  • Doesn't every dog have his day?

    This episode was a very good Brian-based one and has some terrific lines from Stewie, Brian and Peter and great scenes such as the dog show and how Peter and Brian met.

    Some of the best Family Guy lines are from this season one finale including:
    Dog show host: Next up is Peter Griffin with his dog, Brain.
    Brian: Well, we're off to a good start.

    and Peter trying to get Brian to eat a dog biscuit off his nose.

    The court scene was very amusing with the judges realising "why are we listening to a dog?"

    Overall, the whole episode is a very good plot but there are a couple of scenes with few jokes.
