The One Where Francine And Stan Can't Decide How To Raise Steve...
25 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this episode. It's so good. In it, Stan finds out that his college, Duper, cloned himself. Stan and Francine have been fighting about how to raise Steve, so Stan decides to clone Steve, that way, Francine can raise her Steve the way she wants, and Stan can raise his Steve the way he wants. This turns out to be hilarious. Stan raises his Steve, the clone, with lots of discipline. Francine raises her Steve, the original, very passively and with lots of love. Francine's parenting ends up turning her Steve into a spoiled brat with a desire to do nothing ever. Whilst Stan's parenting makes his Steve incredibly athletic and successful in school. However, it turns out that Stan's Steve, the clone, is a psychopath that committed various acts of animal cruelty and had kidnapped Steve, the original, with the intention to kill him. This is episode is just so funny and shows that you don't have to raise a child strictly, because they could want to kill you later. *giggle, giggle* Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
