Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Peter become friends with Bill Clinton; Brian has to get potty-trained

    Peter helps Bill Clinton with his flat tire, and they soon become friends. They begin spending a lot of time together and Lois begins to believe that Bill is inflicting bad influence on Peter. But when she confronts Bill, they end up having sex. Peter, upset that his wife would do this, tries to get back at Lois by having an affair of his own, but soon realizes that he loves her too much to do so. Meanwhile, Lois and Stewie try to potty-train Brian. An underrated episode but I still didn't find that great. Peter's plot where he is hanging out with Bill Clinton was getting boring. There's only like 2-4 parts that I found it funny. Of course, it got ridiculous when Lois and Bill have sex. This might prove that Lois changed a lot since the revival...lots of nagging to Peter. Anyway, the highlights for the episode was Brian and Stewie's plot cause it was very funny that they watched a video of using the toilet was the funniest to me. Also,before I conclude this review, another thing that dropped the score is the Conway Twitty gag. Yep, the first time we saw that waste of a gag. Overall, a decent episode with a not so good A plot. 7/10moreless

  • This is considered a BAD episode? Why? How? What? Why is this reason?

    I thought that this was a superb episode of "Family Guy" but I honestly don't see how this episode could get bad scores. It wasn't the funniest episode but it did have some funny scenes. In my opinion, I think that they should've focused more the Brian/Stewie plot instead of the Peter/Bill/Lois plot. It was very funny when Peter and Bill Clinton became friends after Peter tried to fix Bill's flat tire and he ends up in the hospital. Lois was getting tired of Brian using the restroom outside and she is tired of stepping in Brian's poop so she makes Brian use the toilet but Brian doesn't know how to use it. I don't know Lois made Brian use the toilet though, dog use outside as their restroom for pete's sake but this is a cartoon and cartoons don't make sense sometimes. It was hilarious when neither Stewie and Brian didn't know how to use the toilet and as soon as they flushed the toilet, they run off scared. Brian and Stewie watching television on how to use the toilet was funny. Mayor West's cameo appearance at the end of the episode was very funny. I thought it was very funny when Peter wanted to have sex with Babs to get even with Lois (I'll tell you what I mean right now). The only thing I didn't like was Lois having sex with Bill Clinton and cheating on Peter (that's where Peter wants to get even). Overall, despite that one thing, I honestly don't see how this episode got bad scores. 9/10moreless
  • Unbelieveable! :shock: This is considered a Bad "Family Guy" episode? :?

    I've seen strange things in my life. I've seen the Twin Towers fall on T.V., I've seen a guy stuff a whole slice of apple pie up his mouth without taking a single bite, and the past eight years in the U.S.A. are probably going to go down as the most bizarre years the world's ever known! But I find it really strange there are people who consider this a bad episode because of the gags and plots. This is "Family Guy" we're talking about! It's not Supposed to be taken seriously! The humor is tongue-in-cheek, and since it's random, you never know what's going to happen! One evening, Peter Griffin throws out his back trying to lift up a limo. Bill Clinton visits him in the hospital because it was His car Peter was trying to lift! Bill offers to make it up by hanging out with him and doing a bunch of fun stuff! One of those things is going to Chuck E. Cheese's! :D Who wouldn't have fun there? But the fun times become weird when Bill and Peter smoke Pot and they think just because Bill Clinton is a former President, they can eat any pig they want. Lois finds out about Peter's antics, but doesn't place any real blame on him. She thinks if it wasn't for Bill, Peter wouldn't even be acting the way he is. So she confronts Bill, but ends up getting shocked and awed when Bill effortlessly manages to con Lois into making out, and Peter is shocked to walk in on them doing it! Lois doesn't want to lose Peter, so she says he can make out with anyone he wants to in order to be on even ground. Peter's weird choice ends up being Lois' own mother, Babs! Surprisingly, Babs doesn't mind doing that at all! But Peter can't go through with it because he loves Lois to much to cheat on her, so he runs down the stairs naked to tell her, and Lois' dad sees Peter naked and doesn't even care! That's funny! :idea: Enough said! ;)moreless
  • Great episode.

    This episode is like one of the funniest episodes ever made by Family Guy.I loved it when that pig desroyed the kitchen and bit Chris.That part was very funny and it was one of the best parts of the episode.I hate it when Conway Twitty performs.It was not even funny and it was the worst part of the show.It is one of the funniest episodes made by that Seth Macfarlane.He made a good show and a good episode.Another part that I loved about this episode was that every pop culture thing like The Thing was the coolest thing of the episodemoreless

      Alexander Graham Bell: Oh, really? Probably just some teenagers somewhere... damn them.
      Thomas Watson: Well, well that's, that's the thing. I mean, there's, there's only two phones, in the, well, in the world and one of them is in my office and the other one is in your office and those two didn't even exist until a few hours ago.

    • Lois: Alright, Peter. Who's it gonna be? Who do you wanna sleep with?
      Peter: Ah, who are we kidding, Lois? This is never gonna work. Lets just forget the whole thing.
      Lois: No, honey. It's gotta work. Just pick somebody, and I'll make it happen. Deep down, in your heart of hearts, if, if it could be anyone in the world, who would it be? Halle Berry? Ann Margerat?
      Peter: Anybody I want?
      Lois: Anybody. Don't be afraid to tell me.

