I have seen that episode of Dallas, and I have to say that they did a great job of recreating that scene.  In fact, I thought that it was the actual scene from Dallas at first, until she started talking about Family Guy.

Episode Name- Da Bomb
Actor Name- Patrick Duffy
Show name where they got that- Dallas

I might be wrong on the episode name.

Wow. That was random.

The AIDS song and the Transformers scene-switch reference were both great.

I think cancer is funnier than AIDS.

Like in Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Meatwad won Superbowl tickets from a bag of chips. Master Shake wanted tickets too, so he ate a lot of bags of chips, and got cancer. That was really funny.

Yes, cancer>AIDS. What I meant to write was second only to cancer, not seconded. Cancer is awesome!

I dunno, I really liked this past week's episode of Family Guy. With this episode and last week's, the show's on a pretty good little run. The Rocky III reference(s) were great, because my friends and I just recently saw that movie again. Cleveland's a completely underrated character. I'm glad we finally got an episode that focused on him. The Peter-copter and the Peter-blimp were nice little repeating sight gags.

OK, I have a question. I was listening to a Family Guy commentary (I think it was the episode when Brian has to take care of some old woman), and there was something that struck me as being strange.
In one scene, Peter sees his childrens faces on the three birds. But on the last bird, instead of having Meg's face, there's Boba Fett's face. Boba Fett looks different. (I think it was all purple and stuff.) Seth said it was a different color because of legal issues.
Here's my question. Doesn't FOX own Star Wars and Family Guy? If so, why was there any legal issue?
[But I have heard that George Lucas (or someone) owns Star Wars, and FOX only distributes it. Is that why there were legal issues with Boba Fett's color?]

Fox paid for Episode IV to be made. All the other movies, however, Lucas paid for directly. I'm pretty sure of this, if my memory from watching the documentary serves me right. I'm also pretty sure that Lucas owns all rights to all things Star Wars. So, if my memory is correct, then Fox does not have rights to Fett.

^That's what I was thinking. Thanks for clearing that up.

And back on topic, this week's episode of Family Guy was OK. What I really didn't get, was how Lois could come back all of a sudden with the kids, and not mention Peter "bathing" her with boiling oil. (And how could she not be scarred, after she was in a body cast?)
I know it's just a cartoon, but it still gets to me. Other than that, a good episode. Peter was basically acting like Chris at the dinner table with his mentor. I was waiting for Chris to say something about Peter yelling and clapping his hands (like Chris often does), but he (Chris) didn't say anything.
And in my opinion, the funniest scene was Quagmire slowly rising from behind the couch when Meg was having her sleepover. And when the girls had a "breast-comparison" (or something like that), I actually felt sorry for Quagmire.

I think its odd that a show like family guy is doing  episodes that are effecting continuity, something sitcoms and especially animated sitcoms dont usually do. Everything should be back to normal by the end of the episode.

First they changed killed off Peter's Boss, then changed Peter's job to being a fisherman (which they've barely used like they used to use his toy factory job), they've split up Loreta and Cleveland, now Peter is permanently Legally Retarded.

The other things I'm not so worried about, but giving a reason for Peter's stupidity sorta makes it less funny. I dunno might just be me.

I thought by the end of the episode they'd reveal they test results got switched with someone else, someone we wouldn't expect like Brian.

That scenario has been played out way too much, I give credit to  Family Guy for not going with the obvious.

I have a question. What's the title of the episode where Brian and Stewie are in some room, and Brian tells Stewie (or Stewie tells Brian) not to say something, and Brian ends up saying that thing, and Stewie slowly (and I mean slowly) turns his head towards Brian?
If anyone can understand my explanation, and knows what the answer is, your help will be greatly appreciated.

Isn't that Road to Rhode Island? I'm not sure.

If it's a scene where they're in a motel room, listening in on the neighbors, then it's probably Road to Rhode Island.

^I'll check it and get back to you. But the episode I'm talking about has Brian and Stewie in a room with some people. Brian and Stewie told each other not to say a word. They go in, and Brian says the word. Stewie slowly turns his head to Brian after this.

I know what you're talking about, but like you, I'm totally lost on both the scenario and the episode. Sounds like a Season 3 episode, though - I remember Stewie's slow head turn being well animated, and the animation in the first 2 seasons was just shocking.

I'm sure the episode is "North By North Quahog", when Brian and Stewie are in Tom Tucker's house. Brian, referring to Chris says, "This whole thing has really turned his whole life upside-down face." and then Stewie slowly turns his head to Brian because Tom Tucker's son, Jake, who has an upside-down face is in the room.

I think you're right HomerJBrannigan. I thought that was in a Season 1-3 episode though.

The recent episode of Family Guy was pretty good, but I thought the parts where
But overall, I'd give it a 8/10.

I was referring to the appearance of He-Man. By far the most hilarious thing in the episode.

Great episode. I liked the sub-plot with Chris more than the main plot. And the He-Man bit was hilarious.

I loved this weeks episode, it's probably my favorite episode of all time (or at least in the top 5).

The Stewie bit was long because that's how it's supposed to be. It's supposed to be long and repetitive.

Also, it was to see how high Stewie's voice could get. If you notice, his voice gets higher and higher with each sentence. It's pretty funny, actually.

Are you talking about the episode where that lttle girl says, "You are the weakest link, goodbye."?

I saw Don't Make Me Over and The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire. Both great episodes, lots of good lines and funny moments. The new season got off to a kinda average start, but it looks like it's getting consistent again laugh-wise.

There aren't as many cutaway gags, but the show's got the insane random-ness that made Season 2 so funny, and still having quite a bit of the character development from Season 3 still apparent. Really looking forward to the upcoming episodes, I'm starting to get back into this show again.  smile
