    Another amazing Season 3 episode. Bobby and Luanne get into a prank war which in itself is funny, but also leads to them "getting married" which is even funnier. Matthew McConaughey does a great job as Rad in this episode, even though he is only in the first part. I love the scene with Kahn. The fact that he bet they would get married is hilarious! There are just too many good scenes to mention them all, and too many funny lines. One of the best of the series in my opinion!moreless
  • Funny stuff in this one.

    This was a really funny episode of King of the Hill. I found the war between Luanne and Bobby to be very entertaining. It was fun to see them go back and forth by pranking each other. I was really pleased that I got to see the entire episode. My favorite parts had to be the war. It was really good and took up time. It stole the show, but I think what really made the show good was the trick Hank and Peggy played on them. The looks on their face was absolutely hilarious! It didn't stop the fun though. Thank you.moreless

    This is a solid, funny episode with some great wit and an intresting storyline. The character Rad is great and ios the star of the show, but the second half of the episode is about Luanne and Bobby and it is a really sweet story. It has some very funny moments such as when the two are exchanging pranks 'you messed with his fruit pie, after that he had nothing left to loose'. I don't really think this is an all time classic but it is a really strong season 3 episode and you will enjoy it, esspecialy Bobby and Luanne fnas.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • As Bobby visits Connie and is at her window he lays his hands on the window sill. The next shot they are back by his side and they keep alternating back and forth even though he never moves them between shots. At the end of the scene Connie shuts the window smoothly even though his fingers were still there in the shot before.

    • As Luanne is putting the dirt into Bobby's fruit pie you can see she rips open a large part of the packet. Yet in the next scene when Bobby is about to eat the pie there is no sign of where Luanne ripped the packet. Its likely this was deliberate as the joke in the scene was Bobby and Luanne's constant attempts to get back at each other, if they had left the large hole its likely Bobby would have not fallen for Luanne's prank.

    • During the scene where Peggy and Hank are enjoying a spa, Hank fills up the champagne glasses with beer. He stops pouring a bit before the top of the glasses and there is very little foam on the top. In the very next shot both their glasses have foam overflowing from it.

    • Tagline: "I don't think I'm ready for this yet!" -Bobby

    • During Rad Thibodeaux's haircut, there is a shot that shows the both of them in the mirror but the objects on the counter in front of Rad have no reflection.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Bobby: Mom, I don't want to do this. Peggy: Well of course you don't. Bill: Bobby, do you take this girl to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold until death do you part? Bobby: (Moans) Hank: That sounds like a 'yes' to me.

    • Bobby: Luanne, I know we've had our differences but I was kinda hoping we could make up and not get married.
      Luanne: Uncle Hank! Bobby's trying to get out of marrying me!
      Hank: Bobby, you cut that out.

    • Hank:You can make up for this by marrying Luanne.
      Bobby: But I'm only 12 years old.
      Hank: Well just think, you can be married for 80 years.
      Bobby: Dad, you can't make me marry Luanne.
      Hank: Yes I can. You're only 12 years old.

    • Khan: Minh! Bobby Hillbilly is marrying hillbilly cousin! You owe me five dollars!! Ha Ha In your face!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • This is the first of many episodes that we see a Bart Simpson doll on the top shelf of Bobby's bookshelf. Bart Simpson is a main character on fellow Fox show "The Simpsons".

    • Luanne: (after telling Bobby he is a hanger-oner) Like A.J.!


      Luanne is referring to A.J. McLean from the Backstreet Boys.

    • The episode title and a twelve year old Bobby Hill marrying may allude to a vintage musical short called "The Wedding of Jack and Jill" with Judy Garland before she took that stage name. Only still photos survive from the film but they feature a young boy looking a bit like Bobby Hill in this episode when he's trussed up in a suit for the wedding to his allegedly pregnant Luanne. One of the old (English) interpretations of the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill actually involves a pregnant woman (Jill) whose lover (Jack) dies in a fall before they can wed as a cautionary tale.
