Did You Know?


This is the only time where Death is voiced by Norm MacDonald. In all subsequent appearances, Death is voiced by Adam Carolla. See more »


At the Hitler parody the number to call "213-DU WERDEST EINE KRANKENSCHWESTER BRAUCHEN!!!" is seen on the screen, also spoken by Hitler. This is a threat spoken in (wrong) German language translating roughly to "You will need a nurse!". Correct German would have been: "Du WIRST eine Krankenschwester brauchen!!!" See more »


Hitler: Today on Hitler we will talk to Hollywood hunk Christian Slater.
Hitler: So tell me. In your next film. We get to see your but.
Christian Slater: Well ugh? I guess you do.
Hitler: Can we see it right now?
Christian Slater: Um? sure I guess so.
Hitler: Oh Oh he's going to do it!
Hitler: If you are in the Los Angeles area and you want to get tickets to Hitler then call 213-Du Werdest Eine Krankenschwester Brauchen!

The One Where Peter Becomes Death...
30 March 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. I just love it. It's definitely one of my favorite episodes from Season 2, as well as the entire series. I've seen it so many times. Over and over.

In this episode, Peter tries to get out of an expensive hospital bill, so he writes on his sign- out form that he's dead. Death comes to collect him, only to find out that he's still alive. So, Death cases Peter and he twists his ankle. Because of this, Peter has to fill in as Death. He doesn't want to do it in the beginning, but by the end of the episode, he enjoys doing the job.

Fun Fact: This episode was meant for Season 1, but aired with Season 2, that is why Lacey Chabert voices Meg, instead of Mila Kunis.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
