Roger's Disguise: Francine from "All About Steve"


After an argument between Stan and Francine breaks out about moving her family to Langley Falls, Francine storms off to collect her thoughts to Terry and Greg's confusion as they've heard the same argument before. Stan arrives and suggests they go see a counselor, who hypnotizes Francine and clears her memory of any controversial issues she raised with Stan in the past. Another year passes and Francine finds herself storming over to Terry and Greg's again. But when Stan who has constantly ignored the therapist's request for a sandwich while he goes out does so once again, the therapist unleashes all of Francine's repressed memories.

Stan tries to seek shelter in his room of collector plates and Francine remembers that it used to be her room. She finds an old videotape of her stand-up comedy routine and it reawakens her lifelong dream of being a comedian. With Roger as her agent, she begins working a series of comedy strip clubs with her material about being a Caucasian adopted by Asians until she gets a chance to show her stuff in front of some FOX executives. Stan tries to sabotage her by making her nervous, causing her to throw up during her introduction. Stan leaves happily thinking his work was done only to find out Francine recovered and managed to land a sitcom deal. As Francine prepares for her big moment, Stan is dejected until Klaus convinces him to change for her and he rushes to her show and they make up.


As they and the cast of the show settle in to watch the premier, the show is cut after one joke that causes an uproar in the Asian community causing them to cancel their plans of moving to Hollywood. When Francine brings up moving her family once again, Stan takes a deep breath ready to hear Francine out which she relieves him by agreeing it would be a bad idea.

Meanwhile, Steve brings home a potential love interest for Klaus from a carnival. Klaus is excited to have a companion for awhile but soon becomes bored. He eventually drags off her body rolled up in a piece of carpet.
