15 Favorite 'King of the Hill' Episodes
The one where everyone thought Dale had gone insane and was going to shoot people from the bell tower. —Joe
I've got two favorite episodes: The one where Bobby becomes a plus-size model and Hank loves Bobby anyway; and the one where Luanne discovers the Manger Babies and Peggy helps Hank realize that Luanne's happiness is more important than the Super Bowl. —reb
My all-time favorite episode is when Peggy goes to the Boggle tournament and poor Hank is torn between supporting her and going to the lawnmower expo next door. Hank attempting to motivate Peggy with one of his high school coach's speeches (''Loser! You're a loser!'') is comedy gold. —Tony
Dale's screwy plan to sue the cigarette company to get his wife the face-lift she wanted. I still love how he gives a two-sided monologue after putting himself on the stand during the trial. ''Are you a homosexual?!'' ''NOOOOO!'' —t3hdow
My all-time favorite episode was when Luanne got a ''practice head'' to prepare for a major hairstyling exam in Beauty School, and Bobby, preparing for his first boy-girl party, kept stealing the head to practice kissing on it; after Hank caught him and destroyed the head, he (out of remorse) let Luanne use his own hair for her exam. —G.R.
Favorite moment: I think the gang was out camping (maybe having to do with that Straight Arrow thing), and they come across a dead bird that had apparently been hit by a car. Before Hank can stop him, Bobby picks up the bird, which was actually only stunned. Hank, who'd spent the weekend trying to teach and reinforce traditional beliefs and values to the boy, can only look on in horror as Bobby watches the bird fly away and whispers in awe, ''I'm a shaman.'' —Mikey
Kahn is a great character, too. One of my favorite Kahn episodes is the one where Connie runs off to Branson to play with ''The Dale Gribble Bluegrass Experience.'' I love when Kahn realizes that Connie is not where she says she is: ''Wait a minute! Tim Wu hates Coca-Cola!'' —Amy
The one where Hank drives his mom and her friends to the miniature museum, and MTV Spring Break shows up! So many great moments in that one, especially with Bill trying to move in on the family since Hank abandoned them (''With four single women!''). Plus, I think Betty White did a voice cameo, which automatically makes it even greater. —Jennifer
I loved the one where Bobby went to Cotton's old military school that made that shinless man the heartless soldier he was. After realizing that the school isn't the hellhole it was, Cotton takes over, but can't seem to break Bobby. The best part is Hank's line at the end, ''Funny thing about mush, you can't build it up, but you can't break it down either.'' That line helped me to understand my brother a little bit more, and to stop being so hard on him. —Brie
Wow, there's so many great episodes and a lot of them have already been mentioned. One I haven't seen on here is when Hank's mom brings home her Jewish boyfriend and Hank finds them in the throes of passion. And he proceeds to go blind. —Jenny
My favorite was when Hank caught Bobby smoking and then tried to make him smoke a whole pack. Hank then becomes addicted to smoking again. Then when they are trying to quit we see Bobby and Hank going through withdrawal. Hysterical! —Jimmy H.
When Bill, then Boomhauer, then Dale end up in the same mental institution. Great series. —Rica
My favorite was the one where the Buddhist monks thought Bobby was the reincarnation of their Dalai Lama, and they wanted to take Bobby away with them (much to Hank's & Kahn Jr.'s horror). When Bobby's final test to prove he is the reincarnation is to pick the item that belonged to the former Dalai Lama, he sees the reflection of Kahn Jr. in a mirror amongst the items, and decides he would rather be with her than go with the monks, even if it means giving up a life where he is revered. —BillF
I like the Christmas episode where Dale is hoarding for the year 2000 millennium bug and his 2 gerbils, which were meant for breeding for meat in the post-apocalyptic world (and were also both males), got into his drums of Mountain Dew that were spilling everywhere and ruining his cigarettes that result in the famous Dale quote of: ''My DEW!'' —Anon
I have to tell you by character my favorites: Hank ? the episode w/constipation Peggy ? early season episode where she was gonna teach sex education to Bobby's class. That scene where she is practicing what to say and screams out ''vagina'' in the bathroom and Hank comes in accusing her of swearing. —BJohnson
