Recap: Family Guy S 4 E 23 Deep Throats
Airdate: April 9, 2006

Brian sets out to prove that Adam West is a corrupt politician after getting a parking ticket and discovering his illicit affair with Meg (who is working as his office intern). Meanwhile, Peter and Lois sign up for a talent show as a singer-songwriter duo, and turn to marijuana for inspiration.

"Deep Throats" contains examples of (YMMV goes here):

  • And Knowing Is Half the Battle: Chris gives a speech about the dangers of marijuana at the end. According to DVD commentary, the writers had to shoehorn a speech about the dangers of marijuana because the FOX censors wouldn't let them do the subplot of Lois and Peter smoking pot to find "inspiration" for their songs.
  • Brick Joke: Brian is seen intentionally passing Cleveland hailing a cab (with Cleveland mistaking the gesture as a sign of racism, when really it was Brian suddenly remembering that he had to buy milk for Lois). Near the end, Cleveland is seen trashing his cab in retaliation.
  • Chastity Couple: Meg and Mayor West. Mayor West even said he would wait for Meg until she was of legal age to have sex (whether it was 18note , 21note , or 25note ).
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Cleveland flipping Brian off as he drives off wasn't censored — at least the first time around.
  • Mushroom Samba: Peter and Lois, under the influence of marijuana, imagine they're in a land of sweets and ice cream and try to lick Chris, thinking he's a sundae.
  • Mysterious Informant: Kermit the Frog.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Mayor West gives one to the Noid.
    Mayor West: Perhaps it was the Noid that should have avoided me.
  • The Stool Pigeon: Brian.
  • Visual Pun: After Brian sees Cleveland trashing his cab, Cleveland turns into a literal black panther (also a Shout-Out to the Michael Jackson "Black or White" music video that had Michael Jackson trash a car, then turn into a panther and run off into the night).
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Stewie throws up into a flower pot after getting kissed by Meg.
