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.
  • 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.

    • Also to Castaway (Brian living outside and growing a shaggy beard)
