"Stuck Together, Torn Apart" is the 19th episode of the third season of the American animated series Family Guy, guest starring Jennifer Love Hewitt as herself.

Plot summary[edit]

At a warehouse club, Lois runs into an old boyfriend of hers named Ross Fishman who invites her out. Peter, growing suspicious, uses Joe's police surveillance van to spy on them. He becomes extremely jealous of Fishman, and Lois becomes frustrated with this, so the two go to couples' therapy, where they are advised to go on a trial separation, during which they should try to date other people.

Peter moves out of the house and stays with Mort Goldman's family and ends up dating his niece, who turns out to be Jennifer Love Hewitt, while Lois goes on a date with Quagmire, and both couples end up at the same restaurant on the same night. Despite her disgust towards Peter and his unpleasant antics, Hewitt becomes extremely attracted to him. Lois then unexpectedly displays her own jealous rage, and violently drives Hewitt away. Now that Lois can finally understand how Peter can get so envious, the two decide to live with their mutually jealous natures. Quagmire and Hewitt hook up, with Quagmire ending the episode by ordering a "roofie colada".

Meanwhile, Stewie finds a bottle of industrial adhesive and tries to eat some, but is stopped by Brian, whose hand is instantly joined to Stewie's. The two spend the rest of the episode trying to hide their predicament until the release solvent arrives. As the instructions state it will take effect within an hour after applying, the two decide to take a walk to pass the time. Minutes before the glue is to dissolve, Stewie and Brian discover a little girl stuck in a deep well. Brian lowers Stewie into the well and they manage to rescue her with seconds to spare. Despite the glue being gone, the two decide to hold hands on the way home.
