In "Lethal Weapons", he picked a fight with some New Yorkers and got his ass kicked.

In "The Cleveland Loretta Quagmire", Peter tried to bring out Cleveland's tough guy side, by having Patty provoke him. Cleveland just stood by and let him be obnoxious, while Patty punched him in the legs, causing no damage at all. Patty did this, until he wore himself out.

In "Brian the Bachelor", he was the first bachelor voted off the show, for being an obnoxious little rat.

In "The Perfect Castaway", he worked at Honda and Subaru, and acted like an annoying boss to Brian.

In "Hell Comes to Quahog", he was run over by a tank, and officially killed off the show.
