'''Original air date''': April 30, 2006

To make the citizens forget that he blew their tax money on a gold statue of the Sugar Smack Dig 'Em Frog, Mayor West drafts a bill that will make all same-sex marriages illegal, which is a problem for Brian (who goes to great lengths to have the bill vetoed so his gay cousin Jasper can marry his Filipino boyfriend), Chris (who only agrees with the anti-gay marriage bill so he can feel up a BlondeRepublicanSexKitten at school), and Lois (who was raised to think that heterosexual marriage is the only acceptable marriage in the world).
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Two escalating examples when Stewie looks through a candy jar the Pewterschmidt house. The third item he finds is a Luden's cough drop and the fourth is a fishing lure.

-->'''Mort:''' You're not welcome in Quahog, Dig Them.
* HypocriticalHumor: [[DirtyOldMan Herbert and Quagmire]] refuse to sign Brian's gay marriage petition: Quagmire refuses because he believes marriage and sex should be between two heterosexuals[[note]]this, coming from a man who has had sex with a male-to-female transsexual from The Philippines and a man on a tractor, among other people and things[[/note]] and Herbert (who is a homosexual pedophile) calls Brian a sick pervert and slams the door in his face.
* InterspeciesRomance: A cutaway involves an elephant and a penguin having a hybrid baby on Noah's Ark.

'''Elephant''': What?\\
'''Noah''': Did you ''name'' it?\\
'''Elephant''': Uh, yeah, he's Paul.\\
'''Noah''': Yeah, well it's gonna be a lot harder to name it now, 'cause it's going the fuck overboard.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Stewie's advice to Meg:
--> '''Stewie''': You hear that Meg? Guys can marry other guys now. So, ummm... this is awkward, but... I mean, if they can do that.. that's pretty much ''it'' for you, isn't it? Might as well pack it in, game over.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Lois when she realizes that her views on gay marriage were the result of her parents' poor excuse for a marriage.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: One cutaway involves UsefulNotes/BillClinton going to retrieve his mail... in the nude.
--> '''Clinton''': (singing) Oh this is one fine day to be nude! / Yes, this is one fine day to be nude! / The birds are singing, "Clinton, have a wonderful spring", / ''[starts skipping]'' And people walking by can stop and look at my thing! / Oh this is one fine day-\\

'''Chris''': Liberal chubby-chaser!\\
'''Clinton''': Hahahahaha, well, [[SelfDeprecation if you can't laugh at yourself...]]

* TomatoInTheMirror: Parodied when Adam West gets hit by a brick and bleeds from his nose.
