Human Flesh

  • Bob is just not good with dates.

    Linda: *pan out to Bob holding balloons* Yes, Bob!
    Bob: Your due date was today?
    Linda: *pan out to Linda and Bob wearing hospital gowns with Linda holding a baby* Yes, Bob!
    Bob: did it go?
    Linda: How do you think?! went very well.
    Bob: Boy or girl?
  • Bob explains to Gene that heavy children don't get molested. Also, the health inspector claiming that the restaurant will be shut down if their burgers show more than the 4 percent of human flesh allowed by the FDA.
  • The kids are stuck at the top of the Ferris wheel while their parents make out below them.
    Gene: You're a couple of sluts!
    Tina: I think it's nice.
    Louise: Can you get this thing moving?! I'm getting mentally scarred up here!

Crawl Space

  • Gene's pretty sure he knows who wrote The Chronicles of Narnia:
  • Gene playing the sounds of his grandparents having sex for his report on prohibition.
    • What sells it is the happy look on his face, even while being told to go to the Principal's office immediately.
  • Bob tells Linda she nags like her mother. Linda denies it while she herself is nagging.
    Bob: (In the wall) What was that, Nag-atha Christie?

  • Bob's The Shining inspired delusions.
  • Grandpa's Maxim magazine.

Sacred Cow

  • Bob sneaking the cow into the apartment in the middle of the night, and then telling Linda she "won't even notice it's there". The cow then promptly urinates on the rug, creating a puddle so large Bob has to take a step back from it.
  • Bob pointing out that beef is made from steers, not cows, and that the "cow" the filmmakers brought is in fact male. And that they didn't milk it, no matter what they think.

    Bob: Get away from there, Tina.
  • Randy advocating for the cow by gluing a wig to its head and leaving it outside in the freezing rain.

  • The film crew and the Belchers finding out who kidnapped the cow: an elderly couple who make their intentions clear while doing an Evil Laugh on camera. Both groups are disturbed.
    • The irony that the film crew didn't want to make the couple's life miserable since they ran a made-up cheap zoo with clearly abused animals and still want to make a big deal out of Bob trying to supposedly kill the cow for the 100,000th burger.
  • Bob's attempts to keep the cow safe, culminating with the cow barely being run over by the Animal Control officer's car. The car manages to stop in time but the cow gets a heart attack out of it and dies.
  • Bob's dream of making out with a cow, and his family watching him lying on the street, wiggling his tongue around.

    Bob: Guess who learned a lot about transvestites last night?
    Gene: I was only on that website for like two seconds!
    Bob: What? No, I was talking about me. I picked up a group of transvestite hookers who showed me a side of this town I never knew existed. And Gene, you're banned from the computer for two days.
    Gene: After what I saw, I'm fine with that.
  • Bob might have been a pimp for a trio of transvestite prostitutes.
    Louise: You're gonna need a bigger hat.
  • Bob on crack. The whole scene is just Bob stumbling around the kitchen as walking Mood Whiplash, and it's fantastic.
    Bob: I may or may not have tried crack.

  • Bob shaving off the 'stache.

  • Teddy beating up the Fuzzy Buddies that Louise summoned on him to flush him out of her room.

  • Bob forcing Edith and Harold out of the restaurant with the pictures of anuses.

  • Choo-Choo gets fed up with Gene and challenges him to a fight after school, including dramatically taking his shirt off and shouting "This train is going off the rails! Choo-choo!" Gene then realizes he was way off in his assumption that Choo-Choo's nickname came from being a noisy chewer.

Burger Wars

  • The Belchers have to resort to a "group Heimlich" when Fischoder nearly chokes on a burger.

  • "I'd like to thank this brick and Questlove."

    Bob: No more lick foot.
    Linda: This little piggy goes all the way home.

  • After Teddy sees Taff stuck on Bob's body.
    Teddy: Ha ha! Your sex night turned out weird, eh, Bobby? *Bob narrows his eyes, Teddy quiets down*

    Linda: Come back safe, Bobby. Don't leave me with these freakin' kids.
  • Later when everyone is calling over the bank at once (Louise, Linda, and Gene, in that order), Bosco incredulously demands to know how many extensions the family actually has. Then:

    Oil spill! Oil spiiiiiill!
    It's on my fish, and it's on my crabs! It's oh so close, but you can't grab!
    Oil spill! Oil spiiiiiill!"

