Additional Cast


Boomhauer is thrown for a loop when he discovers that his brother Patch is getting married to the love of Boomhauer's life, Katherine. Boomhauer's feelings for Katherine resurface as the nuptials grow closer as does his growing annoyance with his brother's immature behavior.

Meanwhile, Hank encourages Boomhauer to put aside his feelings and act like a best man should. When tension reaches a boiling point, Boomhauer drops out as best man and Hank takes his place. Hank plans a bachelor party that is more tame than Patch envisioned, he hires strippers himself. When Boomhauer shows up at the bachelor party to make amends, Hank assumes he is the one who hired the strippers and accuses him of trying to sabotage the wedding, while Katherine considers it a romantic gesture.

Worried that he may lose Katherine now, Patch admits to hiring the strippers. Coming from Patch, Katherine considers the gesture sleazy and decides to call the wedding off. She leaves Arlen, but not before letting Boomhauer know that she does have feelings for him.
