Bob's Burgers

Recommended Posts


I too had to google See you next Tuesday. I had no idea.

Who woulda thunk this would be such a sweet episode. Bob and Louise bonding over their phobia... or should I say preference?... was really nice. I love that the family has home-poopers and poop-anywheres. The stories about Linda were great -- Pooping in a bucket... at a wedding! Pooping in a portapotty that had fallen off a truck.

I actually have recurring dreams where I'm in a public restroom where there's something terrible. It might be that the floors are all wet, the toilets are full of shit, the stalls have no doors, the stall walls are about 2-ft high, and sometimes there's just a hole in the floor. 

Gene: No poop for you.

I cracked up when the annoying music playing when Bob took Louise to the aquarium was actually on the car radio.

BTW, Bob didn't actually get laxatives. He bought two stool softeners and some fiber powder.

Yeah I was side-eying him HARD on his supposed laxative knowledge. If they wanted Louise to poop before the trip that badly (and honestly there's not much of a difference between 4 and 5 days of constipation, I think her plan to just wait until after the aquarium wasn't the worst), she needed LAXATIVE laxatives. As in stay home all day until the trip because those 24 hours are gonna be productive but rough.

I would have NEVER rolled the dice with anything that worked over a longer period of time like the meds Bob bought Louise, with a school trip coming up. Rookie mistake, turning that poor kid into a poop time bomb.

Of course Tammy would love New York (even if she never actually went there because it smelled). And it doesn't surprise me one bit that Teddy would argue with a sports radio show enough to get banned from it.

"I WANT DRIFTWOOD DAMMIT." Tina got sassy tonight. But can you blame her? Linda just got too all into something again. Seriously, she scared Tina.

Man, Teddy's life is so sad it made Bob give him free food.

I liked Linda's adventure. Their town is cool. It was a good idea for the report!

I do love this show, but wow, the Teddy-centric storylines are just painful. What did the guy who voices him do, or whose compromising pictures does he have in a safe deposit box?

Linda on the jumping rocks got a little screechy, but everything else about that adventure was fun. And Linda's borrowed outfit had me wondering if I can pull off a strapless terry romper for lounging around home. She looked cute!

Feminine Denim Man. So perfect.

tbh, the recording of the song was better than just writing a report. None of the other students actually went out and did anything.

Aww their town is kind of cool! Its weird and probably smells like rotten fish, but its certainly never boring at least. Those houseboat people are fun! 

Man, Teddy's life really is sad, no wonder the radio guy let him start calling again out of pity. Bob even gave him a free pity burger, its all just so sad. 

"I like that eel." "Thats the snake." 

Tina singing New York New York is one of those things I never thought I needed, but as it turns out, I totally did.

Bob saying it was his turn to have the good pillow made me chuckle.

Linda: Look how she's not wearing shoes, like a beautiful Fred Flintstone.

Gene: We can talk the dingle off a berry.

Is he an electrician though? Because that is different, to be fair. I can buy that he thought the job might have been easy, or Teddy isn't high cost. Fixing Bob's light is a lot different from a gazebo though. 

I noted Tina also had Zeke in her story. 

Was Bob trying to get one over on Mr. Fischoelder? It seems like it would be a landloard's responsibilty to make repairs and especially electrical repairs. I thoght Bob might have been afraid of a rent increase.

That's likely.  Mr. Fischoelder is so cheap though that he could make Bob responsible for repairs.

I'm a little worried about the cab fare.  How long was he waiting at the houseboat town?

This made me think of something that happened to me once.

A bunch of us were out on our friend's boat and we had been swimming in the water. Afterward I put on a strapless top and took off my bikini top. Later in the day my bf at the time came up behind me and pulled my top down. For what seemed like a long time but was probably just a few moments my boobs were out there for everyone on the boat to see. I was mortified.

I don't know if Linda would be embarrassed if that happened. She pooped in a bucket.

Plus she flashed the camera to get Bob & Gene to stop fighting on TV in "Beefsquatch".

Bob and Linda met at a bar. Linda was with Ginger telling her a story, and she made a wide sweeping gesture with her hand just as Bob was passing by. Linda's engagement ring (from her very short engagement to Hugo) got caught in Bob's mustache, and for her at least it was lust at first sight. Linda really loves that mustache.

