This episode was REALLY boring the hell out of me until that Brian/Peter fight at the end. The Babysitter Herbert side plot was incredibly dull with the big payoff coming when Chris straight-out asked the guy if he was a pedophile. Too bad they just cut away when that question was asked. As for the jokes themselves, they were just random. Was "Osmonds wasting water" the best they could come up with?
The main story...well...it's Brian pining over Lois, which we've seen a hundred times already.
Thumbs down, but that Brian/Peter fight kicked some ass.

I thought the fight was the worst part. It was like the chicken fights without the damn chicken.
Agreed. The big fight, Herbet pining over children, Brian in love with Lois... it's all been done before. And maybe it's the New Yorker in me, but I really, I mean REALLY hated the pimping of Massachusetts in jingle by Peter throughout the latter half of the episode.
Only good jokes were the Osmonds wasting water and "Damn, nature! Why you so scray?".
I thought this episode was a little bit of a weak ending. Mostly because they went so big with it, it felt like it was spread too thin for a half hour. I think they really needed a two-parter to tell this story the right way.
