  • Sex, Lies and Hank Hill

    10
    This is part one of what I feel is the best two parter of the series. There are a lot of laughs, and is a really good topic. One thing I've always appreciated about KOTH more than Simpsons and Family Guy is it is realistic to a degree. Things really can happen this way, they just find the humour in it. Simpsons and FG just make fun of everything they can and it is a bit annoying. This is a fantastic episode with two great plot lines. And a murder at the end? This is the "Who shot Mr. Burns?" of KOTH for sure!moreless
  • Food is interesting.

    Good show that reminded me of food. I thought that it was a really good episode about a place where you can eat. King of the Hill did a nice job with the plot, the writing, and the storyline for all involved. I liked the Hank being suspected in the murder of the mistress of Mr. Strickland. I thought that it was funny to see. Basically, this episode had a good dose of fun and humor to it. I especially liked the conflict of Mr. Strickland and Mrs. Strickland. It added some touch to the show and it was funny. Thank you.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Miz Liz: What's the worst job on this team?
      Hank: Worst paying or most degrading? Aw, hell, it's the same for both - tank wipe.
      Miz Liz: Debbie! You're on tank wipe!

    • (Peggy is holding her first staff metting at Sugarfoot's BBQ)
      Peggy: When people walk into Sugarfoot's, what's their first thought?
      Elvin: "I'm hungry"?
      Peggy: Uh-uh. It's "Why isn't this place good enough to be a chain?"

    • (The Hills are at the Propane Association awards when Buck and a pretty woman enter)
      Luanne: Mr. Strickland's wife is beautiful.
      Hank: That's not his wife. That's Debbie from work. A pretty girl like that should have been able to find a date.

    • Hank: Oh, God, I just had phone sex!

    • (After Hank rejects Debbie)
      Debbie: Hank! You get back here! Nobody dumps Debbie Grund!
      Hank: I just did.

    • Buck: Debbie, get me my flip flops, I'm going to shave in the pool!

  • NOTES (3)

    • The stamp that Peggy uses reveals her name to be Margaret J. Hill.

    • This is the first episode that introduces Miz Liz, Buck's wife. In fact, up until this episode, there was no mention that Buck was even married.

    • Mike Judge was nominated for the 2000 Annie Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement for Voice Acting by a Male Performer in an Animated Television Production as the voice of Hank Hill for this episode.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Buck: L'eggo of my Eggo


      This is the slogan for the waffle company Eggos

    • The character Little John and his introduction with Peggy Hill at Sugarfoot's barbecue counter partly alludes to a similar scene portrayed in the film adaptation of the novel Fried Green Tomatoes (at the Whistle Stop Cafe) by Fannie Flagg involving a similar character Big George the butcher (played by Stan Shaw) performing the same actions.

    • At the beginning of the episode, Hank is about to make a speech. Bobby asks if he can stand next to his dad and pretend to do sign language. Bobby undoubtedly got the idea from seeing coverage of NYC Mayor Guiliani's inaugural speech. Guiliani's son, Andrew, stood next to him during the speech, and made funny faces and mimicked Dad the entire time.
