    Peter and Lois go to the Pewterschmidts for the weekend, bringing Brian along. Brian, meanwhile, has some "issues" of his own to work out. Find out if Brian's future is to make puppies or become "less" than he is. I thought this was a superb episode. The plot for this episode was not bad. However, the last few minutes were a little boring and that's the reason why my score isn't a 10...I wish it was. The parts that made me laugh was the cold opening (which was like a minute and a half), Peter in a kangroo's pouch, Brian smelling the dog's butt, Peter, Carter, and Michael Esner hanging out, and a couple more parts. Overall, this episode was superb with a dragged ending. 9/10moreless
  • Brian? Dating a dog? Holy shite, it's a miracle.

    What I liked: Peter in the kangaroo's pouch, Brian putting animal food in Stewie's pocket, "He's violating Sea Breeze!" "No, he's just awkwardly positioning himself- ok NOW he's violating Sea Breeze", Carter finally having some respect for Peter, Brian sniffing that girl dog's butt, and Mort doing it (Ah, that god farted and I swallowed it!), Peter and Lois catching Brian in the bathroom, amongst other things.



    The first like 10 minutes is some of the funniest stuff I've seen on this show. I was laughing pretty much every line. The last half, with Brian trying to get custody of his puppies, only to find out they aren't his, I dunno, it just did not interest me a lot. It's a good episode but the last few minutes is kind of boring to me, and not nearly as funny as the first few minutes. Overall grade would be in the B rangemoreless
  • One of the best

    9.0
    This episode was a gold medal. Brian becomes a masterbator while Peter tries to impress Lois's father yet again for approval of being the husband lol.



    The laugh out loud parts from this episode were Stewie being chased around the farm by animals, "The world's sluttiest dogs", Peter saying "This was even worse than the time I was on Survivor" and most of all when Peter and Lois caught Brian masterbating he got the hots from kangaroo chicks.



    That was an amazing line! All of this. I cannot believe the lengths Peter would take just to get his father-in-law's approval. It was all well written and greatly presented. I'd definitely place this episode in my top ten, simply amazing. Emotional when Brian discovered his dog-girlfriend's babies were not his and someone else, someone very disgusting.



    Overall, hilarious episode, very amazing lines, and well presented. This season has been my number one out of the first three (so far).moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Brian is walking outside the Pewterschimdt mansion before he meets Sea Breeze, the tag on his collar is gone. But it is there again when Mr. Pewterschimdt calls him over to meet Sea Breeze.

    • Lois mentions a mulatto shoeshine boy in this episode. Most people don't realize the word mulatto is a Spanish/Portuguese word meaning "mule" and is a derogatory term for a person of mixed ethnicity, most commonly having an African American and white parent. One reason this term is offensive is because mules don't reproduce and therefore considered by some to be an "accident of nature" or "genetic mistake".

    • In this episode it is hinted that Meg's real father isn't Peter, but a man named Stan Thompson. This has not been mentioned again in the series and could be a one-off gag.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Man on TV: Rosebud. (The screen then cuts to Peter talking into the camera) Peter: It was his sled. It was his sled from when he was a kid. There, I just saved you two long boobless hours.

    • Peter: Brian, I am very disappointed in you. I'd turn my back on you but I've seen what do in that situation.

    • Teacher: In French, when you want to say "yes", you say "oui, oui!"
      Peter: You gotta be kidding me! Oh my god, that is hysterical. Oh, man. Hey, what do you say for "no"? "Doo Doo"? Hey, I'll be right back. I gotta go take a wicked "yes"!

    • Lawyer: Mr Griffin, which of the following two phrases best describes Brian Griffin: Problem Drinker or African-American Haberdasher?
      Peter: Uh, do I-I guess problem drinker, but that's uh-
      Lawyer: Thank-you. Now: Sexual deviant or magic picture that if you stare at it long enough, you see something?
      Peter: Well, sexual deviant, but that other one's not even, eh-
      Lawyer: Thank-you.

