Did You Know?


The visuals of Brian's hallucination are inspired by the famous painting "Dulle Griet" of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Dulle Griet is called Mad Meg in English, which is an obvious reference to Meg's outburst in this episode. See more »


Chris Griffin: Look, Meg, I don't know what your problem is. I thought Dad's humming was pretty entertaining.
Meg Griffin: You know what? This is what I'm talking about. This is a perfect example. You're my brother. You're supposed to be on my side, and you're such a bastard to me
Chris Griffin: HOW AM I A BASTARD?
Meg Griffin: Oh, you want the whole story?
Lois Griffin: Meg, please.
Meg Griffin: Not now, Mom.

This Ruined Family Guy...
3 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching the episode, I almost died; Not of laughter, but of disappointment. Brian has a bad trip and Meg shouts criticisms at her family. This really could've ended well. And I mean it. The Griffins could've just seen their wrongdoings and apologized and promised to take it easier on her. Instead the status quo is god. And Brian's bad trip even could've tied into the main plot. Or at least that Meg and Brian could've gotten along better after this episode. The moral: Stay in an abusive relationship. Why? To the benefit of your abuser. That is the biggest load of B.S. that I have ever heard. My brother abused me as a child, and I snapped. I kind of did what Meg did here. My brother and I get along much better now. He's my best friend. Unlike here, where Meg gets the bad ending, so to speak. She continues to be a Lightningrod for abuse and insult. Although Family Guy has some good episodes now and then, Seahorse Seashell Party (What's with that title anyways?) is the worst episode of anything I've ever seen, next to Ren Seeks Help.
