The Honeymooners" is the 1st episode of the post-thirteenth season of King of the Hill and 256th overall. This episode was the first of the four unaired episodes to air in syndication on local stations on May 3, 2010. It later aired on Adult Swim on May 17, 2010. It is also the first King of the Hill episode to not air on Fox Broadcasting Company.

In the episode, Hank is shocked when his mother announces she is marrying a man she has only known for a few weeks. Soon after, the newlyweds celebrate by purchasing an RV and heading to Hank's. When Hank's mom and new stepfather have a heated argument, she takes off with the RV and Hank is left to rescue his mother once again. It was written by Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh, and directed by Tricia Garcia.

Plot

Hank decides to call and check up on his mother and discovers that she is preparing to get married. He is happy because he thinks she's marrying her longtime boyfriend Gary, but Tilly says that she has a new boyfriend named Chuck Garrison and he's going to be her husband. Hank, Bobby, and Peggy travel to Arizona for the wedding. They then meet Chuck, a retired hardware store-chain owner who Hank is initially curt towards, before cutting him some slack. After the wedding, Tilly and Chuck show up at Hank's in a new RV, announcing they have sold their condos and plan to spend the rest of their lives traveling the open road. While having dinner with the Hills in the RV, Chuck and Tilly have a fight (mainly about Tilly's erratic driving). Hank believes that Chuck is causing problems, but learns that it's Tilly who is completely reckless.

The next morning, Tilly leaves in the RV. Hank, Chuck, BoomhauerBill, and Dale leave to look for her. Tilly stops at a diner en route to see wildflowers ignoring flash flood warnings on the way. Hank and Chuck find the diner and find out from the diner waitress where Tilly has gone. Leaving Bill, Dale, and Boomhauer at the diner, Hank and Chuck go to find Tilly and get stuck in a ditch in the process. Tilly suddenly appears and helps pull Hank's truck out of the ditch. Hank proclaims that he thinks his mom is an idiot for the stupid decisions she has made for the last thirty years, marrying Cotton (Hank's father), dating Chuck before breaking up with Gary, and marrying him after just meeting him. She is originally shocked, but then explains to Hank that even though he may think she is an idiot, she can do things on her own, wanting to live life to the fullest before she dies. After she and Chuck make up, Hank sincerely tells Chuck that Tilly's marrying him was a smart decision and they shake hands. Tilly and Chuck then drive off, presumably to the Mark Twain Festival in Sulphur Springs, Texas, but they don't uncouple Hank's truck and leave him annoyed and stranded in a driving rainstorm.

Dale mentions that RVs are a one way ticket to meth addiction. This could very likely be a reference to the TV show Breaking Bad. (This episode came out in 2010, while Breaking Bad's run was from January 20, 2008 – September 29, 2013).
