* {{Bowdlerization}}: On Channel 4 in the UK, the part where Tom Tucker and Diane say politically incorrect things now that Quahog has no cable (until the cameraman tells them that they're still on the air in Boston) was edited. Tom's line, "I'm The Lord Jesus Christ. Think I'll go get drunk and beat up some midgets" was shortened to "Think I'll go get drunk and beat up some midgets," while Diane's "Well, Tom, I just plain don't like black people" was cut entirely, making it look as if Diane was laughing at what Tom was saying.

Peter teaches Meg how to drive in time for her road test. When Meg fails for racing an Amish buggy, Peter gets distracted by the FOX reality special, ''Fast Animals, Slow Children'', and hits the town's cable satellite, causing all of Quahog to go without TV, which slowly drives Peter crazy...until Lois rescuing him from an angry mob makes him realize that there's more to life than television.

Meg is out to get her driving license. Peter, who would much rather watch "Fast Animals, Slow Children" on TV, reluctantly gives her a lesson in which he teaches her to race red lights. Naturally, Meg completely fails the test, and Peter must drive her home. Unfortunately, he doesn't pay attention to the road, focusing instead on trying to watch TV through the window of a nearby house and crashes into the local satellite receiver dish, knocking out cable TV for the entire Quahog area, prompting news reporters Tom and Diane to blurt out politically incorrect comments (until the cameraman tells them that the cable didn't go out in Boston). He places the blame on Meg, making her even less popular than usual, but he promises her a convertible when she finally gets her license. Peter, who according to Brian is addicted to television, copes with the loss of TV by creating a harness that holds a cardboard television set in front of his face, allowing him to pretend that things around him are on TV.

Meg finally cracks under the pressure of the town's resentment and tells everyone that Peter was the driver who wrecked the receiver. The town is ready to lynch Peter, but Lois convinces the town that now that TV is gone, everybody can focus on more wholesome activities. The townsfolk forgive Peter and move on to enjoy real life.

Peter learns to participate in family activities to fill the void. However, his enthusiasm for life quickly exhausts the rest of the family. When television service is restored (just as Tom goes to give Diane a spanking), the family is unable tempt him back away from real life, as he opts instead to attend a Bavarian folk festival with William Shatner.

Meanwhile, Stewie is revolted by the broccoli he is fed. Rather than eat it, he plans to wipe out the crop worldwide by modifying a See 'n Say into a weather control device. He uses the remains of the satellite dish, which were tangled around the bumper of Peter's car, to amplify the machine's signal and he succeeds in creating a freezing rainstorm, but the process is interrupted by a bolt of lightning, which destroys the machine, though the storm rages on.

Lois takes Meg out on a driving lesson and the two get caught in the storm. Peter and Shatner begin running back to the Griffin's house barefoot in the rain, but are run over by Meg. Shatner dies on the spot while Peter is subsequently hospitalized in a body cast. The nurse leaves the television turned on, and Peter can't resist being drawn in.

* PoliceAreUseless: In the parody of ''Series/CHiPs'', playing off the "ladies' man" persona of Eric Estrada's Frank "Ponch" Poncherello character, Ponch makes a traffic stop on an incredibly sexy blonde in a red convertible to flirt with her! He's [[DistractedByTheSexy soooooooooooooooooo turned on]] that he fails to notice a drive-by shooting or a truck blatantly advertising that it is carrying huge shipments of cocaine!
** HilarityEnsues: In the above gag, Ponch would instantly be removed from the force for neglect of duty (with his desk supervisor shouting at him the whole time during his dismissal hearing) before he finished asking for her name and a date, and likely would be [[MarkOfShame put on a blacklist to never be allowed to be a law enforcement officer again]]. In the ''FamilyGuy'' universe, as viewers quickly came to realize, this was normal.

* EditedForSyndication: In the scene of Tom and Diane reveling in saying politically incorrect things (until the cameraman tells them they're still on the air in Boston), Tom's line, "I'm the Lord Jesus Christ. Think I'll get drunk and beat up some midgets" was cut down to "Think I'll get drunk and beat up some midgets" when the show airs in free TV syndication (not AdultSwim syndication). Diane's confession that she doesn't like black people was also cut in free TV syndication.
