    Favorite parts:

    * Steve using the fart device.

    * Klaus owning a jelly bean phone

    * Steve falling down and then a picture of Roger hanging upside down.

    * Roger being a man at a bar.

    * Snot thinking the stain looks like Mexican Elvis.

    * Last part

    Least favorite parts/scenes that lower my score:

    * Overusing of Green Onions by Booker T. I don't really like this song that much. after what The Weather Channel overplayed it on the Local on the 8s segment.

    *Boring in a couple scenes

    Overall score: 9/10moreless

    Steve is worried a Jewish kid named Etan Cohen is going to steal Debbie from him. So, he plans a heist to steal all of Etan's gifts at his Bar Mitzvah, to prove to Debbie he is immature because he figures Etan will care more about the gifts then anything else. Unfortunately, Steve's plan does not go over well when he uses Snot as a decoy and everyone thinks Snot stole the gifts.



    Good episode. I liked Roger's plan and I liked the revolution (to the audience) that Toshi knows who Roger is (an alien). I also liked Steve telling the rabbi the truth, knowing he would lose Debbie. Good episode all around, definitely giving it an A+ as my final grade.moreless
  • it was an amzing episode of steve being the hitman, but cell phone thing was really BAD

    I really liked this episode, my faviourite par was when he had to find that guy at 8 pool - he was like a proper gansta and i wanna be just like that. Rodger and the chinease guys were the ones who actually made the plan work. Stan and francines cell phone plan, what... no HONESTLY what was that about... it made no sense. It was a really great episode with a well thought out plan and funny screaming jew kid. lol. Although, the chinease kid should be a ninja in every episode (dosent it make sense?) you cant tell me that it dosent!moreless
  • Steve is dumped by Debby, after some tutti-frutti Jewish kid asks her to be her date to his Bahmitz Fa. So he is determed to get her back. This episode was really thought-out but the whole cell-phone thing was not neededmoreless

    Debby dosn't think Steve is mature enough to be her boy. so this really annoying, tutti-frutti Jew asks to be her date to his Ba-mitz-fa. So Steve comes up with a totally clever plan. I can't believe how well-thought out that plan was. Good Job Seth! So he steals his Ba-mitz fa cards that have money in them he sneaks them in Snot's coat pocket. but when he's caught, his bah-mitz-fa party is on thin ice. So, He confesses in court that he did it. Then Debby is mad at him. So is Snot. But he makes it up to him with the awesomest bah-mitz-fah Party. I have a Jewish friend that is also having a Bah-Mitz-fah so I wanted to learn more about it.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The character Etan Cohen in which Seth Green voices in this episode is, in real life, an award winning writer and a contributor to American Dad. He has been a writer for such movies as Men in Black 3 and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa. He also has been a writer for King of the Hill and many other shows and movies.

    • On the Volume 5 DVD there is a deleted scene where Debbie shows up at Snot's Bar Mitzah and gets back together with Steve, meaning that had this scene not caught, Debbie and Steve would have still been together later in the season.

    • Toshi knows that Roger is an alien.

    • Russel Rothberg from "An Apocalypse to Remember" appears at Etan's Bar Mitzvah.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Debbie: Steve, I didn't know you could dance.
      Steve: I can do a lot of things. Yesterday, I gave myself a prostate exam, then had a coffee. Though if I could do it over again, I'd probably reverse the order...

    • Steve: Etan cares about his bar mitzvah more than anything, right? And what do kids get for bar mitzvahs? Gifts, and lots of 'em.
      Roger: (snaps fingers) Say no more!
      (pause)
      Roger: Okay, say more. I don't... I actually don't know where this is going.

    • Stan: Francine, you know I only laugh at Two and a Half Men. Charlie Sheen sleeps with whores, then has breakfast with a fat child. It's funny just talking about it.
