Francine Smith: I know. I used to cook everything in oil containing trans fat, but since the new law, you can't get it anymore.
Stan Smith: That's what trans fat is? The stuff that makes everything taste wonderful? Oh, why doesn't the city council just declare a war on flavor? Like the English did years ago!
Steve Smith: Their food is atrocious.
Francine Smith: I miss Lady Di.

The One Where Trans Fats Are Banned...
20 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely love this episode. It's so terrific. In this episode, the town of Langley Falls, bans all trans fats. So that means, Stan is legally separated form his favorite foods. That must be tough. He eventually begins smuggling trans fats into Langley Falls, from Chimdale, a neighboring town. And at first, it's really easy. But on his second trip, Stan is stopped by Internal Affairs Officer Turlington, who is patrolling the city border, making sure no trans fats get in. Stan is forced to discard all of his trans fats or he is at risk of being caught. If he is caught, Stan will be put in the newspaper's "Crime Beat" section, and he will be humiliated. Once he gets home, he is reprimanded by Francine, who is now deep frying all of their meals, and refuses to stop. So Stan decides to use Steve as a trans-fatty food mule, hoping his innocence will hopefully elude suspicion. But, after a few trips going successfully, one bad trip happens. Since Stan is showing his son that it's okay to break the law, Steve thinks it's okay to ride a bike without a helmet. So he doesn't, which eventually gets him caught. Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
