Bob's Burgers s03e14 Episode Script

Lindapendant Woman

Tina, quick, Rorschach test, go.
Um, Greg Kinnear from As Good as It Gets? Yes, wow.
Shh, shh, I'm on the phone with the bank.
Okay, so bounce the check to the power company, bounce the check to the relish guy, but make sure the beef supplier goes through.
Without beef, the whole system falls apart.
Yeah, at least my bedroom beef supply is free.
Yeah.
Sheesh.
Thanks, Marci.
You're a lifesaver.
I'll talk to you later, honey.
God, I can't believe we're doing controlled bounces, and I can't believe you talk that way to the bank.
Oh, what, with Marci? It's okay.
We don't have any secrets.
You know, her husband had to get recircumcised last year.
The first one grew back.
They don't grow back.
Somehow it did.
They had to have an adult "brisk"; it was freaky.
It's not a brisk; it's a bris.
All this brisket talk is making me hungry.
And why do you do the books this way? Your system is crazy.
It's the only way to keep our heads above water, my love.
Well, then, we've got to find a way to cut down on expenses.
What can we live without? Uh, probably Gene and Tina.
That's a good start.
Huh, well, it makes the things I was gonna cut irrelevant.
Good.
You know what? I could get a part-time job.
Huh, what? No, Lin, it hasn't come to that yet.
Yeah, you're right.
Hey, maybe I'll start shopping at that Fresh Feed place up the street.
I hear it's really cheap.
Oh, yeah, that's good.
They have those peanut butter mini donuts.
I prefer the yogurt-covered peanut butter mini donuts, but, hey, I have a refined palette.
Refined? You lick your own armpits.
They're naturally spicy.
"People go nuts for our nuts.
" What a hoot.
I love it.
"In a hurry for some curry?" Hmm, kind of.
Mmm mmm mmm.
Hey, buddy, one sample per customer.
A serving size is four mini egg rolls.
Therefore, four pieces equals one sample.
Good day, sir.
I think there's someone behind the milk.
Maybe it's a dairy fairy.
Or a stalker watching our every move with their creepy frozen eyes.
Hi.
Look at these crazy low prices.
Excuse me, Greg.
Uh, hi, Greg.
Yeah, can you tell me where the wine is? Ah, the grown-up grape juice.
Come with me to our vineyard.
Ooh, wine in a squeeze bottle.
Fun.
Oh.
Huh? It's time for a disco minute.
How long's it last? A minute.
It must be great working here.
Yup, we have fun.
It's kind of our thing.
I love it when a place has a thing.
And the hours are flexible, which is fantastic for someone like me.
You never know when the perfect breeze is going to blow.
Huh? I'm a semipro kite pilot.
A what? I don't understand.
What part do you not understand? The words-- I don't understand them.
I'm a kite pilot.
Kite pilot.
Mm-hmm, my babies.
Okay.
Wow, that's great.
So there's flexible hours here, huh? Hey, did this just become a job interview? You interested? Me? What? No.
No, I don't know, I couldn't-- no Guess who got a job at Fresh Feed.
Check it out.
That's what Mom will be doing at the checkout.
Yeah, paper or plastic, Mom? Am I right? All right.
What, you got a job? But it hasn't come to that yet, remember? I think what Mom's trying to say is: "Take this job and shove it, Bob!" Yeah, I'm bringing home the bacon now.
Oh, I forgot to get bacon.
We have to go back! You really got out of bed this morning.
I couldn't wait! Oh, I'm so freaking excited about my first day on the job! Yeah, I heard you the first time, when you were singing in the shower.
I'm so freaking excited About my first day on the job.
Yeah! Ow, ow! Soap in my eye! You finally got out, Mom.
Don't look back.
It's only part-time.
Don't be so dramatic.
It's just something I'm doing to save the family.
No big deal.
Hey, Greg! Hey, Linda.
Show me around.
Give me the tour.
Okay.
A little pushy there.
Ooh, is that a water cooler? Oh, God, I'm gonna be gossiping around a real water cooler like on TV! I love it.
Aw This is the bread aisle.
There's Mitch.
He's in a Steve Miller Band cover band.
Hey, does anyone call you the Space Cowboy? Yeah, but right now I'm the Gangster of Loaves.
Ooh Good one, Mitch! They get funnier every time.
It's a little buggy in produce.
Yeah, turns out flies like fruit.
Thanks for pointing that out, though.
How you gonna get by without Linda, Bob? She's only working part-time.
I'll be fine.
Did Linda show you how to work the thermostat? It's the same as it always is.
No.
Linda accounts for outside temperature, grill temperature, the number of customers in here.
Linda can play that thermostat like a violin.
Now that you mention it, I do feel a little shvitzy.
Oh, me, too.
Shirt's coming off.
Fine, I'll turn it down.
That's not how Linda does it, Bobby.
You overshot it.
Now we're all gonna freeze.
What are you talking about? I moved it, like, two degrees, Teddy.
Two degrees is everything.
Two degrees killed the dinosaurs! Fine! I'll move it back! Too far again.
That's got to come off! Aah! We're gonna start you off nice and easy today.
On the ten-items- or-less register.
If they have 11, ban 'em or scan 'em.
Your call.
Oh, my call! Okay.
I'm in charge.
To a point.
Excuse me, did someone lose a monkey? You're gonna do just fine here.
Hey, with Linda gone, we can get into some raunchy locker room talk.
Hey, let's describe our testicles with a movie title.
What? The Wild Bunch! Wait a minute.
What are we doing? One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
You have one testicle? You knew that.
Hey, Bob.
Whoa.
It's warm in here.
Yes, I know, Mike.
Thanks.
Linda got a part-time job.
Teddy, you're looking good.
Uh I don't know.
You got a lot of bills here.
It's all bills.
You guys should pay your bills.
Mike's smart.
Yup.
Hey, we're doing locker room talk.
Tell us about your testicles.
Good-bye.
Linda stocked corn and she don't care Linda stocked corn and she don't care Linda stocked corn and she don't care 'Cause she's also got diced tomatoes.
Whoo! Hey nice cans, lady.

