At the end of the episode a doctor calls Peter on the phone and tells him that Karen needs a blood transfusion to save her but Peter refuses. He is also a billionaire industrialist, shipping mogul, and owner of several major companies. His company in the episode " Business Guy " is named Pewterschmidt Industries, and he is also a member of a fancy yacht club, where he mingles with other superwealthy people.
He is a hard worker, and has been shown to have become temporarily senile as a result of forced retirement in " Grumpy Old Man ". Carter is a domineering, devious and manipulative individual who despises his son-in-law, Peter, whom he often insults, badmouths and seeks to humiliate.

Spooner Street neighbors[ edit ] John Herbert voiced by Mike Henry — An elderly pederast often referred to solely by last name, who resides just down the street from the Griffin family and distributes Popsicle ice pops to small children in his basement.
Also, in " Spies Reminiscent of Us ", Stewie refers to a "pedophile who lives down the street" about which nobody is taking any action "because he's so funny", clearly talking about Herbert. He has a dog named Jesse, who is also very old and is unable to use his hind legs. He has a high-pitched, very soft effeminate voice and pronounces sibilant consonants with a high-pitched whistle. Herbert is often seen wearing a light blue robe and slippers, walks with a walker and frequently makes inappropriate, sexually tinged comments to teenage boys in " Road to the North Pole ", Herbert wants a little drummer boy for Christmas, while staring at a poster of Nick Jonas.

