Family Guy

Season 3 Episode 19

Stuck Together, Torn Apart

Aired Sunday 9:00 PM Jan 31, 2002 on FOX



  • Trivia

    • In the scene where Peter visits his third choice of an old girlfriend to "get back" at Lois, on the walls is a lot of photos of Peter. One of the photos is of Peter sitting on a couch, reading the papers. This photo looks like the same shot of Peter from Episode 1 when he "has gas for the first time at 30" during a cutaway.

    • When Joe, Quagmire and Cleveland come by to pick up Peter so they can go out drinking, Peter jokingly says, "I quit drinking. I think I might be an alcoholic." An alcoholic is a person who drinks a lot of alcohol, so someone who quits drinking cannot be an alcoholic. However, you can quit drinking if you are an alcoholic, so maybe this is the case.

    • Muriel says that she met Mort through a dating service, but in "The Kiss Seen Around The World", Mort said they had known each other since they were kids.

    • In one flashback scene, it shows that Stewie's head was not always shaped like a football and it was all an accident. But, in Chitty Chitty Death Bang (see ep.3) it showed Stewie being born with that head. However, though Stewie remembered his birth, he didn't know how he looked, so in the scene(of him being born) he used how he looks right now

      Jennifer Love Hewitt: What's your problem, Grandma?
      Lois: You are! And I only saw Heartbreakers on a plane! (knocks Jennifer down) And the flight was delayed, so the headphones were free!
      Peter: (about Lois knocking Jennifer down) Wow! That was cool, Lois.
      Lois: Gosh! I guess I finally understand... (gets hit with a chair by Jennifer)
      Lois: (pulls Jennifer Love Hewitt's hair, and kicks her) Yeah, you better run, you little bitch! (to Peter) I guess I finally understand how you can get so jealous sometimes. Seeing her kiss you like that just made me crazy. I guess we're just gonna have to learn to control our jealousy together.
