Movin' In (Principal Shepherd's Song) is the 12th episode of the eighteenth season of Family Guy. It's the 438th episode, overall.


Principal Shepherd moves in with the Griffins after he is fired for fat-shaming Chris at school. Meanwhile, Brian sues Stewie for writing a series of children's books which portray him as an idiot.


Principal Shepherd Writing

When Chris gets picked to do the morning announcements, he flubs the job after misreading every single word. Annoyed, Principal Shepherd takes over. After Chris leaves, Principal Shepherd does the morning announcements and then forgets to turn off the microphone, so everything he says is heard by the whole school. Principal Shepherd sits there and insults Chris, calling him a number of names, mostly regarding his weight. The students all laugh at Chris and Chris runs out of the room, crying. At a meeting of the school board, Lois is outraged that someone fat-shamed Chris and insists on something being done so he is fired. Peter and Lois find him homeless so they invite him to stay with them. He soon starts to turn the home into a carbon copy of the school, and when the family complains, he tricks them into 'detention' in the basement. After some time to bond, they successfully petition the school board to reinstate Principal Shepherd.

Stewie Makes Brian Books

Meanwhile, Brian discovers Stewie with an entire opera going on in his room and questions the source of the money. This annoys Stewie who claims he can't let anyone be happy. Brian later goes to the pet store to buy a pet dog and finds out later that Stewie's money came from making him the uncomplimentary star of a book he writes about him being a dumb dog. The book is called Flunky the Dumb White Dog, written by ghostwriter "Griffin Stewart". Brian complains to Stewie about how he was presented in the book, but Stewie says he presented the real Brian. Brian files a suit against Stewie, sueing him for slander. In the courthouse, Stewie successfully proves that Brian is just as idiotic as he was depicted in the book, if not, more. After one day, Stewie wins the case.

Brian seems to take the loss well and says it inspired him to get back into writing himself. However, Stewie finds out that this means that he wrote his own uncomplimentary book about Stewie being gay called Swishy the Football Baby. As he gives chase, the scene changes to Chris pitching a book with both characters, but is rejected. However, the publisher has some interest in an erotic Phineas and Ferb fanfiction.
