    About Family Guy's Meg-bashing.

    Like This Thread!

    For those that are saying it's gotten worse or started in season four, let me shed a little light on that.

    Season 1



    I Never Met The Dead Man: Peter lies and blames knocking out TV on Meg.

    Chitty Chitty Death Bang: Peter: I'm telling you, just be the girl you think everyone else wants you to be.

    Season 2



    Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater: Staff: We'll do the best we can with Meg!
    Meg: Are you saying I'm ugly?
    Staff: It doesn't matter, dear. You're rich now!

    Holy Crap!: Francis Griffin: Megan! How was school?
    Meg: Good. Kevin walked me home.
    Francis Griffin: Kevin?
    Meg: He lives next door.
    Francis Griffin: He lives next door to a harlot!
    Meg: Grandpa, we were just holding hands.
    Francis Griffin: It'll be easy for him to take your hand when God strikes your heart with leprosy! He can take it right home with him!

    Da Boom!: Meg: It's just not fair! I finally get a date with Kevin, and gets vaporized!
    Chris: He's just using that as an excuse!

    Brian In Love: Meg: God! It smells gross!
    Brian: Well princess, I don't see anyone dabbing yours behind your ears!
    -----------------------------------
    Meg: Then, Brittany and Amber said, "Let's go to the mall." And I said, "Ok, I'll go to the mall." Then Amber wasn't gonna go, so I went to the mall. And you're not gonna believe it, they both showed up!
    Peter: Hold on Meg, I'm sorry but that is a really boring story.

    Love Thy Trophy: Connie: Hey, Meg, you want to come to lunch? You know what? There's no room in my car for your big, ugly purse.
    Mrs. Canner: Meg, let me tell you about popularity--
    Connie: Mrs. Canner, are you coming?
    Mrs. Canner: Bye!
    ---------------------------------
    Meg: Daddy, if you really loved me, you'd buy me a Prada bag!
    Peter: I can't say no to you honey. How much are they, like ten dollars?
    Meg: More like a eleven hundred dollars.
    Peter: Ha ha! You wish I loved you that much!

    Death Is A *****: Peter: Listen, I've had a good life. You can always be proud of your father and all of his accomplishments.
    Meg: What accomplishments?
    Peter: Go to your room.
    ---------------------------------
    Peter: I guess this is goodbye. Meg, your the man of the family now. Be strong.
    ---------------------------------
    Meg: I got a B-plus in health. Is there anything I can do?
    Death: Why don't you boil some water and rip up some sheets there, Einstein?
    ---------------------------------
    Meg: I brought you a magazine.
    Death: Glamour. Great. I can learn how to please my man. Go get me an entertainment weekly.
    ---------------------------------
    Meg: You could kill all the girls that are prettier than me.
    Death: Well that would just leave England.

    The King Is Dead: Meg: Can I be in the show mom?
    Stewie: Yes, you can be the dumpy teenager who stays backstage and cries because nobody finds her attractive.

    If I'm Dyin', I'm Lyin': Meg: Dad! Marcy Gibbons just called! She heard that Chris is dying!
    Peter: Ha ha! You're brother's ok! That was just a little white lie we came up with to save a TV show!
    Meg: So he's not going to die?
    Peter: No. Ha ha, boy, your face was priceless when you thought he was. *Fakes crying.*
    ---------------------------------
    Brian: Your first born son!
    Peter: Meg!

    A Picture Is Worth 1000 Bucks: Peter: I have no son! Except Stewie... and Meg!
    ---------------------------------
    The entire song Peter sings about making Meg famous.
    ---------------------------------
    Meg: And I'm sorry I have no talent...
    Peter: That's ok, kids.

