  • Quotes

    • Hank: (about Luanne) Maybe she'll get food poisoning. You gave it to me that one time. You could do it again.
      Peggy: Excuse ME for making chicken tartare.

    • Luanne: Dear Lord, one of your creatures may be hurt tonight. Please let it be the other creature. Amen.

    • Luanne: My mama's in prison 'cause she fights so much. Do you think that there's some way her genes could have been passed down to me?

    • Luanne: If you were lookin' at me, I'm going to have to have both of your gym memberships revoked. And I would hate to do that, because you both look terrible.

    • Buck (After Hank sees Buck's maid in the inside of the house): What in the...(stuttering) OK, you caught me with my pants down.

    • Peggy: She is not gonna show tonight. She asked herself, what would Jesus do if he were a lady boxer? The answer: Not show.

    • Luanne: But I'm a great boxer! That's why the fans are always yelling, and hollering, and throwing dollar bills, and oh God, am I stupid.

    • Bill: Women boxing, huh? If they wear gloves, how do they scratch each other?

    • Luanne: I closed my eyes and I was thinking of those stupid guys in my math class... oh, and the guy in the parking lot... and that volunteer pool cleaner who always comes by when I'm swimming.
      Angela: Tell me about it. I once fell for a free breast examination in a bar.

    • Bobby: (watching a movie) Why don't the nerds just move across town instead of living right next door to the jock fraternity? That way, nobody'll be constantly breaking their gadgets.

    • George Foreman: How would you feel about carrying my grill in your shop?
      Hank: Oh, sorry. We have a strict policy about that. No novelty grills.
      George Foreman: Novelty grill?
      Hank: Yeah, no offense, but your grill is kind of like an iron.
      George Foreman: You're calling my grill an iron? I've been hit below the belt before, but nothing like this!

    • Hank: (hearing about Tae-Bo from Luanne) You mean it's like dancing?
      Bobby: Dad, can...
      Hank: No!

    • Luanne: I got too much self respect for that, even if every guy in the world thinks I'm a bimbo.
      Bobby: Guys suck!
