Episode Summary

EDIT

Kahn tries to bribe Bobby to break up with Connie. Sick of not being able to be together anywhere they go, Connie and Bobby decide to pretend to break up so they can get the money and rent a motel room. When Connie's behavior convinces Kahn and Minh that she is depressed without Bobby, they try to push her and Bobby back together. After endless double dates with the parents, they become tired of each other, and decide to break up, to Kahns horror. Dale gets his own pirate radio station and puts on a "24 hour Gribble Talk".

    Another great Season 6 episode. This episode again, had everything it needed. Good plot(s) and lots of humour. It's a big turning point as Bobby and Connie break up in this episode. It's just one of those episodes where everything in it works. It has a ton of funny moments and even the B Plot is really funny at moments, especially the very beginning when Dale is on the roof. Kahn was especially good in this episode, and really was the highlight.moreless

    kahn bribes bobby and connie to break up, and at first, they pretend to be broken up, but soon, connie becomes 'depressed', and they try to keep bobby and connie together, who quickly get bored with each others' company and really do break up.



    this is one of those episodes that makes me consider choosing 6 to be my favorite season. it is a really funny episode and it has a good plot. i like how this show never had any crazy plots or anything. overall grade for this episode, even though you probably already guessed by now, is an A+moreless

  • TRIVIA (10)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Bobby (to Connie): You're going to fail a test on purpose? You have never been more beautiful to me than you are right now.

    • Bobby: You've been a valuable part of the organization for two years now, and --
      Connie: Are you firing me?

    • Bobby: I don't want to hurt her feelings, but I've never broken up with anybody before.
      Hank: Well, I've only been with your mother, and we never broke up. But I have had to fire people at Strickland Propane. You gotta be honest. Tell them that they didn't meet your expectations, and give them a good recommendation.

    • Bobby: My God, what happened to the Mrs. I.P. Daley I checked into the Jolly Roger with?
      Connie: She doesn't want to pick a medical school based on what clown college you get into!

    • Dale: Let's see... I told you about the sperm-count-lowering soft drinks... I told you about Supercuts cataloguing DNA... I'm running dry here, people... oh! Is there any concrete evidence that Hawaii actually exists? No, I covered that.

    • Kahn: I always have very strong feelings about Hill family. Now those feelings are of love.

    • Connie: Mom! Dad! Bobby broke up with me!
      Kahn: Wow. You have taught me the meaning of total surprise.
      Connie: He said he liked me, but he wasn't in like with me.

    • Dale: ...A nefarious government plot to store our nation's silver supply in our mouths! Children, I implore you, rip out your fillings! This is 24-hour Gribble Talk, serving the entire tri-house area.

    • Dale: I got a pirate radio set at the swap meet, so I will bring to this neighborhood a non-stop talk alternative. A constant barrage of eye-opening conspiracies and ad-libbed innuendi. Too bad there's only twenty-four hours in a day -- or is there? Tune in to 84.372 and find out!

    • Connie: Bobby, you better go. If my dad catches you here, he'll make me play that song he wrote about you.
      Bobby: "Fat White Lump" is about me?!

    • Khan: (upset at Connie for failing a test) You know A- not good enough for us! And we not so crazy about regular A!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Kahn: Where are you hiding Jethro...?

      Jethro was a character on the show "The Beverly Hillbillies"

    • Kahn: Do you think Yo Yo Ma's dad has to yell at him?

      Yo Yo Ma is a famous concert violinist.

    • Kahn: Tomorrow night we see Bathtub of Blood II, starring Julia Roberts' brother!

      Julia Roberts' older brother is actor Eric Roberts. He actually started his career before she did; Julia once told Seventeen magazine that she didn't think people would pay to see "Eric Roberts' little sister" in movies.

    • The episode title is a pun on Father of the Bride, a 1950 Spencer Tracy comedy remade in 1991 with Steve Martin.