    15 Minutes Of Shame: Meg: How could you embarrass me like that? Nobody better pull this at my slumber party tonight!
    Lois: Don't worry honey, you and your friends will have a great time.
    Stewie: Yes, how delightful it will be. A pubescent herd of gabby wretches prattling on about boys and music and jellybeans and stickers.
    Chris: We better stop by the hospital so I can get my cootie shot!
    ---------------------------------
    The entire slumber party sequence with Peter embarrassing Meg, Lois trying to get in on their games, Chris jerking off to them, Stewie talking to the girls, and God attempting to kill Meg.
    ---------------------------------
    Peter: I can't believe you'd do this to us. Maybe now I won't give you the antidote.
    Meg: To what?
    Peter: To the poison you just drank! Ha ha ha!
    ---------------------------------
    Lois: We can't do the show without Meg!
    Jay Mohr: Why not? Our research shows she's the least popular character on the show.
    ---------------------------------
    Brian: Meg Griffin's plane was shot down over the Sea Of Japan. It spun in. There were no survivors.
    ---------------------------------
    Meg Actress: I had the worst day! First I didn't make cheerleader because I'm so plain! And I still don't have a date for Friday night, as usual! I'm going to write in my journal about how I'll never grow big, full breasts like these!
    ---------------------------------
    Peter: Hey honey, I'm sorry we missed your ball game.
    Meg: What?
    Peter: Here's an ice cream.

    Let's Go To The Hop: Brian: Yeah, he's tweaked.
    Chris: Am not! Maybe it's Meg's toad!
    Lois: Don't try to pawn this off on your sister! She's a good girl!
    Chris: Well what about the time she strangled our other sister?
    Lois: Now, Chris, we told you, that was just a very bad dream.
    Chris: But I remember it so--
    Lois and Peter: IT WAS A DREAM!
    --------------------------------
    Connie: I guess Miss "Wears-A-Hat" is gonna narc on us.
    --------------------------------
    Mr. Berler: Hello, Megan. Wait a minute, you're not part of the popular clique. You run along and play alone somewhere. Shame you all for getting her hopes up like that!
    --------------------------------
    Connie: I'll never touch another toad again. None of us will.
    Meg: I know I won't!
    Connie: You never did it in the first place! God, you're such a wannabe loser!
    --------------------------------
    The whole plot of Peter ditching Meg for the popular girl.

    He's Too Sexy For His Fat: Meg: You look wicked skinny. I'm like, jealous!
    Chris: Thanks Meg. I'm jealous of your mustache!
    Meg: I don't have a mustache! Do I?
    Lois: Oh, honey. It's fine. It makes you look distinguished.

    The Story On Page 1: Dean Of Admissions: "Meg"? That's not very impressive. I mean, it's just three letters. It's hardly a name at all!
    ---------------------------------
    Meg: I have no future! I'm just gonna wait in my room until I'm dead!
    Stewie: I'll be in shortly...
    ---------------------------------
    The cut-away with Meg carrying a signs in bum fights.
    ---------------------------------
    Meg receiving a bomb from Mayor West ala Daffy Duck.
    ---------------------------------
    Peter: Don't cry sweetheart! I'll make it up to you! You remember that pony you wanted when you were six? Well I bought him and I've been saving him for a time like this! Surprise! *Opens closet to reveal a pony skeleton.* Oh... Oh god. That's right, ponies like food, don't they?

    Wasted Talent: Lois: Come on Meg. The competition is this Sunday and you're not even close to ready.
    Meg: Maybe if you loosened my chains?
    Lois: We tried that, remember honey? You can't be trusted.
    ---------------------------------
    *Peter walks in and finds Meg chained to the piano.*
    Lois: Not now Peter, Meg and I are having a little girl time.
    Meg: Help me!
    Lois: Go on! No boys allowed!

    Fore Father: Meg: Mom, I can't clean. I've got stuff to do.
    Lois: Meg, we all know you don't have any stuff to do.
    --------------------------------
    Lois: Look Meg, it's your little baby booties. And your little bronze hat. And your tail.
    Meg: My what?
    Lois: Nothing!

    Brian: Here's a hint... PUT DOWN THE FORK! FACE!
    ---------------------------------
    Meg: "Brian, I know I don't speak up much and it's really hard for me to talk about my feelings but--"
    Dr. Kaplan: Why don't we start with someone more interesting?

    Mr. Griffin Goes To Washington: Meg: Hi, can I help you?
    Ugly Girl: Some company hired me to stand next to you so you'd look better by comparison.
    Meg: That's ridiculous, I don't--
    Boy: Meg, did you get less ugly?
    Meg: Yeah!
    ---------------------------------
    Brian: Damn it! Do I have to listen to this drivel 24 hours a day? *Points at Meg.* But hey, I guess anything's better than looking at your smelly face!

