  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (10)

    • Hank: Huh, Kahn must be really good at this. I've never seen so many people happy to see him before. Bill: I've heard five people refer to Kahn as: 'the "Morning After" guy'.

    • Dale: In the world of Karaoke, stealing another man's song is like sleeping with his wife...and making him listen while other people cheer.

    • Kahn: Hello, Hank Hill. I accidentally got some of your mail. Hank: Hey, I've been waiting for Snap-On to send me their catalog for years. Kahn: Yeah, I know. I've been getting your catalog for years. I usually throw it out, but today I thought, "What the heck?" Hank: What has gotten into you, Kahn? Kahn: Ever since I started doing karaoke, nothing bothers me anymore. Not the General, not you guys, nothing. Hey, you guys want to come watch me sing? I'll put you on my guest list. Bill: I'm on a list!

    • Kahn: I was a big hit at the karaoke bar in Little Laos. The crowd loved me. They even took my picture and put it on the "Wall of Fame." Connie: Wow, Dad! That's so cool! Minh: Kind of reminds me of the rebel with shiny shirt and pompadour I met at disco in Laos. The General: Don't be so happy with yourself.You're just singing someone else's songs. No skill involved. Unlike poetry. I shall now recite a poem I wrote while awaiting trial at The Hague. (clears throat) So much depends upon inhumanity... and death. We must not forget yet we cannot remember/Death be not proud?/Then who?

    • General Gum: So, you're good with computer. Kahn: (pleased) Yes. General Gum: Then put MP3s on my watch!

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode.

    • In every other episode where you hear Kahn singing, his voice is really bad and sounds almost like his talking voice, however in this episode his voice sounds like an actual singing voice and is a bit better.

    • When Kahn is picking out hot sauce for the General, the bottles have a rooster on them. In the sixth season episode "Man Without a Country Club," Peggy and Hank meet the creator of the sauce at Nine Rivers Country Club, and Peggy mistakenly says she recognizes him from the picture on the bottle, but he informs her there is a rooster on it.
