The Griffins are invited to be contestants on the game show "Family Feud." After winning the game and advancing to the show's bonus round (called Fast Money), Lois puts the Griffins in prime position to win the game, but Peter bungles the opportunity when he stubbornly refuses to change his answer to the first question. Host Richard Dawson tries to remind Peter of the rules, but when Peter continues to argue and grabs Dawson, he gets pushed through a podium on the set and is knocked unconscious. At the hospital, Dr. Hartman tells Lois that Peter has amnesia. At home, Lois has to re-teach Peter everything about his life, including re-introducing him to his friends and family and menial skills such as eating, driving and sex. After the latter, Peter realizes that he enjoys sex and believes he can sleep with any woman. When Peter introduces Tiffani Amber Thiessen to Lois, she loses patience with her husband and moves herself and the rest of the family out to sort out her feelings. ... Written by Brian Rathjen <>

[Lois has re-introduced an amnesiac Peter to sex]
Peter Griffin: If sex with the rest of you is half as good as it was with her, then I think we're all gonna get along just fine.
Chris Griffin: Yay!
Lois Griffin: Well, no. No, Peter, you can't have sex with the kids.
Meg Griffin: Well, I wish you'd told him that before he lost his memory.
[shocked gasps]
Meg Griffin: It was a joke! I was just making a joke!
Stewie Griffin: *That's* your sense of humor?
Meg Griffin: I was just kidding. God!
Lois Griffin: Meg, that's awful.

Easily the best episode in a long time.
10 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is probably going to turn out as the funniest episode of the season.

Last year I was having doubts about the show - after all, it had a run of a few bad episodes, and wasn't really keeping with the high standard we've come to expect from Family Guy.

Luckily, I can safely say that the show IS BACK after watching this episode.

It looks to me like they brought in a new set of writers, because this episode strikes a much funnier tone than other recent episodes.

I definitely laughed more than I have at an episode of Family Guy for a long time.



Richard Dawson - Name something you sit in

Lois - A chair Stewie - My own faeces

Richard Dawson - Your favorite holiday?

Lois - Christmas! Stewie - 911.
