    Stewie finds out that his life in the future is miserable. So he decides to go back in time and change events for the better. Uh, this last part of Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story wasn't as perfect as the last two parts but it was still great to watch. I kinda thought the storyline was boring and I didn't laughed as much as the previous episode. Some of the characters' appearance in the future were funny. I thought it was funny that Meg had a sex change and she was a guy named Ron. Some of the lines were LOL moments and they kinda saved the score here. Overall a great episode but the only Untold Story part without a perfect score. 8.5/10moreless

    what i liked- Stewie complaining that Lois was still alive in the future, Joe walking in Bonnie's legs, the ending with Meg meeting the guy Ron, The President Douchebag cutaway, the Jesus cutaway, the 24 parody at the start, "Can I still read Parade?" "No you cannot read Parade!", etc.

    pretty good. it gets kind of boring on repeat, but it is an overall funny and good conclusion to the "Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story" trilogy of episodes. A+ as my final grade.moreless
  • Part three of a very good three part episode. This was also a movie.

    When Peter and Lois enroll Stevie in a swimming class Stewie is out swam by another kid. After trying to kill the kid he winds up in Hell for a short time. When he comes back he desides to change his life and be nice. Meanwhile Peter gets a segment on tv called "Grind My Gears", but he is fired when Brian and Stweie get drunk and crash Brians car into a bar. Stewie sees someone on tv that looks just like him and he thinks its his real father. Brian and Stewie (and Quagmire for a while) set on a road trip to find Stewies father. When Stweie finally finds the man it turns out to be him from the future. Stewie and his future self "Stu" go to the future where Stewie finds out that he is a virgin, Chris is married and a cop, and Meg went to college and had a sex change. Meanwhile Peter and Lois try to find dates for Chris and Meg so they can have some alone time. Stewie trys to change Stu and stop himself from being a virgin. Stu tells Stewie he turned out the way he is because of a life changing moment. Stewie goes back to the past when Stewie trys to kill another swim mate. Stewie stops his other self and his other self destroys him. Overall it is a good movie with more language than the show.

  • Stewie doesn't like how his life is, so he is goona change it, somehow.

    Stewie sees the future, and he is surprise on how much did and didn't change. Like Meg getting a sex change, Brian dead, Joe having Bonnie's legs, and Chris being married to a jerk. He didn't like how his job turned out, and that Louis was still alive. He really didn't like that he reads a cretin magizine, and his appartment. But what really got him agery was that he was still a virgin! So he tries to change everything, but when he messes up his chances with the girl, burns down his appartment, and gets him fired, he tells him that ever since he started being good it changed everything! So when they tried to borrow money from Louis, she knew that it was Stewie all along, and gives them the money that they needed. Stewie goes back before the Life Gaurge post falls on him, and tells him that he was from the future. But when he couldn't answer a cretin question, he was gone!moreless

    Amazing...Family Guy would not exist without Stewie. He is easily the funniest character in animated television. He completes me as a person. The first time i watched a family guy episode... i heard one of many of Stewie's classic quotes, "What the Deuce!?" i rolled in laughter for hours and rewound it several times to watch it again. The Character of Stewie is absolutely genious and my hat is off to the creator. If you have never treated yourself to an episode of family guy, i strongly encourage you to do so in the very near future. You will not be sorry.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Stewie: (to Stu) I could handle the crappy apartment and the pedestrian job, but now you're telling me I'm a 35-year old ''Parade'' magazine reading virgin?!

    • Old Lois: Hi, Glen. How's the arthritis?
      Old Quagmire: Fine. 'Course, I've gotten a little stiff since you walked in, Giggety gigg... oop, I just pooped a little.
      Old Cleveland: Oh... that's... nasty...

    • Brian: (in heaven) Look at me, hanging out with Ernest Hemmingway, Vincent Van Gogh and Kurt Cobain. But it does seem like we all ended up here earlier then we should have.
      Hemmingway: Well, I finally collapsed under the weight of my own genius, and shot myself.
      Van Gogh: I couldn't reconcile my passion with the way people around me were living, so I shot myself.
      Cobain: I couldn't stand the idea of my music becoming some bland corporate tool, so I shot myself.
      Brian: Yeah, I... got into the garbage and ate some chocolate.

    • Stu: (after sex) So...do I...do I give you money or something?
      Fran: Yeah, I'm gonna go.

    • (Stu and Fran are in bed, looking really nervous)
      Stu: I'm sorry. That's never happened before.
      Fran: What? The eight seconds of sex, or the forty minutes of crying afterwards?

    • (as Stewie writes "douchebag" on Brian's grave)
      Stu: That's not really appropriate, Stewie.
      Stewie: Of course it is, I loathe that know-it-all flea-bitten mutt!
      Stu: No, it's just that the meaning of that word has changed ever since President Douchebag.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode, along with the others that make up the movie, is not recognized as an official episode by FOX, or by the Family Guy staff.

    • A scene in the original movie, where Stewie goes back in time to Chris and Vanessa's wedding and destroys Vanessa with a bazooka is cut from the TV version.

    • This is part 3 of the movie Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story, released on DVD September 27, 2005, and then later broadcast on Fox on May 21, 2006.

  • ALLUSIONS (7)

    • Stewie: Did they unfreeze Walt Disney?

      This line is referencing an urban legend that when Walt Disney died, they had him cryogenically frozen until he could be brought back.

    • Joe: Who wears short shorts? I wear short shorts!

      Joe sings the commercial jingle from the 70's commercial for Nair, a hair removal cream. In 2007 the commercial was updated with new music and dancing, but the same lyrics.

    • Stewie: Smells like Head and Shoulders, but you don't have dandruff.
      Stu: Exactly!
      Stewie: Aah!

      This is the same dialogue from an old Head and Shoulders shampoo commercial.

    • As future Stewie returns himself to his own time, present Stewie jumps on at the last second, yelling "surprise!" This plays off a similar scene in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, when Dr. Gillian Taylor (Catherine Hicks) grabs onto Captain Kirk, and says the same thing, as he's getting beamed back aboard the cloaked Klingon vessel. Both scenes were set in San Francisco.

    • In the scene were Stewie is racing to the pool to prevent his near-death experience, this is a reference to the movie 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' when Ferris is racing to get back home before his family does and finds out that he was faking a sick day.

    • Before this episode of Family Guy begins, the last episode is re-capped exactly like "24", another FOX series. The intro is voiced by Kiefer Sutherland star of the hit crime drama who plays Jack Bauer.

    • Stu and Stewie's Excellent Adventure

      The title of the third episode is an allusion to the 1989 movie Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure with Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves, and George Carlin.
