When Brian decides that he has this urge to find a bone that he buried years ago, Stewie lets him know that it is possible to go back in time and find out exactly where he put it. Brian obliges and the pair travel back to the pilot episode of Family Guy, allowing the two to crack wise on the poor animation and voice-acting that was done while McFarlane and Co. were experimenting with character development. Things seem to go just fine until they arrive back home, as Brian told his past self about the tragedy of 9/11. A civil war breaks out at the hands of George W. Bush, who subsequently lost the Presidential election in 2004. Stewie and Brian continually go back in time to correct everything, only making things worse and worse as it goes along.
