    7.5
    This was a pretty decent episode. Not the best plot, and not the funniest, but it is at least entertaining. It's better than some other KOTH episodes at least. The A Plot is a decent one and it's funny how all the guys are hitting on Luanne. It's a tad annoying that she doesn't do anything about it, as in the past she has always stuck up for herself when it comes to that. It's almost as if she didn't notice it at all. The B Plot was good, not really funny, but it was not boring either. Very typical Bobby. Dale also was great in this episode. Overall, a decent episode.moreless
  • Not great.

    5.5
    I didn't like this episode. I think that Buck is a moron. He really is a mindless character and also doesn't have any sort of decent manner in him. All he thinks about is cheating on his wife, drinking, gambling, swearing, and having a good time. Never have I ever liked his character. I never understood why Hank liked him so much and in this episode it was no different. It wasn't bad, but the reason I rated it so low was because of Strickland being such a loser. Overall, a disappointing episode that should have been better without Strickland. Thank you.moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Luanne: You're very nice, but you're totally old. I like young guys, who love Jesus but have fitness...and hair.

    • Hank: Did you see him? He was clean-cut, polite, he wasn't even sweating vodka.

    • Luanne: Rememberingness is next to holiness.

    • Hank: What are you doing here?
      Joseph: Bibling up, dude.

    • Peggy: Buck is drowning in a sea of his own addictions, and if there is one thing I learned at YWCA camp, it is that you cannot save a drowning man!

    • Mr. Strickland: Donna, find me that website where the elephant does his business on the man's head.

    • (Hank is in the alley with the guys talking about Buck, who gambled away Strickland North)
      Hank: I'm worried, fellas, Buck's never been this bad. And this time, I'm afraid he's gonna take the business down with him.
      Dale: You know what a real friend would do? Get me to burn down said other friend's failing business for the insurance money. Just say the word. Or don't. I'll get the signal. Just nod. Or don't.
      Hank: Shut up, Dale.
      Dale: So we're on.

    • (Buck Strickland is sobbing in his office at Strickland Propane when Hank comes in)
      Hank: Sir, I don't usually ask personal questions, but are you okay?
      Mr. Strickland: My wife kicked me out. I had Donna over at the house, and the old crow caught us in flagrante on the credenza. It's all over. She said she could handle my drinking binges, and my gambling, and even turn a blind eye to my extra-marital escapades, but not when it happened all at once, and on her birthday!
