  • Absolutely horrible! I want my 30 minutes back!

    2.5
    This was absolutely one of the worst episodes of Family Guy I have ever seen! The only things that saved me from giving this episode a 1 was everyone in the Family Guy universe coming to see Meg's boyfriend, and Carter pointing a gun at Meg while she was driving.



    Now, let's get to some of the downfalls of this episode. Stewie getting Brian to put his hand on his penis was absolutely disgusting. The plot was repetitive, with the writers using something from Season 3, and Stewie dressing up as a girl and acting effeminate (if I spelled that correctly), which he did in "Boys Do Cry", which was all the way back in Season 5.



    The B-plot with Peter, Lois, Meg, and her normal boyfriend was even worse. What Lois did to Meg's boyfriend was completely unforgivable. I know that Peter made her feel bad about her age, but that was no reason to cheat on him with her daughter's boyfriend. The old Lois from seasons 1-3 wouldn't even think twice about doing something like that. Lois has officially gone from a caring mother to a nasty woman, who gets thrills out of cheating on her own husband. And Meg ripping out her tooth was absolutely disgusting. Whoever thought of this plot should have been fired. If you want to save yourself 30 minutes of torture, you'd be better off avoiding this episode.



    Final Grade: 2.5/10 (obviously an F).moreless

    7.0
    what i liked- the ending with stewie saying he was a normal boy, who happens to be a tranvestite (and that transvestite was the "t" word of the day), lois making out with meg's boyfriend, peter and lois making up, amongst other things.

    this was alright. really not one of my favorite episodes or anything. some of it was really weird (brian and stewie in the restaurant for instance, with brian thinking stewie as a girl), and also meg ripping out her tooth. the rest was fairly good though. C- or so seems about right for this episodemoreless

    When Brian tries to put Stewie's hand on his penis, that was just absolutely disturbing and disgusting.



    1 out of 10 is my final score. F
  • NOT a bunch of laughs from me in this episode but I thought it was well written so it deserved credit for that.

    9.0
    I thought that this was a superb episode of "Family Guy". It definitely wasn't the funniest episode I've ever seen but I really liked the stories in this episode so I'll give Seth MacFarlane credit for at least writing a well written episode. I didn't have a bunch of laughs in this episode. I only laughed three times and one chuckle along with it. The first funny scene was Cleveland's cameo appearance when he said "This was so worth driving 500 miles" because everyone in Quahog was shocked that Meg is going out with a normal guy. The second funny scene was when Stewie (who dressed up as a girl to be in a show) was watching his show and it was a Sesame Street reference. The third funny scene was the cutaway with Carter pointing his gun at Meg while she is driving and then Meg pointing Carter's gun at him (which makes her nervous). The one scene I chuckled at was the cameo appearance with Mayor West when he said "Hahaha, What?". There were no more laughs after that. I didn't like the Jesus cutaway... that was a cutaway that Seth MacFarlane could have taken out. Stewie dressing up as a girl wasn't funny but it was interesting to see and it was nice to see that he had a crush on the girl along the way. The only thing I didn't like was when Lois was making out with Meg's boyfriend. Come on, I know Peter didn't make her feel special in that episode but that was no reason to do that especially if it betrays her own daughter. Overall, I didn't get a whole bunch of laughs in this episode but it was overall superb. 9/10moreless
  • Uninteresting and pointless.

    3.0
    I wasn't impressed with this episode. I didn't like either of the storylines.



    The main plot with Stewie was quite mediocre. The plot was repetitive, and I didn't like the fact that they revisited an old theme from season three. It made the story feel unoriginal. The only joke that I liked was the fan mail sack gag, and even that was far-fetched. I was really bored throughout, and I was wondering, what was the point of this? I didn't enjoy this part of the episode.



    The Peter and Lois story was even worse. I liked the idea of Meg having a "normal boyfriend", but the whole thing about Lois being attracted to him wrecked it. I was actually offended by some of the dialogue here, and I did not need to know that Bonnie had an affair. Nothing happened here.



    All I have to left to say, is that this episode was painful to watch, and I expected better.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Stewie: (pretending to be a woman to Brian) You have no idea how long it's been since I've been touched by a man.
      Brian: And you have no idea how long it's been since I've been touched by a woman. (long pause, Brian guides Stewie's hand under the table)
      Stewie: Brian-Bri-BRIAN! It's me it's Stewie!
      Brian: (outraged slams Stewie against the seat) WHAT THE F**K IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?

    • Meg: You kissed my boyfriend! How are we supposed to get past that?
      Lois: I don't know, sweetheart, but I am so, so sorry. It was an awful thing that I did; I never meant to steal him from you.
      Meg: (incredulous Is that what you think? You stole him from me? Are you kidding? You couldn't steal him from me.
      Lois: (a little amused) Well, I do know a few things, Meg, and clearly if I wanted him I could have him.
      Meg: You really think you stand a chance? Look at you! You're old! You're nothing! You couldn't even imagine the things I do for him. And this isn't about making out. This is about power tools. I do things for him that you couldn't get back from. I'll do anything! You don't know me! (pulls out one of her own teeth)
      Lois: Oh my god!
      Meg: (throws the tooth at Lois) He hangs me from the shower rod by your old bras and then we laugh at you. Now get out of my room!
      Lois: (backs away and speaks in a placating tone) Well, when you're ready to talk...

    • Randall: Quiet on the set! I'm trying to rehearse!
      Julie: It's okay. Randall's just getting into character.
      Stewie: (as Karina) Is he playing a dick?

    • Peter: Lois, I don't mind you getting old, just don't force it down my throat.
      Lois: Screw yuo, Peter.
      Peter: Maybe you will, but not today! (laughs)
