Comparison between the TV Version and the extended DVD Version (both included in the DVD Box "Volume 6").
2 new scenes (one of them offers alternative footage)
+ 1 auditory censorship
Difference: 30.5 sec
Family Guy is a very successful show aired on FOX. Since some jokes are simply too rude to air them on national television, the producers have to censor/cut scenes from time to time. However, they sometimes also cut some jokes away in order to reach the appropiate length for a TV-episode. Therefore, not all the changes that were made are a result of censorship. Nevertheless there still are enough hilarious, outrageous jokes in the show - fans will be in for a good time, weven when watching the TV Version on FOX. (I'm speaking from experience.)
BTW, it airs every sunday evening on FOX. That's really nice because you can also watch the new American Dad episode as well as the new episode of The Cleveland Show. So you've got a terrific triple feature. If you're watching FOX anyway, you can also watch the latest Simpsons episode. After all, what's better than spent your whole evening laughing your ass of while watching the latest episodes of the series by Seth MacFarlane plus some new adventures of Homer & Co?
The 16th episode of the 5th season - "No Chris Left Behind" - includes 3 altered parts. One of them includes 2 new scenes at once - the second scene of these newer ones was in the TV Version replaced with more harmless alternative footage.
Additionally there's an auditory censorship - during the phone conversation, Quagmire's words are a little more explicit (since you only see Peter they didn't have to include any different animations this time).
Time index refers to the TV Version.
Quagmire's explanations on the phone to why he's going to watch a ballet performance was a little mitigated for the TV Version.
TV: "I got dragged here by this broad I'm trying to nail."
DVD: "I got dragged here by this broad I'm trying to screw."
No difference in time.
After Chris went to Lois to complain about not being able to learn today, the DVD Version at first offers a short new scene, followed by a completely alternative scene. Chris' textbook dates back to another year (which is the origin of the ruder joke in the DVD Version).
Peter text messages. Then Chris looks on his mobile phone, reads the SMS and comments it by saying: "Yeah, right in her ass!"
Lois sighs before Brian grabs Chris' book.
Brian: "Well, Chris, you're not gonna learn any history from this. This textbook is from 1896."
Lois asks "What?" and Brian reads aloud: "Chapter 3: Here comes Utah."
Lois takes the book herself and skims through it: "Let me see that. Negroes: America's Dancin'est Rapefolk. That's awful, we don't use the word 'negro' anymore."
In the TV Version Brian directly grabs the book and says: "Well, Chris, you're not gonna learn any history from this. This textbook is from 1948."
Brian: "Chapter 3: Youth culture rebels with Big Band Music."
Lois takes the book herself and skims through it: "Let me see that. Israel. The brand new country that everyone's going to love."
DVD Version 10.5 sec longer
Chris says something after Lois promised to talk to her father. Then follows a typical Family Guy flashback.
Chris: "Good, 'cause I haven't been this miserable since I had to throw Rocky Balboa out of the Shamrock Meat Company."
That's exactly what you see.Chris says to Rocky: "Look, I'm sorry, I can't have you in here punching the meat. I mean, there's really not too many things you can't do in here, but that is one of them."
Rocky: "What about Paulie? He's having sex with the meat."
The camera pans to Paulie who's lying in a pile of meat and says "Hey, Rock, I'm porking it!"
Rocky: "That's a good one."