    • Dr. Yap putting the "Trap your princess" step from the initial three step program into action.

  • The break up practice scene that culminates in all of the children screaming.
  • Tina and Louise screaming while they run down the school hallway, trying to stop Courtney Wheeler from proclaiming her crush on Gene.
    • What's important to note about that scene is that it's one of the few times Tina and Louise have ever been on the same page about something.
    • The other important note about that scene is that this is the only time in the series where we see Tina actually moving her arms to run like a normal person, when every other time she holds them straight down at her side, in an even more awkward variant of Airplane Arms.

  • Thanks to spending all their extra Christmas present money helping Chet buy back Nadia, the Belchers have to make do with presents made from some old junk from Uncle Ernie's old store they found in the storage unit. Fortunately the kids are impressed enough by their gifts; Gene gets an old "EXIT" sign, Tina a shoe-sizer, and Louise a security-tag remover ("Next year, Christmas is on me!")

Mother Daughter Laser Razor

  • The flashback of Linda changing baby Louise and trying get her to say "Mama". Being this is Louise, you can guess how it goes.
  • Linda and Louise singing over each other when they reverse parent/child roles for a role play.
  • The guy running the Mom/Daughter class ends up locking Louise and her teenage nemesis Logan in the Womb Room, which has Freaky Friday (1976) playing on a loop.
  • Subsequently, Louise makes good on her threat to gut-punch Logan when he gets caught up in the movie and won't stop talking about it.
  • The episode ends with an epic Mothers vs. Children laser tag fight, made especially funny with how serious Linda and Louise take it.

    • Bob gets out of hearing one of Teddy's boring, long-winded stories by actually getting Bob!Gene to stand in for him, while he goes back into the kitchen.

    • Bob!Gene getting hit in the crotch with a dodgeball:

    cut to Louise putting on a Hannibal Lecter mask and inserting herself into Mr. Frond's desk
    Louise: And now we wait...

    Bob: If you think you're gonna get Gene off the toilet before he's ready, I've got some bad news for you.
    Tina: He missed his birthday party once.
    Linda: We had a clown.

    Bob: Show her the tampon straw.
    Judge: I don't want to see the tampon straw.
    Linda: (to Bob) Someone's on the rag.

Carpe Museum

  • Gene had no idea there's such a thing as a boob fetish.
  • Regular-sized Rudy would rather suffer from his asthma attack than have Bob give him CPR.
    Bob: Uh, CPR. I know how to give CPR.
    Rudy: No, thank you.

    • Later, the workers can't stand Linda's chanting anymore and want her out. When she refused to leave ("Linda Belcher's here to stay, I don't work here anyway!"), one of them throws a wad of paper at her. They were about to chase her when Bob carrying Rudy and Louise run outside and Louise gets them to attack the security guards that were chasing them ("They'll do anything for a dollar!"). Though only two of the workers continue to chase Linda.
    Bob: Did you come to surprise us but then you get caught up in the chanting?

    • The episode ends with Tina drinking coffee straight out of the pot in the Sand Flea's lobby, even though the owner tells her it's a week old and he puts his cigarettes out in it. She does two spit takes and goes back to drinking it.

    Dean Dixon: Now I would like to introduce a truly outstanding young man...

    Dean Dixon: Excuse? Um...
    Bob: It's okay, Dean, thanks. Have a seat. (to the audiences) You know what I like about my brother? He's nice, he... he wouldn't hurt a fly, must less, I don't know. I'm just naming animals here, (to Beta house under the stage) an iguana...
    Louise: (Tries to stop Bob from stopping the prank) No!
    Bob: Please have her removed. (back to the audiences) I want everyone in the room to know, (to Beta house) even people who might be under the stage right now, that the Alpha president would not hurt or kidnap an iguana, right?
    Dr. Yap: Maybe he would!
    Bob: No he wouldn't! Those are the kind of things our crazy oldest brother would do though. You know, (to Beta house) our crazy Asian dentist older brother would do. I'd point him out but I have a slow hand. (to Beta house) A slow hand.
    Gene: Dad should leave the jokes to Dean Dixon.
    Tina: Haha! Hahaha! Come on, help dad out.

