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.

This week’s episode of Duck Dynasty starts with Si Robertson making a strange noise.

It turns out Uncle Si is blowing up an inflatable pillow, which is just one of the plethora of items he’s packing up to take with him on his trip to Virginia to see the birth of his grandchild.

As Jase Robertson remarks, Uncle Si looks like he’s packing to go to China for a month instead of a short trip a few states over. Si Robertson also apparently will be using the soothing sounds of whale songs for relaxation, and of course he can’t resist mimicking the beautiful creatures’ call in his own way. Soon enough, the whole warehouse is joining in, and that’s of course when Willie appears.

Willie Robertson takes it in stride, though, because he knows this is just one example of the thing he might be avoiding while Uncle Si is gone.

It’s the classic addition by subtraction method, and Willie Robertson figures Uncle Si’s absence will give him the chance to see just how counterproductive his uncle really is. That said, Willie is in no hurry to crack the whip right away.

When Si Robertson is out the door he leisurely pulls up a chair and joins in the warehouse laze, tossing some Rolos he pilfered from Si to a waiting John Godwin. He’s just relaxing a bit before he has to take John Luke and Sadie to the dentist, where they both are getting their wisdom teeth taken out. He’s looking forward to seeing how wacky they act after being put under.

Jase Robertson comes in with this week’s crisis, a faulty freezer that has stopped working and let all the meat they’ve put in it from hunting season spoil. Their reactions to seeing the ruined carcasses and smelling the accompanying stench make for pretty good TV, although it can be bad if you’re one of those viewers who empathizes a little too much and can end up smelling it yourself. I’d advise just skipping that part then.

The queasy reactions continue at the dentist’s office, where Willie Robertson thinks he’s going to take advantage of Sadie’s wooziness by treating it like truth serum and asking her questions about her love life. But that all changes when he starts seeing all the bloody pieces of gauze and the genteel dentist ripping at his little girl’s mouth like he’s using the back of a hammer to pull out a nail.

As for the post-anesthetic wackiness, John Luke wins that contest by a Louisiana mile. The kid comes out of the surgery shaking his head around like Stevie Wonder and mumbling all sorts of nonsense, most of it pretty sassy. He even grabs the dentist’s spray gun and waters the office a little bit. Willie is enjoying his usually quiet son’s new personality, as is Korie, who eagerly records everything for purposes of future social embarrassment.

Jase and Jep Robertson are wretching while cleaning out the freezer until their father Phil makes a rare appearance at the warehouse looking for recruits to help him get rid of some cottonmouths on his property. Phil Robertson agrees to haul the rancid pile of meat in exchange for their help. The most convenient dumpster turns out to be the one at their church, but the guys are a little concerned about that No Dumping sign.

They end up punting on the idea and trying their luck at a Mexican restaurant, hoping to throw out their nasty payload with whatever the eatery is disposing of that day. They go inside and try to talk to the manager, but end up grabbing some chips and salsa and being serenaded by a mariachi band. Not sure how they could be hungry after being around all that fetid meat, but hey, the stomach wants what it wants.

After all that, though, the restaurant refuses to let them dump the meat. So off they go again, and Jase Robertson calls his brother Alan for reinforcement, asking if maybe they could dispose of it in his community’s dumpster. Alan Robertson suggests they go to the church instead. Phil has a laugh, but he stops laughing when he tells the camera that maybe Jase and Jep ought to walk home.

Duck Dynasty’s Willie and Korie Robertson have five kids: John Luke, Will, Bella, Rebecca, and Sadie.

The eldest Robertson child is also the newest to the family, Rebecca. Rebecca came to the Robertsons as an exchange student from Taiwan, but then became their foster daughter.

John Luke is the eldest boy and the one who has been on Duck Dynasty most often.  We’ve seen John Luke on a date (chaperoned by grandfather, Phil Robertson), playing video games with cousin Cole, and generally hanging around the house during filming.

Sadie’s been right in the middle of Duck Dynasty, too.  We’ve seen her cook with her grandmother, Miss Kay, and climb under the house for her granddad, Phil.  But, getting driving lessons from Uncle Si provided her most memorable screen time.

Will was the third Robertson child to join the family, adopted at birth before Bella was born and before Rebecca joined the family.  Will shows up on camera now and then, but we haven’t heard much from him yet.

And then there’s the youngest, Bella. Let’s hope we get a chance to get to know her on the show, too.