    And The Wiener Is...: Connie: What do you want, Meg?
    Meg: I'm here for cheerleading!
    Connie: Peter Rabbit would be wise to stay out of Mr. McGregor's garden. Why don't you try the flag girl squad? *Points at a bunch of ugly girls.*
    --------------------------------
    Meg: I'm on the flag girl squad!
    Brian: So, you're a flag girl. That's great.
    Stewie: Yes. Now you can be somewhere else when the boys don't call!
    *Stewie and Brian laugh.*
    Meg: We perform at all the football games! I'm practically a cheerleader!
    Lois: Meg, that's wonderful. Isn't that wonderful, Peter?
    Peter: Yeah, way to go Stewie.
    --------------------------------
    Meg: Hey guys! Are we all ready to cheer at the game tonight?
    Connie: We? Oh, you made flag girl?
    Meg: Yeah! So this morning, my mom was all "Meg, don't forget your lunch." And I'm like "Mom, I'm a flag girl now, I'm not gonna forget my lunch." And she's all like "Meg, don't forget your half-time routine at the game." Moms! Hey, maybe we could all, like, hang out after the game! Go team!
    Girl: God, uncool people are like animals.
    --------------------------------
    The kids throwing meat on Meg.
    --------------------------------
    Stewie: Megan, you must try the brisket. Allow me to serve it in the manner to which you're accustomed! *Flings the meat at her with his fork.*
    --------------------------------
    Lois: Did you forget how the neighbor kids chased you and tried to sprinkle you with Fixin's?
    --------------------------------

    Meg: Then tell Chris to quit drawing me with a pig's body!
    Chris: Don't censor me!
    --------------------------------
    Brian: What about the writing-angry-letters-and-not-sending-them exercise?
    Peter: I wasn't supposed to send those?
    Meg: Look, I got a letter from dad! "Dear Meg, for the first four years of your life, I thought you were a housecat." DAD!

    Tom Tucker: I'm sorry, but there's a handsome man in my spoon. You'll have to come back later.
    --------------------------------
    Meg: I never even got the chance to be some drunk college guy's last resort!
    --------------------------------

    Meg: I'm allergic to peanuts! You don't know anything about me!
    Peter: Who was that guy?
    --------------------------------
    Meg: It's official. Neil Goldman is unkissable. Hear that Neil? I don't like you! And I never will! Back to you, Tom.

    Lois: Hi! What are you doing here?
    Meg: What am I doing here? I've been waiting out here for hours!
    Lois: What?
    Meg: You were supposed to pop inside and find someone who looked enough like me so I could use their ID. And then you were supposed to come out and give me the ID so I could get inside.
    Lois: What?
    Meg: God, it's like talking to a three year old!
    Lois: You know what? You need to learn how to loosen up a little, toots.
    Meg: I get the feeling you're loose enough for us both.

    Meg: Nothing.
    Lois: That's right nothing! Don't you sass me!

    FBI Agent: He's not here.
    Killer: Where is he?
    FBI Agent: I can't release that information.
    Killer: Did I say Chris? I meant Chris's sister.
    FBI Agent: Oh, if it's for Meg, that's a whole other story. Here's her address.

    Screwed The Pooch: Peter: And Meg's real father's name is--

    Hi Meg.
    *Meg glares at her parents and runs upstairs.*

    Most of those don't count, especially the line from "Chitty Chitty Deathbang". As a matter of fact, most of those from (Production)Season 1-2 are actually pretty funny. Personally I think it started in (Production)Season 3. Incase you haven't noticed in Season 1-2 nothing big save for verbal complaints & insults from characters. It wasn't until the gag in which Peter's lance picks up Meg by her earring that it truly started.

    ^That's not funny, the deleted bit with Peter playing with his man-boobs was way funnier than that crap ever dreams to be.

    I just don't like the Meg bashing from Season 4. The ones from season 1-3 were funny.

    Look the writters said flat out they don't know how to write for teenage girls which is why they choose to do this instead. They've practically ran out of ideas for her and find this to be easier than asking any woman in the room with life experiences. And if you want a shorter version:

    -Season 1 had Meg look better and appreciated in the end.

