King Of The Hill / Awesome - Tv Tropes

King Of The Hill / Awesome - Tv Tropes

Bobby: Why do you have to hate what you don't understand? Hank knocking out the coach after realizing how bad he was. It's even better when context: Hank sees the Coach chasing after the kids in his car, promptly stops the sociopath and then decks him when the guy tries to justify it. After Bill's Jerk Ass doctor scares him into believing he'll succumb to and die from complications of diabetes (because of his nonstop junk food eating), Bill not only kept his blood sugar down, but went to the hospital and personally kicked the doctor's ass, which was ignored by a nurse that the doctor was rude to earlier in the episode. Earlier in the episode, Bill had been ostracized from the local wheelchair rugby team due to him standing up (they had thought he'd already lost the use of his legs) and being unable to prove he's diabetic. As he's home downing bag after bag of sugar trying to become diabetic again, the team leader, Thunder, came over with Hank (who had filled him in on the situation), slaps the sugar out of Bill's hand and told Bill that he managed to beat diabetes, something most people can't do their entire lives, in a matter of months by just living healthy and that is far more inspirational than he was before. This managed to inspire the literal asskicking above. Dale's plot to save his friends from a nutter who was elected president of the gun club: Hank, Bill and Boomhauer were held captive in Mad Dog's cabin and Dale tried to rescue them but was easily caught. However, Dale was able to play to Mad Dog's paranoia by pretending he was a CIA contract killer and was receiving radio messages. At that moment, a stream of florist vans swarms the property and due to Dale previously telling the gun club his favorite tactic is to bring in CIA agents disguised as flower del Continue reading >>

King Of The Hill Quotes: "girl, You'll Be A Giant Soon"

Quotes from "Girl, You'll Be a Giant Soon" HANK: Look, son, there's Big Tex. He's like the Grand Canyon and the Statue of Liberty rolled into one. HANK: Yep. He always tells us what to do, and see, and eat. I've gotten better advice from him than from my own father. LUANNE: If the election were held today, I would vote for... nobody. I know that elections don't happen today. They happen on Tuesdays in months ending in "vember." HANK: Propane is excluded from the Texas State Fair. DALE: Rules are rules, Hank. Without rules there would be chaos. That's why we no longer visit the public pool. BILL: Yeah, poor, poor Hank, with his wife, and his son, and his hair. Nobody will let him grill with propane! MELLY-ANNE: I'm afraid we're only showing this house to potential buyers. No Looky-Lous. PEGGY: We have got to come back. If we do not get to see that laundry room, then the victim will have died in vain. LUANNE: I hate smoke. It makes me feel like I just kissed a guy who smokes. Not that you'd know what it's like to kiss a guy. Well, some guys do, just not you. HANK: You mean some kind of crazy protest grill? That's not the kind of thing I normally go in for. LUANNE: But they're pushing around propane, and propane doesn't have arms to push back with. LUANNE: I want to celebrate. Toss another bucket of propane on the fire! HANK: Luanne, maybe I should get you some brochures. BOOMHAUER: I love ol' Hank, man, but got-dang, talkin' 'bout "Propane, propane, propane." Y'know, I don't talk about what I do for a living, man. BILL: Poor Bobby, being replaced by Luanne. My dad replaced me with TV and the bottle. LUANNE: Wow, it looks like you hate everything. Do you think you could hate charcoal too? ZACK: Dude, things that are murder is my thing. Smoke is murder! JASON: Luanne, this Continue reading >>

Dia-bill-ic Shock | King Of The Hill Wiki | Fandom Powered By Wikia

Dia-BILL-ic Shock is an episode of King of the Hill . It is the first episode of the thirteenth season , originally aired September 28, 2008. It was written by Sanjay Shah and directed by Ronald Rubio . At an amusement park with Hank and Bobby , Bill downs huge amounts of sugary snacks until he passes out from a sugar spike and is taken to the hospital. At the hospital a doctor diagnoses Bill with diabetes and tells him to stop eating junk food and to work out. Bill doesn't follow his doctors advice and passes out again. At the hospital, a different and mean spirited, egotistical doctor sees Bill as someone who'll never learn and coldly tells him that he will lose his legs and that he should start using a wheelchair. Hank and the others are shocked and saddened when Bill returns to the alley in his wheelchair, and believing this to be a permanent change conspire to remodel Bill's house to make everything in it wheelchair-accessible and help him out however else they can. When Hank takes a downcast Bill to the park, Bill is befriended by a wheelchair rugby player nicknamed Thunder , a sports enthusiast with whom Bill finds camaraderie, who teaches him that he can still be independent despite being wheelchair-bound. After Thunder lends Bill his spare rugby chair, Bill takes to the court himself; over time he proves to be a competitive, capable player, and his depression turns to confident delight with his new upper-body strength as earns him respect in others and women find him attractive. However, as the rugby players loudly celebrate one of their games at a bar one night, Bill tipsily excuses himself to use the restroom... and makes his way on foot, impeded only by the beers he'd had. When the other players indignantly protest Bill's 'deception', he attempts to explain Continue reading >>

