    Season 6 gets back on track with the best episode since episode 6. Oddly, it was a Peggy episode. It was very funny with a very good plot. It's one of the few Peggy episodes I enjoy re-watching every now and then. Partly because it shows Peggy realizing she is wrong in the end. One of the best scenes has to be the "Would You Rather?" one, where Bill is, as always the butt of all the jokes. Another classic KOTH episode!moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Peggy: Billy, there you go, mhm-hmm, there...Student: Sister Peggy, I dropped my practice wafer on the floor.Peggy: Five-second rule.Hank: Excuse me, sister. I'm looking for..., Peggy?!Peggy: Holy crap!Hank: What are you wearing?Peggy: It is called a habit, sir, and you are drunk. I'll be right back. Danny, lead the room in a game of Bible hangman. Alright, I am going to be straight with you, I'm not really a nun. I am only pretending to be a nun so I can teach here.Hank: You would rather lie than sell an honest day's gas?Peggy: Hank, this is the best job I have ever had. I feel like I'm really making a difference in my student's lives.Hank: You're impersonating a nun! Peggy: With all the gajillion things that are right about this job, you zoom in on the one negative. It's not like I'm impersonating a Rabbi and circumcising people left and right. And people do that, you know. Hank: At least when Whoopi Goldberg impersonated a nun, she was running from gangsters.

    • Peggy: What was the last thing you were studying with the Mother Superior?
      Danny: Transubstantiation.
      Peggy: Trans what now?

    • Danny: Sister Peggy, does God have a last name?
      Peggy: I would have to say no. He only has one name, like Cher.
      Teresa: Sister Peggy, if cats can't pray, do they still go to heaven?
      Peggy: Well, I am not sure where I heard this, but all dogs go to heaven. So I am sure that cats do not.

    • Dale: My turn: Tongue-kiss a lizard, or take a shower in Bill's bathroom?
      Hank: Lizard.
      Boomhauer: Lizard, man, yo.
      Bill: Oh, why is the other choice always "Take a shower in Bill's bathroom?"

    • Peggy: Damn anti-bacterial soap. No one's getting sick any more. I should not have to sneeze in the faculty lounge coffee machine just to get a chance to teach. It is beneath me.

    • Peggy: Bobby Hill, put that phone down! The school could be calling me in to sub at any moment. What if an algebra teacher died in a car accident? It would be a tragedy if they couldn't reach me.

    • Hank: That's one clean burning hell, I tell you what!

  • NOTES (2)

    • Tagline: "Transubstantiation." - Danny "Trans what now?" - Peggy

    • Accoring to the original story on Fox.com, the original ending was for Peggy to learn about Catholicism from Bill and teach it to the Catholic students, then leave without revealing her identity. But the ending was changed prior to the airing of the episode to one in which Peggy comes clean.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Hank: At least when Whoopi Goldberg posed as a nun, she was hiding from gangsters. A reference to the movie Sister Act. Kathy Najimy (Peggy) played Sister Mary Patrick in that movie.

    • Title: Are You There, God? It's me, Margaret Hill

      This title is a reference to the Judy Blume book "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret", about a twelve-year-old girl dealing with issues of religion and puberty.
