Family Guy

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Question: After Lois says she doesn't want to hear another word of this and leaves, Peter does what looks like sign language to Chris, who does a sign back. Did they actually say anything in sign language, or was it just another goofy bit? If it was real, what was said?

New this week Answer: Peter signs to Chris "She won't have to hear another word because luckily we've mastered American Sign Language" and Chris replies in sign language with "Ha-ha-ha-ha."

The Boys in the Band - S15-E1

Question: When Stewie is talking to Brian about songs not addressing baby issues, Brian says to Stewie "Well how could they address baby issues? Children's songs are written by adults. And dollars to donuts, white adults." Stewie then replies saying "Who are you mad at, Brian?" and Brian then says "How much time you got?" Did I miss a joke or something? What exactly was "And dollars to donuts, white adults" supposed to mean?

New this week Answer: "Dollars to donuts" is just a colorful expression meaning you're pretty sure about something (similar to saying "100 to 1" which in betting terms mean I'll put up $100 I'm right and you put up $1 that I'm wrong). Brian is just suggesting baby songs are written by white adults because he's saying white people don't have real problems.

The Boys in the Band - S15-E1

Question: When Stewie says he is going to write a song and that Brian can help, Brian replies saying "Well, I did write a musical about Alexander Hamilton." Stewie then looks puzzled by what Brian said and Brian says to Stewie "Not that one." First, who exactly is the Alexander Hamilton that Brian was talking about? And second, what exactly was Stewie supposed have been thinking of after Brian said Alexander Hamilton, but before Brian pointed out it "wasn't that one"?

New this week Answer: There's a Broadway musical called "Hamilton", which is about Alexander Hamilton. It's been very successful and won countless awards. Stewie gives Brian a look of disbelief that he wrote the popular "Hamilton" musical, so Brian is saying the musical he wrote is not the famous musical, but a different one.

Hot Pocket-Dial - S14-E7

New this week Question: Why is Brian trying to convince Peter to move on from Quagmire's pocket-dialed conversation when Brian and Quagmire hate other?

Road to the Multiverse - S8-E1

Question: When Stewie and Brian are in the Disney universe, why did everyone attack Mort?

Answer: Mort is Jewish, and Walt Disney was said to be antisemitic. So it would make sense in a Disney universe all the inhabitants would share his supposed beliefs.

Brian Sings & Swings - S4-E19

Question: In this episode Meg pretends to be a lesbian, when she calls herself a 'mega lesbian' it shows four other 'mega lesbians' singing something on deep voices. What song are they singing? Is it a real song?

Answer: It's a real song called "Elvira". Originally by Dallas Fraizer in '66, however, this version seems to be the Oak Ridge Boys cover version. However, the mega lesbians skip the verse and just sing the chorus after the opening line.

The Hand That Rocks the Wheelchair - S9-E12

Question: In the beginning of the episode Lois says Meg looks like Rachel something in a condescending way. Was there another joke there?

Answer: The "Rachel something" Lois was referring to was Rachel Maddow. Also, Lois never said Meg looked like Rachel Maddow, she said Bonnie said she was pretty and Meg asked how it came up and Lois replied "Oh! You know, we were talking about pretty people, and I said Rachel Maddow and she kind of took the baton from there and said Meg Griffin". The joke here is that later in this scene, Meg asked who Rachel Maddow was and Lois replied "A model", however, Rachel Maddow isn't actually a model, she's a presenter, political commentator and author. Lois was just trying to get Meg to take care of Joe and Susie for the week.

The Thin White Line (1) - S3-E1

Question: In this episode, Peter and Brian escape the rehab centre to visit the teenage pregnancy clinic, where they prank the girls who are asleep by dipping their hand in a dish of water, which causes them to give birth prematurely. How does that prank make that happen?

Answer: It's a common slumber party trick to put someone's hand in warm water, which is supposed to relax the person and make them wet the bed. Peter and Brian's plan just worked better than they'd planned.

No Country Club for Old Men - S11-E22

Question: Stewie says "Megs Benedict" after Carter pukes all over her. Why is it funny?

Answer: It's a play on words. Instead of eggs Benedict, he says Megs Benedict.

A Demon

Jungle Love - S4-E13

Question: What song is playing when Chris is being paddled by the students?

Answer: "No More Mr. Nice Guy" by Alice Cooper; this scene directly mirrors a scene from "Dazed and Confused", music and all.

