Perfect Stewie & Brian story
15 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WARNING SPOILERS: do not read If you have not seen this episode

I loved this episode with its entertaining story written by Steve Callaghan, and excellent animation directed by Joe Vaux. The Story of the episode is Stewie begins having nightmares like being naked in class, having dinner with Glenn Close(voiced by herself), and screwing up the theme song saying pumpkin pie instead of laugh and cry which features a hilarious scene with some of the show's the unused gag characters(Jim Kaplan, Obie, Vern & Johnny, RJ, and Fouad) all of which involve an evil black monster with yellow-green eyes and teeth. So Brian decides to help Stewie with his problems in honestly the funniest scene in the episode by having many of the show's numerous characters dress up as each other(ex.Chris as Frankenstein, Meg as Chris, Mayor Adam West as Meg, and Opie as Quagmire)and say a rudely toot-toot. When that fails Stewie builds a machine to allow Brian to enter his sub-conscious and fight off the monster while making their way through Stewie's numerous phobias such as Tom Tucker reading "adult stuff", Three child rapists, and Farm Animals dancing with their genitals swinging in the air, before finally confronting the monster in giant fuzzball field. Brian takes the Giant Needle from a nightmare version of Dr. Hartman and throws at the monster defeating it, as the monster dies he withers away and transforms into Brian where its revealed that the source of Stewie's nightmares is him disappointing Brian. Brian tells Stewie he will always be proud of him and returns to reality. Meanwhile Peter starts hanging out in the Attic, much to Lois' chagrin. When he invites Quagmire, Joe, and Cleveland, Lois Fed up with them in the attic, nails the door shut and traps them in the attic. The men threaten to poop on Lois' wedding dress, at first she does not believe them but when they poop on the dress and break the attic door she relents and Quagmire who threw up in Peter's ass says he needs a week off from his friendship. Stewie then wakes up from this dream walks out and sees the ruined wedding dress and says the final throwaway line "There's a wedding dress out here covered in s**t". This episode along the Halloween episode are the best this season so far, I definitely recommend this episode to any Family Guy fan.
