Dan Povenmire , who became a director on Family Guy during the series' second season,  took a more prominent role in directing by the third season, having directed five episodes. Creator Seth MacFarlane granted Povenmire substantial creative freedom. Povenmire recalled that MacFarlane would tell him "We've got two minutes to fill. Give me some visual gags. Do whatever you want. I trust you." Povenmire praised this management style for letting him "have [...] fun." Povenmire brought realism, and material from his own experiences, to the visual direction of Family Guy .   For " One If by Clam, Two If by Sea ",  several characters carried out fosse moves in prison — Povenmire went into the office of a color artist, Cynthia Macintosh, who had been a professional dancer, and had her strike poses in order for him to better illustrate the sequence.  In the episode " To Love and Die in Dixie "  Povenmire drew on his childhood in the deep south to sequence a background scene where the " redneck " character nonchalantly kicks a corpse into the nearby river .

Meg then becomes infatuated with Brian, going so far as to abduct him in order to have sex with him after he rejects her, but she does not seem to be interested in Brian after this episode.
