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

In "The Story on Page One", the cover of the TV Guide featuring the likeness of 'Luke Perry' says in the bottom right corner, "If you can read this Family Guy is on the air". The gag reflects on the ever-uncertain airing of the show by Fox due to its content each week, and the writers in the second season often thought they would lose their jobs any day while in production.

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 »

Quotes

[Peter tries to get a gay photo of Luke Perry]
Peter Griffin: Oh, jeez, I spilled wine all over your shirt. You know what's good for getting stains out? Sex with another man.
