Storyline

Lois starts finding herself compelled to steal things from stores, getting an almost sexual rush from breaking the law. She eventually gets caught, however, and is sent to prison. Unable to cope without her, the family decides to break her out of jail. On the run from the law, they try to make a new life for themselves while hiding out in Asiantown.

Joe Swanson: Mayor West, we have every available man looking for the Griffins, we just don't have any leads.
Adam West: Not the Griffins, you moron! The rest of my Lite Brite pieces! My name isn't "Adam We"... or is it? Who am I? What number did you call? Don't ever call here again.
[he hangs up the phone]
Adam West: I guess I told him! Nobody messes with Adam We!
