in "Lottery Fever", Paquin appears as her character Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood when Peter Griffin makes Joe Swanson locate boob scenes in the show. However, Peter objects to Paquin's appearance, claiming it doesn't count, causing an on-screen protest from Paquin during an episode of True Blood.
