    I was expecting more out of a season finale, but there were some pretty funny parts.

    Brian at the end and his F-You was awesome.... his nose was all bent. :D
    I replayed it 3 times.

    I thought the episode was slow at the beginning, but they made it up for it in the the last 5 minutes.

    I'm not sure why, but the frog scene was the only time I LOL'ed this episode. And yeah, it went on longer than needed (as those things usually do) but it was still funny.

    The pirate raid in the cars was good too.

    The frog scene had me laughing like crazy as well. Not sure why, but that was funny.

    The OJ scene was just wrong, wrong, wrong, and hilarious!

    There were only four problems with the episode, if you ask me (why, no, no you didn't, did you?):

    I just couldn't get past how Chris was dating somebody who, I assume, had to be at least four years older than he was (or maybe I misunderstood what a vet's intern is, but I assumed she was at least in college);

    The frog scene went a little too long (it's what Simpsons fans call a "rake scene" (there was an episode where Sideshow Bob stepped on a rake, causing the handle to hit him in the face - followed by the same thing happening eight more times) - it went from "funny" to "overdone");

    The Michael J. Fox joke crossed a line (and anybody who recorded the episode might want to keep a copy, because I would not be surprised if the gag is edited from future versions and the DVD, the way an Osama bin Laden joke was edited from an earlier episode);

    Finally, Fox chose that night to air one of the best American Dad episodes so far. (Little-known fact; pretty much the only "major" cartoon character where they make it a point to establish a continuity of left/right-handedness is that ten-year-old southpaw sensation, Bart Simpson - and this is almost certainly because Matt Groening is also left-handed.)

    Wait... Brian the DOG has a child with a human female, and you couldn't get past the fact that in this episode Chris was dating a girl who MIGHT be a few years older? :confused::D

    Well in high school through some classes you can intern at places, I know my high school had this, so she could VERY easily be in HS, and what jking said :D

    That's exactly what makes this scene funny! I went from laughing hard, to not, to literally crying while I was laughing BECAUSE it went on so long.

    It's kinda a family guy thing, remember the chicken fights, or Peter skinning his knee, it's been done like a 1/2 dozen times before on this show!


    Yes the joke was kinda in poor taste, but it really wasn't THAT bad.

    Glad that it's a good ep, I love American Dad too and haven't gotten to watch last nights yet.

    When I first started watching Family Guy I got annoyed at the scenes that went on so long, but then I started to appreciate the humor in that and I love them now. The frog scene was hilarious.

    Poor Brian's nose was at a right angle after Chris beat him with the chair.

    And what was that little 'x' on the cat.....

    Wait, so the whole Joe can't have sex because he's a cripple thing isn't going too far, but poking fun at MJF is crossing a line? The fact that they didn't show him sign it made it perfectly fine for me. Sure it was a little mean, but that doesn't mean it's not funny.

    Why is making fun of MJF crossing the line? Is it just because he's so well liked? They make fun of people all the time. What about when they made fun of Minnie Driver's massive head? I just don't see what makes it different? They're trying to cross the line, or at least straddle the thing, but this is the first time I've seen anyone actually say something, and multiple people at that.

    Did you acutely compare Minnie Driver's head size to MJF's Parkinson's? Ha ::eek:

    The seen was funny, say it coming, but was funny.
