- Broken Base: Was Quagmire's speech about how awful Brian is well-deserved (considering Brian's character change and the audience reaction to it) or is Quagmire being a hypocrite (since Quagmire isn't any better when it comes to women, especially since his losing Cheryl Tiegs was entirely his fault and the early episodes show that he hit on Lois more than Brian did) and the writers were just scrambling for a reason why Quagmire would hate Brian and decided to tap into the audience hatred as a cheap way to tell viewers that they hate how Brian turned out?
- Heartwarming Moments: Peter learning his lesson and apologizing to Jerome, surprisingly with no joke in between (although there was Jerome admitting that he had sex with Meg and Peter not reacting with fatherly concern afterward).
- Stewie letting Brian sleep in his room after his disastrous dinner with Quagmire.
- Just Here for Godzilla: Despite introducing Jerome as a recurring character, many people see this (and remember it) only for Quagmire's rant against Brian.
- Signature Scene: Quagmire's "The Reason You Suck" Speech on Brian is one of the best-remembered scenes of the series.
