Night " by Kenny Loggins. Once Lois appears, she asks Peter if he would like to see the film Zapped! Pac-Manin addition to making out with actress Molly Ringwald. Returning to the present, Peter and Brian decide to watch television, and are shocked to discover that actor Chevy Chase is now the host of The Tonight Show.
The main plot of the episode, complete with the scene in which Peter and Brian are in the living room, with Brian explaining to Peter what happened using a chalk boardis a reference to the alternate universe scene in Back to the Future Part II. In the past once again, Peter suggests to Lois that they see the film Krull instead. In order to make everything right about the future, Peter and Brian decide to sneak into the prom through a vent.
While inside it, Peter recites a line from the action film Die Hard. The episode also acquired a 3. Love went on to state, "The show has lost a little of the luster that it once had, but that's no reason to count them out. There were enough bright spots to give hope for a return to that old form when season six comes around in the fall.
Peter is upset because he can't do that kind of stuff anymore because he has a family to support. After a pointless cutaway, the TV messes up.
The bartender tries to fix it, but falls off a ladder and Death shows up.
When the barkeep's discovered to have just been knocked out, another cutaway joke is made about Death not wanting to be away from Mike Wallace. Peter begs Death take him to back to when he was eighteen. Ol' Grimmy refuses, but when ESPN is just about to show a womens' pro sports thing, he changes his mind.
I don't get it. Oh, and Brian is brought along as well. I guess the writers were treating him as a Siamese twin. The trio winds up in and here, the fun begins. Everyone sees the nasally blob as an eighteen-year-old towel boy who works at a country club. He makes plans with a much younger Cleveland Brown, who in a few decades would get a terrible spin-off of his own before it was killed by the FOX curse.
Peter references Hellraiser, a movie that wouldn't come out for three more years; I guess it was done as a joke, but given the historical context I'm left scratching my head.
I'm beginning to think that these references were being tossed in for the sake of establishing that they're in the Eighties. Predictably, Peter turns her down. Brian's reaction to all this: Of course Peter's so stupid to remember who the American President was during that period for the sole purpose of a Back to the Future reference.
That little bit makes me want to bring up that MacFarlane had booked a flight on one of the planes Al Qaeda hijacked that morning and missed it because he got drunk the night before. He promised never to do a joke about that subject and proceeded to break it several times. Peter makes out with Molly Ringwald. Brian just so happens to bring up that she's the biggest star in the world right now and asks what she's doing at the bar. If you don't why know by now, you're an idiot. Death decides that they made enough 80's references for the time being and takes Peter and Brian back to We get a joke about fat women and Peter goes to bed.
The next morning, we learn that he's married to Molly Ringwald and Judd Nelson stays with them sometimes. It turns out that by not going out with Lois, Fatso altered the timeline and we get a joke about Tom Cruise running from "gay thoughts".
Am I the only one who finds it funny that a pro-gay activist like MacFarlane likes to think in terms of stereotypes? Only eight friggin' minutes in You have restored my mirth. Because this is a cartoon on FOX, of course we need to have embittered left-wing propaganda about how Al Gore would have killed Osama bin Laden hiding out in the audience of MADtv with his bare hands had he been elected in Nah, from what I understand, he'd be running around trying to warn the world about that danger with universal scientific consensus: He is cereal business!Come on Home - Family Guy Songs
Also, because George W. Bush was never elected we have flying cars that run on vegetable oil. Cue a Jetsons cutaway where George gets into a fight with Jane over her snatching his wallet.
The only was back to the past is through Death. Y'know, it's as if they're trying to tell us something. Get this show off the air!
It died a year ago! Upon hearing this, Brian the moonbat that he is begs Peter to stay in the new reality, however Peter's never heard of any of them and decides to try to set things right.
- Meet the Quagmires
When '84 Lois asks to go see Zapped! Geez, I know it was the middle of the decade, but wasn't home video a thing yet? He tries again and fails by cutting muffins.
He speaks to '84 Lois again and they make it a date. Then, '84 Cleveland shows up and talks Peter into having a night on the town with him. So they go out to night club and dance to "Axel F". Are we sure this isn't his personal porn? Gee, um, which decade is this?
This would be so much easier to pinpoint if they reminded us every three seconds instead of ten! Of course, Death has declared that enough is enough and will not give Fatso another do-over and we get a cutaway gag involving Joe Piscapo and weights. I didn't get it.
This gives Peter an idea Same song, same patrons. The joke abruptly ends and they go to the dance.
