Airdate: November 25, 2012

. Meanwhile, Stewie gets a pet turtle who's out to kill him.
"Lois Comes Out Of Her Shell" provides examples of (YMMV goes here!)
- Accidental Hero: By replacing Meg's sleeping pills with allka-seltzer, Sheldon just may have saved her life.
- Ax-Crazy: Sheldon is one psychotic turtle.
- Before My Time: Bieber doesn't get the references to The Graduate and American Pie.
- Big Damn Heroes: Sheldon is about to finally kill Stewie, but then he's jumped on by Mario.
Stewie: Oh, my God, Super Mario? What are you doing here?
Mario: I jump on a turtles, Stewie. It's not an exciting life, but it's my life.
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Lois and two other girls she hangs out with.
- Driven to Suicide: Meg tries to kill herself by overdosing on sleeping pills, but Stewie's homicidal pet turtle replaces them with Alka-Seltzer tablets, so instead of dying she lets out a long burp.
- Gainax Ending:
Peter Griffin: Ladies and Gentleman, Mr. Conway Beiber.
- Hollywood Mid-Life Crisis: the plot focuses on Lois going through a mid-life crisis. She starts speaking in l33t and text message abbreviations, wears skimpy clothes, gets a lot raunchier with Peter, and culminates with her trying to have sex with Justin Bieber. As expected, Lois is back to her old self by the end of the episode.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Peter starts out as a jerkass, but eventually turns into this in the end. Brian was this because he suggested a party and called Peter out on his jerkassery. Lois too.
- Mrs. Robinson: Invoked. Lois is trying to seduce Justin Bieber and she refers to herself as Mrs. Robinson. Justin misses the reference.
- Ms. Fanservice: Lois, more than usual. Her new look is really sexy with a skimpy outfit and different hairstyle. She has also a scene where she seduces Peter with Godiva Hair and wearing only her panties.
- Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Sheldon.
