King of The Hill’s Cast Being Typical Texan
Texas is known for its eccentric characters, and King of the Hill brought them to life. The show’s main character, Hank Hill, is a no-nonsense father from Arlen, Texas. He was always ready to fight for what he believed in and worked hard to provide for his family.
His son Bobby was an artistic dreamer with huge ambitions and a knack for getting into trouble. His wife, Peggy, was an overachiever who loved getting into debates about anything related to Texas culture or politics. Together they formed the ultimate Texan family that could be seen in every episode laughing and bickering their way through life’s adventures.
Let’s enjoy some of their best quotes:
Bobby: “What if somebody wants theirs well-done?”
Hank: “We ask them politely, yet firmly to leave.”
“Why would anybody do drugs when they can just a mow a lawn?”
Don’t sometimes think hank is just right.
“You cannot make authentic guacamole out of lima beans and Ritz crackers.”
“Let me ask you this: A guy breaks into your house, but you don’t have a gun. How are you going to shoot him?”

Just a Texan and their love for football.
Hank: “You know what’s not cool, Bobby?”
“Bobby, I never thought I’d need to tell you this, but I would be a bad parent if I didn’t. Soccer was invented by European ladies to keep them busy while their husbands did the cooking.”
Now we are sure that Hank has a good grasp on the origin of soccer.
“If Bobby doesn’t love football, he won’t lead a fulfilling life, and then he’ll die.”
“Guns don’t kill people, the government does.”

“Think about it, Luanne. Why would you bring a child to a department store to buy a dryer when his birthday is three-and-a-half weeks away? It just doesn’t make sense!”
Bobby does battle a lot in school, but here his point is solid. Why on earth would it ever be rational for a family to set out to buy a dryer several weeks before another person’s birthday? It’s just a straightforward strategy to search for birthday presents. There are no other sensible reasons aside from just needing a new dryer.
“And white people always be walking around like this…like they be crushing diamonds in there or something! Look at me! I’m white!”
So you met Bobby the stand-up comedian.
“Honey, marriage is about trust, and she, well she betrayed him. It was like a knife in his heart when she stuck that fork in his back.”
“My dad sure wants me to be at that haunted house. Last time he wanted me to be somewhere so bad, I woke up without tonsils!”
“I was getting ready, but I worked up an appetite looking for dress pants, so I ordered a pizza, and that ate up a chunk of time.”
Can’t find an excuse for why you’re late? Maybe this one will work! While it may sound too good to be true, believe it or not, this is actually a legitimate excuse. Those dress pants can be hard to come by! what’s a hungry person to do? Before you know it, your stomach has taken over, and you’re in need of a pizza.
Despite having a dad who is the pure embodiment of hard work, Bobby is just a slothful and chubby kid.
“Donuts were one of life’s little joys. If the government bans puppy breath and good yawns, I’ll have nothing left to live for!”
I hope by now you know why we love Bobby so much.
“Luanne, I know we’ve had our differences, but I was kinda hoping we could make up and not get married.”
Audience members will see this scene as very funny on its own as an aside in “The Wedding of Bobby Hill.” Bobby and Luanne squabble over newly-introduced Luanne’s new man. This dispute eventually leads to Luanne shoving Bobby’s fruit pies in the dirt and Bobby replacing Luanne’s birth control pills with half of her candy.
“Yeah, there’s nothing worse than people not respecting you.”
I can feel Luanne’s pain.