Turkey in a Can

  • Everyone accusing Louise for putting the turkey in the toilet.
    Bob: Okay, so really! No one is gonna confess? Louise?
    Louise: It wasn't me.
    Linda: Louise?
    Louise: It wasn't!
    Bob: Fine! So no one, including Louise, wants to admit they did this? I'm giving you guys one more chance to confess, and then I'm grounding everyone, including your mom and Gayle!
    Linda: Bobby!
    Gayle: No, it's fine with me. I don't have any plans.
    Linda: Bobby it wasn't us. It was Louise, come on. Or, uh, maybe Gene.
    Gene: (gasps) How dare you! I put food in the toilet the way God intended. It had to be Louise.
    Louise: Unbelievable. Does everyone think I did this?
    (Everybody admits that they think it's Louise)
    Louise: Then I must be guilty. That's how it works, right!
    Gene: Yep. Perfect system.
    Bob: Well I have to go get another turkey...But I'm not forgetting this. I will figure out who did this. Even though I'm pretty sure we all still think it was Louise.
    Louise: Make sure you save room for Thanksgiving for the words you'll be eating!
  • Louise making a chart of the people who could have put the turkey in the toilet. She took pictures of them by surprise, like when Gene was eating a sandwich and Linda coming out from the showers.
    Louise: Dad, if I may, I taken the liberty of drawing up a little chart here. Let's review our suspects: Tina. She stand at nothing for some grown up stuff. Did her table envy drive her over the edge?
    Tina: No.
    Louise: Gene. He thinks there's only room for one bird at this table. A songbird!
    Gene: (gasps) Do-Re-Me?!
    Louise: Or was is Gayle? Dad went after her cats, she went after his turkey. Classic revenge tale.
    Gayle: Classic.
    Louise: Or maybe. Or maybe Linda. Oh, sweet Linda. A lost, suffering wife stuck in a bad marriage.
    Linda: Aw, poor thing.
    Bob: Lin!
    Linda: What? I got caught up in the story, she's good.
    Louise: And that leaves Louise. Who had no motive at all. Thank you, the end. Thank you.
    Tina: (claps, trying to act like an adult) What an imagination on this one, huh. Kids, hmm.
    Bob: So do you know who did this?
    Louise: Oh, no. Uh uh.
    Bob: Then what's the point of all this?
    Louise: Hold on, I just had an idea. (walks up to Gayle and then grabs and shakes her) Was it you Gayle, huh, confess?! Damn it, Gayle!
    Gayle: (screams)
    Louise: (turns to Tina and grabs and shakes her) Or you?! Confess you're guilty as hell!
    Tina: Uh...
    Bob: Louise.
    Louise: What?
    Bob: Stop.
    Louise: Why?
    Bob: This isn't working.
  • When the turkey is put in the toilet a second time, Gayle accuses herself of doing because she didn't want to feel left out. Gayle then accuses Linda because she's untrustworthy due to an incident where Linda changed the channel when she left the room.
  • When Louise thinks she figures out who put the turkey in the toilet:
    Louise: At first I wondered, who could be mad enough at dad to do such a thing. I mean sure, no one likes him.
    Bob: Louise.
    Louise: And he smells. But then I realized that I was looking at the wrong motive. The person who put the turkey in the toilet was actually angry... at me!
    (Everyone gasps)
    Linda: Oh my, God!
    Teddy: What are we doing?
    Louise: You see, this person knew that I would be blamed and potently punished for this heinous crime. So, was it mom?
    Linda: Don't think so.
    Louise: Correct. It was not. Was it Gayle?
    Gayle: I don't know.
    Louise: No, it wasn't.
    Gayle: Oh.
    Louise: Which brings us to Gene and Tina. At first, I actually believed that Gene was too scared of the shower ghost to go in the bathroom at night. And I believed dad's theory that Tina was too mature to do something like this, if she was acting alone. But what if... (Dramatic Pause) they were working together.
    (Everyone gasps)
    Linda: I knew it.
    Gayle: I can see it, (pointing to Tina off-screen) that one has crazy eyes.
    (Later in the conversation)
    Louise: They worked together to frame me because I have been slowly stealing their allowances over the last five years.
    Tina: Wait...
    Tina & Gene: You have?
    Louise: Yes. Wait, you guys didn't know that?
    Tina & Gene: No.
    Louise: Oh, never mind. Because I haven't been.
    Tina: (relieved) Good.
  • Bob having to constantly buy a new turkey. Eventually leading the guy behind the counter to think he's trying to hit on him. The kicker is that you think it's leading up to a Gay Panic joke, but instead, Bob's more concerned that the deli guy thinks he's a bad cook.
    • When Bob sees the deli guy for the third time, he says that Bob wore him down, and is willing to leave his boyfriend for Bob.
      Deli Guy: Oh my god, we're doing this. So, what do you wanna do? You wanna go the beach?
      Bob: No. Maybe. Wait, I'm straight. I mean, I'm mostly straight. You should call Tony.
      Deli Guy: Let's have coffee. No, let's just have sex! Oh, god, this feels so great!
      Bob:: I should just...sorry. I gotta go cook this. Also I'm married. But if I wasn't- who am I kidding; you're out of my league, it'd never work. (Bob walks off with the turkey)
      Deli Guy: I'm gonna see you tomorrow!
      Bob: (still walking away) Probably not. I'll call you!

