Episode Recap: When Quagmire assumes responsibility for a baby who looks just like him , he quickly realizes he is in over his head.
This may seem like nothing, but were surprised (read: horrified) when Quagmire, the pervy-est character ever imagined, decides to name his child Analee. For those of you who don't know, AJ and I spent a lot of time discussing names that were not too common - and finally decided on the same name as the character who has wonderful moments like this:
"Hello, 911? It's Quagmire. Yeah, it's caught in the window this time."
(Analee- and any variation of- do not even register on the Social Security Baby name list) Of course, the predictable jokes ensure; Quagmire trying to score while the baby cries and of course an "Anal-ee" comment or two. (Luckily we have decided on the less joke-inspiring spelling of "Annaleigh")
I thought that perhaps AJ would find this to be a sign that we picked the best baby name ever (he laughs at Quagmire so hard I think he might pee himself), but he showed remarkable paternal feeling, and was appal ed by the whole thing. Thank goodness Quagmire comes to his senses and gives the poor child up for adoption- only to end the show with, "Maybe I'll see her again in 18 years...giggidy, giggidy". Yuck.
In case you haven't been lucky enough to witness the chub that is now my belly, here is a brief pictorial summary of the past almost 8(!!!!!) months! I actually thought this qualified as a belly - lets say my perspective has changed.
During the "That girl needs to lay off the wings" stage.
The "I think she is pregnant, but I don't want to get hit if I ask her when she is due" stage.
Whoa! How brave am I to put a bare belly pic on the Internet?
