Episode Summary


Luanne, drops out of college to do hair again, much to the disappointment of Peggy. She lands a job at the hippest hair salon in Arlen, "Hottyz". Not able to afford it all herself she brings Bill aboard. But to land the coveted spots, they make some major changes. Changes that don't sit too well with their friends and families, or themselves after awhile.


Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Hot Stuff!

    This is a pretty decent episode which has a good plot (a rare (of late) Luanne centred one) and also has a lot of laughs in it. I thought Bill did a fantastic gay person (or at least the over stereotyped version). It was also nice seeing Hank supportive of Luanne, which is also very rare. It wasn't the best episode, but it was pretty good, especially compared to others this and later season(s).moreless
  • One of my favorite episodes.

    This was one of my favorite episodes of King of the Hill. I thought the writing was good and the comedy was great. Bill was the funniest in this episode and he teamed with one of the dumbest individuals in Luanne. I laughed when they joined this salon and Bill acted gay just to fit in. He needed the money and I guess seeing all those women helped. Can you blame him? My favorite parts was when Rico accused Bill of taking his snack. That was great! Bill would steal food, well maybe not but he likes food. It was funny. Thnak you.moreless
  • Bill and Luanne manage to snare primo jobs as Hottyz hair cutters! What *won't* they do to make a success of this gig?

    This is one of my very favorite King of the Hill episodes. The situation of Luanne discerning that college, despite Peggy's unremitting insistence, is simply *not* for her is classic. Finding an ideal spot for Bill to show off his real talent: Priceless. I found myself charmed by the duo's efforts to find success in the real world—they show they've got real creativity and quite a bit of ambition, to boot! Bill's turn as 'Bido', the kerchiefed gay hairdresser is worth the price of admission! ("You sizzle, with a capital "S" izzle! and his weeping man scorned act when Hank comes by the salon: oh, baby!) And I snorted soda through my nose when poor Luanne wailed, "I cannot fail out of the real world. There are no more worlds for me to go to!"

    This one always makes me smile!moreless
  • Gays in Texas would not approve. More reason why I like it.

    This is a steller eposide. It is increadibly wrong on many standpoints, but the quote made by Dale when seeing Bill, dressed as a gay man is quite priceless. Luann gets to see the real world for once and I love how this sweet Christain girls tries to pull of sexy. She is sexy in her cute Christian way. Bill is very funny in this eposide because he makes a very great straight gay man. He is the worst excuse of metro fashion but you have to admire him a bit. This eposide is beyond a favorite. Wacth it and you will see the brillance.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Peggy invites Luanne to move back in with the Hills at the end of this episode.

    • Tagline: "Pirate? Waiter? Pirate waiter?" -Dale

    • Boomhauer does not have any lines in this episode.

    • Luanne looks across the street to see Bill throwing stuff in his garbage, however she lives next door to him!

    • Hank is going to Jack the barber for haircuts, but the last time we saw Jack (in "Hank's Bad Hair Day") he went senile and Hank stopped going to him, choosing instead to get his haircuts from Bill.

    • It's said repeatedly that Luanne flunked out of beauty school, but she didn't; in "Wings of the Dope" she dropped out of beauty school without taking her big cosmetology test, because Buckley's Angel told her that she was meant for something else.

    • Bill says he's "moonlighting" at the salon but he's clearly working in the daytime. Not only is this line a goof, but it also means he isn't working at his regular Army job.

  • QUOTES (8)

  • NOTES (1)


    • The episode title is a reference to the musical My Fair Lady, which was based on a play by George Bernard Shaw. It was later made into a movie starring Audrey Hepburn.

    • History Professor: John Adams may not have had Morticia and Thing, but his economic policies were just as scary.

      A joking reference to the TV show and movie "The Addams Family." Morticia Addams was a deathly pale woman in a long black dress and Thing was a very active disembodied hand.
