The One Where Roger Is Dead, But Not Dead…
26 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Newspaper Headline: Economy Turns Corner, Falls Down Stairs. A great episode. Not a particular favorite, but am always happy to watch it. After Roger slips into a coma, because of being excoriated by Stan, The Smiths think he dead and then dispose of his body. Whilst the family deals with the loss of their beloved alien, Francine suddenly decides she is an atheist, and Steve disowns his father, Stan. Whilst all of this is happening, Roger wakes up in a landfill, realizing he had gone into stress-induced hibernation and makes the journey home. He decides the travel home as an old lady. And when he goes on a bud he meets an elderly lady who thinks Roger is her best friend. Eventually Roger gets home to his family, and Francine asks him how Heaven was. Since Roger has no idea what Francine is talking about, Haley explains and Roger fakes an entire story. At the end Francine believes in God once again, and thinks he works in mysterious way. A funny episode, overall 7 out of 10.
