When NHRA driver John Force needs an organ transplant, Dale is the only one who can save him. Hank encourages Dale to ignore his fear of hospitals and give up his kidney to save Force. Dale reluctantly agrees, but only if Hank takes his place being Dale for the day, a task that consists of outlandish duties.


  • When Dale is mumbling to himself while anesthetized he says, "Nancy, what's Redcorn doing in our shower?" indicating that at least at a subconscious level, Dale suspects something is going on between Nancy and John Redcorn.