Screwed The Pooch - S3-E13

Question: At the trial, Carter's lawyer asks Brian the star of two films he rented - Brian replies "Pauly Shore" and everyone seems shocked. Is there supposed to be a joke behind this? If so, what does this joke mean?

Answer: They were shocked that anyone would rent movies starring him - he is a bad actor.

Peter's Daughter - S6-E8

Question: Peter initiates a cutaway when he says: "he's a bad man, like Jodie Foster." In the cutaway, Jodie Foster is making out with a woman, who then exclaims that her husband has come home early, to which Jodie replies, "don't worry baby he had to find out sometime" in a deep, mannish voice. She then farts. I don't get the joke. Why is she a man?

Answer: Jodie Foster had long been rumored to be a lesbian who refused to come out of the closet; the cutaway joke was a poke at this notion.

The Heartbreak Dog - S14-E16

Question: In one of the cut-away scenes, Peter is riding a bike. He tells Brian that he is "one of those people now." What does he mean by "those people"?

Answer: This occurs in a flashback where Peter is recalling a time Brian discovered his "hidden shame." In the memory, Brian is driving a car. Peter pulls up next to him on a bicycle. He is decked out in a full, multi-neon-colored lycra spandex pro bicycling get-up, with matching reflecting helmet and some kind of rear view mirror attached. The ensemble is complete with riding gloves and the latest athletic shoes. When Brian notices it's him, he exclaims, "PETER?!" To which Peter responds, "Brian, I'm sorry. I'm one of these guys now...I'm SORRY, Brian. I'M SORRY! (as Brian drives off, aghast) " By "these guys," Peter means the kind of guy who, though a casual cyclist and nowhere near professional level, still buys all of the latest riding clothes and gear, making him look silly and pretentious (in "Family Guy" terms, he looks like a "douchebag").

Show generally

Question: Does any character in the show beside Brian and other kids his age understand what Stewie is saying? Or is it that Stewie doesn't realize it?

Answer: Stewie himself has explained to Brian that of the immediate family, only Brian can always understand him. The others, especially Lois, seem to get a vague impression of how he is feeling but do not hear the words. Most other characters can understand him, whenever it's convenient or needed for the story. A few times his parents can understand him, for comedic purposes.

Call Girl - S11-E14

Question: Last line of the show, Stewie says "can I interest you guys in two and a quarter way". What does that mean?

Answer: He's insisting that he joins in on Peter and Lois having sex. Usually sex between three people would be called a "three way", but since Stewie is only a baby and hasn't fully grown up yet, he would only be a quarter of a person, which would equal up to two and a quarter people.

Brothers & Sisters - S9-E15

Question: When Mayor West says his aides have AIDS, who is the guy who then shouts "Not OK"? Also, is there a joke behind this man?

Answer: It is Robert Loggia, and no secret joke. Just a random moment with a guest.

The Tan Aquatic with Steve Zissou - S5-E11

Question: When Brian tells Stewie, "It might be the "C" word." and Stewie asks "What the hell does that have to do with anything?" What is Stewie referring to?

Answer: Stewie thinks Brian is referring to the word "c**t", which is a vulgar slang term for a woman's vagina.

Brian Does Hollywood (2) - S3-E2

Question: I saw this episode on one of the channels where it is syndicated. The part at the beginning (during the action films parody), where Meg tells Lois that Peter isn't going to come out of the coma, was taken out. Does anyone know why?

Answer: Usually syndicated shows run a few seconds shorter than the originals, so they cut out things to make them fit.

Question: In the episode where Lorreta cheats on Cleveland, who was that Guy in the Orange Afro Wig(?) who kicks Peter in the "nuts"? Is he from a show and, if so, which one?

Answer: Family Guy writer and voice of Cleveland, Mike Henry, has an online show called "Kicked in the nuts" where he dresses up exactly as the character in the episode. Check out http://www.kickedinthenuts.com/

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know if the new episodes of Family Guy will be on Cartoon Network or Fox?

Answer: FOX will air them first, but not until next year at the earliest. After that, I am sure Cartoon Network will reshow them in syndication shortly thereafter.

Mistakes

Just before Peter enters the tunnel in his new car, the white line in the middle of the road is blotchy and not continuous. When the shot changes to Peter's POV, the line has completely disappeared. The next shot which shows the car side on, there is now a straight white line on the road.
