— Randy Watkins
Randy Watkins is a minor character in Bob's Burgers. He first appeared in the episode "Sacred Cow" as a filmmaker who wanted to make Bob feel guilty about making burgers by putting a cow in front of the restaurant and convincing people not to eat there.
Randy reappeared in "Food Truckin'" as a food truck owner-operator.
He has a cameo in "World Wharf II: The Wharfening (or How Bob Saves/Destroys the Town - Part II)" where he sings a line of "Bad Things Are Bad" while waiting in line at Reggie's Deli.
In "Yes Without My Zeke", he shoots his independent short film, A Life, Well, Steved, in the restaurant.
Bob and Randy have a mixed relationship in every episode Randy appears in. They start off as a conflict, but after sharing a common enemy, they form a friendship. Every episode after this has moments where they have genuinely friendly interactions as well as minor conflicts. It is unknown where they stand as of now.
Bob politely introduces himself to Randy for the first time while Randy smears ketchup on Bob's hand during their handshake to frame Bob as a murderer on television. In fact, Bob himself begins to take pity on Randy's cow to the point of moving the cow up to his (Bob's) apartment to keep it from freezing in the rain. The cow is kidnapped by two people greedy for a cow to themselves to gain more money at their zoo. As this episode continues, it appears their conflict wavers as they team up to save Moolisa. Unfortunately, when the timer runs short, Randy forces Bob to chose between sparing Moolisa's life or having her sent to the slaughterhouse. Irritated, Bob tries to stall the question in vain until the cow walks out into the road and dies of a heart attack onsight of an oncoming vehicle. In shock, Bob faints and in a rare display of sympathy, Randy asks if he's okay with a genuine concern in his tone of voice. In the end, the movie finishes with Bob wondering if he's a hypocrite, to which Randy immediately clashes heads stating that he (Bob) is indeed a hypocrite.
