Storyline

Brian tries out for a part with a local theater troupe, but is met with little encouragement from the judges. When Stewie gets up on stage to give them a heartfelt tongue-lashing, he immediately gets picked to join a junior acting program, where he butts heads with Olivia, the club prima donna. Peter, meanwhile, rescues a man from drowning, only to discover later that he and his family are all nudists. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
