148. - And Then There Were Fewer

  • When Brian is afraid of getting sent to the kennel, Stewie tells him that he always stinks when the family comes to pick him up.
  • When the Griffins arrive at the mansion and discovering Joe and Bonnie were invited too:
    Joe: Well, I got this invitation that said they were having a dinner in my honor. I assume it was for all those arrests I made last month.
    Peter: Eh, that's weird. My invitation said it would be in my honor. I assume it was for being able to fart the alphabet, which I was able to do 'til I pooped on the "s". Ah well, everybody on the bus was upset long before that anyway.
  • When James Woods returns, having been absent during the first murder:
    James Woods: Sorry I took so long, I was going to the bathroom and I just couldn't stop looking at my penis because it's, you know, so fantastic.

    "Go Go Gadget Skis!"
  • Patrick Stewart's voice cameo.

149. - Excellence in Broadcasting

  • Rush Limbaugh's surprising, totally out of left-field (har har) guest shot should prove once and for all that Rush has a great sense of humor about himself. Yes, that's really him.
    Rush: What if I hid a piece of baloney in the book—and I don't tell you which page? Would you read it then, Brian? Would you read it to find the baloney?
  • When Brian moves in with Rush, he replaces several of Rush's belongings with new ones made in America. All of them break down or malfunction except for his new cat, which moos.

150. - Welcome Back, Carter

  • Limo jousting.
  • Carter addressing the people of France.
  • After Babs leaves Carter, Peter tries to help him pick up women at a bar. He blows it when he sees a black guy and mistakes him for a slave. The three girls he was talking to are then shown squeezing their faces together and spontaneously fusing into one fat girl.
    And that's where fat girls come from.
  • To help Carter get Babs back, Peter suggests they reenact the romantic comedy plot of an ex-wife returning to her husband after he befriends a little kid. He hires Jonathan Lipnicki to be the kid, not knowing that he's long since become an adult, and Peter is horrified upon seeing him as a homely-looking man with a comically wide mouth.
  • Babs's ex-boyfriend "Rodginald".
    Carter: Get away from my wife, you rascal!
    Rodginald: Such language in the presence of a lady! If it's a row you want, I will cleave you in twixt!
    Peter: Hang on Carter, I think I know how to take this guy down. (to Rodginald) Penis.
    Rodginald: Aaaaaaaah! [faints]
  • The sheer Mood Whiplash when Carter apologizes to Babs:
    Carter: Babs, I need you. Cheating on you was the worst mistake of my life. I kneel before you a frightened soul and a broken man. A man who has nothing without you. Give me one more chance, and I pledge to place above you nothing, not even myself. For all my time here, and for time forever.
    Babs: Carter, what you did was unforgivable. And as beautiful as your words are, I... I just don't know that they can fix what's done.
    Carter: I know I can't do it overnight, but we can still have a lot of years together. Please, just let me try.
    Babs: Carter, you had sex with that woman. So, no, I can't trust you. But at my age, I'm certainly not going to remarry either. So, if you'd like to move back in and take things slowly, one step at a time, I suppose I can give you the chance to earn my trust again.
    Carter: That sounds like a lot of work. Go to hell!

151. - Halloween on Spooner Street

  • When he sees the other kids in costumes and thinks they're real, Stewie pleads a kid offscreen dressed as Superman for help. He then starts shooting at them with a rifle and tells Brian that they're under attack from zombies, vampires, and a Mexican princess.
  • The first house Stewie and Brian go to is Mayor West's. Instead of candy, he gives kids Cornish game hens and fills Stewie's bag with gravy.
  • The cutaway of Peter getting lost in the supermarket.
  • After the bullies that steal Stewie's candy spray-paint Brian pink, he meets The Pink Panther.
    Pink Panther: First day being pink?
    Brian: Yeah.
    Pink Panther: Welcome to Hell. (musical flourish plays)
  • Chris (dressed as Optimus Prime) and Meg (dressed as a cat) freaking out after finding that they were making out with each other in a closet at a party.
  • Quagmire's reason for suddenly going kamikaze.
    Quagmire: That was for making me have sex with Joe, you sons of bitches!
    Peter: You guys actually had sex?!
    Joe: Yeah, I kinda went rogue with that one.
  • The Bland Name Products in Stewie's Halloween candy.
    Stewie: Brian, you took me out on my first Halloween tonight, and you showed me an exciting time. And for that, I'm going to let you pick out some candy from my bag.
    Brian: Oh, thanks.
    Stewie: And keep in mind we can't use any brand names, due to advertising concerns.
    Brian: Right, okay, I'll have a Mr. Wiffle bar, a Kooky Nut Pop, some Gyminyms, uh a Zip-Zap, a Choco-Buddy, uh, a $64000 Bar, a Not-A-Finger, and a Dawkin's Peanut Butter Disk.
    Stewie: God, I hate television.

