Goofs

The whole storyline of Peter's first name being "Justin", with "Peter" bumped to his middle name, contradicts almost every episode previous. "Peter" has been his first name for thirteen years, and Family Guy: Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater established that his middle name is "Lowenbrau". See more »

Turned out bad, but started out funny. Also, why did it take 13 seasons for Joe to arrest Quagmire for statutory rape?
26 July 2018 | by adampkalbSee all my reviews

For a bad Family Guy episode, it's more fascinating than disgusting, unlike Herpe the Love Sore, and even for what mildly disturbing moments there are, the rest of the episode's plot isn't so mundane like Stewie is Enciente was, especially with the controversy this episode got on . I'm surprised Quagmire's arrest for statutory rape hasn't happened before this one, but I am even more surprised that this episode had 2 interesting plots where a single plot thread carries over to another story and still turned up 1 1/3 minutes short, so they needed to pad it out with Peter-I mean, Justin's karaoke phase. You wait 65 seconds for something to happen and that's enough time to take a pee break. The oddest thing about this episode is that Quagmire doesn't even appear for the first 7 minutes, and we get to the real story about Quagmire and his mom when he takes the underage girl Kira (voiced by Emily Osment) home from Justin's party.

I have also noticed that Quagmire's situation in this episode is a lot like Diamond Tiara in Crusaders of the Lost Mark. Although they are not the same kind of show, Family Guy and Friendship is Magic both have their issues with a few infamously bad episodes (Peter-assment, Seahorse Seashell Party, Putting Your Hoof Down, A Canterlot Wedding, One Bad Apple, Brian's a Bad Father, The Cutie Re-Mark) forgiving both protagonists and antagonists too easily, whether or not they deserve a second chance. Both of these episodes have their guilty character, when they finally get punishment, try to redeem everything they did in 1 episode by showing us that their mother raised them to be bad like them.

I suppose Crusaders of the Lost Mark is better by comparison, except I was still kind of disappointed with how the Crusaders got their marks, which ignored what they didn't realize they were talented at in The Show Stoppers, and what's worse, Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon didn't even appear in any episodes after Crusader's of the Lost Mark. However, on the "bad mother backstory" comparison, Quagmire's Mom does have one leg up from Crusaders of the Lost Mark (aside from remembering to have the original main characters on the sidelines most of the time). Diamond Tiara here is a different character than the meanie she was in Ponyville Confidential, and when she stood up to her mom, DT's mom looks down on the other pony children instead of attempting to be a better mother to Diamond Tiara. However, GQ's mom has a heart because she really regrets being a bad mom to her son and helps him when he needs her. For that I can almost forgive this episode for finding statutory rape funny. All it was missing was for Quagmire to learn that statutory rape is bad and he shouldn't do it if he doesn't want to leave his best friends behind. Instead the moral of the story is that helping your son is the most Christian thing you can do, even if that means...never mind, I won't spoil it. This episode certainly isn't great, but it's not soulless either. Like Brian and Stewie, Quagmire's Mom has its good heartfelt moments, but went through a lot of crab to get there.
