Bob's Burgers - Escape from Which Island?

Rich people are crazy. In the need of a personal chef for the retreat of his secret club, Mr. Fischoeder (Kevin Kline) hires Bob (H. Jon Benjamin) who spends most of his night on the secret island running from one of the guests turned rabid and surviving the storm which Fischoeder 's friends chose to ignore. Back home, Linda (John Roberts) gives Gene (Eugene Mirman), Tina (Dan Mintz), Louise (Kristen Schaal) a crash course on proper etiquette at a cocktail party (some of her advice is even good).

"Escape from Which Island?" fits into the common trope of the show involving what kind of crazy situation has Bob found himself into now (although this one is caused by Fischoeder rather than a member of his own family). With smart guests hightailing it off the island prior to the onset of the storm, Bob finds himself in the middle of Fischoeder's crazy circle of friends, each of them high as a kite and ultimately not that helpful in a plan to get off the island (at least not until Fischoeder starts coming down from his high). As for the family B-story, it shows how easily the family can make its own fun while Louise panics over all the rules to remember until Linda points out she's already memorized them allowing the foursome to enjoy the rest of the evening.
