Peter is a Number 1 Tranny
Trans-Fat is an episode of Family Guy. It is also a full-length crossover episode with Bob's Burgers.


Peter gets mistaken for a transgender woman.


Peter Goes Into the Women's Bathroom
When Peter gets tickets to a Red Sox game for a funny video, he ends up having to use the bathroom. However, when the line for the men's room is way too long and the women's bathroom is too scary, he eventually has to use the transgender bathroom. When he returns, he is caught in the act on the Jumbotron and identified as transgender.

Peter goes to work the following day to be greeted by Bert and Sheila, who claim to support his new gender identity. Peter tries to tell them that he's not actually trans, but before he can, the two tell him about all of the extra perks he'll get at work for being trans and so he decides to play along.

When Peter takes advantage of his life as a woman, he ends up knocking himself into a coma, by dancing on the counter at a bar and hitting his head of a ceiling fan. While he is out, Bert and Sheila go ahead and have gender reassignment surgery performed on him. When Peter becomes officially classified as a woman, she freaks out.

Bert and Sheila Visit Peter in the Hospital
After learning about the event, Peter's family judges her for what she did, saying that she got what she deserved for being a transtrender. Peter gets lessons from Lois and his boss Shelia about what it's like to live as a woman and she gets used to it.

Peter's old friends think she's annoying as a woman, so they all dump him. Now, Peter has nowhere to turn to and she sinks into a deep depression. She stumbles across Ida in a bar who is simultaneously critical and helpful. With her help, they start a fund drive that enables Peter to have her penis returned.

The episode ends with everything returned back to normal and a few shots at the cast of Bob's Burgers.

Cleveland: Hey! Expurrience not expurriments, you son of a-

[Peter reads his I-pad in bed, while Lois tries to sleep]
Lois: You almost done with the chapter?
Peter: Oh, there's no chapters. It's a Clifford book.

Ida: When I first met you, Peter. I was already at the end of a long journey to find the courage to become a woman. But before that, I lived for 61 years as a miserable, miserable man. I grew up in the small town of Football, Texas.
[Flashback shows Ida, when she was still a little boy named Dan, living in Texas]
Ida: [narration] As you can guess, they were very conservative down in the South, especially at the time. The LGBT community was practically non-existent back in the 60's. The only pride parades we had there were incest pride parades and if you looked favorably on any sexual orientation even half as good as that, you'd be seen as some kind of a deviant.
[As Ida describes the incest pride parades, a red, white, and blue parade float comes by, with a bunch of hillbillies on it, loving and kissing their brothers, sisters, and cousins; As Ida describes how people would be treated weird for supporting the LGBT community, Dan is shown, holding a purple flag and everyone gives him a dirty look]
Dan: Hooray for the incestuous and for gay people too!
Texan Man: Boy, you get that twisted idealism and purple flag outta here!
Texan Woman: Our kids ain't gunna be exposed to yer propaganda!
[Two demented inbred children are shown looking at Dan in disgust]
[Dan is shown going to school, wearing a skirt, a pink shirt, and bow; Other kids at the school point and laugh at him]
Ida: [narration] At the age of 8, I was mercilessly bullied and teased for being different and "dressing funny".
Texan Bully #1: Hey, Dan. How's your after school gardening class going?
Dan: Um, great. Thanks for asking. I'm actually growing some beautiful azaleas.
Texas Bully #2: Sounds great. Too bad you can't grow any balls, though.
[Both bullies laugh at him and Dan's eyes well up with tears]
Ida: [narration] Then, at the age of 14, I learned about the concept of "transgenderism" in a book I was reading, and what I found fascinated me. I had an epiphany.
[As Ida narrates this, Dan is shown as a 14 year old boy, reading a book on Roman history in his room; He spots an article on transgenderism in ancient roman times, that make his eyes widen]
Ida [narration] It was so clear. This is exactly what was wrong with me. I was a girl trapped in a boy's body.
[Back to scene]
Peter: So, back in the 60's, people threw pride parades for incest people like they were gay or bi?
Ida: Yes. Back then, people would come out to their parents to tell them how much they loved them.
Peter: Yuck, that's repulsive, but historically informative. Go on.

[Peter cries over thinking he's a bad person and Ida comforts him]
Ida: Peter, listen to me. You we're a bad person, but now, you've taken a journey. It just took becoming a woman to make you a better man.
Peter: But I'll never be that better man. I donated my old penis to the charity for dickless celebrities and there's no way Justin Trudeau is giving it back.
Ida: We can get you a new one.
Peter: [sniff] Can I have yours?
Ida: No, I gave it to my son, remember?
Peter: Oh, yeah. Kind of wish I could forget. But even if I do get it back, I can't afford the surgery to go back.

