Episode Summary

EDIT

After a neighbor passes away, Hank and the guys help her son fix up the house to sell it. They are appalled when they discover Ted Wassonasong is buying the house only to tear it down and build a mansion. When a storm comes, the house, which has a poor foundation and materials, starts to come down and is going to take out Bill's, and Luanne and Lucky's house with it, unless the neighbors can do something about it. Bobby and Joseph discover the joys of being construction workers.

  • McMansion is Falling Down, Falling Down

    7.5
    This was an OK episode, which had some really funny moments, but not a ton. The plot was interesting, but parts of the episode were boring, and there should have been a more distinct B Plot, as it seems like there was not enough material for the full half hour (pun intended???) It is also disappointing since the first two were great episodes. I really liked Lucky in this episode. It's not that I usually can't stand him, but he very rarely gives a really big laugh, more just a humorous haha. But he actually was one of the best things about this episode.moreless
  • This is a great episode.

    8.5
    This episode starts with Hank, Dale, Boomhauer, and Bill fixing up a house. Ted Wassonasong buys the house and wants to build a Mansion, destroying the house. Nobody likes the mansion and they try to get the help of a man who is an expert on finding loopholes but he is of no help. Then on a dark stormy night the house starts to fall apart they either have to take it down or it will take them down. So they destroy the house. Also I love the shot of them right before they start tearing it down with all their tools in hand and their angry faces. This finally shows the how evil Ted really is. In many previous episodes he always seems like a nice guy but he also always has a hidden plan.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Tagline: "Woo wooo wooo wooo.. wee ohhh... wee ohhh!" -Lucky
      This is the second time that the tagline is Lucky imitating a guitar sound. The first was in "Redcorn Gambles With His Future".

    • During the scene where Ted hands out alcohol to the guys, there is one bottle still remaining in the box. But when Kahn stops crying and Ted leaves, there are no bottles left.

    • The house, which is the focus of this episode, is the house that Luanne rented when she initially moved out (she moved right next door to Bill, on that same side), and yet, it seems, based on the way everyone talked, that the woman who lived there had been there for a long time. Also, not only did it look nothing like it did when Luanne moved in, it seems as if the house she and Lucky now live in (which is right next to this one, two down from Bill) is the same one she was in before, as it looks identical, including the pool in the back.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (Ted has just sold the lot to the city, who has made it into a power station)
      Kahn: This is terrible! Thought I was gonna live next to a powerful man. Now I just live next to power.
      Bill: It's not all bad. At least we'll get fresh electricity.
      Lucky: I know it's ugly, but living next door to a power station means our baby will probably grow up to have super powers.
      Luanne: And that will come in handy. Lucky's always getting pinned under cars.

    • Dale: Hank is stinking up the place with all his boring facts and figures. People want damning evidence and courtroom drama. He needs to throw a briefcase like Mr. Brady. Something.
      Lucky: Now is the time the late, great, gay Perry Mason would spring a surprise witness.
      Dale: Yes, a surprise witness.

    • Bill: I miss the sun. I'm tired a lot because my body thinks it's always night.
      Luanne: Well, I like it. I feel like we fell down a hole into a fairy tale, and now we live next to a beautiful castle.
      Hank: I can't tell if the burgers are done, because there's a got-dang turret shadow across my grill.

    • Peggy: Last time I shaved my legs, this house didn't even have a second floor.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Title: Probably an allusion to the concept of the Monster Home which has different local derogatory names. Monster homes are generally quite a lot larger than the typical home in an established neighborhood and tend to ignore the customary architecture as well. Many, though not all, are built with an eye to fast profit and are of substandard quality with a very impractical layout, looking impressive from the outside but having silly features inside like small rooms with no obvious purpose.
