    Come on guys. To those of you who didn't like it, the episode broke from an 8 year format and focused on the two most popular characters of the series, it kept some of the tone of comedy and (gag) poo cleaning, but then had a real heartwarming touch added to Brian and Stewie's relationship. It was *cleverly* written, and honestly the first episode that didn't drop my jaw with the tongue-in-cheek humor it usually contains. I enjoy this series but it's good to have something new, and they did this beautifullymoreless

    After watching it again, I found that it had its moments. I just don't like how Brian and Stewie get so much screen time. Overall, it's a decent episode.
  • Can't rate higher than 1 on this garbage.

    With nasty jokes, nothing happening, and including two of the most annoying characters on Family Guy, I can honestly say that THIS should be considered the WORST, EPISODE, EVER.
  • Worst episode ever.

    Worst episode ever
  • They have picked the wrong pair. Brian and Stewie are funny when they are together but they should have their limits. They have the Road to episodes and so many other episodes about them that were funny but this was so bad and unfunny I wanted to puke.moreless

    Brian and Stewie went to the bank because Brian wanted to get some things he has in his safe deposit box. Not keeping track of time, the bank vault closes and they are trapped for two days. Without going crazy, both of them have to do things they don't want to do. Brian had to eat what was on Stewies' diaper and vomit. Now I know dogs do this but Brian didn't want to. This is why I hate Brian now because I feel he is ashamed of who he is and would rather be a human than a dog. Stewie bought a very expensive sweater and tricked Brian into doing those things because he was testing him. Now as I said before dogs do these things but this had no business here and Brian licking Stewies' butt and Stewie enjoying it made me puke. Stewie was really stupid and Brian was so pathetic especially when he pierced Stewies' ear. I couldn't believe he had a gun. A gun?!!! And wanting to commint suicide because he thought his life had no meaning? He has a home and people who love him and isn't that good enough. What happened to the genus Stewie? He was horribe in this and enjoying being licked in the butt was so low. They should have used a differant pair. Peter and Meg would have been awesome because it would have great to work more on the father and daugther realationship. How far can you go with a dog and a baby? Listening to Seth for 30 minutes was so unbearable it would have been great if were him and another cast member and not making this a solo episode. Brian and Stewie were boring in this one and Peter and Meg would have been a perfect balance of comedy and drama. Seth, work more on the relationships between the other main characters and not just a dog and a baby. Give these 2 a rest.moreless

  • 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!

    • 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.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • 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.
