List of Bob's Burgers episodes

"Carpe Museum" is the 22nd episode of the third season of the animated comedy series Bob's Burgers and the overall 44th episode, and is written by Jon Schroeder and directed by Tyree Dillihay. It aired on Fox in the United States on May 5, 2013.[1]


Bob chaperones a school trip to the museum and experiences some father-daughter bonding with Louise, while Gene and his gang are on the lookout for exhibits with busts, and not the kind that are sculpted out of stone. Later, on the museum steps, Linda offers her distinctive chanting talents to striking workers.

Pilot Viruet of The A.V. Club gave the episode a B+, saying "Much of the episode, however, is built around the idea that Louise and Bob are cut from the same cloth. Bob and Louise understand each other more than anyone else in the family so he immediately knows that she’s snuck away to visit a closed exhibit, and she immediately knows how to convince him to join in the exploration. There are a lot of nice moments happening between the two, most to Louise’s chagrin, such as when she lets it slip that she’ll probably take over the restaurant. Bob teasing Louise about looking up to him—“Oh my God, am I your hero?!”—was my favorite part of the episode, simultaneously funny and sweet and pulled off with some perfect voice acting. Things briefly go awry when Louise’s trip buddy Ronald has an asthma attack and Bob has to MacGyver a zip-line to save him. It’s the second episode in a row to end with a Louise-bonding-with-another-Belcher moment that showcases her reluctant sweetness (and to be honest, the episode as a whole had many fewer laughs than "Boyz 4 Now") but I’ll take it."[2]

The episode received a 1.7 rating and was watched by a total of 3.96 million people. This made it the fourth most watched show on Animation Domination that night, losing to American Dad! with 5.00 million.[3]
