That and Makeva having "Stockholm Syndrome" because she was "kind of a crazy chick" after Steve did everything to rescue her was a really dick move.

Seriously! This "running gag" grinds my gears, it's not a running gag, it's not even funny, why is it when Steve meets a girl he likes, something happens and he loses her in the most unfair way and it gets sadder and sadder each time it happens.

The worst examples were in "A Jones for a Smith" and "Virtual In-Stanity" I mean if this keeps up then I will have no choice but to stop watching American Dad and stick with Family Guy, Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, and Cleveland Show when I remember what time it comes on.

I can think of two other stupid ways Steve loses the girl...
1. Girl gets randomly struck by lightning and turns to ash.
2. Girl leans in for a kiss, then is erased by the animator's pencil.

one thing I hate about Steve as a character is that he just your typical Hollywood teenage geek. who's only priorities are to go after girls who out of his league, humiliate him self by do things even he's aware his not good at, and trying to gain popularity by being idiotic. seriously if they want to make him interesting or relatable they should least have learn from his past experiences.

Now that you described Steve that way it now became perfectly clear... HE'S A BIG A IDIOT AS HIS FATHER! I mean you mention Steve never learns from his past experiences... Stan made it clear that "he never learns lessons" and I still wonder why unless it's a pride issue. I guess stupid must run in Stan's family.

over all it's because Stan sees his own short comings and failures in Steve that he either sees or sow in himself at his sons' age. which is interesting because Stan's' own father was never around whale he was growing up, so could he understand what a real man is actually like when he father figure to up himself. the problem with Stan as with other cartoon characters is he never really grow up.

So this explains why he thought a baby's umbilical cord is beef jerky, fire island is a island on fire, and it took him a season to realize that Greg and Terry are gay? I know Peter Griffin is "legally retarded" but this makes me question Stan's way of thinking. I recently came up with a disturbing theory that Stan doesn't want to be a grandfather which explains he killed Glitter (Steve thinks of her as his daughter), c*ckblocks Steve as he ruins his chances with girls, and he hates Hailey's choice in guys like Jeff and that one boyfriend just because he's black.

I hate anything Seth MacFarlane makes. He's untalented and unfunny.

This really sums up the problem I've had with the show and a few others
they always have these things in the main and subplots but they resolve it by the end of the episode
would it really be that hard for the writers to establish these things as a part of the series canon, keep it in memory and write around it or make plots centered around it
how difficult would it be?
the one line from the family guy episode "Family Gay" sums up how most episodes of several shows end. Meg just asks flatout "so what, we're just going to pretend that didn't happen?"
its like when the Simpsons ends with a big problem unresolved and its never brought up again or explained how it was fixed
homer owns the Denver broncos- no follow up
moe rescues the kids from being stuck on an island- never explained how, no follow up
the road to Doh'where ends with both Homer and Marge in jail and Bart is lost in Nevada and Lisa has to support whats left of the family, there's never been a follow up explaining how everything was fixed

why establish anything in these shows if the sole purpose half the time is to fix it by the end of the episode and reset for next time, why make the bed if your not gonna lie in it,but instead just buy a new mattress and sheet set the next day
