The Splendid Source is the twentieth episode of the eighth season of Family Guy, and the one hundred forty-seventh episode overall.
In an episode based on a short story by sci-fi legend Richard Matheson, Peter, Quagmire and Joe hear a dirty joke and become obsessed with finding the origin of the joke. Their journey takes them to a couple of Quahog denizens, including Drunken Clam owner Horace and Bruce, and also to Futurama's Bender (in a cameo), before they find themselves in Virginia and reunited with old friend Cleveland. Lois and Bonnie, who thought their husbands were taking them to Florida, are instead left at the Brown's home in Virginia, while the boys continue their quest. Eventually, they're taken captive by men dressed like government agents (three-piece suits and sunglasses) and taken to a mysterious island, where they find what they've been looking for...the source of all jokes, with writers aplenty working hard. Their captors, however, have no intention of letting them leave the island to tell what they've seen.
