Recap / Bobs Burger S 5 E 2 Tina And The Real Ghost

Go To

Tina starts "dating" a ghost the family trapped in a shoebox, while a ghost hunting duo invade the restaurant.

  • Beta Bitch: Tammy's friend Jocelyn, who barely has an opinion of her own.
  • A Bloody Mess: The "bloody" writing on the mausoleum wall was done by Tina with ketchup.
  • Brutal Honesty: As everyone is talking about how they should be themselves, Tammy voices it's okay for her to be a horrible, obnoxious person. Everyone immediately tells her no, it isn't, and she needs to stop being a bitch.

  • Cessation of Existence: Zeke believes this, though he still likes the thought of something beyond.
  • Con Artist: The so called ghost experts are really just a couple of guys who try to con Bob out of a few meals in exchange for their "Services." He doesn't put up with it.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Bob notes how every exterminator in town is some terrible pun.
    Bob: Let's try Weevil Knevil. What is wrong with the exterminators in this town?
  • Outgambitted: Louise made up the ghost as a joke, but didn't expect Tammy would hijack the scenario to steal Tina's "Boyfriend", nor did she anticipate Tina catching wise and coming up with her own scheme.

How well does it match the trope?