152. - Baby, You Knock Me Out

  • Peter: I need that money for bourbon and anime!
    Peter during cutaway: I don't understand any of this. Everyone in Japan is either a ten-year-old girl or a monster!

153. - Brian Writes a Bestseller

154. - Road to the North Pole

  • Brian and Stewie failing their first Christmas delivery as Santa Claus is an entire series of Crowning Moments Of Funny. Their effort goes From Bad to Worse, and more and more hilarious, with every incident. Brian and Stewie have to break into the house, fight over how to distribute the presents, beat a little girl's parents to death in front of her and tie her up. The final realization is one of the funniest scenes in the entire show:
    Stewie: Oh my god, we're in the wrong house!
  • Stewie's lamentation when the Mall Santa left for the night...
    Stewie: That son of a bitch, he just turned his back on me! The way reality turned its back on Gary Busey!
    (Gilligan Cut to Gary Busey in his bathroom, looking at the mirror)
    Gary's "Reflection," a Monster Clown: (flashing double thumbs-up) YOU'RE DOIN' GREAT!
    Gary Busey: (also flashing double thumbs-up) GOOD! THEN I'LL KEEP IT UP!
  • This.
    Winnie the Pooh: Come on, Eeyore, let's go play!
    Eeyore: I don't wanna.
    Pooh: Why are you always so down?
    Eeyore: I have a nail in my anus.
    Pooh: Oh.
  • The over-the-top multi-car crash Stewie causes with the signal flare. Goes on for what seems like a full minute, ending with Brian swerving to avoid running into Stewie (who's standing in the street calmly brushing himself off), crashing into a snowbank, and taking an airbag to the face. When he asks Stewie what happened Stewie just mumbles in a bored voice "Eh, just some... stupid stuff went down..."

155. - New Kidney in Town

156. - And I'm Joyce Kinney

157. - Friends of Peter G.

  • The Overly Long Gag of Peter and Brian watching The Sound of Music with several misleading company credits that look like the beginning of a movie, coming to a head when a guy who's been shot in the arm runs through the rain into a cabin and it turns out to be a credit for "Panting Man's Wounded Shoulder Films".
  • Brian states that people got along just fine for thousands of years without AA, just like they got along for thousands of years without religion. Cut to three men in biblical times reacting to the news of Jesus's birth:
    Man 1: I like you and have no reason not to.
    Man 2: I like you and have no reason not to.
    Man 3: Hey, did you hear about that magic baby that was born in Bethlehem?
    [they all suddenly stab each other to death]
  • When Peter is driving drunk, he decides to put on a lullaby station and crashes into a tree. Death shows up and hopes that the driver was Rosie O'Donnell.
  • When Death shows Peter a potential future where Peter is now a mean drunk who gives his family cigar burns, Stewie pretends to be his third son to get another one. Peter pushes him away and references the Mondegreen from the intro in the early seasons:
    Drunk Future Peter: Stewie, go on, get out of here, you stupid "laugh and cry", "effin' cry", what's the difference?
  • The ending where Peter decides that he'll only drink half of every six-pack he buys from now on and two seagulls at the dump are shown drunk on the beers that he threw out. They talk about how their feces is white even though they don't eat white things and one of them says that there's always something good leftover in KFC buckets, then freaks out when the other tells him that he's been eating bird meat.

