Recap / Bobs Burger S 3 E 13 My Fuzzy Valentine

Go To

Bob goes on the hunt for the perfect Valentine's Day gift, while Linda runs a speed-dating service in the restaurant.


  • Act of True Love: How Linda views what Bob went through, pointing out he acted on a garbled memory of what he thought was a romantic date with Linda and even took the kids out of school to help him. Linda feels putting all that effort and hinging on a memory he wasn't even sure of to get her a meaningful Valentine's Day gift is itself the greatest gift he could give her.

  • Dumb Blonde: The actual woman Bob spent that V-Day with.
  • Evil Is Petty: Hugo goes out of his way to prevent Bob from getting the love tester as a gift for Linda and only lets him have it if Bob pays $500. When Bob realizes his mistakes, Hugo refuses to pay him back.
  • Foreshadowing: The fact that Bob couldn't even remember if the date was on Valentine's or a birthday shows it didn't go exactly as he thought.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Sergeant Bosco claims to belong to a secret society that hunts humans for sport.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Bosco isn't wrong when he tells Linda that just seeing good things people have in common isn't enough to see if people are compatible and that they should learn to accept even the bad things about their significant others.
  • Oh, Crap!: The second Bob sees the "BB" (Not his "BB") carved into the machine, he realizes he screwed up.

  • Reality Ensues: Linda's impulsiveness and childish attitude with people lands her in trouble when she takes Bosco's gun without knowing it's against the law.
  • Sanity Ball: Even someone as dim as Teddy knew right off that Linda broke the law by taking Bosco's gun and tried to warn her to stop.

How well does it match the trope?
