Brian falls for an African-American teacher at Chris' high school, and tries to impress her by pushing to have the school renamed from James Woods High to Martin Luther King, Jr. High. Peter, not wanting to see the name changed, brings James Woods himself to speak at the school board meeting. Things go further than expected, however, when Woods takes Brian's place in the household as Peter's best friend and the family pet. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Michael Dorn and Marina Sirtis reprised their roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Commander William T. Riker, Lt. Worf and Counselor Deanna Troi respectively from Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), although Sirtis' scenes were cut. See more »


In the Star Trek: The Next Generation cutaway, when Captain Picard makes fun of Lt. Worf's forehead ridges, Data laughs along with the rest of the crew. But as seen on "TNG" (specifically the episode "Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Outrageous Okona", in which he tries to learn how to be funny), Data understands the basic concept of humor, but its practical application is one of humanity's idiosyncrasies that constantly eludes him.

this a very funny family guy episode where Brian try to get together with a girl and impress her by changing the school name to martin Luther king in stead of James wood. Peter of cores get envious of them. and takes James wood to the school.Peter and James become great friends as Peter and Brian are not talking to each other. but Peter soon out grows James as friend. and Shawna (Brians girl friend) starts making bad remarks about Peter. which Brian dose not like.....they stop going out.Now there is still the question of James. its REALLY FUNNY EPISODE WITH SOME GREAT SENCES IN IT SO I WOULD SAY IF YOU HAVE A CHANCE Watch IT ITS JUST GREAT BUT THEM AGAIN IS NOT ALL FAMILY GUY GREAT
