Bill's a transplanted Louisianan, his parents probably went back there.
Peggy's folks are in Montana, except for her brother who is living on an offshore oilrig in fear of his ex-wife (Luanne's mom.)
Peggy isn't obsessed with Mexico in any way I can tell.
Hank got into propane because Mr. Strickland charmed him away from Jeans West.
Strickand Propane stays in business by gouging their customers.
The firecracker was a dud.
Minh is doing fine, although she misses her husband on his long commutes.

* I think that's the right spelling
Oh, right, Laoma. I figure she's just in that shadowy netherworld of guest characters. I would kind of like her to be a recurrer, though.

I have always assumed that while Peggy was treated poorly by her mother, her brother was the favored child, the "goldenchild", if you will. I wonder if we'll ever find out if this is the case.

Yeah, I like where this is going.

And Peggy knows her Espanol is perfect because she can roll her "r"s. Listen! Rrrr! Rrrr! That's the key to perfect Spanish.

Peggy's mom will be coming to visit again
Again? Has she visited before?
I agree that one of the more subtle jokes about Peggy is how she's always so careful to roll her r's and say "Mehico" instead of "Mexico", but her Spanish is so terrible. One of my favorite episodes is the one about Peggy's crappy Spanish, when she kidnaps the little Mexican girl by mistake.

And, as to Peggy's mom, she also showed up belittling Peggy in the flashback to Hank & Peggy's high school days, where Peggy tries to cook Hank a dinner, but is saved when Hank contracts mono from a soda cup and can't come over to eat. And that's his story, and he's sticking to it. Well, until Peggy comes up with conflicting documentary evidence and a confession from the girl involved. Hey, there's a potential story: Peggy runs for D.A. based on her investigative and deductive abilities. And her Spanish.

All quotes guaranteed inaccurate.
Don't remember who said Peggy's parents have split up, but my question is how do we know this? I don't remember it being said.

And here are some of the episodes we can expect in the rest of the season (note: turns out "Girl You'll Be a Giant Soon" has nothing to do with Connie)
"That's What She Said" - A new co-worker (Ben Stiller) makes Hank so uncomfortable with his off-color jokes that Hank decides to sue for sexual harassment.
"Cheer Factor" - Peggy becomes coach of the high school football cheerleading squad, and devises an aggressive new cheer that leads to her being accused of a hate crime.
"Apres Hank, Le Deluge" - Arlen experiences a flood.
"My Hair Lady" - Luanne and Bill both get jobs at a fancy hairstyling salon. (Guest star, Christina Applegate)
"The Redneck on Rainey Street" - Kahn decides to give up overachieving, and starts hanging out with a redneck gang (guest stars, Tom Petty and Trace Adkins)
"The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hank" - Hank is suspected of abusing workman's compensation. (guest star, Johnny Depp)
"Girl You'll Be a Giant Soon" - Hank and Luanne protest a no-propane rule at the Texas State Fair Grill-Off, but campus radicals take over the protest and turn the whole fair into an anti-globalization rally. (Guest stars, Eljah Wood and "Dax" from Punk'd).

Boomhauer's job? He is a LINUX programmer:
Talk 'bout dan ol' Linux man... Just git... CD tray...
boot LILO install www dot red 10 gallon hat dot com man
talk 'bout... get dang ol' Bill gates underware in a
bind man... know what I mean... toss... dang 'ol 95 in
a dumpster man.
Just kidding. No clue, probably a Gigolo (someone has to compete w/ John Redcorn) But you can find some real boomhauer quotes in this super-fan websiteHERE

Incidentally, there's a bit of a continuity error in Hank's pre-Strickland work experience. In the "Asian Country Club" episode, Hank tests the membership committee guy to see if he's really interested in Hank as a person or as a "token."
He asks something like "Answer me this question: I sell *what* and *what* accessories for a living?"
And the guy guesses, something like "trucks" or "tractors" or "cars", I forget which.
Then Hank remarks something along the lines that the guy's guess *was* an accurate description of what he was selling in the pre-Strickland days (but he still didn't think the guy knew that.)

To be fair, that isn't necessarily a continuity error. They haven't told us precisely when Hank hired on with Strickland Propane; he could have sold tractors AND sold jeans.
