Storyline

Needing more extracurriculars to get into college, Meg signs up as a reporter with the school newspaper. Through persistence and shrewd investigating she lands a scoop exposing Mayor Adam West's incompetence. Thinking her story is too boring, Peter writes his own article accusing Luke Perry of homosexuality and smuggles it into the news office. The next morning, Meg's story is the talk of the school, but a certain Mr. Perry isn't too happy. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

When Brian is showing Stewie around Brown, Stewie tries to get some Sodium Pentothal. Sodium Pentothal is a depressant drug that is sometimes used in interrogations to make the people they're interrogating respond to questioning better, a "truth serum." As Stewie loves giving interrogations, that would certainly fit his needs! See more »

Goofs

The Dean, reading off the transcript, states that Meg's name has only three letters. Peter and Lois go along with this observation. However "Meg" is only her nickname. As already established in previous episodes, (including one that showed a copy of her birth certificate)"Megan" is her actual name and would also be the name listed on her transcript. See more »

The One Where Peter's Fake Story...
6 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's so funny. It's so much fun when they include real people into fictional shows.

In this episode, Meg wants to be a reporter with her high school's newspaper, so she gets a story about Mayor Adam West's corruption. Peter thinks the story is boring, and will never get her a spot on the team, so he writes a new story, and swaps it with Meg's. The story is about Luke Perry being gay, and when she finds out what Peter did, after everyone congratulates her, she is furious. Peter decides that no one can be mad at him if Luke Perry really is gay. So he tries to seduce him to get proof.

Best part of the episode: When Peter tries to seduce Luke Perry.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
