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 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. 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. 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.

[[WMG: Quagmire's hatred of Brian is him projecting his own flaws onto him.]]
Referring to the above guess, this may also be the reason for Glenn's vendetta against Brian besides jealousy.

[[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 "Teig's 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.

Brian's personality just keeps reminding Quagmire of his former lifestyle. Quagmire was willing to turn his life around, which he knows Brian wouldn't do, and becomes the person we all know.

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.

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, asides from the whole lightningrod issue, because she regrets the affair which may have resulted in either of her older children.

Peter's the main instigator of being mean to Meg because he's [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritically]] projecting his own issues onto her; like he suspects of her, Peter was the child of an affair by a woman who resented the whole deal and a father who made his favoritism known with his sister. Whenever he has a PetTheDog moment with Meg, it's the rare rational side of him that wants to empathize with it.

[[WMG: Jillian had a miscarriage after "And Then There Were Fewer."]]
So, as some of you may know, there's a lot of scenes that didn't make it into "And Then There Were Fewer." One of those scenes had Jillian's husband Derek tell everyone that she's pregnant with their child. After his death, however, this is never brought up again. Not even Jillian's latest appearance acknowledged it. So it's entirely possible that [[ConvenientMiscarriage the stress of her husband's murder was enough to have her miscarry]], hence why she doesn't appear to be pregnant in her later appearances.

[[WMG: Lois and Chris are the result of affairs.]]
Chris Griffin being from some affair is rather likely, considering none of his family has blonde hair. Granted he does look somewhat like Peter, [[IncestIsRelative but since Peter's black ancestor married Lois' 19th century ancestor]], that's more understandable. That being said, there's a lesser case said that Carter may not be Lois' father; we know from her crazy brother that Barbara Pewterschmidt cheated on him. Who's to say she didn't sleep with Jackie Gleason before, and got knocked up?

In the episode Brian say's that he has considered suicide and even goes as far as keeping a gun in a safety deposit box to kill himself if things ever got to bad also with this consider all the hatred Brian's character has gotten. Now consider that Brian has always been a AuthorAvatar for Seth [[SethMacFarlane McFarlane]] and this seems to get rather dark. During this time his mother was suffering from a long battle with cancer this combined with only accidentally [[SurvivorGuilt surviving the 9/11 bombings]] may show that Seth is actually in a deep repressed depression which could connote suicidal thoughts
