Episode Summary

EDIT
Due to Brian's embarrassing flea problem, the Griffin's move into a hotel while the house if fumigated. Lois and Peter soon discover that Chris has been skipping gym class because he's self-conscious about his body. Peter tries to talk Chris into getting liposuction, while Lois starts preparing him special low fat meals. Stewie starts taunting Chris by eating everything in sight, and starts packing on the baby fat. Even though Chris isn't up for surgery, Peter decides to go for it. The new, svelte Peter has Lois all hot and bothered. Peter loves the results of his lipo and decides to have some work done on his face. The new, handsome Peter starts getting all sorts of special treatment: at the gym, at the grocery store, even from total strangers.

Unable to take his eyes off himself, Peter plunges his car over a cliff. The nasty fall - and subsequent crash-landing into a large vat of lard - leaves him horribly disfigured (ie: back to normal).moreless

An excellent episode. Definitly of the best Family Guy episodes (both the show and pre-cancelation) I' ve seen. I liked almost everything in this episode. Although the beginning was a bit slow, but I kinda the scene where the guys shoot the fleas. Parts I laughed were "I need an adult " gag, Stewie's role through out the entire episode (especially when he was fat), Peter sticking his thumb, Chris trying to excerise by losing weight, Meg's part (was funny because she wanted to be like Peter), and a few more. Overall, an excellent and hilarious Family Guy episode...watched it for like 10 times already...including last week. 10/10moreless

    What I liked:

    -The cop thinking Chris had hams

    - I NEED AN ADULT! I NEED AN ADULT

    - Telling Peter You cant park your van on the divingboard

    -the exterminators

    -The guy pointing to chris asking Peter "what's that?"

    what i liked- the lemonade standcutaway, fat stewie, stewie trying to get the ice cream in his mouth, brian spinning stewie around and around, the cop thinking chris was stealing something, the guy at the pool telling peter to move his car (or jeep or whatever it was, point is the line was funny), amongst other things.

    it was pretty good. however, the ending felt really rushed. the episode, as a whole is pretty good, but peter all of a sudden being distracted by himself, and crashing, and then reverting back to his old shape and form seemed rushed to me, as well as the final line of the episode. so, because of all of this, final grade is an A- or so. Only thing stopping it from being perfect is the last few minutes/seconds feeling rushedmoreless
  • Very funny

    When The griffin's house becomes infested with fleas, they must move into a hotel until the fleas are gone. Chris becomes embarrased with his weight, so Lois starts preparing him healthy meals, and he starts exercising. Stewie starts mocking Chris, by eating everything in sight, and he soon becomes overweight. Cleveland suggests that Chris should get liposuction to remove the fat. Chris dosn't want to, but Peter gets it and becomes skinny. he soon gets more surgery, and becomes very buff. After falling off a cliff, he becomes fat again, and says he didn't learn a lesson.



    This was a great epsiode, with Stewie being a jerk to Chris, and him eating the ice cream. I also loved Peter yelling "I need an adult!"

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The large blue insect atop Quahog Pest Control is a tribute to Nibbles Woodaway (aka "The Big Blue Bug"), the giant blue termite mascot of Rhode Island-based exterminator Big Blue Bug Solutions (formerly New England Pest Control).  The bug has become a Rhode Island landmark, and is visible from Interstate 95.

    • When Peter is in the hospital, Stewie has somehow lost all of his weight with no explanation.

    • In the scene at the hotel pool where Peter mentions his ancestor Jabba Griffin, Lois is barefoot, but when we cut back to them a couple of seconds later, she's wearing shoes.

    • When Peter is in line at the supermarket, he has his glasses on. After yelling "I need an adult! I need an adult!" his glasses disappear. The cartoonists probably realized that "attractive Peter" doesn't wear glasses and didn't draw them in from that point on.

    • When Chris is swimming with the fish and the bear grabs him and shakes him side to side, the side to side motion is not in sync with the reflection of them in the water.

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Little girl: But mister, I need real money. I cant take a credit card.
      Peter: Oh, I see, cash only huh? No paper trail huh? What are you selling, refer, crack, smack, horse, ex, shrooms, dust, meth, in my neighborhood?!? I dont think so!
      (Peter destroys lemonade stand while girls runs away crying.)

    • Lois: Okay, meatloaf for us, and a very special, very delicious, steamed vegetable dish for Chris.
      Chris: Ohhh. (Takes a bite) It tastes like a monkey.A monkey that's past it's prime!

    • (At the pool)
      Lois: Jump in, sweetie! The turtle will protect you!
      Stewie: I'm supposed to entrust my life to a turtle?! Nature's "D" student?

    • Lois: Peter, did you get a new buttocks?
      Peter: I had to. My old one had a crack in it.

