* In Peter's Two Dads, they go out of the way to note that Francis Griffin isn't Peter's biological father, but instead it's Mickey ''Mcfinnegan'' --a man likely with very strong Irish roots and probably rarely left the area. That said, after finding Mickey, Peter still talks about his bloodline of ''Griffin'' relatives. I understand that Peter can still be proud of the...erm, accomplishments of these people, but it seems odd he would continue phrase the stories like he's biologically related to them. Since I'm doubting Thelma's maiden name was also Griffin and FG has a medium awareness of continuity, it seems like a weird detail to overlook...unless they found out Francis was indeed Peter's biological father off screen.

** In all fairness, this is a show that will get things wrong for comedy, thus, it's handwaved for the sake of the plot, after all there is a reason AcceptableBreaksFromReality trope, along with the ArtMajorBiology, ArtisticLicenseBiology and ArtisticLicenseMedicine tropes exist. However, in much the same fairness, not many do know that herpes can't be contracted through blood and some will assume that it can be. However, likewise, dogs can contract herpes (it's called the canine herpes simplex virus) but they can't contract it from nor give it to humans and not too many know that. Either way, if they went with accuracy, it would probably break the plot and the humor of the episode.

** This was actually asked at SDCC 2014... Seth MacFarlane had admitted he didn't give much thought about if they should reveal the sonofabitch's identity but he supposedly jokingly claim that it was a sonofabitch who did it... JUSTIN BIEBER!

* In Herpes the love sore, the majority of the fandom got upset for what Brian did to Stewie and Chris but why does almost no one focus on the fact that herpes can't be contracted through blood?

* In Herpes the love sore, the majority of the fandom really got upset for what Brian did to Stewie and Chris but why does close to no one focus on the fact that herpes can't be contracted through blood?

** Lois clearly has a thing for crazy guys and unpredictable guys. She gets exasperated at times, but she's just as quick to get turned on by his antics too when she is in the mood. Clearly, for her, the exasperation is worth putting up with for the thrill he gives her.

* This is something iv had a problem with in both this and TheSimpsons, I know it's just RuleOfFunny but still, why the hell is Lois with Peter at all? yes occasionally they are as bad as each other, but, seriously, the guy is clearly off his rocker beyond having mental disability.

* What I've never understood is Meg's supposed unattractiveness? She looks similar to her mom Lois and her girth also pales in comparison to her father and brother.
