"Elise's Parents"

The Fancy Restaurant is the seventeenth episode of the 1st season and the seventeenth episode overall.

It originally aired on May 21, 2011.


Dan's favorite sandwich shop gets closed down, so he goes after the new gourmet restaurant that replaced it.


After Dan having a dream of dancing with his favorite turkey sandwich (portrayed as anthropomorphized sandwich), Dan decided to go The Sub-Marine. When he is on the way to the sandwich shop, he later finds out that his favourite sandwich shop had been replaced with a new restaurant called Cafe Pureé, a fancy restaurant that serves mostly French cuisine. Dan complains about the taking down of his restaurant, demands a turkey sandwich, then ends up getting kicked out of the restaurant. He later plans to take down Cafe Pureé by asking Chris and Elise to have a fine dining at the restaurant to celebrate their anniversary. Dan also followed them, and foils the sous-chefs working at there. He released the rabbits and lobsters until he got knocked down by Chef Pureé and sent down to the dungeon, where Dan meets with several sous-chefs, particularly Maurice who had been knocked down even for making little mistakes. Dan works on a French Revolution-esque strike against Chef Pureé, starting from the men's wash room vent where he and Chris encounters with the bathroom attendant and Elise and Chris working together to help Dan. Meanwhile in the dungeon, Dan and his fellow prisoners strikes into the kitchen until it was stopped by Elise. Chef Pureé surrenders when he finds out about the strike and Dan demands him to make a turkey sandwich but he was rejected. The Sub-Marine is back, but this time Maurice and Bernard are now the chefs for the sandwich shop. Dan thanks them for bringing back the sandwich shop back, but after he tastes hisnturkey sandwich, he says it's not as good as he remembers.


  • This is the second time Dan does something nice for Elise and Chris, only for it to turn out to be part of him getting his revenge. Strangely enough, both times it was something expensive.
  • The bathroom attendant uniform doesn't really fit Chris.
  • Elise almost gives away her secret yet again.
  • Chris and Elise would later visit this restaurant again in Burgerphile.
  • René Auberjonois guest stars as Chef Puree.
  • There is a dungeon of former employees under the restaurant despite the fact that the place just opened, so it would be impossible for any of them to be there for years like they claim.
  • The episode is clearly a joke about the french revolution. This is reinforced in the end when Dan says that the french just aren't good with democracy.
