Quotes from "Flush With Power"
Written by Alex Gregory & Peter Huyck

HANK: Stage 1 water rationing wasn't too bad -- I just cut out Peggy's Crystal Light. When we hit stage 2, I took away Bobby's bath. But stage 3 is killing my lawn. And that affects everyone.

BOBBY (taking a bath): I've got a girlfriend now. She expects me to smell a certain way.
HANK: Then suck it up and take a shower.
BOBBY: I don't like to stand that long.

HANK: So, Peggy, I'm just curious -- how many flushes was that?
PEGGY: A lady does not discuss such matters.
BOBBY: It was six. I'm averaging four myself, but I'm just a kid.

HANK: I'm going to call the water company, see about getting the high-flows back.
PEGGY: Uh-uh, I already called. They take the old toilets, they smash them up, then they dump them in the Gulf of Mehico to create an artificial coral reef.

HANK: The Board of Zoning and Resources did this? I love their setback requirements.

BILL: They say power is the ultimate aphrodesiac. Hank, can you introduce me to Madeline Albright?

HANK: 1.6 gallons per flush per low-flow toilet. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? But unfortunately, in the real world, where things don't flush the way they do in the movies, it can take three, four, or in the case of my wife Peggy Hill, six flushes to get completely remove solid waste. The fact is, these toilets are squandering more water than they are saving. Thank you.

NATE: You're quite the boy scout, aren't you?
HANK: Made it to eagle scout.

HANK: Sweet Saint Augustine!

PEGGY: I'm sorry I'm late. I stopped to powder my nose -- it took eight flushes.

(Peggy's musings)
- You know it's autumn when the leaves are leaving and the pine needles are sticking around.
- I'm tired of reading negative stories about today's youth. You might say I'm on an all pro-teen diet.
- The people who say you can't make an omelette without cracking eggs are always pretty hard-boiled.
- They say time flies, but with the way the airlines are going these days, maybe time should take the bus.
- They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but if you don't go to the doctor for regular checkups, you're bananas.
- Both people and rivers make deposits in banks. Maybe that's why people squander money like it's water.
- How are you supposed to look up a word in a dictionary when you don't know how to spell it to begin with?

NATE: Have it your way, you do-gooding phonies! I hope you all rot in hell! See you next Tuesday.

PEGGY: From now on, no one will flush a toilet in this town without thanking Hank Hill.
HANK: Yeah. Well, it's still worth it.
