"Mother Daughter Laser Razor" is the 10th episode of the third season of the animated comedy series Bob's Burgers and is the overall 32nd episode. It aired on Fox in the United States on January 6, 2013.


When a Family Game Night at the Belcher's home ends up with a shouting match between Linda and Louise, the former goes to a "mommy blog" to gather some ideas as to how to get closer to her youngest child, since she realizes that Louise favors Bob over her. When a series of attempts to get closer to the child fails, Linda tricks Louise into attending a Mother-Daughter seminar.

Meanwhile, Tina overhears a couple of schoolmates gossip over another girl's leg hair. This makes her conscious of her own, and wants to get rid of it. When Linda fails to shave Tina's legs because of her frustrations with Louise, Tina asks Bob to shave her legs instead. Bob brings her to a waxing salon but Tina's fear over the pain forces him to have his legs waxed as well.

In the Mother-Daughter seminar, Louise and Logan from "Ear-sy Rider" manages to anger the seminar leader Dakota and he locks them in a room where the movie "Freaky Friday" is played on loop. Louise thinks of a way to get out of the room and traps Dakota and the mothers in the seminar as well. She and the other children go to the nearby laser tag arena. Linda and the rest kick their way out of the room and get into a fight with the children in the arena, where Louise reveals that she does not really hate her mother. Blaming her for ruining his seminar, Dakota "shoots" Louise and Linda "avenges" her daughter, showing her fun side.

After getting her legs waxed, Tina realizes that she has succumbed to peer pressure and that she has "killed" her tiny leg hairs. Gene gets jealous and demands that his legs get waxed too. However, his and Bob's end up getting itchy because of the procedure.


Rowan Kaiser from The A.V. Club gave the episode an A. Ross Bonaime of Paste Magazine said “Mother Daughter Laser Razor is just phenomenal in how it blends its two main stories, having both parents reinforce how they care for their kids, while not making it too overwhelming. Bob’s Burgers is setting the bar for itself for 2013 pretty high, but the show has proven that just when you think it can’t get better, it most certainly will."[1] John Blabber from Bubbleblabber gave the episode an 8/10 saying "Unlike just about every animated show this one deals with a coming of age scenario ' but the overall plot devices ' seemed rather run-of-the-mill."[2]

The episode received a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and was watched by a total of 6.40 million viewers making the episode the second most watched episode, the other being the first episode Human Flesh.[3]
