Family Guy & Marlee Matlin

Family Guy voices Seth MacFarlane and Alex Borstein mocked Marlee Matlin during a skit on Family Guy Presents Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show. The half-hour special aired last night on the Fox network. The routine involved pretending Matlin is calling Moviefone! and the automated system cannot recognize what she is trying to say followed by a segment where Matlin attempts to sing pop songs but can't fully pronouce the words. But what was especially unexpected is that Matlin herself made an appearance. She then made fun of Alex Borstein who was pretending to do her voice, including some fat jokes and an offer to teach Borstein some sign language. Here's the clip with unfortunately no captions.
