  • Trivia

    • In one scene Hank is scene in what looks like his garage trying to make noise to block out Luanne's crying, however, there is a window that looks out into the yard and into a window on the left that belongs to the den. This room is never seen again.

    • In this episode it seems that Dale lives across the alleyway, however for the rest of the series he lives next door to Hank.

    • When Boomhauer first pulls up next to Hank's house his car is close to the edge of Hank's property. After the break the car looks to be more in the middle of the road. Also, when Boomhauer drives home he just drives straight and then stops, but then when he and Luanne get out, he is tucked into his driveway a bit.

  • Quotes

    • Hank (Sees Luanne crying): Look at that, she's crying again. I guess she just got dumped by her new boyfriend, Boomhauer.
      Peggy (Under her breath): Boomhauer didn't dump her, you did.
      Hank: What? What was that?
      Bobby (Out loud): She said "Boomhaur didn't dump her, you did." (Pause) Pass the catsup.

    • Bill: Hank, maybe it's time to settle this.
      Hank: Yeah. I just hate these big emotional scenes. Well, let's get it over with. Boomhauer!
      Boomhauer: Yep?
      Hank: Beer?
      Boomhauer: Yep.
      Dale: That was beautiful.

    • Dale: That one's boomhauer's.
      Hank: That cradle robber's getting none of my beer.
      Dale: Boomhauer didn't do anything. And even if he did, why do you care? Luanne's not your relation.
      Hank: Hell, she's my wife's brother's daughter. You can't get any closer than that.

    • Hank: Why aren't you with Wade? I want Wade.
      Luanne: As soon as you left, Wade turned into Mr. Grabby Sam. I think that you just fixed me up with him so you could get your den back. Thank goodness, Boomhauer gave me a lift.
      Hank: A lift? Is that what they're calling it these days? You can't trust this guy. He's a no-good, immoral skirt-chasin' rascal.
      Luanne: So? At least you like him better than Buckley.
      Hank: You're saying he's your new boyfriend?
      Luanne: What if he is? You can't tell me what to do. You're not my father.
      Hank: You're damn straight I'm not. But while you're under my roof I'm your landlord. And as your landlord, I forbid you to date Boomhauer.
      Peggy: Shut up, Hank.
      Luanne: I can find another roof. I'll stay at Boomhauer's.
      Hank: Fine.
      Luanne: Fine!
      Boomhauer: This ain't gonna work out, man. Just flat out no, man.
      Luanne: Thanks, Boomhauer. let's go.
      Boomhauer: Dang ol' women from Mars, man, I'll tell ..
      Hank: Don't go in there, Luanne! I'm warning you! You'll be sorry! Damn it.
      Dale: This neighborhood is turning into Melrose Place.

    • Hank: Pass me some more of that cookie dough. I never knew you could eat it raw. It's almost as good as ice cream.
      Luanne: You know, they make ice cream with cookie dough already in it.
      Hank: Damn, sister, get me my keys!
      (later, both are laughing)
      Peggy: Luanne, where have you been? We were supposed to be crying all night.

    • Hank: She's with a football player now, and they know how to treat a woman!

    • Hank: Look at my friend Bill. He went through the worse divorce this county has ever seen, but you don't see him crying. (Cut to a scene where we see Bill closing his blinds and we can hear him crying)

    • Boomhauer: mumble-mumble Luanne'll go dutch mumble-mumble
      Attractive Lady: wanna dance?
      Boomhauer: Dang ole' CK1, just like catnip

    • Hank: (to Peggy about Luanne) I did what you couldn't. I'm not saying you're not good at what you do. I'm just saying I'm better at it than you are. I went in there and fixed her like a carburetor, and it was fun, like fixing a carburetor.

    • Luanne: (while exercising) You can't predict this tape, I've done it enough to know.

    • Luanne: Another thing I hate about Buckley, is he always takes me to all-you-can-eat and says I have to sneak off his plate, so I just get iced tea, but then he's too scared of getting caught to share.
      Hank: I hate that!

    • (Bobby is following Luanne's exercise video)
      Hank: Bobby! Stop dancing, now.
      Luanne: He's not just dancing, Uncle Hank. He's firming his thighs and tightening his buttocks.
      Hank: Watch your mouth!

    • Dale: It's a scientific fact that women like men with round, muscular butts.
