* In "Seahorse Party" (part two of the SethMacFarlane hurricane crossover special, featuring ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' and ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'') Meg's breakdown at her life as a ChewToy. Especially all the [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech Reason You Suck Speeches]] she gives to Chris, Lois and Peter about how much of a bunch of jerks they are. Even further is her acceptance at being a ChewToy to keep the family from falling apart.

* Twelve-year-old Camilla Stull, who had fought a three-year battle with leukemia, had her dream of being an actress come true when Creator/DrewBarrymore introduced her to SethMacFarlane and gave her a voice-over role in "Boys Do Cry". She died 13 days before it aired.

*** HOWEVER...all this it notably retconned ''Christmas Guy'', in which Brian [[spoiler: was saved from ever having been killed]]; since then, his death has been written out of the Family Guy continuity and has become much easier for fans to talk about -- mostly in the form of angry protests that SethMacFarlane toyed with fans' emotions or doesn't have the guts to radically change the show by killing off a main character.

* Brian's BreakTheHaughty moment in "Brian's Play".

* Brian's BreakTheHaughty moment in "Brian's Play". Brian's play was pedestrian and cheesy, but it was ''his'' and one of the few things he's made that other people actually liked. Yeah, him trying to hide that Stewie had real talent just so he could keep his delusions was a big dick move, but a lot of creators can empthasize with him. You work and you slave, and even your best just isnt good enough, while others can just pull the damn Mona Lisa out of their ass like its nothing.

* Really, the inhumane treatment of Meg in the later seasons. Meg is somehow considered ugly (even though she's actually reasonably attractive), and her parents seem to treat her as either a punching bag or inhuman. You have to ask yourself how long it will be until Meg truly snaps and kills or threatens to kill everyone who has ever wronged her.

* The very first episode "Death Has A Shadow", though heaped with EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, has a surprisingly earnest one from Peter. After he loses his job, and attempts tax benefit fraud to keep a roof under his head, he is sent to court. Lois, more outraged he lied to her than the crime he committed, shuns Peter the whole time, until she hears him cut the act and confess to the judge in remorse:
-->'''Peter:''' Okay, everybody, I feel really bad about what I did. I just... I don't know. I just saw one chance I'd ever have to give my family the things they deserve. I guess I screwed it up. I cheated the government. And worst of all, I lied to my wife. And she deserves better. I'm sorry, honey.

* In "Peter's Sister" it revealed that Peter got a jerkass sister name Karen who bullies him WAY worse than what he does to Meg. Karen calld him "Pee-Pee", tells embrassing stories about him, and what worse is she humilate him by almost breakibg his arms in her signature wrestling move "The Toxic Shock" which made him stuttered and pee his pants.

His friends and family especially Meg out of all people feel sorry for Peter (despite how he treated her over the years). What worse is that Peter's parents didn't do anything to stop Karen from picking on Peter in childhood.

** And yet then Brian goes around and stabs Quagmire in the back. It wouldn't be bad if it was Peter as a revenge ploy.... but this was a guy who helped him when Peter was the one who abused him. Yet he chose the one guy who ACTUALLY had the guts to help him and play him like that... heart wrenching.

* Right at the end of the episode Yum Ylimaf, it was slightly heart breaking when the Griffins leave the hospital with the newly born Stewie and Peter asks "Is he smart? Or is he.... like me?".

* In the otherwise hilarious "Road to Germany", the scene where nerdy Jewish ButtMonkey Mort Goldman, transported back in time to Warsaw in September of 1939, dances happily-- the only moment of happiness we've ever seen the character have-- with all of his old relatives at a wedding while "Tradition" from ''Fiddler on the Roof'' plays, interspersed with the Nazi invasion. It was as though the writers were acknowledging that even a BlackComedy like ''Family Guy'' has to address the Holocaust with at least one moment of solemnity before getting back to ThoseWackyNazis.
