YMMV: Family Guy S 10 E 2 Seahorse Seashell Party

  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Meg finally sticking up for herself and calling Peter, Lois, and Chris out for treating her like crap. Sadly, this doesn't last, but Brian calling her brave for putting up with Lois', Peter's, and Chris' crap all the time makes it slightly better.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: See Unfortunate Implications below.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Brian's drug trip.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Meg decides to take the brunt of the family's abuse to prevent the family from collapsing. While it was meant to retain the status quo, many have taken this to mean "Stay in an abusive relationship for the benefit of the abuser". Not helped any further by the fact that the episode that comes after this one is "Screams of Silence: The Brenda Q. Story" — you know, the one that all but explicitly states that being in an abusive relationship is bad for everyone involved. In fact, it more or less makes Family Guy look very hypocritical.
