  • PANE-fully funny

    8.5
    This is a really good episode. Not only is it pretty funny and has a decent plot, it also has Hank and Bobby bond which happens sometimes but not often on the show. The scene at the end when Hank is the only one laughing is very touching. Dale of course was hilarious "The Big D, Rusty I also like the diaper part, and how awkward Hank is. Overall a really good episodes, one of my favourites from this season.moreless
  • Bobby entertains a crowd with propane-related jokes.

    8.5
    Bobby helps Strickland Propane by making people laugh with propane jokes. It is nice to see Bobby and Hank finally working together. Bobby learns about propane and Hank learns about comedy. It had a nice ending and a good story. This is a great episode. The jokes' in the Propanics show are pretty bad. But the jokes' of the actual show are still pretty good. It was also nice to hear Hank laugh for once and just laugh but cracking up. Even though the jokes he laughs at are pretty bad. This is not one of my favorite episodes but still great.moreless

    • Charlie Fortner: Go on Hank, laugh ... a man in a diaper, and that's not enough, I have to buy them with my own money!
      Hank: Sir, if it makes you feel better, I too wear ... (Hesitates) protection.
      Charlie Fortner: Oh, really? What brand is the most absorbent?
      Hank: Uhhh ...

    • Hank: Sorry, Dale, you've got to work at Strickland to be in the group. Except for Luanne, she's in or Buck won't pay for T-shirts.

    • Charlie Fortner: Tell you what, you just keep doing your little propane comedy show, you just have fun with it, and I will see that you never work in this business again. You'll be back hawking dungarees at Jeans West before you can say "Oo-la-la Sassoon!"

    • Dale: Gas cop, gas cop, whatcha gonna do, Whatcha gonna do when he comes for you?

    • Bobby: (playing a propane salesman) I only sell C-3-H8. That smells like C-H4.
      Joe Jack: (dressed as a big baby) I need a new diaper. Baby did a bad, bad thing.

    • Bobby mentions Tony Randall and his wife doing the New York Crossword. Tony Randall was an actor from New York and his wife at the time was Heather Harlan.

    • Joe Jack: I've never met a president before, well I have met Patrick Swazye, but that doesn't count.


      Joe Jack is referring to the movie Point Break, where his character wears masks of presidents to rob banks.

    • Bobby mentions that Gleason had six bus uniforms. He is referring to Jackie Gleason who played a bus driver on "The Honeymooners".

    • There are a number of songs parodied in this episode.
      The theme song for the Propaniacs is a parody of "She's a Maniac" by Hall and Oats 
      The Gas Cop theme song is a parody of "Bad Boys" by Bob Marly. The original song is used as the theme for the show Cops, hence the reference.
      When Bobby sings You must buy, you must buy, you must buy, propane he is singing this to the tune of "Cocaine" by Eric Clapton.
