    Lois discovers that Chris has some bad information about sex and she volunteers to teach a sex-ed class at the high school. Some parents become upset with her brutal honesty, and they have her replaced. A conservative christian comes to Quahog and gets rid of the condoms at James Woods High. As a result the kids find an interesting loophole. Meanwhile Stewie, terrified of the Tooth Fairy, decides to set traps to destroy him. This one was not my cup of tea. I never enjoyed that much but there were funny parts. Only a few parts were funny in the main plot. Again, cutaways here are funny and saves the main plot from being lame. Subplot was much enjoyable and funnier. I absolutely has no problems with that plot. Overall, this was a decent episode in which the storyline should have been better. 7.5/10moreless

    "Once you go black, you go deaf." LMAO! I loved that line! Lois catches Chris watching a porno ("Genital Hospital! LMAO!) with Stewie and some friends and tells him he should ask the Sex. Ed. teacher, and he tells her that they don't have one, so she becomes the sexual education teacher. So, kids at James Polk High School (including Meg) begin having sex in the ear! LMAO! Then Peter tries to do that with Lois! Haha! I loved the whole Grimmace thing. Hehe, Seth MacFarlane is an awesome writer. But Peter, who's married, being abstinent. It's still hilarious though. Plus, Meg's boyfriend dumped her after seeing her naked. Haha, good episode.moreless
  • Best of the new season.

    9.4
    This episode was great. I marked this one down as a favorite when I saw that David Cross was going to be on it, and when we first learned the story line from the folks at comic con. There were some really great scenes in this one, from the Airplane! gag, to Peter's "It was on my crotch!" line, I was actually laughing almost all the way through this episode. Something that I could not say for a while there. I sincerely hope that this is a good sign for things to come. I hope the folks that think Cherry Chevapravatdumrong was a bad writer change their minds now.moreless

    lois teaches sex ed at the high school, but other parents complain about how she is teaching it.



    stewie tries to kill the tooth fairy after horror tales he was told by brian. but in the end he learns there is no tooth fairy. or is there..?



    this was an OK episode, but not one of their greatest. It wasn't very funny but it did have a somewhat OK premise. my overall grade for this episode is somewhere between a C+ and B-, which is what I usually give because I find it fair, it could do worse, could do bettermoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Stewie's toy of Starscream is wrong colors. In this episode it is Blue and Yellow, however the proper colors for Star Scream are White and Red and Blue, the one in this episode more or less looks closer to Thundercracker.

    • Stewie's Spongebob Squarepants toy is green rather then the usual yellow that Spongebob is. Also he is wearing a bow tie, but in the show Spongebob wears a regular tie.

    • This is the first episode where Meg gets a steady boyfriend, but loses him after he sees her nude, for which Meg blames Lois.

    • The blond girl in pink bikini that appears in the porn movie Chris, Stewie and his friends watch is in fact the same girl who is in Peter's class on how to deal with money problems.

    • Waiting in line to "console" Stewie are: Cleveland holding a wrench, Mayor West holding a machine gun, Herbert holding a magnum revolver, The Evil Monkey holding a bat, Dr. Hartman holding a knife, and The Kool-Aid Guy wearing a pair of boxing gloves.

    • After Stewie cuts down Brian, the rope wrapped around Brian's foot suddenly disappears.

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Peter: (After Sex) Ah, that was great. Where'd you get that tatoo on your lower back?
      Lois: I dunno, Peter. Meth is a hell of a drug.

    • (Tooth Fairy walks into his apartment. There is a large pile of teeth in the middle)
      Tooth Fairy: (Smells the pile) Aaaah.... (Jumps into the pile) F**K YEAH!

    • Stewie: (playing with his toys) I say, look at this, this toy has small parts, why the devil would they include small parts? Unless .. I'm supposed to eat them, of-course it all adds up.
      (Stewie bites the toy) Oww! (spitting his tooth out) Oh dear god, I've lost a tooth.
      Chris: Dude you're lucky, if you put that under your pillow the tooth fairy will come and give you a dollar.
      Stewie: (shocked) What?? Did you say the tooth fairy comes here, to our house? She just breaks in like some hood?
      (camera pans to see Brian sitting at the table near Stewie)
      Brian: Yeah, she creeps into your house at night, and comes into your room while you sleep.
      Stewie: (shocked) Oh my god!
      Brian: And sometimes, just for the hell of it, (turns to Stewie) she cuts off a piece of her arm-pit hair and places it gently on your tongue.

