The Correct Viewing Order Of Family Guy’s Star Wars Episodes

While I’m not going to go over an exhaustive list of “Star Wars” gags from throughout the show’s history, I am going to recount a few personal favorites, in addition to the episodes they can be found in. First up, there’s a great bit involving Carter Pewterschmidt and an attorney who shows up at his house trying to sue him. Carter promptly throws him into a Rancor pit, but the lawyer thwarts the beast like Luke did in “Return of the Jedi.” Carter responds with the excellent line, “I didn’t realize Greenberg was a Jedi name.” The bit is in the episode “Peterotica” from season 4, episode 24.

Another bit from season 4 occurs when Peter is upset that he got passed over for employee for the month at the brewery, at which time, he recounts a bad job he had as the conductor of the Sand People choir. Obi-Wan Kenobi shows up to riff on a classic line from “A New Hope,” serving as a nice button to the gag. The bit appears in the episode “The Courtship of Stewie’s Father,” the 16th episode of season 4.

Lastly, we get to a lesser-discussed but arguably an all-timer “Star Wars” bit from the show. In season 5 episode 7, “Chick Cancer,” Stewie sets up a cutaway gag where we see the Rebels planning the assault on the Death Star. When Luke suggests to a fellow Rebel pilot that it is possible to hit the exhaust port with proton torpedoes, as he used to bullseye Womprats in his T-16, he full-on sandbags the guy in the process. It leads to a very funny exchange as well as a brilliant take on a classic “Star Wars” moment.
