Luanne comes indoors, sobbing because she got a splinter on her thumb. Hank pulls out the splinter, but Luanne is still upset.
Just then, Hank, who cannot stand Luanne crying, screams "WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU BLUBBERING ALL THE TIME YOU BIG BABY?!? I CAN'T FUCKING HEAR MYSELF THINK WITH ALL THAT GODDAMN RACKET!!!!!!!!!"
Luanne runs to her room weeping and slams the door so hard she breaks off the hinges. Hank sits down on his Recline-o-Mite and tries to calm down. Just then, the crying gets in his head, and he decides that this is the last straw. He drags the wailing Luanne out of the house but not before she stumbles towards a gang of hoodlums who kick her senseless.
Afterwards, Peggy arrives back home from a long, tiring supply teachers' convention and discovers the bruised body of Luanne snivelling on the sidewalk.
Hank apologises to Luanne and the friendship is rekindled.