158. - German Guy

  • Apparently, Chris amused himself by putting his bedsheet in the washing machine with so much starch that it turned into a glass-like rectangular board that shatters when Lois drops it. Lois adds that she thinks the washing machine is pregnant; Peter, who is equally confused, says "life finds a way".
    • After his sheet shatters, Chris's clothes follow suit when Peter pats him on the back. Seeing Chris naked, Peter simply says "Yuck."
  • Peter tries to get Chris into philateling (stamp collecting), but the former quickly becomes so bored that he shoots himself in the head offscreen.
  • Herbert's recollection of serving in the Air Force in World War II:
    • During a bombing raid, his squadron encountered the Luftwaffe, who retreated because they thought the shark face on the front of Herbert's plane was real.
      German pilot 1: Ah! A shark!
      German pilot 2: How did it get all the way up here in the sky?!
      German pilot 1: Who cares, you fool, do you want to get eaten?! Retreat!
    • When Franz, who isn't fooled by Herbert's facade, shoots him down, Herbert is taken to a concentration camp when he's Mistaken for Gay by the Nazis who found his wallet full of pictures of little boys. At said concentration camp, Franz makes him sort the recyclables, but some of the soda bottles would still have a little bit left and get on his hands, making them sticky. He treats this as a traumatic incident.
    • When questioning the validity of his story, Peter asks if Herbert is Jamie Kennedy and if he's being "skunked, or puked, or whatever some shit". Herbert swears that it's true on his nephew's grave.
  • When Chris learns the truth about Franz and the latter has Peter at gunpoint, Peter distracts him and swats his gun out of his hand, which Chris grabs and prepares to use on Franz. However, Chris gets confused and suddenly thinks Franz is Peter's Evil Twin, so he asks them what's his birthday. Franz gives the correct answer, causing Chris to shoot Peter and hug Franz, who takes the gun back.
    Peter: You idiot!
    Chris: Well, learn my birthday, asshole!
  • The Black Comedy Burst of Quagmire's white noise machine playing the sound of a woman screaming for help, most likely being sexually assaulted.
  • Peter tells Herbert that if he sees Meg to say "Thunder Thighs are on the move, Thunder Thighs are loose." Peter assumes Herbert will forget, but in the end it turns out he remembered.
  • The whole fight between Herbert and Franz, which is two old men moving very slowly set to dramatic music. At one point Franz falls asleep, then they sit down on the couch to take their medications and Franz needs Herbert to call the former's nurse to help him get up, while the music keeps playing throughout.

159. - The Hand That Rocks the Wheelchair

  • Peter replacing Meg in a cutaway while wearing her clothes.

    Broster: Hey, Peter, wanna see my paginis?
    Peter: I, uh, I...I don't know.
  • Robert Loggia screaming "NOT OKAY!" after an AIDS joke. HUGE Big-Lipped Alligator Moment.
    • The AIDS joke itself was much more clever then one would have expected from a show like this:
      Mayor West: Oh, by the way, I should tell you I've got aids.
      Carol: What!?
      Mayor West: Yeah, they're right over there waiting for me!
      Aid: Ready to go when you are, sir!
      Mayor West: Poor guys, they both have AIDS.

163. - The Big Bang Theory

  • Stewie breaking the fourth wall by saying that a brightly-colored ad for The Cleveland Show can still appear out of nowhere.
  • After Stewie finds out that Leonardo da Vinci is his ancestor, Brian points out that it also means that Stewie has Italian heritage.
    Stewie: Of course! My love for Spaghetti-Os and smoking on the toilet! It all makes sense!
    Brian: Ew.

164. - Foreign Affairs

  • Peter riding a scooter naked while teaching
  • Three words: Muppet-style sightseeing.
  • Pre-wheelchair Joe replacing Stan in the original American Dad! intro. Following the Couch Gag of Stan's newspaper having a different headline in most episodes, here it reads "Newspaper Gag Fails to Live Up to Expectations".
  • Calling the music video for David Bowie and Mick Jagger's "Dancing In the Street" gay, then playing the entirety of it. It catches a lot of flack for being pointless, but it definitely turns the video into total Narm.
  • According to François, Paris has a problem with mime-on-mime violence. This is followed by a completely silent cutaway of one mime mugging another with a Finger Gun, then killing him and blowing his head to pieces.

165. - It's A Trap!

