  • Meg gets in a coma

    After Quahog is hit by a flood, Meg winds up in the hospital in a coma. When she wakes up and sees a cute med student, they immediately hit it off. Overprotective of his daughter, Peter is determined to drive the med student away. That is until Meg reveals that she is pregnant. I liked the subplot here better. The main plot was alright, but it was the best. My score was lower because Peter was a little jerk to Meg about refusing to see Michael again (he STILL treats her crap after this episode...no wonder why he is so idiotic) and the last few minutes was boring to watch. I only laughed a few times in the main plot. I laughed at the subplot more harder like the mouse (Mickey Mouse obviously) being heard on the background, the over part (funniest part ever in this episode), and then Brian and Stewie escape the house as it explodes a lot of times which reminds in the action movies. Overall score: 8.5/10moreless
  • After Meg almost died from being in a coma, Peter becomes nicer to Meg and becomes overprotective of her

    After Quahog is hit by a flood, Meg winds up in the hospital in a coma. When she wakes up and sees a cute med student, they immediately hit it off. Overprotective of his daughter, Peter is determined to drive the med student away. That is until Meg reveals that she is pregnant. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Family Guy". I thought everything about this episode was hilarious except for the last couple of minutes with Michael running out on Meg after she told him that she is NOT pregnant and then a Conway Twitty video to end the episode. Other than that problem, this episode was excellent. I laughed hard at so many parts. Meg and Michael being on their date and Peter disguised as a Chinese guy to spy on Meg was drop dead hilarious to me. Everything about the Brian/Stewie subplot cracked me up as well such as hearing the mouse humping, Stewie telling Brian that he still needs to say "over" on the walkie-talkie even though Brian used "over" in a sentence or something like that and then Brian pulls the wire with Stewie falling to the ground, and more. The ending to the plot with Stewie exploding the house was funny and awesome. Of couse, the Officer Nasty scene made me LOL. The Flintstones cutaway was very funny. Peter talking to Michael so he can approve also gave me a good laugh. I also laughed hard when Peter was standing to Connie by hitting her against the fire extinguisher until she bleeds to death... it was dark humor but it was sure as hell funny in my opinion at least. More parts made me laugh as well. Overall, the storyline and the humor was excellent... the last couple of minutes of the episode was the reason why I didn't give it a 10 though but it was hilarious to watch for the most part and it was really nice to see Peter actually be nice to Meg after realizing that he only has one daughter and after when Meg almost died from a coma. 9.5/10moreless

  • Peter's Daughter

    10
    I was glad that Peter realized that his abuse of Meg is wrong and that he should protect his daughter. I absolutelly loved the scene where Peter ****ed Connie's **** up! Meg being pregnant was funny!



    I hate how Lois didn't want to say that she loved Meg. As many have pointed out, in Season 1, Meg was treated as a regular member of the family. She was respected, accepted, and loved. I just hate the abuse she faces everyday from everyone. The end proved Michael or whatever his name was didn't really care for Meg. He can go die for just running out on Meg like that. Overall, great episode, I just wished the NO MORE Meg abuse would of stayed permantly.moreless

      Lois: Meg, honey, are you sure you want to go through with this? You know, there are other options.
      Meg: Mom, for the last time, I am not getting an abortion!
      Lois: Well, I don't mean an abortion per se, but, maybe you just drink and smoke a lot.
      Meg: What?!
      Lois: Just don't start doing in and then chicken out halfway through the pregnancy, because then you'll wind up with Chris.
      Peter: (enters, carrying a three-layered cake) Okay, Lois, I got the cake. Oh - and they were all out of the bride and groom figurines, so I got the Iron Giant and a courtroom doll that kids use to show where the molester touched them.

    • Lois: Peter, Meg's been down there an awfully long time.
      Peter: Boy, you cannot wait to criticise her at every turn, can you, Lois?

    • Stewie: (about Meg's wedding dress) Look at her fat shoulders in those spaghetti straps. It's like bread baking around twine!

    • Peter: That's an even more beautiful sight than 72 virgins waiting in heaven for a suicide bomber.

    • Stewie: Alright Brian, I'm gonna go up to the upper level and run this wire down through the wall. Grab your walkie, I'll call you when I get up there.
      Brian: Okay.
      (Stewie walks away, is heard over the walkie-talkie)

      Brian: No.
      Stewie: Nooooo what? Over.

      Stewie: Didn't copy that. Over.
      Brian: I said why did ya ask me if I could see it if you haven't started feeding it. Over.

      Brian: You know, you're a jackass. For the record, I don't wanna hang out with you anymore when this is over.

    • Lois: Wow Peter, I gotta say, you've really been true to your word about treating Meg better.
      Peter: She's my only daughter, Lois. She needs to be protected, like a rare gemstone, or the herniated scrotum of an older gentleman.

    • Brian: This is disgusting. It smells, it's falling apart, and you can hear the mice humping in the walls.

    • Dr. Hartman: Mr. and Mrs. Griffin, I'm afraid your coma's in a daughter. (laughs) I mean, I mean your daughter's in a coma. What? Oh my God, did you hear what I said? (waggles tounge) Brain freeze! Oh my god. Oh, that one is going in the Christmas letter.

      (Cuts to Hell. The Devil is scaring dogs with a vacuum cleaner)

  • NOTES (1)

    • This is the second episode that was aired by FOX without final approval from Seth MacFarlane, who was on strike with the Writers Guild of America at the time of the original airing.

  • ALLUSIONS (9)

    • The Flintstones.

      There is a scene with Fred and Wilma requesting a divorce and arguing.

    • Hurricane Katrina:

      The scene in which Cleveland is evacuated to the stadium is a reference to the people who took shelter in the Louisiana Superdome during this hurricane.

    • Mickey Mouse

      When Brian says the house they buy is so old you can hear the mice humping in the walls, we hear the high-pitched laughter of Mickey Mouse.

    • Flip That House

      When Brian and Stewie are fixing up the run-down house, it is a possible reference to the TLC show Flip This House, where real-estate investors fix up run-down houses to earn profit.

    • Hee Haw

      At the end of the episode, Peter introduces Conway Twitty. It cuts to a performance of him on the TV show Hee Haw. This joke previously occured in the episode "Bill and Peter's Bogus Journey."

    • JD and Turk:
      When Michael comes in to check on Meg, Peter asks if "Scrubs" and "Black Scrubs" work there. He is referring to Dr. John "JD" Dorian (played by Zach Braff) and Dr. Christopher "Turk" Turk (played by Donald Faison), respectively, characters on the TV Show Scrubs.

    • Aliens

      When Peter tells Meg that he will not treat her like an Alien, a flashback goes to Ripley and Newt running throughout LV-426 (planet) and are met by the queen.

    • Iron Giant

      Peter had put an Iron Giant figurine from the movie of the same name on a wedding cake he made for Meg.

    • Fanta Commercials

      The Sanka commercial with the dancing old ladies is a reference to an old Fanta commercial that featured dancing women.
