The major sub-plot circles around the youngest Griffin, Stewie, who has a near-death experience at a pool when a lifeguard chair falls on him, but he survives. After having a vision of being in Hell, he decides to change his ways, but this doesn't last long. While watching television, he and Brian spot a man that looks like Stewie. Brian is convinced that he is Stewie's real father, until Stewie learns that the man is actually himself as an adult, taking a vacation from his own time period. Baby Stewie visits thirty years later to discover that his adult self, going by the name Stu, is a single blue-collar middle-aged virgin working at a Circuit City-type store. Meanwhile, Peter and Lois are trying to teach their two older kids, Meg and Chris, to date. In the future, Chris, who hasn't changed much, is working as a cop and is married to a foul-mouthed hustler named Vanessa. Meg is now called Ron, since she had a sex-change after college.

Did You Know?
According to the DVD commentary there was an episode called "Queer as Stewie" where Stewie has a near-death experience and comes out of the closet, but when Fox canceled Family Guy in 2002, the idea was scrapped. Eventually, the idea became the first part of the movie, with the latter part of the plot removed. Also, "Stewie B. Goode" was originally going to be one episode, but the story was thought to be too long for half an hour and was changed into a DVD movie. See more

I'm watching your every move, Quark, so don't think you can get away with any law-breaking.
Yeah, yeah, whatever, man.
I mean it! You'll have me to deal with!
Ohhhh, I'm really scared.
I could morph into a giant python and eat you alive.
Hey, here's an idea: why don't you morph into a guy with something interesting to talk about?
The movie was later re-edited and aired on the Fox network as a three-part season four finale for Family Guy
with some scenes removed, mainly because they were too risqué for network television. They are
- the opening night gala for the movie (mainly because it's too long to be placed in a single episode)
- the "movie's" opening credits, done similarly to the revised opening credits for the episode "The Road to Rhode Island".
- Chris doing a triple somersault dive; Lois remarks that she could have qualified for the Olympics but got pregnant with Meg, but "now I'm pro-choice."
- Quagmire and a woman leave the pool's pump room, and he comments that he can't go swimming for a half-hour.
- Peter saying "and stuff comes out" when describing adult videos.
- Stewie comparing Brad's backstroke swimming to one of his stools.
- a scene from Roseanne with Peter as Dan (Roseanne just mumbles her lines).
- Quagmire tied to the hotel bed dialing the phone with his penis.
- Det. Scrotes/_"The Shield" (2002)_ parody.
- a fat and old Britney Spears in the future catching on fire in a wheelchair.
- Ella Fitzgerald hitting a note and causing a glass to break, with pieces causing her accompanist, Ray Charles, to go blind.
- Stewie and Brian in The Drunken Clam playing Pac-Man.
- the first scene of future Stewie; in fact, the first episode was written as a stand-alone episode, and this scene was added to help tie it in with the other two.
- a scene from Thundercats where Lion-O uses his "sight beyond sight" to watch Cheetara in the bathroom.
- a black screen with "Intermission" on it (in what is the break between episodes two and three of the broadcast version), while the Griffins make various comments.
- future Chris pointing out numerous violations with Lois's car, but he'll overlook them if she gives him a cookie.
- a cutaway scene where Peter and Bono are stuck on a desert island with a crate of food that Bono won't open because it's intended for starving children, but then Bono takes some of the food while Peter isn't watching.
- Stu (future Stewie) telling Stewie about his prom date.
- when Chris and his wife argue in front of Pablo, the line "This f***in' kid's from Guam" becomes "That kid's from Guam".
- in Stu's apartment, Stu agrees to let Stewie stay for one night.
- Stu changes Stewie's diaper, and tells Stewie to "enjoy your left testicle while you can".
- future Peter and Lois watch "Law & Order: Petty Crimes Against Municipal Property In Excess Of $5000".
- when Stewie reads from "The Joy of Sex", the line "Put it in, take it out, put it in, take it out" is changed to "And in and out and in and out".
- the line "insert your phallus into her vagina" had "phallus" replaced with "penis", although Stewie pronounced it to rhyme with "tennis".
- a cutaway to Peter as the first director of Terms of Endearment, in which he repeatedly zooms in on the star's breasts in her death scene.
- after Stu's apartment burns down, Stewie notes it isn't the first time his help was not appreciated, followed by a scene of Peter giving Lois an arcade Galaga machine for her birthday.
- at the retirement home, Tom and Diane do a news report, but it's done to someone standing directly in front of them.
- Lois sets two conditions on giving Stu the money; Stewie has to promise that Chris doesn't get married, and that Lois does not end up in a retirement home.
- at Chris's wedding, when the priest asks if anyone objects, Stewie kills the bride with a rocket launcher.
- after the end of the movie/third episode, the DVD has a post-movie party at The Drunken Clam.
- One scene was redone entirely. When Stewie was in the bed naked with Roger Moore's number on his body the scene was redone with Stewie fully clothed with a piece of paper instead. Meanwhile some scenes were added to interlink the episodes. They are:
- a Soap-style cliffhanger.
- a clip from _"The Chevy Chase Show" (1993)_ .
- Kiefer Sutherland's narration via the 24-style intro.