    • Stewie: (About Thin Peter) My god, it's finally happened! He's become so massive he's collapsed into himself, like a neutron star!

    • Stewie: Damn you ice cream, come to my mouth! How dare you disobey me!

    • (Security Guard talking to Chris)
      Security Guard: You're not a shoplifter. You're just a fat kid. Sorry about that, Fatty Fat Fatty. Hey, Tom, he's just a fat kid! Aren't you, Fatty? You're just a big old fat kid. Here's some chocolate, Fatso.
      Chris: Thanks.

    • Handsome Peter: Knock knock!
      Brian: Hey, pal, you can't just walk in here without - holy crap, it's Peter.
      Chris: Dad, you're pretty, like a girl.

    • Guard: Excuse me sir, you can't park your van on the diving board.
      Peter: That's not a van! That's my son.

    • Girl: But mister, I need real money. I can't take a credit card.
      Peter: Oh, cash only, huh? No paper trail? What are you peddling? Crack? Smack? Reefer? X? Shrooms? Dust? Meth? In my neighbourhood? I don't think so!
      (Peter smashes the lemonade stand)

    • Peter: Wow, when you're beautiful, doors magically open for you!
      Beautiful People's Club Man: Actually, it opened because you stepped on that black square. [Pause] Of course if that wasn't there, it would have opened anyway because you're beautiful.

    • Cleveland: If you're this desperate about Chris's weight, why don't you just suck the fat out?
      Peter: Look, if you can find a hole on the boy that you want to put your lips on, be my guest.

    • Lois: Did you paste your picture over our wedding portrait?
      Peter: Yeah, I think it looks better.
      Lois: You pasted it over mine.
      Peter: Yeah, I think it looks better.

    • Lois: I hate what you become! Why don't you go back to that doctor and tell him to suck the fat out of your head?
      Peter: Maybe I will, and then I'll put it on my feet and skate on Paul Bunyan's skillet to cook his flapjacks.
      Lois: That doesn't make any sense!
      Peter: It doesn't have to, Lois, I'm beautiful!

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (11)

    • Stewie: This must be where Wilford Brimley was strangled by Bob Crane!

      Wilford Brimley became well-known for being in Quaker Oatmeal commercials. Bob Crane, best known for playing Hogan from Hogan's Heroes, also had been involved in numerous sexual acts. However, Stewie gets it mixed up, as Bob Crane was mysteriously beaten to death in an apartment then had an electrical cord wrapped around his neck.

    • Jabba The Griffin

      Jabba The Griffin is an obvious parody of the Star Wars Character Jabba The Hutt.

    • "He's Too Sexy for His fat" is a parody of a line from Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy," like "I'm too sexy for my shirt."

    • Stewie (in the pool): "This is marvelous! I feel like a young Johnny Weissmuller!"
      Johnny Weissmuller was one of the world's best swimmers in the 1920s, winning five Olympic gold medals and one bronze medal. After his swimming career, he went on to become the best-known actor to portray Tarzan in films, a role he played in twelve motion pictures.

    • The scene where the exterminators arrive at the house is a parody of the mobilization scene from "S.W.A.T." (1975) where the officers gear up and get in the truck. This is seen in the opening credits of the show and throughout the series whenever they get a call.

    • Stewie: Damn you Mop & Glo!
      Stewie slips on the floor and exclaims "Damn you, Mop & Glo!", a reference to a floor waxing product known for making your floor slick and shiny.

    • Brian: Oh, did Orson fall down?
      Orson Welles was the butt of many fat jokes. Orson fall down was a reference to Stewies weight problem that progressed during the episode.

    • Brian: I'll have what he's having
      After Stewie says the meatloaf tastes orgasmic, he fakes an orgasm, just like in "When Harry Met Sally". When he's finished, Brian (like the customer at the diner) say "I'll have what he's having

    • Peter: Can't look away... too beautiful.
      This is a referance to the greek myth of Narcissus. In the myth Narcissus is a beautiful man to whom all the women and girls are attracted to. Aphrodite the goddes of love decides that he is too arrogant so she curses him to fall in love with himself when he is taking a drink from a pool. When he gets ready to leave he looks to his reflection and becomes entrances in it. He gazed at his image not eating or drinking until he died of starvation.

    • Stewie: Hooverville
      Hoovervilles were the names given to run down houses and shacks people lived in during the Great Depression. They were named after president Hoover, who was blamed for the problems that led to the depression.

    • Stewie: I picked this up from that yummy exoskelleton Maria Shriver.
      Maria Shriver is a long-time host of Dateline, and they did do tests using an Ultraviolet light in hotel rooms to reveal hidden stains.
