  • Quotes

    • 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!