Managing Diabetes Is Expensive — It's Time To Step Up Our Game

Managing Diabetes Is Expensive — It's Time To Step Up Our Game

More than 29 million Americans have diabetes — but a staggering quarter of them don't know it. That needs to change. When diabetes isn't controlled, patients face increased risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, and even amputation. Policymakers in Washington should acknowledge this national health crisis and move quickly in the new year to address it. People with diabetes need a proper diagnosis and access to the quality, affordable healthcare. Washington has already taken some important steps. Medicare, for example, covers diabetes screenings. That action has helped patients identify whether they're at high risk for developing the disease. This year, federal officials also announced that Medicare will cover the National Diabetes Prevention Program, a network of lifestyle intervention plans aiming to lower diabetes risk in pre-diabetic individuals. Nearly a third of Americans overall and close to half of seniors are pre-diabetic. The total cost of diagnosed diabetes for the nation is a $245 billion in medical care and lost productivity. Prevention saves patients and the government money. During a 15-month period of the prevention program, Medicare saved $2,650 for each enrollee. Improved diagnosis and prevention programs are vitally important, but the nation is also falling behind in managing diabetes in current sufferers. Such complications as stroke, blindness and kidney failure are an especially big problem in America's minority communities. Non-Hispanic Blacks in the United States, for example, are more than twice as likely to die from diabetes as non-Hispanic Whites. To ensure diabetes patients have access to healthcare, they must also have access to quality health insurance. In too many cases, they do not. A recent survey revealed that six out of ten dia Continue reading >>

I'll have another giant lollipop, my good man. Yeah, I know all the secret menus, Bobby. Like, if you go just about anywhere and ask for a "Hugging Cow," you'll get a burger wrapped in pastrami. Dauterive, there is so much I can learn from you. Go a little slower with the junk food, Bill. Bill? Bill? Sergeant, you passed out from a blood sugar spike. Looks like you're in the early stages of adult-onset diabetes. I've eaten lots of sugar my whole life and nothing's ever happened to me. Surely you've noticed recent changes in your body: Blurred vision, frequent urination, tingling in the hands and feet? I just thought I was in love. How did this happen? Seriously? Diabetes is very common among the obese. For some people, there's even a genetic disposition Damn genes! Diabetes is a very manageable disease. If you do a better job with diet and exercise, you'll stop it from progressing. Yeah, genes! Well, they say diabetes can happen to anyone, and "anyone" usually means Bill.

You've got to start taking better care of yourself. I just lose control when I'm around food. I don't even know where this hot dog came from! You got to help me, Hank!

Your Rights, One Voice: Vaughns Story

Your Rights, One Voice: Vaughns Story

Posted on November 23, 2015 by American Diabetes Association So, in the spring of 2015, when Vaughn mother Kira got a message from camp saying he could not attend that summer, she was naturally upset. She was told, Im sorry for the bad news. We are not equipped to handle a camper with diabetes. Kira has been a paralegal for years and, with her legal background, believed that Vaughn had rights that made this situation unfair. Kira could not bring herself to tell Vaughn he couldnt go to camp especially that it was because of his diabetes. She knew Vaughn would not handle the news very well. Instead, she contacted the American Diabetes Association for help. She wrote, My son has been begging to go to camp this summer. Telling him he cant go would severely affect his self-esteem. I want him to have a normal camp experience like other kids. Thank you for any legal advice you can provide to help my son. Kira spoke with a Legal Advocate at the Association and learned that Vaughn did have legal rights. She was told that, under federal law, Vaughn should be allowed to attend camp and provide accommodations for his diabetes care. The Legal Advocate also shared resources to help Kira discuss this with the camp organizers, such as a sample letter, tips on how to speak with administrators and hints for negotiating on behalf of her son. Supplied with this information, Kira was able to achieve success. The camp reversed its policy, made changes to care for Vaughns diabetes and allowed him to attend. Kira never even told Vaughn what had happened. He just went to camp and had a great time. Things went very well and he had no medical problems at all. His diabetes should never have been an issue in the first place. I am so thankful for the American Diabetes Association. I have volunteere Continue reading >>

