Episode Summary

EDIT

After Bobby gets rid of soda machines in the school, because he feels they are the reason he is single, he attracts the attention of a girl. When the teachers and Principal Moss put in a ticker advertising energy bars to help pay for a teacher's retreat, Bobby finds this as the perfect opportunity to protest and win over the girl. However, he takes it too far and the students all walk out and riot in the town. Dale wants to put a book together of quotes from the gang, but no one has anything to say.

    This is another pretty good episode. The plot was decent and it had a lot of funny moments. Not quite as good as the premiere but it is still worth watching. The B plot had a good concept and did have some funny moments, but it could have been much better. It really seems like it was just something to fill time. I think something this show did too much was repeating plot points. Bobby trying to win over a girl and it going wrong, happened before, and even though the episode itself is good, it didn't really need to happen again. I still really liked it though, and overall it is a good, funny episode.moreless

    I don't really give a low rating to King of the Hill episode's but I did for this one. I thought it was good but it could have been way better. It was good seeing Bobby like another girl but I would like to see him start dating Connie again maybe it will happen in the last season. So back to the episode, I liked the basis of it and I thought it was written well. It was real funny when Bobby get mad of and try to go off and protest I hate people that are like that but I could never hate BOBBY HILL.moreless

    Bobby is trying to impress a girl by boycotting soda machines. When that succeed bobby and the girl became close. this episode in question is about looking back on the protest of the 1960's. Bobby trying to impress the girl by bring out the spirit of the protest. When the protest gets out of hand, bobby turns to Hank who knows more Bobby. I like Bobby because he's a sweet kid and not a trouble maker like Bart Simpsons. this epsiode just like the past, Bobby knows how to handle problem. Bobby just want to be Bobby and that's okay with me.moreless