Purple Rain-Union

  • Linda's growing frustration with her band, the Ta-Tas, being the last pick for the entertainment at her class reunion. She eventually talks herself into going out of spite... while she's in the shower, and Gene is on the can. This leads to Gene celebrating with an ill-timed "victory flush".
  • After Gayle finally agrees to come back to the band, she wonders if her cat is telling her not to do it. Louise proceeds to threaten him.
  • Linda agrees to let Gayle perform one of her songs, "Let's You and Me make a We-Union". It's pretty blatantly about her high-school crush Derek Dematopolis. And yet it somehow leads to Derek and Gayle making out in the (somewhat crowded) backseat of Derek's car.

  • Bob, disappointed how the Home-Ec class just watches videos instead of doing any actual cooking, tricks them into getting interested in cooking by making kettle corn.
    Bob: Oh, anybody want some microwave popcorn to go with the movie? (rips the microwave popcorn bag making the kernel drop onto a frying pan) Whoops, I ripped the bag.
    Zeke: (groans) Now we can't have popcorn! Idiot!
    Bob: Hey, everybody, (turns on the stove and heats the popcorn) maybe there's another way to make popcorn.
    Jocelyn: He's trying to microwave without a microwave.
    Zeke: Mr. B's lost. God, he's lost it!
    Tina: Let's see where he goes with this.
    Jocelyn: Oh, my God! What's happening?!
    Bob: We're cooking, Jocelyn. That's what's happening.
    Jocelyn: What's cooking?
    Zeke: Aw, poop, he tricked us!
    Tina: Or, aw, poop, he taught us.
  • Louise and Gene annoyed that the students Bob is teaching likes him.
    Student: Your dad is really cool.
    Gene: He's married... to a friend of mine!

    Tina: I'm not sure. I think dad might be a great teacher.
    Peter: Your dad rules.
    Louise: Hey! I don't appreciate your lack of sarcasm.
  • Bob trying to convince Zeke that he has a talent for cooking.
    Zeke: (sobbing) GO TO HELL! GO TO HELL!
  • Pretty much everything Hildy the lunchlady does.
  • Gene makes up his own nonsensical Hash House Lingo while working in the student restaurant. What makes it even funnier is Zeke picks up on it.
    Gene: Give me a bald Kelly Ripa in a canoe with a brick!
    Zeke: Chicken taco... no sour cream... plus a brownie. You got it!
    Gene: Really? I didn't even know what I meant.

    Platt: Well, yes, I did. I pushed you out, and you're fired. So, double burn on you.
    Bob: I got out on my own.
    Platt: Well, then, uh... you're rehired. Get back in the car.
    Bob: No. I'm not falling for that.
    Platt: No, just... just sit down on the edge of the seat here.
    Bob: No, I'm walking away now. Thank you.

