Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Such a Nutty Episode

    Not only is this one of the best episodes of Season 6, it's also one of the best season premieres and one of the best episodes period! This episode has everything that makes up a good KOTH episode. It has a great plot, funny lines from all the characters and too many hilarious moments to count. Everything about this episode just works, and probably has the best line ever on the show: "That's my purse, I don't know you!" And it's not that the line is funny, it's who says it and how he says it. This is a must see episode, that even if you aren't a KOTH fan you need to watch! What a great way to start a season.moreless
  • One of the Most Normal Episodes

    This episode is very hilarious. It is easily one of the most well easily quoted episodes of the series.

    Bobby starts becoming a bully, kicking people's groins, a move he learned at a women's self-defense course. But soon he goes overboard- probably around the time he kicks Hank's groin.

    So, Bobby is punished, but he realizes {with some help from Kahn} that since Hank cannot get up, Bobby can be the man of the house.

    So Bobby and Peggy get in a fight over a Gameboy, and when Bobby tries to kick Peggy's groin, he realizes women don't have testicles- or at least Peggy doesn't.

    A hilarious episodemoreless
  • Bobby needs to take a class so he can fight his own battles. He goes to one that teacthes him to fight by kicking testicles. After Bobbly becomes a bully Hank must teach Bobby not to fight that way which leads Bobby to rebel and cause major pain for Hank.moreless

    This episode is Hill-arious (sorry I couldn't resist). This is brillant writting and a perfect example of how animated sitcoms have more freedom than live action sitcoms. I don't think this episode would be half as good live. This is one of those stories where the plot is out of the ordinary but still believable, which is what King of the Hill does best. I can honestly say that this is my favorite episode for its clever dialouge and laugh out loud moments. I cracked up every time Bobby sayed "that's my purse" and "I don't know you". If you havent seen this episode yet I highly suggest you do.moreless
  • I never stopped being entertained.

    This was one of the funniest King of the Hill episodes of the entire series. It was absolutely hilarious. I have to say that the writers did a nice job with the plot and the comedy was great. Everything played out so well and it was really entertaining from beginning to end. I can't choose my favorite parts because there are so many to choose from. One of my favorites had to be where Bobby kicks Hank. Another would have to be where he kicks Peggy, but nothing happens. The look on Bobby's face was classic! Overall, this episode was wonderfully hilarious. Thank you.moreless
  • Bobby learns to kick low, Hank tries to make him unlearn the lesson and should regret it.

    One of my favorite episodes.

    Personally, I have grown to dislike Hank more and more as the seasons progress, since he acts so ignorant and obnoxious, especially towards Bobby (fine parenting, Hank; try and force the kid into being mini-Hank, which will ultimately drive him away).

    Sorry, back to the point.

    One of my favorite parts is Hank's misguided attempts to teach Bobby to hit above the belt, only Hank forgets the boy is no jock, so Bobby gets mad and nails Hank with a low kick.

    Like I said, there have been so many episodes that make me despise Hank that I love moments like that.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Luanne does not appear in this episode. This is the first Season Premiere to not feature Luanne, and the first to not have one of the main characters.

    • Tagline: "That's my purse! I don't know you!" -Bobby

    • At the beginning of the episode after Bobby and Joseph talk about spying on the girls they ride off in different directions. Later when Joseph is spying using the night vision goggles, it shows his house next to Connie's. However the Hill's house is in between the Gribble's and Souphanousinphone's, so both these scenes are wrong.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Kahn: I heard what you did to Chane Wasonasong. Unforgivable! But then I heard what you did to your father. Very funny. So I'm conflicted.

    • Bill: I wish I had a son to kick me in the nuts.
      (Dale kicks Bill in the groin)
      Dale: Be careful what you wish for.

    • Peggy: What about... the other one?
      Medic: We can't find it. But there's no cause for alarm. It'll probably turn up once the swelling goes down.

    • Clark: What are you gonna do? Are you gonna kick me in the nads?
      Bobby: Am I gonna do it? Yes. When am I gonna do it? Don't know. Could be tomorrow -- now! (Bobby kicks Clark between the legs) One thing you'll find out about me, Clark, is that I'm not a very patient person.

    • Bobby: I didn't go looking for trouble. Trouble came a-knockin' and Bobby Hill's foot answered the door.

    • Joseph: My dad says that whenever you're in a jail-type situation, the best way to survive is to take out the biggest guy there. That way you establish who's boss right from the get-go. Or you can hang yourself with your pants. He says that's another way to go.

    • Hank: Well, all right, son! You know, that Chane Wasonasong must know all kinds of Oriental martial arts, and you beat him with good old American YMCA know-how.

    • Bobby: That's my purse! I don't know you!

    • Kahn: Bobby Hill, out the window! Chane, you and your friends may use the door.

    • Susan: I'd leave, but I already paid your dad for the continental breakfast.

    • Bobby: You can't punish me!
      Hank: I'll tell you what I can't do - sleep on my stomach! But I can sure as heck punish you!

    • Peggy: (after being kicked between her legs) Ladies don't have testicles. Where's your secret weapon now?

  • NOTES (5)

    • The showrunners for season 6 (except for the season 5 holdovers) are Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger. They had been with King of the Hill since the first season, writing such classic episodes as "Westie Side Story" and "Nancy Boys."

    • Talmadge Blevins, IGN editorial director for videogames, considers this episode a classic, and that Bobby's line "That's my purse! I don't know you!" is one of the "most memorable lines ever uttered on television.

    • Pamela Adlon won the 2002 Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for playing Bobby Hill/Clark Peters/Chane Wasonasong. This episode was nominated for the 2002 Emmy award for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming Less Than One Hour).

    • The writer of this episode won the 2003 Annie Award for Outstanding Writing in an Animated Television Production.

    • This was the first King of the Hill episode (apart from the title sequence) to use digital coloring. For the rest of season 6 and 7, the show went back to traditional ink-and-paint, finally going all-digital in season 8.


    • Hank: Cassius Clay never fought below the belt.

      Cassius Clay was legendary boxer Muhammad Ali's name before he converted to Islam and changed it.
