Brian: Portrait of a Dog
Love Thy Trophy is the fifth episode of season one of Family Guy.
Peter, Quagmire, Cleveland, and Joe all work together to make a float for the That Episode of Who's the Boss? in which Tony sees Angela Naked parade, and win the trophy, but get into a little dispute over who gets to keep it.
For Quahog’s yearly harvest festival parade with floats, the theme by Peter, “That Episode of Who’s the Boss? in Which Tony Sees Angela Naked”, is chosen.
The float built by Peter, Quagmire, Cleveland and Joe Swanson wins, but the men can’t agree at whose house the golden clam trophy should reside. They eventually decide on having it be placed over the road, held up by the statues from the float. The next day, the trophy is found to be missing, and everyone immediately suspects each other of stealing it.
Meanwhile, Meg gets a job so she can buy herself a Prada bag. She lets restaurateur Flappy believe that Stewie is her crack-addicted baby and she is a single mother, so that people will give her higher tips.
This eventually leads Child Protective Services to place Stewie in a foster home. Upon finding this out, Peter, Lois, Quagmire, Cleveland, Loretta, Joe, and Bonnie put their argument aside to bail Stewie out. When an espionage mission fails, they instead trade Meg’s newly-acquired Prada bag for Stewie, but they still don’t know what happened to the trophy. That night, it is revealed to the viewers that Brian buried it in the Griffins’ yard.
