  • Just as fun as the first part.

    9.0
    I wouldn't really call this a sequel to The Thin White Line cause it doesn't really have the same storyline except for Brian going to Hollywood which its taking place a few months after Brian's encounter with cocaine but I love this episode so I can't really give it crap.
  • The Griffin goes to Hollywood.

    The Griffin family learns Brian has gone to Hollywood. After trying out on Kids Say the Darndest Things, Stewie is awarded an appearance, and the Griffins get a free trip to Los Angeles. Brian doesn't want the family to know what he's really doing in Hollywood, and tries to cover it up. This episode was a conclusion of the previous episode. I think this episode isn't that good than Thin White Line, but I still enjoyed it. Brian's plot was getting boring though. I did like Stewie's plot in this episode. funny parts includes Tom (and Jake) Tucker's appearance, Quagmire's phone call, Stewie thinking Peter is 7, the interview, and a couple more.moreless

    I really only liked the Stewie plot, Brian's plots are always so f-cking boring

    What i liked: Stewie saying daddy is seven, Meg almost being in the porno Brian was making, Bill Cosby and Stewie on Kids Say The Darndest Thins, amongst other things.



    This episode was ok. It had an OK plot but it did not really have many good jokes, i did not think, which obviously hurts the episode to me. It was OK enough to get a low C as a grade, i think is fair for this episodemoreless
  • Season 3, Episode 2.

    9.5
    I really liked this episode. :) Family Guy always impresses me, especially with this episode. I loved what Stewie said to Lois. "Wipe my with one finger by moving it in a circular motion, and don't you look at me!" LMAO! I liked when Peter swallowed his cell phone. Then Peter made him open his mouth to hear the song that was playing. Brian's first job in Hollywood is directing a pornographic movie! Haha! Meanwhile, Stewie is on Kids Say The Darndest Things. Haha, I love Stewie so much. Seth MacFarlane is a comic genius. Great episode. Not that that is surprising...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In Latin America, the translating voice of Peter calls Jenna Jameson, "Pamela Anderson", when they're on the plane. However, during the rest of the episode, she's called "Jenna Jameson".

    • While the dresser was fixing Stewie's hair, one shot was showing their reflections through the mirror. The dresser had the comb in his left hand and the spray in his right hand, while the reflection shows them in the opposite hands.

    • Continuity: In the episode "Brian does Hollywood", as Lois, Peter, and Stewie wait for the "Kids Say..." auditions, Peter's clothes change from a blue suit, to a grey suit, and then to his normal clothing.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Jasper: You like sex in the city?
      Brian: I don't watch that show.
      Jasper: I wasn't talking about the show. Ooh, I'm nasty! (Imitates foghorn) Someone put me out to sea!

    • (The cellphone rings inside Peter. He punches himself in the stomach)
      Peter: Hello, this is Peter Griffin.
      Quagmire: Hey Peter. I had sex with a black chick last night! (as Quagmire says this, a black couple walk past Peter. He punches himself in the stomach.)
      Woman: What? All he said was black chick.
      Peter: Yeah I know, but your boyfriend looks like one of those typical angry black guys. Hey, we cool G? We cool? We cool, huh? (he offers his hand to the black guy, who shakes it uncomfortably

    • Stewie: Look at me, having sex with a pig! I've become my father!

    • (The cell phone in Peter's stomach rings.)
      Woman: Hello, I'm looking for Peter Griffin.
      Peter: You're in him.

    • Stewie: Easy! Massage the scalp. You're washing a baby's hair, not scrubbing vomit off your Christmas dress, you holiday drunk.

    • Bill Cosby: Stewie, what do you think candy is made out of?
      Stewie: Sunshine and farts! What the hell kind of question is that?!

    • Stewie: I was under the impression the name of the show was "Kids Say the Darnest Things," not "Old Black Comedians Never Shut the Hell Up."

    • Director: (to Lois) You got a nice wiggle, baby. You wanna be in a movie, huh? A little girl/girl action maybe?
      Lois: (gasps and nudges Peter) Peter!
      Peter: Good luck buddy, I've been barkin' up that tree for 17 years.

    • Producer: It's kind of like 'Bang the Drum Slowly', except the drum's a chick.

  • NOTES (3)

    • When Peter is put on hold by the telemarketer, who is talking to him on the phone through his stomach, music begins to play. The hit-song that was playing was "Looks Like We Made It" by Barry Manilow.

    • During the Adult Video Awards, Walter Murphy and Ron Jones are named as nominees for best score. Both are composers for Family Guy. Walter had a moment of pop stardom in 1976 with the song "A Fifth of Beethoven".

    • Brian's Woody Award has been digitally blurred out, on TV as well as DVD Versions of this episode.

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • That '70s Show
      Brian says that every car he washes comes with a script of his new coming of age comedy set in Wisconsin, which is the description of That '70s Show.

    • Manson Family

      Peter reveals that he hadn't been to California since he lived with his other family. In the clip that follows, we see Peter entering the hideout where Charles Manson and his followers lived. The bearded guy in the middle is meant to be Charles Manson.

      Peter also says "guys I just got invited to a party in Sharon Tate's house. Now you guys can come, but you have to promise not to embarrass me." This refers to 1 August 1969 when the Manson family went on a murderous rampage and brutally killed pregnant actress Sharon Tate and her famous house guests.

    • Rodney King
      Peter having the LAPD to beat him while his wife videotapes it is a not-so-subtle reference to the 1992 beating of Rodney King, which was videotaped by a bystander.

    • American Pie
      When a crewman from the movie asks Meg how long she can hold her breath, she starts to say, "One time at Hatch Pond..." This is a reference to the most notorious line in the movie American Pie, where Michelle begins one of her stories with, "This one time at band camp..."

    • Peter: You're gonna love it back at our house, Jenna Jameson.
      After Lois comments on how everyone has something to remember the trip by, Peter is seen sitting next to a bound-up Jenna Jameson. Clearly, Peter is taking home the famous porn star.


    • "Kids Say The Darndest Things" is a show featuring Bill Cosby. It's pretty much exactly as it is on Family Guy .

    • Announcer: ...And John Williams!
      John Williams is an award-winning composer who has written scores for dozens of movies, including "Star Wars," "Jaws" and "Jurassic Park."

    • Brian: Wow, Keanu Reeves. Forgive me, I normally don't gush... Wait ... there's a woodpecker on your head.
      This is a jab at Keanu Reeves. After his role in Bill and Ted he began to develop an undeserved reputation as an idiot, to fit with his character. A side note, Keanu is not the kind of man who would be at a party like this. He is far more solitary, and prefers to be writing and performing music with his friends.
