  • Hank's Got the Willies is an episode featuring Willie Nelson as Hank's lifelong hero. Later, we see that Bobby is suffering from a case of hero-worship himself.

    This episode reveals the guitar playing skill of Hank Hill and brings Willie Nelson out of his dreams and into Arlen somehow. Hank's guitar (Betsy) has been a treasure to him all these years and he keeps is off limits to everyone else in the house; he values that guitar as though it were his actual spouse instead of Peg. Willie Nelson interacts with the cast in a very natural sequence outside his country estate and seemingly brings the Hill family together on the cusp of Hank and Peg's biggest fight to date. Bobby shows a great potential here as he confronts not a few tough emotional and tangible issues.
