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song; Chris is driven to the brink, while Lois is appalled when she gets a call from the bank stating that Peter had withdrawn most of their savings account (to produce an insipid public service announcement built around "Surfin' Bird").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.

... is the word...
6 October 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

My brothers and I watched this episode last night and kept on laughing. I was wondering where "bird is the word" joke was heading and it paid off. We were laughing more often than not. The only joke I thought that was off was the "deal" Peter struck with the dude from the 50's diner for the LP. Apart from that it was pretty cool episode. Stewie was underused (again) but what gets us every time are the one-liners that are thrown in (a dog and a baby bought all 48 copies) and how they reference old throw-backs (Peter doing a detective rant to the family about the record).

Get episode, best one of this season so far...