  • The Belchers have an awkward whispered conversation while trying to hide from the candy-cane truck. Gene claims to have the best legs and butt in the family, Tina confesses to being the one who pooped and didn't flush, not her father, and Louise wants to know where babies come from.
    Linda: (whispering) You all come from my vagina.
    Gene: (whispering) I knew it! You owe me ten dollars, Tina.
  • Gene ends up blowing their cell phone's battery trying to get through to the radio station so he can request "Jingle in the Jungle", and triumphantly cheers for the "Christmas miracle" when the DJ ends up playing it anyway. The song itself is pretty amusing.
  • Gary's sob story about his frustrations from having to work on Christmas turns out to be an excuse to get Bob to drop his guard so he can punch him in the gut. Gary turns out to have a mean punch for a short guy.
  • Teddy is more preoccupied with making sure Bob reads his Christmas card than getting out from under the Belcher's fridge.

Slumber Party

    Gene: Huh. I thought we were getting revenge.
    Louise: More like revenge on us, having to watch.
  • Bob's revenge on the magician includes licking a platter of cold cuts in his dressing room. Later he finds out Sazerac farted on the meat.
    Linda: I hope you learned your lesson, Bob. Don't lick meat.

    • Mr. Frond dressed as Mrs. Garret from The Facts of Life, and his portrayal in the story as a Dean Bitterman.
    • The climactic "Farts Will Set You Free" song at the end of the story, which features Gene literally blowing the roof off the school with the "Super Fart" he had recorded on his keyboard.
  • Tina's story features her as a hall monitor who has to defend her fellow students from a horde of basketball players turned into zombies by a faulty "jock itch vaccine".

    Mrs. Larsen: It is not the same thing.
    Frida: My swim-aerobics instructor is bisexual.
    Mr. Larsen: Thank you, Frida.

  • After Tammy finally breaks down at seeing all her friends and family enjoying the party without her, Louise reveals that her headset is working again.

    Tammy: Well, what are you waiting for? Get us out of here!
    Louise: Oh, it's broken!
    Tammy: No! (sobbing)
    Louise: Okay, I fixed it, I fixed it. But you watch your tone.

    Tammy: NOOOO!
  • Tina leading the guests in the Chicken Dance while still donning the headset and clipboard:
    Tina: Come on! Keep up! What part of the chicken dance don't you understand?

  • Linda and Bob pouring burger condiments into the jacuzzi to get back at the burger fanatics.
  • Teddy throws Jonas' moped off a cliff in a fit of pique, then immediately regrets doing so.

The Kids Rob A Train

  • Bob, trying to avoid talking with Linda and Rick by trying to befriend a kid riding his bicycle:
    Bob: Look, I'm perfectly happy enjoying my wine, staring out the window at that... (sees a kid outside the train) kid on a bike, going the same speed as us? And we are friends. I call him "Ramon". (to "Ramon") Hi, "Ramon"!
    "Ramon": What?
    Bob: Hi!
    "Ramon" I can't hear you.
    Bob: What? I...
    "Ramon":: I...
    Bob: I can't hear you. I'm in a train. Okay, have a nice bike ride.
    ("Ramon" throws a rock at the train window)
    Bob: Ramon just threw a rock at me. (Beat) We're still friends.
  • Bob attempting to guess what his wine is blindfolded:
    Bob: This one is probably... wine. I would say red. Or it could be white. I'm also realizing that I'm not as good at this as I thought I'd be.
    Rick: No, you're not.
    Bob: Chablis is a wine, right? (Beat) You guys aren't answering me. I'm gonna say that's a good sign. I'm going with Chablis.

    Rick: Poor Bob. I can't see your sad, pathetic face right now, but I bet it's crying.
  • Ethan getting suspicious of the kids:
    Ethan: Wait a minute. Something's up. Why are you out of breath?
    Rudy: Well, my trachea constricts due to the histamines that my body produces...
    Ethan: Okay, okay, Rudy, stop talking. (to Louise) Why are your shoes muddy?

    Gene: Because I am rich.
  • Linda tricking the snobby wine taster into drinking from the spit bucket.

I Get Psychic Out Of You

  • Those sounds Linda makes with every prediction. Even Bob comments that she sounds like Jerry Lewis.
  • Even though Bob doesn't believe in Linda's powers, when she predicts he's going to fall down a flight of stairs Bob starts taking the stairs down to the basement very carefully, first by scooting along the wall then by crab-walking down the steps. Either he doesn't want to give Linda something to gloat about, or a part of him really does believe.
  • One of the many uncover cops staking out the Wharf Arts Center is playing in the string quartet. Sgt. Boscoe thinks the guy is good enough he should quit the force and play violin professionally.

