Sunday’s “Family Guy” is a pretty special one. Airing uninterrupted, thanks to PlayStation — the episode’s sole sponsor, which has chosen to run a 60-second spot for its new “God of War” video game before and after the show — this weekend’s installment consists entirely of a one-on-one conversation between Stewie (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and his therapist (voiced by Ian McKellen).

Seven straight minutes of that discussion is one epic takedown monologue by the Griffin baby, where Stewie perfectly dissects details of his therapist’s relationship and life after seeing just one photo of the psychiatrist and his younger boyfriend, Michael.

“I always wanted to write a really long monologue for Stewie,” writer Gary Janetti told TheWrap about the episode. So he did, and it ended up at seven pages long.

“I wrote it and I was like, ‘I don’t know if they’re gonna go for this,'” Janetti said of Stewie’s speech. “It just kind of kept going, but it felt like the right length to me.”

Nothing was cut from Janetti’s original script — not a word. And MacFarlane, who didn’t even get a chance to skim through the crazy thing ahead of a table-read, loved it. We think fans will too.