Quagmire family[ edit ] Glenn Quagmire voiced by Seth MacFarlane — The Griffins' next-door single sex-addicted neighbor and one of Peter's best friends.
He is an airline pilot for Spirit Airlines as revealed at the end of " Passenger Fatty-Seven " and a former member of the US Navybut is best known for his extreme sexuality and always saying "Giggity" or "Alright". He is attracted to nearly every woman especially Lois Griffin.
His sister is Brenda Quagmire. In one episode, he is revealed to have been Jack the Ripper in a past life. He has a soft side for cats and despises Brian from " Jerome is the New Black " and onward. He is shown on a number of occasions to be unnecessarily competitive, most notably while playing friendly games of baseball, bowling, and golf.
Her first appearance was in "Fore Father" where she is seen in a flashback breastfeeding Glenn. When facing prison time for statutory rape in "Quagmire's Mom", Quagmire places the blame for his behavior on living with his sexually promiscuous mom during his trial where her actions are seen during a flashback sequence. She arrives at his trial where a lot of the generic men attending the trial recognize her as noted by Mayor Adam West.
Crystal admits her faults, but claims to have found religion and asks that he be released to her custody. The judge presiding over the trial rejects her request and sentences Quagmire to twenty years in prison. She tries to get him to find solace in God as well, but he rejects her words. Stewie even asked Crystal if she is aware of what Dan has been through.
Just before he enters the prison, the judge arrives and announces that he has commuted Quagmire's sentence, thanks to his mother's "talents" and that new DNA evidence has turned up. He is surprised that despite her new religious life, she would do such a thing, but she admits that she would do anything to help him. Dan was a war hero in the Vietnam War.
He was thought to be a homosexual by Peter. When Glenn asked his father if this was true, Dan claimed that he was a woman trapped in a man's body and came to Quahog for a sex change operation. Following the operation, he takes the name Ida Davis. Brown family[ edit ] Cleveland Brown voiced by Mike Henry — Peter's mild-mannered friend who formerly owned and ran a deli. He is a heavyset, mustached African-American male who is very polite to everyone and has a unique laugh.
He is the father of Cleveland Jr. A running gag in the series is the front of his house being damaged, usually as a result of one of Peter's shenanigans, while Cleveland is in the upstairs bathtub. The tub always falls into the front yard with Cleveland exclaiming, "What the hell?! No, no, no, no, no, no!!! In " He's Bla-ack! Cleveland appears as R2-D2 in the Star Wars episodes.
She had a liking for cricket and the television program Friends. Performing Loretta's gravely voice was very demanding on Alex Borstein, and early in the show, Loretta had very few lines, the bulk of which were "Mm-hmm!
In the episode " Love, Blactually ", it is revealed that Loretta has regretted her actions and wants Cleveland back, but he refuses her advances. Cleveland informs her he needs to move on, and advises her to do the same. She takes Cleveland's house in the divorce and puts it up for sale, yet is still apparently living there some months later.
In The Cleveland Show episode "Gone with the Wind", Loretta dies in an accident when Peter drops a Brontosaurus skeleton which Brian had dug up from the Griffin family's yard on her house and she goes through the same bathtub gag that Cleveland went through which she does not survive.
Quagmire ended up driving her body down to Stoolbend for her funeral. In his appearances on Family Guy, he is slim, hyperactive and has an apparent knack for golf. However, starting with the first episode of The Cleveland Showhe is somewhat older and both obese and somewhat lethargic ; the reason for this sudden weight gain is never explained until the episode Season 4 episode "A Rodent Like This" where Cleveland Jr.
Also, it is revealed that he has lost his faith in God because of the affair his mother had with Quagmire that led to his parents' divorce. As of " He's Bla-ack! She has two biological children from a previous marriage with Robert named Roberta and Rallo. As a result of her marriage to Cleveland, she has adopted his son Cleveland Brown Jr. She was one of the main characters of The Cleveland Show.
The Quest for Stuff doesn't count as a speaking role. He is a paraplegic police officer who suffers from impotence and incontinence. Joe still proves to be an extremely skilled police officer, as he is constantly seen pursuing criminals or rescuing victims with the aid of his wheelchair and even goes so far as to abandon his wheelchair to complete his work.
Peter is… not so much. Smart or wise we mean. This brings up one of the bigger questions that fans have about the show: Here we see Stewie stop himself from being born by making Peter and Lois break up before Lois is pregnant. Even if this confirms that Peter is his father, it still makes you wonder. There have even been a few close calls where Peter has outright told Lois that he was going to leave, with Lois not being too bothered by the fact.
However, mature cartoons love to absolutely push the limit of how far one half of a relationship can go and still be entirely forgiven by the end of the thirty-minute time slot. While The Simpsons have mastered the bad-decision-and-forgiveness cycle between Homer and Marge, it starts to fall apart when Peter does things like spend their entire savings on ridiculous things like a horse, lottery tickets, or selling their house so that they can afford to live in a fancy mansion with servants.
Lois grew up extremely wealthy and privileged, but over the seasons we find out that she definitely had a rebellious streak. Not only did she regularly engage with shady people, she also had a habit of getting into shady business.
Her ultimate rebellious act though was for her to marry Peter. Of course, that always has fans wondering how and why Lois ever came in contact the shadier walks of life considering her upbringing.
Then again, that very same sheltered and privileged upbringing may well have made her go down that path in the first place. Her father is horrified to find out, for example, that she was hanging out with a man from a community college rather than an Ivy League school.
Peter used to work for the toy factory, and then was a fisherman for a time. Yet, they refuse to help supplement their income even a little bit. When Carter is helped out by his grandson after a surgery, Carter names him his sole heir to the Pewterschmidt fortune.

He immediately calls Lois, and demands that she guess where he sees people are having breakfast for dinner. The joke never goes further than this, but is still a hilarious side note about the Griffin house: Never suggest breakfast for dinner. As a baby, Stewie is regularly brought to daycare, and that is easily one of the most expensive services a mother can have for their kid.
It even regularly prompts parents to stay at home instead of shelling out for an expensive babysitter. Yet we regularly see Stewie being dropped off at daycare. Lois also insists on being a stay-at-home mom even though she regularly has Stewie in daycare, and both her other children are in high school. Nothing about this suggests that they even want to look at each other from day to day, but apparently, no matter the retconned story line, the history parody, or even entire alternate universe where everyone is in Star Wars, Lois and Peter end up together.
It seems only time will tell if the writers will explore Peter and Lois not being together fully.
