Episode Quotes
Brian: Hey Stewie, you ready to go home?
Stewie: About an hour ago, this party sucks.
Brian: What happened to your face?
Stewie: I'm a kitty cat. Stupid face painters apparently never heard of Darth Maul. This party's worse then a Mexican funeral.
{Cut to Mexican funeral w/ 14 people crammed in an open casket}
Stewie: Come on let's get out of here Brian.
Brian: Wait, hang on a second, Who's that?
Steiwe: That's Jarod's mom. Her husband died in Iraq.
Brian: Really?
Stewie: No wait he was either wounded or killed, I don't remember.
Brian: Well which is it Stewie, wounded or killed, I can work with either.
Stewie: No he's dead he's dead. Just like the Pink Panther.
{Cut to hospital bed}
Mrs. Pink Panther: What's wrong with him doctor?
Doctor: Well it seems his lungs are completely filled with Owens Corning Fiberglass Insulation
Mrs. Pink Panther: What?! Will he be okay?
Doctor: No he won't be okay, one third of his body weight is Owens Corning Fiberglass Insulation
{Pink Panther flat lines}
Doctor: Well that's it but don't worry, He won't burn in hell thanks to all that Owens Corning Fiberglass Insulation
{Cut back to party: Brian and Stewie approach Jarod's mom}
Brian: How 'bout that magician huh?
Jarod's Mom: Yeah he's great. I love magicians.
I don't know why but I've always found magic to be very sexy.
Brian: I'm a magician!
Jarod's Mom: You are! How long have you been doing magic?
Brian: Oh a long time. I used to work with Doug Henning.
Jarod's Mom: Wow
Brian: Yeah, wanna see my Doug Henning...
Welcome to the wonderful world of magic, hope I don't get aids
Jarod's Mom: Oh god, that is so my humor. You know, my son's birthday party is next weekend, any chance I could hire you to do your act?
Brian: Absolutly, I think the magic's starting to happen already.
Stewie: Brian this is painful. Like listening to those 2 foreign guys down at the coffee shop who've been living in the US almost long enough to sound American
{Cut to coffee shop}
Guy #1: Oh man, what a good bunch of partying at that discotech. They played one of my audience requests
Guy #2: Way awesome. I myself drank like 5 liters of beer, any more and I would have ended up in hospital man
Guy #1: Oh you said it friend, but I wanted to stay cause I almost had sex on this girl
Guy #2: Oh yeah but it was so expensive, each drink was like 6 dollars 40

Brian: {shuffling card deck} And if I've done this right, then this is your card Stewie
Stewie: Really Brian, card tricks? That's what's going to close the deal with this woman?
Brian: Well yeah why not?
Stewie: You need more then that, you need an act. Listen, I'll be your assistant and we'll put on a whole big show.
Brian: Really?
Stewie: Yeah we'll do all the great tricks. You can even split me in half.
Brian: What?
Stewie: Saw me in half.
Brian: You know I am still pretty shaky on some of this stuff, I guess I could use the help.
Stewie: Great, and we'll get you a wand, a top hat and a cape.
In fact you can use Peter's cape from last years Halloween costume
{Cut to last Halloween}
Peter: Hi Brian, I'm Count Crotchula the bulging vampire.
I'll bite your neck but also look how big I am down there.
Brian: That costume doesn't make any sense
Peter: Don't stifle my creativity!
See that bulge down there Brian? What is that? What is it? It can't be my pointy teeth cause those are all the way up here.
I'll let you in on a little secret.
(whispering in Brian's ear) Happy Halloween

