It's nearing time for Petey's birthday party, and he wants to go to Birthdays, Inc. to have more fun, convinced that any party Bob and Liz throw will suck. It does. Laser tag with flashlights, Dirt Bikes: The Board Game, and Liz won't let them watch a bootlegged copy of Spider-Man 2. When all the guests try to leave, Bob goes downstairs to the basement and retreives Morty, an old living, talking dummy who's holding a grudge against Bob for leaving him there in the basement for 30 years.

    Yet again, "The Pitts" does something that few sitcoms does and provides another excellent episode that is up to par with the other great episodes.

    "Dummy and Dummier" has Petey being forced to have his party at home, since his parents are to cheap to take him to the popular new party place in town. The party soon becomes miserable, as Bob tries to make them play laser tag with flashbacks, and Dirtbikes: The Board Game. Bob tries rescuing the party by digging up his old ventriloquist dummy, who just happens to be alive. The dummy is bitter that he's been locked in a trunk all these years. Bob brings the dummy to meet the family, and everyone but Faith loves him.

    However, the dummy has plans of his own, and soon hacks into Bob's bank account and takes their money, and one day gets the deed to their house. The Pitts, homeless, find a beaver's dam to live in, but it's furry little owner comes home soon and beats them up.

    Finally, determined to get their house back, they kidnap the beaver and send it inside, where it attacks the dummy and turns him into sawdust.

    I really enjoyed this episode, but that's no surprise with this series.moreless
