  • BRIAN VS QUAGMIRE

    8.5
    Can people stop moaning about this hate relationship between Brian and Quagmire! I think it's interesting that the writers decided to make a change in the normal "Family Guy" flow of things!



    Also, no one really hated Brian to begin with (in the Family Guy world) and likewise, did Quagmire have his own mortal foe? Something had to eventually happen, and I think it kind of works. I've noticed that when Brian and Quagmire battle it out in an episode we learn so much about them as well.

    Quagmire's especially becoming more interesting as a character. With this episode we learn that he actually loved someone, and we also saw Brian's potential to be quite nasty.



    What I DON'T like now is that Brian literally BECOMING Quagmire's successor. All he does now is mope and sleep with girls. I know Brian slept with girls before, but he was also the intelligent witty voice of reason.



    I enjoyed this episode, particularly Quagmire and Brian's little bitch slap exchange (ooo nasty :P)

    The Mr Washee Washee part was pretty funny. It was not the racism that had me laughing but the bit where Peter tries to fit into the tiny shirt.

    Many people will probably disagree, but I actually found the ending where Brian is hit by a car, pretty funny. Overall I really liked this episode and I really want to know where they're going to take the Brian and Quagmire relationship next :)moreless
  • You get to see the worst of an already low blow character, Brian, and a sex crazed looney, Quagmire.

    Hasn't this episode been done before? In fact it has, but this is the "new" version for "Family Guy." As the show stretches onto it's 9th season, and ratings begin to wane, the writers have fallen into a block.

    They take two characters from their show, and set them up to be even lower on the respect totem pole (granted Brian was never high up to begin with). Brian once again falls in love, fails and Quagmire reluctantly helps out Brian. Brian eventually falters and they begin to be at each others throats. Two grown adults go at it as they try to make the other more jealous of who they date. Brian brings in Quagmire's one true love, and he falls and does the same to Brian. All it turns into is a pity fest at the end as both characters realize what they did was wrong, and make up at the end. It was a real shallow episode that had no real depth to it. It played on the hatred Quagmire has for Brian, but went no deeper then that, as we learn that Brian is more cruel then Quags.

    Animation is the norm to family guy, uninspired but clean, and the episode does a decent job at holding your attention for at least ten minutes watching Peter run about doing his usual mindless antics. Not a real memorable episode for the show, but then again, most are not.moreless

  • Peter's plot was perfect, but Brian and Quagmire's plot...meh...

    8.0
    I thought this episode was great. It would have a superb score, but some scenes lower my score. Peter explaining to the audience about his shirt was a waste of time. Idisparatelywanted to end it. Really? After the previous' episode lazy scene with Carter moving the vehicle (don't know what it called) we just have two uneed long scenes in this episode. The scene where those dudes were lighting up the candles at a mountain...*sulks* was also a waste of time. And then Quagmire. I miss his old self when he didn't hate Brian but doing a plot with him and Brian wasabsolutelya bad idea. Really??! I predicted that he bash Brian in this episode. :/ I wish he's stop being a jerk towards Brian. I just hate Quagmire's new behavior especially the way he treats Brian. The ending wasn't even funny. Quagmire would have stopped hating Brian but eventually he knocks him off. What a big jerk he was in this episode! :/ However, I still think Quagmire funny but not near Brian. Anyway, let's get on the positive stuffs. The Street Fighters scene was hilarious. Meg and Mayor West dating was funny and it was areferenceto Deep Throats. It was kinda random though. Overall, I thought the episode was great, but not the best season 9. It would been beter if Quagmire didn't treat Brian like a d**** but he seriously took it too far.moreless
  • Great Episode !

    9.5
    Personally, I love to see Quagmire and Brian in the same episode. It's always funny in every way, even though there is no obvious conversational jokes. Moreover, this week's episode started with Peter. He only has 1 white shirt left and it's getting smelly, and he just freaks out when he sees that the dry cleaner lost his other white shirt. He even breaks into his house and finds a white shirt, but it's way to small, and that moment comes the guy with shotgun. Next thing we see, Brian coming to the police station to bail out Peter. The show actually starts at this point. I don't want to spoil the rest for the ones who haven't watched this episode yet.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Quagmire claims that Cheryl Tiegs left him because he got jealous too easily. However in the episode, "And Then There Were Fewer," he claimed that she left him because James Woods stole her from him.

    • Brian and Cheryl Tiegs (and later Quagmire and Jillian) are seen dining in a restaurant called "l'Espèce d'Andouille." In French, "espèce de" translates to "stupid," and "andouille" is a slang word for "imbecile" or "idiot," making the name of the restaurant essentially "The Stupid Idiot" or perhaps just "The Idiot."

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Peter: Aha! I knew you had my shirt!
      Mr. Washee Washee: I no have your shirt!
      Peter: (puts on the white shirt he found in the closet and it's much too small) Apparently this isn't mine.
      Mr. Washee Washee: You break entering, I can shoot you legally! (cocks shotgun)

    • Mr. Washee Washee: (watching Star Trek) Ooh, it's the "Mr. Sulu Show". (singing with the Star Trek theme song) Sulu, he's the star of the show. Other guys, just along for the ride.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The scene where Peter is getting out of jail and he tells Brian that that was the only world he knew and he hangs himself, is a clear reference to the movie The Shawshank Redemption, where one of the inmates hangs himself after being freed.

    • Street Fighter

      The fight with Peter and Mr. Washee Washee scene is set in the popular video game "Street Fighter".
