A Tisket A Tasket, Can Peg Make A Basket [8.1]Edit

[Peg misses the $10,000 free throw.]
Al: Aw, now, Peg. You gave it your best shot.
Peg: You mean you're not disappointed, Al?
Al: Disappointed, Peg? It's the only way it could be. I wanted it, I needed it, I deserved it. How else could it have turned out?
Peg: So it's your fault?
Al: From the minute I said "I do."

Hood N' The Boys [8.2]Edit

Proud To Be Your Bud [8.3]Edit

Whisper: [Al sits int he basement, head in his hands] If you build it he will come. If you want them to build it for you, Press 1.

Luck Of The Bundys [8.4]Edit

Al: See, till now, Peg, I always thought horoscopes were a load of hooey; but now that I hear "good luck's a comin," I realize that they're based on hard scientific data.

Al: Having only one kid around the house is like having only one noose around your neck.

Banking On Marcy [8.5]Edit

Marcy: The last time I saw this many people in a bank, I closed my windows and went to lunch.

Marcy: You know, Al. You can skip the long lines on payday, because the hot dog vendor outside always has change for a dollar.

Al: Marcy, why are you here?
Marcy: I want to talk with Peggy, privately.
Al: No. Why are you here on Earth?

Al: It doesn't work any more, Peg.
Peg: What doesn't work?
Al: It.
Peg: How can you tell?
Al: I've been reading Playboy, Biguns, Littluns, Inbetweenuns — nothing. Then I remembered it hasn't worked since the afternoon I saw Marcy do that horrible thing at the bank meeting. Marcy killed it Peg. You made it sick, but Marcy killed it.

Marcy: Peggy, guess what happened at work today.
Al: A hold-up man gave you his mask to wear?
Marcy: Turn that disgusting thing off [Changes the channel on Al's TV] Here, watch this. Steel Magnolias
Al: What's Boris Karloff doing in a dress?
Marcy: That's Shirley MacLaine, you baco-bit.
Al: Well, I owe Boris an apology.
Marcy: You owe everything an apology

(Marcy is giving a presentation at the bank and is almost close to climaxing)
Marcy: OH JEFFERSON! OH STEVE! OH JAMAL!

No Chicken, No Check [8.6]Edit

Al: Peg, would you like a BMW?
Peg: Well, I kinda see myself in a Jaguar.
Al: If only we could find one that hungry.

Al: Let me tell you a little something about sharing: don't do it. It can only lead to trouble. Your mother and I shared a bed; nothing good came out of it.
Peg: Well, maybe that's because nothing good went into it.

Take my Wife, Please [8.7]Edit

Peg: Now Mr. Grover over here, he doesn't believe in Halloween. So I say we ring his doorbell over and over again anyhow.
Bud: Well, how come?
Peg: He's a Jehovah's Witness and I just want him to know what it feels like for a change.

Al: Okay. Well, maybe I have called death once, twice or a hundred times. But it's just something you say but you don't mean — you know, like "How ya doing?" or "I love you."

(After Al discovers that the Grim Reaper looks like Peg [actually, Katey Sagal without her red wig])

Al: Of course!
Grim Reaper: Oh, this? I have the power to appear as anyone. I can be your worst nightmare. I can be your wildest fantasy. I can be my worst nightmare. But, then again, why would I want to go around looking like Sally Struthers?

Scared Single [8.8]Edit

Al: Al Bundy, all class, all the time.
Aaron: Wait a second: Al Bundy, the All-State Al Bundy?
Al: I was.
Aaron: I thought you died in Vietnam.
Al: Well, uh, actually, I, uh, started that rumour. See, truth be told, I died here at home, victim of Agent Red.

NO MA'AM [8.9]Edit

Al: Now listen here, Jerry. Bowling is a man's sport. If God had wanted women to bowl, he'd have put breasts on their backs to give us something to watch till it was our turn.
Jerry: And where are you calling from, sir? 1952?
(Marcy laughs at Al)
Al: I wish. Ike was in the White House, women were in the kitchen, and you were in the closet.

Al: It's not the dress that makes you look fat, it's the fat that makes you look fat!

Marcy: Al Bundy! Take off your mask...and let the world see your snout!

Marcy: OK, I admit it. There are times I do need a man in my life. Oh, gentlemen?
[Chicago Police enter and arrest all the men.]
Officer Dan: You again, Bundy?
Al: Where were you last week when I got mugged outside of my store?
Officer Dan: Where were you last week when I got mugged outside of your store?

Officer Dan: Say... aren't you Jerry Springer, the "Masculine Feminist"?
Jerry Springer: Yes, I am.
Officer Dan: Tie him back up! (a patrolman does so) I hate that guy.

