Cotton is later informed that Kahn is Japanese and looks him over once before declaring "He ain't Japanese. He's Laotian."
King of the Hill was always slightly better than I expected it to be.
That picnic table is a wizard. It's on Hank's property yet it always disappears and reappears between events. Thanksgiving with John Redcorn, Lou Anne's mom coming back home (although that might have been on Bill's lawn) but you never see it much outside of those events. Hank doesn't have a shed and there is no way he would trust his property with Dale or Bill and Boomhauer has no need for a picnic table since he has lawnchairs and a hot tub. It's also not in Hank's garage.
Then you'd be wrong. Hank quit smoking when he and Peggy got married and picked it up again only when he caught Bobby smoking and decided to teach him a lesson and when he was caught up in the Strickland divorce and the murder of Debby. During neither case was the picnic table present. The table is obviously made from oak and Hank wouldn't just disassmble something to use it for it's resources as he always goes to the hardware store and picks up fresh materials before starting a project. I suggest you check your facts, Tom Collins.
Wow KoTH nerds exist.
HA! I troll all of you. It's really Kahn's lawn. Why would Hank and crew be sitting on boxes in their own lawn? But yet, where did this picnic table go when Dion Sanders' car got rolled into Kahn's lawn?
That's not true. Hank trusts his equipment to all four of his friends equally, because they're men of Texan honor. He lent Dale and Bill his rented backhoe, so why not a picnic table?
He wouldn't trust the raising of his son to them, though. This show has more rules about "honor" than "The Godfather".
Bill and Dale STOLE the backhoe because they were mad at Hank for hanging out with Hal. He first noticed them missing because the backhoe was gone and no one had seen Dale in a while. On his search for them, he carried a picture of Dale and Bill together and a picture of the backhoe which got more recognition than either of the two. He might trust them with things but often resents their shenanigans. He has said on numerous occassions that he expects stupid crap out of Dale and Bill but Boomhauer is usually well-behaved with tools and such. The show might have a lot to do with honor and trust but his friends have proven themselves not worthy of Hank's trust. The backhoe incident, the firehouse burning down, the trip to Mexico. Hank does a lot for all of them and doesn't get a lot in return as far as materialistic things. What he does get back is trust and friendship. Dale has said on many occassions that he only really trusts Hank (the sniper stand-off episode, the kidney episode) and his friends usually try to pull through for him any way they can (Dale saving Hank's ass when the gun club was taken over). The show is about keeping your friends regardless of how big of fuck-ups they are and helping them out when their problems overwhelm them even if it is their own damn fault.
One of my favorite moments in this show is when Hank finds out he has a half-brother who's Japanese and Peggy warns him that he may be attracted to her because of her "exotic unbound feet." This series is pure gold.
