  • Testosterone and Bulls.

    7.5
    This was a pretty good episode, with a strange plot. It was pretty odd, but it did have some really funny moments. It was odd to see Hank act that way. I know he has a lot more energy, but would his entire personality change? I am not so sure. I have a feeling that was done as a plot point. Either way, it was weird, but still made for some good moments. Overall it was a decent episode.moreless

    This episode start with Hank Hill Finding out that Bobby is failing PE class. So he asks Bobby why he is failing and he says the class is just too hard for him then Hank says that PE isn’t hard all you have to do in PE is try to do something. So then Bobby admits the reason he is failing is that he won’t take a shower with the other guys in PE. Then Hank explains the to the guys about the situation and Dale says he should get him some Testasterome. Cause he got his son Joseph some and he has been full of energy so he asked his Joseph if he wants to wrestle to give an prove that it works and Dale starts screaming after Joseph tackles him and Hank decided that he should go to a doctor and see if Bobby can take Testasterome. When he went to the doctor he expain to Hank that testasterome is only suposed to Make his hormones react to it not make him take a shower with other guys. Then later on in the conversation Peggy realized that Hank would need to take testasterome. Then Hank refused and walked out of the office. Then the doctor wrote a subscription for the medition and threw it in the trash so then he turned his back on purpose so that peggy would go and get the pills to give to hank then she secrety started giving him the pills in his coffee and in his stake and food. So since he felt so good he started doing allot better with his work and he had so much energy that he signed up for the bull run to get people to sponsor him so that the runners wouldn’t have to have a fince between them and the bulls as they ran the course. So he made a promise to the sponsors of the bull run that he would do it. Then the next day Peggy went to the doctor cause he ran out of testrasterome and he was mad that she was secretly was giving him the pills. He said she should try and get them to take them but she shouldn’t drug him without him knowing. So he said he won’t give her any more pills but she should get him to put a Scrota-bond path on so he can get off the drugs without having side effect and not get to weak. Then while he is getting ready for the bul run she says that he should put the patch on for the run so he doesn’t get killed. Then he refuses. So they show the next day at the race when he is ready to run and Peggy comes running up on the sidelines a announces it to everyone that he should be wearing the patch. Then he yells back at her to put it away and he won’t wear it. Then as he is yelling the guy drops the cage and the bull run starts. As he is running Bobby says this is the bravest thing he has ever seen in his life. I was suprised that the writers would even have him run in the bull run cause in real life he would had deffinately died. I have seen bull runs before and the only people that don’t get hurt are the one that can run 40-50 MPH So hank would have been dead by the end of it but what ever it’s TV.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Hank: Let's go, Bobby. We're done with this jackass festival.

    • Hank: Between the drugging and the lying, someone in this family has got to show a little got-dang integrity.

    • Peggy: There's a PMS for men?

    • Dale: So it turns out I'm not the actual Dale Gribble, but a clone of him. The original Dale Gribble is a super-warrior from the year 2087. The second me, i.e. I, was created to help the first me fight the invading Mongol armies.
      Hank: Dale, that's asinine, and here's four reasons why. First, you're not gonna clone a super-warrior out of a guy who can't even win a thumb-wrestling match. Two, you've spent your life swearing that the robots will eliminate the clones by the year 2010, so which is it, robots or clones? Three, you've already said you sympathize with the invading Mongolians of 2087, so you'd be the last one they'd send to fight them. And four, if you were from the future, you would have seen this coming. (Punches Dale in the arm)

    • Hank: The boy's got no fight in him. I don't get it. He spends five hours a day playing violent video games -- what's the point if they don't have any effect on him?

    • Bill: I always wanted to run with the bulls. Sometimes, when I'm being chased by dogs, I pretend they're bulls.
      Dale: Geez, Bill, why run with the bulls? With your weight and cholesterol count, if you want to hasten death, just jump up and down a couple of times.
      Bill: No, I want the bulls to do it.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Title: The Incredible Hank
      The title and even some of the plot (in a small way) is an obvious parody of the comic (and tv show and movie) The Incredible Hulk.
