  • This is my favorite episode the show's ever made!

    This episode has super laughs from beginning to end. Bill's at his best in this episode, whining about Lenore being gone. He tries to kill himself in many ways, leading Hank, Dale, and Boomhauer putting him on suicide watch. They don't get authorities involved, which actually was a good thing in that case, that they handled things themselves. Bill constantly tried to kill himself, even by repeatedly banging a drawer shut with his head inside. Eventually, he ends up at some point where it looks like he's fixed. Hank is proud of him, and Bill looks like a happy man again. Then, the next day, he's wearing a dress, convincing himself that he is Lenore. He even talks in a girly voice. Also, he takes his act to a party hosted by Hank Hill. The people at the party weren't too pleased with Bill showing up in a dress, talking like a girl. At least at the end, Bill comes to his senses about moving on with life. He would later get depressed about it in later episodes, but never to this extent again.
