The internet exploded with outrage three weeks ago when Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane killed off beloved family dog Brian from the show. Last night, though, all was set right in Quahog thanks to a baby with a time machine.

Brian’s death was among the most emotional in the run of the show, the canine telling his family “You’ve given me a wonderful life” before passing. The Griffins, bastions of sensitivity that they are, immediately replaced their deceased canine with Vinny, voiced by The Sopranos’ Tony Sirico. 

That, of course, was not something the internet liked. So, in last night’s episode, baby Stewie made use of his time machine to travel back to the moment when Brian was cut down by a passing car and rescue his friend. In the words of Seth McFarlane, take it as a lesson that “those you love for granted … can be gone in a flash.”

Unless, of course, you’ve got a time machine handy. Check out the clip below:
