On Sunday’s episode, “Family Guy” will formally say goodbye to Carrie Fisher, who voiced Peter Griffin’s brewery boss, Angela, in more than a dozen episodes.
In the video clip above, Griffin is giving the eulogy for Fisher’s character, though it’s pretty obvious that the show’s writers are talking about Fisher as well. The episode itself will focus on Peter’s new bosses at the brewery, husband and wife duo Bert and Sheila, played by Bryan Cranston and Niecy Nash, but it will begin with Angela’s funeral.
In Griffin’s remarks, along with explaining her cause of death (“Swimming less than 20 minutes after eating”) and referencing multiple TV show theme songs, he then appears to speak on behalf of the writers talking about Fisher herself.
“She may be gone, but her voice will live on in DVD and Hulu Plus and tiny droid-projected messages,” he says, before ending with: “I may have lost a boss, but heaven has gained a princess.”
Though Fisher “appeared” for the final time in the Dec. 10, 2017 episode, this is the show’s way of paying tribute to the late actress, who died at the end of 2016. Fisher will appear in “Star Wars: Episode IX,” which will be out a year from now, using “previously unreleased footage.”
