[[WMG: Peter is actually an evil hypnotist/brainwasher.]]
Peter's supposed to be mentally retarded, but he's shown to be capable of some feats of incredible intelligence, breaks character to make off-handed and witty remarks, and always seems to get his way. Not only are his memories inconsistent, but it seems like the memories of other people in Quahog are also inconsistent. Peter seems capable of incredible physical feats as well. Furthermore, we see a personality shift in many of the characters after season 8. It seems way too easy for Peter to control a crowd, start a cult, and achieve incredible levels of fame, especially through methods known to induce trance states in people. Peter has also shown the ability to induce high levels of receptivity in his friends and family, seemingly through conversation alone. Peter may be a consultant of the C.I.A., perhaps having participated in MK-ULTRA, which was a C.I.A. program to, among other things, develop mind-control methods. After the program fell apart, Peter would have been left without a job, perhaps burned, and with no work history for a very long period of time after his initial training in Hypnotherapy. He wants somewhere to start over, perhaps just to secure a well-paying job, but it has to be somewhere relatively out of the C.I.A.'s realm of interest, so he picks the small town of Quahog, Rhode Island. While there, many different people come to Peter for therapy, but as any hypnotherapist will tell you, the goal of Hypnotherapy is the same as the goal of any other form of counseling or therapy: basically, to eventually put yourself out of a job, at least with your current clientele. Faced with the prospects of being too successful, Peter devises a nefarious plan: since so many of Quahog's lynchpin citizens are coming to him with their problems, he can thoroughly and permanently establish himself in that town. But again, his clients no longer have a need for him, and hypnosis cannot alter your mentality enough to get past your inhibitions, so he has to use brainwashing techniques on his remaining clients. Originally, he planned to have them remain as permanent clients, but he was getting too much attention because of the suspicious nature of his work, so to keep the C.I.A. from taking a sudden interest, he had to literally create a new life for himself as a lynchpin character in Quahog. Initially, he was attracted to Meg and wanted her for himself, but Meg was married to Chris, so he had to make them believe that they were siblings. Things got complicated when he thought that he could have Meg and Lois, and when they found out about each-other, they became suspicious of Peter's brainwashing, so he changed Meg and Chris to his children, and Lois became his wife. Stewie was a brilliant little person, who was on to what Peter was doing; in a panic, Peter kidnapped him, brainwashed him to believe that he was an infant and a part of the family, and convinced them that Stewie was his son... Lois' son, and Meg and Chris' younger brother. Brian was another animal experiment from the C.I.A., who was sent to find Peter after he suddenly disappeared, because they couldn't afford to leave any loose ends after MK-ULTRA, so Brian eventually tracked Peter to Quahog. When Peter found out about Brian, he brainwashed him into a new life, where Brian was his best friend and a sort of adopted member of the family. With all these sudden changes, however, the citizenry of Quahog became suspicious, so, starting with those closest to the "Griffin" family, Peter expanded his operation to include the most well-known citizens of Quahog. This explains why their behavior is so erratic and inconsistent: deep down inside of themselves, their original personalities still exist, and are conflicting with their new personae. Their memories are all so jumbled because, to supplement the brainwashing, Peter was using hypnosis; he's had to change their memories so many times, they remember so many conflicting things, but they've been brainwashed to just accept them and compartmentalize. To keep up appearances, Peter has abducted and brainwashed occasional vagrants to serve as members of his own family. As time has passed, the C.I.A. have lost their concern over the MK-ULTRA project's aftermath, and are no longer looking for Peter. Over time, a combination of self-hypnosis, deeply-rooted guilt, and the strain of keeping up appearances in his new life have led to Peter slowly going insane. Though he doesn't need to keep brainwashing or hypnotizing people in Quahog, there is still the danger that they'll come out of it, remember what happened, and eventually get their revenge on Peter. For the time being, he's convinced himself, and everyone else around him, that he's just a lovable buffoon...

[[WMG: Connie D'Amico is Fat Tony's long-lost illegitimate daughter.]]
Fat Tony from ''The Simpsons'' also has the surname D'Amico and both shows are revealed to exist in the same universe in "The Simpsons Guy." Connie's father figure seen in "Let's Go to the Hop" is actually her stepfather as Brian correctly guesses in "Barely Legal," and in "Stew-Roids," Connie mentions that her father died, meaning that the episode takes place after Fat Tony died in "Donnie Fatso."

[[WMG: Herbert repressed his real memories of the concentration camp.]]
As he told the story, he was sent to a concentration camp rather than a POW camp when the Nazis mistook him for being gay. The head of the camp was a sadistic monster who either ordered people to be killed or perform hard labor. Herbert's "hard labor" was a simple task of bagging up empty soda bottles and claiming that getting the sticky syrup on his hands was a horrible experience. While the show has that type of odd humor, that is pretty light punishment for a concentration camp and the episode doesn't pull any punches depicting Gutentag as a vicious person. More likely story? Herbert was forced to do something horrible, such as burying dead bodies, and his mind repressed it, but needing to remember that he had been in the camp, changed the memory to something much milder. He's also quite old and his memory may be affected, yet his recollections of the rest of the events seemed quite clear. Considering that real life trauma victims often forget the event, this is not impossible.

