[S11E18] When I Grow Up
April tells the kids about trauma. The kids notice when a cop car pulls up outside. Dan Pruitt brings in Brett Gibson, who was shot in the neck during a robbery. Julie Hamilton, another one of the kids, watches in amazement before she is led away with the other kids.
Owen asks Pete how he's doing and he says he's thinking about going for a run. His mother says he's always the wise guy. He reminds her of a previous trip to the ER and says nothing changes. He needs to learn to duck. He shares another memory with his mom of a pot luck they had with the guys. He says when they get out of there, they need to do that again, but with more people. Pete arrests and they take his mom out of the room so they can work on him.
Derek is scrubbing in for surgery when Owen comes in. He was expecting Amelia and is surprised to see Derek instead. Derek explains what he's doing. He says he hasn't operated in months and it feels good to be back. Derek says they should hang out more and asks if Owen fishes. Owen says he never has, so Derek says he should and they will.
Derek finds Amelia out on the porch. He says it's cold and she says it's quiet. She says ever since he's been back, they've been extra loud. He should have built thicker walls. He asks if she's okay. There was a robbery, two shooting, and she declared two men dead. He kept thinking about their dad and wants to know if she's okay. She says she's happy for Derek, being back and making it work, not running. They're runners. She ran from her engagement. He ran from Addison. After their dad, when something scares them, they sprint as fast as they can, but he turned around this time, so she's inspired. He asks if their mom told her he went to go see her. She didn't. Amelia asks how it went. He says she told him he was tired and miserable and to get it together. She told him to look at his life and if it wasn't working, to shut up and fix it. He's been missing out on his life. He was watching his kids grow up on a computer. He doesn't want to miss another second. He wants to coach soccer and go to ballet recitals. He doesn't need to change the world. Clipping aneurysms, stopping bleeds, that's the fun. That's changing the world with their hands. He wonders when that stopped being enough, saving someone's life. He says it's more than enough. Amelia says she's glad he's back. She tells him she's falling for Owen and she's afraid it might destroy her. He says it wouldn't be love it if didn't.
Brett was shot in the neck and abdomen during a robbery. They put in a crike to keep him breathing and took him into surgery. They repaired his injuries and were about to close when he had a stroke. He was pronounced brain dead. His organs were harvested for transplant. His liver went to Jared.
Jared, 15, was shot multiple times in his abdomen. He was intubated and they put in a central line in the ER. He had blood in his abdomen due to a liver injury. One of the bullets had hit his spine, but didn't damage his cord. Amelia told Bailey it was her call over whether to remove it or leave it. His liver was too damaged to be saved, so they removed it and continued to work as they waited for a liver to come through. There weren't any livers available, but when the two cop brothers were pronounced brain dead, their mother agreed to do a directed donation and he got Brett's liver. He survived the surgery and was stable afterward.
It's fun to witness these strong characters interact with characters who may only appear for the episode but they bring a lot of personality to work with when it comes to the dialogue. The way Bob interacts with the situation is both honest and pure at heart. He's a humble person and someone we could see ourselves in if we ever were in that situation.

After several discussions with Dr. Herman, April and Jackson must face their situation head on and make a difficult decision regarding their unborn child.

The crossover consisted of American Dad!, King of the Hill, and Family Guy characters. It starts in Quahog when the Griffins visit their new neighbors, the Smiths (from American Dad!), living in Cleveland's old house. Peter is then shot by Stan Smith for revealing Roger's identity to Quagmire. Peter then wakes up in his bed and discovered it was a dream. At that moment, Hank walks into the bedroom questioning, "Hey, Lois, what's that fat man doing in our bed?" Next, the scene cuts to Hank waking up in his bed saying, "Ugh, damn it, I always wake up before I find out if they can understand the baby." The episode opens with a King of the Hill-styled opening involving Quagmire, Peter, Joe, and Brian replacing Boomhauer, Hank, Bill, and Dale at their respective spots in "The Alley".
Two months later, the Search and Rescue Party nearly gives up the search when signs of Peter start to turn up. The family rushes to where Peter left a doll of Edna Garrett from The Facts of Life (though Chris also reminds everyone that Edna Garrett was first seen in Diff'rent Strokes) and find him in the bushes acting like a nonspeaking feral beast with long hair, a long beard, a partially muddy body, and wearing what's left of his underwear.
Getting Peter home, they try to reintroduce him to his life. Lois then shows Peter a video that he made before he became feral. When it comes to the second tape, the Peter on that tape tells Peter not to listen to the Peter on the first video since that Peter is lying and tells Peter to be free as he runs out of the house. Stewie tries to make the best of things by singing with Peter where he grunts to the tunes of "War" and "Baby Got Back." Lois awakes to find Peter in the garbage. Quagmire and Joe come over to check on things and find that every attempt to re-civilize Peter did not go well. The Griffin family decides to return Peter to the wild to be happy. As Lois and the family cries at their departure, Peter heads off towards the woods. But when Meg says goodbye, Peter struggles to tell Meg to shut up and slowly regains his speech. Peter and Lois embrace, he then tells her "Jim. Your name is Jim" (an allusion to the end of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock).
Dean, Sam, and Crowley are still arguing over when to trap Lucifer when Sam sees a message burned into a rusted cabinet that reads "BACK FROM THE DEAD, FERGUS!" Soon they are in an abandoned church with Rowena, preparing to summon Lucifer and expel him out of Castiel. They set up angel suppressing sigils inside an angel trap with a ring of holy oil around it and Dean recites a spell, summoning Lucifer. When Lucifer appears in the center of the sigil, Sam lights the holy oil, creating a ring of holy fire around Lucifer and trapping him. Dean slices his hand and activates the sigil drawn on the table, causing Lucifer to temporarily lose control of the vessel. Castiel converses briefly with Dean, but he fades away again before Dean can convince him to expel Lucifer.
Dean: Well, that's what he wanted though, right? Besides, didn't we say that we're gonna swear off getting in the way when one person makes a choice the other didn't agree with?Sam: Yeah, um. Yeah, we did say that.Dean: So...Sam: Okay. So, that's our policy.