    • Adam West: Damn I lost him. Alright cats, back in the bag.
      (Adam West starts putting the cats back in the bag)
      Adam West: Come one Fluffy, come on Mittens, come on Paul... (Laughing) .. What a ridiculous name for a cat, Paul..that's a person's name..a person's name (Continues laughing) ...Paul

    • Stewie: (referring to his toys) Alright men your mission tonight is to stave off the invading forces of the Tooth Fairy. SpongeBob you watch the east, StarScream you take the west, and Man-E-Faces you take center patrol since you have, many faces.

    • Young Michael Jackson: The kid in me likes the frosted side.
      Adult Michael Jackson: But the grown-up in me likes the kid in me.

    • Tom Tucker: In local news, a sexy new trend has emerged at James Woods High.
      Diane Simmons: That's right Tom, It appears that students have taken to having ear sex, in lieu of traditional intercourse.
      Tom Tucker: Over two hundred reports of ear sex have been confirmed so far, prompting a new slogan, "Once you go Black, you go deaf".

    • Lois: Look Meg, A, Ear sex is just unnatural, and B, how do I say this, vaginal intercourse is...it..its just tops! It's the bee's knees Meg. Oh, when your rattle it around just right, oh my god! I mean, you remember when we had that old car with the bad shocks, and I used to take the old dirt road on purpose! Meg! Meg?
      (pans to see Brian in the doorway)
      Brian: I love you.

    • Brian: Hey, my sandwich tastes funny. Is there something wrong with the Smuckers?
      Peter: (from another room) Yeah, its been on my crotch.

    • Lois: Peter, what the hell is this?
      Peter: My chastity belt.
      Lois: A chastity belt? What in God's name is that for?
      Peter: I'm abstinent Lois, it's all in these pamphlets Meg brought home from school. Sex turns straight people gay, and Gays into Mexicans, everyone goes down a notch.

    • Peter: (Reading from booklet) If you have sex, your penis will fall off and land in another dimension populated entirely by dogs, who will eat it. (pauses) Well that's something I'd like to avoid.

    • Announcer: We now return to Laguna Beach.
      Girl 1: Like right?
      Girl 2: I know!
      Girl 3: Whatever because, duh!
      Girl 2: I know, right?
      Girl 1: Whatever, because I mean like, totally, full out.
      Girl 2: Full on.
      Girl 3: Right?
      (returns to Peter)
      Peter: I guess it's not easy growing up anywhere.

    • Pizza Delivery Guy: Pizza for Mayor West.
      Adam West: No! You got me Canadian bacon instead of bacon? This misdeed can not go unpunished. Pizza delivery man, prepare to meet your maker, at the hands of my cat launcher.

    • Stewie: (about the tooth fairy) I have to lure her back on my terms and kill her myself! But to catch a fairy I have to think like a fairy.
      (Brian looks at the camera, and the frame pauses)
      Announcer: If you want Brian to say "Well, that'll be a stretch" text message FAMGUY1. If you want Brian to say "I'm not touchin' that one" text FAMGUY2. If you want Brian to say "¡Ariba!" and dance around a sombrero, text FAMGUY3. Enter now. (pauses, music plays for short while) Thanks for voting!
      Brian: ¡Ariba! (begins dancing around a sombrero)

    • Rev. Kirkwood: Sure, sex is fun, but ya can't have it before you're married, even if you use a condom. Because not only do condoms fail one hundred percent of the time, they're also majorly unsafe. Hey, you wouldn't put a plastic bag over your grandmother's head would ya?

    • Peter: Hey, uh Lois, I wanted to get KY Jelly for the class today, but they were all out, so I got Smuckers.

    • Peter: (to drug addicts) There's a lot of ways for you guys to save money. For example, you're all shootin' up, why not share needles? That's a no brainer. More money in your wallet, more drugs in your veins. My second piece of advice, have as many kids as you can, 'cuz that makes it more likely that one of those kids'll grow up an make it big in Hollywood. Then who's payin' the bills huh? Hollywood Kid. Class dismissed.

    • Lois: Peter, do you know that they are not teaching sex-ed at Chris's school?
      Peter: Eh, let em figure it out the way I had to. With a can of crisco and a shot glass. That's the natural way Lois, that's the natural way.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The Cartoon Network broadcast of this episode featured a few scenes and shots that were not in the FOX broadcast. A scene of an Asian woman not using her turn signal when switching over eight lanes and a shot of Peter trying to have ear sex with Lois are reinstored. Also, Peter's line "It's been on my crotch" was changed to "It's been on my Penis".
