After one of Lois' friends has a baby, she and Peter think about having another child themselves. When Stewie hears about this, he panics at the thought of losing his status in the family, and begins taking measures to ensure that Peter will never get Lois pregnant. He may be missing the bigger picture, however, as a similarly evil younger brother may be just the partner he needs. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Did You Know?


(3.11), when Stewie first talks to the computer inside his spaceship, the screen next to the wire-frame of Peter's body reads, "I have absolutely no idea what is supposed to be written in this space, so I'm making something up. I hope they like it. 2030" It is only visible in this shot. See more »


When the ship's warning system says that there are 10 seconds left until re-expansion, the display shows "10", but it is not counting down. See more »

A very well done episode.
5 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Family Guy still has it.

This is an episode that dominated the third season. It's about Peter and Lois deciding to have another baby that worries Stewie and he decides to do something about it.

The title is an obvious spoof of the movie Mission Impossible. And yeah the episode was indisputably hilarious.

Emmission Impossible is an utterly enjoyable episode, and I do not think family guy fans are disappointed with it.

Awesome episode.

FG is the best.
