  • Fans thought that this episode was non-canon, due to hints that the Farmer attempts to kill Beavis.

[Beavis and Butt-Head are watching an advertisement for milk on TV.]

Actor: Carrie Robertson's a milk drinker. She gots a lot of attention. [Shot of her sitting under a tree.] From me, she's gets total attention.

Beavis: She's hot!

Butt-Head: [He looks down to see he has an erection.] I think I'm "at attention". [He starts to laugh.]

Actor: Carrie Robertson's got a restraining order against me, but I'm drinking milk. So I know some day, she'll come back.

Beavis: I hate milk!

Butt-Head: Milk sucks!

[The scene cuts to a woman milking a cow. Beavis and Butt-Head are staring in awe as the commercial ends.]

Narrator: Milk: It's not bad! Brought to you by your local dairy association.

Butt-Head: Hey, Beavis. I heard that if you, like, tip a cow over when it's sleeping, cool stuff happens.

Beavis: Oh, yeah! Umm, like what?

Butt-Head: Uhh, it falls over.

Beavis: Cool! We're there, dude! [They start doing air guitar to the theme of "Green Acres".]

[Later that night, they go to a local ranch outside of Highland. A sign reads "HORSE RANCH, NO TRESPASSING. VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED."]

Butt-Head: [He tries to read the sign.] Uhh... Hors... Whores! Uhh... Prosti- Prostitutes?! Hey, Beavis! They have whores and prostitutes here!

Beavis: Cool! Maybe after we get done tipping the cows over, we should, like, go look at them and stuff.

Butt-Head: You don't just look at them, ass-munch! You, like, look at them naked.

[The two climb through the fence and go look for cows. They come across a horse eating hay.]

Butt-Head: There's one.

Beavis: TIP! TIP! TIP!! TIP!! FALL OVER!!!

Butt-Head: Settle down, Beavis! You're having a cow. [They walk over to the horse and get behind it.] Hey, Beavis. Pull it's tail.

Beavis: No way!

Butt-Head: Maybe milk will come out of its butt.

Beavis: Yeah, chocolate milk!

Butt-Head: Yeah! [They start to laugh and pull it's tail. The horse kicks the two between their legs and send them flying into a pile of horse poop.] Ow! That sucked!

[Later on, Beavis and Butt-Head continue looking for cows to tip.]

Beavis: Getting kicked in the nads by that cow sucked!

Butt-Head: I don't think that was a cow, dude. I think that was, like, a deer.

Beavis: How do you know?

Butt-Head: It didn't have those fingers.

Beavis: What fingers?

Butt-Head: You know, those fingers by the cow's butt that you squeeze to get, like, milk and stuff.

Beavis: Oh yeah! Hey, Butt-Head. Squeeze my finger.

Butt-Head: Which one, Beavis? The finger by your butt?

Beavis: Yeah, pull that one!

Butt-Head: [Starts singing.] Old McDonald had a farm, E... uhh, I, uhh... Z... Is there, like, a Q in there?

Beavis: Yeah. [Sings as well] E - I - Q, uhh, Z... M!

[Soon enough, they finally find a cow. They stare at its udder and start laughing.]

Beavis: This one's ok.

Butt-Head: Ok, Beavis. You get down behind him, and I'll push him over you. This is gonna be cool. [Beavis gets behind the cow.] Ready, dude?

Beavis: Yeah! Go for it! [Butt-Head runs and pushes the cow on top of Beavis, Beavis screams in pain as the cow falls on him.] GET IT OFF ME, BUTT-HEAD!! COME ON, HELP!!

Butt-Head: [He start laughing.] You're touching it's butt!


Butt-Head: Get off him, ass-wipe! [He starts kicking the cow, unknown that the farmer is watching them from behind.]

Farmer: Uhh, what are you boys doing with my cow?!

Butt-Head: Uhh, your cow's, like, broken, sir.


Farmer: Well, the poor dumb creature was born and bred for slaughter. So I's reckon there ain't no harm done in accelerating it's departure from God's earth. Let me get my chainsaw.

Butt-Head: This is gonna be cool!

Farmer: Oh yeah! [He starts laughing as he goes to get his chainsaw.] Well, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. [He fires up the chainsaw.] Better stand aside, boy! This liable to get messy! [He begins to lower the chainsaw towards Beavis' head.]

Beavis: AHHH!!! NOT ME!!! THE COW!!!

[The scene fades to black, with the sound of the farmer laughing still being heard.]
