The One Where Stan And Roger Trade Places...
19 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Newspaper Headline: "Britney Spears' Baby To Enter Pre-Hab". I love this episode. Which is what I say about most reviews I do, but seriously, I love this episode. It is so funny. Basically what happens in this episode is, that Roger wakes up, bored with his life, but he has accidentally broken his TV so he has no entertainment. He desperately wants a new TV but Stan refuses to buy him one. Roger drives Stan to a TV store but he still says no, so Roger, stupidly, I might add, crashes the car. Since Roger is an alien and can't be seen driving, let alone crashing a car, Stan takes the heat and is no longer allowed to drive. When they return home, Stan and Roger have a screaming match saying that they wish they could trade places. This isn't a "Freaky Friday" moment where they switch bodies, but they do decide to actually trade places. Stan will lounge around getting drunk and not helping anyone and Roger will go get a job and support the family. Since Roger is so good with his job, he becomes the family hit and Stan gets jealous. Eventually, Roger accidentally gives Francine a black eye, and someone assumes it was a drunk Stan, who goes to prison. But since Roger can't handle the responsibilities of man of the house anymore, he goes to Stan. Stan eventually gets out and becomes man of the house again. There are a lot of funny quotes from this episode. Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10.
