    I like Stewie thinking he's getting put back in the womb on his first birthday. But it does have some Peter funny moments, such as his lie to Lois about Cheesy Charlie's. Overall, great episode. Seth Macfarlane should do more episodes like this
  • Hysterically funny and original with complete absurdity!

    Oh boy! The Stewie plot in this episode was just hysterical. I loved it! The Meg plot was good nothing brilliant but the Stewie plot certainly makes this a hilarious episode. Along with some classical Peter and Brian moments, this easily makes for my favorite season 1 episode thus far
  • One of the better episodes of Season 1.

    Peter allows Meg to go to a party with her new friend. This angers Lois because it's the same day as Stewie's birthday, and she wants the whole family to be together. What Meg doesn't know is that she's actually attending a cult meeting. Peter then comes to pick up Meg. However, the cult leader follows. Stewie believes him to be the "Man in White", trying to return him to the womb. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Family Guy". One of the best Season 1 episodes that I've ever seen. Not only was this episode very funny and well written by the writers really made it feel original and a classic. A lot of parts in this episode were original and classic that made the episode to be fantastic and super funny. Stewie's part throughout this entire episode was hilarious and tons and tons and tons of more parts made me laugh so hard that I can't even tell all of them. A great "Stewie's first birthday" storyline for all of the fans to really enjoy. Overall, an excellent episode of "Family Guy" that felt very original and classic in my opinion... fans definitely need to watch this episode. 10/10moreless
