* FanPreferredCouple: Brian and Stewie. Fans really, really, ''{{r|uleThirtyFour}}eally'' like those two.
** There's alot of Lois/Brian and Brian/Meg in RuleThirtyFour as well.


Added DiffLines:

* FauxSymbolism: Sometimes it is implied that Chris is some sort of MessianicArchetype - his name, his disposition as the kindest and most innocent member of the family and his blond hair all go towards this. Sometimes the jokes are pushed a little further, such as when he was cast as Luke Skywalker when Peter parodied the story of ''StarWars,'' and when he dressed up as Optimus Prime from ''{{Transformers}},'' both of whom are messianic archetypes themselves. Of course it's all a gag.

* FairForItsDay: In "The Fat Guy Strangler", Peter starts an organization that advocates the promotion of fat men and the episode deconstructs has idea to do so. Years later came the fat acceptance movement which would denounce the negative portrayal his organization's members.

** Season 9 shows that the writers are going out of their way to improve the show as much as possible, as the show is now in 720p high-definition, the stories are better written (though some weak episodes do crop up), there are now actually pretty emotional moments every now and then, and the humor has been stepping up in quality as less and less recycled gags are used, though most critics after season seven have blasted the show for not being as funny as it used to be and writing off seasons 8, 9, and 10 as SeasonalRot.

** Remember the joke where Peter once shot Meg in the face just for saying hi to him? http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/sumner/hendersonville/2016/08/08/child-shot-hendersonville/88424374/ Not so funny now is it?



* IdiotPlot: The conflict of "Quagmire's Mom" would have been resolved much sooner if somebody pointed out that the teenage girl Quagmire slept with lied about her age, meaning ''she'' should have been the one on trial.

* BrokenBase: As far as the general public's opinion of the show goes, you're in one of three camps: "''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' Is The Best Show Ever," "''Family Guy'' Sucks Because It's A Rip-Off of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and/or ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''," or "''Family Guy'' Used to Be Good Until [insert SeasonalRot scenario here: "They Revived It In 2005," or "Brian Became a Preachy Liberal."
