VOICE OVER: Ryan Wild WRITTEN BY: Kim Mabee
These Stewie Griffin moments made him the show's scene-stealer. Our countdown includes being clingy, road trip musical with Brian, Stewie vs. broccoli, and more!

#10: Being Clingy “Stewie Loves Lois”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

In the early seasons of “Family Guy,” we’re used to seeing Stewie always on a mission to do something sinister. He is usually seen trying to come up with a way to take out his mother, but in this season 5 premiere he does a 180 after Lois fixes his teddy bear, Rupert, and makes him his favorite dinner. These adorable gestures cause Stewie to have a change of heart, and he becomes extra clingy towards her. While Lois is initially thrilled that her normally independent baby is being loving, she soon becomes exhausted with his neediness. This all culminates in Stewie trying to get her attention by repeating her name many, many times before she acknowledges him, something that is hilarious and almost too relatable for a lot of parents.

#9: Stewie Bonding with Peter “The Courtship of Stewie’s Father”

Top 10 Times Stewie Griffin Got What He Deserved on Family Guy

After Lois decides that Peter and Stewie need to spend more quality time together, Peter finds a perfect activity to entertain him and his infant son. Since Peter is always a practical joker, and Stewie has a dark humour and attitude towards his mother, the two bond over seeing Lois in distress. The pair pull pranks on her, which get more and more disturbing as the episode goes on. This episode is one of the few times we get to see Peter and Stewie doing things together, and it makes us wish that the father and son duo would get more screen time together to show off more of their antics. Even if they could be nicer.

#8: Road Trip Musical With Brian “Road to Rhode Island”

We love seeing episodes centered around Stewie and Brian’s adventures, and it’s even better when that premise is combined with a classic “Family Guy” tune. In this season two episode, our favorite dog and baby are seen in their first of many “road to…” episodes, which were inspired by the Bing Crosby and Bob Hope “Road to” series of movies. As they travel back home from California, hijinks ensue when they get stuck at a motel, hotwire a car, and try to fly a crop duster. This hilarious journey to Rhode Island shows why they became such an iconic duo, as it highlights the touching, musical, and funny aspects of Brian and Stewie’s relationship.

#7: Stewie Eliminates Mr. Rogers “Brian in Love”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

The first few seasons of “Family Guy” show evil genius Stewie at his best, and this scene is no exception. As the opening to “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” begins, all looks well with Mr. Rogers. That is until Stewie enters the scene, well-spoken as ever, proclaiming that the neighbourhood of make-believe has been destroyed right before ending the beloved television host. This is far from the last time we see Stewie’s cruel behaviour, and leave it up to Stewie to ruin the most pure, innocent children’s program out there. Don’t worry though, as it thankfully turns out this was all just Stewie’s dream.

#6: Stewie Saves Brian From Being Hit By a Car “Christmas Guy”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

Fans were devastated after Brian fell victim to a hit and run. And after the Griffins welcomed their new dog Vinny into the family and Stewie destroyed his time machine, it looked like Brian’s return was unlikely. In this episode, present-day Stewie runs into Stewie from the past, who traveled through time to be the first to buy a new toy at Christmas. Stewie realizes this is his chance to go back and save Brian, and when he does, we see one of the most touching moments between the two. While we love seeing Stewie as an evil genius, and as a hilariously inappropriate baby, this is one of our favorite moments: seeing him being sincere and vulnerable and self-sacrificing in saving his best friend.

#5: Stewie Follows Fat Guys With a Tuba “No Chris Left Behind”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

After Chris starts attending a fancy, expensive private school, the whole family needs to find ways to make money to help with his tuition, and Stewie tries to find a… let’s say, creative way of doing so. At least he thinks so. Stewie starts following fat guys around while playing a tuba, and trying to charge money for this when he’s done. This creates a scenario that is both hilarious yet very cruel, in classic Stewie fashion. While he may seem selfless in working to raise money for his brother to go to school, he seems to be enjoying this new gig, as much as we enjoy watching him do it. But pro tip: this wouldn’t be at all funny in real life.

#4: Stewie vs. Broccoli “I Never Met the Dead Man”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

In the second episode of the series, Stewie has already established himself as a sharp-tongued, stubborn, malevolent baby, and this scene shows off everything that we love about him. As usual, Stewie is more vocal and well-spoken than most adults, but he shows that he is still displeased by normal baby things, like vegetables. But, instead of just spitting out the broccoli and crying like a normal baby, he takes it a step further and plots his revenge, coming up with a ploy to kill broccoli. This is something that a lot of babies could probably relate to, but none have quite the vocabulary that Stewie has, so we guess we’ll never know.

#3: Stewie Goes to Therapy “Send in Stewie, Please”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

While some of the best episodes are indeed the ones that center around Stewie and Brian, this is the first episode where Stewie truly gets to take center stage. Stewie reveals a lot about himself through this therapy session, like that he is lonely and a big fan of the musical “Hamilton.” But, the biggest revelation in this episode of dark twists is when Stewie uncovers his real voice - which is in fact, not a British accent, but an American one. He reveals that he created his persona because he didn’t want to be like everyone else... as if being a talking baby that has been a killer and a time traveler, to name just a few things, wasn’t enough.

#2: Stewie and Brian Get Stuck in a Bank “Brian and Stewie”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

Speaking of episodes focused on Stewie and Brian, who could forget this hilarious and emotional one? In this special 150th episode of the show, Stewie and Brian get trapped in a bank together. And, as in our previous entry, there aren’t cutaways or other characters taking our attention. Brian and Stewie inadvertently spend this time getting to know each other, and we get a deeper look into their friendship as well. There are humorous moments, as when Stewie and Brian get drunk and the latter pierces the former's ear. There are also some more somber moments, like Brian discussing his dark thoughts. Both hysterical and heartbreaking, this episode shows the very best of Brian and Stewie’s iconic friendship. Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions. “Where’s My Money?” “Patriot Games” Stewie Doesn’t Understand Peek-a-Boo “Peter’s Got Woods” Stewie on Steroids “Stew-Roids” Stewie Gets Drunk Off Cough Syrup “Baking Bad” That’s Gotta Hurt “Peterotica”

#1: Stewie Almost Kills Lois When Death Is Out of Commission “Death Is a Bitch”

Also in:

Top 10 Best Stewie and Brian Moments From Family Guy

One of Stewie’s staple traits is his obsession with ending his mother’s life, and while we do see him kill Lois in season six, in another epic Stewie moment, that just turns out to be a computer simulation. However, this particular season two moment is our favorite, because it’s one of the few times that Stewie actually goes through with his attempts. Of course, when Death breaks his ankle, he is unable to do his job and no one can die, so when Stewie tries to kill Lois, he’s unsuccessful. The later seasons actually give us a softer side to Stewie, but the season 9 premiere showed us that, while he may want to keep Lois safe, it’s only so that he can be the one that takes her down.
