6.3/10. I forget that it took Bob's Burgers some time to finds its voice, and that at this stage, the show had a little more of its Home Movies heritage than its King of the Hill heritage at play. Bits like Linda slipping Bob a "penis pill" and him being unable to get rid of his erection feel out of step with the tone of the show in its later years, and the writing isn't quite as sharp. There's still the "kids as greek chorus" bit here and there, but it's not as sharp or refined.
Which is to say that this didn't do too much for me. There's a solid arc for Louise in her belief that her siblings are useless and then each, in turn, prove vital to rescuing her from the results of her plan. Her conversations with "Taff" and Tina's discarded attempts to be a heroine in a harlequin romance novel are amusing, and even if the dialogue's not quite there yet, the back and forth between Linda and Bob is still good. But it just doesn't coalesce into something compelling until the third act at the earliest. Granted, I've never seen The Goonies, so maybe that would heighten my appreciation of this, but still.
Overall, it's still eminently watchable, but just not as good as Bob's Burgers would later become.
Bob's Burgers does the Goonies. Really good episode. "Why is Taffy stuck to dad? Well sometimes when a man loves a woman". Worth it for that line alone.
