Episode Summary

EDIT

When Hank asks Peggy to design an art piece for Strickland Propane, she creates the "Probot", a statue made out of propane tanks. Her sculpture is rejected by the city board, but picked up by an art dealer from Dallas. Unfortunately, Peggy finds out that the dealer presents her to the public as an uneducated hillbilly. Dale starts wearing a suit of armor and uses his new found invincibility to insult people without consequences.

    7.0
    This episode wasn't completely boring, but it wasn't very good either. In fact, without the B Plot being so great, this would be one of the worst episodes of the entire series. I just don't like Peggy centred episodes, especially ones where she isn't being proven wrong about something. The main plot, wasn't horrible, but there were almost no funny moments in it. As mentioned above, this episode was saved by a great and classic B Plot, with Dale in the armour and Bill, of course, being the one that gets hurt constantly.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Dale (Falls to the ground in his armour and can't get up): Bill, roll me over so I can kick your ass. Actually just move your ass closer.

    • Dale: Sure, Peggy can make a metal man, but I'm living it!

    • (Dale is marching down the alley in his suit of armor as people stare)
      Dale: Soft shells - cower before me!!

    • Bill: You know what I never understood? Why a pretty girl would model naked and let someone paint her. And if she'd do that for just anyone....

    • Hank: (to art gallery owner) I need to buy a piece of public art, about three feet across, five or seven feet tall. Doesn't have to be real arty; no nudity, of course. Maybe something with a lion or a bald eagle - something that says America!

    • Buck Strickland: They passed this new public art law. Got to beautify one part of town before they let you uglify another. Keeps things nice and even.

    • (Someone in a suit of armor walks into the alley and opens the cage on the front. When the smoke clears it's revealed to be Dale)
      Dale: They were having a going out of business sale and guess what I bought?
      (Hank Stares at Dale silently)
      Dale: A suit of armor!

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Don Quixote's Authentic Spanish Cuisine and Karaoke

      The restaurant Dale buys his suit of armor from is named after the main character in the famous novel Don Quixote de la Mancha by Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. The story follows a man, Alonso Quixano, who becomes convinced he is a knight named Don Quixote and begins a quest for adventure - at one point, he attacks windmills he imagines are giants.

    • Peggy: Stupid da Vinci with his stupid classical training.

      Leonardo da Vinci is probably best-known for painting the "Mona Lisa." He was a prolific Renaissance artist and inventor.

    • Title: Ceci N'est Pas Une King of the Hill
      The title is a reference to a painting by the French artist Rene Magritte. He drew a picture of a pipe with the caption "Ceci N'est Pas Une Pipe" (This is not a pipe), to raise issues about the nature of representation in art. The use of that phrase in the title is just part of the "art" theme of the episode.
