Last night’s episode of Family Guy made the three-week break worth the wait. Check out our highlight reel of the episode below.

After a few weeks off the air, Family Guy returned from its’ break with an amazingly hilarious episode to kick off the month of May—mind you there are still a few days left. There were tons of noteworthy moments and plenty of reasons to tune in, though the shenanigans got a bit out of hand. A few scenes, in particular, ended with the most random twists that didn’t seem to go anywhere.

Apart from the outrageous segments, “Throw It Away” had more than a few highlights to speak of. The episode even featured a cameo from a character on another of Fox’s animated series. For more, check out our highlight reel below:

  • Futurama’s Bender drops by

For us, the best moment from last night’s Family Guy had to be the Bender cameo. For anyone who doesn’t know, he’s a Futurama character.

During Lois’ tirade of shedding everything from her house, she gets to Stewie’s room, and the first thing she pulls out is his Time Machine. Lois struggles to pull the device down the stairs and it bounces on each step, causing a rift in reality to take place. What ensues are glimpses at the Griffins during different periods of history.

The Griffin family—minus Peter—don’t venture into the past—they just morph into versions of themselves as they’d be seen in other eras of history. They go through a few different ones but the change that stands out the most was the future version of the Griffins. The reason is that Brian turns into Bender from Futurama. Lois eventually bounces the Time Machine one last time to set them right but the reference to one of Fox’s older animated series definitely made this episode memorable.

  • Toy Story duo are in the attic

Since there’s no telling what’s stored in the Griffins’ attic, it didn’t surprise us to see Woody and Buzz sitting on one of the shelves in Peter’s corner. He’s getting rid of everything like Lois told him to but hesitates when the time comes for him to throw them away.

Peter is prepared to rid himself of the dolls “because they aren’t real” but he secretly believes they are. He turns around and then does a double-take just in case Woody and Buzz are alive. Peter does multiple turns but to no avail. Once he’s actually given up, the toys get up and fly out of the room. Peter doesn’t notice a thing and then turns to find them gone.

The reference itself might seem irrelevant but people forget that Toy Story 4 premieres next month. Toy Story is a Disney owned property but Fox/Disney just underwent a major merger of companies, making this tie-in for Toy Story 4 a decent cross-promotion between the studios. Who knows, there might be more Disney references in future episodes of Family Guy, The Simpsons, and Bob’s Burgers.

  • Surfing Bird LIVES!

Despite taking a beating Office Space-style, Peter Griffin’s copy of Surfin Bird by the Trashmen survived Brian and Stewie’s assault. Peter somehow found the record and superglued it back together. The end result isn’t pleasant but Peter plays the song anyway.

At the same time, Peter also manages to throw in a reference to Jeff Goldblum’s most iconic line from Jurassic Park. But instead of “Life…uhh, finds a way”, Peter says “Surfin Bird…uhh, finds a way”. This quote has been used various times in pop-culture, though Peter referencing both the movie that it originates from and an old episode of Family Guy at the same time makes a bigger impression on us.

  • The Pewterschmidts are in charge

The last noteworthy moment had to be Peter’s reveal of where his finances come from. Most of us assumed that Peter made enough money from his job at the brewery and the other gigs he’s taken over the years, but as it turns out, he was taking money from the Pewterschmidts.

Peter reveals that Babs and Carter Pewterschmidt had been paying his mortgage payments. In most households, a mortgage is the largest expense, so the Pewterschmidts paying for the Griffins’ home means Peter can’t provide for his family. If he’s taking money for the mortgage, Peter is probably only making enough money to stay afloat. Of course, this doesn’t surprise us considering all the booze and crazy adventures he goes through on a regular basis.
