** The episode [[HalloweenSpecial "Hilloween"]] features [[TheFundamentalist Junie Harper, a religious fanatic,]] who takes Bobby, and several other kids on the tour of her "Hellhouse," which aims to show what happens when people stray from the path of God. For example, she shows that an unmarried couple died because: "it's true what they say, [[DeathBySex sex kills!"]] She then shows them a scene where a gorilla eats it's human grandchild (actually a doll) because evolution is taught in schools. In reality, Hellhouses usually spring up around Halloween, particularly in [[TheDeepSouth Southern states, like Texas,]] where the show takes place, [[https://www.buzzfeed.com/sarahburton/evangelical-hell-houses-that-will-terrify-you-if-youre-int?utm_term=.qjG9810Ja#.nuLMlBA7G and they really do give haunted houses a run for their money in terms of sheer horror.]] Though while haunted houses do it for entertainment, [[http://www.religioustolerance.org/hallo_he.htm hellhouses do it to instill a fear of God.]]

** The latter is partially excusable due to Hank's naivete and deep faith in human kindness. Very often, and as a direct result of these traits, Hank is either unwilling to acknowledge or accept the illegal, immoral, and/or unethical nature of Strickland's orders or is genuinely unable to comprehend their underlying nefariousness. However, the reasons for Hank's lack of intuition or common sense in these situations as well as his apparent inability to learn anything from the inevitable discovery of (and repercussions for) said acts are anyone's guess.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Hank repeatedly emphasizes how honest he is and always pushes to be honest during the course of the series. Yet it does not stop him from lying (or having people lie) to dissuade Bobby from aspirations that differ from what he wants Bobby to be/do. It also doesn't stop him from committing all sorts of illegal and underhanded acts for Buck Strickland.

** Hank doesn’t seem to understand that his mother's marriage to his father wasn’t the happiest period in her life and is honestly baffled every time he’s told this. Good examples of this are when he learned that she repeatedly took odd jobs to get out of the house and that her miniature collection was literally her SanityBall.

Good examples of this are when he learned that she repeatedly took odd jobs to get out of the house and that her miniature collection was literally her SanityBall. It ''barely'' sinks in later in the show, where Hank believes his Dad's obviously-fake story about taking his mother on a dream vacation at first, but only requires minimal prompting to understand the (quite abusive) truth.

** In "Peggy Makes the Big Leagues", it seems at first that Peggy is dealing with one in David Kalaiki-Alii because he won't study. David, for the most part, isn't a jerk but is just lazy and a little self-absorbed. He wasn't happy when he learned that his mother was willing to pretend that he had a severe learning disorder to get Hank and Peggy to stop inquiring about his grades, which they immediately believed it.

David admitted that he deserved Peggy thinking of him as mentally challenged after neglecting all her attempts at making him better in math and explains to her it was a lie his mom made up.



** Even though Peggy is a complete SmallNameBigEgo and generally annoying and incompetent, she genuinely cares about Hank and Bobby and can do some pretty badass stuff to defend them.

* FakingTheDead: In one episode, Peggy gets involved in a pyramid scheme while the real Rusty Shackleford shows up, alive and well, demanding Dale stop using his name as an alias and sign a document. They stage a hilariously awful fight that ends with Hank's shed exploding. Part of the floor collapses and reveals Peggy and Dale in a bunker, popping champagne (Dale suggests they pretend to be ghosts as a last-ditch). Peggy's higher-up in the pyramid scheme asks to be reported dead as well.

* GunsDoNotWorkThatWay: In "Dog Dale Afternoon", when Dale claims to have killed Rusty Shackleford, a police officer makes a pumping motion on the forestock like a pump-action shotgun. Granted, there are actually shotguns, including pump-action models, with detachable magazines like his has - but the weapon in question is otherwise a straight animated copy of the M14, which is an automatic CoolGuns/{{battle rifle|s}}.

* ArtisticLicenseSports: In the PaintballEpisode, both Hank's team and the teenage bullies do things that would get them thrown off the range instantly in real life. No one's wearing face masks or eye protection, required before even stepping onto the playing field. There are no marshals or range masters anywhere to be seen. The bullies line up Hank's friends in a firing squad-style shooting. In a rematch, Hank and company change clothes on the field, use tape recorders, and pretend to be police officers to distract the teens.
