Episode Summary

EDIT
While preparing for the big lawn mower races in Durndle, Hank experiences back trouble. When he goes to the doctor, he is told that he has a genetic disorder called Diminished Gluteal Syndrome (DGS), meaning that he has such a small rear end that it puts added stress on his spine. The doctor gives Hank a prosthetic butt to wear, but the shame of it is too much until Peggy gets him to go to a DGS support meeting.moreless

  • Not Too Bad, Butt it Could Have Been Better

    This is a bit of a letdown after the last few episodes, but it is still a pretty good KOTH episode. It had some humorous moments, and has a fun plot line. The best scene has to be the keep away scene. I liked how they got Hank to go to the support group in a believable way, as he normally wouldn't do that. I think things worked well together, and in the end the episode is a pretty decent one. Worth at least a watch through once.moreless
  • I liked this episode.

    8.5
    This was a really good episode of King of the Hill. I gave it a higher rating because of the funny story and plot. The comedy was funny and I liked everyone in the episode. They all had a part that was funny and mixed well with the show. I thought that Dale was a complete waste in this episode. If I were Hank, I would have pounded his face into the ground for trying to ruin the mower contest. Bobby was funny, and Peggy actually didn't bother me for once. Overall, this was a good episode that was entertaining. Thank you.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Bill (about a lawn mower riding competition): I'm trying to lose weight so I have a better chance in the mower race.
      Hank: Well, Bill, you could lose 100 pounds and you still wouldn't be able to take a corner like me.
      Bill: Well, I've got news for you. I could never lose 100 pounds...

    • Dale: Keep talking, bubble butt!
      Bill: I wasn't saying anything.
      Dale: Not you, I was talking to Hank.

    • Peggy: You have one butt cheek slightly larger than the other, just like my feet.
      Hank: Yeah, we're made for each other.

    • Dr. Tate: Mr. Hill, you have a compression of the discs in your lower back.
      Hank: Uh-huh. Do you get a lot of this in your patients who race mowers?
      Dr. Tate: A lawnmower didn't cause this. It's genetic.
      Peggy: Genetic as in fatal?
      Dr. Tate: No. Mr. Hill, you were born with no muscle mass here, no cushioning. For years you've basically been sitting on your spine. You suffer from a disease called Diminished Gluteal Syndrome, or DGS.
      Hank: I don't understand. What does that mean?
      Dr. Tate: Mr. Hill, you have no ass.

    • Dale: What information have you brought me, Octavio?
      Octavio: Bill is losing weight, jefe. He is eating only oranges and ham sandwiches.
      Dale: Blast! We will still win, but we must train twice as hard. Octavio, release the chicken.

    • Cotton: Good Lord, Hank, you're wearin' butt-boobies!
      Hank: It's not for my buttocks, it's for my back.
      Cotton: Didi, put your fake ta-tas next to Hank's. We'll see who has the bigger melons!
