** In "Luanne Virgin 2.0," Luanne participates in a church ceremony to become a "born again virgin" and agrees to join a Christian abstinence outreach program. While Methodists do believe premarital sex is a sin, "born again virginity" and a heavy focus on "purity" are more characteristic of Evangelical and Baptist demoninations.

** Played with whenever it comes to grilling; no matter what kind of food it is, if it's made on a charcoal grill, Hank will not only refuse to eat it, but lecture whoever is within the vicinity about how it's essentially toxic waste. It's implied that Peggy actually loves Charcoal-grilled meats, but she can never admit to it.
* TrueCompanions: Hank, Dale, Bill and Boomhauer for sure. No matter how much of a creepy loser Bill is or how much of an untrustworthy idiot Dale is the four will always be best friends. Even when Hank, Dale and Bill stole Boomhauer's beloved car, accidentally destroyed it after a joyride and lied about it for 20 years Boomhauer was only mad at them for two weeks (Hank was reduced to one week when Bobby told Boomhauer Hank always quotes him).

The entire series is also available on the iTunes Store and Cartoon Network has been airing reruns ever since the show's final years, so it's very easy to tune in and find a favorite episode or an episode you've never seen before (though, as of 2015, Creator/AdultSwim does not air the episodes of ''King of the Hill'' from seasons one and two, except for the Season 2 episode "Hilloween", whenever the holiday comes around. The episodes that currently air are from three to 13, plus the four unaired-on-FOX episodes). The [=DVDs=] of seasons after Season 6 were cancelled in 2006 due to poor sales, but the rest of the seasons were licensed by Olive Films and they started releasing them in 2014.

*** Cotton takes the fall for Bobby when he accidentally lights a fire in the bathroom and is blamed for arson.
*** Cotton doesn't have much respect for Peggy. However, when she's learning to walk again, for ''no apparent reason'', Cotton helps rehabilitate Peggy in his own way. It seems like an almost OutOfCharacterMoment until Hank explains to Peggy that the doctors thought that Cotton would never walk again, and that Cotton ''had'' gone through the same situation.

* ThatCameOutWrong: In their addiction support group, Bobby mentions that he's been an addict since his dad "let" him smoke a whole carton, to horrified reactions. Hank tries to correct him, in that he "made" him smoke them (neglecting to mention it was a punishment for smoking at all), to even more horrified reactions.



* YankTheDogsChain: In "Tankin' it to the Streets", Bill notices that the vast majority of his military medical records are censored. Dale gets ahold of the original documents and spills the secrets: When Bill joined the military in his '20s, he was given an experimental injection that would cause excess hair and fat growth. It was designed to prepare soldiers for being stationed in Alaska. Upon hearing this, Bill is at first dismayed that the military gave him this drug without telling him the side effects (he assumed they were booster shots), gets drunk and steals a tank from the base. Hank, Dale, and Boomhauer convince Bill that at least now he knows that his shortcomings aren't actually his fault. However, later Dale mentions the "name" of the injection: "Placebo". So Bill wasn't really being injected with body-altering substances, and he realizes that his hair growth and excess body fat ''are'' his own doing. Typically Bill is getting his chain yanked whenever anything positive happens to him thanks to StatusQuoIsGod. Especially if it involves women in any way. Poor man just can't catch a break.

* TheUnfairSex: Not played entirely straight; Nancy cheating on Dale is played for laughs rather than to make Dale look like a bad husband. In fact, he's usually portrayed pretty sympathetically as far as this issue goes. It gets brought up in the episode "Night and Deity" where Nancy thinks Dale is flirty with a female exterminator and Nancy is afraid that he will cheat. Dale mentions that he never had any problems with Nancy spending so much time with John Redcorn.

* RadishCure: In the episode "Keeping Up with Our Joneses," Hank makes Bobby smoke a whole carton of cigarettes as punishment for catching him smoking. The plan backfired spectacularly; not only does Bobby end up hooked, but Hank and Peggy fell victim to their own past cigarette habits as well. In their addiction support group, Bobby mentions that he's been an addict since his dad "let" him smoke a whole carton, to horrified reactions. Hank tries to correct him, in that he "made" him smoke them (neglecting to mention it was a punishment for smoking at all), to even more horrified reactions.
