An exhausted Lois (voice of Alex Borstein) insists that the family get a second car, despite Peter's (voice of Seth MacFarlane) contention that "you meet such colorful characters in taxis." Lois suggests looking in the paper, but Peter disagrees. "A guy at work bought a car from an ad in the paper," he tells her, "Ten years later, boom. Herpes." At the car dealer's, Lois wants something practical, but Peter falls in love with a sports car, despite the fact that it has a cardboard steering wheel and only a drawing of an engine. When the car breaks down, Lois rightfully complains that Peter never involves her in the family decisions. The mob unexpectedly comes to Peter's aid, arranging to steal his car so that he'll get the insurance money. All is well until the mob guy shows up to tell Peter that the Don wants a favor in return. "What are you gonna make me do?" Peter nervously asks, "Whack a guy? Off a guy? Whack off a guy? 'Cuz I'm married...." It turns out the Don just wants Peter to take his obnoxious nephew, Big Fat Paulie, to the movies on the eve of the Don's daughter's wedding. "Wait a minute. What movie?" Peter asks, "'cuz if it's anything with Greg Kinnear, you can just whack me off right now." As it turns out, Peter and Paulie go to see "How Stella Got Her Groove Back 2." Next, Paulie invites himself over for dinner, much to the family's dismay. Lois makes Peter throw Paulie out, and she soon finds herself targeted by a hitman. This episode features voice work from Michael Chiklis, Alan King, and Jon Cryer.