{At Jared's birthday party}
Jared's Mom: Okay kids it's time for the big magic show.
How about a big round of applause for 'The Amazing Brian'
(Wearing a red dress and red wig) Stewie: I can't believe I agreed to four costume changes.
Oh who am I kidding, I insisted on it.
Jared's Mom: Brian thanks so much for doing this, Paul and I are so excited to see your act
Brian: Ahh thanks I... wait what?
Jared's Mom: Paul my boyfriend.
Paul this is Brian.
Brian: Boyfriend, OH COME ON! I paid $800 for all this crap, you have a boyfriend!
Paul: Yeah and I'm a great guy. I'm unemployed but that makes her feel useful in the relationship.
Jared's Mom: I'm gonna fix him
Paul: Our relationship will do fine on that basis
Jared's Mom: If he had his life together I wouldn't into it
Paul: But I don't
Brian: God I am so sick of this crap!
Kid: Is this the show?
Brian: You know what, to hell with both of you, I am outta here!
Stewie: (pops out of magic hat wearing a rabbit costume) Are we doing this thing or what? Brian? Brian?
This was a lot of effort for nothing. Like trying to tell Matthew Mcconaughey how much he sucks
{Cut to diner}
Stewie: You know Matthew, I may never get another chance to say this so I just want to get this off my chest.
You are just awful, you're one of the worst actors in the history of film and I think you need to just go away
Matthew Mcconaughey: Oh thanks man, the truth is I spend at least 90% of my year going away, exploring exotic places, having sex with my beautiful girlfriend, just doing sit-ups, I mean that really... and then counting money.
The money that I made off my terrible films I put out into the American populous because they just love to see me doing what it is that I do.
Stewie: Yes but you're not hearing me... 'Dazed and Confused' was the one thing that was passable after that...
Matthew Mcconaughey: Oh thanks man that actually launched my career
Stewie: After that, everything else was awful, 'Contact' They didn't even need you in that movie, they could have done the whole movie without you
Matthew Mcconaughey: I know, I know I said the same thing, but they were just like - Oh we need a good looking guy with a great ass and some tight abs to provide some down home enthusiasm to this picture. Something to counter balance Jodie Foster, they took her to be slightly cold, uh unapproachable so they put me in there.
I said it didn't make any sense. Said the same thing about that Bill Murray elephant movie but they said well the audience needs you.
Stewie: You make me physically sick to my stomach and I wish you that would get a heart attack.
Matthew Mcconaughey: I totally feel you man, the truth of the matter is I don't like my movies either but man they keep offering me money and I do it and I get to around the world, I mean did you see 'Sahara'. I'll tell you what that movie gave me, was the opportunity to take an Airstream all across the country and sell that picture one person at a time.
Stewie: You suck donkey ass
Matthew Mcconaughey: Hey you can't prove that

{At the Griffin house}
Brian: That was so humiliating. I mean look at all the stuff I put myself through just to get laid
Stewie: Oh don't worry my friend, one day you'll find your soul mate
Brian: The sad thing I already did, years ago. Tracy Flannagin. She was the greatest girl I ever met and I blew it
Stewie: (yawning) Oh you should look her up
Brian: Oh am I boring you?
Stewie: No... just long day
Brian: I suppose I could look her up. I just wonder if she'd even want to see me? I wasn't exactly the nicest guy in the world
{Cut to Brian and Tracy sitting on the couch}
Tracy: And then in high school I was violated sexually by my father, it happened on numerous occasions & I was too afraid to tell anyone because I felt like somehow it was my fault
Brian: So... you do go all the way

{At Tracy's house}
Brian: Well here goes (Rings doorbell)
(Tracy answers door smoking and coughing)
Brian: Uh... Tracy? Tracy Flannigan?
Tracy Oh my god! Brian Griffin, Is that you?
Brian: Uh...Yeah, it's me
Stewie: And all he wants is to kiss you one more time
Brian: Wow you sure look...different from the last time I saw you
Tracy: Yeah, Haircut.
Brian: So to get out of here I just make a left out of the driveway and drive as fast as I can
Tracy: Wait Brian, I'm actually glad you found me. There's somebody I've wanted you to meet for a long time
Stewie: From the look of those toenails, I'd bet it's that little Lamacil monster
Tracy: Brian, this is Dylan. He's... your son.
Stewie: Oh no way! Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

{At Tracy's house}
Brian: Gosh this is... a lovely home Tracy
Stewie: That's so weird, it smells like there's a cat but I bet there's no cat.
Tracy: I wanted you to meet Dylan for a long time Brian
Stewie: Well Brian, a son. How about that?
Brian: My god, this is more uncomfortable then the good-bye in the Wizard of Oz
{Cut to Wizard of Oz}
Dorothy: Good-bye Tin Man
Tin Man: Good-bye Dorothy
Dorothy: Good-bye Lion
Lion: Good-bye Dorothy
Dorothy: I think I'll miss you most of all Scarecrow
Tin Man: Oh okay, kind of an odd thing to say
Lion: Yeah sort of a weird comment right in front of all of us
Tin Man: Kind of thought this was a team effort
Lion: Yeah, yeah really glad I risked my life and everything
Tin Man: Yeah, you're like 5 minutes from gone and you leave with that
Lion: Yeah
Tin Man: You know that's like cutting a huge fart and just walking out of the room.
And that's how we'll remember you, as a big fart
Lion: Good-bye big fart
{On Tracy's porch}
Brian: So Dylan, um, shouldn't you be in school?
Dylan: I don't know
Brian: It's Wednesday
Dylan: Up yours
Stewie: Nice kid. Say Brian, now that I think about it, how can you possibly have a 13 year old son, when you yourself are only 7?
Brian: Well those are dog years
Stewie: That doesn't make any sense
Brian: You know what Stewie, if you don't like it go on the internet and complain

