13 questions in season 3

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. Peter and Brian's plan just worked better than they'd planned.

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?

Casual Person

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

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?

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

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?

Bishop73

Chosen 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."

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?

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

Mr. Griffin Goes to Washington - S3-E3

Question: In the episode there is a scene where Peter is dressed up as a girl wandering around a big city with music that goes "that guy, it's that guy". Is this a spoof of something? If so, what is it a spoof of, and where could I find the original video clip that the episode spoofs.

Emission Impossible - S3-E11

Question: Stewie makes the remark "All this preventing people from having sex. Now I know what the Catholic church is like. BA-ZING." Doesn't the Catholic religion encourage numerous childbirths? I know that Stewie says he's trying to prevent sex, but he claims his primary objective is to prevent Peter & Lois from having another child.

Chosen answer: The catholic church is heavily against sex outside of wedlock, which is increasing dramatically, thus the church tries to stop pre-marital sex.

Gary O'Reilly

And the Wiener is... - S3-E5

Question: When Meg came back home to announce that she's a flag girl Stewie replies by saying "now you can be somewhere else when the boys don't call." I don't get it - can someone please explain it to me?

HEK_98

Answer: It's long been a running joke that Meg is unpopular; Stewie meant that now Meg will be busy with her flag girl duties rather than at home where presumably no boys will be calling for her.

Brian Does Hollywood (2) - S3-E2

Question: I didn't understand why there was a woodpecker on Keanu Reeves' head. What was the joke?

Chosen answer: The joke is that Reeves is a "wooden" actor.

Grumpy Scot

European Road Show - S3-E20

Question: Is Brian's line "Hey, is that a beer hall?" a joke on how tour guides seem to be obsessed with beer halls? I was on a tour in Salzburg, Austria, and the tour guide just wouldn't shut up about the Salzburg beer hall, so I was wondering if this was a common thing amongst tour guides.

Blibbetyblip

Chosen answer: While I am not sure whether it's a common thing, the joke was Brian trying to change the atmosphere of the situation he just created. Brian was trying to get the tour guide to admit to the fact that the history missing in the pamphlet was during the Nazi regime. Due to the Denazification in many European countries, it is generally an area that is still very controversial. The fact that the tour guide made such lame excuses on what had actually happened and then blew up when Brian continued on about it meant it was an issue he should just leave well alone.

Lummie

Mr. Saturday Knight - S3-E9

Question: In the flashback of Peter's old job at the Electric Company, is this part a parody of something?

Chosen answer: There was a kid's tv show called The Electric Company and that is how new words were taught.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Electric_Company

Death Lives - S3-E6

Question: This may sound a bit stupid, but why do a all the animals start making noise when Death walks into the pet store?

Chosen answer: This references the concept that animals are more tuned in to see supernatural things (ghosts, demons, and apparently Death). In many movies, you see animals acting strange when something supernatural is about to occur.

Andreas[DK]

Chosen answer: A movie director. Was married to Sharron Tate, who was murdered by Charles Manson's followers. Won an Oscar for Best Director for the Piano. Any search engine will give you more info on him.
