honestly one of the most friggin hilarious things about bob’s burgers is how drastically the scale of the story-lines fluctuates.  like some episodes are so everyday, sit-com mundane; gene joins the cheerleading squad, tina goes on a date, linda gets another job, something funny happens at the school or the restaurant

but then some episodes are preposterously dramatic??  the family gets trapped on a crazy cruise ship or they have to fly and crash land a plane or mr fischoeder’s brother TIES BOB AND MR FISHOEDER TO THE PIER TO MURDER THEM SO HE CAN INHERIT AND SELL THE AMUSEMENT PARK 

and you never know if you’re gonna get an episode where the plot revolves around a grill not working properly or, like, bob gets threatened by the mafia 

also some episodes are inexplicably musicals

Musical theatre songs appreciation:
Wait For It (Hamilton) performed by Leslie Odom Jr. (video)

Life doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall and we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m still alive
When so many have died
Then I’m willin’ to—
Wait for it…

When Jon had been very young, too young to understand what it meant to be a bastard, he used to dream that one day Winterfell might be his. Later, when he was older, he had been ashamed of those dreams. Winterfell would go to Robb and then his sons, or to Bran or Rickon should Robb die childless. And after them came Sansa and Arya. Even to dream otherwise seemed disloyal, as if he were betraying them in his heart, wishing for their deaths. I never wanted this, he thought as he stood before the blue-eyed king and the red woman. I loved Robb, loved all of them… I never wanted any harm to come to any of them, but it did. And now there’s only me. All he had to do was say the word, and he would be Jon Stark, and never more a Snow. All he had to do was pledge this king his fealty, and Winterfell was his. All he had to do…

… was forswear his vows again.

Anybody remember when I carried a nuke through a wormhole? Saved New York. Recall that? A hostile alien army came charging through a hole in space. We’re standing 300 feet below it. 
That up there, that’s… that’s the end game. How were you guys planning on beating that?
