* 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.

** 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".

** Peter. Chris even lampshades this: "For God's sake Dad, have some humility, it'll save your life!"
** Even Luke gets this at one point. While running from Joe, a handicapped cop, he thought it was a good idea to run downhill, allowing Joe to get the edge needed to re-arrest him. Lampshaded by Meg.
