"It's a marvelous night for a moon dance..."
Hank, Boomhauer, Bill and Dale all decide to take a weekend trip to Austin for Bill's birthday. While they're away, Peggy and Bobby attend Luanne's barbecue and get their first taste of real charbroiled burgers. Living off propane for so long, they finally realize what they've been missing.
Back in Austin, Hank is being harassed for being the "party pooper." So when all four decide to moon the lobby of the hotel, Hank is the only one who does, and winds up mooning former Texas Governor Ann Richards. Fearing hotel expulsion, Bill decides to take the fall for Hank and meet with the governor. Instead of a reprimand, Bill gets a date and love blossoms between him and Ann.
Bill and ex-Governor Richards begin making headlines, which inevitably attracts the attention of Bill's ex-wife, Lenore. When Lenore returns, Bill foolishly falls for her again and tries to hide it from Ann. Bill finally comes to his senses when he realizes that Lenore only wanted him back when he became famous for dating the ex-governor. He finally dumps Lenore, but Ann decides not to take him back. Fortunately for Bill, Ann agrees to help him seek retribution and the two become good friends.