    • Bill: Dude, check it out! There's a pig behind that fence.
      Peter: Aw yeah, I see it.
      Bill: Dude, we can eat that pig.
      Peter: What?
      Bill: Dude, come on! We can totally eat that pig. We could, we could do it, man, we could. It'll be so easy man, it'll take like a minute.
      Peter: Could it really be that fast?
      Bill: Peter, that pig could be in our stomaches in like one minute. And then we could, and then, we could do other stuff.
      Peter: (stoned laughing) Oh right, I'm starved. Let's do it.

    • Meg: Wow! Bill Clinton! Hey, uh, can I get a picture of you on my cell phone?
      Bill Clinton: Sure.
      (Bill lifts up his shirt right when the picture was taken and it shows a nipple ring.)

    • (Peter is playing DDR)

      Bill Clinton: Tag out man! Tag out! (Peter tags Bill in and Bill starts playing) I'm a Barbie girl in a Barbie world. Wrapped in plastic, it's fantastic. Come on Barbie, let's go party, uh, uh, uh yeah!

    • Peter: Hey, Bill. Are you up for a little bowling? I swiped some money out of Lois's purse. I don't think she'll notice because she's here... humping... you!
      Lois: Peter! Look, I know this looks bad and I feel horrible, and... and I know nothing I could say to you could possibly justify why I slept with Bill except... I mean, Peter, the man presided over the longest economic expansion in US history and he reduced the percentage of Americans on welfare to its lowest level in 33 years!
      Bill Clinton: 35 years.
      Lois: 35 years, Peter!
      Peter: Well, well. I learned something today. Apparently, there's the side of Bill Clinton the world knows, and then there's the dark, sex crazed side only I know!

    • Peter: Oh, boy. This is gonna be fun! I haven't made a crank call in years!
      Bill: Shh, quiet! It's ringing!
      Linda: Hello?
      Bill: Hello? Is this Linda Tripp?
      Linda: Yes.
      Bill: You shouldn't have talked, you stupid bitch! I hope you die! (Hangs up)
      Peter: Boy, that uh... that wasn't really a crank call. That was, that was just unpleasant.
      Bill: Sorry about that.

    • Peter: I haven't felt this good in years. I feel like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the fruity accent and the Pirates of the Caribbean wife.

    • Peter: Hello flabby, out of shape family. Check out my bulging ripplyness.
      Brian: Peter, you've been to the gym once... for fifteen minutes.
      Peter: And I'm fifteen minutes stronger Brian. I'd rip a phone book in half, but for the life of me, I don't know anyone who uses a phone book anymore. So I'll use Meg's laptop.
      (proceeds to completely destroy Meg's laptop)

    • (Brian and Stewie are in the bathroom, staring at the toilet)
      Brian: How do you think it works?
      Stewie: I have no idea.
      Brian: Look, Lois told me I had to start using the toilet, and you're the one who's had potty-training, so I'm counting on you to help me.
      Stewie: Alright, we're two intelligent guys, we can figure this out.
      (they walk toward the toilet)
      Brian: What's that big back part?
      Stewie: (nervously) Maybe that's where the wizard lives who operates this thing. It would be wise not to anger him.
      Brian: (reaching for the flush handle) I wonder what this thing is for.
      Stewie: Brian! Be careful with that, we don't know what it does.
      Brian: (sighs) Alright, here goes.
      Stewie: Oh god, oh god, careful, careful, careful, careful!
      (Brian flushes the toilet, they both run out of the bathroom, Stewie yelling and Brian barking)

    • Tom Tucker: In other news, former president Bill Clinton was in town today to judge Quahog's annual "Miss Cankle USA" contest.
      (cuts to pageant, Bill is sitting in the audience, two heavy-set women are on the runway)
      Bill Clinton: Now that's a cankle! Where does the calf fat end and the ankle fat begin? Who knows, that's the fun.

    • Stewie: (After putting two starfish over his nipples) Hey Brian, look, I'm a stripper. I'm working my way through college. I should be more reluctant to take my clothes off, but I'm not because my step-father had boundary issues.

    • (Brian is sitting on the toilet)
      Lois: Well, look at you using the toilet. I am so proud of you.
      Brian: Hey, well you deserve all the praise for encouraging me to do it.
      Lois: Well still, good for you.
      (Lois leaves, and Stewie enters)
      Stewie: So, where are you really doin' your business?
      Brian: Oh, I found a place.
      (Scene cuts to Adam West's mansion, he walks near some bushes
      Adam West: Well I'll be damned, and they called me crazy; "You can't plant sausage seeds" they said, well look at this!

  • NOTES (1)

    • The scene where Brian gives Lois a dead bird for Christmas was referenced in the older episode, Fast Times at Buddy Cianci Jr. High, where Stewie teases Brian for leaving a dead bird on the carpet, and to which Brian replies: "That was a gift, you bastard. That was a gift for the family."