{At the Griffin House}
Brian: Oooh it was awful, that kid was a complete thug. I'm telling you I could get out of there fast enough.
Peter: Boy Brian, you dodged a bullet not having to raise that kid.
Your life would have been more miserable then a lonely old widow living in a downstairs apartment.
{Cut to split level view of 2 apartments}
(Man upstairs sneezes)
Old Woman: (Bangs broom on her ceiling) Quiet! Keep it down up there!
(Man upstairs sighs)
Old Woman: (banging) What did I just say! I'm calling the police!
{Back to Griffin couch}
Lois: I don't know Brian, don't you think you have a responsibility to your son?
Brian: Hey Lois, I didn't even know I had a son until today, and besides, it's not like Tracy ever asked for my help
Stewie: Yeah it seems like they're all set without you. She's done a fine job creating a child friendly environment bo-dee-bo...(Brian slaps Stewie to the ground)
Great parenting
Lois: I don't know Brian, raising a child is a very rewarding experience
Peter: You know what else is rewarding Lois, shutting your vadge
Lois: What?
Peter: What?
(Doorbell rings)
Brian: Dylan wha...what are you doing here?
Dylan: My mom wanted me to give you this
Brian: (reading note) To Brian From Tracy. He's your problem now. PS Will you write me a recommendation for the University of Phoenix?
No, I'm not going to put myself on the line like that but Dylan, my god!
Stewie: Everybody, this handsome muscular boy is Brian's son Dylan.
Dylan is going to be staying with us for awhile
Lois: Dylan it's so nice to meet you
Dylan: Shut up bitch
Peter: Ooohhh he got you Lois
Brian: No No No Tracy can't do this, she can't just leave him here!
Lois: Well we can't just turn him away Brian, after all he is family
Brian: I don't know, where's he gonna sleep?
Lois: He can sleep in Stewie's room
(To Stewie) Would you like that sweety?
Stewie: No my pants just got shorter cause I hated the idea

Brian: And this is Chris, Chris this my son Dylan.
Chris: Hi Dylan
Dylan: All the stuff in here is mine now.
Chris: Oh. Well Okay but be careful opening the closet because that's where the evil monkey lives.
(Evil Monkey jumps out and points)
(Dylan beats Evil Monkey unconscious)

Chris: Yeah! I haven't been in my closet for years.
Boy there is a lot of feces in here
{In the Griffin living room}
(Dylan enters and smashes vase against the wall)

Peter: Something on your mind son?
Dylan: Shut up dude, you're just a fat old bastard
Peter: Well not to get technical sir, but you are the bastard
{Cut to silent film entitled 'Peter Griffin's Front Parlor Ribticklers'}
Man: (Captioned in comic strip) I say, How do you get into a building which has neither doors nor windows?
(Next slide) Peter: (Captioned) I'll bite. How?
(Next slide) Man: (Captioned) You run around and around until you're all in.
(Next slide) Peter: (Captioned) Schnockers! He did it again!
{Griffin living room}
Dylan: I hate you all! I didn't ask to be born! If I had a gun I would kill you all!
Peter: Did you hear that Lois? Now we know what to get him for Christmas. Oh I love the holidays.
Lois: Brian you have got to get Dylan under control, he's terrorizing our whole family
Peter: Yeah you wouldn't believe what he did to Meg yesterday. He made her watch the other 178 hours of Monty Python stuff that isn't funny or memorable
{Cut to Meg tied in the basement}
TV: I have a pet hedgehog named Zippy and I shall walk her to town. And each time my foot hits the ground, I shall say boing!
Meg: I'm a girl, I don't even like the good Monty Python sketches
{Griffin living room}
Brian: Don't worry, I got in under control. I'm monitoring Dylan from here on Stewie's baby monitor.
(From monitor)
Stewie: Hey Dylan, hey come in here for a second
Dylan: Stewie, why are you nude?
Stewie: Oh just a little something I do once a week around here called Naked Tea Party.
Got my teacup here, now all I need is a tea bag. Is that something that interests you my friend?
Dylan: You're weird
Stewie: Yeah and you're attractive NOW TAKE YOUR *beep*ING PANTS OFF!
Dylan: I'm outta here
Stewie: Did you see that Rupert? How to lose a guy in 10 seconds starring Stewie Griffin huh, gee whiz

