Glenn Quagmire, often referred to as just Quagmire, is a character from the animated television series Family Guy. Quagmire is a neighbor and friend of the Griffin family. He is best known for his hypersexuality.[3] Creator and voice actor Seth MacFarlane describes Quagmire as "an appalling human being who is still caught in the rat-pack era" based on anachronistic 1950s party-animal clichés.[4] His neighbor and friend Peter Griffin describes him as a "heartless sex hound" and refers to him as "a rapist" in The Cleveland Show.[5] By profession, Quagmire is an airline pilot.

Origins and appearance

The name Quagmire was chosen by a college acquaintance of MacFarlane's;[4] the word quagmire refers to both a soft soil that yields easily (such as quicksand), and a situation that is difficult to get out of. The title of the infidelity-themed episode "The Cleveland–Loretta Quagmire" plays on the second meaning. MacFarlane came up with Quagmire's voice after listening to fast-talking radio jockeys from the 1950s era, describing the character as a "50s radio guy on coke."[4] The "giggity" phrase was inspired by Steve Marmel's Jerry Lewis impression.[6] Quagmire's home follows the same retro theme, decked out in a style reminiscent of the swinging party set of the 1950s and '60s; nearly every part of the house has a discreetly hidden bed.[7] Quagmire drives a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible, which Peter later destroyed in "Airport '07" after he accidentally reversed his pickup truck into it.

In a DVD bonus feature, Seth MacFarlane singled out a line in the season two episode "Love Thy Trophy", in which Quagmire answers a one-night stand's question about his job with the words, "I have a question for you, too. Why are you still here?" as the moment where the character's over-sexed personality was crystallized.

Among other notable episodes: in "The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire", he has sex with Cleveland Brown's wife, Loretta, which ends their marriage; and in "Jerome is the New Black", he says he despises the Griffin family dog, Brian, igniting a mutual animosity that develops over several episodes.

Sexual appetites

Quagmire is characterized as indulging in several sexual fetishes, from frotteurism and autoerotic asphyxia to bestiality and incest. He is also an implied rapist; several episodes feature gags in which he has sex with women who are unconscious. Quagmire has been described by other characters as "a heartless sex hound".
