The One Where Brian And Stewie Go On A Cross-Country Trip...
7 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. I love all of the Brian and Stewie traveling-adventure episodes. They're all pretty good. Especially when the time machine gets involved.

In this episode, Brian travels to California to pick up Stewie, who has been staying with family. But before they get on their flight, their tickets and money are stolen and they are left stranded. Brian stalls Lois by saying they'll get back by train. On their travels, they find the puppy mill where Brian was born, so he can make amens with his Mother.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
