Recap: Family Guy S 3 E 21 Family Guy Viewer Mail One
Airdate: February 14, 2002

In this, the first series finale (now considered a fauxnale), Brian and Stewie show three stories based on viewer requests. In "No Bones About It," a genie grants Peter three of which leaves Peter a boneless blob, in "Super Griffins," the family gets hit with radioactive waste and gain superhero powers (but don't use them for good), and Peter and the other adults of Quahog are troublemaking children in the Our Gang parody, "L'il Griffins."

This episode contains examples of:

"No Bones About It" contains examples of:

  • Artistic License Biology: Peter is more able to function without bones than he should be if the show followed reality.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Chris mentions that a friend of his beat him up because he lost his shoe in Peter's boneless body.
  • Horrible Hollywood: "So this is where all the waste ends up!"
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Peter, not wanting his family to put up with the burden of tending his boneless body, willingly goes down the drain of the bathtub.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: The man who threatens to beat up Peter is modeled after and voiced by wrestler Bill Goldberg.
  • Take That: Peter notes that Hollywood is where all the waste and sewage ends up, a jab at Hollywood acting and writing being crappy and lowest common denominator.

"Super Griffins" contains examples of:

"Lil' Griffins" contains examples of:
