On Family Guy, Stewie revealed one of his deepest, darkest secrets to his school counselor. Something he’d never told anyone, which of course meant the counselor had to go. Some fans thought this would finally be the big reveal about Stewie being gay, but that wasn’t the case.
“I only pushed Tyler down the stairs because I like him and I’m afraid he won’t like me back,” Stewie told the counselor. “And not like him — like him. I’m not gay. This whole thing isn’t because I’m gay, so calm down. I can already see you lickin’ your chops. I’m sure you live for the coming out sessions.”
What Stewie disclosed was his real voice. It turns out he doesn’t actually have the accent we’ve all grown accustomed to. In fact, he sounds a little like Peter.
“This is how I talk,” Stewie said. “The accent is nothing more than an affectation, a coat of armor to get me through the day, just an image I cultivated so I could feel special.”
But for those of you who enjoy someone faking a British accent, don’t fret. When the counselor told him he’d be just like everybody else, Stewie went right back to the accent. One thing Stewie will always have in common with a lot of people in Quahog is that he’s one of the many voices done by Seth MacFarlane, which the show poked fun at when the counselor couldn’t tell the difference between Stewie’s real voice and his fake accent. To make sure his secret didn’t get out, Stewie let the counselor die rather than get him his heart medication.
