American Dad! Season 3 Episodes

16 Episodes 2007 - 2008

Season 3 of the animated misadventures of CIA operative Stan Smith and his family kicks off with Francine demanding that Stan take the family on a vacation after she learns all of their previous vacations never actually happened: The CIA had planted artificial memories of the "vacations" in their brains so Stan could ditch them. Other notable outings feature Stan praying for a friend and having one provided: a guy named Brett (voice of Jay Thomas) who's like him in every way but one---he's an atheist. So Stan has some evangelizing to do; and with Francine out of town, Roger takes the opportunity to host spring break at the Smith house for visiting college students, one of whom becomes the straying Stan's "spring-break buddy."
