Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Great episode

  • Great superb episode of Family Guy!

    After Lois' aunt dies from a heart attack,she gives Lois her Cherrywood Mansion,and the whole family moves from Quahog to Cherrywood and everybody starts acting different from all the money they've inherited.

    Although the episode is sugary sweet junkfood,it is very tasty. A great start to season 2.
  • Perfect start for season 2 of FG

    Lois' Aunt dies and leaves her the Cherrywood Mansion. The family moves in to the new mansion in Newport only to lose their fortune after Peter makes an extravagant purchase at a charity auction. This episode was perfect. One of the best episodes I've seen from the early seasons. Almost everything were great and hilarious. I laughed/liked Peter complaining about Lois' aunt, then she suddenly dies, the song (a tad long though but I would rather hear this song than to hear Mr. Booze), most of the cutaways, Stewie's appearance (once again, very funny), Brian's part when he was drunk, Brian saying "I'm your father," to Peter, and a few others. Overall score 10/10. WAY better than Lottery Fever, which reuses this episode's idea.moreless
  • Perfect Season 2 premiere.

    Lois' Aunt dies and leaves her the Cherrywood Mansion. The family moves in to the new mansion in Newport only to lose their fortune after Peter makes an extravagant purchase at a charity auction.

    What I liked- "WHO SAID MARGUARETE??", Margurete unexpectly dying, the "This House is Freakin' Sweet" song, Peter dancing with Margurete's dead body then dropping her and saying "Oh my god, she's dead."

    A perfect episode

  • great

    Lois' aunt gives her the Cherrywood Mansion, and Peter reveals that he sold their old house so they could move in the mansion for good. But Peter, and the children, start acting really spoiled, and all Lois wants is for things to go back to the way they were.

    Decent episode. The song was the best part, probably, and I liked Peter embarrassing Lois at dinner, and Brian trying to help Peter become a sophisticated man. Somewhere near the end though I lost interest and got kind of bored. But for the most part this was a pretty good episode, my final grade is a B- or so.moreless

    • Star Trek episode "Amok Time"

      When Stewie orders the two servents to fight to the death, they imitate Spock and Kirk from this episode, using nearby items as substitutes for the weapons. Also one servent slices the other's shirt across the chest just as Spock did to Kirk, as the Star Trek fight music plays.

    • Peter: Bon Jovi, everyone!

      This is a reference to the rock star Jon Bon Jovi.

    • Star Wars

      When Brian is talking to Peter about Star Wars, he is referencing the events in Star Wars, Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back.

    • Press Your Luck

      Peter: Come on, Big Bucks Big Bucks, No Whammies...Stop!
      There was a game show in the 80s Called "Press Your Luck" and remade in 2003 called "Whammy." Contestants would watch the gameboard where it had squares with cash amounts and prizes, and also squares called "Whammies." The contestants would also try to get the prizes and avoid the whammy. They would say 'big bucks, no Whammies, stop!' then press a red 'stop' button, which would stop the gameboard on a square.

      Peter: One hundred million dollars.
      A reference to Dr Evil's trademark statement about money and the subsequent raising of his pinky.
