Storyline

Peter, Joe and Quagmire are depressed over their previous foursome still being a threesome, months after Cleveland's departure. The group decides to begin "auditioning" for a replacement to round out their group, and eventually settle on a smooth-jiving black man named Jerome. Peter hits it off with Jerome, until learning that Lois dated Jerome 20 years earlier. To Peter, it could just have well have been yesterday, and he soon develops an angry, jealous fit over the thought that a black man - let alone anyone - once had a relationship with Lois, and he demands an end to the friendship, Lois of course refusing. One night, a drunken Peter, fuming over Jerome, throws a beer bottle through the window of his house, knocking over a lamp and sparking a fire that destroys his house. The next morning, Peter learns that Lois invited Jerome to stay with the family until he can find a new place to live. Peter is unable to contain his jealousy, and after a series of pratfalls - including Jerome ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52748@yahoo.com>

Trivia

The colored circle in the center of the screen shown in one scene when Peter, Lois, and Jerome are in the kitchen, just before a commercial break is one of the "wait" cursors from Apple's Mac OS X. See more »

Goofs

When Lois is consoling Jerome after his house burns down, Peter says, "This whacked-out world. It just makes you want to grab your nephew and get in a van and shoot people in the DC area." The reference is to John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, who killed 10 people in a series of sniper attacks in October 2002, a crime for which Muhammad was later executed. Though initial eyewitness reports suggested that a white van was seen at the sites of the attacks, the reports proved to be erroneous and the snipers were in fact driving a Chevrolet Caprice sedan. Also, Malvo was a close friend of Muhammad's, not his nephew. However, Peter is a moron, and this was his mistake. See more »

Quotes

Glen Quagmire: You wanna maybe just go?
Brian Griffin: Quagmire, come on. I'm really trying hard here.
Glen Quagmire: Who asked you to try hard?
Brian Griffin: Nobody, but I'm trying to establish a friendship with you. All I've done is try to be nice to you and you still don't like me. How can you not like me?
Glen Quagmire: ...Okay, I'll tell ya. You are the worst person I know. You constantly hit on your best friend's wife, the man pays for your food and rescued you from certain death, and this is how you repay him? And to add insult to injury, you defecate all over...

Error in this Family Guy episode
22 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I noticed an error in this episode of Family Guy. It was during the part where Brian and Stewie were talking about Chris Farley. Stewie didn't realize Chris Farley was dead because he saw him on TV. Stewie said that he was watching Tommy Boy when he knocked on the TV and Chris Farley fell down the hill. It was in Black Sheep that he fell down the hill. This is the first error that I've noticed and I've seen all of the Family Guy episodes. That's really all I had to say but I guess you have to fill up 10 lines in this. I wasn't too crazy about the series premier this year but this episode was pretty good. So for my final sentence, I will say that Family Guy rocks and The Clevland show is good too but I miss him in Family Guy.
