In an episode of King of the Hill called “The Unbearable Blindness of Laying”, Hank drives a semi-truck to transport a large amount of corn syrup to the Arlen Sugarbaker’s Home Brew store. After Bobby, Joseph, and Connie accidentally spill the corn syrup in the store, Hank is forced to drive the truck back to the mill and get more syrup.
The episode centers around Hank’s quest to find someone who can drive a semi-truck, as he himself is not legally allowed to do so. He initially asks Boomhauer, but Boomhauer turns him down.
He then goes to Dale, who agrees but then backs out at the last minute. Finally, Hank turns to Luanne for help and she agrees to take on the task.
Hank is understandably hesitant about letting Luanne drive such a large vehicle but ultimately agrees. Despite his misgivings, Luanne proves herself capable and navigates her way around Arlen with relative ease. Even with some minor setbacks along the way (like running out of gas), she manages to get the job done and deliver the syrup safely.
The episode ends with Hank expressing his admiration for Luanne’s driving skills and thanking her for helping him out in his time of need.
Overall, “The Unbearable Blindness of Laying” is an enjoyable episode that features Hank driving a semi-truck. It showcases Luanne’s ability as a driver while also providing some laughs along the way. This episode serves as a great example of why King of The Hill remains one of television’s most beloved sitcoms.
