'''Instead:''' He offers Brian a free revenge shot at him to make up for all the abuse he caused, to which Brian accepts but says he will not tell him when the hit will be delivered. This leads to Stewie becoming increasingly paranoid to the point of begging Brian to hit him, even going as far as beating himself up to placate him. Later, Brian gets his revenge by shoving Stewie in front of an moving bus.\\

** Also from the episode:
Brian is trying to avoid Stewie, and he sees him playing golf in the hallway so he [[PaperThinDisguise puts on a mustache]], hoping to sneak past him.

'''Worse Still:''' It's never explained at all why Jeff abuses Brenda, or why she even puts up with the abuse in the first place; and her behavior does not help her case. When Lois and Quagmire straight up tell her that Jeff should not be treating her so horribly, she laughs it off and says that Jeff is sweet. This makes her come off as someone who's either oblivious to the abuse, or she just doesn't care.

'''You'd Expect:''' Quagmire to just comply and agree to forget it and grab the gun while Jeff had is guard down or go back home and try something else \\
'''Instead:''' Quagmire says they can't just forget the whole thing in front of him and Jeff takes him into the woods to kill him.

'''Instead:''' Quagmire says they can't just forget the whole thing in front of him and Jeff takes him into the woods to kill him. Fortunately, Quagmire survives Jeff's attempts to strangle him and successfully kills the bastard by running him over with his car.


Added DiffLines:

** Brenda herself also has one.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For her at some point, to realize what Jeff is doing to her and try to seek help, which Lois and Quagmire have been trying to convince her to do.\\
'''Instead:''' She '''STILL''' remains loyal to Jeff, even with his repeated assaults on her. And when he is later killed by the boys, Brenda is left emotionally scarred by him "leaving" her. Which means that if she ever returns, she'll probably end up in another abusive relationship.\\

* "Finder's Keppers'": In a sequence very similar to [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Yakko, Wakko and Dot's]] '''what an idiot''' moment in ''[[WesternAnimation/WakkosWish Wakko's Wish]]'', when the Griffin family find the clue in a scavenger hunt style treasure hunt, Brian suggests they keep it a secret and not tell anybody else about it.:\\

'''You'd Expect:''' Joe to arrest Jeff on the spot for his behavior.\\
'''Instead:''' He does nothing, claiming [[ArtisticLicenseLaw he cannot prosecute Jeff unless Brenda herself files a report]]. Now while this would normally be true if the abuse were happening behind closed doors, bear in mind that Jeff up to this point has made absolutely '''NO''' effort to hide his abuse of Brenda, and even beats her '''in front of Joe's face'''!

'''Instead:''' She decides to roofie him and fabricates a story about Chris wanting to have sex with Kent but having to pretend to be asleep during the act, not realizing that [[DidntThinkThisThrough Chris wouldn't be able to tell Meg about what it was like sleeping with Kent if he was drugged and unconscious- and also failing to realize that even if he could tell her what it was like, he'd completely lack an incentive to tell a person who had him drugged and raped what it was like to sleep with his unwitting rapist]]. She does have a HeelRealization and calls out the plan, but it was too little, too late when Kent and Chris find out about her plan. Ultimately, Kent, already creeped out by Meg's advances toward him, avoids her altogether, fully convinced she's a complete psycho--[[{{Yandere}} and he's not exactly wrong]].

'''Instead:''' Brian goes into the store, sees what Meg is doing, and threatens to call the cops if Meg doesn't put the gun away. Yes, ''now'' he gives her a warning, and it's in a situation where Meg could have easily turned around and shot Brian. That said, what little that remains of the real Meg could be preventing her from straight-up murdering him, but it's still pretty stupid.
