  • Cotton Lives

    8.0
    I don't know if it's because seeing Hank doing all those tasks made me relive the days of Cotton, without Cotton really being there, or if this actually is a good episode, but either way, I really enjoyed this one. Yes, it could have been funnier, but it was highly entertaining, and I really loved the scene with the guys in the bathroom. It was the right mix of humour, sweetness and typical Hank expressing feelings awkwardly. The B Plot was pretty funny, especially since it starts off with Dale leaving a beer can on Bill's lawn, which is surprisingly clean in this episode. Overall it was a really nice episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Tagline: "I killed fifty men!" -Cotton

    • Hank is shown born in a hospital ward, with Cotton flirting with a nurse. In the episode "Yankee Hankee", Tillie explains to Hank that she had no time to get to the hospital and consequently gave birth to Hank in the Women's bathroom at Yankee Stadium; additionally, Cotton was escaping capture after a failed assassination attempt on Castro.


       

    • In the episode "Cotton's Plot", Cotton was given a plot to be buried in. In this episode he was cremated and flushed down a toilet. If this was tradition amongst his friends, it seems odd he spent that whole previous episode fighting to get a plot.


       

    • They say that Cotton died a year ago, however, no one has aged (most notable is Bobby).

    • After Hank takes the note off of the box, the tape that was used to hold it on suddenly disappears.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Hank: Hello. I'm Hank Hill. Clogged toilets are a serious issue that affects everyone. I'd like to take a moment to give you a few pointers on proper toilet usage so what happened in this episode won't ever happen to you. First off, items like cotton swabs, chewing gum, cigarettes, and, uh...lady things should not be flushed. The basic rule is, never flush anything down a toilet that doesn't come directly,...uh, from you. For tougher clogs, purchase a snake at a local hardware store, or consult your local yellow pages for a certified plumber in your area. If it's a father and son company, request the father. Finally, I want you to know that no pipes were actually damaged in the making of this episode. Thank you.

    • Bobby: You know, Dad, you never answered my questions about you.
      Hank: Well, you're right, Bobby. What do you want to know? I'll tell you anything.
      Bobby: How do you like your hamburgers cooked?
      Hank: Medium rare. Three flips.
      Bobby: Okay. What was it like the first time you slept in a bed with Mom? How'd you choose which side of the bed you'd sleep on? And did you start cuddling right away, or did you build up to it?
      Hank: Well, uh, okay. Uh, let's start with the bed question. Uh, I sleep on the north side. As for the cuddling, uh... (clears throat) Uh, Peggy, could you get me some water?

    • Peggy: I guess we just have to accept the fact that even dead, Cotton will always find a way to disrupt our lives.

    • Hank: Uh, you know, I-I guess I did learn something about Cotton this week. Sure, he killed 50 men, but he didn't do it alone. There were all kinds of Stinkies and Fatties to help him. Those guys meant a lot to Cotton, just like you guys, uh, mean a lot to me. It's a shame we never got to experience the horrors of war together, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy our, uh, time together.

    • Bill: I don't know, Hank. General Patton's toilet would definitely be in my top three places where I'd like to get flushed. Right behind the one Elvis died on and yours.
      Dale (via walkie-talkie): I want my skeleton to be dismantled and sent in a box to Singapore to be re-mantled.
      Hank: Dang it, Dale! If you're gonna participate in the discussion you have to be here in person.
      Dale: No can do. Not as long as what's-his-fat is there.
      Bill: According to our agreement I have the alley from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Kahn said it's within my legal right to pull his batteries out at any time.
      Dale: Hey!
      Hank: Relax, Bill.
      Dale: So when do you and I and not Bill leave, Hank? I've got my flushing arm ready.
      Bill: What? Why does Dale get to go flush the colonel?! I hate Dale. We all hate Dale!
      Hank: Dang it, I've had enough of this. Neither of you are going. Boomhauer, we leave tonight.
      Boomhauer: Dang ol' yo, man.

    • Hank: What an awful day. You know, I'm really starting to wonder what the point of all this is.
      Peggy: Maybe the point was for Cotton to humiliate you one last time.

    • Bobby: This thing is like a treasure map to grandpa! Can I go with you when you, 'slap the butt of some brunette nurse at the V.A.'?

    • Dale: You're dead to me Bill Dauterive!
      Bill: Good! I'd rather be dead than be your friend anyway!

    • Dale: I don't know why you're so worried about that can Bill. If it's anything like your ex-wife, It will come to it's senses and walk away.

    • Bill: The only reason I ever hung out with you was because of Boomhauer and Hank.
      Dale: Oh really? Then howcome just last week, you said I was your best friend?
      Bill: I pretended you were Hank when I said it.
