Boomhauer's friends seem to consider him a source of good advice.
Although considered something of a playboy by his neighbors, in I'm With Cupid, Bobby discovers that Boomhauer’s secret weapon for attracting women is merely barraging women until one finally agrees to go out with him. When his ex-girlfriend Katherine left him and went off to college, Boomhauer spent two days sitting in his hot tub.
Peggy said she has never seen a man so sad and so relaxed than when Boomhauer was nursing a broken heart.
When he meets a jogger whom Bill lusts after, he spent many days (and nights) with her, before he got up the courage to ask her to marry him, offering Meemaw's ring.
Jeffrey "Wheels" Dexter Boomhauer III, nearly always referred to simply as "Boomhauer," is a friend of the Hill family and hangs out in the alley with Dale, Bill, and Hank, drinking beer.
He is famous for his rapid, muddled speech pattern, most of which is nearly incomprehensible.
It appears to be genetic, as his grandmother, brother, and other members of the Boomhauer family speak the same way.
He also peppers his speech with lots of "dang ol's" and "dadgums," often punctuating clauses with "man." It is revealed in "A Fire Fighting We Will Go" that Boomhauer actually sees himself as speaking clearly with everyone else speaking with his trademark speech pattern.
Boomhauer is a Texas Ranger, and is a confirmed bachelor with a taste for fast cars, women, and tiger-print bikini underwear. In high school, he had an infamous mid-60s Mustang named "Ms.
Sally," but had to get a new car after Hank, Bill, and Dale accidentally drove it into a quarry while playing a prank on him.
While attending high school with the three others, he played on the football team as the starting quarterback.
His idol is Wilt Chamberlain (probably for both his athletic prowess and for his famous luck with women), and he is allergic to macadamia nuts.
