Kelly: Let me guess, Billy Ray Bundy?
Bud: Damn straight, missy. Country's in.
Kelly: Then what country are you?
Bud: I'm going to ignore that, human peep show. Now, I've chewed my weight in Red Man. I've learned my country sayings like, "Ornery" and, "I thought you was 18". Well, as I live and barely breathe in these jeans, I'll be riding the country charts tonight.

Pretty Funny
23 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved the long wait Al goes through on the phone to get a car part. The more serious subplot is Bud trying to cope with his inability to get a date. It ends leaving you wondering if it will be continued in the next episode, but apparently they dropped it with no explanation. Also Kelly's motivation to save electricity is funny. Darcy and Miss Bundy don't play a big part in this episode. Al and Bundy's plots are the majority of the episode. This story show a new turn for the series ,as they attempt to add a serious note to the show. I highly recommend this episode. And think you should purchase the series just for this episode.
