Storyline

After getting pulled over for drunk driving, Brian is sentenced to do volunteer work caring for a cranky, reclusive old woman. Peter, meanwhile, has grown a full beard, only to have a rare breed of swallow lay its eggs inside it. As Peter grows more fond of the baby birds living under his nose, Brian discovers that his elderly charge has a far more interesting past than he ever suspected.

Trivia

Although first aired in January 2002, the episode was completed prior to September 11, 2001. As Brian sings "You've Got A Lot To See" to a woman who has not left her house since 1960, they both see images of buildings constructed in the following years, including a lingering shot of the World Trade Center twin towers.

Goofs

At the dinner table we see everybody having steak with mashed potatoes. But when Chris starts talking, he and Stewie are having roast chicken. On the next cut there is a steak on Brian's plate. When it is back to Stewie, he is having a steak as well, instead of the roast chicken from the previous shot. See more »

Is this the greatest episode of "Family Guy" ever?
23 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With two stories, both worthy of being their own episodes, "Family Guy" dives into a more sophisticated brand of adult humour. Although not the funniest episode I can recall, it really shows other adult cartoons like the simpsons and "King of the Hill" that there's a new kid on the block, and he's good.

If there was an award for the most sentimental moment in television cartoon history, the end of this episode should, in my opinion, win hand's down. With a Primetime Emmy winning song, "You've Got A Lot To See," and acclaim from some tough critics it's apparent that, as television shows go, this is the best of the best.
