Hillary and ‘Tay continue to fight, he walks away again, Hillary starts to cry. Dave assumes she is upset because she has her period.

I am counting the days for this show to end. I would be shocked if it returns after the baseball playoffs.
Couch gag: Claymation Gumby
No Blackbord gag.

Lou finds Chief Wiggum naked in a tree. He won’t come down but Lou tempts him with a pizza bagel.
Another mediocre at best show. I think starting the season off with first a Marge than a Lisa-centric episode was not a good plan. More Bart and Homer shows are needed. Lisa is boring character thus making this a boring show.
“Stamps, those are for snail mail.” Thanks and please, murder suicide plot. Homer Jiggling for Justice. Margaritas in bed (blender), “I love waking up drunk.”
Homer’s RC helicopter and rescuing the soldier. Alexander Graham Bell and Elisha Gray, “Read the patent bitch.” “Yo I’m sneeze guard.” Gravedigger Bill. Bart’s racecar bed breaks are “shot.” Scratchy shooting his head off while watching “Cats” Milhouse the slug.

Lois comes home and Brian breaks up with Lois, as he knows she really loves Peter not him. Lois thanks him. The family is now back to normal.
Lois tells Brian, “And to think I was a day away from having sex with you.”
An average episode but the lack of a good secondary subplot limited the show. The first two episodes have not used Stewie to his full potential. Adam West was the star this week though.
Shooting the Portuguese fisherman. Gilmore Girls fast-talking and making out. TV show

Perhaps the best ‘American Dad’ episode so far. This show is really hitting its stride, although to reach the heights of ‘Family Guy’ may be asking for too much.
