Nanny Goats
Nanny Goats is an episode of Family Guy.


The Griffins hire a nanny. Meanwhile, Peter buys a bunch of goats.


Peter decides that having to mow the lawn is the perfect time to acquire a herd of goats, but they wreck the house as Lois' parents arrive for a visit. Feeling that she works so hard to keep the house and raise the kids, they pay for a nanny to take care of things which allows for Lois and Peter to bond over the course of a week. When they return drunk from a night out, they find they had arranged to go away together for a weekend and decide to follow though on it. The trip leaves a lot to be desired, and they soon begin to wear on each other's nerves. Things come to a head and they angrily agree to split up when the trip is over. But when they arrive home, the sight of the children there to greet them brings them back together.

Meanwhile, after taking care of things well enough to send Peter and Lois on their trip, Natalia the nanny reveals that she is not only an assassin, but has made some enemies from her native Belarus who come for revenge. With Stewie in tow, she manages to kill most of her pursuers. Hopping aboard a small jet, she straps a parachute on Stewie and tosses him back toward his home as she flies away, leaving him to want another ride when he lands.