Diabetesaliciousness 2007 - 2018

Talk Anoungst Yourselves -"The Topic: "Dia-Bill-ic Shock" OR Diabetes "King of The Hill" Style. The greater the obstacle the more glory in overcoming it. Molire (Jean-Baptiste Poquelin), French dramatist (1622-1673) What does not destroy makes me stronger. Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher (1844-1900) Life ain't a track meet (NO) - Its a marathon My 8 days in hell are almost over!!! I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, that light being in full glory on Monday afternoon - which normally is somewhat of letdown as far as days of the week go...So I got that going for me. Anyway - Next weeks postings will be back to a normal schedule, PROMISE. OK - I have like 10 minutes to type b4 I have to start the work cram and jam again. SO, Until then, "Talk amongst yourselves!'" The topic being King Of The Hill's" season premiere - which was titled "Dia-Bill-ic Shock" & aired last Sunday night. - Did I not tell you this is week has been hellish? I've been trying to get time to write about this episode all week! Any who, here's the kicker, The show featured one of the main characters, Bill Dauterive -a melancholy character to say the least, who gives up when told he has developed type 2 - which is referred to as "adult onset diabetes" in the show. Yes, it's a cartoon - but it's a funny, and for the most part - a well written one. YES, there were some generalizations regarding the disease - aren't there always? I thought the writers did a good job on several points. They stressed diet and exercise, the importance of nutrition counseling for diabetics the importance of taking blood sugars, and depression after being diagnosed. They also showed how Dr's can be a positive part a solution, or a huge part of the problem - take special note of the Ass of a Dr. who Continue reading >>

King Of The Hill (season 13)

The thirteenth and final season of King of the Hill originally aired Sunday nights on the Fox Broadcasting Company from September 28, 2008 to September 13, 2009. [1] [2] Four episodes from this season originally premiered in syndication from May 3 to May 6, 2010. May3,2010(2010-05-03) May6,2010(2010-05-06) The showrunners for the season were John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky. [3] Beginning with the episode "Lucky See, Monkey Do", King of the Hill started being produced in 720p 16:9 high-definition . 20th Century Fox Television initially ordered 13 DABE [4] production episodes, but decided to keep the show in production for four additional episodes (DABE14DABE17). Because FOX wanted to make room for new shows on their "Animation Domination" line-up, the final six DABE episodes were cut down to two ("The Boy Can't Help It" and " To Sirloin with Love "). Both episodes aired as a special one-hour series finale on September 13, 2009. The other four unaired episodes ("The Honeymooners," "Bill Gathers Moss," "When Joseph Met Lori, and Made Out with Her in the Janitor's Closet," and "Just Another Manic Kahn-Day") did not air on FOX, but did appear in syndicated reruns and on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up, as well as appearing on streaming platforms Netflix and Amazon Prime. "To Sirloin with Love" is still considered to be the final episode of the series, despite not being the last episode to air, as it was the last episode produced and written for the series. Despite being the final season of the series, during the panel discussion for the return of Beavis and Butt-head (another Mike Judge 's TV show) at Comic-Con 2011, Judge said that although no current plans exist to revive King of the Hill , he would not rule out the possibility of it returning.

Bill Dauterive /dotriv/ (born William Fontaine de La Tour Dauterive, otherwise known as French for "William Fountain of the Tower of the High Bank"; June 22, 1957) is a fictional character on the Fox animated series King of the Hill . He is the Hills' overweight, divorced, and clinically depressed neighbor, voiced by Stephen Root and named for series producer Jim Dauterive . [1] Stephen Root used his background in Southern theater to help him develop the voice of Bill. Root attended the University of Florida , and had performed in Southern plays in New York City prior to being chosen for the role. He originally auditioned for the role of Dale Gribble , which "didn't feel right" so he then auditioned for Bill. [2] Bill is indicated as coming from an upper-class Cajun family in Louisiana (the family lived on a vast estate called the Chateau D'Haute Rive ("castle on the high bank") until his cousin Gilbert was forced to sell it). He speaks fluent Cajun French and plays the accordion skillfully, which surprises him just as much as it does everyone else.

Remembering Gerald Reaven

Remembering Gerald Reaven

The American Diabetes Association notes with sadness the passing of Gerald Jerry Reaven, MD, whose pioneering work in insulin resistance provides critical components of our current understanding of the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes. In 1988 Dr. Reaven received ADAs highest scientific honor, the Banting Medal, and in his Banting Address he laid out his argument for the existence of Syndrome X, now commonly known as metabolic syndrome. A prolific scientist and generous mentor, he will be greatly missed by colleagues around the world. ADA President, Medicine & Science, Jane Reusch, MD, remembers Dr. Reaven: "He was the classic gentleman, scholar, mentor and scientist. It is with gratitude that we once again celebrate his life and his scientific contributions at the time of his parting. His creativity, rigor and energy over a lifetime inspired research that has bent the curve to improve the lives of all people with diabetes. Personally, Jerry took an interest in my young career and was often available to look over grants and manuscripts. On behalf of the ADA we honor his contributions and wish his family all the best." To learn more about Dr. Reavens accomplishments and contributions to diabetes research and treatment, we encourage readers to access the Profile in Progressin the May 2014 issue of Diabetes Care, Gerald M. Reaven, MD: Demonstration of the Central Role of Insulin Resistance in Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease , which was authored by Fredric B. Kraemer and Henry N. Ginsberg.

