    After receiving a hefty bonus from work, Stan buys extravagant gadgets while Francine pleads for her dream kiosk. Upset about his lack of support, Francine opens a muffin shop without his approval and gives Stan a taste of life without a housewife. In a desperate move, Stan puts Klaus' brain back into a human body only to discover it was a huge mistake as Klaus tries to win over Francine. Meanwhile, Steve is convinced he's a teen wolf after watching a horror film. I thought this episode was superb. Funny for most of the part while around four scenes bored me. I liked Steve's plot a tad better and I thought it was better that his friends thought he turned into a wolf. It was hilarious that the wolf was at Steve's room and then attack a dog (then Steve's covered in blood). More parts me made in that plot. As for the main plot, not excellent since again there's a few boring scenes, but I did got laughs. My biggest laugh was when Stan wanted to park but a car gets in the way. It was hilarious even though it was somewhat a filler...but not as long as those pathetic Family Guy time fillers. Klaus being a human body was very funny. The ending was funny as well but a little rushed. Overall a superb episode. 9/10moreless

    What I liked: the movie theater handing out diapers for the scary movie, Steve wanting to borrow Barry's diaper, only for a scary part to come on that makes Barry pee himself, the whole plot of Steve thinking he is turning into a werewolf, Stan putting Klaus' brain in the mind of that black guy, amongst other things.



    I did not like the main plot a lot, but the sub plot, with Steve thinking he is going to turn into a wolf, was very entertaining and humorous. It has been done on other shows before but it was still done pretty well here, I think. Overall my final grade for this episode is going to be an A+, a personal favorite, mostly for the sub plot.moreless
  • "Home of the Lemon Juice Waterfall!". Excellent episode, and seeing Klaus with a Fro was probably one of the funniest things i've ever seen from the show.

    9.5
    Okay. This time, I'm not even comparing it to Family Guy, because FG was so terrible.



    Excellent episode, maybe the best yet. Klaus finally gets a human body, but wow, what a great way to develop that plot. Black guy with an afro from the 70's, with Klaus' german accent. The nature-freaks were hilarious, and the plot with steve as a werewolf was okay, not great. One Rocketboot! Ha! It was great, and its a bit dissapointing that another stupid FOX sitcom is taking its place (FreeRide), but itll be back.

  • A great episode, Francine owns a Muffin Kioski, Stan does hip hop, Klaus goes black, Steve bring out his animal instinct, Roger gets sea monkey and Hayley get into a eco-terrorist group run by a "tree". It's fun for the whole family.moreless

    9.0
    Just another wonderfully hilarious episode of American dad. Love the car parking scene, so much true to real life. LOL. And Stan doing the rocket boot dance was great too. Nothing really bad about this episode except maybe the sub-plot about Steve becoming a were-wolf was a bit predictable (as predictable as Simpsons episode these days). Overall a great episode with many funny moments.

    • Hayley: (About the mall) What kind of idiot would buy into this materialistic crap?
      Steve: (Sighs) And we widen to reveal...
      Stan: Look at all this cool stuff!

    • Francine: This man's given me something you haven't for a long time.
      Stan: We've talked about this. My neck gets tired.
      Francine: I'm talking about respect, Stan.
      Stan: Oh, my God, you respected her?! You're dead, Klaus!

    • Francine: You know, you seem very familiar. Have we met before?
      Klaus: (Nervously) Oh, you know, I'm just one of those black Germans that seems familiar to everyone, hmm?

    • Stan: Now, make me that breakfast you owe me.
      Klaus: Right away. But first, let me ask you something. How many eggs should I eat to get enough energy to plow your wife?
      Stan: Uh, three should do it... What?! (Gets hit with a frying pan by Klaus, leaving him unconscious)

    • Stan: Here we go -- mac and cheese. (Reads box) "Boil water." What am I, a chemist?

    • Francine: You want your money, you unsupportive jerk? Fine! (Opens cash register) Here's your $5,000 back.
      Stan: You made all this in one day?
      Francine: That's right, I did. Through hard work and giving people incorrect change.

    • (At the "Aids Hotcakes" kiosk)
      Jimmy: How come no one is buying your hotcakes, Mr. Aids?
      Mr. Aids: Because I'm Irish, Jimmy. Because I'm Irish.

    • Francine: Stan, I did some research on that kiosk at the mall. If you gave me $5,000 of your bonus, I could start a business selling my muffins. I think there's a real market for...
      Stan: Ooh, ooh, uh, I... I'm sorry... sorry to interrupt, but, uh, real quick, this is the worst idea I've ever heard. Never gonna happen, but, please, keep going.
      Francine: Oh, just forget it!
      Stan: Great call, Francine.

    • Francine: (Sweetly) All I need is someone with a little startup money who believes in me.
      Stan: Francine, do you know what I'm gonna do for you? I'm gonna wear my money suit to your grand opening when you find that someone who believes in you.

    • Steve: Dad, I'm meeting the fellas at the movies. Can I have a few bucks for popcorn?
      Stan: (Wearing a money suit) Do I look like I'm made of money?

    • Francine: Stan, it's great the CIA gave you that $20,000 bonus for "Most Evasive Testimony to Congress," but at this rate, it'll be gone in no time.
      Stan: Hey, if I don't buy all this crap, the terrorists win. And don't tell me it's not a competition, because it so is.

    • Klaus: (Sighs) Now I know why they say, "once you've been black, there's no going back."

    • Stan: It's all right, Francine. For the second time in my life, I was saved by hip-hop... but that's another story.
