The Father, the Son and J.C.
I'm With Cupid

Father of the Bribe is the one hundred-ninth episode of King of the Hill. It was first aired on January 6, 2002. The episode was written by Dean Young, and directed by Cyndi Tang-Loveland.


Kahn tries to bribe Bobby to break up with Connie. Connie and Bobby decide to pretend to break up so they can get the money. Connie then acts as if breaking up with Bobby has caused her mental distress. When a schoolteacher thinks Connie may be depressed and suicidal, her parents try to push her and Bobby back together. After endless double dates with the parents, they become tired of each other, and decide to break up for real, to Kahn's horror.

Meanwhile, Dale hosts a very low-power pirated radio show, that runs for 24 hours a day every day. It focused on conspiracy theories, and it did not do very well. There was one scene where Dale said that we was stranded behind this f*ckin mic all day, but it was censored. Eventually, citing criticism from his sponsors (of which there is only one, "Dale's Dead Bug"), Dale sells the radio station to Octavio who changes the format to Norteno -- TexMex music with a heavy polka influence.


  • This episode marks the end of Connie and Bobby's relationship which had previously begun in the season 3 episode: Take Me Out of the Ballgame.
