Lois gives Peter grief for eating raw cookie dough. At work, Peter is bored while sitting through a meeting until his stomach starts to give him trouble and he soils himself trying to get to the restroom. When he walks into the house, he is greeted by his friends and family and is told that his mother has died of a stroke. After the funeral, the family sorts though Thelma's belongings when Thelma's friend Evelyn stops by and offers to catch up with Peter later. Visiting with her in her at the retirement village, her company comforts Peter. Evelyn meets with Peter's friends at the Clam but they are disturbed by her and bolt. When they admit feeling comfortable around each other, Evelyn plants a kiss on Peter which shakes him up.
Peter tells Lois about what happened and is told to talk things over with her. She dismisses it as an effect of her medicine but when they spend the day together her antics take on a decidedly sexual theme and Peter demands they quit seeing each other. Peter goes to visit the grave of his mother and Evelyn meets him there, telling him that he is the first man to pay attention to her since her own husband died. But when they hug, Peter snaps her back, killing her as he leaves her with the cemetery groundskeeper to take care of.
At Thelma's funeral, Stewie is surprised to learn that he will someday die himself. Stewie finds himself unable to sleep that night and confesses that he is afraid of dying. To reassure Stewie, Brian takes him around to various religious institutions to get their take on death. Stewie is unsatisfied with the answers he gets and tries to find the solution on his own. Things are made worse when Brian admits his own belief that there is nothing after death and decides to take his own life first. He tries to kill himself by various means including hanging and death by cop as well as dropping a toaster in the bathtub which only gives him super powers. Brian finds him trying to jump out a window and stops him, telling him he shouldn't be afraid of living at the moment. Stewie considers becoming a singer-song writer and Brian pauses, but when Stewie calls him on it, he agrees to sit though his act. But when Stewie starts to sing, Brian can't go though with it and tells him to kill himself.
