Hoping to fulfill a dream she's had since teenhood, Lois defies her parents in embarks upon a career as a model. Not only does this make husband Peter jealous, but it also exacts a huge toll on Lois when she starts popping diet pills. As Peter cooks up a plan to win his wife back, baby Stewie concocts "CashScam", a pyramid scheme, with a reluctant Brian (who needs the money for his worm medication) as his head henchman. Among the pop-culture references in this episode are jibes at Sesame Street and Six Feet Under, and even a broadside aimed at Family Guy fans who have nothing better to do with their time than pause their DVDs to catch the jokes they'd missed first time around.