[Meg enters, wearing a dress, holding a knife, and covered in blood]
Meg: What. a. day.

Brian: Oh, Peter. You started a Kickstarter.
Peter: Not exactly.
[The screen of the website is shown, with the first letter of the title, being covered by Ida's boob]
Brian: Oh, that's...that's not a K.

Ida: Look at that! You're up to six inches! That's two inches past your goal!

Ida: Hey, look! Justin Trudeau just donated your old penis back!
Peter: Looks like he did give it up after all!
Ida: Yeah, he sent a message here, it says he cut it off because he didn't like it's patriarchal sentiment.

Dr. Hartman: Congratulations, Mr. Griffin, your surgery was a success. You're a man again!
[Quagmire kicks down the door and punches Peter in the jaw]
Peter: [pained] Auuugh!
Peter: Oh, you remember that, huh?
[Joe enters and punches Peter]
Peter: OOOW!!!
Peter: [sad and scared] Okay, sorry!
[Cleveland enters an punches Peter]
Peter: Ow!
Peter: I did not deserve that.
[Mort enters and punches Peter]
Peter: Ow! What was that for!?
Peter: Jeez!
[Jerome enters to punch Peter and as we hear him give Peter a number of poundings, along with the sounds of Peter's screams, the screen shows a long line of people waiting at the door, going in to punch Peter, including Seamus, Tom Tucker, Giant Chicken, Stewie, Chris, Carl, and Carter Pewterschmidt]

Chris: Dad, you lost a wiener, but came out a winner!

Peter: Well, that does it for our crossover episode. Thanks for coming, cast of Bob's Burgers.
[The Belcher Family shows up in the living room]
Bob: We didn't get to do anything.
Peter: Show's 22 minutes long. Not everything makes it to air.
Linda: Seriously? You made us come all the way up here, and we didn't even get to make a real appearance?
Peter: Sorry. But guess what?, you have the floor of there's something hilarious you wanna say. I'll just sit here and be quiet.
[The Belcher Family goes silent for a few seconds]
Tina: Oh, I know. I'm just like every other girl. I put my bra on, one boob at a time.
Peter: Well, go on. Say something hilarious.
Tina: I just did.
Peter: Not yet, you haven't. Anyone have any kind of joke, whatsoever?
Gene: Hey, at least we don't joke about gross out garbage like you.
Louise: Yeah, we're a lot classier than that.
Brian: Oh, yeah, like a teenage girl putting her bra on. That's-That's very high-brow.
Peter: Come on, guys. Give us two Emmys worth of amazing.
Gene: Fart school! Remember that?
Chris: You made a whole episode about farts?
Meg: Don't tell me you won an Emmy for that.
Lois: If that won an Emmy, then we should be getting twenty Emmys a season.
Gene: It was funny to me.
Peter: Maybe a funny burger name?
Louise: The child molester. That was funny.
Lois: Yeah, and high brow too.
Brian: Okay, does anyone have anything funny to say?
Peter: Girl in the bunny ears? God, I love it, when characters are defined by props.
Louise: Hey, at least my hat is iconic. Besides, this bunny rabbit hat makes me look super cute.
Chris: It makes you look like you work at the playboy mansion.
Meg: Where'd you get that hat anyway? The 2017 Women's march?
Linda: Hey, don't insult my daughter's hat!
Meg: Sure, let's move onto your voice then. It's annoying.
Stewie: You sound like every grandma character played by Adam Sandler.
Peter: Your show is the worst, most poorly written, unfunny, sloppily animated, shameless Simpsons wannabe knock off show that I have ever seen, and I'm the main character of Family Guy.
Bob: I kinda feel like this is less of a crossover and more of a roast?
Peter: No, a roast is good-natured.
Linda: Oh, so this guy's insulting us.
Gene: Well, two can play at that game!
Louise: Yeah! Let's see how you like it, when it happens to you!
Peter: Sure, go ahead. You've got twenty seconds. Go.
Bob: Well, I'll have you know. Bob's Burgers is one of the greatest shows of it's generation. Bob's Burgers speaks to a younger audience and has managed to garner a loving and dedicated fanbase from Generation X and millennials, alike. We don't rely too heavily on the low brow humor from your show, and we certainly don't make offensive jokes. Bob's Burgers is original, intelligent, beautiful, and absolutely intelligent. Way better than shows like Family Guy will ever be. We hate it when we're compared to your show, because frankly, we're nothing alike, and we want to make sure we're as distant from your show as can be, so that we may truly show how much different and far better we are than you. For shame, Family Guy, for shame.
Peter: Well, if you wanna be distanced from us, I'll just call to have your time slot moved to Saturdays.
Peter: Oh? And why not?
Bob: [sigh] Cuz after people are done watching The Simpsons, they're going to be forced to watch us, while waiting for the new Family Guy.
Peter: Oh, but you guys have garnered such a fanbase. You're better than us. You don't need The Simpsons and Family Guy. If you don't have our shows to help you, you'll do just fine in ratings, right?
[The Belcher Family pauses awkwardly and a few members down at the ground in shame]
Peter: [sarcastic] Thanks for killing The Cleveland Show, ya bastards.


