The One Where Lois Steals A Kid...
26 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode. I really think what Lois did was the right thing to do. You can't let your child continue to stay seriously ill, even if you're God says no to medicine. Well, I guess you can, but that's kind of stupid.

In this episode, Lois discovers that one of Stewie's friends from preschool is very sick, and has been denied serious medical treatment because his parents are Christian Scientists. So she decides to take matters into her own hands by stealing the child and getting him medical help.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
