Recap: Family Guy S 4 E 5 The Cleveland Loretta Quagmire
Airdate: June 12, 2005

Outr story begins during a friendly outing on Peter's fishing boat, where Quagmire catches a fish that lands in Loretta's shirt. She invites him to reach for it, and after a moment's hesitation, he does. During a game of charades, Joe falls overboard and the boat's crew revives him with CPR. Since nobody knew what to do when Joe was in danger, Lois insists that the family take a CPR class. After Peter receives a card and almost instantly gets it revoked for unnecessarily performing CPR on two men. While walking down the street, Peter and Brian hear Loretta screaming and assume she's in trouble, but when they burst in, they discover her having sex with another man, who turns out to be Quagmire (though they don't know it yet).

They tell the family and friends and Peter volunteers to tell Cleveland of the affair. After Peter tells him the affair on great detail, Cleveland is hurt, but calm, and confronts Loretta about the affair. She tells him that he is a boring husband and chastises him for apologizing to her about the fair, kicking him out of the house. Feeling responsible, Peter invites Cleveland to stay at his house. Lois gets worried that Cleveland doesn't seem to be affected by the whole thing at all, even when Peter and Brian discover it was Quagmire had sex with Loretta. Peter tries various methods to get Cleveland to express his emotions, but it works too well when Peter in a Quagmire mask pretends to sleep with Brian in a Loretta mask, ending with an enraged Cleveland vowing to kill Quagmire.

Peter tries to protect Quagmire by hiding him in Mayor West's house, but his erratic behavior is too much for Quagmire and he goes back to his house, hoping a small talk with Cleveland will straighten things out. Cleveland then bursts into Quagmire's home wielding a baseball bat and chases him through the house. When he has Quagmire cornered on the front lawn, Cleveland decides that he can't kill another living being, no matter how much it hurt him. Peter than puts Cleveland and Loretta together and after an angry argument, they agree to get a divorce. The episode ends with Cleveland and Quagmire getting rid of some leftover stress by boxing each other a la Rocky III.
