  • A Very Food Episode!

    8.5
    This was a surprisingly good episode. Reading what it's about, you think it would be a really bad one, as the plot is kind of stupid, however it is actually a very funny episode. Bill and Dale (as usual) steal the show and make it an interesting plot. I do somewhat agree with Dale, and think it's disgusting, but it is a huge event every year. I also like that they included that skinny asians are usually the winner, because its true. I think a lot of people assume that only fat people could do this. I also like how they explained it. I think the B plot of Peggy trying to distract Bobby is funny. The scenes are fairly short, but each one is very funny on its own. Another great KOTH episode!moreless

    bill discovers how fast he can eat hotdogs and decides to be in a competition with other countries to win for the USA. he is happy with all of the fame he is getting, until he learns dale is actually a faster eater of hotdogs than he is. good episode. kind of boring in some of the parts near the end but overall a nice episode. i like when bill feels he is helping other than feeling uselss and this was a good example of that, so because of all of this my overall grade is in the high B rangemoreless
  • Fairly interesting.

    I must say that this episode had some funny moments but overall left me with an impression of it being silly. I don't really understand why Dale could eat more hotdogs than Bill. Maybe it was for a bit for the episode, but in terms of relevancy it makes no sense. I do not like how they throw away Bill's character to further another's character. But this episode was funny and had some okay writing. My favorite part was when Bill was trying to impress the woman that was watching the contest. Overall, a decent episode with plenty of food. Thank you.moreless
  • This episode is quite a nice twist on the series with Dale being the voice of reason and Hank not knowing any better.

    8.5
    This episode works well for me for three main reasons. One being at first it gives Bill a sense of dignity and pride. It really puts him in center ring for, at first, a really good thing. Plus it gets Hank really proud of him. Then there's Dale, who is actually the voice of reason for one in this episode. He's the one that explains to Bill how he's still looked on as a freak and a joke, and doesn't have the respect of the people watching him. It makes Bill realize that he shouldn't turn himself into a side show just for enjoyment. That's something I always liked about this episode. And if that's all not enough, you can't go wrong with the whole side story of Peggy trying to hard to keep Bobby from learning about competitive eating. The thing she pulls is hilarious.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Hank: You know, Bill, America doesn't need to win every dang thing to be great. We've got the Constitution, two George Bushes, great toilets -- hell, we've played golf on the moon. I guess we can let Laos have a stupid wiener contest, can't we?

    • Hank: So, things still on with Cyndi?
      Bill: No.
      Dale: Well, at least you got a little chic-a-womp-womp.
      Bill: Actually, we were saving it for tonight. My idea.

    • Dale: Behold the great American fat-ass, gorging on the lips and anuses of his brethren.

    • Bill: I think your Mustard Yellow Belt is going to look pretty good around my fat American gut.

    • Hank: Are you an eater?
      Irrawaddy: Yes, Laotian noodle champion. I'm branching out into hot dogs.
      Hank: No kidding? My neighbor's Laotian. You know a guy named Kahn?

    • Cyndi: You know, Bill, the last big American to win the Mustard Yellow Belt was Steve Kiner in '99. Since then, all the hot dog eating competitions have been won by skinny Japanese guys. But I still believe in the big man.
      Hank: Wait a minute, America isn't the hot dog champion? How could you let that happen? This whole nation is stuffing its face! Can't one of us do it at record speed?

    • Bill: I never say no to a party in McMaynerbury.

    • Sunny: You promised me a fat George Clooney. This is not a fat George Clooney!

    • Hank: You might want to find out what's causing that god-awful smell in your car.
      Bill: That was a frog. I guess I'll get rid of it.

    • Peggy: I finally got a woman to agree to go out with him.
      Hank: You're kidding! Who?
      Peggy: Sunny Edmonds, the new librarian.
      Hank: The perky one?
      Peggy: No, the one who won't make change.
      Hank: Did you try the perky one?
      Peggy: Yes I did, and it took the perk right out of her.

    • Hank: It's nice for Bill to finally have something he's good at. Might give him a reason to live and whatnot.

    • Bill: There's this movie I'm dying to see. This one's got a Culkin and a Baldwin in it!

    • Dale: Any idiot can eat hot dogs, it's not a talent.

    • Dale: Are you training him to be an athlete or a colossal fatass?

  • NOTES (1)

    • On the Cartoon Network/Adult Swim airing of this episode, Hank muttering, "Jesus!" (as he watches Bill devour the entire plate of hot dogs meant for the barbecue) was muted.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Hank: Hell, we've played golf on the moon.

      The astronaut who played golf on the moon was Alan Shepard (1923-1998), the commander of Apollo 14. The Apollo 14 mission took place in 1971; ten years earlier, Shepard became the first American to fly in space on Mercury-Atlas 3, also known as Freedom 7.

    • The title of this episode "The Fat and the Furious" is similiar to the title of the movie The Fast and the Furious.
