The town is throwing their Wharf It Down Festival and Bob and Linda enter the First Annual Best Burger Contest. The contest is already off to a stressful start due to the fairly stiff competition as well as the fact that the burger contest is hosted by Chuck Charles, the news anchor Bob and Linda got fired during Season 2 Episode 9 who (not so secretly) still holds a grudge. To make matters worse, the easily distracted Gene forgot to grab the black garlic, which is essential for the black garlic burger Bob is making. With only fourteen minutes left in the competition, the kids race across town to find the black garlic, leading them to steal some from the health food store that they were banned from a week prior. While fighting the clock and the angry store clerk on their tail, Tina and Louise confront Gene about how easily distracted he is and how it makes situations more difficult. Gene, hurt, but determined, sees this as a chance for redemption and, despite his sibling objections, takes the black garlic and races through the fair, fighting his distraction towards all the food around the festival and gets Bob the black garlic just in time. Despite all this, Bob and Linda lose. However, all is not lost, since they wowed the judges and they got a long line of customers from the festival, eager to try the Black Garlic Burger.
