Goofs

In the syndicated print of Part 2, Diane refers to hiding Lois' death by saying "...you know unless a local cat does something funny." Ironically, the cat she refers to (voiced by Patrick Stewart) appears in a scene that the syndicated print of Part 1 deleted, due to time compressing. See more »

Quotes

Jillian Russell: Hey... maybe it was that cat who was the murderer! Let me ask him: "Meow meow meow, meow meow meow meow?"
Talking Cat: [voice of Patrick Stewart] We don't all talk like that. I happen to be a professor.
Derek Wilcox: Our apologies, sir.
Talking Cat: I should imagine so. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have papers to correct.

Great animation and fun story but they forgot to add any jokes!
28 September 2010 | by lee-wilsonSee all my reviews

I love Family Guy but this episode just wasn't very funny at all. They have obviously stepped up the quality of animation. It looked fantastic and it was a great premise for an episode, spoofing Agatha Christie thrillers. However it was let down by a serious lack of actual comedy. I laughed out loud twice in 50 minutes of screen time. The writer had no idea how to write lines for many of the characters apart from occasionally Peter and Quagmire.

It was intriguing that they killed off some of the characters but personally I would have gone further, slight spoiler follows as I name people that survived. Can they do anything more with Herbert, he has harassed the hell out of Chris for years and it just isn't funny anymore? Or with Consuela who was a one joke character anyway? Or with Mayor West who again seems to have run his natural course in the show?
