Did You Know?


A scene was filmed (but never featured in any airing) in which the family meets up with Paul Tibbets at the air show, the famed pilot that dropped the atomic bomb on Japan. After making him feel bad about his actions, he kills himself. Contrary to popular belief this scene was NOT cut because of Tibbets' death in real life, the episode originally aired over a year before he died. See more »


The Darth Vader cutaway gag implies that it is Vader who wanted to build the Death Star. This is very inaccurate, the Death Star was the brainchild of other Imperials, and Vader actually looked down upon it and had doubts in it. See more »

But no matter how you come to judge Charles Wheeler and his partners, in ethical, moral, and in human terms, the fact of the matter is, when they fired Andrew Beckett because he had AIDS, they broke the law.

The One Where Tom Tucker Becomes Peter's Father Figure...
25 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. I think it was so funny to see Peter acting like a child. To tell you the truth, it's one of my most lovable moments of the series. Peter is my favorite character and I love when he acts like a little boy.

In this episode, Peter's Mother starts dating Tom Tucker. Tom becomes a father figure for Peter, Peter not warming up to him, at first. Eventually, he loves having a new Daddy, one that actually treats him like a person, instead of the cold Father Peter did have. Peter acts like a child would, with a new parent in the picture, not acting as an adult would. Meanwhile, Brian and Stewie get their own radio show and they use way too many buttons with catchphrases on them.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
