After a father-son camping trip, Peter realizes how irresponsible Chris is after raccoons steal their food and their car. Back at home, Peter gets Chris a job at the local golf course to try and teach him to be more responsible. Chris is content to
just pick up golf balls, until he discovers that Peter has entered the father-son golf tournament, with Cleveland Jr.!
Discouraged that Peter is focusing all his attention on Cleveland Jr., Chris rebels by hanging out with Quagmire at strip clubs. Ultimately, Cleveland Jr. abandons Peter who recruits Chris at the last minute. However, when they lose, Peter must deal with an angry group of gamblers who put money on Cleveland Jr. Despite all the recent heartache, Chris gives his dad his first paycheck in order to save his butt!
Hey, Quagmire, you up for some campin'?
I used it to make the fort from F Troop.
Bang! I'm Daniel Boone.
I'm a man. I'm a big man.

- No. He's an idiot.
- I'm not here to impress you. Am I, Dad?
- Did I say you could rest yet?
If you turn the light on,
they slam him into the fridge.
You remember that short-lived sitcom Fish?
Oh, my God! My fish is gone!
Chris, you are responsible for
guarding the camp while we fish.
Hold me for what?
Look, Stewie. Look at the dancin' kitty.
and somewhere, Scott Baio
is ploughin' a woman he doesn't love.
Yeah. All we caught was a tyre, a boot,
a tin can and this book of clichés.
"And then there's a guy. Let's get him
in trouble with his dad! Ha ha ha!"
I'll teach the boy. Come, my son.
I'll show you the ways of the herd...
Well, you always do the skull gag

Then I tried teachin' him

Hey, you that Griffin boy's father?

Hey, this kid here
just knocked the ball 300 yards.
Sometimes I wonder if he's got the epilepsy.
You and the robot go out into the wilderness
and take this mincing paedophile with you.
Huh? You'll see. I'm gonna turn this kid
into the greatest golfer ever.
I'd say it's some kind of mind-control serum.
Like when you were three,
and you ate those adult brownies
It's not small, no no no
Look, here's your first week's pay.
Package for Glen Quagmire.
- Hey, what's wrong, kid?
- My dad doesn't care about me any more.
Well, there's your problem.
Jobs are for suckers.
what does "hic-a-doo-La" mean?
- You got it.
- Would you hate me if I called you Webster?
This is the perfect way to show what a great
father figure I've been to Cleveland Junior.

After an interview at Brown University, Meg realizes she needs more extra-curricular activities to gain entrance to this prestigious school. She joins every club and even tries cheerleading, but fails miserably at them all. Finally, she decides to
join the school newspaper.
Her journalism career goes nowhere, until Peter fabricates a story regarding actor Luke Perry. Peter writes a gossipy article, but uses Meg's byline. When the article is published it creates a sensation, because Peter claimed Luke Perry was gay. Meg and Peter soon become embroiled in a headline-grabbing lawsuit when Luke sues them for defamation of character.
Blast! This isn't the first time
I've been thwarted by my small stature.
It can enslave the human race.
Come on. It's solid titanium.
I'm tired of being small.
I'm not sure you're Brown material.
Don't you have any extracurricular activities?

The town zoning laws won't allow Peter to build a pool in his yard. When he tries to get a permit, he discovers that his property is actually not part of Quahog, and therefore not part of the United States. Armed with this new information, Peter
makes his land his own country, calling it Petoria. When Peter gets no respect in the United Nation, he decides to invade Joe's pool, which brings the U.S. Army to his border. The Griffins can only survive so long without water, electricity, heat, or access to the United States, and finally, Lois and the kids leave President Peter, along with Brian, to his third-world country. Peter finally repatriates only a week after seceding.
Did you incur
any medical expenses this year?
OK. Here goes.
- You're not entitled to a refund.

Due to Brian's embarrassing flea problem, the Griffin's move into a hotel while the house if fumigated. Lois and Peter soon discover that Chris has been skipping gym class because he's self-conscious about his body. Peter tries to talk Chris into
getting liposuction, while Lois starts preparing him special low fat meals. Stewie starts taunting Chris by eating everything in sight, and starts packing on the baby fat.
Even though Chris isn't up for surgery, Peter decides to go for it. The new, svelte Peter has Lois all hot and bothered. Peter loves the results of his lipo and decides to have some work done on his face. The new, handsome Peter starts getting all sorts of special treatment: at the gym, at the grocery store, even from total strangers. Lois doesn't like the new Peter's attitude, especially when he joins "The Beautiful People's Club." Karma catches up to Peter while he's on his way to the club. Unable to take his eyes off himself, Peter plunges his car over a cliff. The nasty fall - and subsequent crash-landing into a large vat of lard - leaves him horribly disfigured (ie: back to normal).
Oh, come on. He'll call back.
