Recap / Bob's Burgers S9E19 "Long Time Listener, First Time Bob"

Go To

"Crying baby then sad trombone?! Are you Mozart?"

Bob gets dragged into his favorite DJ's attempt to get back in the spotlight by hijacking his old radio station, while Linda tries making pie after a failed attempt to sell Bob on sweet potato fries.


  • Berserk Button: Bob hates sweet potato fries, especially since all the restaurants on the "Best Burgers on the Beach" list (which he failed to make) serve them.
  • Hollywood Hacking: Parodied; Patrick the engineer brags that he was able to link up to the 'Tude's network, but only because they have no cyber-security set up whatsoever.
  • The Last DJ: Clem Clements is a literal example. He lost his old job because he talked too much, played music he liked instead of what he was told to play, and was generally too proud to compromise with his bosses.
  • Lethal Chef: Linda isn't very good at sweet potato pie, mainly because she was missing a few ingredients and tried to improvise. She also didn't add any sweetener because she overestimated how sweet sweet potatoes actually are.

  • Potty Emergency: Louise needs to use the bathroom, but Clem's booth doesn't have one.
  • Shout-Out: The song Bob sings at the end of the episode is a parody of Nick Lowe's "Cruel to Be Kind".
  • Virtual Celebrity: Clem Clemens has been replaced by a fake Dumbass DJ known as Eddie 'Tude.
  • What Are Records?: Gene has apparently never heard of radio.
