Last night’s Duck Dynasty showed Korie and Willie Robertson in the dentist’s operating room while their teens, John Luke and Sadie, were having wisdom teeth removed.
It also seemed out of character for a man like Phil Robertson, so grounded in Christian values, to consider discarding rotten meat in his church’s dumpster without first asking permission.
It felt contrived that Jase and Jep Robertson couldn’t get to the manager of the Mexican restaurant without first being seated, served salsa and chips and drinks, and being serenaded by a mariachi band, while Phil was waiting in the truck with a load of rotten seafood and meat.
Si Robertson was absent from much of last night’s show, away on a Virginia trip to see his grandchild’s birth. Uncle Si departed in the first minute or two, with one of the truest Si-isms to date: “A man can never have too many snacks.”
Korie and Willie Robertson’s son John Luke, under the influence of gas in the dentist’s chair, appeared to be a fill-in for Si Robertson this week. He discussed his “eagle powers,” suggested “hungry fella” to his mother, repeatedly sang the praises of “Bumble Bee tuna,” thought something fit “like a glove” and wondered: “Where’s the Chapstik?”
Regardless, much of this week’s show focused on the efforts of Jase and Jep Robertson, with their father Phil driving the truck, to find some place to dispose of the garbage. In order, they considered their church’s dumpster, where they didn’t have permission; a Mexican restaurant’s dumpster, where an employee shouting “muerto” (dead) chased them off: and the community dumpster in the neighborhood of their pastor, who suggested they use the church dumpster.
The rest of the show focused on wisdom teeth removal for John Luke and Sadie, Willie and Korie Robertson’s teenagers. The blood and pulled teeth had Willie Robertson nearly fainting.
