Recap / Bobs Burgers S 8 E 13 Cheer Up Sleepy Gene

Go To

Gene attends a disastrous sleepover. While Bob and Linda compete to see who is the worse snorer.

  • Big "WHAT?!": Gene when Alex tells him he's running away from home.
  • Did Not Think This Through:
    • Alex’s shelter in the woods, mostly made of garbage bags, and meager rations would not last him a month, as he said. In fact, the shelter falls apart in the rain moments later.
    • Bob and Linda's plan to prove the other is the worse snorer doesn't work because they can't figure out who's making what sounds on the tape. All it does is make them realize they're gross.

  • Hypocrite: When Alex and Gene sneak back home, they catch his sugar banning mom gorging on ice cream.
  • The Runaway: Alex runs away from home because he’s tired of his parents putting him on a diet, and takes a reluctant Gene along with him.
  • Shout-Out: Gene mentions Cabin In The Woods. He didn’t see it, but found the music on the trailer terrifying.

How well does it match the trope?
