Re: Married With Children - Episode by Episode Guide and Discussion

Season 3, Episode 21: Life's a Beach





Synopsis: Seeking just a tad more family togetherness, Al declares "Bundy Day at the Beach," where he wants a family photo taken. At the beach, Bud and Kelly compete to find new flames, while an old flame finds Al. Steve and Marcy are also around, with Marcy ogling all the young guys.



8/10: This is a great one. I laughed like drains when both Peggy and Kelly suddenly smelled something different in the house, and literally sniffed out the money left by the Rhodes's in an envelope. Also Marcy letching at the young guys is always a hoot...plus the standard jokes about Marcy being a chicken are here (some classic lines about that).





Dialogue:
------------------------------------------------
Kelly: Mom, we've given up on getting food and guidance, but we need money.
------------------------------------------------
Marcy: It's a little tradition we have. On the first sunny day in May we go to the beach to shake hands with Mr. Summer.
Peggy: Our little summer tradition is watching Al sweat through his pants onto Mr. Couch.
Steve: Well, you're lucky Al. For you, every day can be Summer.
------------------------------------------------
Peggy: Well honey, take a picture of me so you can remember me, when I was beautiful.

Al: What, you're gonna get worse?
------------------------------------------------
Steve: We didn't come here to throw our happiness in your face. Actually, we came here to see if you could do me a favor.
Al: What? Grab one of your wife's legs and make a wish.

Re: Married With Children - Episode by Episode Guide and Discussion

oh I forgot my favourite line from Al!

FAT LADY, SUNBATHING: Hey, you're in my sun. I'm trying to get an all over tan.
AL: You're asking a lot of the sun.

Al in action

Last week I watched a rerun and Peg was in classic form.

"Whaddya mean Al? I do lots of things for you. Don't you remember? I put the bullseye on the toilet for you."

Any episode with Kelly in a bikini deserves bonus points IMO

Re: Married With Children - Episode by Episode Guide and Discussion

Season 3, Episode 22: Here's lookin at you, kid




Synopsis: There's a neighbourhood Peeping Tom, who has spied on all the women...except Peggy. The women are on the warpath to get the peeper, but Peggy feels distinctly unattractive. Al steps up - a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do - but after 5 days in a row, he's sick of it, and decide something has to be done...



7/10 A pretty good one, with Peggy modelling all sorts of nightwear to try and attract the attentions of the peeper (as well as leaving out a ladder, milk and cookies), to no avail. A sideplot where Bud has to tutor Kelly so she can become a senior that's also pretty hilarious.


Dialogue
------------------------------
Peggy (while tugging at Al as he clings to a couch): I deserve a beautiful expression of our love, you slug, and I'm going to have it.

------------------------------
Steve: Al, I got a problem. This peeping tom thing is ruining my marriage. Marcy is so upset, she doesn't let me have sex with her for five days.
Al: Well, it could be worse. I've had sex with mine for five straight days.
------------------------------
Peggy: Tell me the truth. I'm loosing my looks, aren't I?
Al: Nooo.
Peggy: Oh, you're just saying that cause you know that's what I wanna hear. Now tell me the truth. Am I loosing my looks?
Al: Yes.
Peggy: You pig. You know I'm down. The least you can do is lie.
------------------------------
Marcy: Oh Steve, I was peeped. It was awful. He saw me in all my nakedness.
Steve: Ah, what did he see honey? Did he see your jimmies?
Marcy: He saw it all Steve.
Al: Marcy, did they find this guy passed out in the bushes, still twitching from fear?

I was wondering what was going on in your avatar. This episode sounds great. I will have to make some time to watch it.

Katy, catch the one before it too (about the beach), it has a classic Al/fat lady scene.

Re: Married With Children - Episode by Episode Guide and Discussion

Season 4, Episode 1: Hot Off the Grill



Synopsis: Al decides that Labor Day will be celebrated by a Bundy BBQ, whilst the rest of the family want to do something nice. But, as Al says, Labor Day is for working men, not leeches, so he gets final say. Meanwhile Marcy is nursing the ashes of her dead aunt, still grieving, and insists on taking them out for the day.

Al insists the barbeque grill and ash not be cleaned, because that's what gives the Bundy burger its flavour, but whilst cleaning it, Peg spills all the ashes. she recruits Bud and Kelly to find ashes to replace the ones she's spilt...



8/10: This is a great one, with Al getting his own way. Also, every time he sees Peg working or getting miserable, he gets horny and drags her up stairs. 4 TIMES. She's crying by the end of it. There's also some great comic scenes, with Al donning his special BBQ gear while 'bad to the bone' plays, his tossing Steve's specially brought salmon over the fence become 'no fish will ever touch my grill', but the real laugh is Peg getting mortified with the horny Al. I laughed like drains. His dragging her off is priceless.




