  • IMO, best Family Guy episode ever.

    Everything works to perfection from Meg's prom date to the guys joining the police force, Brian's bubble gum fart scene is timeless!

    Meg can't find a date to her junior prom, and even though he is dating Jillian, Brian ends up going with Meg. At the prom, Brian gets drunk to make the night pass, but ends up making out with Meg. Meg begins to think of Brian as her boyfriend and becomes obsessed with spending every moment with him. Meanwhile, Peter, Cleveland and Quagmire join the police force to help Joe, and end up saving Brian. Once again, the episode seems to has a funnier subplot. Main plot was great but Meg was getting a little annoying because ever since the make out she thinks Brian is her boyfriend. I am just the guys save Brian from that near the end. However, the funniest part in Meg/Brian plot was the Cool Whip (in which Stewie emphasis the h; this would happen again in Man with Two Brians). As for the subplot, pretty much funny. Another LOL moments I forgot to list in this episode was Peter finding a giraffe then it went straight to Quagmire's house and run off to Cleveland's bathtub doing that gag again (for the second time). Most of the parts were nonstop LOL moments. Overall, this episode was a great one. 8.5/10moreless
  • great

    8.5
    I laughed so much at this episode: Joe watching Bonnie through the Griffin's window and his explanation for doing so ("Get naked you strange whore!"), the cavity search scene, brian standing up for meg at the dance, lois repeatedly hitting brian after finding out he kissed meg, the "cool hwhip" scene (I'm surprised more people don't say it like that after watching this episode), the ending with quagmire and those girls (the way he said "Wait what" killed me for some reason), etc.

    good episode. It started off pretty disturbingly, what with Meg's back up date killing his brother (What the heck?), and Meg saying she was going to kill herself. But after all that the episode got a lot better. B+ or so is going to be my final grade for this installment.moreless
  • Brian goes with Meg to her junior prom

    8.5
    I thought that this was an overall great episode of "Family Guy". I thought it was great that Brian went to the junior prom with Meg after nobody would go to the prom with her. I thought it was hilarious when Peter brought home a giraffe in the beginning of the episode especially when the giraffe stuck its head inside Quagmire's house and then destroys Cleveland's house which Cleveland's bathtub falls down and says "I really need to stop taking baths during Peter's shenanigans" (which had me laughing so hard). It thought it was funny when Brian just kept drinking because he didn't want to go to the prom with Meg. I thought it was great when Brian stood up to Connie for Meg and she deserved to be treated like that for being mean to Meg. Peter, Quagmire, and Cleveland training at Joe's police academy was very funny. It was hilarious when Stewie isn't saying "Cool Whip" right. It was also hilarious when Lois kept punching Brian when he told her that he and Meg kind of made out at the junior prom. There were many more jokes that made me laugh as well such as when Chris said that he masturbates on Thursday afternoons and more. My score was brought down just a little because I thought Meg was being a little too creepy and obsessed over Brian. The ending was also hilarious when Quagmire was getting to have sex with two women after he had a talk with Meg and then one of the women said "awhile" wrong and then Quagmire said "What?". Overall, a great episode of "Family Guy". 8.5/10moreless

      Lois: (sarcastically) Ohhh, what a shock!
      Brian: (sarcastic laugh) Look the short version is, this morning she made me eat the hair in her pie..
      (Lois punches Brian again)
      Brian: (getting up from the ground) No its not what you think, Stewie had some too..

      (Brian walks in hung over)
      Stewie: Oh yes, the day can begin, good morning Brian. Now we can do this one of two ways, I can bust your balls to pieces right now, or we could spread it out over the course of the day.
      Brian: I don't want to talk about it.
      Stewie: Well I do, so tell me everything that happened at the dance.

    • (Meg tells Brian about her backup for the dance and how he already had plans)

      Stewie: Cool Hwhip, yeah.
      Brian: You mean Cool Whip.
      Stewie: Yeah, Cool Hwhip.
      Brian: Cool Whip.
      Stewie: Cool Hwhip.
      Brian: Cool Whip.
      Stewie: Cool Hwhip.
      Brian: You're saying it weird. Why are you putting so much emphasis on the H?
      Stewie: What are you talking about? I'm just saying it. Cool Hwhip. You put Cool Hwhip on pie. Pie tastes better with Cool Hwhip.
      Brian: Say whip.
      Stewie: Whip.
      Brian: Now say Cool Whip.
      Stewie: Cool Hwhip.
      Brian: Cool Whip.
      Stewie: Cool Hwhip.
      Brian: Cool Whip.
      Stewie: Cool Hwhip.
      Brian: You're eating hair!
      (Stewie spits out pie)

    • Meg: We should totally be boyfriend and girlfriend.
      Brian: Well, Meg, uh, you know what's strange? I-I-I think I might be gay. Um, I-I saw this penis on the Internet today and I thought to myself, "Well, that's... that's just fine."

    • Stewie: (About Meg) FYI, the carpet matches the drapes, in color and length.

    • Lois: Oh Brian, it is so nice of you to take Meg to this dance. It really means a lot to her.
      Brian: Ya got any weed?
      Lois: I put it in your coat pocket.

    • Brian: You know, Connie, I think I have a theory about why you're such a bitch.
      Connie: Excuse me?
      Meg: Brian, let's just go.
      Brian: No, no, no, no, no. Now hang on... hang on, Meg, hang on. You see, Connie, you're popular because you developed early and started putting out when you were 12. But now you can't stand to look at yourself in the mirror because all you see is a whore. So, you pick on Meg to avoid the inevitable realization that once your body's used up by age 19, you're going to be a worn-out, chalky-skinned burlap sack that even your step-dad won't want. How's that? Am I in the ballpark?
      (Connie cries and runs)

    • Brian: Aw, I'm sure you'll find someone to go with you.
      Meg: No I won't. I'm so fat and gross.
      Brian: Aw...
      Meg: I should just kill myself.
      Brian: Aw... That's... come on.
      Meg: I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna kill myself 'cause no one will go with me.
      (runs to kitchen)
      Brian: Aw...
      (Meg opens drawer and rummages for a knife)
      Meg, stop it. Come on.
      (Meg takes out a knife)
      All right, all right. Meg, look...

    • (Telephone rings)
      Brian: Hello? Oh hey Jillian, what's up?
      Jillian: Brian, are you coming over to watch Laguna Beach tonight?
      Brian: Uh, what time does it start?
      Jillian: Ten o'clock, Eastern and Specific Time.
      Brian: What? What did you say? Specific Time? Don't you mean Pacific Time?
      Jillian: No I think it's called Specific Time. They mean it starts specifically at 10:00.
      (Stewie laughing)
      Brian: Stewie, are you on the line?
      Stewie: Yes.
      Brian: Jillian, I'll talk to you later.

    • (Giraffe inside Quagmire's window)
      Quagmire: Oh, good morning honey. That feels really good. What... ? Hey! Hey! Hey! What the hell? You're not the same giraffe from last night. Get out of here.

    • Peter: All right boys, the best targets are old, rich people. There's one now. Go get him.
      (Group of boys surround Herbert)
      Herbert: Oh no, there's no police here to help me! I hope you don't find the money strapped to my thigh.

    • Tom Tucker: Now let's go to Ollie Williams' Cooking Corner. What are you making, Ollie?
      Ollie: Eggo!

    • (Brian vomits after kissing Meg )
      Brian: Sorry, that was the booze not you. (pauses) You going to eat that?

    • Cleveland: (Giraffe crashes into Cleveland's house, and his bathtub slides out the hole in the wall) What the hell? No no no no no! I got to stop taking my baths during Peter's shenanigans.
