User Reviews

Wonderful ending to a typical episode.
15 January 2014 | by tucker-davidjSee all my reviews

This episode of Bob's Burgers falls short in only one department: it has a pretty predictable ending, often used in sitcoms. The predictable ending is overshadowed by a hilarious episode with awesome one-liners, and a very sweet (even for BB standards) ending. The predictability creates some initial feelings of boredom, which makes it an imperfect episode (as most episodes of TV are).

This episode's A+ strengths are its sweet moments and its one-liners. Gene provides most of the laughs this episode, but everyone gets in a couple phrases that will cause real laughter. The best one of the night: "Why does Dad think I'm a turkey?" "Your cocky strut!"

The second strength is its sweetness, which comes out of an adorably-drawn baby Tina and sweet father-daughter moment. And also a gay shop worker who thinks Bob is hitting on him, and Bob, instead of being offended, just says he is "straight, well, mostly straight, but who am I kidding you're out of my league anyway."

Cute and hilarious episode, which BB does very very well.
