  • Episode Description
  • When NHRA driver John Force needs an organ transplant, Dale is the only one who can save him. Hank encourages Dale to ignore his fear of hospitals and give up his kidney to save Force. Dale reluctantly agrees, but only if Hank takes his place being Dale for the day, a task that consists of outlandish duties. When it is revealed that Force doesn't need a kidney, Hank has to decide whether the already extracted kidney should go to a 10 year old boy. Bobby takes over the morning announcements and Peggy becomes his side kick to help him seem funnier.moreless

  • Quotes (8)

    • Dale: Nancy, what's Redcorn doing in our shower?

    • Man: Look, Gribble's got a standing order for alien urine. Eight drums, $319. You won't find a better price. Hank: That seems like a lot of money. Couldn't this wait thirty hours? Man: In thirty hours it'll be pure zephyrum!

    • Hank: Where am I supposed to get mice? Dale: I left a plate of bacon in your attic. You should have plenty by nightfall.

    • Dale: Count me out. The vast majority of unauthorized face removals happen to people in hospitals. Hank: You disappoint me, Dale. Dale: Get in line.

    • Bill: John Force is the greatest funny-car racer ever. He's done more in a quarter-mile than I've done in my whole life.

    • Tagline: "Flapjacks!" (Cowbell rings) -Peggy

    • Bobby says he will be a shoo-in for class clown if he gets to do the morning announcements. However, in "What Makes Bobby Run," Connie says the year book is no longer allowed to do the end-of-the-year categories because "last year's worst-dressed winner turned out to be really poor."
