Fox Network

For more than two decades, millions of people have spent at least one night a week with the Griffin Family from Family Guy. They’re crass and sarcastic, mean, and often gross. Make no mistake — the Griffin Family may be animated, but they are not Disney characters. Their dynamic is nothing short of completely dysfunctional! The dad, Peter, is an idiot (#facts) and often only seems intelligent when it’s in comparison to his son, Chris. The baby, Stewie, is elitist and homicidal. And why? If anyone deserves to be full of rage, it’s daughter Meg. Every episode of the show, she’s dumped on and torn apart. The Griffin Family is honestly exhausting. And yet, perplexingly, we love them and routinely cite Family Guy quotes. What can we say? Humans are complex creatures.

It seems creator Seth MacFarlane will do absolutely anything for fun, and Family Guy is proof of just that. There have been plenty of cringe-worthy moments over the years. But for every truly socially awkward or offensive turn of events, we’re given an equally heartening chance to watch the characters grow — if only minutely and if only for an episode. Throughout its run, the show has delivered plenty of hiccup-inducing laughs. Maybe you need a little reminder, though. So, without further ado, it’s peanut butter jelly time. In other words, keep reading for some of the funniest Family Guy quotes.
