Lucky See, Monkey Do is the 8th episode of the 13th season of King of the Hill and features the birth of Luanne's child.
When Peggy plans a baby shower for Luanne, Lucky invites his sister Myrna and her children to the party. Myrna has conflicting parenting information to give Luanne, and is described by Peggy as a "modern mother". Myrna later decorates the baby's room and makes it look (according to Peggy) "depressing" and "creepy". Myrna suggests to Luanne to birth the baby "naturally" at home with little assistance so the baby is born into a better environment, while Peggy argues to have the baby at a hospital, specifically under the heavy influence of pain killers. Luanne then attends Childbirth classes along with Peggy and Myrna. Peggy stated that she relieved Bobby's teething by applying scotch on his gums. The other people found this preposterous making Luanne trust Myrna more. After a scuffle between Myrna and Peggy on where to birth the baby, Luanne decides to do it "her way" and take Peggy's advice about going to the hospital to give birth. When Luanne and Lucky's baby is born, they first wanted to name her Lasagna (Luanne under the influence of the drugs and Lucky most likely wanting to make his wife happy or take advantage of her state). Hank immediately made an objection, and Peggy assured him she would handle it, leading to the name Gracie being given. Her full name being Gracie Margaret Kleinschmidt, Peggy’s real name being Margaret.Meanwhile, Bill has fallen in love with the voice at the Want-A-Burger drive-through. When he discovers that the voice doesn't belong to someone on-site but that "Jane" works out of a call center in Arizona, he drives out there to meet her, only to discover that Jane is a seventeen-year-old. The age difference cools whatever ardor they had for each other.
