    Has anyone had a chance to see some KOTH scripts? I'm curious as to what the script says when Hank does one of his "AHHHHH!" moments when something strikes him unpleasant. In The Simpsons scripts, Homer's "D'OH!" is referred to as an annoyed grunt. So, I've taken to calling it Hank's annoyed grunt in reference. But, does anyone know what this is actually called?

    What, his "Bwhaaah" kind of sound? Sounds like some kind of startled noise. I used to leave my television on closed captioning and I know what you mean by Homer's annoyed grunt. I don't know if Hank's noise really has a name.

    Yeah, the BWHAAAH sound. It also has lighter inflections like "Ahhhhhh" or sometimes an UGH quality to it. Or the indescribable one where Bobby kicked Hank in the crotch.

    I was about to say, "Bwaaah" is more of a sound of exasperation than a grumble.

    BWHAAAH is one of the best lines from KOTH.

    Looks like one of the titles from this season may have answered this question. The one where Hank breaks his nose is listed as having the title "Bwah My Nose." So, it looks like the answer may be Bwah.
