After "winning" at Trivial Pursuit during game night with the neighbors, Peter deludes himself into thinking he's a genius and Brian challenges him to take the [=MacArthur=] Genius Grant test to make it official. When the results come back, however, Peter and the others find out that, technically speaking, Peter's "mentally retarded." After initially grousing over it, decides to take advantage of it, as people are more forgiving of those with mental retardation. As always, Peter takes it too far and ends up injuring his wife and getting the kids taken from him by Child Welfare.

* DepartmentOfChildDisservices: Inverted, since Peter has given social services every reason to think he is horrible father and place them with the more level headed Cleveland in the meantime.

* JerkJustifications: Peter uses ''every and any'' excuse to act like a complete prick to those around him. When he wins a rigged Trivial Pursuit he becomes conceited and talks down to everyone, when he discovers he is retarded he exploits his condition to get away with any trouble he causes. When it finally bites him back and he has to prove his entitlement to his kids, he decides to do so by framing Cleveland (their current guardian) for mistreatment.

* TooDumbToLive: Peter. Justified in that this episode reveals that, technically speaking, Peter's mentally retarded, so all those past times he did stupid things was because of mental retardation and not him being an expy of [[TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]] (though some ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' detractors will still believe this).
** The entire cast decide to play Paintball with real police guns. Only Lois briefly questions the idea.
-->'''Peter:''' Alright, alright. Nobody fire at Lois, she's scared.

* DeletedScene + {{Bowdlerization}}: On the DVD version, there's a scene after Peter talks to Joe about what it's like to be disabled (even though Joe is physically disabled while Peter is mentally disabled) where Joe calls everyone to tell them that Peter is retarded (the whole scene is a musical parody of the telephone scene from ''Bye Bye Birdie''). It was edited on FOX because the censors did not like the overuse of the word, "retarded."
