** You're missing the point completely. Lying about a future war was a pretense to get Stan out of the way, a pretense he EAGERLY accepted, leaving Francine alone with a veritable stranger. Cyborg Stan time traveling in itself is the "proof" that he's better. He had lived without her long enough to truly understand on her value to him.

**That's...the whole point? Stan and Francine never examined what Haley's problem was, which is why we get the reveal that Stan never tells her he loves her even when she clearly indicates that's what she wants to hear, so she unhealthily takes her hurt and anger out on those who reject her.

* In The Kidney Stays In The Picture, Stan and Francine have to go back in time to identify a man who may be Hayley's father, since Hayley drank so much she needs a kidney transplant while Francine only has one and the rest of the family may not be compatible. The question is, instead of going back to see if the man is Hayley's father, why not go back in time and just stop her from drinking to the point where she has kidney failure?

** Throughout the entire scene, he's complaining loudly about the crappy hands he's being dealt. So when he's suddenly eager to play, he gives away the fact that he has a great hand, which causes everyone else to fold, meaning he only wins a little bit of money.

* In "Pulling Double Booty", where we learn that Hayley enters an Unstoppable Rage if her boyfriend dumps her... despite having no hesitations doing the dumping herself. now why did the episode proceed to treat any man interested in her as preemptively at fault for having the potential to dump her but NOT ONCE did Stan nor Francine ever attempt to address Hayley's temper let alone call her out on being a disgusting Hypocrite?

* In "I can't Stan you" Deputy Director Bullock is handing out various illegal items for his agents to take home and hide before a congressional inspection, one of which is God's signature. All of the agent's eagerly put up their hands to volunteer but when Bullock says "Protestants only." all the agents except Duper put their hands down, including Stan! But the Smiths are protestant - they're episcopalian. So, was that just an oversight by the writing staff or what?

** The Episcopalian Church self-describes as "Protestant, yet still Catholic", with a pretty wide range within it. Maybe the Smiths (or at least, Stan) are from one of the more Catholic denominations with the Episcopalian community and thinks it is strictly Lutheran or Presbyterian?
