-->And I started thinking about what would be awesome for Bill Engvall? What would leave me in awe and wonder? And it would have to be if I left this stage tonight and went back to my hotel room. And ShaniaTwain met me at my door, wearing nothing but a [[PrettyInMink fur coat]], holding a note from my wife that said "have a good time." ''That'' would be awesome!\\

Added DiffLines:

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: As he had done previously with Creator/JeffFoxworthy, record producer Scott Rouse sampled some of Engvall's standup bits into original songs with a chorus sung by a session vocalist or famous country artist. The most successful was "Here's Your Sign (Get the Picture)", which took some "here's your sign" jokes from the first album and set them to music with a chorus sung by Travis Tritt. Later albums got a little more adventrous, with tracks such as "I'm a Cheap Drunk" that actually feature Engvall talk-singing original material.

** Similarly, in one of the shows, Bill tells one of Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck..." jokes. Specifically, "If you've ever opened a beer at a funeral, you might be a redneck." When someone asks if that actually happened, he claimed his Uncle Jack did it. However, he later said that his Uncle Jack told him to take it back because [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne it wasn't at the funeral, it was at the benediction.]]
