Recap / Family Guy S 17 E 19 Girl Internetted

Go To

When Meg suddenly becomes Internet famous, she and an excited Peter work together to build her following; Brian and Stewie revel in a new ride while Brian's car gets repaired.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Actor Allusion: For the Road House bit at the end, Sam Elliott joins in and reminds viewers he was in that movie.
  • Balloon Belly: In a brief Twitter photo of Meg advertising a painful brand of toilet paper, she has a swollen gut from all her binging.
    • That's not actually her belly, rather it's her hip, poked out while doing a signature "American Football" pose and holding the product like the titular ball.

  • Big Eater: Meg uses her talent for eating to get famous.
  • Growling Gut: After stuffing herself full of food, it seems that the raw bacon in particular aggravates Meg's stomach to the point that it starts gurgling and rumbling nonstop until she goes to the bathroom and relieves herself.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Patty, Ruth, and Ester point out their massive weight gain would be shocking if anyone remembered what they looked like.
  • Plotline Crossover: Sam Elliot occasionally does narration for Brian and Stewie's plot. After that plot ends, Meg makes a comment about not wanting anyone to lose their feet.
    Sam Elliot: Feet, those little weirdos on the end of your legs. I used mine to mosey on over to the A story.
  • Spot the Imposter: Between a Peter dressed as a chef and a Peter that's been encased in vanilla ice cream covered in chocolate à la Han Solo. Lois doesn't know who the imposter is, so the chef Peter points out he's clearly a guy and that the other is clearly ice cream. Lois immediately stabs the Peter encased in ice cream, but then the chef Peter starts melting and suggests lowering the temperature to 32 degrees.

  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: Due to Meg's voracious over-consuming (even downing an entire bottle of corn syrup at one point), she ends up having a heart attack and being diagnosed with Type II diabetes.

How well does it match the trope?
