Okay, I know this may sound a little crazy, but one scene from the episode "Dial Meg For Murder" that I really dislike is the scene where Lois indignantly talks to Meg after Brian told her and Peter about Meg and Luke. For those who of you who forget or are unfamiliar, the scene goes as follows:
Meg: Brian, you *******! How could you do this to me?!
Brian: I'm sorry, Meg. I had to tell them.
Lois: Don't give him **** for this, Meg. He did exactly the right thing by coming to us. Don't you know what kind of fire you're playing with, dating a prisoner?
Peter: Hold on, Lois. This is some serious parenting. I'm gonna go put on my Cosby sweater.
[Peter leaves to get his Cosby sweater]
Meg: Mom, you don't understand! Luke and I really connect, very deeply! He's all alone in there, and I'm all alone out here. In a way, we're both in prison!
Lois: Well, Meg, there's a big difference there. He's in prison for a reason: he broke the law.
Meg: He robbed a convenience store to pay for medication for his mom.
Lois: (slightly sarcastic) Oh, I'm sure he gave you a very convincing sob story.
Meg: (her defense growing by the second) It's not a sob story! It's true!
Lois: (near exasperated) Frankly, I don't care, Meg. I do not want you seeing him again.
Peter: [entering the room] I can't find the sweater.
Lois: (ignoring Peter) How the hell did you even meet him?
Meg: We had a pen pal project at school, and when it was over, Luke and I just kind of kept writing to each other.
Lois: Well, it stops now.
Meg: (now defensive more than ever) But, Mom, I love him!
Lois: (with firm finality) It stops now, Meg.
Peter: Your mother's right, Meg. You got to be careful who you get involved with romantically.
Now the reason I dislike this scene is because I think Lois was being a ***** about the whole thing, though some of you may say that she was only doing her duty as a parent to get through to Meg about it. Also, I believe the whole thing was Brian's fault because apparently he was being a snitch and a tattletale and shouldn't have told Lois and Peter about it, so therefore he should have kept his nose in his own business. Thus, I have no reason to believe that the whole story of Luke robbinga convenience store to pay for his mom's medication was just a sob story.Now I ask y'all a couple of questions:
1. Do you think it was really Brian's fault that Meg got in trouble with Lois and Peter?
2. Do you think Luke really robbed a convenience store to pay for his mom's medication?
And most importantly,
3. Do you think Lois was being a ***** in the scene described above?
I'll be awaiting your answers.
