Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Many members of the main cast tend to hold some combination of racist, sexist, misogynistic, chauvinistic, and/or homophobic viewpoints (Peter in particular often talks down to women, and Brian's racism against blacks is a consistent, although rare, trait). It's usually played for laughs in the name of BlackComedy, but it gets especially JustForFun/{{egregious}} in the Season-8 episode "Quagmire's Dad".\\\
When Quagmire's father visits Quahog, Glenn goes through extreme amounts of stress because his father has stereotypically gay mannerisms, while Peter and Joe are also slightly weirded out. This is despite the fact that, theoretically, even if he is gay, it wouldn't change anything about the relationship between Quagmire and his dad. He learns to accept his dad for who he is by the end of the episode, but the idea that sexual orientation doesn't affect one's personality is never explored.

Added DiffLines:

* NonSequitur: A few characters, most often Stewie or Peter, have a tendency to comment on something completely unrelated to the scene at hand. It's usually done to lighten the mood in an otherwise serious exchange. For example, when Joe and Bonnie argue in the episode "Internal Affairs":
-->'''Joe:''' You know what, it doesn't matter. Bonnie's been driving me away for some time now.\\
'''Bonnie:''' What?! Driving ''you'' away? Do you have any idea how hard it is living with you?!\\
'''Stewie:''' ... they still have one of those [=TVs=] with the big, fat back.

* PunctuatedForEmphasis: In the episode "No Meals on Wheels", Peter attempts to use a photo of Creator/MarkHarmon to [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext explain to Lois why "cripples are not cool"]]:
-->'''Peter:''' What do you see here, Lois?\\
'''Lois:''' ''[sighs]'' A picture of Mark Harmon.\\
'''Peter:''' A picture of Mark Harmon, the greatest actor who ever lived! Do you see a wheelchair under Mark Harmon?\\
'''Lois:''' Peter...\\
'''Peter:''' Lois, do you... see a wheelchair... under Mark Harmon?\\
'''Lois:''' No.\\
'''Peter:''' No, you do not, because Mark Harmon is cool!

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: "The D in Apartment 23" focues on all of Quahog hating on Brian because he tweeted a racist joke. Everyone turns into the very definition of a Social Justice Warrior by taking offense to Brian assuming their genders and being labeled as sexist and ableist when he tries to apologize. This results in Brian giving TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to all of them for being so outrageously sensitive to ever minor thing.
