* LongList: The ColdOpen shows Peter sadly telling the rest of the family that their show has been canceled to make room for more important shows, proceeding to list several short-lived Fox shows which had come and went since ''Family Guy'' had gone out of production, including
''Series/That80sShow''[[note]]though that show would more or less live on as ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'', as Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, and the actress who plays Corey's bisexual ex-girlfriend would be on that show[[/note]], ''Series/ThePitts'', ''Cedric the Entertainer Presents'', ''Series/{{Titus}}'', ''Series/{{Undeclared}}'', ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', ''Series/DarkAngel'', ''Series/GregTheBunny'', ''Series/TheTick'', ''Wanda At Large'', ''Andy Richter Controls The Universe'' and ''Series/{{Action}}''. He concludes that their show only has a chance to come back in the unlikely event that ''[[{{Irony}} all]]'' [[{{Irony}} of these shows go down the tubes]].

The episode begins with Peter announcing that they've been cancelled to make room for other FOX shows, like ''DarkAngel'', ''{{Titus}}''[[note]]which actually got canceled the same year as ''Family Guy'' under different circumstances -- i.e., Christopher Titus fought with the executives over having his character and Erin break up[[/note]], ''{{Undeclared}}'', ''Action'', ''That 80s Show'', ''Wonderfalls'', ''Fastlane'', ''Andy Ricther Controls the Universe'', ''Skin'', ''Girls' Club'', ''Cracking Up'', ''The Pitts'', ''{{Firefly}}'', ''Get Real'', ''[=FreakyLinks=]'', ''Wanda at Large'', ''Costello'', ''The Lone Gunmen'', ''A Minute With Stan Hooper'', ''Normal, Ohio'', ''Pasadena'', ''Harsh Realm'', ''Keen Eddie'', ''The $treet'', ''American Embassy'', ''Cedric the Entertainer Presents'', ''The Tick''[[note]]The live-action sitcom, not the 1990s cartoon, though both got ScrewedByTheNetwork after a short run on FOX[[/note]], ''Luis'', and ''Greg the Bunny''[[note]]which, coincidentally, had Seth Green on it[[/note]]. Peter then reassures Lois that if all those shows got canned, then ''maybe'', they'd get a second [[note]](or, third, if you count the brief 2000 cancellation)[[/note]] chance.

...And they do.

We then get the story, where it kicks off with Peter and Lois going to get a second honeymoon, but Peter screws it up because he reads an Archie comic while driving. They end up at the Park Barrington Hotel, where Peter masquerades as Creator/MelGibson so that he and Lois can get into the hotel, where they find that Mel Gibson is going to make ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist II'', and take the film reel so that they can destroy it.
