Whilst the old man in the retirement home is about to give Bobby the ventriloquist doll, there is a shot of just Bobby. In this shot you can see the jacket and hat on the coat rock and the coat is on the top rack. When we see both of them together the coat rack has another rack above the jacket now. See more...
During Hanks's conversation with Bobby when he tells him that he will have to marry Luanne, look at the shelf behind Bobby. There is a Bart Simpson doll there. A few years before this was featured the Hill family was in the crowd at one of the pee wee football games in the Simpsons episode "Bart Star". See more...

Across whole show
Question: Did Peggy always live in Montana when she was younger? There's one Valentine's episode where a flashback shows her and Hank in high school.
Answer: This has been somewhat of a topic of discussion amongst fans of the show. Along with the difference with her mother in a couple of shows, its never really been set when she left Montana and by what age as its changed at times. What seems to be at least certain is she was born and for a certain period lived in Montana.
Question: What happened to Peggy's brother (Luanne's father)? Why isn't he around?
Answer: While it is hard to recall everything with Luanne's father here is the information that is more well known. Leanne (Luanne's mother) was an alcholic and one night tried to stab her husband with a fork. The information about what happened to him after the incident is not too clear but Luanne went to stay with the Hills. In the episode "The Hank's Giving episode" when the family is going to fly to Montana the only other major information about her father is mentioned with the fact that he is in prison. However we don't meet him or see him as the family never gets to Montana and Peggy mentions to Luanne that her father had to return to jail.
Question: Boomhauer sometimes says that his family wins the lottery or says that he's on workers' compensation. Has he ever mentioned what injury/disability he has (or claims to have) for worker's compensation?
Answer: Boomhauer is on workman's comp. As for his injury that has always remained a mystery. Other than his love for cars and many woman admirers there is even little hint of what he used to do or could have been injured from.
Question: I once saw a clip that shows Luanne excitedly telling Hank, Bill, Dale, and Boomhauer about something, and she jumps up and down until her breasts (which aren't shown) come out of her shirt. Was this a deleted scene or a joke made by the show's creators?
Answer: I believe it was a joke. If I remember correctly the scene was once shown on a tv clip show that was showing goof moments from tv shows. As it is an animation it would have to be a joke.
Question: Do we know anything about Bill's parents?
Answer: Much of Bill's background was revealed in the episode "A beer can of desire". He was born to a wealthy Cajun family in Louisiana. Although most of the information about his parents is fairly unknown. Bill has from time to time mentioned that his father was abusive and I believe an alcoholic.
Question: Has there ever been any clear indication that Luanne does or doesn't know about Nancy and John Redcorn's affair?
Answer: There is nothing to specify that she did or didn't know but most of the characters bar Dale and Peggy before she found out, acknowledged it was common knowledge. As Hank pointed out to Peggy about how else do you explain Joseph.
Question: Does anyone know why the seventh season hasn't come out on DVD yet?
Answer: While no official response from Fox as for its long delay, many have speculated the reason is due to the mixed success the series has had on DVD. The second season is generally used as the example, as the DVD set didn't contain any special features whatsoever. Generally a sign the studio is not confident of the DVD's success.
Question: Two questions about Nancy and John Redcorn's affair. First, has it ever been explained why Nancy had an affair for so long and didn't leave Dale? Her relationship with John seemed to be more than just fun. Also, have the show's creators ever said why they didn't do an episode where Dale finds out about the affair?
Answer: Nancy's and John's relationship was based solely on a physical one. they both seem to agree that THAT was the way things were and nothing more could come from it. The reason why there was never an episode of Dale finding out is cause it was one of the shows running gags.
