Recap: Family Guy S 4 E 21 I Take Thee Quagmire

Airdate: March 12, 2006


I Take Thee, Quagmire contains examples of:

  • Faking the Dead: Quagmire's plan so that Joan will leave.
  • Fauxdian Slip: When Quagmire discovers Joan is suicidal/homicidal:
    Joan: (angrily) I love you, Glen.
    Quagmire: I love you too, crazy woman I'm having second thoughts about.
    Joan: What?
    Quagmire: Allllll right.
  • Potty Failure: To make doubly sure that Joan believes Quagmire when he fakes a heart attack, Peter says, "When people die, they void their bowels." Nothing happens, so Peter reiterates: "I said, when people die, they void their bowels!" Cut to outside the house, where Joe, Peter, and Cleveland are heard groaning in disgust when Quagmire finally goes through with it.
    Peter: What a jackass.
  • Shout-Out: When Peter shows the videotape of Quagmire being "killed" by a dinosaur, Peter hums the Jurassic Park theme.
  • Subverted Catchphrase: After a newly-married Quagmire watches Lois's boobs jiggle: "Giggity giggity GOD! I've made a terrible mistake!"
  • Touch of Death: Joan dies when she touches Death. Moments later, a random guy from the crowd high-fives Death and instantly drops dead too.
