Trivia

Passing a skeleton by the side of the road, Stan asks Jesus, "Anyone you knew?" Jesus answers, "Yeah, he was my father's jester. Really funny dude." This is an oblique reference to the famous graveyard scene in Hamlet (Act 5, Scene 1) "This same skull ... was Yorick's skull, the king's jester. ... Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy ...." See more »

The One With The Rapture...
20 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode is just so good. On Christmas Day, the entire Smith family go to church. Like they do every year. Stan and Francine eventually have sex in the janitors closet, because thats the thing you do in church on Christmas. But when the Rapture starts happening, it turns ugly. Hayley, Steve and Klause are all raptured and sent to Heaven. Then, when the priest/minister starts getting raptured, he says something like, "there is a god", which makes it surprising why he's being raptured. When everyone is gone, Stan, Francine and Roger are left below. They don't understand why. Meanwhile, Steve and Hayley are escorted to their personal Heavens. Steve finding out his is a virgin riding a unicorn that poops pepper-jack cheeseburgers. Interesting Heaven. Stan finds out that Jesus will be appearing and he tries to blame Francine for getting left behind, because of the sex-in-the-closet-thing. Francine becomes very angry and decides to leaves Stan, meeting the real Jesus in a diner. Stan finds out that the Jesus he's talking to is a fake. When he tries to make up with Francine she has decided to leave Stan for Jesus. Bummer. Seven years have passed and Stan has become a rouge hunter. But then, Francine is kidnapped by the Anti-Christ and a whole lot of stuff goes down. Overall, I give this episode a 10 out 10. One of the best episodes of the series.
