In this lil game of ours, it is easy to get lost and so focused into collecting items or unlocking characters that we tend to forget the lil things that make the game what it is. Like Where the HELL did these items come from and why are they in our games?
Well I am here to do just that for you. Let’s take a look at the Family Guy Series and find out just Where The HELL Did That Come From?
In this post, I will be covering the Origin of the Manger/ Nativity Scene. Is Lois really the Virgin Mary? Just how “wise” is Quagmire? Who gave Bruce his wings? Let’s take a look at the TV Episodes to find out just where.
Season 11, Episode 9: Jesus Mary and Joseph
As the Griffin’s are gathered round the tree hanging ornaments, Meg reflects on the one she is hanging up with the Nativity Scene on it. This of course launches Peter into a tale of a story that goes back hundreds of years. YAH!! STAR WARS!!! No??! D’OH!!
So he begins the story that caused millions and millions of deaths. Joseph (Peter) was hanging with his friend Robbie when noticed Mary (Lois) getting water out of the well. They eventually plan on going on a date.
After several dates Joseph starts to get annoyed and complains to Mary that they need to do something. It has been a long time, but she stays strong and says she feels there is a reason she has to wait. Good thing she has Consuela as a coach teaching her to say, “Noooo nooooo nooooooooo”.
Mary later comes by Joseph’s work place and asks him to come by so she can tell him something important. They agree to meet at that time of the day the sun goes away and everyone panics it will never return. Joseph arrives and they discuss going to see Cher play in Bethlehem. Mary announces that she is pregnant by God. Not Kevin God from South Nazareth. She tells him how she was visited by and Angel (Bruce) and was told that God has chosen her to have his baby.
Later we see Joseph and a very pregnant Mary being carried by Donkey Meg on their way to Bethlehem. Meanwhile three Wise Men (Cleveland, Quagmire, and Joe) receive a dove message that the King of Kings will be born in Bethlehem and they should go pay tribute. They decide to make the journey. Somewhere along the way they run out of water, so they make a stop at King Herod’s Palace (Carter). They explain to him they are going to see the King of Kings. King Herod does not seem very happy, so he decides he should kill the baby…so Jodie Foster will love him.
Back in Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph try to find a place to stay. The Innkeeper (Mort) tells them there is just no rooms. Cher is in town so everything is booked. Joseph and Mary beg him. He tells them both to leave or he will call IXII. In the midst of it all, Mary’s water breaks. She begs him again that there has to be somewhere they can go. He points out there is a Manger out back they can stay in. So they take it. (While in the background Cher opens her concert with “Believe”.)
Mary is excited she is finally going to have the baby. All those years of fighting off her Father’s advances are finally going to pay off. Joseph and her start to discuss names they can call him. Like Barney or Tristan. Just then Angel Bruce shows up telling them thems names is no good. They should give him a list and he will see what God thinks.
Back up in Heaven, God hates every last name. He is annoyed at them all. Angel Bruce tells him to relax, he will go get him some “Wine & Cheezus”. (And that, according to what Peter tells the family, is why you can eat as much Mozzarella in church as you want.)
Cut back to the 3 Wise Men traveling through the desert. They are arguing that Wise Men Joe is not sure where they are going. He points out he is following a star, that Cleveland points out has blinking lights…just like a plane. They’ve been following a plane. They do eventually make it there in time and offer their gifts of Frankincense, Muir, and ….a breast pump….guy.
Baby Jesus (Stewie) is born. The Drummer Boy (Chris) shows up with no gift. Joseph tells him to hand over his drum. Which Joseph starts to play while Doc lays the baby in his little straw Manger (just like the one Jesus comes with in our game). While Baby Jesus is explaining how he plans on getting fit over the next few years, King Herod and his men charge the scene. Baby Jesus turns his bed into a Flying Manger, complete with lazer guns to attack King Herod and his men. “Pew pew pew pew pew pew pew”.
And that is the story of Jesus…as told by Peter Griffin. Lol.
There you have it. A silly episode that brought a few items into our silly lil game too. What do you think of the Nativity Scene? Have you noticed all the different Characters inside? Want Angel Bruce? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
