Did You Know?


The character Vern (Peter's social worker) is based on the character Vern (played by Micheal D. Roberts) in Rain Man (1988). In this film, Vern is a supportive worker at Raymond's (Dustin Hoffman) asylum, and says the line "I'm your main man Raymond, I'm your main man." See more »


Peter mentions what happens to Alex Murphy in the opening scene of "Robocop". However, that scene wasn't the opening scene. See more »


Stewie Griffin: Chris, whatever happened to Geena Davis? She used to be in movies, but she's not in movies anymore. She's attractive enough but when she smiles you see too much gum. Not a good tooth-to-gum ratio... Chris? Ah, I'll tell you in the morning.

The One Where Peter Is Legally Declared Mentally Disabled...
26 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It is one of my all-time favorite Family Guy episodes. And not just from Season 4, overall.

In this episode, Peter wins a child's version of Trivial Pursuit and becomes very obnoxious and he becomes convinced that he's a genius. So he decides to get himself tested to prove it to his family. But when the results come back, they're something very unexpected. It turns out that Peter is legally mentally disabled. He actually calls past girlfriends to tell them, to make sure they get themselves tested. He thinks it's something you pass on to other people like STD's. Peter then starts taking advantage of his new-found disability, but then he realizes that his actions still have consequences.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
