Episode Summary


Worried about how Dale is raising Joseph, John Redcorn asks Hank to take the boy he fathered on a vision quest. It's Dale who winds up having a vision, and it leads him to decide that he's really an Indian. After Joseph has a dream, Dale misinterprets it and tells Joseph it means he has to kill a panda.


Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Not Much to See Here

    This has some funny moments, and the plot itself isn't actually that bad. Unfortunately the same can't be said about the episode as a whole. I actually found myself quite bored during this episode which is rare for KOTH. There are episodes that are not very funny, but at least entertaining, but this was pretty boring despite having some really funny moments. Even Dale, who is usually the best in a bad episode, didn't do much to save this episode. After a couple of really good episode this one is a big disappointment.moreless

  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • (The guys are out in the alley like usual; Dale is wearing a vest and Native American Headdress and is dancing around stereotypically)
      Bill: Well, I'm just gonna come right out and say it, Dale. Something seems different about you.
      Dale: Something is different, Bill. I had a vision. I'm an Indian now.
      Bill: Oh.
      Dale: I always wondered why I hated the federal government and loved tobacco with such passions but now it all makes sense.
      Hank: Okay, time-out, Sitting Jackass. Have you looked in a mirror lately? You are the got-dang whitest person I've ever seen.
      Dale: I am the albino buffalo! Deal with it.

    • Hank: Maybe Redcorn was right. Joseph's falling in with the wrong crowd, and every group of bad kids needs a heavy boy to be the lookout.
      Peggy: And Bobby is so impressionable. I hope he has the strength to stand up to him. (entering the kitchen)
      Bobby: Mom, Dad, I just saw the most incredible fabric softener ad!!!! Is the supermarket still open?
      Hank: Peggy, keep him here.

    • Joseph: Isn't killing pandas a crime?
      Dale: Absolutely, for a white man. But we're Indians. We can kill just about anything as long as we use all the parts.

    • Dooley: I can see your dad's junk.

    • Hank: Okay, time out, Sitting Jackass. Have you looked in the mirror lately? You are the got-dang whitest person I've ever seen in my life!
      Dale: I am the Albino Buffalo. Deal with it.

    • Dale: I always wondered why I hated the federal government and loved tobacco with such passion. But now it all makes sense.

    • Joseph: You want to know what the land's telling me? Wreck stuff!

    • John Redcorn: Hey, what a coinkydink! All of us camping here. Funny.
      Dale: Ha!... oh, you mean funny-weird. That is odd.

    • John Redcorn: Hank, this is an important ritual among my people. Don't half-ass it.

    • Hank: Dale, I don't normally go in for that "it takes a village" garbage, but you've got a situation with your Joseph I can't have spilling over onto my Bobby.
      Dale: I know, Hank, but what can I do?
      Hank: You can tell Joseph he's not to hang around those kids anymore!
      Dale: I can't do that! This is his chance to be cool - and you only get one chance!

    • Bill: You know who'd be a good influence? My son, Trey.
      Hank: Last week it was Travis.
      Bill: So?

    • (Hank and John Recorn are talking about a Vision Quest for Joseph)
      John Redcorn: All cultures have a similar rite of passage - your people have a Bar Mitzvah.
      Hank: We're not Jewish.
      John Redcorn: Really.
