"A super wolf?"

"It's been called the Beast of the Bay, the monster of the Marina, and the Wonder Wolf, but whatever you call it, it is allegedly extremely dangerous and allegedly out for blood."

Linda and the kids hunt for a wolf on a slow Halloween night, while a painkiller-addled Bob becomes convinced Teddy is a werewolf.


  • Actually Not a Vampire: Bob, while loopy on painkillers, becomes convinced that Teddy is a werewolf, based on his growling (at the TV), his hairy body, and the weird bite mark on his arm Teddy doesn't like to talk about.
  • Bring the Anchor Along: Bob handcuffs Teddy to the coffee table. Teddy carries the table over his back while chasing Bob.
  • Cassandra Truth: Bob sees the wolf but no one believes him due to him being high on pain pills.
  • Escaped Animal Rampage: The alpaca from the Wonder Wharf has escaped, and the Belcher kids run into it while looking for the wolf. Also, the wolf turns out to be Felix's escaped pet.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Played with. Linda appears quietly miffed at Tina's "Mombie" costume, which is basically Tina dressed as a zombie version of Linda since she feels Tina's implying she's old.

  • Mushroom Samba: As usual, Bob and pain pills equals a complete trip.
  • Real After All: After Linda and the kids figure out that the thing they've been following is a lost alpaca, Bob has an encounter with the actual wolf (who turns out to be one of Felix Fischoeder's exotic pets).
  • Sexy Whatever Outfit:
    • Teddy goes as a sexy nurse; he wanted a "scary nurse" costume but mis-clicked while placing his order.
    • Linda's costume combines a Cher costume (specifically her leather jacket and leggings outfit from the notorious "Turn Back Time" video) with a sheriff hat and badge to be a Cher-iff.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Swallow the Key: Bob attempts to swallow the handcuff key, but finds that he can't and wonders how people on movies do it.
