Plot

In this episode, we are introduced to the White family. Stan hates the father, Chuck, who always beats the Smiths to church where Chuck gets the shady parking spot and Stan has to park in the sun. At church, the deacon chokes to death on a communion wafer and Chuck volunteers to be deacon. Stan, wanting to beat him, also volunteers. Steve becomes friends with Betsy, Chuck's daughter who has no freedom (is forced to do gymnastics) and is not even allowed to hold hands with boys (it leads to kissing and could end with pregnancy).

Meanwhile, Roger is going through his reproductive cycle. His breasts give off a milky substance. Tricked by Klaus, Roger eats all of Francine's potato salad. Trying to make a replacement, he uses his breast milk when he finds out they are out of mayonnaise. Francine serves Roger's salad and it is an instant hit. Discovering the advantage, Stan uses Roger's milk to make more potato salad, with some help from Karl Rove, and is elected deacon. However, Stan's technique of harvesting the alien breast milk has bad effects and Roger chokes. Steve then gives Roger mouth-to-mouth. By doing this, Steve accidentally becomes the host for Roger's egg and becomes pregnant.

Naturally, the family is concerned about Steve becoming a "father," and Stan is additionally worried that this will hurt his chances of becoming deacon. Hayley suggests that Steve could get an abortion, but Stan refuses. In order to deal with the problem, he decides for the family to go to Mexico ("God's blind spot"), where Steve can have the baby in secret. There, however, Stan does bring Steve to a doctor planning to abort the alien baby, and Steve reluctantly agrees, saying he is willing to do it for Stan. Stan, realizing how far he is willing to go just to beat Chuck White, decides to let Steve keep the baby, and they return to America. Soon afterwards, however, Betsy talks to Steve from his window and talks about how her life is miserable. They then kiss and accidentally, the baby is transferred to Betsy, who is the one now pregnant. Disowned by her parents who believe she has "been doing splits all over town" and forced to move out, Betsy tells Steve that she has never been happier now that she is pregnant. She no longer has to do gymnastics which was like a prison and now she is free. Stan then gives up his deacon position, pretending he is possessed by a demon. The episode ends with Stan and some black guy TPing Chuck White's house. Hayley Smith is the daughter of Stan and Francine Smith on the animated television series, American Dad!. Shes voiced by Rachael MacFarlane, the younger sister of one of the series co-creators, Seth MacFarlane. ... The Kiss by Francesco Hayez, 19th century. ...

  • Chuck White's laugh is almost identical to Phil Ken Sebben's from the adult swim adult cartoon Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law.
  • When Roger is "milked" by the machine he screams Kill me... kill me which is a referrence to Alien Resurrection as Ellen Ripley is begged to kill her mutant clone

The-Relational-Progression, Chap.1 (11265 words)
Jesus is telling us, in other words, that in order to serve him it's not sufficient for Christians to focus "on the work to be done," or on situations, circumstances, no matter how dedicated we are or how good our intentions.
Therefore the biblical narratives of Jesus' person and words (especially between the manger and the cross) and the early church will be the main focus of our study on discipleship in order to understand what it means to be his disciple, and how that identity remains significant and imperative for Christian practice today.
Throughout his earthly life Jesus taught, demonstrated but most of all intimately interacted with his disciples to help them to see, to understand and to experience how he wanted their adherence to him to be.

The Church had gotten her man, and we were ready to give him what has now become a Pope’s welcome.
This incredibly gifted man, who was equipped to be a great success in the world and in the world’s eyes, instead decided to reject the lure of the world for the radical lifestyle of the celibate Roman Catholic priest.
Jesus teaches us that those who shepherd His flock must strive to be like Him in His love for the flock, a love so deep that He is the “Good Shepherd Who lays down His life for His sheep”.
