Recap / Bobs Burger S 3 E 20 The Kids Run The Restaurant

Go To

The kids turn the basement into an underground betting parlor while Bob is trying to get a minor cut stitched up.


  • Bait-and-Switch: Upon finding that the kids are running an unlicensed, underaged casino, Mr. Fischoeder tells the kids that they are in big trouble...because he's a gambling man.
  • Bouncer: Zeke is hired to guard the door at the casino and deal with cheating customers.
  • High-Pressure Blood: When Bob pokes at his stitches, it sprays like a fountain, much to the horror of himself, Linda, and the guy driving behind them.

  • Hustler: Mr. Fischoder loses a few hundred at the Surgery Sam game, then proceeds to break the bank playing Rock Paper Scissors.
  • I Know You Know I Know: Tina expresses worry that in the big "double-or-nothing" Rock Paper Scissors game, Fischoder might know that they're bluffing, and might even know that they know that he knows. Gene shuts her up before she overthinks it any further.
  • I Need to Go Iron My Dog: The kids' disastrous attempt to run the restaurant ends up scaring off their sole customer, a lady sailor who excuses herself with "I... think I left the meter running." When Louise points out she just got off the boat, the customer replies it's a "boat meter".
  • Insistent Terminology: Everyone but Bob seems to call the area between the fingers the "Fingercrotch".
  • The Intern: When Bob goes in to get stitches, he gets stuck with a rookie doctor who clearly has no idea what he's doing.

  • Sudden Musical Ending: The Stinger features Linda singing a show-tune (a parody of Cole Porter's "Anything Goes") about the events of the episode over the credits.
