“I need an adult” is a catchphrase used to express one’s feeling of discomfort or disapproval towards something that’s been said or posted by another user.


The quote “I need an adult!” is taken from the popular TV show Family Guy’s Season 2 Episode 17 “He’s Too Sexy for His Fat,” which originally aired on June 27th, 2000. At the beginning of episode, a security guard at a supermarket accuses Chris of shoplifting a piece of ham after mistaking his belly for deli meat. Feeling molested by the guard, Chris yells out “I need an adult!” out of frustration.

The phrase did not catch on until 2007, two years after Family Guy was picked up by Cartoon Network’s [adult swim] programming block.
