Theory

At first, I thought this was a Liberty Bell episode, but then I remembered that Mike Barker's no longer on the show and it wouldn't make sense for Greg to appear without Terry at this point in the series. ~Curious Poker Chip 3:53 p.m. September 24th, 2015 (Pacific)

I think it's just an out-of-order Christmas episode...meaning we already know what many of the earliest episodes are. I think this was a last minute idea. --Buckimion (talk) 22:57, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

Edit: OTH, I've noticed Libby definitely maturing. Maybe a birthday episode and Terry dies? --Buckimion (talk) 22:59, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

Or Terry could be separated from Greg. Maybe they could get Mike Barker back just for the voice a la Larry David on Seinfeld (he voiced Steinbrenner). But I think you may be right on it being a holiday episode and could just not feature Libby in any way. I'm kinda talking out of my ass at this point, lol. ~Curious Poker Chip 4:02 p.m. September 24th, 2015

New spin

Now that we know the plot to "Anchorfran", I'm betting that Libby is now in the role of Olivia from The Cosby Show or Cousin Oliver from The Brady Bunch and the Smith's are granted custody of the child. Cue the late production "cute kid" and/or "is smarter than most of the cast" storylines. --Buckimion (talk) 01:52, February 14, 2016 (UTC)

And why can't Greg just raise the child on his own? Just saying. ~Curious Poker Chip 6:55 p.m. February 13th, 2016 (Pacific)

That's how it usually starts...a little personal history. Shortly before I met my future wife, she had a daughter that had been taken by the state on what appears to be bogus reasons. Needless to say, she was in a bad state when I met her. I straightened her up, got her visitations with her daughter and the foster family who was moving to adopt her at the urging of CPS. When I suggested that a complete visitation loss would result in an ugly court fight (and at the time I was a respected & ranking police officer), the family proposed an "open adoption" with what I judged to be acceptable guides for continued visits. Things went well for the first 18 months and then the adoptee mother died. This really didn't change our status, but the surviving father found himself under a growing burden until he decided that he simply had to surrender her back to us, with the blessing of the court. --Buckimion (talk) 03:06, February 14, 2016 (UTC)

Well then... haha lol.

I do actually think you may be correct on that. It would be interesting to have a new member of the family and having a little kid around the house may shake things up a bit for the episodes to come. I really like this theory, but I am not sure if it'll happen. ~Curious Poker Chip 7:21 p.m. February 13th, 2016 (Pacific)

Wow

Who knew my first hunch would be right? --Buckimion (talk) 17:24, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah if this was a Christmas episode why didn't they air it during Christmas? ~Curious Poker Chip 11:28 a.m. May 18th, 2016 (Pacific)

idk, maybe I'm a dinosaur, but I have never really understood the reasoning behind cramming an entire year (season) of shows into 3-4 months. That business model seems horribly expensive. --Buckimion (talk) 18:31, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

I do kinda agree, and I am in my twenties, lol. The benefit is that we get more American Dad! (once a week), but still I kinda liked having it the regular way. ~Curious Poker Chip 11:28 a.m. May 18th, 2016 (Pacific)

Also why is it now called "Gifted Me Liberty"? It sounds like bad English. ~Curious Poker Chip 11:28 a.m. May 18th, 2016 (Pacific)

I'm not sure either, but it's not out of the realm of possibility that somewhere along the road there was a misspelling, either by FOX or at the copyright office. That is not unheard of and we only record "significant" changes in titles. --Buckimion (talk) 18:53, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

Season Count

Read the Episode Guide for the full story. Because TBS has changed the season count at least once a year every year under their control, we follow their original 2014-based count until further notice. Season counts on other providers are NOT accepted here. --Buckimion (talk) 16:11, November 5, 2017 (UTC)
