Storyline

When Hayley and Steve leave for their respective summers of fun, Francine looks forward to her newfound alone time with Stan. There's only one problem: Roger is still living in the attic fighting for every second of attention he can get. When Francine teaches Roger to be self-sufficient, he finally gets a place of his own. Stan fears that he will bore Francine into leaving him and cooks up a scheme to bring Roger back to the house and liven things up. Meanwhile at camp, Steve and his pals fall prey to a scheme that doesn't quite have the effect they were hoping for. Written by Fox Publicity

Trivia

Steve spends his summer at "Camp Squanto" in this episode, and behind the sign with the camp's name is a prominent totem pole. This totem pole is clearly modeled on a real totem pole at the actual Camp Squanto, a Boy Scout camp in Plymouth, Massachusetts. See more »

The One During Summer...
13 October 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed this episode. It's not one of my all-time favorites, but Roger is just so hilarious all the time that every episode makes me laugh so hard.

In this episode, it's Summer, and Hayley, and Steve are off to have some fun. Francine is looking forward to having some alone time with Stan, however, there's one small problem. The weird- shaped, alcoholic, "actor" living in their attic (Roger in case you didn't realize). So, since he's still there, Francine teaches Roger how to be self-sufficient, so he can finally move out. And he does, for a while. But then Stan fears that Francine will leave him because he's boring. Meanwhile, Steve's at camp, and he, and his friends fall prey to a scheme that's not good for anyone.

Roger's disguise: The Phantom Of The Telethon.

Best part of this episode: Roger.

Worst part of this episode: Nothing in particular.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
