'''Original air date''': March 7, 2000

!!This episode contains examples of:
* BaitAndSwitch
** At the beginning of the episode:
--> '''Chris''': ''(on the phone)'' So, what are you wearing? ''(laughs)'' Wow, I bet you could see right through that.\\
'''Lois''': Chris, who are you talking to?\\
'''Chris''': ''(to Lois)'' Grandma.
** Later, Peter flashes back to the first time he peed in a toilet. It cross fades to an image of Peter as a child... then pulls out to reveal that it's a photo hanging in the family's living room as Peter runs in, zipping his pants and excitedly telling Lois "I did it!"
* BondJamesBond:
--> '''Lois''': This could be a nice way for you and Stewie to bond.\\
'''Peter''': "Bond"? ''James'' Bond. All right, Lois, I'll do it!
* {{Bowdlerize}}: Two versions of this episode exist. In one, Peter asks a [[PottyFailure urinating]] Brian, "Jeez, Brian, where do you think you are? K-Mart?" In the alternate version, which is more commonly seen, K-Mart is replaced with Payless [[labelnote:Note]](a shoe store)[[/labelnote]].
* DreamWithinADream: Seen in the cold open, where Stewie appears in Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood and kills everyone, but then he wakes up to find it was a dream. Lois then [[LatexPerfection peels off her rubber mask and wig]] to reveal Mr. Rogers, and then Stewie wakes up for real (complete with CatapultNightmare).
* GoToYourRoom: [[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons George Jetson]] says this to Elroy before he chews out Jane for not rescuing him from the out-of-control conveyor belt.
* InterspeciesRomance: Brian has the hots for Lois.
* PottyFailure: What causes Brian to seek therapy.
* SarcasmBlind: When Stewie refuses to use the toilet:
--> '''Peter''': Maybe you don't have to pee. I oughta just give you some beer. Goes right through you.\\
'''Stewie''': Wonderful. And while we're at it, we can light up a doobie and watch porn.\\
'''Peter''': Y... yeah?
* ShoutOut: Brian describes one of his dreams to the therapist: It's a parody of ''Film/LogansRun''. In the same sequence, Brian (who is old enough to be executed) rats on [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]]:
--> '''Brian''': What about him? He's gotta be in his ''fifties''!
* StagingAnIntervention: One cutaway features Peter's family and friends having an intervention for his refusal to take off a giant foam cowboy hat.
* TakeThat:
** In one scene, Peter says, "Lots of crazy people have gone on to lead normal, successful lives." Cue a still shot of Dan Rather.
** In one cutaway, Brian accidentally runs over who he thinks is Creator/StephenKing with his car; when he finds out it's Creator/DeanKoontz, he backs over the body.
** The aforementioned [[{{Bowdlerize}} K-Mart/Payless]] line either way.
* TalkingAnimal: Peter flat out ''forgets'' Brian can talk in one scene.
--> '''Brian''': He [the therapist], uh thinks I'm in love.\\
'''Peter''': Oh my God! You can talk!\\
'''Brian''': Nevermind.
* ToiletTrainingPlot: Peter tries to toilet train Stewie after he thought he'd peed on the rug when it was actually Brian. Also in this episode, there's a cutaway gag where Charles Lindbergh tries to potty-train his six-month-old son, but the baby gets flushed down the toilet, so Charles lies that the boy was kidnapped.
* YouKeepTellingYourselfThat:
--> '''Brian''': Lois. Well, she's a fantastic woman. She's compassionate and charming, attractive. Well, stunning really. I guess you could say I really-\\
'''Therapist''': Love her?\\
'''Brian''': No, of course not. Me and Lois? That's sick. Come on, she's my best friend's wife. Look, I love Lois, but I'm not ''in'' love with her.\\
'''Therapist''': Mm-hm. Who are you trying to convince, Brian, me or you?\\
'''Brian''': ...Oh, Brian, Brian. What a mess.
