While on duty at the Mini-Mart, Chris asks Peter for some advice about his sexuality, but Peter - ignoring the fact that his son has asked him a question - decides that he is being sexually harassed and threatens to sue. The store owner responds by giving Peter a coupon redeemable for free gasoline for a year. Lois decides that the family should go on a vacation to Grand Canyon. As the Griffins are packing up to leave, a sleep-famished Stewie wanders from his car seat and goes into the house to sleep. Everyone fails to notice that Stewie is not in the car - he has been left home alone. As the other Griffins partake in road-trip activities - such as singing Bette Midler's "The Rose" and engaging with Glenn in a road rage incident - Stewie frolics around the house, doing whatever he pleases. When the Griffins arrive at the site of the 9/11 attacks in New York City, Lois finally sees that Stewie is not in the car and must have been left behind at home. Lois calls Quagmire and Cleveland ... Written by Brian Rathjen <>

The One Where Stewie Gets Left Alone...
30 March 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's hysterical. It's definitely one of my all-time favorite episodes.

In this episode, Peter goes to the Mini-Mart and Chris asks him a question about his genitals. When Chris exposes himself to Peter, Peter screams, threatens to sue and the manager gives him a free-gas-for-a-year gift card, to make it "go away". The Griffins decide to use the free fuel to take a trip to the Grand Canyon. Whilst getting in the car, Peter and Lois have a fight about him bringing his birds on the trip. Lois says no and Peter said he would not go without them. So Stewie climbs out of the car and goes inside. Lois lets Peter bring the birds and then they leave. Stewie is all alone, he needs to fend for himself. He wakes up demanding breakfast, but not finding anyone. When the family get to the New York City, to the 9/11 attack area, yes, Peter went the wrong way, Lois goes to wake Stewie and discovers that he's not there. She gets panicked and calls Quagmire and Cleveland to go take care of Stewie. But Stewie likes being on his own, so he chains them up in the basement. Eventually Stewie runs out of food and gets a job at McBurger Town, so he can earn some money. I don't know why anyone would give a baby a job, but it's a cartoon, so I try to over think it too much. When Lois doesn't hear from Cleveland or Quagmire, she insists that the family goes home. But then Peter wastes his money on useless items, he and Lois get into a huge fight. Eventually, they get home and find Stewie, safe and sound, but they still can't find Quagmire or Cleveland.

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