Synopsis by Josh Ralske
Brian (voice of Seth MacFarlane) despairs of ever finding a woman who appreciates his taste in the fine arts. Peter (MacFarlane) is going to a laser rock show with his pals, and Lois (voice of Alex Borstein) goads him into taking Brian along to cheer him up. But on the way home, Brian gets busted for DUI. He's sentenced to community service, working for an elderly outreach program. He ends up taking care of a reclusive, grouchy old woman, Pearl Burton. Brian despises his cruel, domineering charge, and indignantly walks out on her, but he changes his tune when he learns of her failed opera career. He returns to Pearl, encouraging her to go back out into the world in an Emmy-winning musical number. Meanwhile, Peter, inspired by Grizzly Adams, decides to grow a big bushy beard, which he soon finds is inhabited by a bird of an endangered species. Forbidden by law to remove the bird, Peter puts up with it, even at the movies, where it snatches all his popcorn and disturbs the other patrons with its squawking. Just as Peter reaches the breaking point, the bird flies off, but it leaves three little hatchlings behind. Peter takes care of the little birds, growing quite fond of them, and has a hard time saying goodbye when it's time for them to leave the nest. This episode features the voice of A.J. Benza.
