Business Guy - S8-E9

Question: In the episode, Peter threatens to fire Lois, and she responds with "you wouldn't" and Peter then replies with "Oh really, does the name Lacey Chabert mean anything to you?" which in turn makes Lois go wide eyed and reply with "OK, I'll behave" and Peter then goes on to add "Yes you will" Can anyone explain this joke if it is a joke to comprehend?

5

Answer: Lacey Chabert was the actress who originally voiced Meg in early episodes. She left of her own accord due to being in school and other acting work; Seth MacFarlane has stated there was no tension with her leaving, but it makes for a handy joke for the show.

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?

5

Chosen 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.

Road to the Multiverse - S8-E1

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

6

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.

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?

NiNi
3

Answer: I thought it meant cum... Lol idk why.

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

Answer: Since Stewie is known for being gay or bi, I always thought Stewie thought he meant c*ck.

Show generally

Question: Is it just me, or does the way Stewie says "Laugh and cry" in the opening titles change in different episodes? In some episodes it sounds like he's saying something like "Leff en cry" but in other episodes it sounds like "Laugh and cry".

Blibbetyblip
3

Chosen answer: In the first two seasons, the words "... Laugh and cry" sound to many like "effing cry" (or, "f-ing cry"). Aware of this confusion, Seth McFarlane re-recorded the line for the third season, enunciating more and emphasising the hard "L" sound in the word. From the fourth season, when the show was revived, it reverted to the original way.

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?

3

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

No Country Club for Old Men - S11-E22

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

Leon Moorman

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

A Shot in the Dark - S14-E9

Question: At one point when Brian says something, Stewie tells him to look into his pocket where he finds a paper reading what Brian just said. Then Brian says something about it and Stewie tells him to look into his other pocket, where he finds another paper reading what he just said. Then Stewie tells Brian to look into Chris' pocket, which has bottom cut off. Later in the episode Chris tells Brian to look into Meg's pocket, but Brian refuses. What was all this about?

3

Answer: So it started out with the fact that Stewie knew what Brian was going to say in this situation because Stewie sees Brian as predictable and pretentious while Brian thinks he's being deep and poignant. The Chris part was since the bottom of his pocket was cut out, Brian touched Chris' genitals. Later when they tell Brian to reach into Meg's pocket, he's didn't want to fall for the same gag and end up touching Meg's genitals.

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?

4

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

And what's the connection of that making him a bad dad?

It's just a joke that someone who would make such a bad decision in renting movies couldn't be responsible for making good decisions in raising a kid.

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?

OliviaD3601

Chosen 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 (this is in fact a myth). Peter and Brian's plan just worked better than they'd planned.

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?

3

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.

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein - S3-E22

Question: Cartoon network said in a commercial that they had to change one word in Peter's song in this episode ("I need a Jew tonight") so they could air it. They also say that the DVD really says the word they couldn't air. My question is, what did Peter really say in the song and what else was changed to make this episode airworthy?

2

Answer: The original line was "Even though they killed our Lord". This was changed to "I don't think they killed our Lord".

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?

*BleuFever
2

Chosen 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.

2

Answer: Yes, everyone can understand and hear him, no one other than other babies and Brian takes him seriously because of the fact that he's a baby. This was stated by Seth MacFarlane.

1

Answer: Chris understands Stewie as well.

Jungle Love - S4-E13

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

2

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

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

2

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.

Brian's Play - S11-E10

Question: Stewie tells Brian it took Peter a year to figure out Stuart Little - is there a joke I'm missing in there?

2

Answer: The idea being Peter is so dumb as to not understand Stuart Little was the name of the mouse, but Peter was still able to follow the plot of Brian's Play.

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?

2

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.
