  • Pumped Up!

    This was funny. Plain and simple. It wasn't a great plot, but it was very funny. One of the funniest of the season. In fact one of the funniest of the last few seasons. I liked all the characters in this one, including the body builders. Each character brought humour to the episode and the jokes were non-stop (for the most part). There isn't too much to say, as there are too many good moments to point out specifics, so I will leave it with, GREAT!moreless
  • A bunch of things.

    I thought this was an okay episode. Maybe it was better than okay, so I will say pretty good in terms of comedy. I thought whenever Bill is featured more than usual it is going to be a funny episode. I liked the entire story of the show. Bill joining body builders was hilarious. I thought seeing him try to fit in was painful but funny. The body builders were also really funny and added a sense of ridiculousness to the episode. It had some really good bits scattered throughout the show and it was decently written. So I was entertained quite well. Thank you.moreless
  • Bill with muscles.

    This was a pretty good episode that they did I am glad that they showed some new people on the show. I thought it was a good plot with Bil to start working out and getting in to good shape like he was in high school. I think that the best part was when Bill got hurt and he kept trying to leave and his body builders would'nt let him. I also liked seeing Macho Man Randy Savage he was one of my favorite wrestlers growing up and I'm still a wrestling fan today.

    Well to get back to the show I really liked it.moreless
  • Bill becomes a body builder.

    To get in shape for a Army physical, Bill makes a home gym for him and the neighbors. He hires private body builders who push him really hard. Bill soon becoms one of them and its up to Hank to help Bill out. I thought this was one of the better episodes this season even though this season wasnt that bad. There were alot of funny jokes such as Luanne looking at Bills arms and saying "His arms are having a heart attack!" and when Bill gets trapped under the weight and the body builders dont realize he's hurt.moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Hank: No Bill, only you can get you into shape.
      Bill: Sure. And while I'm at it, maybe I'll fly to the moon and marry a mermaid!

    • (Bill is admiring his muscular arms in the mirror as he gives a soldier a hair cut)
      Other Barber: You know the military physical is mostly running on a treadmill, right?
      Bill: Run?! (kisses each of his biceps) These guns run from nothin'!

    • (One of the body builders is showing Luanne an exercise and flexes his bicep so hard his veins bulge out)
      Luanne: Ahhh! His arm's having a heart attack!!

    • Doctor: You need to start eating right, but what you really need is exercise. Have you considered joining a gym?
      Bill: A gym? But, I can't work out in front of all those healthy people. I'm too fat!
      Hank: You're too fat to go to a gym?
      Dale: Poor Bill! Too fat to work out and not fat enough to live in bed.

    • Bill: It's important to me to make everyone look good, but I never forget that my main job is to make everyone's head fit in the helmet.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Dirk: Do you know how I got these (muscles)?
      Bill: Spinach? 
      This is most likely referring to Popeye the Sailor Man, who would get really big muscles when he ate spinach.

    • Many times during this episode guest star Randall Poffo says "Ohhhh Yeahhhh dig it!!!". This used to be Poffo's signature phrase as WWF/WCW professional wrestler Randy 'Macho Man' Savage.
