  • Hank finds out he has been cheated by his "car guy" for the last two decades, and Arlen thinks he has taken revenge by blowing up the car lot.

    One of my favorite episodes of the 12th season (thought not quite as great as "Untitled Blake McCormick Project"), this episode has a funny storyline that veers a little out of character for Hank. Despite not being a typical King of the Hill episode, it had some great one-liners - one of my favorite lines this season is Boomhauer's line about what he would say when the cops came to ask about Hank - "Talkin' bout, Hank was always a quiet guy...". It was also a nice turn of character for Peggy to be the one that is right in their marriage - she does the research so she can get her coveted convertible while Hank just walks in and pays sticker price. The best part of this episode was the kids that blow up the car lot, and all the energy they put into it - coming up wth nicknames, sneaking around in all black...

    One of the only things that detracts from this episode is the continuity mistakes - in a previous episode Hank buys a track not only from a different salesman, but also tells Bobby to "pretend not to like it" when they get in front of the car salesman, proving he knows how to bargain when buying a new car. However, the episode is still funny and definitely worth watching multiple times.
