resolution, so because of all of this my final grade is going to be an A+ or so, I think is fair.moreless

    Well, this episode was really awesome! Very funny, and hilarious jokes! I loved the Guinness World Record part when Stan said to the woman that he would set the record for shooting a woman in the head with a gun the most times in a row! HaHaHa! Hilarious! I loved it! Another really funny part was when Jim is exercising by the pool! That was very funny! I could not stop laughing at this episode. Another great part was when Francine kept thinking that Stan died and it turned out to be something else. Very good! If you like American Dad, you will really love this episode!moreless

    Wow this episode is my favorite American Dad episode ever.This episode blends great action and hillarious humor includig my favorite part all time that was when the part when Roger Steve make their own theme music when they tell Haley about Their show was sooooooooooooo funny and had great action.It was very funny when Roger and Steve try to break Klaus and Steve finds a hair and says things are getting a little hairy and Klaus says you proud of that you proud of what you just said and when they compete for who gets to bad cop was great.Also the Stan and Francine storline was good and I liked when the talking kaola freaked out when Stan got kicked out of the plane and the battle at the end was great and after Jim (I think thats what his name was) was killed and Roger and Steve were complaining about how grusome Jim's death was made me laugh very funny.Overal an amazingly funny episode.moreless
