Bob's Burgers The Unbearable Like-Likeness of Gene
9 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The kids go to school where Gene impresses some girls with his farting. Gretchen comes by the restaurant flaunting her new body after losing some weight. At lunch Gene is told someone likes him but it is up to Tina and Louise to find out who likes him. Gene is told that Courtney liked him and agrees to go out with her. Gene may have said yes but he does not really like her because she is strange. Gene said he said yes because he was pressured. Gene then starts his relationship with Courtney even though he does not like her. Bob then has to bring Courtney on his date with Gene telling Gene to break up with Courtney because she is so annoying. Gene practices breaking up with Tina and Louise and after three hours of preparation is ready to break up with her. When he goes to her house he sees that her father writes jingles in the music business. Gene is told while he is dating Courtney he has an all excess pass to gears. Gene does not break up with Courtney because he really likes her dad. Gene comes home saying the whole family has been invited to a party where he will perform a jingle for everyone. Linda finds in hard not to eat and when she smells Tina's hair starts to eat it. The family go to the party where Linda does not eat cake but licks it. Gene performs his song for Courtney and when she starts to sing he screams at her to stop which makes her faint then getting taken away in an ambulance. Gene goes to see Courtney breaking up with her which makes her fake her death. Gene later then sees that his song was used in a commercial. Funny episode I think overall especially with Gene and Courtney.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Eugene Mirman)
