Recap / Bob's Burgers S8E15 "Go Tina On The Mountain"

Go To

"I didn't come all this way to not have a life changing nature hike!"

Tina attempts to have a "Nature epiphany" on a school field trip. While Bob and Linda try having fun with the house to themselves.

  • Blatant Lies: Everything about Martha, about her being a wonder woman of the woods, her inventing an anger relieving exercise, about "leveling up" and about climbing the mountain by herself is stuff she made up to impress Tina.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Tina is dubbed "Fluffy Butt" when she's overheard singing a jingle from a toilet paper commercial.
  • Failed a Spot Check: They forgot to check their children's room for any signs of the partygoers. Gene found a middle aged woman in his room busting Bob & Linda of their partying.
  • Fancy Camping: Martha lives in the woods with a generator, a TV, a microwave (which she stole), a smartphone among other things.
    Gene: You're not a hermit! You're not even a camper! You're a glamper! Yech!

  • Giant Flyer: Tina's Imagine Spot of getting to the top of Mount Windygap has her riding a giant bald eagle.
  • Gilligan Cut:
    • Linda and Bob decide to do something fun for the evening. Cut to them asleep on the couch. It happens again the second night, with a Smash Cut from Bob midsentence.
    • Tina declares that this is the last time anyone will hear "Fluffy Butt". Cut to everyone singing the jingle at the bus.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Jocelyn & Tammy call out Tina for seemingly calling Tammy names even though they have been calling Tina "Fluffy Butt" the whole trip.
  • Hermit Guru: Martha, the "Hermit" who has been giving Tina some questionable life advice.
  • Not Now, Kiddo: Gene and Louise try to warn Mr. Frond about Tina going to the mountain alone, but he's too busy dealing with the other kids to listen.
  • Polly Wants a Microphone: A crow apparently heard everyone calling Tina "Fluffy Butt" and repeats it when they're at the mountain. Fortunately, she's over the nickname by that point.

  • Portmanteau: Tina wants to be called Tigle (Tina + eagle) after she gets her "nature epiphany".
  • Wild Teen Party: An Adult version of this involves Bob & Linda inviting everyone in the dance club to their house for a party, they even try to cover up their tracks so that their kids wouldn't try to pull the same stunt.

How well does it match the trope?