    -Season 2 had those same moments, but there were still lessons to be learned for her and the family. Wasted Talent wasn't really Meg bashing as much as it was Lois depending on her to win to competetion. So I don't see that as negetive.

    -Season 3 slowly went down that course, but they were still funny and not really that negative, but the stupidity of others not understanding what she was talking about.

    Currently episodes like Peterotica are perfect examples of poking fun at her, but making it still funny. Then again that weed joke would've been funny no matter who that was done to.

    Simply put, they're just doing a less funny job of it now. They're doing it for the sake of doing it, which is why it seems worse, because there's no payoff. I'm not in the camp that thinks it's "reprehensible" or something, but I do think it's simply bad comedy.

    Well I'm mostly taking to task people who say it's new to season four.

    I agree, it wasn't as harsh in the first two seasons but putting season three's stuff as not being harsh, then I don't know what the hell they think is. The diary thing was harsher than some season four stuff. Speaking of that, I thought that was one of the funniest things from that episode, Don.

    And I agree that some of it hasn't been very good. Like the watermelon thing from "I Take Thee, Quagmire" but some of it has just been fantastic like the pot gag from "Peterotica" and I really have no problem with it like some people do. Some people seem to see it as somehow evil but they need to realise that it's always happened and it's just a cartoon character anyway.

    We're not thinking in terms of realism. We're looking at the structure of the joke and why we should laugh or feel what the other characters feel. If Peter comes off as a jerk and does something unsuspected which isn't funny, do I have to laugh at what the writers were intending? No because you did a terrible job of presenting this to the auidence.

    The only people who think that's funny are usually the simple minded people I see in college who laugh at every little thing. ("lol Chuck Norris Snakes on a Plane lol") Then when you come up with an elaborate or clever joke, everyone rolls off it like nobody heard you. That's how FG dominates this audience by knowing they don't give a damn. They don't have to try to make stories about teenage girls because only people like me who want to get into the similar field will nitpick. Right here is a great reason why I compare FG to AD all of the time because the dialogue in AD is really clever and memorable like Mission Hill or Venture Brothers. Well memorable to me compared to the daily Quagmire joke.

    This is not only exactly how I've felt about FG, but how it is at my college (Susquehanna). I'm glad to know I'm not the only one out there.

    As for the Meg bashing... I encountered a LOT of things they do to her both from family and school POVs, so I don't it funny AT ALL.

    The only people who think that's funny are usually the simple minded people I see in college who laugh at every little thing. ("lol Chuck Norris Snakes on a Plane lol") Then when you come up with an elaborate or clever joke, everyone rolls off it like nobody heard you. That's how FG dominates this audience by knowing they don't give a damn. They don't have to try to make stories about teenage girls because only people like me who want to get into the similar field will nitpick. Right here is a great reason why I compare FG to AD all of the time because the dialogue in AD is really clever and memorable like Mission Hill or Venture Brothers. Well memorable to me compared to the daily Quagmire joke.
    If you're stereotyping me into that catagory, don't. I consider myself to be very intelligent and Family Guy, to me, is a stupidly funny diversion. Outside of Family Guy, South Park, Adult Swim, and other cartoons, I frequently watch CNN, MSNBC, independent media, C-SPAN, and on the less serious comedic side of things, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Fox News. Oh look, I made a funny at Fox News's expense. Anyhow, I don't consider myself some stupid kid that sits around watching Family Guy and laughing at everything they do. I, instead, watch it because it's a stupid humor to take a break from more intelligent pursuits.

    I never sterotyped you. I just hate it when people (like the majority of the auidence) don't think twice about what they just saw. There are just some people out there who mentally will laugh at every little thing. And when someone tries to get complex about it, their brain shuts off.

    If I did put you under this catergory, then we wouldn't be having this fun debate about the show and you'd ignore places like TZ all together. Remember we don't make up the majority of the fans, but we voice the best opinions of the fans for the creators.

    not that I don't agree that she gets made fun of the most but almost all of the instances of bashing you listed are plot related unlike most of the season 4 stuff

    Heh, damn right. I really wish they kept in that scene.

