Recap: Family Guy S 8 E 2 Family Goy
Airdate: October 4, 2009

When Lois thinks she has a lump on her breast, she goes to Dr. Hartman to see if it's breast cancer. It turns out she doesn't, but when Hartman looks through her family records, he shows Lois that her mother was a Holocaust survivor, revealing that she is Jewish. A visit to her parents conforms this, as Barbara reveals she hid her faith so Carter can get into the country club. While Lois and the kids start adapting to Jewish life, Peter embraces his newfound faith. That night, Peter recieves a ghostly visit from his late step-father Francis, who tells him that he'll go to Hell if he doesn't follow the Catholic faith. This turns Peter into an anti-Semite and Lois, not wanting to give into intimidation like her mother did, decides to fully embrace her Jewish side and have a Passover Seder, much to Peter's chagrin. During an argument between the two at the Seder, Jesus Christ shows up to tell Peter that Judaism and Catholicism are very similar to each other. Peter and Lois admit their reasons for their boorish behavior and apologize to each other. When Peter asks Jesus what religion they should follow, he says they're all crap (or "horseshit," if you're watching the DVD version), which atheist Brian replies "Thank you!".
