Family Guy: I Take Thee, Quagmire

Family GuyFinally: an entire Family Guy episode revolving around Lois' breasts! Well, OK, maybe not an entire episode - I do remember something about Quagmire proposing to someone on a beach - but this episode had one of the more hysterical/disturbing images of this TV season: Lois flashing her breasts to Brian after giving Stewie his lunch. I don't know, I just find a naked talking dog being mesmerized by breasts pretty damn funny.The Family Guy is the place to go to today for funny pop culture and other references (sorry Simpsons, but it's true). The opening had Peter on Wheel Of Fortune ("Thanks, Regis!"). I haven't watched Wheel Of Fortune in a few years. Do they still have the winners go shopping for prizes at the end? I thought they just won one big prize in an envelope or something?

Stewie has to get off the mom milk (at the park he knocks another baby out of the mother's arms and tries to get some nourishment, and he tries to lick it off the carpet after he spills some - there's an alcoholic parallel here), and Quagmire has the family over to meet his fiancee. Since I just watched The West Wing, it's appropriate that  there was an Alan Alda reference here ("Quagmire's gone all soft and Alan Alda on us!") At the wedding, the two plots collide. Lois' breasts start to grow and grow because she's no longer feeding Stewie (side note: this is the weirdest review I've ever written), and Quagmire reverts to his old self. Of course, it probably helped that Peter drenched the breasts with champagne and then shook Lois. But how can Quagmire divorce a woman who turns out to be crazy and suicidal?

So many funny quotes, but my favorite is from Death, showing up at Quagmire's "funeral:" "Sorry I'm late, I was over at NBC about Joey."

With the Adam West / Jeopardy scene, how many people know this is based on an episode of "The New Adventures of Superman", episode "The Imp-Practical Joker" first airing in 1966?

Mxyzptlk arrives on Earth from the fifth dimension and uses his magic to create chaos at an amusement park. Superman rescues the people in danger and meets Mr. Mxyzptlk who tells him that the only way to get rid of him is to make him say his name backwards. Since Mr. Mxyzptlk doesn't want to leave, Superman has to trick him. Eventually he succeeds and the troublesome imp is sent back to his home dimension."

Kebert Xela!!

Having him say his name backwards is the only way to send him back to the fifth dimension.

I fell off the couch laughing at that scene. Just the way Adam West deadpans everything he says on the show is freaking sweet!

Thank you, Seth MacFarlane, for the classic Great Space Coaster reference. This show never gets old!

Wheel of Fortune hasn't done the shopping in years, but it was still a hilarious parody...of course, I'm sure anyone under 15 is going to be like "huh"?

All in all I was impressed by the episode. It was one of the better Family Guy eps. since they came back (it's been up and down for them)

My lucky stars. Finally, a "Better Off Dead" reference. I haven't laughed that hard since the startlingly good "Take On Me" parody.