    Anyway, my main problem about Meg constatly because abused and such is because she doesn't really deserve it. Bart from the Simpsons deserves to get choked by Homer, because he's a little brat who always gets into crap. Kenny from South Park [sort of] desearves to be killed because he's sick and perverted (enspecially for his age).

    I know it's been going on since season 1, but, as eveyone is saying, it got worse in season 3.

    The Meg-bashing has become another one of those "You like it until it snowballs" kind of things, like the Vaudeville Guy.* Maybe they're snowballing the gag to kill off Meg (AKA Child Protective services?) in Season 5 (or 4.62, whichever we're on now).




    *I still like Vaudeville guy...

    I don't think the Meg bashing is evil, but a lot of Meg bashing jokes from season 4 and now just aren't funny and they seem to rely on it too much. But that's just my opinion.

    Definitely agree that they do it these days just for the sake of doing it.

    To me, the Meg-bashing reminds me of Welcome to the Dollhouse*, which is NOT the frame of mind I want to be in when I feel like laughing.

    * - Seriously, this is an emotional snuff film. Avoid it at all costs.
    I feel that a big problem with today's society is that we don't listen to our fellow man -- especially when I'm talking.

    Most of the Meg bashing stuff wasn't bad in seasons 1-3...it got alot worse when the show came back...I just don't think it's funny in the newer episodes,because she doesn't really do anything to deserve the abuse(I personally like it when she yells at Peter for whatever horrible thing he's done to her...)...

    Some of the quotes you brought up are indeed some Meg bashing examples from earlier seasons, but...
    Quote Originally Posted by The Myst

    Francis Griffin: Kevin?
    Meg: He lives next door.
    Francis Griffin: He lives next door to a harlot!
    Meg: Grandpa, we were just holding hands.
    Francis Griffin: It'll be easy for him to take your hand when God strikes your heart with leprosy! He can take it right home with him!
    Eh... that one is more making fun of how uptight and traditional Francis is.
    Brian In Love: Meg: God! It smells gross!
    Brian: Well princess, I don't see anyone dabbing yours behind your ears!
    Not really a Meg-specific jab- I don't think anybody's urine would smell good.
    Meg: Daddy, if you really loved me, you'd buy me a Prada bag!
    Peter: I can't say no to you honey. How much are they, like ten dollars?
    Meg: More like a eleven hundred dollars.
    Peter: Ha ha! You wish I loved you that much!
    I don't think many fathers would want to pay upwards of $1,100 for a purse unless they were absolutely loaded. This doesn't seem like a Meg-specific jab.
    Death Is A *****: Peter: Listen, I've had a good life. You can always be proud of your father and all of his accomplishments.
    Meg: What accomplishments?
    Peter: Go to your room.
    Meg calling Peter on the fact that he has no accomplishments, not unwarranted Meg abuse.
    Meg: Mom!
    Lois: Hi! What are you doing here?
    Meg: What am I doing here? I've been waiting out here for hours!
    Lois: What?
    Meg: You were supposed to pop inside and find someone who looked enough like me so I could use their ID. And then you were supposed to come out and give me the ID so I could get inside.
    Lois: What?
    Meg: God, it's like talking to a three year old!
    Lois: You know what? You need to learn how to loosen up a little, toots.
    Meg: I get the feeling you're loose enough for us both.
    Lois: What?
    Meg: Nothing.
    Lois: That's right nothing! Don't you sass me!
    Shouldn't really count because Lois is drunk.
    Killer: Telegram for Chris Griffin.
    FBI Agent: He's not here.
    Killer: Where is he?
    FBI Agent: I can't release that information.
    Killer: Did I say Chris? I meant Chris's sister.
    FBI Agent: Oh, if it's for Meg, that's a whole other story. Here's her address.
    More a joke on the fact that the FBI guys are so clueless that they think giving out the address where Meg lives is safe, despite the fact that she and Chris are siblings.

    Yeah but Brian is still rude to Meg for no called for reason, except that it's his.

    It wasn't until the "You wish I loved you that much!" line.

    I'll give you that one too.

    And that one.

    And that one. But many of my points still stand.

    Every series has it's own patsy

    The Simpsons have Flanders, Aqua Teens have Carl, Billy and Mandy have Irwin, and even Mario Bros. have Luigi to pile abuse on.

    Why should Meg's abuse be treated any differently
