  • Bill is in another state of depression and Hank refuses to let Dale make fun of Bill, so that Bill doesn't get too depressed again. When he winds up joining an all-male chorus, the Harmonaholics, Dale can barely contain himself. Bill really loves the group, but they tell him he must make sacrifices, including his job. This leads to Bill missing a ton of work, and the guys find out Bill is about to go AWOL, unless they can stop him. Peggy and Bobby battle each other in Pong.moreless

  • Bill is feeling depressed, so Hank takes him to church, where he winds up joining all-male chorus the Harmonaholics, but the chorus starts to take over Bill's life and jeopardise his job. Meanwhile, Peggy and Bobby become addicted to Pong. A so-so episode

  • Some parts are good. Other parts will make you watch or rewatch a KOTH episode that didn't suck.

  • Quotes (7)

    • (the Harmonaholics drop Bill off in the alley) Dale: What the hell was that? Bill: I joined a men's chorus. (Dale muffles a laugh) Bill: It's called the Harmonaholics. Dale: More like the Assahol-- Hank: (interrupting) Dale!

    • Hank: So... I noticed a lot of those chorus guys had wives.

    • Hank: Bill, I'm taking you to the one place that can fix whatever you've got going on inside you. You know, the despair and whatnot.

    • Dale: (To Bill) BILL!! Bill, you have to be the stupidest man on the planet to think this is a good idea! Have you seen what you're wearing?! That outfit makes you look like a sequined trainwreck! LOOK AT YOU! You're part of a twelve-headed jackass! This choir is the feces that is produced when shame eats too much stupidity! You people make me envy the deaf and the BLIND!! UNDERWEAR!! MONEY! FAT!! (passes out)

    • Bill: If I didn't go to work tomorrow, I don't think anyone would notice. Dale: Yes they would... when there is suddenly enough food to go around. (pause) The point I'm trying to make is that you are fat.

    Notes (3)

    • The Harmonaholics are based on the Dallas-based men's chorus the Vocal Majority

    • The first song the Harmonoholics sing, when Bill discovers them, and then sing again later is "When I Fall In Love" by Peabo Bryson. Bill's audition song is "Singin' in the Rain" by Gene Kelly. When Bill gets dropped off they all sing "For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow". The first song in the performance where the guys attend is "Happy Together" by The Turtles, and the second is "Summer Nights" from the movie "Grease".

    • When Hank says "We've seen him (Bill) like this before, and it ended with me spending Christmas pulling his head out of the oven", it is referring to the episode "Pretty, Pretty Dresses".

    Trivia (2)

    • Tagline: The Harmonaholics making funny noises.

    Allusions (2)

    • At the end of the performance the Harmonaholics go "EH!" just like The Fonz did in the show "Happy Days".

    • The title of the episode is a reference to the famous saying "it ain't over till the fat lady sings".
