#1 Death Has a Shadow: Aired Sunday, January 31, 1999
Peter gets fired after a raucous stag party, and receives an exorbitant amount of money from the welfare department.
Peter crashes into a satellite dish, knocking out the city's TV, and blames it on Meg. However, Peter does rediscover the rest of life when he can no longer sit in front of the boob-tube all day. Stewie schemes to eradicate broccoli.
Peter punches out a pregant woman and is under house arrest. He builds a bar in the basement so that his friends will hang out with him, but it turns into a singing venue for Lois. Stewie builds a time machine to move time forward and alleviate his teething pain, but ends up making time go backwards instead to erase the fact that his blueprints for the device were seen by the entire bar.
The whole family takes a trip to New York to get Chris back in the Scouts when he gets kicked out. On the way, they get lost and stop at a Native American casino. Lois discovers an addiction to video poker, and bets away the family car. Peter has to go on a vision quest to prove he is Native American to get the family car back.
Peter enters Brian in a dog show for some extra money, and although Brian originally agrees to perform, once he realizes that he'll have to beg for a treat he decides it's all too humiliating. After not receiving the respect he feels he deserves at home, Brian takes off, returning to the streets where Peter originally found him, and gets arrested and sentenced to death. It's up to Peter to save him, and he does so by bribing the city council.
