Quotes

Roger: [singing to the tune of The Dreidel Song] Dreidel, dreidel, dreidel I made you out of clay, dreidel, dreidel, dreidel I don't know how to play. Putzes, schmutzes, futzes all are Jewish words, Schwimmer, Sandler, Spielberg all are Jewish nerds. So why do you need Christmas when you have Hanukkah, Schmanta Claus is coming to girls named Monica.
[asking the crowd]
Roger: Monica on Friends was Jewish and I assume that's a Jewish name, right?

Lowering the bar
26 December 2017 | by DfjordSee all my reviews

Derivative, lame, low-bar stuff. The best thing about American Dad is that, even amid all the bedlam, the stories follow a certain inventive logic. The conventionality and laziness of this one is perfectly summed up by Snot's bland closing remark about tradition: it seemed less to do with whatever happened beforehand and more about teaching the audience something about Jewish American culture. Oh what fun it is. Overall the whole episode felt somehow patronizing, the musical numbers were space-fillers, and there weren't even the big laughs to make up for any of it. One star for Steve's voice when he's coyly chiding Snot for hiding things about himself.
