Another Unexpected Literary Reference spotting, this one from Season 9, Episode 4 (“Stan Time”) of the amazing series American Dad. the screenshots below don’t translate the humor very well, so if you can find a full version of the episode online. Basically, Stan has been trying to read The Hunt for Red October for years, but is never able to get past the first paragraph. In this sequence, he still doesn’t make it.
Men- Lead household, care about money, being reckless, drinking, and women, spend free time doing illegal things behind wives back ( basically supports negative stereotypes of men) Women- if they are not ugly they are dumb, hyper sexualized, do all the nurturing and cleaning.