  • In the opening bit, they sound annoyed and resigned as the power goes out, instead of the surprised reactions from the previous two.
    Chris: Oh no!
    Meg: Not again!
    Stewie: We're about to do Jedi, aren't we?
    Peter: (sighs) Let's just get through this.
    • And this extends into the opening crawl as well.
      Luke Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine in order to— okay, you know what, we don't care. We were thinking of not even doing this one. Fox made us do it. When we did "Blue Harvest", they said, "Oh, you guys are crazy." They tried to talk us out of it, and it ended up making a ton of money. By then we were just finishing "Empire", and we were absolutely exhausted. But Fox suddenly had dollar signs in their eyes, and they said, "Seth, if you don't do 'Jedi', we're not gonna let you leave to go direct your movie."
      I'm sorry. I took a muscle relaxer earlier and it's kicking in. I'm just so stressed because there's been a car parked in front of my house for three straight days and there's a pillow in the back seat. And I've never seen anyone get in or out of it, but it moves a couple of feet one way or the other each day. Wouldn't it be funny if it was a bunch of raccoons living in there, moving it? You know, with their little paws on the steering wheel? And then another one working the brake and the gas? And the steering wheel raccoon and the pedal raccoon have to talk back and forth to each other 'cause the brake pedal guy can't see the road? I'm gonna keep thinking that, 'cause I know really it's probably a car bum.
      Look, just do me a huge favor and lower your expectations, okay? Just this one time. I promise I'll make it up to you. I mean, "Star Wars", fine. "Empire"— still not bad. But on this one we ran out of gas. Seriously, we let the assistants write it. Hell, even the Fed Ex guy got a joke in, and he calls the baby "Steve." Anyway, here's "Return of the Jedi" starring Steve as Darth Vader.
  • The sequence where Brian is driving the AT-ST, then being attacked by a swarm of bees.

  • The future of Family Guy.

    Employee 1: First, you throw in the whole head of lettuce.
    Employee 2: Even the hard to eat white part at the bottom?
    Employee 1: That's what the people want! Now, what else?

176. - The Blind Side

177. - Livin' on a Prayer

  • Chris's sudden outburst toward Brian at the breakfast table:
    Brian: Well, that's what they [Christians] do. They believe that disease is just an illusion, and the only way to fight it is to make your faith stronger.
    Chris: Illusions? You wanna talk about illusions? If you die tomorrow, you think we're gonna be devastated, but you know what? We're just gonna go out and buy another dog. And maybe this dog will fetch a stick and bring me my slippers instead of prattling on about the pros and cons of various religions!
    Lois: Chris, I think you've had too much sugar cereal.
    Chris: I think I haven't had enough! [empties the cereal box into his bowl and shoves it in his face]
  • Seventh-Day Adventists:

    Woods: You're the same thing!

180. - Burning Down the Bayit

  • Mort is so in the red that he can't afford real music for his pharmacy and has to sing the songs himself. The camera then cuts to a speaker playing Mort singing Huey Lewis and the News' "If This Is It".
  • Mort's business was more successful when Muriel was still alive because customers would mentally undress her, then redress her when they saw "the horrible mess underneath", and in that interval, she'd rob them blind.
  • To make sure Lois doesn't notice his absence as he helps Mort burn down the pharmacy, Peter replaced himself at home with a camel wearing his clothes. As it turns out, Lois had a similar idea and replaced herself with a donkey wearing her clothes to go out clubbing with Bonnie.
  • While reading him his Miranda Rights, Joe tells Mort that he has a right to an attorney who is probably related to him, and indeed Mort's attorney looks and sounds exactly like him.
  • When Joe asks Peter if there's a chance he could befriend Chris, Peter tells him that he wouldn't try, as Joe frightens Chris because Chris thinks Joe's a Transformer that broke halfway through. Apparently, Joe gets that accusation a lot.

181. - Killer Queen

  • Stewie is afraid of the robot on the cover of Queen's "News of the World":
    Stewie: God, why does he look SAD?! He's already destroyed mankind, what else could he want?!

    • Before that, after being scared by a wall-sized image of the album cover:

182. - Forget-Me-Not

  • Stewie tells Brian that he's lying to himself about being Peter's friend, like those girls who insist their best friends are attractive. There's then a cutaway of a woman introducing Stewie to her best friend, who is holding her disembodied head in her arm like a dullahan.
    Stewie: Okay, okay, that was an extreme example, but face it, ladies, your best friends are not hot.

  • When it turns out that most of the episode took place in a Lotus-Eater Machine simulation, Stewie shows Brian that he tested the same scenario on Lois, Meg, and Bonnie. They started fighting as soon as they met each other and hadn't even tried to learn their names yet. Stewie even notes in dismay that it's literally only been three minutes since he started the scenario, compared to how long it took for the guys to devolve into fighting.

183. - You Can't Do That On Television, Peter
