  • What an ending!

    10
    Another incredible episode in this incredible season. It ends just like it starts, with a huge bang! This is overall one of the best seasons, and this is arguably one of the best season finales. My biggest regret is not seeing it new, as I think the shock of what happened to Peggy would have been more impactful, not knowing what would happen. This episode not only had great plots, but was really funny too. Topsy was hilarious, and I wish he was in more episodes during the run of the series. All the characters play a good role and help create a very realistic situation, with hilarious results. I like how it links back to the beginning of the season and shows how Peggy still really wants a child. Even though it is obvious Peggy doesn't die (even if this was your first time watching it), the ending is still really shocking and one of the best ever on any show. A classic episode, for a classic season.moreless

    bobby needs to drive didi to the hospital when she goes into labor and cotton is no where to be found.



    pretty good cliffhanger end to the 3rd season. i liked this episode a lot, but the beginning is kind of slow. but the cliffhanger is fun and really makes you wonder if peggy survives. overall grade for this episode- a B+ or somoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Before Cotton asks Didi for a cigar she is wearing a pink dress over a light purple shirt. Whilst she is lighting the cigar she is now wearing an orange top.

    • There was no tagline for this episode as it had a closing scene at the end.

    • From this season forward most season finales change the opening theme slightly by adding triangles being played along with the yeehaw (first heard in the Season 2 finale), at the very beginning.

    • After the party, when Peggy is fighting with Hank she tosses the cutlery into the sink, next to the blue dishes. In the next shot, the dishes are green.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Bobby: I don't know where the hospital is around here!
      Didi: Why don't you stop and ask for directions?
      Bobby: Are you crazy? I'm too young to be driving! But I know where the Arlen hospital is! We'll be there in two hours, can you hold it?!
      Didi: (moans and sobs as they pass a sign that says "Arlen 92 miles")

    • Peggy: Whatever happened to that young couple who dreamed of inventing a new steak sauce, or taking a train to Alaska?
      Hank: That couple just grew up and realized that there was too much competition among existing steak sauces. We did ourselves a favor by abandoning those dreams.

    • Cotton: Bobby, this ain't no Basky Robbins vacation! Didi's with child! She's useless! Now, you can start by cleanin' the back o'my ears.

    • Luanne: Bobby, my camping trip's been cancelled and the shelter says I have to be battered to stay there. So can I go with you to Cotton's?
      Bobby: No way. This is my last chance for Grandpa to spoil me before the baby's born. You stay away from him. He's mine. He doesn't even know your name.
      Luanne: Yes, he does. I'm "Missy Melons."

  • NOTES (3)

    • The song Hank sings along to is "Happy Anniversary" by Little River Band.

    • Bill says that he only got to the Wood Anniversary, which means he was married for five years.

    • The version of "Free Fallin'" played during the end credits is performed by Deana Carter and is not the Tom Petty version. Interestingly enough, Tom Petty would later have a recurring role on the show as Lucky.
