Here are the top 5 ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Episodes with iconic lines and heartwarming moments. Let’s check it out!
The Ring (But Not Scary) (Season 10, Episode 1)
It’s Bob’s and Linda’s wedding anniversary, and the man wants to surprise his beloved woman with a ring. Unfortunately, the 3 children see the ring first.

Apparently, this is a memorable episode because Bob rarely shows his affection towards Linda. He was unable to give her an engagement ring years ago, so now he wants to compensate. The children understand that. That’s why they try to find a way to fix what they did wrong by seeking help from the lady at the water park.
Despite their great efforts, the kids, together with their dad and a scuba diving crew, cannot find the ring. However, Linda says, “I didn’t need one then, and I don’t need one now”. She proves that no ring could measure their love.
The Silence of the Louise (Season 8, Episode 2)

Mr. Frond is angry about his mutilated dolls at school, so he delays the water park trip. Louise meets Millie, an annoying friend, to find the culprit. She will only agree if Louise plays with her. Their close friendship starts with hard candy. When eating it, Millie sounds like an actor in “The Silence of the Lamb”, which explains the episode’s name.
This episode is on this list of the best episodes of Bob’s Burgers for its plot twist and a different side of Louise. She has been a playful kid for most of the time with weird ideas. But she is also serious, concentrated, and willing to work with someone she doesn’t like.

It’s Bob’s Burgers grand re-re-re-opening, and Bob needs to sell some burgers. However, rumor has it that he makes burgers from human remains. A health inspector then groundlessly claims that the rumor is true. An odd club wants to have a taste of “human flesh burgers” though. Bob sells each burger for $50, and he makes money that day.
Personally, the first season is among the best season of the Bob’s Burgers series. It captures the audience with new discoveries about the Belcher’s. The family is chaotic yet caring and supportive. Besides, Tina’s powerful line “My crotch is itchy” lives in our minds for all time. This is the start of a whole Bob’s Burgers meme collection, ranging from all-time humorous sequences to shady and trolling lines. More fans get to know the series for this special collection.
Large Brother, Where Fart Thou (Season 7, Episode 5)

On Tax Day, Bob and Linda came to meet their accountant, Gerald. The 3 ate weed-filled cookies by mistake, and they went wild. Bob’s got 1 cookie and worried that the kids may find out about him being high. Linda’s got 3 of them and thinks that she peed herself. Back at home, Gene and Louise have a problem when they have to escape from Logan.
Clearly, this episode is one of the funniest episodes of Bob’s Burgers. Its circumstances are giddy and comical. Bob and Linda panic but enjoy themselves at the same time. Louise and Gene run away because of a rotten cantaloupe. Eventually, it’s an adventure for them all.
