  • Part 2

    Stewie convinces Brian to go on a road trip with him to San Francisco to search for a man Stewie believes is his real father. Another hilarious part for the untold story movie. Storyline is the same as previous episode. They were both funny. I am gonna list the LOL'd moments here...a few of the cutaways, no O in country, some of the things that Peter/Lois did for Meg/Chris, Stewie driving a RV, and one more. The rest are funny as well but not lol funny though. Overall this episode was funny just like the first part. 10/10moreless
  • Hilarious!!!

    I thought that this was a hilarious episode of "Family Guy". The cutaway with Peter playing fetch with his pet tyrannosaurus and he grabs a guy's body and Peter says "Ew, it's got spit all over it" which was the guy's body's blood. The cutaway with the Jewman Group was absolutely hilarious. It was very funny that Quagmire got an RV so he can have sex with women in San Francisco. It was funny that Stewie saw a man on television that looked exactly like him and he wants to go to San Francisco to see if he really is his dad and the only way to go to San Francisco was to go with Quagmire in his RV. Peter dressing as Spider-Man was hilarious. Chris and Meg interrupting Peter and Lois' romantic time in the bathtub was also very funny. I thought it was funny when Stewie stole the keys from Quagmire and then he and Brian take to find his dad. It was hilarious when Stewie took the pills and he wasn't on the road which made him and Brian stranded in the desert. I thought it was funny when Brian and Stewie were imagining a Dr. Pepper machine in the desert when it was just actually an RC machine. It was funny when Peter was teaching Meg about dating and he said that one of them was that Meg had to love guy's farts and Peter farts in the car. Peter saying that horses are bad people was very funny. It was funny when Stewie and the man that looked like Stewie were freaking out that they look alike. The ending was hilarious when the announcer said "Did Stewie find his real dad? Will the man in the elevator's friend pick him up? etc. find out on the next episode of Family Guy" LOL. Overall, a hilarious episode of "Family Guy". 10/10moreless

    stewie sees a man on TV who looks like him and he is convinced the man is his father. so he goes on a quest to san francisco, along with brian, to find the man. stewie finally does, and learns the man is not his father, but really him, from the future.



    a good episode. the sub plot is kind of dumb but it is pretty funny dumb. and the 'cliffhanger' with the man being stewie was funny and clever. so overall my grade for this episode is an A+, a funny episode with a pretty good plot, i thinkmoreless
  • Part two of a very good three part episode. This was also a movie.

    When Peter and Lois enroll Stevie in a swimming class Stewie is out swam by another kid. After trying to kill the kid he winds up in Hell for a short time. When he comes back he desides to change his life and be nice. Meanwhile Peter gets a segment on tv called "Grind My Gears", but he is fired when Brian and Stweie get drunk and crash Brians car into a bar. Stewie sees someone on tv that looks just like him and he thinks its his real father. Brian and Stewie (and Quagmire for a while) set on a road trip to find Stewies father. When Stweie finally finds the man it turns out to be him from the future. Stewie and his future self "Stu" go to the future where Stewie finds out that he is a virgin, Chris is married and a cop, and Meg went to college and had a sex change. Meanwhile Peter and Lois try to find dates for Chris and Meg so they can have some alone time. Stewie trys to change Stu and stop himself from being a virgin. Stu tells Stewie he turned out the way he is because of a life changing moment. Stewie goes back to the past when Stewie trys to kill another swim mate. Stewie stops his other self and his other self destroys him. Overall it is a good movie with more language than the show.

    • Stew: I'm not your father, Stewie. I'm you.

    • Stewie: Ok, now if I get a fax, can I stay online and still receive the fax without a dedicated line?
      Foreign employee:(Points to fax machine)Yeah you can put a piece of paper in here, and make like a phone call, and your friend will get another piece of paper with the same picture.
      Stewie: Can I possibly speak to someone who didn't come to this country on a floating door?

    • Wilford Brimley: Hi, I'm Wilford Brimley and I have diabetes. It hurts me to pee and it causes me to be short with my family. I can't sleep at night. The other day I stubbed my toe and took it out on the dog. And two weeks ago I ran out of vanilla ice cream and struck my wife. Then I find out my wife has been dead for six years. Who the hell did I hit?

    • Lois: Okay Chris, now that we've discussed kissing and cuddling, it's time to practice eating out... at a fancy restaurant.

    • Al Harrington: Hi, I'm Al Harrington, President and CEO of Al Harrington's Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man Emporium and Warehouse!

    • Peter: Sweet, Quagmire! You got a winnebago!

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode, along with the others that make up the movie, is not recognized as an official episode by FOX, or by the Family Guy staff.

    • This is part 2 of the movie Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, released on DVD September 27, 2005, and then later broadcast on Fox on May 21, 2006.

    • The Thundercats flashback from the DVD version was cut. It shows Lion-O using his Sword of Omens to see Cheetara go to the bathroom when Snarf walks in.

  • ALLUSIONS (11)

    • Spaceballs: The scene of the Winnebago crashing in the desert (and the subsequent Star Wars parody) reference this Mel Brooks film.

    • Lethal Weapon: The scene of Lois interrogating Chris about Sex and the City is a parody of a torture scene in this Mel Gibson film.

    • Vacation

      The scene when Stewie wrecks Quagmire's Winnebego is a parody of the scene in the movie Vacation when Clark wrecks the family truckster in the desert. Brian is holding his nose just like Rusty did in the movie, and the airbag goes off in Stewie's face, just like it did to Clark. In addition, Stewie ends up walking with his underwear on his head, just like Clark did when he was looking for help.

    • Beverly Hills, 90210

      The scene in the Peach Pit is a reference to the TV show Beverly Hills, 90210. The Peach Pit was their hangout. Included are characters Brenda, Kelly, Donna, Dylan, Andrea and Brandon. Andrea as an old lady is a play on actress Gabrielle Carteris' age. She was in her 30's while playing a high school character.

    • The Jew Man Group

      This is an obvious play on The Blue Man Group, a futuristic trio dressed in black with blue greaspaint covering their faces. While there are touring shows all over, they are mainly known as Vegas performers.

    • Star Wars

      Both the music that opens the scene when Brian and Stewie are walking in the desert and the Jawas surrounding a rental car are references to the movie Star Wars.

    • Smokey And The Bandit

      When Stewie steals Quagmire's Winnebago the song "East Bound And Down" is playing. This is the Jerry Reed song made popular by the Burt Reynolds movie Smokey And The Bandit.

    • Deep Space 9

      Stewie's cousin Quark Griffin is a take on the tv show Deep Space 9.

    • Beezus and Ramona

      When Brian asks what Stewie is doing in his piggy bank, Stewie responds with, "None of your beeswax, Ramona!" This is a reference to the childrens books by Beverly Clearly featuring the characters Beezus and Ramona.

    • The Sign for Tivo was a blatant reference to it. Also they showed what the features of Tivo are such as, Fast Forward as well as Rewind live tv in this case he rewinded real life.

    • Bango was his Name Oh

      The title of the second episode is an allusion to the lyrics (Bingo was his name-o!) of a children's song called Bingo.
