Episode Summary

EDIT

When NHRA driver John Force needs an organ transplant, Dale is the only one who can save him. Hank encourages Dale to ignore his fear of hospitals and give up his kidney to save Force. Dale reluctantly agrees, but only if Hank takes his place being Dale for the day, a task that consists of outlandish duties. When it is revealed that Force doesn't need a kidney, Hank has to decide whether the already extracted kidney should go to a 10 year old boy. Bobby takes over the morning announcements and Peggy becomes his side kick to help him seem funnier.

  • Proud of This Episode!

    9.5
    Arguably the best of the season, which isn't surprising since Dale is the star of the episode. Both A and B plots are great, and have a lot of funny scenes. The whole concept of Dale trying to steal back his kidney is genius and Hank being Dale was perfect. I liked the Bobby/Peggy story, especially the Luanne scene. Everything in this episode just worked, and all the characters did a great job. This seemed like a classic episode of KOTH, going back to its glory days. Overall a fantastic episode!moreless

    When NHRA driver John Force wants an organ transplant, Dale is the only individual who can save him. Hank encourages Dale to pay no attention to his fear of hospitals and give up his kidney to save Force. Dale unwillingly agrees, but only if Hank takes his position being Dale for the day, a job that consists of bizarre duties. Overall this is a funny episode with Hank being Dale. It is hilarious. Dale and Hank are my favorite characters so this is a really good episode. Also Bobby's story is very good to. One of my favorite parts was when Peggy says "Flapjacks" that is a great part.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Tagline: "Flapjacks!" (Cowbell rings) -Peggy

    • Bobby says he will be a shoo-in for class clown if he gets to do the morning announcements. However, in "What Makes Bobby Run," Connie says the year book is no longer allowed to do the end-of-the-year categories because "last year's worst-dressed winner turned out to be really poor."

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Dale: Nancy, what's Redcorn doing in our shower?

    • Man: Look, Gribble's got a standing order for alien urine. Eight drums, $319. You won't find a better price.
      Hank: That seems like a lot of money. Couldn't this wait thirty hours?
      Man: In thirty hours it'll be pure zephyrum!

    • Hank: Where am I supposed to get mice?
      Dale: I left a plate of bacon in your attic. You should have plenty by nightfall.

    • Dale: Count me out. The vast majority of unauthorized face removals happen to people in hospitals.
      Hank: You disappoint me, Dale.
      Dale: Get in line.

    • Bill: John Force is the greatest funny-car racer ever. He's done more in a quarter-mile than I've done in my whole life.

    • (Hank has just broken the news to Dale that he promised his kidney to someone else after John Force didn't need it)
      Dale: YOU CAN'T DO THAT! I can't believe this, you were supposed to protect me! (heart monitor goes off) Oh god -They know I know- I'm in the network! Why isn't my head wrapped in tin foil?
      Doctor: Mr. Gribble, we're gonna need you to calm down... look at me! (injects him with a sedative)
      Dale: It's happening! The harvest has begun! How could you let this happen to me, Hank?! I trusted you! I... (passes out)
      Hank: Sorry Dale.
      Doctor: Mr. Hill, you have nothing to feel guilty about - that was just some typical post-op dementia, brought on by the anesthesia. It was not the real Dale talking.
      Hank: No, that was him.

    • Nancy: I couldn't help noticing, Sug, you're not eating any solids and you're only drinking clear fluids.
      Dale: That's because I'm donating my kidney to John Force tomorrow.
      Nancy: What?!
      Dale: Oh, did I not mention that? I won't be home for three days. Well, gotta go get shaved (gets up and walks towards the door) - love you!

    • Dale: (giving instructions about his kidney to the boy recieving it) At least once a week give him a can of Mountain Dew. He likes that.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Boomhauer: Just like dang ol' Grease Lightnin'!

      Boomhauer is referring to the race car "Greased Lightning" that some of the characters are repairing in the 1978 musical Grease, starring Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta.

    • The title is a play on John Gunther's classic book Death Be Not Proud.
