  • Kahndo Craziness

    An amazing episode with some of the funniest moments in KOTH history. I love the part where everyone thinks they are the reason the police have come to get them and are flushing things down the toilet, as well as Dale running away when they could have easily made it across the boarder. Everyone in this episode was hilarious and the overall plot was really funny too. Another classic KOTH!

    I thought that this was both a funny and an educational episode. It was fun to watch all the different situations Hank and Kahn found themself in. Me and my freind Fredik laughed so hard that we had to call an amulanse. It was fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun fun. I also learned about how hard it is to get in to the USA illegal. I think that Hank and Kahn got some sympathie for the immigrants from Mexico after they went through this. This is 103 words.

    Peace out:)

  • the Hill family and the Kahn family goes to Mexico and gets thrown into a strange adventure including a sniff of the mexican culture and a little hint of what it's like being an immigrant.moreless

    this was my first episode of King of the Hill, and I found that it was quite simular to the concept of Family Guy. this is a type of series that I find hillarious, and I enjoied it very much. I feel that King of the Hill, like some other tv-series helps take away the ignorance when it comes to racism and "different" kinds of people by sort of making fun of them in a nice way. so that we laugh with them, and not of them.

    I recommend King of the Hill to everyone who want and needs a laugh, and who understands "dirty" humor.

  • Three Days of the Kahndo takes the Hill family to Mexico along with their beloved neighbors: The Souphanousinphones.

    Three Days of the Kahndo puts the two families together for a weekend in a Mexican rental condominium. Things get a little close for comfort and in a remarkable chain of events, Hank, Dale and Kahn end up alone and stranded on the wrong side of the border. In a subplot, Bobby and Connie purchase the biggest firecracker ever made for retail sale!


    Hank and Kahn don't always get along but this situation calls for a meeting of the minds. No one knows this yet but Kahn is the reason for every bad turn of events this entire weekend for the guys. Oddly, Dale randomly shows up on the doorstep of Hank's rental condominium and it doesn't really look like a coincidence that he's also in Mexico. The action really picks up when the authorities get involved with this wiley bunch and the guys may get tangled up in the Mexican justice system. Tune in for a very telling episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Tagline: "Vaya con Dios." -Monsignor Martinez. This is the first time that a tagline is not unique to this episode but rather a line that is repeated throughout the series.

    • The officer asks Hank to pull over the car, however Peggy was driving. Even though Khan was talking about Hank to the officer, he should have still asked the driver to pull over, not the passenger.

    • When driving to Mexico, in the wide shots, it is clear that no one in the car has facial features (eyes, nose, etc.)

    • The opening credits have a Mexican style to them in the first guitar notes.

    • When the police came to the condo and everyone begins to panic, Dale leaves through the bathroom window. The strange thing is that the Hills are in the top floor of the condo, and yet Dale walks off as if he is on the bottom floor. Also, when Hank tells the police "We have nothing to hide", Dale can be seen falling from upstairs. But there is no room above the Hills.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (Hank, Dale and Kahn prepare to cross the Mexican border back into America)
      Kahn: Do you see how easy it is to get into this country? I can't believe I had to learn the Bill of Rights. When am I gonna use that?
      Dale: You'd be surprised, Kahn. I take the fifth on a daily basis.

    • (Hank explains to Bobby about the fence at the Mexican border to keep out illegal immigrants)
      Bobby: Did Kahn come over the fence, Dad?
      Hank: No, he applied the legal way. Sometimes the system fails.

    • Hank:(To the police men) We have nothing to hide.(We see Dale jumping out of the window)

    • Kahn: (after getting a lime in his beer) Hey, this is a beer, not a fruit salad!

  • NOTES (4)

    • It is unkown if the Hotel manager got the money the judge ordered Hank to pay or if some thing else was worked out.

    • Speeding up while another car attempts to pass on the left, like Peggy does on her way to Mexico, is against Texas law.

    • In the DVD commentary, "Bill" (Stephen Root) takes a shot at Johnny Hardwick for a poorly written line that was said in the episode.

    • The songs that Kahn sings in the episode are: Mickey by Toni Basil), Blinded me with Science by Thomas Dolby, and What I like About You by The Romantics.


    • Lucky Pierre: This refers to the middle person in a gay three way, referencing that they both "give" and "receive".

    • (Dale is in court after being arrested for breaking into the condo)
      Dale: If his key fit, you must acquit.

      During the infamous murder trial of O.J. Simpson, Simpson tried on the gloves that he was alleged to have worn during the murders and they didn't fit him. During the closing arguments, his lawyer Johnnie Cochrane referred to the gloves and said, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit."

    • The title is an allusion to the 1975 spy movie Three Days of the Condor.