Telemedicine And Diabetes Care

Telemedicine And Diabetes Care

Telemedicine is looking to radically change your doctor visits At 300 pounds, Chris Burke knew he needed to lose weight. Hed been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2005 and promptly did everything his doctors asked of him. Initially, that meant following a diet and exercise regimen, along with taking daily doses of metformin. Eventuallyas his condition worsened and he became insulin deficientthat meant giving himself injections of insulin up to seven times a day. But his blood glucose levels remained dangerously high. After two years of trying to manage his diabetes, he was up to 425 pounds and his blood glucose levels were three times the norm. In 2007, he was hospitalized with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a life-threatening condition in which extreme high blood glucose, along with a severe lack of insulin, results in a toxic buildup of blood acids known as ketones. No one could figure out why I wasnt responding to the medication even though I was doing everything I was supposed to, says Burke, 35, who lives with his wife and four children in the tiny town of Portales, New Mexico. In 2014, he had all but given up when a nurse at the local clinic where he received medical care told him about a team of specialists in Albuquerque who focused their efforts on treating stubborn cases of diabetes like his. But Burke, who didnt have a car, had no way of making the 3-hour trip to Albuquerque. He didnt need to, the nurse explained. He would receive care by way of telemedicine. Once a week, Burkes primary care doctor would consult a team of diabetes specialists at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine through videoconferencing and then apply their recommendations during Burkes regular appointments in Portales. Figuring he had nothing to lose, Burke agreed to give it a Continue reading >>

Diabetes Features On

Diabetes Features On "king Of The Hill" Episode

Diabetes features on "King of the Hill" episode Diabetes features on "King of the Hill" episode Did anyone else see the "King of the Hill" episode Sunday night? Bill, one of the characters, was diagnosed with Type 2 after passing out a couple times from highs. The episode left me with mixed feelings. It had a doctor who gave him very harsh words and convinced Bill that he would lose his legs--so he prescribed a wheelchair for Bill and told him to get used to using it. Bill went and bought a wheelchair and began to use it. He then became very active in wheelchair sports, lost some weight, gained some muscle, and his Diabetes "went away." Now, yes, I know Diabetes doesn't just "go away" like that but the issue of the doctor having no hope that Bill would/could change to manage his Diabetes, the callous attitude of Bill towards his Diabetes originally, then getting active, not "being Diabetic" anymore--well, there were some good messages and some confusing ones in there. It showed that yes, some docs give up on us too quickly. And that Diabetes is not a death sentence. And, that we can take control of our Diabetes and our lives. But I think it also gave a feeling that all Diabetics want to blame "genes" and that all we need to do is to "get healthy" and "it" will go away and we can be "normal" again. They even had him testing and showing, at the end, his meter reading simply "Normal." Overall though--I thought it was good. And, I think it was interesting that a show would highlight Diabetes and it's problems like that. I really hope they continue to have Bill and his Diabetic issues occasionally and not just drop that story line. It would be great to have a show with a character learning to live as a Diabetic. I'm a big "King of the Hill" fan, by the way. Friend Type 1 fo Continue reading >>

The following is a list of quotes from the thirteenth season King of the Hill Hank: Dr. Weissman, my friend Bill would like to register a complaint. Dr. Weissman: Ohh, are you upset or something? I said you had diabetes, not cry-a-betes. Bill: You told me I was going to lose my legs! Dr. Weissman: No, I said your legs could fail one day, possibly. I-I never said anything that could constitute malpractice, other it's current definition. Bill: Hmm, my legs work just fine. Isn't that inspiring! (Bill closes the door and starts beating up Dr. Weissman) Hank: (to nurse) Uh, my friend is just, uh... Hank: About that science teacher of yours, does he ever talk about, uh, going green? Bobby: I don't know. Do you ever talk about propane? My point is, he talks about all the time. Ted Wassanasong: This was no act of God; look at those sledgehammer marks! It was the act of rednecks, on a drunken rampage. Dale: (After they rebuild neighbor's house) We should do this to Bill's house when he dies. Bill: What a nice lady. We used to talk about puppies and serial killers through the fence. Lucky: I've seen a lot of nature documentaries and I find that most of life's questions can be answered with another question: what would a monkey do?
