The One Where Peter Wins The Lottery...
29 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. It is really enjoyable and one of my all-time episodes.

In this episode, Peter decides to try and win the lottery. He takes out a second mortgage on the house and buys two hundred thousand lottery tickets. After looking through them all night, the family are tired, and disappointed that they didn't win. But then Peter brings out the real lottery tickets. Peter needed to be sure that they were to be trusted. When Brian picks up the first real lottery ticket, it has the winning numbers. The family then get very wealthy and their personalities completely change. They blow off their friends and eventually go broke. Then they tried to win the lottery again. They won again and ended up in the exact same place. Broke.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
