Quotes

Peter Griffin: [Peter and Brian are inside a slaughterhouse] My God! What is this?
Brian Griffin: This must be the McBurgertown slaughterhouse.
The Cow: Sir, you are correct. But in here, we call it DaCow.
Peter Griffin: DaCow?
The Cow: DaCow. Except we spell the chau part C-O-W, like cow. So it's kind of, uh... eh, sort of a dark joke.
Brian Griffin: Yeah, yeah, it's a Holocaust joke. That's, that's really funny.

Jumped the shark or writer's strike?
7 February 2008 | by (Framingham, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This episode is not funny. I don't care if it is offensive; that almost made it funny. It's just... not funny. I've watched it three times and even the parts I know are funny just aren't making me laugh. It seems like the show has degraded into Scary Movie syndrome where one joke is taken into a room and beat to death in front of you. Yeah, it was funny at first, then they show it to you for the next minute fifty seconds and you want to kill yourself.

Even a guest appearance by Khan himself was TOTALLY WASTED. He made exactly one joke, or at least one joke was remotely clever (my... beloved wife) and even that was hammered into the ground. The episode just spirals into a flatspin of crap at this point and the writers must have known they'd failed by this point. All of Montalban's dialogue is just FILLER. He doesn't say anything remotely interesting or memorable. Then, just to celebrate their failure, the writers make Montalban do a speech that isn't a speech, just filler material in front of a crowd! AMAZING.

Easily my least favorite episode of Family Guy. Beyond terrible.
