Louise wanted to "up the ante" at Show & Tell, so she told the class her dad, Bob, uses human remains in Bob's Burgers. Linda's jealous ex-fiancée, Hugo, is the new health inspector sent to investigate. Tina and Louise advise Linda to flirt with Hugo to keep the restaurant open. Hugo is an amateur poet: "Inspector of health, inspector of pain. I came in search of human remains. And I found a piece of human flesh I thought I'd never see again---my heart." Gene makes a delivery next door to Mort the mortician. With kids, condiments, buttons, candy caskets and angry mobs: this may be one Labor Day - slash - Anniversary Bob and Linda Belcher never forget! Written by LA-Lawyer

Is Bob using human flesh to spice up his burgers?
28 October 2014 | by LaowaiGuySee all my reviews

This episode highlights many of the quirks of the Belcher family who run Bob's Burgers burger joint. From the TV dad cliché; we are introduced to Bob a well-meaning but dim-witted husband and father trying to survive in a harsh world with Linda an eccentric but lovable wife and mother who insists on being positive no matter the circumstances and three kids who are oblivious to their surroundings.

The oldest child, Tina, is obsessed with her rash she got as a grill cook and insists on announcing this to the family. Meanwhile, Gene, the middle child, is enamored with his bull horn and its ability to make impressive fart noises and dog barks. Louise, as per usual, is trying to cause trouble-- this time by telling her class that the burgers are made from human flesh. As the youngest child (age 9), she is -- of course -- the smartest of all the family and has the vocabulary of a teenager.

These rumors get spread to the general public and the recently transferred health inspector, Hugo, catches wind of these horrible allegations. With his partner Ron at his side, Hugo accuses Bob of contaminating the meat with human remains.

The amusing coincidence is that Hugo used to be Linda's boyfriend. This causes strife between Bob and Linda and causes Hugo to be unfair to the restaurant by posting a sign that warns customers of potential cannibalism.

This is a fun way to introduce the characters of Bob's Burgers as we see each member of the family fight for attention and the parent fight to save the restaurant from impending doom. We get to see how much the characters care about each other and their quirky characterization is revealed through-out the episode.

Like many animated shows, the focus is on the father, but the rest of the family members get enough interaction to ensure an enjoyable conclusion to the episode's dilemma.
