When Peter is threatening to fire Lois, he asks her if the name Lacey Chabert means anything to her. Lacey Chabert was the original actress who played Meg in the series, the implication being if the show could fire her, they could fire Alex Borstein, who plays Lois. In real life however, Lacey Chabert chose to leave Family Guy and was not fired. See more »
