Did You Know?


In a spoof of a scene from _The Sound of Music (1965)_, Peter calls his children using a boatswain's pipe (or whistle or call; "boatswain" is pronounced, and sometimes spelled, "bo's'un"). The boatswain's pipe has been in use by navies around the world since at least since the 13th century. Its two tones (high-pitched and lower), sounded in sequence, can produce over a hundred signals.

When the kids are singing their goodnight song Stewie climbs up and rests his head on the landing, but in the next shot his head is resting on the 2nd step down from the landing. See more »


The Black Knight: [seemingly talking to Peter] Hey, what's your fat ass doing here?
Bruce the Performance Artist: [sitting on a large donkey] He's my only means of conveyance. But, I suppose I do spoil him.
The Black Knight: Clearly, you do.

An awfully dull and excruciating episode with pitiful gags
24 July 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is an awful episode that just barely raises a few laughs here and there, but is just loaded with recycled gags and ridiculous one liners and situations that are more so embarrassing than they are funny. After attending Chris's class parent day, Peter is laughed at for his job at the toy factory on the assembly line. Ashamed of himself, he sets out to get a promotion under Lois's encouragement by inviting the boss to dinner. It inevitably turns out to be a disaster, as the boss chokes to death on a roll. Peter then tries to flush him down the toilet but you know... it just doesn't work. After the funeral, the employees at the factory discover that their possible homosexual boss had made plans for the factory to be demolished with all them still inside it upon his death. Peter needs a new job, but after failing at everything he tries, he decides to achieve his lost dream of becoming a knight. And so, he enrolls in the Knight school.

Knight school turns out to be like some sort of military boot camp and the gags are all deliberately derived from "Full Metal Jacket" as the instructor yells at them calling them maggots and so forth. As bland as stale bread this one. Painful to watch and is pretty melodramatic.
