Typo fix: bear -> beer.
* {{LSBK}}: "Beer and Loathing", notable for being on of the few if not the only times I completely side with Peggy over Hank. Long story short, Peggy gets a job at Hank's favorite beer company, there's a beer shortage and hilarity ensues. Except no. Hank completely betrays Peggy's trust to go get bear in Mexico, even after she told him he'd only have to wait 5 days, and then after they got sick from it he gets angry at her for not telling. Despite the facts that, one, she specifically told him not to go down there, 2 tried to get rid of the beer after finding it with the reason being obvious for anyone with half a brain, and three, him acting like if he wasn't in the same position (she said a confidentiality agreement) like he wouldn't have acted the same way. The real kicker is though even though all of this is more or less acknowledged in the episode, they still try to end it with them both being in the wrong. No, just no.

* Tropers/{{Demetrios}}: The episode "Fun With Jane and Jane." The cult activity in that episode was rather creepy for my tastes. Not Nightmare Fuel kind of creepy, fortunately, but still creepy enough to create a little bit of MoodWhiplash. Plus I'm sure this line from Peggy caused a lot of [[DarthWiki/WallBanger wall-banging]]: "Now now, Luanne, all sororities have hazing." Why do I get the feeling [[UnfortunateImplications not a whole lot of college students took that line well]]?

Removing wick to Wall Banger
** Darkrage6: Peggy was also pretty bad in that episode, siding with Hank and somehow making Bobby out to be the bad person (true he could've been less smug about Hank not being able to do anything and he could've explained what happened to Peggy, but somehow I doubt the latter would've made her any less of a bitch) and Peggy tackles him and tries to subdue him and continues defending Hank's ridiculous actions, but the biggest WallBanger is when Bobby gets angry and kicks Peggy in the crotch and she doesn't feel any pain at all. That is flat out false! Getting kicked in the crotch is every bit as painful for women as it is for men, and for KOTH to imply that it's not is not only incredibly stupid but dangerous as well.

* Troper/{{Collectionchange}}:''Escape from Party Island'' was a mistake as bad as ''Sleight of Hank'', the plot is that Hank takes his mother and her friends to an island to get little glass " miniature" glass figures, which they seem to have an uncomfortably strong affinity to, which then hosts a rowdy Spring Break which causes Hank to worry about their safety and want to leave. The reason this was a DMoS for me is that Hank is basically treated like trash the whole episode by the old women he goes out of his way to protect and accomodate. Also, Tilly (Hank's mother) keeps excusing her friends actions, and doesn't ever defend him once (which makes the episode where she wishes Hank to defend her seem deeply myopic). A particularly bad moment early on is when they have cucumber sandwiches, and offer some to Hank, and when he refuses because he doesn't like cucumbers, Tilly " apologizes" for him and then seems to agree with her friends that there is something wrong with Hank not liking something they do. We also find out that during Cotton and her marriage, for a period of years, she [[AbusiveParents abandoned Hank to his crazy father]] just so she could save herself mentally with her little glass miniatures. But the worst is the ending, when Hank risks them missing the boat at her request for a miniature they forgot, and gets the Aesop that [[BrokenAesop he should be more considerate of his mother's fragile sanity!?]] [[FlatWhat What]]. This episode calls into question whether Hank really is wrong in trying to connect more with Cotton, since this episode shows her to be an even more selfish and unreasonable parent then him.

wick cleanup
** {{Troper/Disney23}}: [[TwoWordsObviousTrope Four words:]] "What. Makes. Bobby. Run?". Seriously, it looks so out of place for a down-to-earth show like this. Here, Bobby refuses to accept the mascot tradition of getting his ass kicked by the rival school's marching band and he subsequently get branded a pariah and bullied by schoolmates, teachers and townsfolk alike. It was just very unsettling, especially the end where he finally goes through with it with the spectators taking pride at the (so-called) tradition. The mean-spiritedness and contrivity of this episode almost rivals [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons "The Boys Of Bummer"]] in terms of suckiness.

** GarudaOne: If it softens the blow any, this is one of the ''very'' few times that A)[[WhatTheHellHero Hank is actually called out on it,]] B) [[NiceJobBreakingItHero it comes to bite him in the ass in the end]], and C) ''he actually seems to get the memo it was a bad idea.''

* {{Troper/ElegantVamp}}: In "Luanne Virgin 2.0", it's revealed that Peggy had pre-marital sex with a boy (as a test to see if he was gay) and Hank acts like a complete jackass about it. It would be one thing if it happened while they were together, but this was before she even ''met'' Hank, and it happened at least 20 years ago. Luanne and Rhett, one of the boys from the virginity group, decide to get married so she doesn't have to be a virgin anymore. Peggy wants to convince her not to go through with it, but Hank continues to act like an ass and tells Luanne to get married just to spite Peggy. She tries to apologize to him, she tells Luanne that if she had married the first person she slept with, she wouldn't have met Hank, and even has a ceremony where you become a "born again virgin" just so Hank will forgive her, and he '''''still doesn't change how he feels''''' until he sees her, in his words, "whatnots". Yeah, it wasn't her apologies, or her heartfelt speech about how she wouldn't have met the love of her life if she had married the first person she slept with, OR the fact that she was willing to become a born-again virgin all for the sake of his forgiveness. I was dumbfounded that she would possibly want to stay married to someone like that after everything she did for him.

** TheTrueYuma: I took it as that Hank doesn't like the idea of Bobby defending himself by kicking persons in the groin because you really shouldn't resort to that unless it's the only way out. However, Hank never mentioned that part. It's also important to get a few things straight: 1. Bobby shouldn't have kicked Hank in the groin because he got annoyed by his dad (there's stuff that Hank has done that is worthy of him getting kicked in the groin, but that isn't one of them). 2. Bobby kicked Hank so hard that not only did he pass out, but he may have lost a testicle in the process. 3. Because of this, Hank couldn't move comfortably and had to sit with an ice cream box against his crotch. You'd be really pissed off too if 2 and 3 happened to you. 4. Bobby took a women's self defense class despite the man at the front desk advising him not to. He wasn't learning how to defend himself against bullies. He was learning how to stop muggers and would-be rapists. Furthermore, Bobby turned into a bully himself when he started kicking guys at school in the groin, despite that none of them had antagonized him that episode (no, "they could have done it off-screen" doesn't count). Bobby is far from blameless in all of this. Not contesting the entry, it just POs me that Hank and Peggy get so much blame in this episode yet Bobby seems to get off scot-free in comparison. I just think it's important to get facts straight with these.
