    "That little guy didn't know what was going to hit him."

    First big laugh of the night.

    Hmm, somebody new in Arlen that does things in a sissy way, and it's up to Ol' Hank to set him straight.

    It's gonna be a long night for Animation Domination.

    I'm enjoying it so far.

    But even if it was a crummy episode it's still better than the steaming pile I sat through before it.

    Did he just say "stretch our hammies"? This guy's way too old-fashioned.

    I laughed at the reason they shut down the Straight Arrow: They had trouble scheduling it around American Idol.

    That guy just maced Bill, Dale, and Boomhauer just for being there. That was just cold.

    And this may be the first time in a few years where the person that Hank has a beef with actually was in the right. Usually Hank is the one that's right at the end of the show.

    What I thought to be a typical episode ends up shoved in my (and Hank`s) face by end, so kudos to that. They really are going all out with the last season, aren`t they?

    I thought that was out of character for him, after being so non-violent and careful. I was surprised that he just maced them right away.

    It made perfect sense to me.

    Someone like him who is so non-violent probably was beaten up or attacked more than once in his life, and he probably got mace so he wouldn't have to fight.

    Yeah that is interesting, glad that happened as that spiced the episode up a bit and we didn't have to deal with an episode where Hank's Right when he is clearly in the wrong. After all it is his kids, Hank wasn't aware that some kids might have special needs health wise.

    The Straight-Arrows? That goes all the way back to Episode 3 and I don't think they've been heard of since....way to dig.

    As for the plot.....eh, I've seen this episode before and the writers have been smart enough in the past to notice when something is being dragged out.

    Yes, Hank shouldn't parent other people's kids. But those kids are still gonna grow up screwed up because of that kind of parenting.
