Bob fears he is overworking the kids and giving them a miserable childhood like his father did to him, so he fires them. Bob tries to hire replacements but can't afford to pay anyone. As fate would have it, Mickey, the bank robber, has gotten out of prison and tells the Belcher's that he will work for free if they will let him live in the basement. Bob and Linda agree to this arrangement without realizing Micky's true intentions. Meanwhile, the kids are miserable without their jobs so they find work at a blueberry farm on the edge of town. What the kids do not realize is that the blueberries are just a cover for the farm's actual crop, which is marijuana. When the children's parents find out about their job it doesn't take them long to figure out that the kids are unknowingly selling weed hidden in the bottom or blueberry quarts and it's up to them, with Micky's help, to save the kids.

Bob's Burgers Bob Fires the Kids
4 November 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Bob gets a box delivered to his dad's restaurant with some of his old toys which the kids make fun of. Even breaking one of his toys. We then get a flashback of Bob as a kid with his dad telling him to get back to work. Bob fires his kids when he thinks his kids should have fun like he did not have as a child. Bob interviews many people but they all walk out without getting the job. Mickey returns and Bob offers him an unpaid job. The kids find summer boring and try to return to work. The kids see Mickey was hired but Bob does not take them back forcing them to try enjoy their summer. The kids run to a blueberry garden and the people who own them hire them to work at the farm. The kids start work where Tina is to deliver the blueberries (weed). Bob is starting to miss his kids while Tinadelivers the berries to some weird people. When Bob walks in on Mickey he sees he is trying to dig a hole in the wall to make a tunnel to the bank. Bob then fires him trying to hire the kids back who still have their jobs at the farm. Bob and Linda find out that the kids are working on a weed farm. Just as the guys get there a SWAT team comes to arrest the weed growers.
