I have to say, I think Bowling for both. Red Dress is a great episode, but I really loved the innovative format of Bowling. A lot of great humour is derived from the contrast of what happens in both scenarios. I like that in both, the parent who goes ends up making the outing equally disastrous as the other, but for different reasons!
Having said that, Red Dress is a great episode too. It really introduces the uncompromising nature of Lois in a big way and sets the stage for a future episodes that focus on her character.
