  • This episode was just plain awful

    This episode was just plain awful. You can tell that Lois was very angry at Joyce when she made a news report when she found out that Lois was a porno movie star. I do not like the Muppets cut away gag is when Kermit screamed at Fozzie that they were changing the script into "Pigs in Space" instead of "Bears in Space'. Fozzie should have said to his friend by saying, "Okay Okay Kermit. Calm down, You don't need to I do not like the way when Kermit yelled, "There's been a at him. I also do not like the way when Bonnie (played by the lovely Jennifer Tilly) called Lois a 'slut'. I noticed that Joe (played by Patrick Warburton) didn't care that his wife did that. I only hope that she will owe her an a huge apology for saying that.moreless
  • Superb episode

    First of all, I thought the Family Guy introduction was funny because they didn't the put the Family Guy introduction that they always do instead the introduction was with Stewie, Tom, and Peter and Peter was Frankenstein and all that... haha hilarious introduction of "Family Guy". I just didn't like how Joyce try to get revenge on Lois after when Lois humiliated Joyce in high school and that story about that crippled little boy in the beginning of this episode. Despite those two things, I enjoyed this episode. The cutaway with Lois being drunk and tickling Stewie and then throwing up on him was hilarious.. yes it was gross.. but it was hilarious. It was hilarious when Lois kept laughing while the priest was talking and then Peter said "stop kissing ass". The cutaway with The Muppets was also hilarious. The cutaway with Peter trying to give his phone number to the housekeeper was funny but it did take slightly too long for it to be over. The cutaway with Grease was also funny. It was hilarious when Tom Tucker said "Holy (block), that just turned out awful" after the Channel 5 theme song. It was funny when Bonnie came in the house and called Lois a slut after Joyce the news reporter revealed that Lois was in a porno. When the guys were talking to Chris and made fun of Lois at school and then Meg says "Yeah Griffin! Your mom's gross and nasty" and the guys say "hey, that a dude's mom, your a whore" and then Chris said "Yeah, your a whore daughter" to Meg. Lois saying "Yes, Tina Fey, your better than Jesus" was hilarious. When Lois was showing everyone at church her porno was hilarious especially Quagmire's facial expression when he saw it. Overall, this was hilarious Family Guy episode despite a couple of things. 9/10moreless
  • I can't believe the eights and nines for this episode. Are we watching the same show? I had high hopes for this episode and once again I've been let down. This is Family Guy at their lowest. Seth should keep not only politics but his religion to himself.moreless

    A new reporter has replaced Diane Simmons. She is Joyce Kinney. Lois is fascinated with her and they get together for dinner. They got along well and they become good friends. Lois tells Joyce a secret she has told anybody before. She did a porno film. The next night, Joyce reported on the news the porn film Lois did and the whole town now looked down at Lois. Lois was angry and felt betrayed by Joyce but Joyce told Lois that she was the victim of a prank Lois did to her in high school and did to get revenge. Lois did apologized but it was too late. Knowing how it feels to be the victim, Lois was banned from the church. Brian talked to her and with some help, they showed the film in church and she was forgiven. After seeing this, I hate Lois even more. She did get what she deserved after pulling that prank on Joyce. I thought Lois had class but after I saw her as a mean girl, I have second thoughts about her. We've seen Lois as a model and that was bad because it showed the transformation from being a good mother to being a nasty woman. This showed her in a negative light. Showing the porno in church was the lowest Seth has done and just like politics, he is forcing his religion down our throats. Enough is enough Seth!!! The only 2 good things I can say is that it is a Lois episode not set up by Peters' stupidity (Baby You Knock Me Out) and Brian acted like he did in seasons 1 to 3. But this was the worst Lois episode ever.moreless
  • Thumbs down all you want, Joyce Kinney needs to die.

    I hate this character, she's not funny like Dianne was, she's just plain boring. Please Seth, kill her off the show and just let Tom do the anchoring.



    Anyways, this episode is about a new anchor who replaces Diane Simmons after she was shot by Stewie, she later finds out that Lois humiliated her in high school, so she gets her revenge by putting a story on the news on how Lois starred in a pornographic film, making everybody hate Lois. Okay, first off, what's with that, PEOPLE HAVE SEX, IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL, yet people treat Lois like crap because of it, she was kicked out of every building. Until during church, she shows the film to everyone.



