A joke about John Ritter's role in 8 Simple Rules (2002) was deleted from this episode because the writers found one of their own jokes too distasteful to broadcast, due to his death. It was replaced with a joke about George Lopez. See more »

[first lines]
Peter Griffin: Everybody, I got bad news. We've been canceled.
Lois Griffin: Oh, no, Peter, how could they do that?
Peter Griffin: Well, unfortunately, Lois, there's just no more room on the schedule. We've just got to accept the fact that Fox has to make room for terrific shows like "Dark Angel," "Titus," "Undeclared," "Action," "That 80's Show," "Wonderfalls," "Fastlane," "Andy Richter Controls the Universe," "Skin," "Girls Club," "Cracking Up," "The Pits," "Firefly," "Get Real," "Freaky Links," "Wanda at Large," "Costello...

This episode has to be one of the funniest Family Guy episodes ever!!! Starting off with all of the fail shows (i think), then the bed bath and beyond part, The comic book part, Peter being Mel Gibson, Viewing Passion of the Christ 2: crucify this, Brial and Stuie as the parents, Mel Gibsons house on top of Mt Rushmore and so much more, the hooker in the hotel room, the car chase through the mall, the guy with the upside down face, M G getting his gun out of the safe, Brian crawling on the guys carpet. Also this episode was a great opening for season 4, because it showed that they have not lost their touch to make us laugh over 3 other seasons!!
