Quagmire's father, Dan, comes to Quahog for a visit. Peter and Joe meet him, hoping to learn what makes Dan's son tick, but they soon suspect that he might be a homosexual and share their suspicions with Quagmire. At a Naval ball held in Dan's honor (where naval officers lace their praise with double-entendre statements), Quagmire finally confronts his father and learns that he is "a woman trapped in a man's body" and is planning to have a sex-reassignment operation. Quagmire is deeply upset by this, and - despite the surgery being a success, Dan emerging as an attractive blonde woman named Ida, and his friends' support - Quagmire can't accept his father's new identity.

Did You Know?


During the dinner with Glenn's father, Glenn says, "this corn is special" when the conversation becomes uncomfortable and Glenn wants to change the subject. This is the same phrase used by Ned Beatty in Deliverance to change the subject at the dinner table when Jon Voigt begins to cry in front of the mountain people. See more »

This is awful
25 June 2019 | by nasdagoodshepherdSee all my reviews

Why? Why? Why this? Family Guy has gone downhill! Quagmire's Dad is so incredibly terrible it doesn't deserve to exists at all. Quagmire's father got a sex change operation and ended up becoming a woman. Ida Davis is literally my least favorite character in the show, just looking at her makes me want to beat her up with a broken wine bottle, to me, she is an insult to women and people who are transsexual. I really wish this episode was never made and I wish Ida Davis never existed, or I can wish they can make an episode where Ida dies and never comes back. Skip this episode. I give this one a 1.2/10
