Recap: Family Guy S 4 E 1 North By North Quahog
The episode begins with Peter announcing that they've been cancelled to make room for other FOX shows, like Dark Angel, Titusnote , Undeclared, Action, That 80s Show, Wonderfalls, Fastlane, Andy Ricther Controls the Universe, Skin, Girls' Club, Cracking Up, The Pitts, Firefly, Get Real, FreakyLinks, Wanda at Large, Costello, The Lone Gunmen, A Minute With Stan Hooper, Normal, Ohio, Pasadena, Harsh Realm, Keen Eddie, The $treet, American Embassy, Cedric the Entertainer Presents, The Ticknote , Luis, and Greg the Bunnynote . Peter then reassures Lois that if all those shows got canned, then maybe, they'd get a second note  chance.

...And they do.

We then get the story, where it kicks off with Peter and Lois going to get a second honeymoon, but Peter screws it up because he reads an Archie comic while driving. They end up at the Park Barrington Hotel, where Peter masquerades as Mel Gibson so that he and Lois can get into the hotel, where they find that Mel Gibson is going to make The Passion of the Christ II, and take the film reel so that they can destroy it.

"North By North Quahog" contains examples of:

  • Disney Villain Death: Mel Gibson.
  • Epic Fail: Peter forgetting how to sit down.
  • Take That: When Meg asks Chris to turn the channel to The George Lopez Show, Chris says the show perpetuates the stereotype that George Lopez is funny.
  • Uncanceled: Peter takes this the wrong way.
  • Was Too Hard on Him: Stewie asks Brian this when he spanks Chris after catching him with vodka, despite that Chris was framed by a student.
    Stewie: Do you think we were too hard on Chris tonight?
    Brian: What? Oh, God. No, no. I don't...I don't think so. Do you?
    Stewie: Oh, no, I just always feel badly when we have to be strict.
