Peter Griffin is the overweight patriarch of Family Guy.  Peter is voiced by the show's creator, Seth McFarlane.

Peter, of questionable intelligence and ambition, somehow manage to land the beautiful, intelligent, and wealthy Lois.  Hey, I guess that's why they call it television.

Although Peter's best friend is definitely his talking dog, Brian, he also has his great drinking buddies, Quagmire, Joe and Cleveland, who he gets into all sorts of zany adventures with.

Peter Griffin Quotes

Dennis Miller: I don't wanna go on a rant here, but America's foreign policy makes about as much sense as Beowolf having sex with Robert Fulton at the first Battle of Antietam. I mean when a neo-conservative defenstrates it's like Raskolnikov filibuster deoxymonohydroxinate.
Peter: What the hell does rant mean?

Bill Clinton: All right, are you ready for another round of N.A.F.T.A
Lois Griffin: What does N.A.F.T.A. mean?
Bill Clinton: 'Nother Afternoon of F****** That Ass!

Hi, I'm Wilford Brimley and I have diabetes. It hurts me to pee and it causes me to be short with my family. I can't sleep at night. The other day I stubbed my toe and took it out on the dog. And two weeks ago I ran out of vanilla ice cream and struck my wife. Then I find out my wife has been dead for six years. Who the hell did I hit?
