Added DiffLines:

Lois announces to the family that they should start sticking with a budget just as Peter comes in with a buttload of lottery tickets, one of which turns the lower-middle-class Griffins into multi-millionaires.

!! Tropes:

* CrossingTheBurntBridge: Subverted when Peter tells Lois about how he quit his job after becoming a millionaire. The way he talks about it, especially the part where he told his boss what she could do with his job, suggests he did or said something nasty but the flashback shows he was polite and eloquent. Played straight later with how he treats his friends. They forgive him in the end.
* AFoolAndHisNewMoneyAreSoonParted: Peter eventually squanders his lottery prize and decides the only way out of their new predicament is to win the lottery again. The next scene reveals that they ''did'' win again but squandered the new winnings.
* GenreSavvy: Even before the Griffins start spending their winnings, Carter Pewterschmidt phones Lois to ask if Peter already blew the dough. She says he didn't and Carter tells her to call after he does. He turns out to be right about Peter squandering the lottery money.
* RealityEnsues: Peter tries to swim in a pile of coins like ''[[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]]'' and ends up bruised and bleeding.
* ShoutOut: The inside of the money bin where Peter tries to swim looks like the one from ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''.
