  • Trivia

    • There was no tagline for this episode as it had a closing scene over the credits instead of the theme song.

    • It only took Bobby 37 minutes to finish the 72oz Steak.

    • After Bobby has his last bite of the steak, there is still some fat left. But then when he gets up the only thing left on the plate is a bone.

  • Quotes

    • Connie: Bobby? Are you alright?
      Bobby: Yeah... I just ate a 72 ounce steak in 37 minutes--- (throws up, Connie smiles relieved that he's not sick over Marie)

    • Bobby: I had a prior engagement, but I can always tape it.

    • Hank: (sees his Ex in a restaurant) You can't let her get to you son. If you leave, she wins, and dating's all about who wins and who loses.

    • Luanne: Buckley and I weren't meant to be, and that's why he blew up.

    • Peggy: Your father and I have done things you can't even imagine.

    • Hank: Bobby, vegetarians can't be trusted. Just last week, we caught one of 'em siphoning gas out of a company truck.

    • Bobby: Look I'm doing your favorite comedy bit (pulls shorts up to shirt). What are you talking about? (starts to cry) What are you talking about? What are you talking about? (sobbing)

  • Notes

    • The songs playing in the part where Bobby is lying on the floor and listing to music are "There's a Tear in My Beer" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" both by Hank Williams Sr.

    • Bobby is the second person to order the 72oz Steak. The first was Mr. Holloway in Season 2's "The Company Man." In that episode they just brought it to his table, but here they have a special table all set up.

    • Starting with this episode, Richard Appel joins King of the Hill as an executive producer and showrunner. Appel had previously worked on The Simpsons where he wrote such episodes as "Mother Simpson" and "Bart After Dark."