Hey, Jamie, these are my kids.
Kids, this is your new brother, Jamie.
Hey, what's up? Go ahead with the tour, Mother.
I'm going to visit with James.
That's right, I'm part of the Fresh Feed family now, so don't bother with the toothpicks.
They just slow me down.
Who wants a balloon? Actually, I would like many balloons.
I'm gonna do something I should've done years ago.
I was hoping you could take me on a tour of the dairy fridge.
Oh, yeah.
Sure, honey.
Yeah.
Come on.
Ooh! Go! Be free! You'll float for a few days! Maybe a week.
Who knows? But you'll live.
You'll live! Wow.
It's like I'm backstage at a Broadway show about people who buy milk.
Ooh, I'd see that show-- sort of.
Hey, Linda, grab a mop, will you? Aisle three's got a spill-a-roosh.
Will do-a-roosh.
That's fun.
Okay, I'll be right back, honey.
No hurry.
What if I put that hand on that arm? And those hips on those legs? Come on, Tina, don't play God.
It's dangerous.
Oh, that hand is so handsome.
What? What? Is someone back there? Maybe.
How'd you hurt your finger? My turtle bit me.
Oh, no.
Ah, I was being a jerk.
He was just being a turtle.
How old are you? I'm, um How old are you? Uh, you first.

Mom's texting me.
I got to go.
Wait! What's your name? Or number? Or measurements? He's gone but not forgotten.
I'm going to use this to find him.
I'm looking for a boy with a turtle bite on his index finger.
Isn't every woman? So, did, uh did your mom mention anything about missing the restaurant? No, she seems happy at Fresh Feed.
But maybe I just think that because she kept saying how happy she is.
Let her live a little, Dad.
She's only been off leash one day.
Yeah, give the woman some breathing room, needy-saurus rex.

