Storyline

The Griffins visit a 50s-style diner, where the wait staff dress as celebrities from that decade. Peter hears his favorite song, "Surfin' Bird" by the Trashmen, on the jukebox and begins dancing and acting stupid. When one of the employees removes the record from the jukebox - the song came out in late 1963, nearly four years after the end of the 1950s decade - Peter buys the record, takes it home and plays it endlessly. He winds up driving everyone crazy with his obsessive fixation on the song; Chris is driven to the brink, while Lois is appalled when she gets a call from the bank stating that Peter had withdrawn most of their savings account (to produce an insipid public service announcement built around "Surfin' Bird"). Eventually, Brian and Stewie decide they need to take action and, in the middle of the night, team up to steal the record. The next morning, Peter realizes the record is missing and sets out to buy another copy, only to find that "a dog and a baby" have already ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Been better, Guy
16 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Love Blactually was pretty funny, but this one was a stinker. I for one think we need more Brian, and more Stewie. The Surfin' Bird shtick was lame, at best. And FG REALLY needs to take a breather on the Jesus. Like, no Jesus for the whole season, seriously. It's overdone. The Jesus-Peter dynamic felt tired, a Jesus-Brian thing or even Jesus-Stewie would be far more interesting. Heck you did better in American Dad's "Tears of a Clooney" with Stan-Clooney. Let's have more current stuff like the election(SARAH PALIN), America's image in the world, reality shows like the hills, ya know...new stuff. I liked the Office Space style destruction but it was overlong, and again, it's been done guys.
