Recap / Family Guy S 12 E 19 Meg Stinks

When Peter takes Meg to a college interview, the two finally bond over partying. Meanwhile, Brian is forced to live outside after being sprayed by a skunk.

Tropes associated with this episode include:

  • Afraid Of Lightning: Brian insists that nothing will make him go back to an indoor life. Then a thunderstorm starts.
  • Badass Beard: Brian grows one while living outside.
  • Distant Finale: It ends with Meg giving a narrative about how she ended up getting into college, but was teased mercilessly and got an STD her first year.
  • Double-Meaning Title: "Meg Stinks" may seem like a Portmanteau of Meg's plot and the skunk plot, but when you think about it, Meg's willingness to neglect her college interview, among other things, kind of proves that this Meg stinks.
  • Healing Factor: After Peter's hand gets severed by a bridge, not only does he regrow a new hand, but the severed hand grows into a clone of him.
    My name is Retep and I am evil.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Smelly Skunk: The basis of the B-plot.
  • Twist Ending: The B-Plot. Adam West has been watching the whole thing through a crystal ball.
