Spies Reminiscent of Us

Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase move to Quahog.

Season 8 : Ep. 3|21:53

Christmas in Quahog

In "A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas", she has a nervous breakdown when just about everything goes wrong, throws a destructive tantrum, and is subdued with a tranquilizer shot by a police sniper. Lois explains her role as a mother and homemaker by saying that feminism is about choice, that she chose not to have a job, and that she should not be stereotyped as a housewife. In the episode "It Takes a Village Idiot, and I Married One", she gets into an argument with Mayor Adam West, threatens to run against him for mayor of Quahog, and wins the election. However, she eventually quits after discovering the difficulty of ignoring special interests and maintaining her integrity while in politics.[


Lois's morals can seem questionable at times. Lois went through a brief period of kleptomania in the episode "Breaking Out Is Hard to Do", for which she went to prison. She also showed a gambling addiction when the family went to an Indian casino in "The Son Also Draws" during the first season. Various episodes have hinted that Lois is a drug user, but this is shown most clearly in "Deep Throats". She revealed that she smoked marijuana when she was pregnant with Stewie, a claim backed-up by series creator Seth MacFarlane on a DVD commentary. Also, when asked by Peter where she got a tattoo on her lower back, she replied, 'I don't know Peter, meth is a hell of a drug' (Prick Up Your Ears). She also hints that she engaged in similar activities when a younger Meg was around. When Meg is thought to have become pregnant, Lois tells her to "smoke and drink a lot" (when Meg doesn't want to have an abortion, which Lois hinted at beforehand) She also mentions, "but don't start then chicken out half way or you end up with Chris," which implies she smoked and consumed alcohol while pregnant with Chris.

Lois and Stewie [again].

Lois Griffin: Come on Stewie, don't be afraid. It's just water, it's not gonna bite.
Stewie Griffin: Shut up! I know it's not going to bite, stupid! What a stupid thing to say. You drown in it you moron! It doesn't have to bite you!

Samurai Griffins

Stewie and Brian visit an alternate reality where the Griffins are a Samurai family.

(s.8 : ep.1)

Lois and Stewie

Lois: Oh, I haven't been on a college campus in years. Everything seems so different.
Stewie: Really? Perhaps if you laid on your back with your ankles behind your ears that would ring a few bells.

More About Lois

Lois has a younger sister, Carol, who has had nine husbands, at least eight of whom have left her, and had a boy by her eighth husband. Lois also has an older brother, Patrick, whom she discovers for the first time in "The Fat Guy Strangler". Lois took Patrick out of the asylum in which he was interned, refusing to believe that he was a serial killer until Brian confronted her with evidence.[12][13][14] Lois's discovers in the episode "Family Goy" that her mother is a Holocaust survivor, thus making Lois and her children Jewish by heritage.

Lois in Family Guy

Family Guy uses a floating timeline in which the characters do not age, and as such the show is always assumed to be set in the current year. In several episodes, events have been linked to specific times, though sometimes this timeline has been contradicted in subsequent episodes. Lois Griffin is the wife of Peter and is the mother of Meg, Chris and Stewie.[1][2][3] Lois was born into the wealthy Pewterschmidt family from Newport, Rhode Island. Peter Griffin, her husband, was a towel boy at the family country club; Lois eventually fell in love with him, due to his low-class, easy-going manner, which she found more appealing than the stuffy, uptight suitors in her social circle. Lois was crowned Miss Teen Rhode Island, and wished to pursue a career in modeling. However her father thought that was beneath the dignity of the family.[4][5][6] She also aludes to going to Kent State University when she says that, " time, the National Guard came and shot some of my friends."
