Recap / Bobs Burger S 4 E 14 Uncle Teddy

Go To

Teddy is left to watch the kids, while Bob and Linda attend a burger chef convention. Where they find they aren't very welcome.

  • Bland-Name Product: Indefinite Stay, the hotel where the convention takes place, is a parody of the Extended Stay America hotel chain.
  • Dreadful Musician: Jonas carries a melodica around, and plays it at every chance. Even smitten Tina gets tired of it after a while.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes:
    • Bob turns out to be this to the other members of the burger forum, much to his surprise.

    • Jonas doesn't seem well liked by either of his friends. Especially in regards to his incessant melodica playing.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Bob's "advice" to the other members of his burger forum turns out to be more insulting than he realized. When he tries to explain he was joking around with them, the other chefs point out he never gave any actual indicator that they were jokes.
  • Jerkass: Jonas uses Tina's obvious crush on him to get free food for himself and his friends, and they abandon her once they get in trouble.
    • Even after Bob admits that he didn't realise how his internet behaviour was coming across and points out his restaurant is nothing special, the other burger chefs continue antagonising him just to be spiteful.
  • No Social Skills: Bob believes he's very popular with a group of burger chefs he considers friends online, only to be shocked when he learns they all hate him. This turns out to be due to Bob's complete lack of understanding internet etiquette which in turn meant all his attempts to be friendly and give helpful advice backfired because he unintentionally made it sound like he was bullying and insulting the other chefs.

  • Running Gag: Jonas' horrible melodica playing.