Peter: Hey Lois, is the air conditioning on? I just woke up from a nap and I feel drafty
Lois: Peter we don't have air conditioning
Peter: Well that's awfully peculiar
Lois: Oh my god, Peter look!
(Lois holds a mirror to Peter to reveal he has a mowhawk)
Peter: Oh damn it Dylan, what the hell! Well thank god I'm full of play-doh
(Peter squeezes out brown play-doh from his scalp and shapes it into his hairstyle)
There we are
Lois: That's it! I'm telling Brian he has to reign Dylan in once and for all
Peter: Hey where is Brian anyway?
(Brian comes running in with a paper bag over his head)
(Lois removes paper bag)

Brian: Oh thanks Lois. Dylan put this paper bag on my head and I could not for the life of me figure out how to get it off.
That kid's a sociopath
Lois: Well it's time you laid down the law with him.
Brian: I couldn't agree more. I'm going to kick him out of this house faster then NASA kicked out the Coco Puffs bird
{Cut to NASA}
NASA Employee: Okay your physical exam was within range. You aced the flight simulator. I guess all that's left is the psychological screening
Sonny: Okay
NASA Employee: How do you feel about this?
Sonny: aaaahhh ooohhhh my god Coco Puffs. No that's not me anymore. I'm just here to fly sir
{In Stewie's room}
Brian: Alright Dylan you know what, this isn't working out!
Alright, I don't care that I'm your father and you don't care that you're my son, we don't have anything in common. I think it's best you just get out of this house!
Dylan: Fine I hate it here anyhow! Get out of my way!
(Dylan bumps Brian and a bag of pot falls to the floor)
Brian & Dylan: My pot!
Brian & Dylan: Your pot?
{Brian and Dylan sit baked in Stewie's room}
Brian: And then in chapter 28 of my novel the other pilots finally trust the Japanese pilot and let him, and let him into, um, their group
Dylan: Dude that is an amazing story. Hey, hey what if they were Korean pilots?
Brian: Yeah I'm not really looking for notes, but you know Dylan I gotta tell you something I'm sorry I wasn't around when you were growing up
Dylan: Don't... just, just don't
Brian: If I had known having a son could be like this...
Dylan: How dare you!
Brian: ...I didn't know...
Dylan: You have no right man, no right!
Brian: ...it wasn't my fault...
Dylan: You weren't there for me!
Brian: Damn it don't you think I wanted to be
(Brian and Dylan cry and hug)
Brian: Shhh, Shhh it's okay, it's okay
Look I know I wasn't there for you man, for all of those years but that's gonna change. It's going to be different from now on and I'm going to make you into a better person starting first thing tomorrow.
Stewie: (Walks through room nude) Just passing through. See anything you like just speak up

{In the Griffin kitchen}
Brian: Hey there everybody. Was somebody looking for a son with a bright new path to adulthood and his very very proud dad?
Lois: Oh Dylan you got a haircut, aren't you handsome
Brian: From now on I plan to be a real father to Dylan and together we are going to turn his life around, right champ?
Dylan: You said it dad
Brian: All right, you ready for school?
Dylan: Yeah, hey can I drive today?
Brian: Oooohhh this kid, he's only 13
Dylan: I know I was just kidding
Brian: Oooohhh we got a young Adam Sandler here I think... Right? Right?
Peter: Yes

{At James Woods High School}
(Lois drops off Meg and Chris)

Chris: Bye Mom
Meg: Bye
Lois: Alright kids, have a good day at school
{In Brian's car}
Brian: Hey Dylan. Have a great day at school
Dylan: Thanks Dad, Hey, Knock Knock
Brian: Who's there?
Dylan: You're there
Brian: I'll always be there Dylan

