  • My third least favorite of the season

    Brian is devastated to learn that his ex-girlfriend Jillian is getting married until he meets The Hills star Lauren Conrad. Though Brian begins to think he and Conrad are the perfect match, he finds his heart may still belong to Jillian. Yep, another love episode...this is actually in the same range as Love Blactually but it is lower. I'm only gonna be generous because the writers did a great job at not using violence at all. This episode however was still boring to watch. Some of the cutaways here were great. A few of parts were great to watch as well. I only laughed like 5 times here. Not worth watching again...only like once a year. 5/10moreless
  • Don't you miss when Brian was just a house dog that drank wine all the time and never cared about girls? Yeah, me too.

    My review: Well, it's the same damn thing we saw the past few episodes.

    -Brian is sad because he doesnt have a girl

    -Brian gets drunk

    -Brian meets a girl

    -Brian bangs her

    the end.



    Boring episode, please do not watch it.

  • Overall okay but the plot could have been so much better

    I thought that this was an okay episode of "Family Guy". It wasn't a bad episode but it was overall okay in my opinion. The plot just seemed to really drag alot and it got boring to watch. There were some parts that made me laugh though. The Bill Cosby cutaway was very funny. The Lindsay Lohan and Mr. Magoo cutaway was hilarious. Stewie saying "Say Whaaaat" was hilarious. Quagmire being sad because he has a glove and then Peter gives Quagmire his baseball glove to Quagmire and then takes it back and says "Na, it's mine" was hilarious. Stewie dressed up as a girl and then guys say "Hey, is that desire?" was funny. Talk show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson, and Jay Leno making a live-action appearance making fun of Brian and The Hills star Lauren Conrad going out was hilarious. Even though some of the parts were funny, this episode was just okay. I just didn't like it how everyone was laughing at Brian because they say that Lauren Conrad is just a stupid blonde woman. Brian realizes that he still had feelings for Jillian so he confesses his love to her before she marries Derek but it was too late. The ending was also just lousy and could have improved much more. Overall, an okay episode of "Family Guy" but it needed more improvement. 6/10moreless
  • Bravo! Great Episode!

    This has become one of my favorite episodes! I really loved the friendship between the girl, Brian, and Stewie. I felt bad. There's a reason I felt bad. That reason, for which I will now state, is that Brian didn't get Jillian back. I loved Brillian! They were something special. She was Brian first long lasting relationship.



    I really like the "father-daughter" type relationship Peter has with Jillian. They really like each other, which is probably because they are both sort of numb. I love when Brian was like "Your making me feel like....Jillian". Overall, one of the best episodes of Family Guy.moreless

    Brian gets drunk one night, and meets Lauren Conard, star of The Hills. They soon start dating, but Brian realizes that she is really smart, and he cant date somebody who is smarter than him. He realizes, well Lauren realizes for him, that he really loves Jillian, but she is getting married to a guy named Derek. Right in the middle of the wedding, Brian asks Jillian if she will give him another chance, but the answer is no. Stewie asks him if he can go back to lauren, but brian gave her worms.



    This was a decent episode. I liked Stewie "say whaaaaat" wearing the hat, and The Sting parodies.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Bill Cosby: Now you will get ready for the zim-zam and the babbidy-bibbidy. And you will take off your clothes like voo and voom. And get ready for the most splendifrous pudding pop you have ever seen.

    • Brian: If you're so smart, how come you don't tell anyone?
      Lauren: Because Americans hate smart people. That's why they elected President Bush... twice!

    • Lois: Hey, Jillian. Congratulations on your nuptials.
      Jillian: Oh, are they showing? Sorry, it's a really thin bra.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Previously known as An American Dog in Paris. The episode was originally written for Paris Hilton to guest star. But according to one Family Guy director, "She doesn't have a sense of humor about herself and refused to do it."

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Walk Right In
      Stewie's little song to Brian about "walking right in" to his punch line is based on the 1960's hit, Walk Right In by The Rooftop Singers.

    • The Karate Kid

      The Way Derek heals the waiter's elbow, is similar to the way Mr. Miyagi heals injuries in film the Karate Kid.

    • My Fair Lady

      The hat Stewie is wearing when they visit the set is the the same hat Audrey Hepburn wears in her role as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.

    • Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

      As Brian and Lauren are discussing music and books, she mentions that she doesn't let those things interfere with her bio-molecular research. When asked for an explanation, Lauren takes Brian down a hallway and into the Genesis Cave.

      This scene, along with the dialogue, is a direct allusion to the second Star Trek movie. The Genesis Device (and the Genesis Effect) are central points to that movie's plot.

    • Bye Bye Birdie

      This episode shares its name with a song from the musical Bye Bye Birdie.