Yeah, no shock at all that Jimmy Pesto's only "friends" are Trev and Bob. And yeah, he had rad stuff like a bar, nunchuks, and a slot car set. Bob went full Seinfeld here. He drugged Jimmy then played with his toys. Making him laugh until it hurts was a pretty good comeuppance. He's sad.

Oh my god was Kaylee a special type of lame. Like, Regular-Size Rudy is more of a rebel than she is (and OF COURSE he's a Thinkgineer)

See you all in the fall...whenever that'll be.

Hey, was Mr. Fischoeder in this season AT ALL?

I didn't like the episode where Tina went nuts about the mentoring, but I liked the callback.

I'll be honest, I was cracking up just reading the description of the ep on my guide: "Bob reluctantly brings Jimmy Pesto his hernia medication." There's no part of that sentence I don't love.

"Your just like Matt Damon in The Departed!" Looks like Gene got a hold of the Netflix password! 

Of course Rudy is a Thinkaneer. Kayla was such a dork that she made Rudy look like a bad kid, so I am glad she found her place and that Louise had her back, in a Louise kind of way. 

Not surprising that Jimmy Pesto has no one to call for help except for his employee and his arch rival, Jimmy Pesto is such a dick that he cant even be bothered to remember he has kids.

Thinkgineer. Rudy is on a higher level of thinking than a mere thinkaneer. I'm not even going to capitalize it.

I don't like Jimmy Pesto, but I don't think I'd trust Jimmy Jr to go pick up the medicine, and they may have required an adult signature for it anyway.

Yeah, depending on what kind of medication is was Jr might not have been legally allowed to pick it up. Based on Jimmy's reaction after taking it, it was some kind of pain pill.

That was the first time I saw the mall episode that aired before this one. I'd never thought about using those motorized animals to joust before, but now I kind of want to.

That's what I found strange in that episode. I figured Jimmy Pesto lived above his restaurant the way Bob and family do. Jimmy Jr. and the twins always walk home with the Belcher kids to what was I assumed their own home. Have they always just been going to Jimmy Pesto's for after school care?

I used to think Jimmy was divorced or a widower, since we've never seen Mrs. Pesto and she's never mentioned (although I think there was one time she was mentioned early on -- maybe the episode where Gene "learns" baseball from the scam artist). Jimmy's apartment would seem to indicate his children live elsewhere.

I hate Teddy so much. His plots are always awful and he's such an unpleasant character. He's one outburst away from massacring the whole town. Even his short appearances are awful. The trouble is, I think the writers are enamored of the character and keep putting him in. I'd rather see Mort or the transvestite hookers again. (At least we get the occasional appearance of Marshmallow.)

In one of the early episodes, Bob receives a package from the women who bought his dad's house or something like that -- the package contained Bob's old "toys." Isn't the implication that Big Bob was dead? Obviously, he's alive and has his own restaurant, so that must have been a retcon.

Ironically, when Teddy is just with the kids, they get along and he's kind of normal. They don't really even clown him. And last time they got him unbanned from the radio show. The kids also all told the stories about him where he was fixing the closet light.

In "Bad Tina" one of the twins says "Cool! Mom packed me tampons for lunch!" Divorced makes sense.

I have memories of the slow, inexorable way a tube tope rolls down, exposing your breasts. When you can do nothing about it, of course.

 As someone who is late to the Bob’s Burgers party, and hasn’t caught with all the back episodes yet- anyone want to share the significance of 9/3?  I’m guessing that’s their anniversary? For math reasons?

In the very first episode Bob forgets their anniversary and Linda tells him it's easy to remember because 9 is divisible by 3 and Bob responded that lots of numbers are divisible by 3. To Bob's credit, he remembers in the first episode of season 10.

This show was my quarantine binge and I'm sorry I didn't give it a chance earlier. I was scared it was going to be another "comedy" where the entire family hates each other and I was glad to be wrong in that respect.

Happy anniversary to my favorite animated couple! They truly have a relationship to strive for being how well they understand and adapt to each other's personalities and quirks.