That's all.
Oh, come on, Lin.
You're feeling underappreciated here? A little bit.

Hold on, hold on, let me get comfy.
And evaluate your wife.
Okay.
Uh, Linda, you clean the bathroom well.
Okay.
And you know how to restock a napkin dispenser.

Oh, he hung up.
Guess that means no meat, huh? Big day for fries.
Right? Linda has this crazy system for our finances.
I forgot to make the deposit, and we got checks out all over the place.
Including the power company.
Doesn't matter.
You don't have any food.
You know, this kind of makes me want to loot you.
What? Never mind.
This isn't working.
I'm gonna go get Linda.
I'm closing.
You got to go, Teddy.
What? Why? It's dark.
There's no food.

I think she's trapped.
What? Uh, Gene, you've just been promoted to register! Uh My first promotion! Watch out, glass ceiling! What are we looking at here? Mmm bananas.
What is that, chicken? Let's just say 30 bucks.
Okay, five bucks.

Might want to check poultry.
Does this thing work? I don't know.
It's my first day here.
Linda? It's Bob.
Wh-What? Listen, Lin, I'm sorry I acted like I didn't need you.
Of course I need you.
I can't run the restaurant by myself.
Hey, can you ring me up? No, I don't work here.
So, Linda, listen Come on.
I have one item.
Just take it.
Hey, this guy's letting us take stuff! Free aisle! All right, I'm going on break.
So, what I really want to tell you is you make it fun to work at the restaurant.
I'd rather be scraping by together than have extra money and be apart.
But I understand if you want to try this new life out.
I mean I don't really see the appeal-- it's a pretty nasty market-- but if it makes you happy, then it makes me happy.
Hey, come on.
That's too much.
Oh, Bob, it's awful here.
This is just a job.
Everyone who works here just wants to leave.
I hate it, and I hate the customers.
I'm sorry.
I know you people can hear me.
I just hate it.
Yeah, it's called a microphone.
She told me she hates you the most.
What? Bobby, I want to come back to the restaurant.
Oh, Lin Meet me at register five.
I'm on my way! Oh, Linda.
Oh, Bob.
Oh! Oof, shrimp.
It's happening! What? Louise, what did you do? I made it rain shrimp.
What'd you ever do? Get underneath them! They're self-dipping! Give up, Tina.
a.
You're cold and lonely.
And you shouldn't have drank that gallon of milk.
Hi.
I'm Tina from the fridge.
Can I see your index finger? Nothing weird.
It fits.
Is it you? Did you come back? I did.
Every day this week.
For me or the milk? For both.
I can't stop thinking about you.
I want to meet face-to-face.
I- I don't know.
What if we ruin what we have? Shh, shh.
Don't say that.
I can't reach.
Here.
Shh.
Thank you.
Take a chance for once in your life.
If it doesn't work out, we'll always have the milk.
I'm coming out.
I'm stuck.
I know you can't see the other half of me, but trust me, it's there.
Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Kiss! Wow.
I'm Josh.
Joshua What's Tina doing? Tina, stop kissing strange boys in the dairy fridge.
We're going home! I have to go.
Here's a bunch of numbers.
They may look random, but they're my phone number.
Cool.
They look like they're in a good order.
Oh, hey, Linda.
The strings were tight today, boy.
Everything good here? Hi, Greg.
Thanks for taking a chance on me.
I quit, but don't let that influence hiring other pre-middle-age mothers.
Okay, thanks, bye.
What? I Hey! Well, I guess, now that I don't work at Fresh Feed anymore, we're back to scrimping and saving.
Maybe we can find other ways to make some extra money.
If there's one thing I know, it's that sex sells.
So all we have to do is find some sex and sell it.
