    This is a very good episode, that does what KOTH is best at, realistic situation with a humorous twist. It was a very well written episode, that had a lot of things going for it. Strickland and Dale where at the top of their game, being their typical selves. Hank and Bobby finding common ground, and a lack of Peggy in the episode. The plot line was entertaining and it was actually a very funny episode. Seems like KOTH wanted to go out with a bang, as the season has started off very strong!moreless
  • This is superb episode.

    This is a great episode even though I hate 'Going Green' more than life itself. Buck tries to show the customers that he has changed by 'Going Green' he finds it hard though so he takes the easy way out and buys carbon offsets. When he finds out it can impress the ladies he supports it even more by going as far as having a concert for carbon offsets. One of the best parts off the episodes is what Hank says at the very end about how the one tree is not going to make a difference and how you should not do things just because their fashionable. This is how I also feel and I think that the writers of the show put how they feel about this 'Going Green' stuff into this episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Girl in Band: (on the environment)
      I was watching a documentary about Antarctica. It was so sad; if all the ice melts, where will the penguins dance?

    • Hank: Well son, congratulations, you've put out your first 'Mr. Strickland' fire. Put out 100 more and you'll be tied with me.

    • Bobby: Wow, dad. Between all the boring stuff you're doing and all the exciting stuff I'm doing, we're gonna save the world!

    • Dale: I guess this is what happens when God gets lazy and humans have to pick up the slack (looking up and yelling). What else do you want from me!??!

    • Peggy: A concert! That's the smartest way for Strickland to get their huevos out of the frying pan I've ever heard of.

    • Dale: Strickland agreed to let me plant trees on land he's not using, Bobby and Joseph agreed to do the work, and I agreed to take the money!

    • Hank: You can't pay someone else to do the work for you! You have to do it yourself. I mean, look at Bobby and Joseph working over there.
      Dale: What? Joseph doesn't work!
      Hank: Usually, Bobby doesn't, either.

    • Hank: About that Science teacher of yours. Does he ever talk about 'Going Green'?
      Bobby: I dunno. Do you ever talk about propane? My point is, he talks about it all the time.

    • Hank: Dang it, Mr. Strickland. I don't know you can be Strickland Propane's biggest asset and our biggest liability at the same time.

    • Hank: What the heck is a carbon offset?
      Dale: It's like a 'Get out of Jail Free Card' for people concerned about the environment, but not concerned enough to do actually do anything.

    • Enrique: If we don't have an environment, where will we do stuff? Think about it!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Strickland: "I'm just like that Indian who say pollution in that old commercial, except instead of crying I got up off my ass and did something about it!"

      The commercial Strickland is referring to is a famous 70's Anti-Pollution PSA featuring Iron Eyes Cody, called Keep America Beautiful.

    • Woman: I just saw a documentary about Antarctica. If all of the ice melts, where will the penguins dance?
      This "documentary" that the woman sees is most likely the cartoon movie "Happy Feet" about dancing penguins.

    • Nancy: You used to pollute, but now you give a hoot; what changed?

      Famous 1970s slogan "Give a hoot, don't pollute" by Woodsy Owl.

    • The title is an allusion to the 1988 movie Earth Girls Are Easy, a comedy starring Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum.
