Episode Summary

Brian and Stewie are locked up inside a bank vault for an entire episode.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Decent comedy

  • This episode sucks big time...

    I should think that Brain and Stewie are the worst episode ever without the characters and only both.
  • nothing but filler

    cause this is filler filler of the time and hour in a half is just too long for creative minds woo woo
  • This is not an episode, this is just Family Guy time filler.

    I thought this was a very boring episode of Family Guy and nothing more than a blatant waste filler. This episode is about Brian and Stewie going to a bank so Brian can retrieve something from his safe box, they however lose track of time and the vault closes. Throughout the rest of the episode, Brian is forced to do the nastiest things with Stewie while they are trapped for 2 days. Were off to a good start I see. . . . Was it honestly necessary to see Brian lick poop off Stewies dirty diaper, have him lick Stewies butt and Stewie ACTUALLY enjoys it! That is just sick and nearly made me throw up in my mouth a little, and worst of all it was supposed to be funny. Brian then explains why he has a gun in his hands and almost commits suicide because of how bad his life is. Just how the hell can he say such a stupid thing? He has family and friends, but now all of the sudden he wants to quit life? Also why is unneeded Drama being thrown into this episode? Family Guy is about Comedy, NOT Drama. And the ending feels very incomplete and lazy and it made me wonder what I just watched. But not to mention, Seth is the ONLY voice work in this episode by all means necessary. When I say by all means necessary I do really mean it, it doesn't feature the other voice works of characters such as Chris, Lois, Meg, or anyone else. That made this episode really lazy, there wasn't even appearances of anyone else, it was just Brian and Stewie (this episode was named "Brian and Stewie" for a good reason) and that's it. There was no Peter, Lois, Meg, Chris, Cleveland, Joe, Quagmire, etc. It didn't feature any cutaway gags or different settings, it was just that bank vault and nothing else. Being the most effortless episode of Family Guy I've ever seen, I can safely say pass this episode up and go watch a funnier one.moreless
  • Some keep saying it's a bad episode, but to me it was a good episode

    In this episode, Brian and Stewie are trapped in a bank vault. The only parts that made laugh were: Brian eating Stewie's feces, Stewie holding a gun, and Stewie dancing while being drunk. I was kinda disturbed by the Stewie getting his ears pierced. The one part that was kinda emotional was Brian confessing why he has a gun. The episode was pretty good, but somewhat repulsive.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Stewie: (Throws up at the sight of Brian eating his diaper clean) Well, come on, clean it up.
      Brian: I just cleaned out your diaper, and now you expect me to clean this?
      Stewie: But Brian, you like throw up.
      Brian: Yeah, it's true. I do like throw up... (eats it)

    • Stewie: (takes a drink of Brian's scotch) Mmm, I like that! I mean, I like the stuff that comes out of Lois' breasts better, but this is good too. But I don't wanna get too buzzed! People take advantage of kids when they're drunk. I mean, it would be so easy, and I wouldn't even remember. So don't you try anything!
      Brian: "Try anything?" I've already practically french-kissed your butt!
      Stewie: Yeah, there was no "practically" about that.

    • (Brian is about to "clean" a soiled Stewie with his tongue)
      Stewie: Okay, now warn me before you do it, because I don't want to be- (falsetto) Moooon Riiiiver!

  • NOTES (2)

    • Although credited, Alex Borstein (Lois), Seth Green (Chris), Mila Kunis (Meg) and Mike Henry are absent from this episode.

    • This episode is being touted as the 150th episode. Although it may be the 150th produced episode, at the time of its airing, it will not be the 150th aired episode.


    • Stewie: Oh, and just do me a favor and tell me when you're about to begin because I don't want to be surpri--Moooooon River!

      This is an allusion to the 1985 movie Fletch, where Chevy Chase's character undergoes a rectal exam.
