Question: Everyone tells Luanne that her father is working on an oil rig, not wanting her to know that he is actually in jail. But she knew that her mother was in jail, so why not tell the truth about her father?

Chosen answer: Couple things, first only Peggy knew the truth about Hoyt (Luanne's father) being in prison and Peggy is the one who said he's on an oil rig. But, Hoyt is Peggy's brother, so she could have been trying to hide the fact her brother is in jail. Lucky (Luanne's husband) deduced Hoyt had been in prison, but seems to be the only other person to know the truth, so when Hoyt went back to prison, he kept Peggy's lie up to spare Luanne. Additionally, Luanne was there when her mother stabbed Hoyt and was arrested, so it's not like someone had to break the news to her and they couldn't hide the fact. With Hoyt, even if Peggy wasn't trying to protect her brother's reputation, she didn't want Luanne, who is a sensitive and emotional young woman, to have to deal with knowing both parents are in jail.

Death of a Propane Salesman (2) - S3-E1

Question: Why does Kahn act so emotional about Buckley (especially when he criticizes Luanne for not crying)? Even though he says that he sought Buckley out and got to know him, there haven't been any signs of him befriending Buckley until now.

Chosen answer: Because Kahn doesn't like Hank and Buckley annoyed Hank so much.

The Man Who Shot Kane Skretteberg - S2-E7

Question: When we first meet Kane Skretteberg, what is the song he and his band are playing in the garage? It is right before they start singing Funcenter over and over.

Chosen answer: If you are talking about the "Thou shalt not do this, thou shalt not do that" song, I'm not sure if a song like that actually exists. Green Day, the guest voices on the episode, might have just been improvising to keep their appearance from being too obvious.

The Wedding of Bobby Hill - S3-E14

Question: When Luanne tells Bobby that he wasn't in Rad's inner circle and he was just a hanger-on, what does she mean when she says "like AJ"?

Chosen answer: This is a reference to the Backstreet Boys, of whom AJ was the least popular member.

Answer: We're never told, but he was just a friend of Rad.

Transnational Amusements Presents: Peggy's Magic Sex Feet - S4-E23

Question: Hank says that Boomhauer has known Peggy longer than he has. How did Boomhauer and Peggy meet first?

Chosen answer: It is never mentioned.

It's Not Easy Being Green - S5-E16

Question: How could Bobby and the rest of Mr. McKay's class have showed up at Strickland Propane without Hank knowing? Surely the students would not have been allowed to go on a field trip without a parent's permission. If Peggy had signed a form at some point, she mostly likely would have mentioned to Hank that Bobby would be at his workplace.

Chosen answer: Peggy is a substitute teacher. She may have been teaching at the school the day the permission slips were sent out and Bobby could have just walked to her classroom, had her sign it, and taken it back to his teacher and both just forgot to tell Hank when they got home. ("There are ways" is my point).

Question: What happened to Peggy's brother (Luanne's father)? Why isn't he around?

Chosen answer: Luanne's father does show up in an entire episode: the 12th season finale 'Life: A Loser's Manual.' He stays with the Hills after getting out of jail. However, Peggy has not told anyone that he has been in prison, not even Hank. They believe that he works on an oil rig. But it all comes to light when he causes trouble and lands Lucky and then himself in jail. By the end of the episode he is headed back to prison. The Hills and Lucky keep up the oil rig charade for Luanne's sake.

Question: I know that this is a cartoon, but could Hank and Peggy really produce a blonde son, with both them having brown hair?

Chosen answer: Parents, even if they each have brown hair and brown eyes, can produce a blonde, blue-eyed child if they both carry the recessive genes for those traits.

Question: Last year, Fox decided to cancel "King of the Hill". Was "Uh-Oh Canada" the final episode or do they have more episodes to come before the show ends?

Hank's Bad Hair Day - S4-E19

Question: At work, when Buck first sees Hank's bleached blonde hair, he says "You look like the fella who killed the other fella." Is this a reference to any real-life crime?

Chosen answer: No, it's just a throw-away joke.

Show generally

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?

Chosen 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.

High Anxiety (2) - S4-E14

Question: There may not be any reason for this, but why did Buck want to ride to the quarry in Hank's truck?

Chosen answer: At that point in the investigation Buck was trying to frame Hank for the murder of Debbie. Buck tried incriminating him on tape and planting a shotgun shell in his truck. Using Hank's truck to go to the quarry gave him an opportunity to plant the shotgun shell. Why he picked the quarry specifically is left unknown, but it was likely one place that would be deserted and easy to speak freely.

Question: Does anyone know why the seventh season hasn't come out on DVD yet?

Chosen 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.

Racist Dawg - S7-E20

Question: When Hank told Roger that he was accused of being a racist, why did Roger ask if the man who called him that was wearing a bow tie?

Chosen answer: Roger was referring to the Nation Of Islam, an organisation preaching self-reliance for black people within an Islamic framework. Members wear smart dark suits with red bow ties.

Show generally

Question: Has there ever been any clear indication that Luanne does or doesn't know about Nancy and John Redcorn's affair?

Chosen 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.

Pretty, Pretty Dresses - S3-E9

Question: Why did this episode show a scene first (where the guys are standing outside and Bill starts crying) and then the theme song and opening credits for the show? Almost all of the other episodes have the theme song and credits first, then the entire show.

Chosen answer: In a number of episodes especially in the first few seasons, there was every now and then a short scene before the episode. One for example was "Bills were made to be broken". The guys are listening to the radio and all run home to enter the competition that is announced. Boomhauer uses his cellphone and answers the question before it goes to the opening theme and credits.

Mistakes

When Leanne first arrives, she kisses Luanne, and gets red lipstick marks on her. Later, when Leanne and Luanne are near the bathroom and Leanne says "I knew you would understand" (about Bill), she kisses Luanne, but there are no marks from her lipstick. Even if she mostly kissed Luanne's neck, at least part of some of the marks should show when Luanne turns to leave (after talking to Peggy).

Trivia

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".
