(Season 2, Episode 4)
Most Bob’s Burgers episodes have some variant of a good story, funny dialogue, catchy music, and/or visual gags, but few episodes nail all of these elements down like “Burgerboss” does. When Bob gets an arcade game put in the restaurant, Jimmy Pesto proves to be much better at the game than Bob and, for his high score, enters the name “BOB SUX.” Bob becomes obsessed with getting Jimmy’s score off the machine, to the point where he’s forced to take pain pills for a messed-up wrist. He then enlists the help of nerd/video game enthusiast Darryl (in his first appearance).
So much is right with this episode, from Bob’s painkiller meltdown to “Groping for Glory,” the funniest montage song parody since South Park’s “Montage” itself. In fact, it was one of only two episodes I considered for the No. 1 spot. But it never really had a chance…
Best moment: When Bob can’t even handle how high he is.
