Hank is persuaded to see a doctor. He goes to the Heimlich County Medical Center, according to the outside sign seen on the screen shot. Later, when he is told to fill out a form, the top of the paper clearly says Hillview Hospital, which is not said on any sign outside of the hospital. See more »

The one where Hank doesn't really give a sh......
27 March 2006 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Hank is strongly embarrassed that everyone knows about his constipation problem leading to some pretty humorous situations and touching in a way actually. With the hospital scene, in my humble opinion, as the funniest part of this episode. And pretty true to life as well. Hell Peggy's even tolerable in this one, which is always a nice (although VERY rare) surprise.

The DVD box set of the first season has 4 deleted scenes, one deleted scene in animatic, & Commentary by Co-creator Greg Daniels for this episode.

My Grade: B+
