Airdate: March 21, 2010

"PeterAssment." contains examples of (YMMV Goes Here)

  • Ax-Crazy: Angela.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: Stewie's stage fright culminates in him breaking into tears and wetting himself.
  • Driven to Suicide: Angela tries killing herself by locking herself in her garage and leaving her car's motor on.
  • Halfway Plot Switch: The rest of the episode focuses more on Peter's sexual harassment, instead of Stewie trying to getting over his stage fright.
  • Hypocrite: Quagmire tells Peter, a married heterosexual man, that refusing Angela will mark him as gay, yet he himself refuses Angela after seeing her. When Peter finally goes through with the deed, he then criticizes Peter for cheating on Lois.
  • Imagine Spot: Angela imagines Peter without glasses swimming naked with a dolphin.
  • Pity Sex: It's pretty much what happens to Angela in the end. Peter feels bad for her because she feels "lonely" for not being with someone for years. As you can imagine, no one is thrilled with this trope after Angela spent half the episode sexually harassing Peter and even tried to rape him.
  • Playing a Tree: At the play in the beginning, Stewie plays the apparently coveted role of the plug.
  • Too Soon and We're Still Relevant, Dammit!: In-Universe. Chris and Brian wonder if doing a play on the Terri Schiavo case is too soon or too late.
