Lois lives at 31 Spooner Street with her family and also Brian , the anthropomorphic family dog. Lois is voiced by Alex Borstein. At the time series creator Seth MacFarlane approached her for a role on the show, she was doing a live stage show in Los Angeles, playing a redhead mother in a sketch.
The voice style was modeled after one of her cousins' voice. They also have a long-lost older brother, Patrick , who was sent to a mental asylum after he became a serial killer. She met Peter when he was employed as a towel boy by her aunt.
Her rich father, Carter Pewterschmidt , cannot stand Peter and makes rude comments at every chance he gets. Peter seems to unintentionally do his absolute best to be a thorn in her side. She also alludes to have studied at Kent State University. Lois is currently a full-time-mom and spends most of the working day caring for Stewie, cleaning the house and cooking food for her family.
However, she is also a piano teacher on the side to supplement the family income. Age She is currently She is reportedly two years younger than Peter as claimed in " Let's Go to the Hop ". However, this is slightly skewed by both Lois and Peter are 18 in " Meet the Quagmires " although only Brian's exclamation that she is 18 supports this.
Peter's age was later revised to 42 in " Underage Peter ". Personality Though initially appearing to be a typical doting house wife and ideal mother, Lois has many dark aspects to her and in some cases be worse than her husband, except without the excuse of mild retardation. Several times Lois has forced Peter to have intercourse with her, yet she sees nothing wrong with this as she believes men can not be forced to have sex. She has made it clear several times that she never wanted to be a mother.
In " A Fish out of Water " when her and Meg go on Spring Break, during the awkward car-ride she tells Meg that she took birth control but taking antibiotics made it not work, evidently causing Meg's birth. In " Peter's Daughter " she instructs Meg on how to have a miscarriage. Chris was also said to be the result of a broken condom in " Emission Impossible ", with the resulting lawsuit paying for the Griffin's house. Her one-year-old baby Stewie was very much intent on killing her, though it lessened out over the seasons.
Her relationship with Meg is a complicated one. She has a way of being supportive and destructive at the same time. When being hurtful, she is extremely caustic. It's been said in " Screwed the Pooch " that Meg is not really Peter's daughter, but her biological father is named Stan Thompson. Lois does show a slightly kinder side toward Meg in " Call Girl " when she refers to Meg by her real name while dismissing Chris and Stewie as "dummy and big-head.
Some examples being when Meg was upset about not being invited to a party hosted by Chris in " Stew-Roids ", she just gives up, gives her daughter some pills and a Sylvia Plath novel, walks out stating "whatever happens, happens".
Meg even stated she loved her in " Peter's Daughter ", only for Lois to not even respond. When Brian was leaving in " Quagmire's Dad ", she doesn't even look away from the television to state her goodbyes. Later in that episode when Quagmire was stating that his father wants a sex change operation, she leaves the room while stating "have fun at the circus.
When Brian needed dental surgery in " Brian the Closer " after having all of his teeth knocked out by Peter, she refused to allow good "people money" to be spent on him.
In " Jungle Love ", she also purposely drew attention to Chris so that he could be hazed on his first day of high school. And she gave Meg a school lunch in " Stew-Roids " consisting of nothing but food waste and a picture of herself eating a chicken leg. Sexual Orientation Although she admitted to only having a bisexual affair in college in " Partial Terms of Endearment ", there have been hints throughout the entire series showing Lois' latent bisexuality even if she does not actively pursue it currently: In " Stewie B.
In " Fifteen Minutes of Shame " she told Meg and her friends at Meg's slumber party that she used to practice French kissing with her friends. In " Stew-Roids " she lustfully rubbed sunscreen on Bonnie 's lower back for about 4 seconds. The two act awkward for about 5 seconds before passionately making out, thus shocking Joe, Peter, Brian and Quagmire and pleasing Cleveland.
Possible Death The age of 50 seems to be ominous for Lois. In " Lethal Weapons ", Stewie reveals that his first violent act was leaving a time bomb in Lois's uterus, followed by the quote "Happy 50th Birthday, Lois. Her body had to be completely rearranged and the doctors said she would be lucky if she lived to The Untold Story , apparently nullifying these events.
In " Petarded ", one scene shows Lois' brain tumor. Peter also reveals in " Turkey Guys " that Lois had a stroke that inhibited her from saying "Jack Robinson.
Lois had relationships with other men, especially those associated with s rock bands, such as J. She used to be a circus freak, apparently a dwarf like creature, who used a trampoline and shouted "Me likey bouncy!
It was later annulled upon Peter's return. She was selected for an Olympic diving team, but ended up being pregnant with Meg instead. She later became pro-choice. She is very ticklish. Peter tackled her in one episode and tickled her until she was screaming for mercy. She hates the sound of squeaking plastic wrap. She considers herself Protestant but is technically ethnically Jewish, something that both her father-in-law, Francis Griffin , a devout Roman Catholic, and father, Carter Pewterschmidt bitterly resent.
Lois became a black belt in Tae-Jitsu in " Lethal Weapons ". As written into the episodes, Lois has had possibly eight children: She tries to be friends with other women, but fails occasionally as in " And Then There Were Fewer ". She has an eponymous song dedicated to her, which was first performed in " Emission Impossible ", on the night that she and Peter attempted to have a fourth child. In " Family Gay " Peter reveals that Lois is a size four.
She reveals in " And I'm Joyce Kinney " that she starred in a pornographic film in her college days. In " Deep Throats " it was revealed that she played in a band with Peter named "A Handful of Peter", in which she played the mandolin. Peter claims Lois lost a fetus when they visited the museum of staircases and spring-loaded boxing gloves in " Burning Down the Bayit ".
Although her job as a piano teacher had not been referenced for several seasons, it was mentioned in " Yug Ylimaf ". Lois' resume also only lists her as a housewife since without any mention of her job as a piano teacher. Lois claims she used to bowl back when she attended college in " Total Recall ".
