  • Road to the North Pole

    Disappointed with the Mall Santa, Stewie and Brian decide to go up to the North Pole to teach Santa a lesson, only to face a shocking revelation.

    Memorable Quotes:

    Santa Claus: I made toys for little boys and girls. I loved my work, and they oved me, but it just got out of hand. The world's population kept growing and growing. Kids wanted more toys, fancier toys! We used to make wooden chool-choos and rag dolls. You ever try to make an iPod? I've got orders for millions of 'em!
    Stewie: Oh, that reminds me. I need a new version of Quicken.

    Stewie: You can't jerk me around when it comes to Santa Claus, Brian! There is a Ferris wheel here and a guy hosing vomit! Nobody vomits at the North Pole! Except for Santa's wife because she has an eating disorder!
    Brian: What?
    Stewie: Yeah, 'cause he can have anyone he wants, and she knows that!

    Stewie: Hey, Brian, look. That one reindeer just kind of pooped in the other reindeer's face and the other reindeer just kind of ate it. Isn't Christmas magical?

    Holiday mishaps include Lois going ballistic after losing her Christmas cheer and Peter not being able to watch the KISS Christmas special.

    Memorable Quotes:

    Peter: Merry Christmas to all, and to all, shut the hell up!

    Mall Santa: Ho ho ho! And what can I bring you?
    Stewie: Oh, a peace offering, is it? Very well... What say you trim those gin-soaked whiskers and bring me some plutonium?
    Mall Santa: Well, can you be a good boy, hmmm?
    Stewie: Your inquiry intrigues me. Can any of us be a 'good boy?' Are our primal urges innate or the result of the choices we make?
    Mall Santa: OK, wrap it up, kid.
    Stewie: All right, Kringle, if the reward is plutonium, then your wager is accepted. I will be... "nice."

    Lois: Uh, uh, uh, before you sit down, we're due at Joe and Bonnie's for egg nog.
    Peter: Lois, can't we tell them that your mother died?
    Lois: Peter, I'm not going to lie about something like that.
    Peter: All right, all right, I'll kill your mother. God, when did Christmas become so complicated?

    Lois: You know, Chris. You and your stillborn brother, Tmas were named after Christmas.

    Peter: Oh, wow! This is my old house from when I was a little kid.
    Patrick Swayze: That's right, Peter. I'm taking you all the way back to the year 1970/80/90.
    Peter: I'll never forget that year. When President Richard Reagan Clinton lied to the American people.
