Recap / Bobs Burger S 3 E 4 Mutiny On The Windbreaker

Go To

When a cruise ship comes to town, Bob catches the attention of the ship's captain. The Belchers are invited aboard for a day, but it leaves with them on it.

  • Didn't Think This Through: When Bob tries to run from the captain.
    Captain Flarty: Go ahead, run! Unless you can run on water, there's nowhere for you to go!
    Bob: Dammit, you're right!
  • French Jerk: Duval is not a happy nor polite individual, and is extremely French.

  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The ship is called the Windbreaker.
  • Gold Digger: Marilyn, the manatee puppet.
  • Jerkass: Hermann, who sees Gene’s crush on his puppet Marilyn and tries to con him out of $100.
  • Oh, Crap!: Bob, when he realizes that the ship is moving.
  • Perverse Sexual Lust: In-universe example with Gene who falls in love with Marilyn.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Despite his insane desire to keep Bob, Flarty seems genuine in giving the rest of the family a free vacation.
    • Hermann uses Marilyn the Manatee to let Gene down gently.
  • Running Gag: The first mate keeps having to clean up after Captain Flarty's pet capybara Kiki.
  • Scare Chord: An ominous note is played when Duval, the ship's head chef, says that he was a guest chef for one night...fifty-six voyages ago! It turns out the scare chord was actually his cooking timer.

  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After returning to find the restaurant window is covered in rotten meat, Bob declares that he's going to bed and not dealing with this.
  • Shout-Out: Linda, Tina, and even Gene picture themselves being drawn naked aboard a ship, while Louise pictures herself laughing maniacally as it sinks. Also, the tanning bed Linda uses is branded "Ti-TAN-ic."
  • Spanish Prisoner: Gene is nearly the victim of this by the ship's comedic ventriloquist act, Hermann and Marilyn.
  • Vomit Indiscretion Shot: We see several ship guests puking after eating the bad oysters from the brunch.
