Episode Summary


Hank's co-worker, Enrique, is having marital problems, and starts spending all his time with Hank. Even though he feels he should stay out of it, Hank reluctantly agrees to help Enrique get back together with his wife. Hank, is also trying to repave his driveway with his friends. Bobby tries to unblock the Fox network from the Hills' TV so he can watch the Daytona 500, which he believes is a reality show.


Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Most of the Laughs are From Enrique, But Still Good!

    This wasn't really a bad episode, but it wasn't all that funny. It was entertaining, and the plot was pretty decent. But there were only a few laughs. I did feel badly for Enrique, and I think the way it ended seemed rushed, as I highly doubt that he would so easily have gotten back together with his wife, but it was very typical Hank. I did enjoy the mini B Plot of the pavement stuff, especially the jack hammer record. I also enjoyed the actual B Plot with Joseph and Bobby, even though it wasn't all that funny. It was one of the more entertaining episodes of the ones that lack humour, so that is pretty good!moreless
  • Hank's colleage Enrique is having problems at home, and tries to befriend Hank and the Hill family and spend most of his time with them. Meanwhile, Bobby and Joseph try to unblock the Fox channel on the Hills' television. An average sort of episode...moreless

    This episode is very much based around Hank's co-worker Enrique. Ordinarily he is a secondary (at most) character who gets a couple of lines per season if he's lucky.

    This isn't a good or bad story, just average. The best moments come as Hank feels more and more awkward as Enrique tells him about his troubled home life - bearing in mind that Hank is awkward with people's personal problems at the best of times.

    The b-plot revolves around Bobby and Joseph trying to unblock Fox on the televison to watch Daytona 500 (which they mistake to be a raunchy show). This started off well, but I felt that they could have milked it more. And I expected it to end up that Hank was pleased to find his son watching sport, but it never happened.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Enrique (as he is hanging around the driveway construction scene while Hank is encouraging him to leave): Hank, my marriage is falling apart! I'm so unhappy, I don't know what to do! You're the only one in the world I can turn to!
      Hank (clearly uncomfortable by this outburst): Okay then. I'll see you at work.(closes screen door).

    • Dale (Inspecting Hank's driveway): Well, it's either just a crack in the driveway, or the Chinese are making their move

    • (Boomhauer using the jackhammer)
      Dale: Ride it!
      Bill: Ooh, hang on! Hang on! You got it!
      Dale: And nine seconds! A new record! Congratulations, Boomhauer!
      Bill: My turn! My turn!
      (Jackhammer hits Bill in groin)
      Dale: And one second!

    • Dale: Dang it, Hank, we've been waiting forever to work on the driveway. We're almost too drunk to use power tools.
      Bill: (belches) Beg pardon.

    • Joseph: Dude, did you see the billboard for that new show? It's got a chick sitting on a race car, pouring champagne on a dude.
      Bobby: What's it called?
      Joseph: I think they're calling it Daytona 500.
      Bobby: 500 what? 500 bachelors? 500 dwarves? Oh, look at me, I'm already hooked!

    • Dale: Hank, I spit in the concrete, so when I mysteriously disappear you'll be able to create the perfect neighbor... half-man, half-driveway.

    • Bobby: You know what would be a good way to teach me responsibility? You unblock the Fox network and I promise not to watch it.
      Hank: Is it football season?
      Bobby: No.
      Hank: Then it's blocked.

    • Bobby: Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Daytona 500.
      (after watching for a few seconds)
      Bobby: This is it? It's just a bunch of cars going around in circles.
      Joseph: It'll get better.
      Bobby: You think?
      Joseph: Like maybe the Hilton twins will have to run across the track.
      Bobby: I hope SOMETHING happens.
      (a crash takes place)
      Bobby and Joseph: Cool.

    • (After Enrique takes Bill's sledgehammer & starts using it himself)
      Bill: (pouting) But I'm Thor!

  • NOTES (2)


    • The show that Enrique watches at the Hills house is "Everybody Loves Raymond".

    • The title is a play on "irreconcilable differences", which is one of the reasons a married couple can use when filing for divorce.

    • Bill: I am... mighty Thor!
      Thor is the Norse god of thunder whose weapon is a hammer.

    • Reality TV Host: You have to eat your old nose and lips!

      The Fox reality show Bobby and Joseph watch is a parody of the cheesy Fox reality show "The Swan" (where women get plastic surgery) combined with a bit of NBC's "Fear Factor" (where people do gross things to get prizes).