(Al welcomes Bubbles Double D, a brunette bimbo)

Al: Miss D, you are a working woman. What are your feelings about Roe v. Wade?
Bimbo: Gosh, I don't know that much about boxing! But I do know my job is to take the winner out to dinner!

Dances With Weezy [8.10]Edit

Peggy: Al, you never listened to me.
Al: Well, why would I? I've got a TV.
Peggy: I know. It's the only thing you've turned on in twenty years!
Al: Well, if you came with a remote and mute button, I might turn you on too every now and then.

(Al and Jefferson have snuck out on their wives at the theatre, leaving a disguised Bud and Kelly in their places)
Kelly: This is the lowest thing I've ever done. (Bud looks at her skeptically) Okay, the lowest thing I've ever been paid to do. (Bud looks at her even more skeptically) Okay, the lowest thing I've been paid to do that I didn't enjoy. (Bud nods in acceptance)

Change For A Buck [8.11]Edit

A Little Off The Top [8.12]Edit

Doctor: This was one of those unfortunate accidents due to simple human error. It seems our surgical team misread your doctor's instructions; it said to give him a circular incision.
Peg: Yeah, so how could you misread that?
Doctor: We gave him a circumcision.

Marcy: Hey, Stubby, we heard about what happened, so we got you a card.
Jefferson: I talked her out of the "Ask me about me circumcision" bumper sticker.
Marcy: [reading from the card]
We heard about your little loss.
We know you'll make it through,
Because thankfully the part they took
Was of no use to you.
And though they took more than you'd like,
The good luck is, you see,
Another quarter inch would have been
A full lobotomy.

Al: [Al takes off trench coat to reveal a floral print muumuu] What?
Kelly: How much did they cut off, Daddy?

Peg: Well Mr. Grumpy's home.
Al: (in a trench coat) Just one word of warning: Anyone who says what's up, goes down. It wasn't funny when the doctor asked it. It wasn't funny when the nurse asked it and it certainly wasn't funny when your mother asked it.
Peg: Then again, I've been asking for years.
[Bud appears from the basement.]
Al: Is that you son?
Bud: Yeah dad. What's up?
Al: (decks Bud) Any other questions?

Jefferson: Relax Al. You are not the only man to go through this. I was circumcised too.
Al: Really? How did you deal with the pain?
Jefferson: Hard to remember. I was one day old when they did it to me.

Al needs to avoid erections for thirty days. He is watching TV, channel surfing
Announcer #1: Coming up next, modeling next year's line of thong bikinis!
Al{talking to himself}: Oh man! Try something else!
Announcer #2: We now take you to Cirque de Soleil, known for elaborate stunts, and of course those limber French contortionists in tiny leotards!
Al: AUGH! Why did they to do that now?! OK, third time should be something dry.
Announcer #3: National Geographic presents...
Al: Perfect!
Announcer #3: ...a documentary on Brazil, a country famous for its rain forests, cultural diversity, carnivals, and of course, invented the thong bikini!
Al shuts off TV in disgust

The Worst Noel [8.13]Edit

Peg: Al, guess what I got?
Al: You got a Christmas present for me?
Peg: Uh, no, but I could go back out again. Do you got any money?
Al: Well, I was saving up for a bullet.

TV Announcer: For those of you who missed the first 53 airings, NBC is proud to present Cheers, the final episode.
Peg: What does Cheers have to do with Christmas?
Al: What does NBC have to do with television?

Peg: [as Al changes channels on the TV] Now, there you go, you're going too fast. Come on, Al...what was that? What was that? What was that?
Al: A Bewitched with Dick York, not Dick Sargent as Darrin; a Gilligan where the gorilla came to the island; a Full House family Christmas story where they were snowed in at the airport; and a study of the mating habits of the Amazonian catfish with Philippe, not Jacques, Cousteau.
Peg: You can see all that, and yet, you can't see the rim around the toilet?
Al: I see what I wanna see, Peg.

Al: Oh, my God. The power's off, there's no TV. What are we going to do, Peg?
Peg: Well, we could cuddle.
Al: Be serious, Peg.

Sofa So Good [8.14]Edit

Kelly: Bud, Mom and Dad are coming home tommorrow. Is there any way I talk you into taking full balme for this?
Bud: Sure. You can find me a woman who will not say no.
Kelly: So there's no way then.

Kelly: Well this is just as much your fault. If you had of doubted me like you always do this never would have happened.
Bud: Nice try Pyronymph!

Bud: I didn't have anything to do with this, I was out with a girl.
Kelly: And do you really think they're going to believe that?

