"King of the Hill" Quote of the Day

Monday, December 27th, 2004

Sorry we’ve missed a couple. In contrition, here’s two from the episode where Hank’s mom brings her Jewish boyfriend to Christmas at the Hills.

Dale: “So he’s Jewish.”

Hank: “Yeah, Dale, he’s Jewish.”

Dale: “There’s nothing wrong with that in and of itself.”

Bill: “Is he funny?”

Hank: “He doesn’t seem too funny.”

Bill: “Seinfeld’s funny.”

Hank: “Seinfeld’s funnier than Garry.”

Dale: “I’ll bet Garry — Kasner, is it? — I’ll bet he’s funnier than Cotton.”

Boomhauer: “Cotton ain’t no funny at all, man… Dang ol’ POW camp… bamboo shoots… talkin’ ’bout puttin’ ‘em under his dang fingernails… freak me out about that.”

Hank: “I thought my mom had learned her lesson when she had the good sense to dump my dad. But now she’s found another guy to treat her like a bellboy.”

Bill: “Whoopi Goldberg’s funny.”

Bill: “Garry doesn’t eat steak ’cause the cow is sacred to his people.”

Dale: “Nope, you’re thinking of the Hindus. The pig is sacred to the Jews.”

Bill: “I wouldn’t, myself, never join a religion that restricted my diet. I wouldn’t want to get into heaven that way.”

No comment on whether I use a lot of Bill punchlines in this series because I identify with him to a degree, as has been alleged by some. Regardless, have a happy cold weather season, no matter what animals you don’t eat.

Bobby: “This room holds a lot of memories for me. Like that time I dressed up Ladybird in my underpants and we pretended we were Calvin Klein models.”

I’m in favor of reasonable gun control, but I don’t think I would extend it knives. Yet it looks like that’s what they’re doing in Britain. Fearful of a “knife culture,” there are now calls for searches and tougher laws. Thank goodness for neutrality, or the British would be at the mercy of the Swiss Army.

UPDATE: Thanks for all the interesting comments to what started as a throw-away post. If you’re really a knife enthusiast, or more to the point, if someone on your gift list is one, be sure to check out the Christmas Stocking Full of Knives!!

Hank: “If Boomhauer wins his amateur race, he gets to drive the pace car on the same track as Dale Earnhart. Or, as you’d see it…Jeff Gordon. Ugh.”

Bobby: “Wow! Jeff Gordon drives race cars too?! I thought he was just a cereal box model.”
