Episode Summary

EDIT

When Hank discovers that the trailer Luanne grew up in is still available, he wants Luanne to move out of the house and back into the trailer. Hank and Peggy have a fight where Peggy accuses Hank of being cold and repressed, and Hank sort of tells Peggy to go to Hell. After Peggy goes with Luanne to help her move, Hank learns that a tornado is heading for the trailer park. It's up to him to save his wife and niece, and to prove that he's not so repressed after all.

  • Not the Underwear!

    9.5
    One of the best of Season 2! This episode was hilarious. As with some of the first few of Season 1, all the characters played a good role and everyone gave laughs. The egg bit was hilarious and the part where Hank (did not) lose his underwear is a classic KOTH moment. Right from the start (6AM already that boy ain't right) til the end with the underwear this episode had me laughing. Even the way Hank "told" Peggy to go to Hell was typical Hank style. Love it, and this whole episode.moreless
  • Funny stuff.

    8.5
    I thought that Hank was really being a jerk. It was funny watching him want to move Luanne back to her trailer home. In a way, I felt bad for Luanne being forced to move back against her own will. It was actually very much a stupid and selfish choice by Hank. The episode had some good comedy, funny bits, and some decent writing. I liked the fact that it was funny and also very much well put together. My favorite moment was when Bobby tried to throw an egg in the wind and it hit him in the face. Thank you.moreless

  • Hank behaves coldly and selfishly and nearly learns his leason in the worst way when a tornado hits.

    While I constantly rip on Hank Hill for his many faults and his personality, this episode shows the side of him that allows me not to absolutely condem him.



    The fact that he was willing to risk his life for Peggy and Luanne allows me to see Hank as human (as far as a cartoon character is concerned) with some measure of redeming qualities.



    Plus, I love the part of Dale driving towards the tornado and freaking out when a drop of water hits the windshield.



    What I like the most about the older episodes of this series it that they were still funny and were worth staying past the commercial breaks.moreless

    Hank is tired of Luanne living at the house so he suggest that she move back to her trailer. Luanne does not want to go back because of the bad memories of the night when her parents killed eachother. so hank and the gang go to take her to the trailer and flip it over since it was tipped for years. later on peggy and hank get in fight over luanne staying or going so he tells peggy to go to he**. she leaves with luanne and heads tom the trailer park. meanwhile there is a bad storm brewing and according to nancy there could be tornadoes. so hank goes to save the girls and as he leaves the tornado touches down and dale and boomhauer tagalong to catch a tornado video. once they arrive at the trailer park after almost being held up by bill and the rest of the army. an old lady sees bobby peggy and luanne trying to escape with hank and suggest that they get in her storm shelter. hank is trapped up a flagpole and the tornado is destroying the trailer park and blows all of his clothes off as the storm weakens hank heads into the storm shelter. when its done luanne says she saw uncle hank was naked but both peggy and him say he still had his boxer shorts but as the episode ends we see them in a tree flapping in the breeze. a coolchris44 review. king of the kill is a great show. i lhave a crush on gloria and kelly lombardo too.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Man at Door: Hello is there a Luanne Platter living here?
      Hank: Well who wants to know?
      Man at Door: Shiny Pines Trailer Park. Miss Platter owes 6 months back rent.
      Hank: You must have that wrong mister, Luanne doesn't have any trailer, that's why she lives here.
      Man at Door: So she does live here.
      Hank: Don't play mind checkers with me man. I'm not in the mood.
      Man at Door (pulls wrench out of jacket pocket): Uh we're both reasonable people.
      Hank (grabs golf club and holds it behind door): You said it friend.
      Man at Door: My records show a trailer at the corner of Shady Oak Lane and Unpaved Access Drive: Luanne Platter - Resident.
      Hank: That can't be right. Luanne use to live in a trailer, but her parents had a fight, the trailer tipped over, her momma went to jail and the cops hauled it off.
      Man at Door: Sir, if you're calling me a liar, you better be holding something stronger than an umbrella.
      Hank (pulls club out from behind door): 9 iron.
      Man at Door: Y'all have a nice day.

    • Peggy: (Imitates Hank) I surely am not un-fond of you Peggy, I tell you what. What kind of marriage proposal is that?

    • Nancy: Mention your home was destroyed, and get a free 5lb bag of onions.

    • (Discussing what tools to use to winch the trailer)
      Bill: I could get you an Army tank from the base. There's nothing better for pushing, except maybe a bulldozer, but of course they lock those up.

    • Peg: Well they asked me to substitute for a German class, so I said "nein", which I thought meant "yes", but apparently "nein" means "no", so I blew a big opportunity.

    • Hank: Just in case I am incapacitated for any reason, do you know how to start a man's heart with a downed power line?
      Bobby: No
      Hank: Well, there's really no wrong way to do it.

    • Dale: A storm that level will blow an egg through a barn door. Through two barn doors if one of them's open.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • The Texas City Disaster of 1947 when a ship carrying ammunition and fertilizer exploded at the dockside was considered the worst industrial accident in U.S. history. The episode title may be intended to pay homage to that important event in Texas history.

    • Spike etc. on a radio: " WHOOPEE!" *Musical instruments, cowbell, and a pistol shot*
      Earlier in the episode, Peggy had told Luanne they had "better get on the road before that Dr. Demento starts stinking up the air waves." Just before one of the commercial breaks, the scene cuts from Hank to Peggy and Luanne driving, the storm about to break. The song coming from the radio is Cocktails For Two, by Spike Jones. This is, indeed, a popular staple from The Dr. Demento Show, appearing on the 20th Anniversary Collection CD's.
