“I mean, you didn’t really think we’d kill off Brian, did you?”

– Seth MacFarlane on bringing the”Family Guy” dog, Brian, back to life; he reappeared on Sunday night episode (Stewie travels back in time to save his beloved dog) after being apparently killed off a couple weeks ago. MacFarlane tweeted some other things, too, but none we can print in a family newspaper. Wow, did those change.org petitioners who rallied against the death of Brian really have an impact? Not so much — production on cartoons is done months in advance. MacFarlane also ended on a somber, if thoughtful, note, adding: “Never take those you love for granted, for they can be gone in a flash.”
