Added DiffLines:

*** Joe is actually rather civil to Meg. Also, most of what the endures is verbal abuse and not physical so the family wouldn't be arrested. If this wasn't an ongoing gag I would imagine that, best case scenario, Meg could emancipate.

** I always thought of this scene as a parody of the Plymouth Rock story. Which is a story that some 121 years after the first arrival of the Pilgrims a man named Thomas recounted, saying he had once heard from his father who, in turn, had learned it from another person. Yet this story has become the absolute truth if the Mayflower's arrival, even though there's no reliable evidence of it.

** Francis was most likely Peter's ''legal'' father. Especially if he and Thelma were married before Peter was born. That would make the Griffins his family regardless of blood. He had also lived forty years knowing his Griffin family and barely knows Mickey. Even if, say, Francis never took Peter as his legal son the Griffins would still be his family through his mother's marriage to him.

The ''real'' question would likely be why his ancestors looked and talked like him but when you remember that Nate Griffin married Lois Laura Bush Lynne Cheney Pewterschmidt and had kids with her...