  • The title of this episode is a reference to "trans-fats", which are a kind of unhealthy ingredient in junk foods, that make you fat if you eat too much of this. This joke makes perfect sense in the plot, because it's about a fat guy becoming a transgender.
  • Pawtucket Brewery gives transgender employees a "benefit package" which includes:
    • Supplimental time off
    • A 20% pay raise
    • Access to the transgender bathroom
    • Right to use the Pawtucket Brewery hot tub
    • A personal butler
    • Access to the Pawtucket Brewery mini-bar
    • Access to the MolsonCoors Brewery mini-bar
    • An on sight masseuse
    • Superior treatment over other employees
    • A $60 gift card from Nordstrom Rack
  • Peter has a cement imprint of his butt in the bathroom at the Pawtucket Brewery.
  • Meg has a habit of killing people, while wearing a wedding dress.
  • Part of this episode takes place on Principal Shepherd's birthday.
  • Bonnie kissed Chris at a barbecue party.
  • It's revealed that The Drunken Clam has an "outside" seating area.
  • Ida gives us a lot of insight to her backstory. She grew up in Football, Texas and knew she was a woman in a man's body, since she was 14. She got her surgery, when she was 61.
  • List of people, who donated to Peter's Dickstarter.
  • It's revealed that Peter's penis size in 4 inches, though it's not explained whether this is for when it's flaccid or erect. Nevertheless, Peter's female to male surgery gives him a new 6 inch penis.
  • Peter detransitioned from a transwoman back into a man. This included him getting his fully functioning male reproductive system back. Not that it matters, but in reality, this is impossible. Once you surgically remove your reproductive system, it is impossible to transition again or undo the process. The only way to have a functioning reproductive system, is to be born with it.
  • This episode received a lot of backlash and negative controversy, not for it's offensive portrayal of transgender people, but because of how it insulted Bob's Burgers. Numerous single women in their late 40's, loud-mouthed brassy overweight divorcees, and ultra-liberal Tumblr users chastised Family Guy for making fun of their favorite show, by literally making a fully canonical crossover episode with it and not only squandering the cast's screen time until the very end, but also shitting all over the entire show in general.
    • The creator of Bob's Burgers, himself, Loren Bouchard commented on this, as did the entire voice cast, featured in the episode, saying that they were perfectly fine with Family Guy making fun of their show, as they knew it was all in good fun. In fact, that's the reason, why the voice actors literally performed in the actual crossover. Loren also later stated something along the lines of "The joke's on Family Guy, because in this crossover, their show's writers and voice actors had to do most of the work." He also hinted at plans in the future for Bob's Burgers to make fun of Family Guy back.

    • "LGTE" stands for "Lucene Geographic and Temporal", which is an "information retrieval tool", whatever the hell that is.
    • "GED" stands for "General Education Development," which is like a kind of college diploma. Stewie notes that this is unrelated.

  • Peter starts a funding page for his female to male transgender surgery on a Kickstarter parody called "Dickstarter".
  • At the end of the episode, everybody who Peter pissed off, while he was a woman, and didn't get hit by, came to the hospital, right after he detransitioned and punched him one by one. The screen panned over to reveal an ensemble cast, waiting in a line, to punch him, some of them wielding weapons. This was a reference to a scene from Airplane, where a series of people did this to a stewardess.
  • This is a crossover episode with "Bob's Burgers".
    • Despite this being passed off as a crossover episode, nothing Bob's Burgers related happens until the very end of the fourth act, when The Belcher Family shows up, only to make some unfunny jokes and get insulted by The Griffin Family.
  • Chris compares Louise's bunny hat to the hats worn by the bunny girls at the Playboy mansion.
  • Meg compares Louise's bunny hat to the Pussyhats worn by women at the 2017 Women's March.

  • Bob admits that the only reason people watch their show is because it's wedged between Family Guy and The Simpsons.
