* [[Bill Dauterive|Sgt. William "Bill" Fontaine Delatour Dauterive]] (voiced by [[Stephen Root]]) — Bill is the Hills' overweight, divorced, [[clinically depressed]], [[involuntary celibacy|involuntarily celibate]] neighbor. He grew up in [[Louisiana]] with his cousin Gilbert and speaks French and English. He was formerly a rugged and attractive star lineman on Arlen High's football team, nicknamed the "Billdozer", and is now a sergeant barber in the [[United States Army]]. Bill once had a bright future in the Army, but ended up ruining his life after marrying the promiscuous Lenore. Bill is somewhat of a and is often attracted to people who abuse him; after suffering under his father and Lenore, Bill has an almost complete lack of self-worth. He obsesses about his ex-wife, and his loneliness is a running gag on the series. He frequently tries to flirt with and woo Peggy. Despite coming across as a loser, however, Bill has enjoyed several romantic successes (or near-successes), including Kahn's and Luanne's mothers, former Texas governor [[Ann Richards]], and the young widows of two of his dead cousins. He is named after executive producer and writer Jim Dauterive.
