14 Days of Valentine’s Day Episodes: My Fuzzy Valentine (Bob’s Burgers)


We’re counting down to Valentine’s Day by looking at 14 different Valentine’s Day episodes from a variety of shows. Today we’re looking at “My Fuzzy Valentine” from Bob’s Burgers. Let’s take a look at this episode by going over its five most romantic pairings.

1. Bob & Linda

Bob isn’t good at romance. He really does want to make Linda happy, but doesn’t get that homemade gifts shaped like hearts aren’t cutting it. He wants to go all-out for once and spends all day chasing down a love tester machine that he and Linda used on their first Valentine’s Day together and carved their initials into. It’s only after spending $500 on the love tester that he realizes he was remembering a date with the girlfriend he had before Linda. But, proving their soulmates, she’s still thrilled to hear how much effort he put in.

2. Teddy & Gina

Linda puts together a speed dating event to keep Teddy and Mort from being alone on Valentine’s Day. When Teddy is matched up with Gina, they’re equally unsure of what to say. Later, when Sergeant Boscoe starts encouraging everyone to spill their darkest secrets, Teddy admits stuff like the fact that he can only go to sleep if he dresses up as Santa. At the end of the day, Gina asks him, “So, that stuff you said earlier, that’s really the worst stuff about you?” She gives him her number.

3. Tina & Jimmy Jr.

Tina is in agony because last year Jimmy Jr. gave her a Valentine that simply said “From: Jimmy Jr.” When she receives her Valentine from him this year, she’s scared to look at it. But, she’s thrilled when it turns out that he put a heart by his name.

4. Mike & Gretchen

At first, Mike and Gretchen aren’t getting along. But, when the dark secrets come out, Mike says that he has a prison pen pal who thinks he’s a woman and who he’s technically engaged to. Gretchen admits to running over two different men’s wives. Neither of them considers these dealbreakers, so I’d call that love.

5. Sergeant Boscoe & Gretchen

Sergeant Boscoe declares, “If you women can handle my baggage, then you can fly with me. But, bring a sick bag ’cause it’s gonna be a real bumpy ride.” Gretchen declares, “Clean up: aisle my panties.” Those are some sparks.