    • Peter: Your honor, Brian'll be a great dad. Hell, if I was half the parent Brian is, I'd know that Chris' favorite ice-cream is...
      Brian: Chocolate Chip.
      Peter... and Stewie's favorite bedtime story is...
      Brian: Good Night Moon.
      Peter: And Meg's real father's name is...
      Brian: Stan Thompson.
      (Cuts to Meg and Chris, Meg has headphones on listening to music)

    • Stewie: (to Brian) I am going to kick...your...ass!

    • Peter: (to Brian before he gets neutered) I am not looking forward to what you're going to be like once they do this to you.
      (In Peter's imagination)
      Brian: (overweight and eating a box of chocolates) I LOVE chocolate...but I can't eat it because then I'll get fat. But it's SOOOO good!

    • Mrs. Pewterschmidt: Would you like a piece of candy?
      Stewie: I smell death on you.

    • Peter: Hey, anybody got a quarter?
      Bill Gates: What's a quarter?

    • Hotel Manager: And this is the bathroom, but watch out we got some bad roaches here.
      Red Roach: Hey, you're on our turf man!
      Green Roach: Hey mana, I'll cut you, I'll cut you up so bad you, you gonna wish I no cut you so bad!
      Brian: Those are bad roaches.
      Hotel Manager: I blame the schools.

    • Peter: You know what's funny? I always thought that dogs laid eggs, and I learned something today.

    • Meg: Oh, my God!
      Mr. Pewterschmidt: He's violating Seabreeze!
      Peter: No,no he's just awkwardly positioning himself--oh now he's violating Seabreeze.

    • Ted Turner: Are aces high or low?
      Peter: They go both ways.
      Bill Gates: Hah! He said they go both ways.
      (They all laugh)
      Ted Turner: Like a bisexual.
      Michael Eisner: Thank you Ted, that was the joke.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The FOX version didn't air the part (before the opening credits) where the Griffins were at the zoo. Cartoon Network's version and the DVD version air this in its entirety.

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • Elian Gonzalez:

      When Brian and Seabreeze are captured in the hotel, a photo is taken of a government agent holding a machinegun on them. The pose is identical to the Pulitzer-winning photo of federal agents taking Elian Gonzalez from Donato Dalrymple.

    • Batman

      After hanging out with Carter and Peter, Bill Gates signals a helicopter to pick him up by flashing the Microsoft Windows symbol. This parodies the Bat-Signal used by Commissioner Gordon to summon Batman.

    • Sixteen Candles

      Carter mentions that at the party Peter approached the Premier of China and asked him, "Dong, where is my automobile?". This is a reference to a line said to the foreign exchange student Long Duk Dong in the John Hughes coming-of-age film Sixteen Candles.

    • A Christmas Carol

      Peter: Cratchit, you're working through Christmas!
      Cratchit: But sir, what of Tiny Tim?
      Peter: He and his ukulele shall go wanting.

      Bob Cratchit is the clerk who worked for Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. He had a son named Tiny Tim who was lame and in frail health. His son didn't really play the ukulele though. Peter was referring to a different Tiny Tim, the singer of Tiptoe Through the Tulips.

    • The Exorcist

      After Mr. Pewterschmit nods, and Lois shakes her head, a weird zombie-like girl starts turning her head 360 degrees and spits out green fluid.

      This is a reference to the horror movie The Exorcist, where the girl after being possessed by the devil, could turn her head 360 degrees and puke a lot.

    • Citizen Kane

      Charles Foster Kane: Rosebud...

      This is a reference to the movie Citizen Kane, a classic Orson Wells film made in 1941. It is one of the world's most famous and highly rated films. At the beginning of the film, Kane's dying word is "rosebud." A reporter searches for what the word means for the remainder of the movie.

    • Survivor

      Peter falls through a wall on the "wilderness" set of Survivor. This is an allusion that the show is really filmed on a Los Angeles soundstage, rather than in the wild. It appears to film right next to The Price is Right.

    • Winnie the Pooh Peter: Look at me Lois, I'm Roo! Peter inserts himself into a kangaroo's pouch, and then announces his intention to go "watch Pooh trick bees out of their honey by pretending he's a rain cloud". He is, of course, speaking of the magnificent children's stories of A.A. Milne about Winnie the Pooh, where Roo is a baby kangaroo who hangs out in Kanga's, his mother, pouch.
