In this special cuss-free episode, we add plants, the Pokemon character Charmander, and sex to the List of Every Damn Thing.
Phil and Jake sell out with a special PG-rated episode to expand the List of Every Damn Thing by ranking plants, the Pokemon character Charmander (a cute orange lizard with a tail that’s on fire), and sex.

ADVISORY: Contrary to claims made during our conversation, we decided to mark this episode with the "explicit content" flag because we discuss some things that might be inappropriate (or at least boring) for children.
We discuss the relationship between crows & scarecrows some more. Plus, Phil's fear of coat racks.
There’s some controversy in the episode over whether yeast is a plant or an animal. It turns out it’s part of the fungus kingdom, which makes it neither plant nor animal. The same goes for mushrooms, which Jake mistakenly classifies as plants.
Lazy googling by Phil revealed that Bob’s Burgers seems to be set in Ocean City, New Jersey.
It looks like the “palace” (beyond which hemi-powered drones scream) in Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” is Palace Amusements, an indoor amusement center on the Asbury Park waterfront that operated for a century from 1888 to 1988. The famous mural of Tillie was on this building. Jake remembers seeing the decrepit Palace-- which had been shuttered for over a decade-- when he first visited Asbury Park in 2000. It was torn down by developers in 2004.
