  • An ok episode, but not my favorite. Nancy ends her affair with John Redcorn so she can focus on Dale.

  • Quotes (11)

    • Hank: (regarding the restaurant) Guess who I got to come with us?
      Peggy: Nancy and Dale.
      Hank: Oh, well I guess Nancy already told you.
      Peggy: Hank! I was joking!

    • Dale: I just wanted to apologize for beating you up last night.
      John Redcorn: You didn't beat me up. You hit me with a lamp.

    • Dale: I was at John... uhh, at the gun club, playing Russian Roulette. Nancy: Awww, did you win? Dale: You're not really familiar with the game, are you?

    • Dale: Boy, if they gave an Olympic medal in sexual gymnastics, I would've taken home the silver last night.

    • Bill: I thought you were withholding intimacy to preserve your life-force. Dale: I was, but then Hank had to go draggin' me and the old lady to some Italian Romanceria. Next thing you know, we're on our second honeymoon. Only this time, no cruise ship and I only vomited once. (Nancy overhears) Dale: I think I finally got to the point where I actually love her more than my mother.

    Notes (2)

    • The first song heard durring the roller skating scene is "Fly, Robin, Fly" by Silver Convention and the second is "Love Train" by The O'Jays. The song John Redcorn is listening to at the end is "Living After Midnight" by Judas Priest.

    • This is a major turning point in the series' run in that Nancy breaks up with John Redcorn. Dale is still in the dark about their relationship, which would provide fodder for future episodes.

    Trivia (5)

    • When Dale knocks John Redcorn the shape of the lamp he's holding changes between shots. The shape you can see changes between the shot of Dale knocking him out and the next shot that shows a wide shot of the people in the room. The other mistake in the shot is when Dale drops the remaining part of the lamp. Despite dropping it from about chest height the remaining part doesn't break when it's dropped.

    • When Dale is talking about getting the silver medal, you can see that on the wall, near the bed, there is a wind catcher. Once Nancy says "If you say so, I was pretty drunk", the wind catcher disappears.

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • Tagline: "Love train! Woo-woo!" -Dale

    • When Nancy sits on the bed after telling Dale she has an appointment with John Redcorn she is up by the head of the bed. Then when Dale first puts his head in her lap she is near the foot. In the close up of his head on her lap, she is back by the head of the bed.

    Allusions (1)

    • The episode title Nancy Boys alludes to the old euphemistic term for effeminate or gay men chiefly in the U.K. although usage may persist today as roughly equal to the terms "sissy" or "metro sexual" in some circles. The John Redcorn - Nancy - Dale triangle becomes disrupted in this episode with Dale secretly receiving therapy from John Redcorn in his trailer while Nancy gets stood up. Nancy then nearly walks in on them as Dale quickly puts his shirt back on. At the end Dale wonders aloud to Nancy if John Redcorn might be gay.
