** It is strongly implied that a After being bucked off the back of his bull - a 1,000 male steer - in the rodeo, it rapes Peter in the middle of a rodeo arena, and nobody seems inclined to lift a finger to help him.



* BrickJoke: After the bull rapes Peter, it "suggests" that Peter could maybe stop by its place for further sexual encounters. Later in the episode, the bull calls Peter on the phone and tells him to come over for sex, with Peter giving Lois and Brian an excuse about being needed at work before hurrying over.



* TooDumbToLive and WhatAnIdiot: Brian. While he tries to talk Meg out or robbing Mort's pharmacy, it doesn't occur to him that trying to reason with her with words would get him killed.

*** Before that, Peter's choice to enter the rodeo; as Lois immediately points out, he knows nothing about riding and is in terrible physical condition. Sure enough, he gets quickly bucked off of the bull's back, and it then rapes him to exert its dominance.

* PoorCommunicationKills: If Brian had simply asked Meg directly for an interview for his article, as opposed to basically stalking her, he wouldn't have stumbled onto her dark secret. Likewise, he had another opportunity to directly confront Meg when he finds out said secret, but tells her parents behind her back instead, without giving her so much as warning.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Brian's snitching and Lois' lack of sympathy make them largely responsible for Meg's transformation.

** Luke also qualifies, only robbing a store to support his mother, according to Meg. But that's not good enough, according to the law, her family, or anyone who cares to interpret more criminal behavior he may be hiding.

* ParentalHypocrisy: NegativeContinuity aside, Lois telling off Meg for dating a convict doesn't seem so in-place when you remember that she was once arrested for shoplifting. Same goes for Peter, who has been arrested far more times than Lois.

Same goes for Peter, who has been arrested far more times than Lois. This later gets played for laughs when Peter says Meg should be careful who she gets involved with--immediately before getting a call from the bull who raped him earlier demanding him for "some coitus".
