Today I was watching Family Guy, and the episode was titled Regarding Carter. I found this program interesting, because when Lois' father, Carter Pewterschmidt, answered his front door to Lois, he arrived with a colourful parrot on his shoulder.





He told Lois not to make any sudden moves, because this would scare the parrot. Well, she moved, and this set feathers flying.




How do you feel about how parrots are depicted in movies and cartoons? Do you think cinema does them justice?

Did Lois kill the parrot? or did she shoot her father instead?

Lois was returning the gun that her father gave her as a birthday present. Carter Pewterschmidt ended up getting into an accident where he bumped his head, and changed his personality to a kinder, gentler man, and decided to give away his money instead of giving an inheritance to Lois and Peter, or to his wife. Carter and Lois were able to bond as father and daughter, and this was a joyful, memorable event.



But Carter's wife was not happy with this result, (she wanted the money) and finalized the show by shooting Carter with the gun.

So he ends up back in the hospital with a bandaged head (again) and reverts to his old miserly self.


And how does the parrot play into this? With Lois cradling her dad in her lap on the front steps after Carter's accident, the parrot flies up and then breaks the 4th wall with a close-up and saying to the audience "Come back for more on this story!" :wink2:
