Recap / Bobs Burger S 7 E 7 The Last Gingerbread House On The Left

Go To

On Christmas Eve, Bob is called to deliver food to Mr. Fischoeder's house, only to find himself roped into a cutthroat gingerbread house-building contest. Meanwhile, the rest of the family and Teddy go caroling, and find themselves drawn to a very creepy house.

  • Beary Friendly: The winner of the gingerbread house contest gets to cuddle with an albino baby polar bear from the local zoo.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Mr. Fischoeder and his rich friends can't understand why Bob is so desperate to spend the holiday with his family.

  • Fascinating Eyebrow: One of the gingerbread house contestants appears to have one, but he was just born with it.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: They're only visible in one shot, but Bob made miniatures of his family on his gingerbread house's front lawn.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Bob decides to play to win after he gets sick of Fischoeder's abuse.
  • Mexican Standoff: The competition eventually culminates in this between the contestants.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: Oscar, the guy who lives in the "creepy murder house", is actually a really nice guy despite being profoundly socially awkward.
  • Pet the Dog: Bob wins the contest by virtue of his house being the least destroyed. He allows Fischoeder's wealthy friends to cuddle the polar bear cub too.
  • Serious Business: The other rich guys get a bit heated in their competition, especially when Bob calls their contest "stupid".

  • Springtime for Hitler: Mr. Fischoeder attempts this by telling Bob to lose so that Fischoeder doesn't have to wear the "loser's hat" (an old bed pan) for coming in dead last. It backfires when he taunts him one too many times, leading Bob to play to win.

How well does it match the trope?
