In Season 5, Episode 17 (“It Takes a Village Idiot, and I Married One”), Lois Griffin (Alex Borstein) takes over the position of mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island, from poor, bumbling, murderous Adam West. This means Lois should water down her political ideologies so that the public can consume her mind without fear of critical thought, but hey, anything to enact change, right? Well, for Lois to become mayor, Adam’s gotta go.
And go he does, if only for a little while. Interestingly, the moment that fans grabbed from this episode has nothing to do with former mayor West’s toxic waste that dissolves hair or his string of public assassinations but with a very blunt bit of sexual harassment.
While waiting at a bus stop, Ex-And-Then-Not-Ex-Mayor West approaches a woman and drops the unforgettably horrendous line, “Hey baby. Wanna take a gander at some Adam West penis?” For some strange reason, it doesn’t work. Who would have guessed?
