Family Guy: "Meet the Quagmires" Review - IGN
Later that night, Peter and Brian sneak into the dance to prevent the kiss that caused Lois to fall in love with Quagmire. They get in by crawling through the air vent, but crash through and accidentally injure one of the guys playing in the band on the stage, so Brian has to play guitar and sing. Peter tries to convince Lois that they belong together but she stubbornly informs Peter that he had his chance and blew it, and therefore she loves Quagmire now.
Peter almost gives up but Brian notices Chris, Stewie, and Meg disappearing from a family picture, indicating that they have fallen off the plane of existence and tells Peter it is his last chance to do something that proves he loves Lois.
Peter then demonstrates his passion by punching Quagmire and kissing Lois, showing toughness and that he cares deeply for her and wins back her love. He asks her to marry him and she accepts.
The episode ends with things seemingly back to normal, with the exception of Roger from American Dad! Production[ edit ] "Meet the Quagmires" was the last episode to be directed by Dan Povenmire.
The episode was written by series regular and future showrunner Mark Hentemannand directed by Chris Robertson and series regular Dan Povenmirewho left the series after completing the episode, in order to create his own series for the Disney Channel entitled Phineas and Ferbwhich has since been nominated for three Emmy Awards. Cherry Chevapravatdumrong and Patrick Meighan worked as executive story editors. The episode's original premise was based on Cleveland 's divorce from his wife, Loretta, with Cleveland going on to become a hot bachelor in Quahog, causing Peter to become jealous, and desiring to become single again.
In the opening scene of the episode, Horace the bartender is suddenly knocked unconscious after falling off a ladder, causing Death to appear. After it is discovered that Horace is not actually dead, Death complains that he never likes to be too far from journalist Mike Wallace.
The Back to the Future trilogy is parodied and referenced throughout the episode, along with many other movies and famous people throughout the s.
Other cultural references include how after going back in time, Peter becomes excited about his new prospects in life, and states to Cleveland that he is going to "raise more hell than Hellraiser " from the horror film Hellraiser. It also depicts Pinhead as weak and ridiculous, stating that the worst he can do is unscrew a salt shaker and trick someone into using it, causing salt to come out all over their food.
It would have been fine on its own, but it seems as if the last few episodes have all had significant political themes that feel out of place. Regardless of what one's political views may be, it gets kind of tiring to hear obvious political non-jokes made every single week. It would have been different if they were actually witty, but the jokes just come across as angry political jabs, and nothing more.
Peter and Brian once again use Death's help to get back to the past and try and restore the future. This leads to some great Back to the Future references, with a hilarious segment where Brian sings a Rick Astley song. It's well done and conveys just enough nostalgia without going overboard. During the musical moment, the Giant Chicken shows up for a brief cameo. In the end, Peter manages to save his future by punching out Quagmire and convincing Lois that he's passionate for her.
Meet the Quagmires/References
This episode was well written overall, with a good mix of manatee jokes and relevant funny plot threads. It's a definite return to form for Family Guy, but as a season finale, one usually would expect a little more.
Hopefully in the next season we'll see fewer tired political jabs and more creative humor from the writers. This episode was definitely a step in the right direction.
