  • I did not approve of this episode.


    It was not as horrifically repellant as some, which actually made me question whether I wanted to watch the show anymore, but it was still unpleasant veiwing ... specifically, this scene (Warning, spoilers, admittedly implied by the episode summary):

    After Carter falls asleep at the wheel and causes a multi-car pile up, Joe shows up at the hospital to revoke his driver's license. Lois' reaction? "Please, Joe, can't you just look the other way?"

    Really? Really, Lois? Your father just nearly killed himself, your mother, and your infant son, and you still think he should drive? Oh, and all those other people in the car crash, too. And your first reaction is "oh no, please don't take away his license"?

    If that's an accurate sample of your parenting, (and from the rest of the series, yeah, it is,) no wonder Stewie hates you enough to be matricidal. Or have you finally noticed, and now you're trying to kill him first? After all, who would be callous enough to imply that the woman who just lost her parents and youngest child in a car wreck secretly wanted one or more ofthem dead?

    Lois Pewterschmidt-Griffin, you are a terrible mother, a terrible daughter, and an irresponsible citizen.
