Stewie Griffin: I like you lot. I guess you could say I... really like you. I would... even dare to go a little further, perhaps. I... care a great deal about you. Very great deal. Maybe even... deeper than that. I... I... I love you. I mean, you know, not in like a, "Hey, let's, you know, let's have an underpants party," or whatever grownups do when they're in love, but I mean, I mean, I love you as one loves another person whom one simply cannot do without.
Brian Griffin: Well I... I love you, too, Stewie.
Stewie Griffin: You give my life...

I am befuddled by the logic of the negative reviews
3 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first time I have ever reviewed anything on any site. I know it's random, but I have to say something about not only the episode but the bizarre response from some people. Then I will get off my soapbox.

Not liking the episode is one thing. Dismissing it entirely because it goes against the wave of the very controversial and often criticized style of a typical "Family Guy" episode makes no sense to me. Nearly every negative review says the same things. "Where's the cutaway gags?" "It didn't make me laugh once!" Answers: "They aren't there" and "It wasn't trying to." Okay, so maybe the momentary way over-the-top gross-out humor and drunk Stewie gags were meant to elicit laughs, and I'll admit that on the former it failed to do so. But I can forgive it. I loved this episode. It is the first time "Family Guy" has really challenged viewers intellectually and spiritually. It is by far the darkest and most existential of any episode. It is the first time that you could actually close-read an episode of it (Brian reading David Copperfield to Stewie as a bedtime story is completely loaded with meaning, FWIW.) So yeah, feel free to expect one thing from "Family Guy" and be disappointed if you are not satisfied with the radical shift in tone. But it's perplexing to see someone say "It didn't make me laugh!" or "There were no non-sequiturs!" Those points are not inherent demerits. For one episode, just one, they were kind of the point.
