Bobby's essay that Peggy covers up with Wesley's drawing reads: "Some people might try to tell you that pollution is good. I think they are wrong. From all the research I have done it seems to me that pollution is bad. Very bad. Pollution makes the sky a funny brown color and that is bad. The only way to stop all this pollution is if we will just stop spilling oil and throwing our garbage around. My dad says that if we all used propane there would be a lot less pollution because propane is a clean burning efficient fuel. I am so sure that pollution is bad that when I get this paper back I will never throw it out." See more »

This has some great moments
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peggy hill is suddenly contacted by a fradulant sociopath who is currently on the states death row, posing as a former student to see if she can help smuggled drugs into him and Peggy Hill mistakenly agrees to help him, as she is tricked into believing that this lowlife used to be one of her students.

The convict is very objective and manipulative and it is clear that Peggy is becoming more and more involved in this "exploitative" relationship. One day, the convict tells her that he does not know how to read and asks her if she can go to his old house to get a boggle set. She brings him three sets, each time bringing a bigger and bigger hour glass that is filled with cocaine, and later on the convict notifies her that she is smuggling him drugs and begins to make demands.

Hank Hill is great in this episode and he clearly plays the right side, trying to restrict Peggy from getting herself involved in such an abusive and exploitative relationship with such a sociopath. When she refuses, the convict calls the house threatening to turn her into the state and hank picks up the phone, makes it very clear that he is not to bother the house.

One of the best things about this episode is you have a very clever conman who will go to any dirty means to get what he wants and then you have hank hill, a guy who means well but does not always have the brains or ability to win. When hank threatens the inmate on the phone, he is reminded of the charges Peggy will face if she is found guilty.

This overall is a better king of the hill show and really depicts the dangers of having prison pen pals, hooking up with death row inmates and the overall dangers of dealing with the wrong people. Because of this I think this is one of the better episodes
