  • Hank is having trouble "making", so we take a trip to the doctor's office to get a camera tunneled up his backside to find the reason for the blockage. Much to his chagrin, everyone ends up finding out about his very personal problem.

    Hank, Peggy, Bobby and Luanne go through the trauma of Hank's incontinence and eventually the news leaks out to Nancy. Of course, this opens up the opportunity for Dale and all the guys to find out about this issue. Hank cannot tolerate folks knowing about his "bathroom problem". Later, the doctor tells him he may need an operation for this that may change the way he can live his life from now on. We watch as everyone enjoys a delicious steak buffet and other such niceties while poor Hank is only allowed to eat a measley salad. As the date of the operation approaches and we fear the worst, Hank opens up to Peggy like never before and that seems to cure the entire situation - fast!
