List of Bob's Burgers episodes

"Bob Day Afternoon" is the second episode of the second season of Bob's Burgers. It aired on March 18, 2012.[1] The episode's title is a parody of the film Dog Day Afternoon.

Plot[edit]

The plot of this episode is loosely based on the 1975 film Dog Day Afternoon starring Al Pacino. The floorplan of the bank in this episode is also modeled after the 1975 film's bank.

The episode begins with Bob going across the street to the bank in order to ask for a loan, despite having several outstanding loans with them already. He is rejected, and upon returning to Bob's Burgers sees several police cars, followed by a SWAT team and a series of news vans, heading back towards the bank. A police detective enters their store, announcing that there is a holdup and hostage situation in progress in the bank, and that he needs Bob's Burgers to act as a headquarters for the police response.

The bank robber Mickey (voiced by Bill Hader) requests pizza, and much to Bob's disgust Jimmy Pesto takes the opportunity to deliver it to them, gaining free publicity in the progress. The pizza is delivered by a remote control robot, and Gene asks the operator where he received his training, leading to an extended fantasy about attending Robot College, where he is seen partying and streaking with robots.

Bob is overjoyed when Mickey dislikes Pesto's pizza, and asks for burgers instead. He speaks to Bob, and requests that he deliver the burgers himself. When Bob does so, the police sniper attempts to shoot Mickey, leading to Bob being taken hostage as well. A series of increasingly complicated group phone calls ensue between the police, the bank and the Belcher family, culminating in Bob being told that he should 'hit the deck' in one hour.

Before this can happen, Mickey is able to form the hostages around himself in a human shield and escape to Bob's Burgers, trading place with the police in the process. When an hour passes the bank is flooded by tear gas, incapacitating the police and giving Mickey his chance to escape. He takes it, but is caught in the process, and the episode ends with him calling the family from prison, still on good terms with them all.
