  • The episode: Texas Skillsaw Massacre brought the princes of Arlen together in another bizarre, twisty plot. Dale ruins Hanks domicile, then starts a chain of events ending with everyone getting angry at Hank, not him.

    Texas Skillsaw Massacre shows the very depths of Dale Gribble's stupidity and in contrast, Hank's much treasured self-control. Apparently, Dale has been tunneling from the wall of his basement (the gaping hole cleverly disguised by an enormous poster of Redd Foxx faking a heart attack) to the underside of Hank's kitchen. One fine morning, Hank is preparing breakfast and as he walks across the kitchen floor, it caves right in. This episode highlights a rare bit of selflessness on Nancy's part and Peggy's innate fear of Cotton Hill. Various antics ensue leading up to Dale getting dismembered, Hank getting assigned to an anger management class and later all four our favorite Arlinians becoming closer than ever.
