Memorable Moments


  • Hank: Well, sure, there are some pros. It's a good deal. And I guess there's nothin' tying us to the house now that we've got automatic sprinklers, but there's also the cons, the biggest one bein', well, Kahn.
  • Bobby: Why is there such a big fence, dad?
Hank: Well, millions of people come to America in search of a better life and we've decided we don't need that many.
Bobby: Did the Souphanousinphones come through the fence?
Hank: No, Bobby. Kahn applied the legal way. Sometimes the system fails us.
  • Peggy: Just make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen, honey. We are much closer to the sun here than in Texas.
  • Hank: Pretty good job, Kahn. I've never heard that song with only one note before.
Kahn: Yeah, it all about rhythm.
  • Connie: I think it's a dud.
Bobby: Yeah. Let's give it 15 more minutes.
  • Kahn: Border right there. Millions of people cross over everyday. We can, too. No big deal.
Hank: Illegally? No! America is my country and I love her. I wouldn't enter her in any way that's unnatural.
  • Hank: This river is filthy. Look at this. Underwear floatin' around.
Dale: Uh, Hank. A little help here?
Mexican Woman: He won't last 2 days in the U.S.
  • Kahn: Look how easy it is to get into this country. Oh, I can't believe I had to learn the Bill of Rights. When am I gonna use that?
Dale: You'd be surprised, Kahn. I take the 5th on a daily basis.
