When comparing himself to Willie Nelson, Hank mentions Nelson's troubles with the IRS, then how he himself spent quite a bit of time filling out his tax return, and finishes off with a grumble about the IRS 1040EZ form. However, Hank would not file a 1040EZ for several reasons:
1] There is no mortgage interest deduction, assuming Hank and Peggy's mortgage is large enough to qualify.
2] There is no allowance for the educator expense deduction which Peggy might be entitled to if (among other things) she worked 900 hours in a school year.
3] You cannot claim a dependant such as Bobby, or possibly Luanne.
(Bobby accidentally drives Hank's mower into his truck)
Hank: Cripes, Bobby. What happened to my truck?
Bobby: Your mower hit it.
Hank : Well maybe I outta send my mower to one of those children psychologists.
(Bobby's at Willie Nelson's house; Hank has come to pick him up from 'stalking')
Bobby: Hey, dad.
Willie Nelson: Hank, Bobby's been telling me all about you. I hear you're a guitar player and that you've got a narrow urethra.
Willie Nelson: He had me autograph your guitar.
Hank: You signed my guitar?
Willie Nelson: "To my number-one fan".
Bobby: I'm at Willie Nelson's, and he wants you to come over.
Hank: Son, you're teasing the gorilla in the monkey house.
Hank: You don't understand, Peg. A man only gets a chance to meet Willie Nelson once in his life. It's supposed to be special.
(Hank is bringing Bobby to play golf with him, but he is also bringing his guitar, Betsy, to get fixed)
Hank: Careful, Peggy. Betsy isn't strapped in yet.
Peggy: Oh, do not tell me you are taking that thing golfing with you now.
Hank: Don't be silly, Peg. Just bringing her in to get fixed. Sit in the middle, son. I want to make sure Betsy's in front of the air bag.
Hank: You know, I've been thinking, son and I realized you don't have any goals. You got to figure out what you want to do with your life.
Bobby: Can we go to Six Flags?
Hank: (sighs) I think you need a role model, Bobby. A hero. Someone besides that Broccoli Neck.
Bobby: How about Eddie Stillson? Can I emulate him?
Hank: Now, there you go-- Eddie Stillson. Which one is he? The space shuttle astronaut or the stock car champ?
Bobby: He got to the end of level six in Scream Ninja.
Hank: Bobby, when I say "hero" I don't mean some weird gameboy freak.
Hank: Don't even try to take credit for that.
Dale (monotonously): It was not done by me. It was done through me.
Willie Nelson: You the kid who rakes my yard?
Bobby: No, I'm the kid who hit you on the head.
Willie Nelson: With a rake?
Bobby: No, with a golf club.
Willie Nelson: You've been raking my yard with a golf club? I want my quarter back.
Bill: Santa Claus can be the boy's hero. He does travel around once a year in a 24 hour period.
Hank: Santa Claus is for babies!
Bill: You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
On the Season 1 DVD this episode and "Luanne's Saga" are switched, because the DVD went by production order, and the other episode was produced first.
This is the first time a celebrity guest voiced himself.
Bill: "You're a mean one Mr. Grinch"
This is in reference to the Dr. Suess book, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" as well as the cartoon movie. In the movie there is a song, and there is a line that goes "you're a mean one Mr. Grinch..."
Hank's song about Peggy is remarkably similar to the Buddy Holly song "Peggy Sue." Even Hank admits that it goes into a "Buddy Holly riff" at the end.
Hank: Why can't Bobby turn all that energy into something positive, like that boy with no legs who ran across Canada?
This is referring to Terry Fox. Terry had to get a leg amputated because of cancer, and later ran across Canada with only one real leg to raise money for cancer research.
Man at Guitar Store: You mean like Celery Head? "Look, I'm Camembert Humperdinck!"
This variation of the playing a guitar with cheese routine is another pun, this time on Engelbert Humperdinck.
Bobby: You play the guitar with a piece of cheese and go, 'Hey look at me, I'm Eddie Cheddar!'
Celery Head's joke is a pun on 'Eddie Vedder', the lead singer of Pearl Jam, although 'Vedder' is not known as a guitarist.
Bobby: (describing Celery Head) The world's best comedian. He glues things. Like, he'd glue a tissue box to a tennis sneaker and say, "This is in case you have a runny nose!"
Celery Head, the prop comic Bobby admires, is probably based on prop comic Carrot Top.
