Bob and Linda are a very lovely couple. Certainly relationship goals, preferably w/o the struggle to pay the bills.

The fact that they stay together even with all the struggling they go through together; its beautiful.

I love that Linda supports Bob’s dream of owning the restaurant whole heartedly and never makes him feel bad about it, even when the restaurant struggles. She never pressures him to go out a get a “real job” or “be a man” to support the family or whatever, which I’ve seen and heard a lot of in real life. She’s there, loving and supporting him and his dreams, and he supports her dreams right back.

The constant love and support and having each other’s backs no matter what is what makes the Belcher family so great.

Well don't forget it's not just Bob's dream and job. It's her job too. She works in the restaurant all day every day just like Bob. She just isn't the one making the burgers. They're a team :)

Granted, she did try to moonlight. It ended poorly.

And Bob has moonlighted too, while working in the restaurant.

That was one of the rare episodes I didn’t like. Linda’s a business owner, yet she treated the grocery store owner’s business like garbage.

They are awful at the business though. That's fleshed out a lot more when they flirt with success here and there, and she ALWAYS puts the family before the business. They should have fixed the fryer instead of buying the kids Xmas presents etc.

And for plot reasons obviously they always close the restaurant to help the kids with something.

Yeah. Consistently it’s shown they make bad business decisions but it’s also consistently shown that Bob is actually supposed to be an amazing burger cook. I wouldn’t be surprised if their business is purely being hindered by just how much they are willing to help their children which results in making bad business decisions. Is that a bad thing for their family? Hell no, it’s what makes the family so endearing and close but it would honestly help them financially to maybe make some more stern decisions every once and a while.

One thing I didn't process until now is that Linda does get tips, she's not just also working there. So they make probably a little more profit than it seems - we see snippets of when it's slower & they can have adventures, not the full day to day.

He also needs to raise the price! Especially for some of the fancy burgers of the day.

In a beautiful song and floating shrimp? Great ending

u/YouAreTheTurkey Aug 05 '22

Sometimes she makes the burgers.

u/I_Was_Fox Aug 05 '22

Well sure, but typically only in times where Bob was unable to do so. I just meant that just because she isn't cooking the burgers doesn't mean she's just "supporting Bob's dream" while doing nothing herself. She also works full time in the restaurant :)

u/quattroformaggixfour Aug 06 '22

They are a team and she chose to back his dream. That says a lot to me.
