HANK: Worker's comp? Do I look like a hobo to you? No, sir, I am not going on welfare.
DOCTOR COLE: If you insist on working, I'll write you a prescription for pain medicine.
HANK: Whoa there, Dr. Feelgood, I work at a propane dealership, not Woodstock.
DOCTOR COLE: Then I'm sorry, but all Western medicine can really offer you are drugs and nothing. But some people have had good luck with yoga. I hear there's a studio over in McMaynerbury.

HANK: But what about Team Strickland?
MR. STRICKLAND: Yeah, I never understood what you meant by that, Hank.

HANK: If it please the fraud hearing, I would like to call a surprise witness.
CHAIRMAN: Wow! We've never had one of those before.