The episode ends with Brenda grieving over Jeff "leaving her." She does not develop a backbone in the episode, and will likely only end up in another abusive relationship. In the episode, it is briefly mentioned that Jeff has a brother, so she might make him her ReplacementGoldfish to cope with not having him around. He would likely turn out to be just as bad as Jeff, or even worse. The episode could end with Brenda shedding her ExtremeDoormat tendencies and learning to stand on her own two feet, after Peter, Joe, Quagmire, and now Cleveland try to kill Jeff's brother and fail, possibly due to the brother knowing what really happened to Jeff and preparing for it. He'd turn the tables on them, and would be about to kill them before Brenda gets a BigDamnHeroes moment and tells him [[NotAfraidOfYouAnymore she isn't afraid of him anymore]], and kills or otherwise incapacitates him.

[[WMG: Brenda is a masochist who likes being abused]]
Remember when Brian initially mistook Quagmire's abused sister for a one-night stand who liked rough sex? That actually may be not too far off from the truth if one were to interpret Brenda's submissive behavior as someone who enjoys abuse? Maybe she likes playing the role of a meek, submissive girlfriend and has Jeff portray the dominant, abusive boyfriend. And given that Brenda never grows a backbone or sees Jeff for who he is...

** Add to that it seems to be slowly evolving two ways as well. In "Quagmire's Dad" and "And Then There Were Fewer" Brian starts to give light verbal retaliation to Quagmire's vindictiveness towards him. By "Teigs For Two" he equally lashes at him and outright starts an EscalatingWar with him for giving him (at least in his view) bad dating advise. The show seems to be slowly evolving the two into {{Sitcom Arch Nemesis}}es.

Lois did cheat on Peter with Bill Clinton and as a joke on "In Harmony's Way", plus she was known as [[ReallyGetsAround "Loose Lois"]]. There's also the fact that the Griffins have a history of infidelity; both Lois' parents cheated on each other, and Peter is the result of an affair her mother had with an Irish man. We know Stewie is 100% Peter's son, though the others? While Stan Thompson may not be Meg's literal father, the point still stands that Peter has a legitimate fear that he's been cuckolded. It's one of the primary reasons why he treats Meg as TheUnfavourite [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe as he seriously suspects she isn't his daughter]]. Suspicions lay on Meg and not Chris because [[StrongFamilyResemblance he looks a lot like him]] and he's mostly sure of his paternity, but isn't completely sure which is why he still treats him like crap. Lois is cruel to Meg because, asides from the whole lightningrod issue, because she regrets the affair which may have resulted in either of her older children.

[[WMG: Carol lost custody of her son.]]
Given that we never see her baby again after "Emission Impossible," it seems likely that her ex-husband Ted would win sole custody of their son. Plus, given that he may've [[GoldDigger only been interested in her for her money to begin with]], he probably saw how sad she was without him and decided to take the only good thing to come out of their marriage with him [[KickTheDog just to twist the knife further]].

Everything that he said to hate about him is true, but the more hypocritical parts could actually imply some jealousy towards him. He calls him out on hitting on Lois when he himself has done it, but Brian has been more successful to the point of marrying her in "The Perfect Castaway" while Quagmire's attempts always seem to fail. Pointing his failure as a father to Dylan might be because it reminds him of his own failures to many more illegitimate children, and Brian was ultimately willing to help Dylan, making him somewhat better than him. Quagmire could have kept these feelings to himself before Brian's later preachiness and atheism caused him to become just as fed up with the fans about him and tell him what they think about his inflated ego.

He calls him out for "dating bimbos" while he himself claims he's [[AtLeastIAdmitIt "honest about it"]], even though he's drugged/raped probably dozens of women; while Brian at least tries to be respectful towards the women he dates. Pointing out his failure as a father to Dylan might be because it reminds him of his own failures to Anna Lee (who he gave up for adoption) and many more illegitimate children, and while Brian was ultimately willing to help Dylan, Dylan (who chose to stay behind to help take care of his mother), making him somewhat better than him.

Except maybe the [[IndenticalGrandson blatant resemblance to Peter.]] Sure, Peter's relative cutaways are absurd, but then again so is the series. Plus his personal life is as wacky as his bloodline. Being simple-minded, Peter probably calls all his ancestors "Griffin" even if they aren't members of the Griffin family-though this could be true one way [[IncestIsRelative or another.]] And in the [[RuleOfFunny MacFarlane universe]], [[FamousAncestor famous people have gotten into enough wackiness to get around]] [[ReallyGetsAround quite a bit.]] Now for how they may all be relatedÖ

Glenn does get his promiscuity from his mother, and he doesn't look much like his dad/transgender mother. In reality, his biological father is none other than [[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad Jack Smith]]. Yeah I know he's supposedly too young(65 versus 61), but Jack's a con-man and could be lying about his age. Incidentally this is how he and Stan have the noticable chin; they're half-siblings.

* Or... Crystal cheated on Ida with Stan Smith's grandfather which resulted in Glenn being born. This would make Glenn and Jack Smith half-brothers and in turn, would make Stan Smith his nephew. This also makes Glenn Brenda and Gary's older half-brother.
