I'm in the gooooooooo!!!
26 June 2017 | by mattrdanielsSee all my reviews

This is probably my favorite episode of American Dad. After a series of fake vacations that Stan implants into his family's memory by placing them in tanks from the CIA filled with a green goo like substance, they try to go on an actual vacation that Francine desperately wants. Everything seems to be going well until she begins to think it's a fake vacation like the rest and completely trashes the cruise ship before jumping overboard because she think it will wake her out of the goo. They end up on an island running for their lives until they are trapped in a cave where they finally get to have a Sunday night family dinner which is all Francine really wanted in the first place. Just wait until you see what they eat! The Roger side-story is also great. 10 out of 10 stars!
