* EcoTerrorist: One episode had Hayley falling in with an environmentalist group whose leader insists that he's a "[[UsefulNotes/{{Otherkin}} tree born in a man's body]]" and "wears" nothing but a potted plant. He also tries to blow up the new mall, but only succeeds in destroying Francine's muffin kiosk and Klaus' human body from [[TwoLinesNoWaiting the main plot]]. When he does this, Haley rejects him, shoving him over and breaking his pot, causing him to desperately heap dirt around his body while acting like he's suffocating.

** "Hurricane!" (the third part of the SethMacFarlane cartoon-crossover trilogy) has Stan performing one after another of these. The house gets flooded and turned upside down, Hayley's attacked by a shark, Roger's electrocuted, Stan punches Jeff out for no reason, Steve is mauled by a bear that Stan ''let into the house'' to kill the shark, and it ends with Stan harpooning Francine with his college javelin in an effort to kill the bear. The bear even stops and gives Stan a look that says "dude, really?" It isn't until Buckle bursts into the house and shoots the shark, the bear, and Stan, with tranquilizer darts, that things get better. Buckle shot all three because he couldn't tell who was doing the most damage. Just when you think things are finally over, Stan ends up shooting Francine in her other arm with a gun thanks to a MexicanStandoff with [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Peter]] and [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow Cleveland]] at the end of the episode.

** ItRunsInTheFamily. Everyone has found Francine attractive or admitted she being hot. Howewer she is not a natural blond but a brunette, which most likely explains why her son Steve is a light brunette, and daughter Hayley is a darker brunette who seems to have more of Stan's hair color. Before she got a new hairdresser in "Star Trek", her dark roots were visible.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Backstory}}: The episode "Mine Struggle" features flashbacks that serve to explain several character traits, such as why Steve feels such an emotional connection to his backyard (and why he [[spoiler:owns the mineral rights of the yard]]), and also why Hayley wears a headband ([[spoiler:Stan off-handedly claimed that her forehead was "shiny" when she was younger, and she took offense]]).