Dialogue:
------------------
Bud: The holiday got you down, Kel? Well, lets just pretend it's a normal day. Get up on the table, dance around and me and mom will put dollars down your blouse.
Peggy: Now Bud, not everything Reverend Felcher says from the
pulpit is true.
------------------
Marcy: Oh Peggy, I don't know what to do. Steve is an unfeeling cur. As you know, my sainted aunt Toonie passed away.
Steve: Sainted my foot, she used to pay for sailors.
Marcy: She was 67 and they wouldn't come for free.
------------------
Kelly: I can't wait 'til I have kids, so I can make them suffer.
Bud: And if they ask who their dad is, you can play wheel of father.
------------------
(Peg is smoking three cigarettes at once to make ash)
Bud: She's turning into Grandma before our very eyes.

Re: Married With Children - Episode by Episode Guide and Discussion

I think that was the first episode with Bad to the Bone used as Al's theme song of sorts?

The look on Steve's face when he finds out the news about the ashes is priceless. Really shows the development of his character.

Not sure, it could well be the first time it's used.

And Steve's face... yes it's priceless. Here it is

Re: Married With Children - Episode by Episode Guide and Discussion

Season 4, Episode 2: Dead Men Don't Do Aerobics

Synopsis: Peggy wins a competition where the healthiest mand in Chicago, Jim Jupiter, stays for 2 weeks to make her healthier. Instead, Peg manages to get him to live a Bundy lifestyle, and he drops dead.


6.5/10 - Plenty of good moments, especially when Al sees what's going on, and he gives a great little speech at the end explaining why Jim can't survive whilst the Bundy's - and cockroaches - will. The show ends with the caption 'This show is dedicated to our brother the mighty cockroach. Let him show us the way.'



Dialogue:
---------------------------------
Peg: Mmm, look at that sweat glistening offa Jim Jupiter's arms. [to the TV] Come on baby, Mama wants a salt lick.
MARCY: I wouldn't mind being the first woman on Jupiter. Not that Steve is anything to laugh at.
(Marcy and Peggy look at each other, then burst out laughing.)
Peg: It does seem odd, doesn't it? I mean, Al and Steve look nothing like Jim and yet they're all lumped together as 'men'.
MARCY: Well, let's not be hasty. Men like Jim Jupiter may not be all they're cracked up to be. Take away his biceps, triceps, quadriceps, washboard stomach, and what have you got?
(Al comes home from work all sweaty, with his shirt and tie undone.)
Al: Whoa! No more tacos at lunch for me.
---------------------------------
Peg: OK Jim, bend me, shape me, any way you want me.
Jim: Well, you've got a good, healthy attitude about exercise. I guess we could start with some warm-ups. Get down on all fours.
(Peggy smiles excitedly.)
Peg: Ruff!
---------------------------------
(Al has just caught Peg on all fours with Jim behind her)
Jim (offering hand): I'm Jim Jupiter, the healthiest man in Chicago.
Al: Then you should heal quick when I pull your spine through your mouth.
--------------------------------
Peg: Look, there are two things that Peggy Bundy does not do. Number one: cook, clean, swew, iron, vacuum, and parent. Number two: is exercise.
---------------------------------
Al: Now, Peg, I know you think you're responsible for killing Jim. And yet you have no guilt of squashing the life out of me, but that's another meeting. Anyway, what I'm saying is, you didn't kill Jim. Good health killed Jim. See, he purified his body so completely, that when finally called on to do so, he couldn't handle the grease and sugar and toxic waste that we call food. He rendered himself extinct. See, healthy people are like dinosaurs. They're not fit to survive. Jim's body couldn't handle the burgers and bonbons and pastry suckin's like real Americans. You see, Peg, WE are the truly strong...see that cockroach over there?...Let's follow the example of our friend the cockroach. They were here before man, they'll be here after man. You know why? They eat crap. And I say, if it's good enough for the cockroach, then it's good enough for my family!

Lovely bit of postmodern intertexuality here, DB. The Reverend Felcher was what Archie Bunker called Reverend Fletcher. When he was corrected, Archie responded with "Whatever." At the end of the episode, the Reverend calls Archie "Mr. Binker" and when Archie corrects him, the Reverend, of course, says. "Whatever." (Sorry for the digression.)

Lol didn't know that. Of course I know who Archie Bunker is and his significance in American culture (we have our own, earlier version called Alf Garnett who was the inspiration for Archie), but I've never seen a single episode of it.
