22. “Can’t Buy Me Math”
(Season 5, Episode 11)
“Can’t Buy Me Math” has a classic Bob’s Burgers plot. When Tina needs math tutoring, Darryl (voiced by Aziz Ansari) agrees to help her, as long as she goes to the Valentine’s dance with him. He’s under the assumption that whoever wins cupid’s couple at the dance can then date whoever they want after breaking up. However, as Tina teaches Darryl how to be a boyfriend, she begins to fall for him—or at least the version of him she’s creating. This was the first episode of season five that I dubbed an all-time great for the show, and while I don’t completely stand by that—it’s more flawed than I thought at first—it’s definitely one of the season’s finest.
Best moment: When Bob does a striptease for Linda.
