Tagline: "Hank likes the gnome." -Bill
When Luanne and Peggy go back to the car after the estate sale, all the plants that were in the car were gone.
When Hank is holding the glue it changes to blue then back to yellow, when the shots change
Hank: I need a gnome. But not just any gnome. I need a Winklebottom.
Salesman: A Winklebottom? You might as well ask me to move a rainbow!
Hank: I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or just weird.
Hank: Come on, Peggy, it was just a garden gnome.
Peggy: Yeah, and propane is just a stupid gas!
(Hank buys a gnome named Figgleforth)
Salesman: Come back and see us any time.
Hank: Yeah, I don't think so.
Salesman: I was speaking to Figgleforth!
Dale: So, is that a ceramic gnome or did Peggy kill a real gnome and take it to a taxidermist?
Hank: Why would anyone do drugs when they could just mow a lawn?
Hank: I'm not a dork, I sell propane.
Peggy: Excuse me, do you know of a plant that can withstand over-watering, inadequate fertilization, and perhaps some overzealous pruning?
Garden Store Clerk: Yeah, they're called weeds.
Hank: Yeah, Peggy's fixin' up the front yard a bit
Dale: Gee Hank, if your wife wants to screw something up, why can't she just stick to Bobby?
Bill: (about the garden gnome) Gosh, Hank, what will people think when they see that thing out here?
Hank: God willing, they'll think Peggy's a widow.
Luanne: Ooh! An estate sale! Pull over, dead people have tons of clothes that they don't want anymore.
Hank: Well, it's just that people are starting to, you know, say nasty things about our house.
Peggy: Like what? What are they saying?
Hank: Like yesterday, I heard the Fed Ex guy call our house `the one with the gnome out front`.
Hank: I tell you what, how 'bout we repaint the kitchen? You can pick out any shade of white you want.
The song Hank is singing while watering his lawn is the theme tune to a classic TV show 'Green Acres'.
The German tourist town, "New Hoffensheim," is based on a real place on I-35, New Braunfels. In the script, the town is actually called New Braunfels, but it was changed to a fictionalized name.
Kathy Najimy and Cynthia Mann previously worked together on Veronica's Closet.
Peggy (about her drapes): I bought these the day John Lennon was shot!
That would have been December 8, 1980. Singer-songwriter, activist and former Beatles guitarist John Lennon was killed in New York City by a severely disturbed young man who had a bizarre obsession with him.
Title pun: Thar, she blows! A line from Melville's Novel Moby Dick.