{At The Drunken Clam}
(On TV)
Al Harrington: Crudely painted not-so-funny plywood cut-out folk art,
Crudely painted not-so-funny plywood cut-out folk art,
Crudely painted not-so-funny plywood cut-out folk art,
Hi I'm Al Harrington of Al Harrington's Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man Warehouse and Emporium.
As an unwanted result of a recent lawsuit I am now in possession of hundreds of pallets of crudely painted not-so-funny plywood cut-out folk art, and it's just waiting to transform your uncut trash strewn lawn into a living canvas that tells passers by 'Hey everyone, a real funny bugger lives here'.
Your neighbors will chuckle warmly and motorists will slow down and applaud when they cast their eyes on such favorites as sorta Ben & Jerry's looking cow, black silhouetted cowboy leaning on barn and everybody's favorite, fat woman bending over tending to her garden in big polka dotted bloomers.
Most of this stuff is priced to move but until it does it's an enormous fire hazard so please come see me on Route 2 in Weekapaw. Look for the sorta Ben and Jerry's cow out front!
Tom Tucker: We interrupt this program to bring you grim news out of LaGuardia Airport where a 767 has been forced to make a crash landing
Brian: Awww man I'll tell ya, now that I'm a parent I can't even watch stories like that, I just think, you know, I just think oh my god what if Dylan were on that plane?
Oh my god! I just don't know what I'd do! I don't know what I would do.
Glen: Yeah, yeah I understand that'd be tough
Brian: Oh Oh no oh no, no no no Quagmire, no you do not understand. Until you have a child, until you have a child, you do not understand. Okay
Glen: Damn it
Peter: It's been like this all week. Watch this... Hey Brian what would you do if Dylan fell out a window?
Brian: Oh my god Oh my god I don't even want to think about that! I don't even want to think about that! Oh my god! Oh god!
Glen: Brian, what would you do if Dylan was in a fire?
Brian: Oh my god Oh my god I don't even want to think about that! I don't even want to think about that! Oh my god! Oh god! Knock on wood Knock on wood Knock on wood!
Oh I can't hear anymore of this.
Joe: Peter your dog is giving me diabetes
Peter: Oh boy you're not kidding, I tell ya I wish that old hag of Brian's had never even told him he had a kid
Glen: Well wait a minute Peter maybe that's the answer. You just got to get his mother to take him back
Peter: How the hell am I supposed to do that?
Glen: She's an idiot redneck Peter, tricking her should be easier then escaping from Canadian Alcatraz
{Cut to Canadian Alcatraz}
Inmate: Can I go out through here?
Guard: Just be back by bedtime
Inmate: Okay

{In Griffin kitchen}
Lois: Lunch is ready everyone
Brian: Whoa Whoa Whoa Whoa Lois, Lois this is, this is white bread
Lois: Yeah so?
Brian: Don't we have any of that whole grain stuff?
Lois: No this was cheaper
Brian: I just, I just don't want Dylan eating white bread
Lois: Brian there's nothing wrong with it. Our kids eat...
Brian: Lois Lois I don't want Dylan eating white bread
Lois: Brian, I promise you it's fine...
Brian: Lois, Lois, Lois I will decide what's best for my child alright
Lois: Look will you take it easy
Brian: And, And I do not want to have this conversation in front of my son
Lois: Okay you know what, that's it Brian! Feed him whatever you want! Tell, tell you what, go up to my jewelry box, take my gold jewelry, melt it down, make it into bread and feed him that. Is that good enough? Is gold bread good enough for your Dylan.

Peter: Hey everybody! Look who's back to pick up her son
Tracy: This isn't the Price is Right! You said we were going to the Price is Right!
Brian: Peter, what the hell is this?
Dylan: Mom what are you doing here?
Peter: Tracy wants Dylan back. Don't you want Dylan back Tracy?
(Tracy barfs on the table)
Peter: What a joyous family reunion. Isn't this great Brian? Now Dylan can go back with him mom, and you can stop acting like such a jackass
Brian: So that's what this all about huh?
Lois: I must say you have been a little insufferable lately Brian
Peter: We just want the old you back that's all
Brian: Okay alright look, maybe I have been acting different lately. That's only because I've truly connected with the one bit of flesh and blood that I have on this earth, and I have no intention of giving that up.
(silence falls over the kitchen)
Tracy: Who wants a half & half?
Stewie: Oh I'll throw my hat into that ring.
Dylan: Wait a minute Dad. I think maybe I should go with her.
Brian: What!? Dylan, Why?
Dylan: Look at her, she needs me, a lot more then you do
Brian: But, we were just starting to make a real connection
Dylan: Listen, I'll always be grateful to you for turning my life around. But now thanks to you, I finally have a chance to transform my mom's life the same way you transformed mine
Brian: Wow I guess a Dad couldn't ask for more then that.
I'm proud of you Dylan. My life will never be the same for knowing you. Goodbye and good luck.
Dylan: Goodbye Dad.
Come on Mom, let's go
Peter: Bye, thanks for coming
(Dylan and Tracy drive off in a cab)
Brian: I'm going to miss that boy
Peter: You know I just finally figured it out, she looks like a really hot Tim Russert. Right? Right?
Brian: Yes!
