** Tropers/{{Philipnova798}}: This was the episode that made me lose all hope in the series. Up to this point, I was able to tolerate the BlackComedy and the DudeNotFunny nature of the post-cancellation seasons. Hell even this episode I liked... up until Stewie vomits the communion wine. And that's when when it all came crumbling down as religious propaganda and racism that makes even ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' seem tame. Texans are not all stupid, self-minded people. And really? Why the fuck did they have to include two ChuckNorris jokes that weren't even remotely entertaining ([[WouldHurtAChild punching another child? Really?]]) Having Dubya in the episode was promising as they did make him into a nice guy, but severely wasted largely in part of the AuthorTract going on. This episode is the reason why I only watch the first three seasons on an occasional basis (If I bother watching the series).

%% ** Tropers/YoungPrincessZelda: Giving up my "Fresh Heir" complaint because I had a lot of issues with this episode, such as Stewie saying "That's a cool whip" which brings back the painfully unfunny cool whip joke, the main plot, and ending. But to narrow it down, I had to pick the moment where Peter, Joe, and Quagmire fight the 3 barguys. I could rant forever on that part, but the part where Peter tries to open a can of spinach was just fucking lazy. Andrew Goldberg (Writer of this episode and the notorious "The Juice is Loose"), if you're reading this, learn to fucking write, you dipshit! I'm sick of your lazy fatass writing! Can't wait for the Parents Television Council to get medieval on this one.

Added DiffLines:

**SofiaBlythe2012: Oh how I wish I could put the entirety of season 12. However, according to the rules, I should only pick 1, and that would be Herpe The Love Sore. So, this episode's main plot involves Brian knowingly giving Stewie, an infant, a ruthless disease like herpes. Brian is a jerk, but he would never do anything this malicious, especially towards his best friend. He literally has no motivation for his behavior, and just comes across as a heartless sociopath, making it even harder to sympathize with him. This plot barely has a story beyond "Brian gives Stewie herpes.". The episode tries to give a moral on honesty, but because it involves someone getting a life threatening disease he can never be cured of, it falls completely flat on its face. Let's talk about the subplot. It involves Peter and his friends getting bullied by three guys later revealed to be soldiers, and yet they're supposed to be seen as in the wrong. Maybe if the plot ended with the soldiers being punished with Peter and the guys winning, it could've been tolerable. But, because the soldiers win, it pretty much says soldiers can act like jerks and get away with it. Both plots are really terrible.

* tropers/{{scottvanslyke}}: Brian the Closer - This is the episode that destroyed any empathy I had left for Brian. After he gets new teeth paid for by Quagmire (Who is the person who hates him the most) he then decides to screw him out of his hard earned money by tricking him into buying a crappy run-down condo. That and the fact that it's the teeth that got him the job as a real estate agent in the first place makes Brian look like an ungrateful jerk.

* Tropers/{{Mineburst}}: Turkey Guys. It had a lot of unclever jokes, but otherwise a decent story that almost ended on a heartwarming note. Peter decides not to kill a turkey he brought home and realizes the true meaning of Thanksgiving is being with family and friends... then a drunken Chris blows the turkey to bits, followed by Peter saying he and Lois divorced a four years later and Stewie died. WTF, writers, you had the perfect way to end the episode, and out of the blue you just raped it.

** Tropers/{{Ninetails2000}}: I've been able to tolerate a lot from this show, but this right here was the final straw for me. The forklift jokes were pretty... okay... I guess. They once again made fun of Joe's disability but I didn't think that much of it seeing that they've done worse. Then I saw the whale [[OhCrap and it immediately made me shudder just knowing that Peter's intervention was going to leave that poor creature injured or dead.]] My God, was I right. I knew exactly what was going to happen before it happened, but when [[NauseaFuel the whale cracked open like an egg and it's guts spilled out with Peter still fidgeting around with it and making the thing fall apart on the forklift]] I said "[[NoJustNoReaction Nope. No more. That's it.]]" Fuck you writers.

** Tropers/{{Tatsui Chiyo}} For me, the entire set-up of Brian's death was just one major fuck you to the entire fanbase. I had been waning off of ''Family Guy'', no longer finding it has funny or thought provoking, more "what hypocritical, rage inducing message can we force down our viewers throats". But when I heard Brian was dead, I actually watched the episode and found it had been very well done. A somewhat emotional send off (Like those two up there said, the fuck was with the squirrel and chicken?) to the guy. Then, Vinny, this interesting and funny new character arrives, completely different from Brian in almost every way. I actually felt hope that maybe this was the writers getting back on board to the old humor, and that while Brian would be missed, they would probably still refer to him now and again. What happens only two episodes later? 'Did you really think we'd kill Brian?" Yes. Yes I did. Bringing him back not only ousted this entire beautifully done transition with a new character and possible new direction, it turned it into a cheap, promotional middle finger. The rage I felt at that entire thing was just sickening. They toss Vinny aside like he was an old shirt, they yank the chains of people excited for a new character, and perhaps the worst part? Instead of showing a lesson about accepting loss and learning to move on from it, instead it becomes "Sad your pet died? Wish you could have them back? Well too bad you don't have a f***ing time machine!" I lost the chance to say goodbye to a cat I'd known for 12 years simply because I decided to stay an extra hour at the mall, no idea that we were pretty much being forced to give her up to please our asshole neighbors (Long story short, we got 5 animals wandering this neighborhood without their owners giving a shit, they hated our cat because God knows why, they find poop in yard, threaten to call animal control on our cat unless we keep her in house). And I would give anything to be able to say goodbye. So turning what I saw as a touching moment and turning it into... that, only served to make me swear off of ''Family Guy''. Sorry for the long rant, but I've said my piece.

** Warner14: The death of Brian itself felt more like a scene made for drama just to get ratings [[DudeNotFunny and that alone is a repulsive and disgusting act of greediness]]. Still, there's more to it that makes it such. Brian was one the few characters I liked on the show when he wasn't forcing his views down people's throats. He had a likable design, great voice and when he managed to be entertaining, he got that down. So when I see my favorite character get killed in a violent, senseless and brutal way, it hurts in the most gut-wrenching and insulting ways imaginable.

** Tropers/{{Wildstar93}}: I've been watching recent episodes of Family Guy and tolerating (but not liking or agreeing with) all of its content...but ''Stewie Is Enciente'' is what made me give up the series. What made it stand out is the birth scene. I don't have anything against birthing scenes (except in ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''), but how they did it and Stewie's [[{{Squick}} pregnancy]]...no more Family Guy for me for a while.

For god's sake, does Donna expect him to be HAPPY that someone ''died''?!
