The kids get more than they bargained for when they go treasure hunting in an old abandoned taffy factory and it's up to Bob and Linda to rescue them.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • A great return

    I am so glad Bob's Burgers is back. This episode was ultra funny, Tina learns that you don't have to change yourself to get a guy to notice you. Great episode.
  • They're Heeerrrreee!

    I have been anticipating Bob's Burgers' return since I heard it had been renewed for a 2nd season, and this episode was long worth the wait! This episode had tons of laughs most of which came from Louise, who was sarcastic and mischievous as ever, and Tina trying to be a damsel in distress so Jimmy will like her.

    Gene, and Ollie & Andy were funny too, and Bob and Linda's sex dices was hilarious in an extremely disturbing way. All in all this was a great episode, perhaps my favorite episode of Bob's Burgers so far!moreless
  • A strong return

    Starting up season two with a very entertaining parody of the Goonies. A near perfect mix of screen time per character and some really good one liners helped to make this a really great episode. Hope it's a sign that season two will be even better than season one!
  • Season 2 Premiere

    The kids explore an abandoned taffy factory to find treasure, but it happens to be on the day of the demolition. Bob and Linda must rescue the kids before it's too late. I thought this was an excellent start of season 2. One perfect episode so far this season. Two in the show, A miracle...I hope this season made a huge improvement. Anyway, this episode had lot of funny moments. The kids finding a boy was funny. The kids fighting was very funny. Teddy telling the story of a factory was very interesting. It was funny that Gene walking on his stomach because it's itchy. I LOL'd hard when more kids came to the factory. More funny moments include Bob and Linda playing with the dices, Tina's letter, Gene throwing pants at Tina, "it's took me 5 minutes to cross my legs," the kid thought he said Las Vegas is the capital, Louise playing with the taffy, Gene doing finger quote, and a few more. Overall, an excellent and hilarious season 2 premiere of Bob's Burgers. This is now my favorite Bob's Burgers next to Art Crawl. Hope the rest of this season turns out to be awesome. 10/10moreless

  • NOTES (2)


    • Louise: Well, my arms not stuck in a crevasse so I don't have to cut it off like that impatient idiot!

      Louise is talking about Aron Ralston who got his hand caught in a crevasse while hiking and had to cut his hand off to survive. His story was turned into a movie called 127 Hours starring James Franco.
