What Is The Context Of The "Lois Screams 'Peter'" Viral Meme Video?
The scene where Lois screams Peter's name comes from the October 16th, 2022 episode of Family Guy titled "The Munchurian Candidate." In the episode, Lois reveals to her girlfriends that Peter is hesitant to perform oral sex on her. Peter is put under hypnosis during a hypnotherapy session and given a trigger word that makes him perform oral sex on her, however, the trigger word gets mixed up. When Peter hears the theme to the show Extra, which goes, "extra, extra," it triggers the prompt, making him go down on Lois.
Things go wrong when Peter and Lois visit Lois' parents' house. During dinner, Peter goes up to Lois' mother Babs' room to deliver her a plate, as she is sick and bedridden. While he's up there, Extra comes on the TV, triggering him and leading him to go down on Babs. Lois hears the song and rushes up to stop Peter. She swings open the door and screams his name for a few seconds straight, but it's too late.
