Peter (voice of Seth MacFarlane) is excited about New Year's Eve, until a man in a chicken suit outside the supermarket tells him about Y2K. "What are you selling?" asks the initially confused Peter. "Chicken or sex jelly?" No one in the family takes the threat seriously except Peter, who ruins their New Year's plans by locking them in the basement. They wear radiation suits and watch the neon alabaster clam drop at midnight in downtown Quahog on TV. A second later, the world ends. Planes drop out of the sky, and every other dire warning about Y2K comes true. After Peter foolishly squanders their dehydrated food supply, the family hits the road, searching for a Twinkie factory in Natick. They manage to elude Jorad and his easily distracted band of highway warriors. They find an old man who's got plenty of room in his house and a healthy apple tree in the backyard, but they're driven away by fellow survivor Randy Newman, who sings about everything he sees. Eventually, they find the Twinkie factory and set about rebuilding civilization with Peter in charge. Aside from Stewie (voice of Seth MacFarlane) sprouting tentacles, everything seems to be going well. But Peter angers the townspeople when decides that New Quahog will be safer if he takes the town's irrigation pipes and converts them into guns. "A chicken in every pot and a cap in every ass," is his motto. This episode features guest voice appearances by Victoria Principal and Patrick Duffy.
