Endearingly ignorant Peter and his stay-at-home wife Lois reside in Quahog, ., and have three kids. Meg, the eldest child, is a social outcast, and teenage Chris is awkward and clueless when it comes to the opposite sex. The youngest, Stewie, is a genius baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. The talking dog, Brian, keeps Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues. Written by Jwelch5742

Brian Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) is the family's anthropomorphic talking white Labrador Retriever and the best friend of both Peter and Stewie. He and Stewie are often at the center of the show's most critically acclaimed episodes, most notably the " Road to... " episodes, where he and Stewie go on road-trips together. Brian is portrayed as an intellectual—a Brown University attendee—who often serves as the family's voice of reason, pointing out how ridiculous Peter's ideas are. He is not-so-secretly in love with Lois and is an unsuccessful, unemployed writer.
