  • Episode Description
  • When Hank's boss, Buck Strickland, has another heart attack, Hank expects to be put in charge of the company while Buck is recuperating. Instead Buck picks Lloyd Vickers, a business-school graduate, and puts Hank in charge of feeding his dogs. At Buck's house, Hank discovers that Buck's stove is electric, not propane. Realizing that Buck is just in propane for the money, Hank considers leaving the propane business and opening up a general store instead.moreless

  • Snow Job centers the action in Arlen around the first snowfall the town has seen in ages. Texans aren't ready for this and luckily Hank Hill is on hand and dedicated enough to carry them all through this.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (12)

    • (after Peggy has told him he won't be getting propane from Hank)
      Dale: Fine. I'll just have to barter for it. (turns and yells across lawn) Bill! You like pumpkin-pie filling?

    • (Dale has just gifted Peggy some of his water chestnuts, and now wants a favor from her)
      Dale: I only have a three-week supply of propane but you'll get Hank to hook me up. You owe me.
      Peggy: Well, I'm sorry, Dale. Hank may be in charge now but you are not going to get any special treatment. Hank's priorities are propane first family second, friends third -- in that order.

    • Dale: (passing boxes to Joseph and Nancy in the basement/cellar) I bought enough canned food to last us through this storm and the civil unrest that will inevitably follow. (beat) Hope you like water chestnuts.

    • Bobby (as Buck commented that Bobby's on his way to being a propane man, and that he could one day fill his dad's shoes): But if I do that, where will my dad sit? Buck: Well son, at the rate he's going, he'll be sitting in the boss' chair! Hank: There's no need for that, sir. I'll just keep my own chair and wheel it up to your desk when the time comes.

    • Bobby: Look Ma, ash! There must be a volcano nearby! Peggy: That's....snow! Everyone, stay calm. I've been through this before when I was in Montana. Nobody lick any flagpoles!

    Notes (1)

    • Although not mentioned at the time, it is later revealed that Strickland is married. It seems odd that the wife couldn't feed the dogs. Obviously, they hadn't decided on him being married when this episode was produced.

    Trivia (7)

    • Two things wrong with the answering machine. First, most of them play from the first message left and go to the newest one, not start at the newest one. Secondly, the message Strickland left was 1, but when Hank listens to the answering machine the one that is 1, is not from Strickland at all.

    • Tagline: "Look at me, I'm a kitty! Rawr" -Peggy

    • The calendar Strickland was looking in had all '97 dates. This episode takes place in '98 (or at least airs there). However it is quite possible that this was done because it was animated in '97 and they didn't think about it being aired in '98. Also he was looking at November and December, so it could be a calendar that is 16 months.

    • When Dale gives Peggy the can of water chestnuts her can of salt she had disappears.

    • When Dale approaches Peggy with a can of water chestnuts, we see her sprinkling ordinary table salt on the grass. In the winter, people sprinkle rock-salt, but on their sidewalks and driveways -not on grass! While this might be a joke about how little Texans know, Peggy is from Montana where it snows all the time. She should know a bit more about salting. If it was Hank then it might make more sense.

    • Strickland: That Vickers screwed up worse than Jack Kennedy at Piggy Bays.

      Stickland is talking about President John F. Kennedy and the Bay of Pigs invasion which was an unsuccessful military invasion of Cuba on April 17th 1961.
