    I am not sure why this episode has such poor reviews, as I thought this was actually a really great episode. It's one of my favourite from this season. How can you not think "I thank God everyday I didn't get exploded" is not the funniest thing ever? Is it the best ever? No. Is it even a classic? No. But it is very funny, and one of the few episodes where I strongly agree with Peggy and her actions. It also shows how important Americans think sports are. It could be part of the reason people don't like the episode, but I see the truth behind the humour. But even outside of that, it really was a fun and really funny episode.moreless

    peggy gets in hot water when she flunks the star football player. but soon hank agrees with her decision that he deserved to fail. what will everyone else think, will they agree with the decision or will they disagree and let the football player play anyway?



    it was alright, peggy is my least favorite character, to me she is annoying and not really funny at all, save for a couple lines every now and then, but the overall episode was kind of average and not really that funny i did not think, so my grade for this- a low "C"moreless

    Okay, I'll be honest and say that this episode really wasn't a very good episode at all. In fact, I'll go as far as to say that it was one of the more boring episodes. I just can't stand Peggy. She is one of the most annoying characters on the show. The writin was average, the comedy was okay, and the plot was just borderline okay. I did like the part where Peggy gets fooled by the football player's mom. That was really entertaining to see Peggy yet again get fooled. Overall, it wasn't a bad episode, just really boring. Thank you.moreless

    I WAS!! a big fan of king of the hill till I saw the episode Peggy makes the big league. In this episode they say David Kaliiki-alill is LD but when Hank and Peggy leave the room David mom says \\\\\\\"And the oscker go\\\\\\\'s to\\\\\\\" and then the son comes into the room and asked what is going on and they tell him that they said that they Hank and Peggy he was LD and David said I am not STUPIT. Then latter in the Episode David come into the Teacher lounge and Peggy said, \\\\\\\" The pep rally is in the gym o god did you make a poop\\\\\\\" I am insalted. I suffer for LD and I am not stupid I just have a harder time lerring and I have an I.Q. of 120 so LD dose not mean you are stupid.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Tagline: "I don't know what you're waiting for." -Peggy

    • During the booster club meeting at the beginning of the episode, there is some guy with a moustache sitting at the end of the table. After they finish the video of the football, there is a different looking guy sitting there.

    • On Peggy's first day of teaching she is called over to the lunch table of some of the other teachers. Other than the woman she first talks to, most of the people at the table keep changing. The first shot is a wide shot of the group of people at the table with the second shot a close up shot of them. Firstly the guy across from her at the table is wearing a green shirt. When she sits down its now a white shirt. The other mistakes is with two of the other people. At the end of the table there is a black guy and the lady in the middle is wearing a dark jacket with black hair. When Peggy sits down the black guy is now white and the woman in the middle is now very old with glasses, white hair and a light purple top.

    • When Peggy writes on the board in her algebra class she writes a2+b2=c2, around the middle of the board. Whilst talking to David the writing moves to near the top left of the board.

    • The man and woman who sit at Peggy's table on her side, on her first day, look a lot like the man and woman who were at the Thanksgiving party in the previous episode, only the man doesn't wear glasses here.

    • When Peggy takes her name tag off at the end of the episode there was nothing behind it, however when she first put it on, she just slid it in front of the other teacher's name. She had been there 8 weeks, so its possible that she went and removed it, but it's not likely.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Hank: (regarding David) I gave him an A on his essay.
      Peggy: (sarcastically) Well that's wonderful. You take that A, and you take my F, it averages out to a passing C (sniffles) Everybody wins!
      Hank: Uh... actually, the principal threw out your grade, so now David's on the Honor Roll. (laughs nervously)

    • Peggy: Hank Hill, I am speechless. I literally have nothing to say. Not one word. Nada. Zilch. Zero. (pauses) I don't know what you're waiting for.

    • Peggy: I have diagnosed myself as having the early stages of single-digit carpal tunnel syndrome, or as I call it, "chalk finger."

    • Hank: (Reading David's school paper) "What I Love Most About Propane," by David Kalaiki-Alii. Strickland Propene does not have a vending machine. It smells, and I thank God every day when I get home that I didn't get exploded. The end."

    • Peggy: I wanted so much to be like Welcome Back Kotter. Now, I'm like the real Gabe Kaplan, I am a loser.