    The only good parts about the episode was the Facebook cutaway, and Quagmire's reaction to the porno.



    My score is 1 out of 10

  • One of the funniest in this season.

    9.0
    This episode sure does have some ups and downs, but those ups were so hilarious I gotta love it.

    The beginning is kinda lame - Stewie the Hulk is kinda unoriginal and it made me think this is what the episode will be about. Then comes the TV spot about some ill child, which is just low even though I do enjoy morbid jokes on Family Guy. Then some more boring "Lois loves the reporter" and we're finally over the boring part.

    Then comes the Consuela sketch which was great, I always enjoy Consuela jokes - she's great. Then the Meg-Joyce story takes a twist and we get to see some stuff from Lois' past.

    And the final scene is why I give this episode such a high score - it's just great. Quagmire's face when he sees what he sees, Brian and the lipstick and Stewie's concern about his origin... I really need such a good laugh.moreless

    • Priest: Let me remind you all that this Saturday at 5:00 p.m., we'll have vespers, not to be confused with the Italian motor scooter.
      (Everyone laughs, Lois laughs longer)
      Lois: (laughing) Vespers!
      Priest: And don't forget, next weekend, we will have the Sunday afternoon family picnic--as God said to Noah--weather permitting.
      (Everyone again laughs, Lois laughs longer)
      Lois: (laughing) Stop it!
      Priest: And another reminder: When you arrive to mass, please do not park behind the rectory. As the Corinthians said to the Galatians, "That's my land."
      (Again everyone laughs, Lois laughs longer)
      Lois: (laughing) Oh, ho, ho! Look out, Gallagher!
      Peter: Stop kissing ass!

    • Lois: Oh, Father, your homily was so moving today.
      Priest: Thank you, Lois. And thank you for the great job you did with the rummage sale for the needy last weekend.
      Lois: Oh, it was my pleasure. You know, I accidentally almost put a cashmere sweater in there. Can you believe? (chuckles) What would one of them do with a cashmere sweater?
      Priest: You know, Lois, we also have a bake sale coming up, and we're short about eight pies.
      Lois: Well, I'll hit the grocery store this afternoon and get to work.
      Peter: (while slowly driving away) Okay, Lois, bye! Bye, church! Bye, church guy! Bye, unending conversation! Bye, terrible church people! Bye!

    • Lois: Excuse me, Miss Kinney? I don't mean to bother you, but my name is Lois Griffin. I-I am a huge fan, and I just think you are doing a fantastic job. And after what I went through with Diane Simmons, well, let me just say it's nice to be standing here with no one trying to murder me.
      Stewie: (while aiming a blaster at Lois) Yea, no, you're fine.

    • (After Joyce made a news story about Lois being in a porno)
      Lois: She totally betrayed me! I thought girlfriends were supposed to support each other.
      (Bonnie enters)
      Bonnie: HA! SLUT!

    • (After Lois explains how she got involved in a porn film)
      Stewie: Good Lord! Am I a porn baby?!

    • Student: Your mom's in a porno! I saw her boobs!
      Chris: Shut up!!
      Second Student: Hey, Griffin, your mom's a whore!
      Chris: Come on, guys, knock it off!
      Meg: Yeah, Griffin, your mom's gross and nasty!
      Third Student: Hey!
      Student: Not cool!
      Second Student: That's a dude's mom!
      Meg: Well...she's also my mom.
      Student: Aw, your mom's a whore!
      Chris: Yeah! Suck it! You're a whore's daughter!
      Second Student: Yeah, Griffin gets it!

    • Priest: Leave this house of God!
      Lois: But-but I love the church! It's an important part of my life!
      Priest: Maybe you should've thought of that before you made a porn.
      Lois: But, Father, I didn't mean... Wait. Did you say "a porn"?
      Priest: Yes.
      Lois: Oh. Well, that's kind of weird.
      Priest: Why?
      Lois: Well, I mean, you'd either say, "You made porn," or "You made a porno." Y-You don't say, "Made a porn." It just...It hits the ear wrong.
      Priest: Oh, God, have I been saying it wrong this whole time?
      (Two boys next to the priest nod)

    • Priest: (after watching Lois' porn film) I know I'm a man of God, but that sh*t is HOT!
