Recap / Family Guy S 7 E 7 Oceans Three And A Half

Go To

After 6 1/2 seasons note , Bonnie finally gives birth to her and Joe's second child—a baby girl they name Susie. The bad news is that the medical bill totals to $20,000, which is far more than Joe and his family can afford on a policeman's salary. While Joe works at a second job at The Drunken Clam, Peter talks him into borrowing from a loan shark, which puts Joe in debt. After a few attempts at earning enough money to pay down Joe's debt, Peter asks Carter to help Joe out, then plans a heist at Pewterschmidt Mansion after Carter refuses.


Meanwhile, Stewie falls in love with Susie and plans on writing a romantic song for her, but Brian keeps harping on his creativity.

  • At Arm's Length: Carter does this to Bill Gates after taunting him.
  • Bowdlerization: The original airing had Peter say that Carter treats him worse than Christian Bale, followed by a cutaway featuring a tape player of Bale's infamous Terminator Salvation on-set rant and Peter reacting to it. All subsequent airings change it to Quagmire planning a movie with B-list actors such as Jeff Bridges and Laura Linney.
    • The uncut airings have a jab at Kobe Bryant with a commercial for condoms.
  • The Caper
  • Heist Episode
  • Hidden Depths: Cleveland can do spot-on impressions of people he knows, which is useful for getting into the Pewterschmidts' vault.
  • Long List: Brian manages to list over thirty songs named after women when mocking Stewie's attempt to write a song about Susie.
  • Nothing Is the Same Anymore: Bonnie has finally given birth to a baby girl named Susie after seven years.
  • Plot Tailored to the Party: Peter, Cleveland, and Quagmire, all play a part in clearing the security checks protecting the Pewterschmidts' vault: Cleveland pulls off a perfect vocal impersonation of Carter, Peter is able to successfully guess what is believed to be the worst male name in the English language note , and Quagmire is somehow able to clear the vault's penile identification scanner by sticking his penis inside it and breaking it.

  • Random Events Plot: Stewie's music video is a hodgepodge of nonsense and references to other videos.
    Brian: I'm not really following the story here.
    Stewie: Shut up!
  • Shout-Out: Stewie's music video for Susie is set to Bryan Adams' "Everything I Do". The video itself has homages such as U2's "New Year's Day" and The Police's "Wrapped Around Your Finger".
  • Take That!: Peter attempts to put Bonnie in labor by having her watch Two and a Half Men, which was filmed in front of a live ostrich.
  • You Say Tomato: The bakery Swedes in one cutaway.
