|“||Lois: Look, the bottom line here Meg, is that you're just taking your own problems out on everyone else. Meg: Oh, my problems? Oh, I see. Is this coming from my role-model mother? The shoplifter, the drug addict, the pornstar, the whore who let Gene Simmons and Bill Clinton go to town on her? Lois: [scoffs] So what? A...all those things are behind me now. I'm a better person now because of those experiences. Meg: Are you? Are you a better person? Lois: What's your point, Meg? Meg: My point is that with all the irresponsible, reckless, idiotic behavior in your past, that somehow, heh, somehow you have the nerve, the arrogance to consistently and ruthlessly point out my shortcomings. Lois: Alright, well fine! Okay, I'm not the perfect mother; who is? Meg: Not only are you not the perfect mother, you're the farthest thing from! From the moment you gave birth to me, I had to trust you. I had no choice. I needed you to protect me from the world to, to be my guide, to help me navigate the difficult, confusing, and vulnerable journey to becoming a person. You have done NONE of those things! You're my mother and you took a child's trust and smashed it into bits in a seventeen-year long mission to destroy something that you killed a long time ago! And honestly, when I turn eighteen, I...I don't know that I ever want to see you again! Lois cries. Stewie[looking at his phone]: Oh, wow, everybody's already Twitting "Stewie Just Said That". Lois: Ugh, you're right. You're right, I'm a terrible mother! I'm so sorry. I'm so, so sorry, Meg! Can you, ever forgive me? Oh, God! [Lois sits down in a chair crying as Peter whispers something in Meg's ear] Meg: And you never let dad stir the paint anymore...whatever that means. Peter: I didn't know you knew that, Meg, but I'm glad you brought it up.||„|
