Goofs

Grampa's dentures fit the bite mark on the frozen old mountain climber, implying that Grampa is the one that tried to eat him, not the other way around. But this climb would have happened in Grampa's youth, he would have had his regular teeth back then. So why do the dentures fit the bite mark? See more »

Quotes

Sherpa #1: Brad and Neil were quite insistent you not die.
Sherpa #2: Frankly we don't care.
Homer Simpson: I'm going to climb this entire mountain on my own!
Sherpa #1: Then technically, shouldn't you go back down and start all over?

A Very Fun Episode that sees Homer being taken out of his Comfort Zone,
3 March 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

King of the Hill is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes. I like seeing episodes like this, where we see one of the characters being put in a position that we never thought we would and hilarity ensues, in this case we see Homer struggling to climb up a mountain, and to make matters more hilarious he must do it on a diet of power bars. I also enjoyed the guest roles of Brendan Fraser and Steven Weber, who were both quite unlikeable characters, but they both had very funny dialogue and I enjoyed their role. It's certainly not the highlight of the ninth season, but King of the Hill is still a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

After he starts going to the gym, Homer is spotted by an energy bar company who want him to climb a mountain as a promotion for their product.
