Loved this ep. Do schools really do Big Fish/Little Fish mentorships? 

My elementary school did a buddy thing where we 1st graders had a 6th grader to spend time with. It was fun.

My son has a book buddy for K-2 grade. 6th Graders with K, 5th graders with 1rst, and 4th graders with 2nd. I don't think that 3rd graders work with anyone.

I'm with Louise, Spirit Week always sucked.

Loved seeing Mort again. Love that everyone got squicked out at "UrnThis." He's a mortician, it was perfectly him.

Of course the most important part of looking for Wharfy is to buy a hat with a little anchor on it to wear on the boat.

Gene was once again great in this episode. Of course he'd go to school naked for Pajama Day, and his idea for 80s Day was to dress up as Shirley MacLaine from Steel Magnolias.

"You're the perfect amount of Nick Nolte's mugshot." I have to agree.

Bob's "Everythingness" daydream was amazing. I can't get over the image of the Bob Truck.

That was amazing. "Steel Magnolias" is probably my favorite movie. I bet Linda makes the kids watch the movie. Of course Gene likes it.

Loved Louise getting involved with the hunt for Wharfy. It's nice seeing her have fun.

I'd like to use "Great big bucket of bummer balls" in conversation some time.

Nice to see Louise have a bit of fun, as the search for Warfy continues! "Just four people looking for a sea monster...and a third husband for one of them..."

Of course Gene saw 80s Day and thought of Shirley MacLaine from Steel Magnolias! Oh Gene, you are a true treasure. 

The Bob truck with his giant Bob mustache was a true sight to see. I always love Bob talking to food and the food talking back, its probably my favorite running joke.

I liked seeing Louise make genuine friends outside of her little group and I liked that Tina totally picked up on what she was doing, but didn't make a big deal out of it. Gene remains outstanding, as usual.

I have been rewatching past seasons of Bob's Burgers (because I got myself the entire series on DVD for Christmas) and I remember us talking about how they haven't done an in-the-future episode and who people thought the kids would end up with. I'm still pulling for Tina and Zeke (seriously, she can't lose with Zeke, he's a gem), but I'm now rooting for Louise and Sasha to end up together. Regular Size Rudy wouldn't provide her with enough of a challenge and Logan is just an ass, so I'm pulling for Sasha. He's aloof, snobby, has a slightly mean streak but is still able to do the right thing (sometimes), and would not put up with Louise's crap. I think they could work.

I guess I have always assumed Louise will end up with Zeke.  Kind of a Little Women thing where Zeke pines for Tina but ends up with the love of his life in Louise.

They would be amazing together.  Just think of how he would complement and rein in her deviousness.

I think thinkTina ends up like her Aunt Gayle, living alone and painting butts for art crawl.  Or maybe she ends up with Darryl.

I don't recall an adventure of Louise on her own outside of the siblings. I did enjoy how the 'in' was their collective 'meh' at spirit week. I was the same way. I had way too much shit to get done than to worry about what to wear. 

The girls all wow-ing and going on about the diarrhea face was funny. 

The chef was ridiculous and Bob not knowing why the food wasn't getting him was very much Bob. It was a quick line but when Bob was lamenting about not getting the food, Linda chimed in with - you're a great cook, who cares? 

I don't know if I see Tina as Aunt Gayle because Tina is way forward and would just ask out boys. I think she's always be dating or just go through bfs. Whether they don't last is because she's too intense or she gets bored with them. 

I never thought of Zeke and Louise but I could totally see him running here and there to bail her out of her schemes - *Zeke voice* You're an adventure! Come'mere girl, getcha some hugs! heheheh

Or Louise never gets out of the boys are dumb phase and decides to date girls. Actually I could see her doing that anyway and then getting sick of girls. 

Gene is totally Linda and will marry a long suffering spouse but they like the same movies.

I just wonder if Gene switches sides. He's got a lot of...tendencies (not that there's anything wrong with that. The town they live in is a wonderfully open-minded place)

Bob sure has a well-developed fantasy life, what with all those inanimate things that talk to him.

As someone who use to watch that movie a lot, I cracked up at his "Shelby, drink your juice!"

I just love that Gene is so comfortable in his own skin, doing his own thing.

"I'm yawning at your awning!" is right up there with "They'll say 'aww Topsy' at your autopsy!" in terms of cleverness.

"Bob, you're like an Ewok!" Yep, it's all the hair.

I loved everyone's song, and I needed to hear Rudy's so bad and he didn't disappoint. Of course Jimmy Jr. and Zeke's song won. As it should have.

I love Jocelyn so much. Her Bring A Stranger had chicken in her pockets, dare I want to know more of that story?

I really need to see a Take a Stranger to Work Day. Jocelyn's had chicken in her pocket! 

That whaling song was horrifying, like god dang Wagstaff. The songs were all instant classics of course, including Tammy's, where she just lists every student at school kind of to music, and whatever it was that Rudy was going to do. Of course Zeke and Jimmy Jr when, with the best and most appropriate of all songs! "Dont tell your parents." 

The Bob and Jimmy plot was quite funny as well. "My eyesight has almost come back." *Runs into a plant.*

When they first showed Gene I thought he was dressed as a member of Dexy's Midnight Riders and now I have Come On Eileen stuck in my head.

Excuse me, but Louise Belcher is the future Mrs. Fischoelder. "I'm going to marry that man!" I totally believe Louise on that.

How old are Louise and Bob that the classic '80s' songs would be in their wheelhouse that they'd introduce their kids to it? Or are they older and more into disco and Blondie, etc.?

You know this show's been on for a while when someone asks if Gayle took Derby two minutes in. That's how Gayle got Mr. Business. I like Gayle, but only in short doses. Wanting everyone to take off their clothes to wear smocks is just so weird, even for her. But I'll admit I felt bad about her that the only person to sign up was a hit piece blogger (and then it turned out she wasn't one). I did get a laugh when Gayle rose out of the bushes behind Tina.

I liked the cat plot when Rudy showed up.

I know Bob is mild but sometimes he is absolutely justified if he yelled at the kids. I mean Louise and Gene were being terrible in the restaurant. He's really got to talk with Linda seriously about Gayle too.

I'm glad they're giving Bob some customers. A lot of the early episodes showed people in the restaurant.  They have to have some income beyond Mort and Teddy.

Poor Bob, his eternally long suffering "oh my Gods" whenever he knows his family and/or friends have gotten themselves into some new ridiculous situation never fails to crack me up. "Are you sure the cat isnt pranking us from the bathroom?"

Gails writers block song was surprisingly catchy!

Bob just couldn't win tonight. He just wanted plates. But I do like it when Bob meets people sadder than him. Jules loves beekeeping, but he's allergic to bees.

Man, the whole plot with the green meat was gross as hell. I remember the green ketchup craze, I didn't want to get reminded of it. I think this whole virus thing is getting to me, all that green food and congregating was making me worried for everyone's safety.

I liked that the kids wanted to go to the auction. 

It's was weird Linda and Teddy were so into the holiday. 

The idea for the sliders is actually good. I don't get why she wouldn't charge like two dollars or something. I didn't think they'd all come back so I'm glad Bob caught a break with more customers.

Poor Bob just wanted plates. Yeah they should probably just say the plates were cursed, that seems like a much easier explanation than...what actually happened.
