    Bob's Burgers "God Rest Ye Merry Gentle-Mannequins" Review: Bob and the Real Man

    The conclusion of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentle-Mannequins" felt like a store-bought fruitcake crashing an otherwise delightful holiday spread.

  • Episode Summary


    You'll never guess what Bob finds in the storage unit he just inherited. Family heirlooms? Nope. A bunch of junk? Nope. Amelia Earhart? Nope. Give up? It's the one and only Chet; a man who believes he used to be a mannequin. I told you you'd never guess it.


    Who was the Episode MVP ?

    • Aw man..

      You know, it's actually hard to say if they guy really used to be a mannequin (cause it's a cartoon), or the guy really is just insane.
    • Not what I expected

      When Bob inherits a storage unit, his family is imagining that they will be receiving treasure that has been passed down. They soon discover that instead of treasure, they inherit Chet, a man who believes he used to be a mannequin. For my second Christmas episode review today, I am doing this episode. In my opinion, this is not what I have in mind but it is still far from being bad. My major problem is the plot and I'm not too fond of the idea of Chet used to have a mannequin. Also, I didn't like how Bob insulted Chet which made him leave crying. Honestly, this was a weird episode. Funniest character here ranges from Bob to Louise. Not the best holiday themed Bob's Burgers ever. Go watch Full Bars and the Thanksgiving episode. They're quite better than this episode. 8/10moreless

    • QUOTES (13)

      • (Chet is having a 'conversation' with the mannequin Nadine he has just been reunited with. The family watches)
        Tina: Chet's a really good listener.
        Linda: That's important to a woman.
        Bob: Lin, she's a mannequin.
        Gene: Who won't shut up, apparently.

      • Linda: It's not here yet, but I want to go on record and say this is the best Christmas ever! Whoah!
        Bob: I know; we might actually be able to afford to buy the kids something nice. Maybe I can sneak out later while you cover for me.
        Linda: Yeah, I'll tell the kids you're dropping off a present for your mistress. Hehe, as if!

      • (Bob is skeptical of Chet's claims)
        Chet: Well then, if I wasn't a mannequin, how come I don't know how to use a computer? Explain that, Bob.

      • Bob: (loud whispering) Chet's crazy, Lin. Do you think he'll kill us before or after Christmas?
        Linda: (loud whispering) I don't think he will - he said he's not a murder mannequin.
        Chet: You two really need to work on your whispering.

      • Chet: I used to be a mannequin. You don't need to be afraid of me; I'm not one of those 'murder mannequins' or 'satanic mannequins'.

      • (Chet has just told the family that he used to be a mannequin)
        Tina: I get it; one day you became anatomically correct. (beat) I just went through that.

      • Bob: I haven't talked to Uncle Ernie in years.
        Gene: 'Talking to Uncle Ernie' would be a great code for going to poop.
        Bob: Gene, he just died.
        Gene: It's a fitting tribute!

      • Chet: The name's Chet; short for 'Chester', long for ...'/ch/'.

      • (Chet has been frozen in the window all day)
        Linda: Okay, Chet, we're closed. You can move now.

        Chet: (animating) Whoo! I am full of lactic acid - and ideas for tomorrow's window.

      • (Chet is part of a display in Bob's window)
        Louise: It's been 2 hours and he still hasn't moved! UGH!
        Gene: I'm tired of pantsing him; it's like pantsing a stone.
        Tina: Or a grandpa.

      • (going to the storage unit they've just inherited)
        Tina: I still have a good feeling about this.
        Linda: There could be an old car in there! Or a whole bunch of fur coats.
        Gene: I'm going to throw paint on them!

      • Linda: (to Bob) Oh, I'm so mad I could stomp!

        Gene: (from another room) Do it, mom! Do the stomping dance!

        Linda: (clenches fists, turns and leaves, stomping her foot each time she speaks) Don't! Bother! Bringing! The! Mistletoe! To! Bed! But! Do! Bring! Me! A! Snack! Chocolate!

      • Chet: (angrily) I hope your face can catch, Bob, because I'm throwing your words back in it!
