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. 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. She also aludes to going to Kent State University when she says that, "...one time, the National Guard came and shot some of my friends."
