Best Family Guy Episode
7 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the best Family Guy episode ever! A real demonstration of DENIAL in human beings: Lois rejecting the idea the her newly discovered brother is insane versus Peter refusing to admit that he is fat. The top three scenes are: 1- The thrilling doctor's appointment 2- Brian trying to convince Peter that he should do something

about is weight or perhaps admit that he is fat:

*Peter: "What the hell is that?"

(with all sorts of objects floating around him)

*Brian: "Your body mass as created its own gravitational field!" 3- The half dead fat guy wondering if he could eat the dead fat guy.

Two thumbs way up!!!