    Horseplay: Yeah, it's so we don't have to get up when every time someone else arrives.
  • When Bronconius gloats to Bob that he'll never get Tina's doll out of the hotel safe because the combination to the safe is based on an obscure reference to "The Equestranauts" that only he knows, how does Bob get the safe open? He calls the hotel front desk and has security open the safe for him.
    Bronconius: Oh, well, that was actually easy.

    • When Felix throws a tantrum and locks himself in the Belchers' new bathroom, Calvin gets him out by drumming on the door and singing a childish song about how great Felix is while everyone else chants "Felix!" Felix comes out all cheered up, though he thinks Bob's chanting was a little flat.

Gene It On

  • The cheersquad adviser, Mr. Ambrose the librarian, who wanted to advise drama, attempting to enforce drama rules by turning the entire cheerleading competition into a Bring It On ripoff.
    • When he reveals his reason for leaking Gene's routine to the other school.
      Mr. Ambrose: Because having you cheers stolen five minutes before you perform is incredibly dramatic! Now you really have to scramble!
      Todd: You are the worst cheer adviser.
    • After Mr. Ambrose gets injured saving the kids from the failed attempt at the "Pighweel", he ignores the paramedics telling him he's not that badly injured and insists on being carried away in a stretcher while groaing in (imagined) pain.

    • When Gene needs a new cheer routine, he decides to do the Pigwheel and introduces it to his squad:
      Gene: (showing the flip book of the routine) It's never been accomplished before except by stick figures.
      Todd: I don't want to be "that guy," but if we do that, we're all gonna die a tragic death in front of our families.
      Mr. Ambrose: Stop, no, I never meant it to come to this! It's too risky! Do it! Do it!

    Gene: Okay.
    Louise: Oh, no way. I'm busy.
    Tina: By the way, with a cartwheel, are your hands or your face supposed to touch the ground first?
    Louise: [pause] Actually, I'll make time.
  • Gene has to lift Tammy during a routine. It goes as well as you'd expect. When the inevitable happens, Gene gags and nearly drops Tammy.
    Tammy: Well, don't squeeze, newbie!
    Jocelyn: Don't breathe in, you'll die!
    Tammy: That hasn't been proven 100%!
  • When Tina and Jimmy Jr. reconcile, Louise (who's just had way too much pie) declares she really IS going to puke and proceeds to vomit on the window of the rotating restaurant.

Wharf Horse

  • When Felix tries to disrupt Tina's bike-locking to Mr. Goiter (her favorite horse in the carousel)
    Felix: Leave now, or I will make you leave!
    Tina: Oh, I'm sorry, do you have the ability to make 13 year old girls poop out keys?
    Gene: He might. Don't look into his eyes!
    Louise: (To the onlookers) This guy's trying to make my sister poop!
    Felix: No, I'm not.
    Gene: Girl-pooper! Girl-pooper!
    Louise: Girl-pooper!
    Gene: Boarding school sounds fun.
  • When the contractors start smashing the other horses on the carousel:
    Tina: Lady Big Nose, no! (smash) Mr. Down There Hair! (smash) Henry Human Feet! (smash)
    Gene: His feet were more human than mine!
  • Bob lampshading how suspicious Felix's Evil Laugh is.
  • When Bob tries to get Tina to stop protesting:
    Bob: Tina, I know you love the carousel, but I have to tell you something. (whispers) They're tearing down Wonder Wharf to build condos.
    (Crowd gasps)
    Tina: NOOOOOOO!
    Bob: Uh, you weren't supposed to hear that. It's for the best. You understand, right, honey?
    Bob: Yeah, so, great.

World Wharf II: The Wharfening

    Season Five 
Work Hard or Die Trying, Girl
  • Gene and Courtney having their respective recollections of when she asked him to help with his play.

  • Gene calling Working Girl "the sassy sister film to Die Hard."
  • When Tina chooses to perform in Courtney's play instead of Gene's play, she explains that Jimmy Jr. is in the play as Jack Trainer and she wants to get together with him, despite her playing Katharine Parker.

