* Stewie's tantrum when Peter and Chris break the TV in "Chap Stewie" can be pretty heartbreaking to watch. [[MoodWhiplash Until he bites Lois, throws a picture against the wall, and headbutts Meg hard enough to break her nose, that is.]]

** Though this is somewhat lessened by the fact that Brian never apologized for what he did, and think's it was just a small joke he did.

* 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.

* "The D in Apartment 23" has Brian being kicked out by his family after making an offensive tweet which caused everyone in Quahog to hate him and his family. To put things in perspective, the fact that he is hated and shunned by everyone, even by his own family, makes this very disheartening.

* "Believe It or Not, Joe's Walking on Air" has Joe getting a swelled head due to a successful leg transplant. It's disheartening to see him pushing aside Peter, Cleveland, Quagmire and even ''Bonnie'', to the point where all four attempt to re-cripple him so he'll stop acting like a jerk.

** Meg's {{yandere}} tendencies are a combination of this and NightmareFuel. It's pretty sad how she was once called a psycho in an episode due to her tendencies. For once, the show didn't play her tendencies for laughs and she was portrayed in the wrong for her actions.



* The awful bullying/hazing that Joyce Kinney went through in her flashback. Imagine if you wanted to become a cheerleader, only to find yourself blindfolded and with a hotdog stuck in your mouth and with your pants down on the floor, and with half the school laughing at you, to the point that you start crying. Many bullying victims can relate to this scene. This is what makes me hate Lois even more, because this scene cemented her former status as a mean girl and even worse than Connie D'Mico and [[Film/MeanGirls Regina George]] combined.

* 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.

* A very sad example, Seth has said he WANTS to end the show, but Fox won't let him, since it's such a CashCowFranchise and [[Main/CorruptCorporateExecutive Fox wants to milk it for all it's worth]], just like ''The Simpsons''. This has led to him purposely making episodes has outrageous and cruel as possible. Problem is, though, that millennials seem to love this sadist humor (which also seems to be the reason ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' is so popular). To go from legendary episodes like "Road to Rhode Island", "Death has a Shadow", and "North by North Quahog" to being trapped on your own show and wanting it just to end.... You can't help but feel for Seth and at the same time, all too easily, realize that the decline of the show, in some capacity, was Seth [=MacFarlane=] just trying to get the show cancelled.

* ''Family Guy'' [[GagSeries of all shows]] pulled one off in the episode "Brian Wallows and Peter's Swallows".

They then spent her last few moments on Earth imagining what their future would have been like together with a virtual reality helmet.]] Meanwhile, Peter [[spoiler:is forced to release some swallows who have taken up residence in his beard, and to whom he had gotten rather attached.]] Seth [=MacFarlane=] himself said this is one episode that contains "real emotional content".
