After researching vaccinations for Stewie, Lois and Peter became part of the anti-vaxxer movement on Sunday night’s Family Guy. In typical, misguided, Peter fashion, he destroyed all the vaccines by blowing up the hospitals, Joker style. This resulted in an outbreak of measles in the town and a quarantine for Quahog and its residents. Even Peter ended up getting waylaid by the disease.
Stewie wasn’t going to sit around the house and wait to get infected, so he took the bridge out of town but ended up in a precarious situation. At the last second, actor — and as he was quick to point out, two-time Oscar winner — Sean Penn, literally flew in to save the day. He taught Lois a lesson about the importance and significance of vaccinations, even though she seemed somewhat less than thrilled to hear it.