    Linda: [Sweetly] Everybody got their pillows? Everybody safe?
    Kids: Yeah.
    Rudy: Really?
    Linda: [sweetly] No, no, you're just out, honey.
  • Linda's song about best friends.
    Linda: He crashes on your couch when he loses his job / Guy pulls a knife, and you jump in front / You take the blade right in the gut, ow! / Then he holds your hand till the medic comes, yeah! / You feed him soup when he breaks his jaw / You help him pee when he has that thing, / He's your best friend!
  • After waking up from a bizarre nightmare about his burgers killing Teddy, a groggy Linda assumes he wants to just plain kill him. She's surprisingly prepared. She even plans to homeschool the kids after doing the deed.
    Bob: Good God Linda, you had all that ready?
    Linda: I'm just being supportive.

Dawn of the Peck

  • The competing theories on why the birds are attacking humans: Teddy thinks that their "pecking order" has been thrown out of whack because the turkeys, chickens, and geese were all stored together; Linda thinking that Thanksgiving is punishing them for not staying at home with Bob; and Micky believes that the birds have decided to overthrow the human race.
    Linda: We didn't do Thanksgiving right. We didn't listen to you and now it's attacking us.
    Bob: That makes sense.
    Teddy: No, it's biological!
    Mickey: No, it's the beginning of the Turkey revolution, Bob! (whispering) We gotta pick sides.
  • When the gang escapes from Wonder Wharf, Linda decides to "give the bird to the birds". The Belcher children, the Pesto twins, and Regular-Sized Rudy ask if they can as well; Linda agrees, but just once since it's a holiday. Cue the children flipping off the birds (all conveniently obscured) to triumphant music.
    Louise: It's so insulting!
  • Rudy saying he wants to go with Teddy and the Belchers to rescue Bob.
    Rudy: I kinda want to see how this one ends.
    Louise: Oh, Sweet Rudy. You probably won't live to see the end.
    Rudy: Oh...
  • Bob getting literally "fall-on-his-ass-drunk" while staying at home, and being completely unaware of what's going on with the birds. Including not seeing the horde of birds following him until he encounters the "cyclops bird" after getting a turkey for Thanksgiving. Bonus points for drunk-singing and drunk-dancing to Donna Summer while police sirens flash and blare outside.

    Gene: You're killing me!

    • Linda trying to comfort Bob on the judge's results when Skip is likely to win:
      Linda: You got a "Fantastic" and a "Ooh", but [Skip] got an "Amazing" and a really weird "Ah", and [the third judge] liked both your "mouth-feels". I say it's a tight race.
    • When the judges decides the winner:
      Bob You know what. I did my best, I held my own with Skip, and no matter what happens, Lin, I feel pretty good.
      Chuck: And the winner is: Skip Marooch.
      Bob: Oh my God, I feel bad!
      Linda: Aw, dammit! (slaps a cooler off the table) Piece of garbage!
      Bob: How could we lose?! Are you kidding me?!

    Linda: No you weren't!
    Gene: Not with you.
  • The reason they hardly ever see Bob's father? Bob can only stand to be in his presence for 15 minutes before his obnoxious attitude drives him off. Gene says it's like speedating, but with your dad.

    Bob: I'm gonna go inside.
    Bob's Dad: *at Bob's birthday* You're a lot fatter than I was at your age.
    Bob: Gotta go.
    Bob's Dad: *meeting the newborn Gene* Aw, cute kid... So you named him Gene, huh? Is it too late to change that?

    Narrator (Gene): Wagstaff has questions for Jimmy Jr. Why does he dance all the time? What's he hiding? Does he have to go? Why doesn't he stop dancing and go? Tell Jimmy Jr. to go to the bathroom already! By the way, here's his 5th grade picture (flashes an embarrassing photo of him with Braces of Orthodontic Overkill) it's terrible!

    Teddy: I'll fix it later, with my hammer!
    Mort: (Walks in as they're both destroying the counter)...I'll come back later.
  • In the end where Henry reveals that he intentionally planned for Louise and Millie to run against each other, and get the other disqualified
    Louise: How could you play with people's live like that?! Who the hell do you think you are Henry Haber?...You're going to be an amazing president.
  • Gene's reaction to the claim that Millie's actions were just an improv game.
    Gene: That's impossible. The only losers in improv are the audience.

The Oeder Games
