After "winning" at Trivial Pursuit during game night with the neighbors, Peter deludes himself into thinking he's actually a genius--Brian challenges him to take the [=MacArthur=] Genius Grant-IQ test to make it official. But when the test results come in, it turns out that Peter's not a genius--in fact, his IQ is apparently so low that the test declares him to be "mentally retarded" (in a technical-sense). After initially grousing over it, Peter decides to take advantage of it because people are more forgiving of those with mental retardation (and other disabilities). As always, Peter takes it too far and ends up injuring his wife and getting the kids taken from him by Child Welfare.

* TooDumbToLive: Peter. Justified in that this episode reveals that, technically speaking, he's mentally retarded, so all those past times he did stupid things was presumably because of mental retardation and not him being an expy of [[TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]] (though some ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' detractors will still believe this).
