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.[
