When Peter sets off to write a book, Lois shoots him down and insists he spend time with Stewie while she goes out. While they watch television together, Peter becomes hooked on a children's TV show called the "Jolly Farm Revue." Engrossed in the show, Peter loses track of Stewie; Lois finds the 1-year-old and scolds Peter for his continued irresponsible behavior, leaving Peter to wish she was more like Mother Maggie. But when Mother Maggie announces the show will be going off the air, Peter creates and stars in his own children's TV show called "Petey's Playhouse." Lois is surprised that Peter managed to get a show and isn't sure how things will work out.Peter's television act proves to be a bit over-the-top for his audience, to say the least. In addition, Lois continues to be upset with Peter spending his nights out, neglecting his family responsibilities. In response, Peter makes a "Saggy Naggy" puppet of Lois and presents her as a shrew who is out to stop him from engaging in his decadent pleasures and having all the preschool-aged kids he wants. Lois finds out that her puppet's reputation has followed her to real life as she is attacked by children. When Peter wants to spend a night making love, Lois turns him away. Peter confronts her about her nagging and Lois agrees to quit nagging in exchange for Peter to quit using the puppet., but Peter – still upset over what he views as Lois' unjust criticizing his behavior – refuses. Later, Peter announces he plans to do a comedy routine with a wild puma. Lois initially refuses, thinking that Peter is just buffing, but when she sees that Peter is serious, she rushes to the studio to try to stop her husband from making a foolish decision that could cost him his life.Too late.At the studio, and on live TV, Peter unveils the puma and – poking it with a stick, agitating the already angry animal in an attempt to draw laughs from the kiddie audience – proceeds with the routine. Immediately after the cage is opened, the puma pounces on Peter and it attacks Peter, seriously mauling him.Meanwhile, Meg does well in biology class and her teacher sets her up with an internship with Dr. Hartman at the hospital. She shadows Dr. Hartman around she finds out he not only is grossly incompetent, but consistently gives incorrect advice. Meg, meanwhile, proves to know far more than Dr. Hartman ever could, and when he leaves to take a break, she begins examining a patient; however, another doctor confronts her and forces her to leave, ending her shadowing experience abruptly.Meg learns about Peter's life being in grave danger, arrives at the studio and is able to stop the bleeding, saving her father's life. At the hospital, where Peter regains consciousness, Peter admits that he was wrong for disputing Lois' advice, and Lois said she only nags because she loves him. However, Peter refuses to get the hint when Meg points out that she saved his life, merely asking for a glass of water.
