Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Masterful!

    This is a much much better episode than the previous one. Although only a couple in the whole series are worse. I thought both plots were interesting, and funny. I actually would have loved to have the B Plot as its own episode and have a B Plot to it, as it didn't get enough screen time despite being a much more interesting and funny plot line. The A Plot was good, and was funny, but it was also a tad weird. I don't think Hank would really act like that. Sure they promised Bobby and they did forget him, but he is 13, and was being a bit of a baby. I would generally think Hank would try and man him up. Outside of that though the episode was entertaining. However, the high mark in the rating mostly is because of how incredible the B Plot was. A Plot alone is more like a 7.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Bobby: It's awful, Joseph. My only moment of privacy today was in the bathroom-- and even then, my mom sat outside the door and sang to me.
      Joseph: Dude, that's pretty weird. Unless... What song was it?

    • Dale: Hank, you wouldn't last one day in the wild. Any skilled outdoorsman knows the female of a species is always the most fierce and calculating. That's why you never fight a lady monkey.

    • Kahn: Hey, Hank Hill! I knew rednecks abandoned cars and refrigerators. Guess we can throw kids on the list, too.
      Hank: Ah, dang it! Peggy told Minh, didn't she? She's gonna sell me out to the entire neighborhood.

    • Peggy: I can't believe it. I-I don't leave my sunglasses in the car overnight, but I leave my boy in a parking lot? If he takes a hammer to our heads while we sleep, I would not blame him.

    • Hank: Are you kicking me on purpose?
      Peggy: Hank, I am not kicking you, I am playing footsie.
      Hank: Oh, right. (nervous laughter) Well,'re it!

    • Dale: I will live the next 7 days without modern conveniences and live off the land. I'll even eschew date night.
      Hank: Date night?
      Dale: Every Friday night, Nancy and I go out on the town and we don't go home until Nancy runs out of money.

    • Bobby: (on the phone with Hank) I'm at the Get In, Get Out. I hope you're happy. I'm watching prostitutes buy pantyhose!

    • Joseph: (looking at a mannequin) I don't care if she doesn't have a head. That chick is hot!

    • Joseph: My dad and I never do things together. He says it's safer if we spread out.

    • Hank: (asking Peggy on a date) Come on, we could make this a regular thing, like cleaning the gutters or re-grouting.
