Synchronized Swimming is the third episode of the second season of Bob's Burgers. It aired on the Fox network on March 25, 2012.[1]


The episode begins with Linda performing prenatal yoga, despite the fact that she has not been pregnant for over ten years. The kids call her over from the television to help them with their homework, and Bob chastises Linda for coddling them. Later, Bob shows off his new soft serve ice cream machine to Teddy, dreaming of selling ice cream during the summer months. At school, the children lament about how much they hate gym class, and convince Mr. Frond to allow them to instead have an independent study of synchronized swimming, which they have no intention of actually doing.

The next morning, Bob shows the kids how to use the soft serve machine and Linda continues doing things for the kids, including making a Navajo mask for Gene's school project. Bob again chastises Linda for coddling. At school, the kids ditch gym class for their "independent study" and have fun around town. At Reflections, Linda runs into Mr. Frond, who mentions the kids' synchronized swimming study supposedly coached by Linda. Back at the restaurant, Linda announces to the children that she will be coaching them in synchronized swimming instead of letting them run around alone.

Later, Linda takes the kids to the community pool to begin their lessons, and Louise finds numerous ways of staying out of the water. At the restaurant, Bob finds himself swamped attempting to fill in for Linda and dealing with the new soft serve machine. The next day, several more children join the independent study, and Linda quits as coach when they continue to goof off. The kids think they have gotten out of work, and Mr. Frond finds them to let them know that the school board wishes to watch a performance that afternoon or face summer school. They beg for Linda's help, who refuses, and Bob decides to coach them because he needs them to work there over the summer. At the pool, Louise finds several ways of attempting to get out of the performance, but ultimately fails. Linda arrives at the last minute to help them with a synchronized performance of her prenatal yoga.


This episode carried TV-PG rating for suggestive dialogue (D) and offensive language (L).