Bud: [Bud walks in to find Kelly putting out the fire on the remains of the sofa] Who's going to tell mom about this? Oh wait, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can."

Bud: I am sure Mom is having a good time so she will not suspect anything amiss.
Phone rings
Kelly: Hello?
Cut to Wanker County, Peg is on a payphone
Peg: Is my couch OK?
Kelly: Oh, hi Mom.
Peg: I sense something is wrong.
Kelly: Well, you know Bud could have broken his arm or I could have been kidnapped.
Peg: I don't care about that you zagnut! Is my couch OK?
Kelly: Um, yeah, why do you ask?
Peg: When my bottom got red hot I knew I had to call home.

Honey I Blew Up Myself [8.15]Edit

[Al is fitting a pair of shoes to a fat woman named Enid.]
Enid: See, I told you I was a four.
Al: No ma'am, fore is what you yell when the shoe pops off your foot. Are we finished here?
Enid: Well, I'm not sure I like this shade of blue.
Al: I'll tell you what I'll do then. We'll stand you in front of a mirror, I'll begin strangling you. When you reach the shade of blue that is satisfactory to you, you yell "Moo" and I'll stop.
Enid: That's it, I'm taking my business elsewhere.
Al: May I suggest Jenny Craig.

[Peg has just given Al a gift of herself in a negligee.]
Peg: So tell me, Al, what do you really think.
Al: Well I think you look....
Al's Wife-O-Meter: I think you look.... A. Old. Consequences: Groin pull, suffers slight head trama. (Buzzer) B. Good After 10 Beers. Consequences: Groin pull, suffers severe head trauma. (Buzzer) C. Beautiful. Consequences: Groin pull after failure to keep a straight face. (Buzzer) D. Nice. Consequences: Meaningless compliment accepted. Meaningless marriage continues. (Right answer bell)
Al: Nice.

How Green Was My Apple [8.16]Edit

(Al and Peg are on the couch after the D'Arcys cut off the Bundy's cable connection)

Peg: I wish they'd hurry up and fix our cable.
Al: Me too. I hate nature shows. How much longer do we have to watch the mating habits of the sea anemone?
(camera widens out to reveal Bud and Kelly acting out said mating habits by squirming around)
Peg: Well, at least it's better than watching them acting out Martin. I just didn't buy it when Bud kept saying, "I gots ta have it!"

(Gary Coleman as a building inspector comes over)

Coleman: Hi, I'm the building code inspector. Are you the one that called?
Al: I am. (blinks, then points): Aren't you...
Coleman: No! Don't even ask. I'm not him. I've never been him. I can't even stand the little creep. (as he walks in the Bundy house): Now, I understand you wanted to report an illegal driveway.
Al: Yes, I did, Inspector. (points outside): That one right out there. If you look carefully, you can see that it's built nowhere near code. I know, because I built it myself out of ground-up women's shoes. How much is the fine?
Coleman (cheerfully): Well, since you turned yourself in, I think I'll let it go at $100.
Al: I see, and what if I said I built it that way just to make you look like an idiot?
Coleman (slightly offended): Then that would be $1500.
Bud: And what if we called you a moron to boot?
Coleman (getting madder): $2000.
Kelly: Are you sure you're not Gary Coleman from Diff'rnt Strokes?
Coleman: No, I am not.
Kelly: Good. I hated that show.
Coleman (angrily): $5000! (tears off the citation and hands it to Al, who raises his hands)
Al: Don't give it to me. It's not my driveway. It belongs to those people right next door, but they might not let you in, because the only black person they respect is Ted Danson.
Coleman (glares at Al): Whatchu talkin' about, Bundy? (realizes he outed himself with his catchphrase): Aw, hell! Now I gotta fine myself!

Al: A thousand pardons, my little carbuncle.
Penelope: With this attitude, you're gonna be working here for the rest of your life.
Al: Well take a gander in the seat next to you if you want to see what your future looks like.
[Penelope looks at her obese mother, wearing a T-shirt that reads, "Chocolate: It's Not Just For Breakfast Anymore," who is very offended by Al.]
Fat Woman: Come Penelope, let's go someplace where they treat us with Respect!
Al: Try the Moon, you'll weigh less there.

[A fat woman named Barbara is having shoes put onto her at Gary's and both men are trying to remove it.]
Barbara: OW! You're hurting my baby toe!
Dexter: Ma'am, there ain't a damn thing on your body that's "baby".

Bud: Where are you going?
Peg: We're going to the Burned Beyond Recognition concert. We received two free tickets as a consolation prize from the Rick Dees show.
Kelly: Wait, Daddy's the reason that we don't have those tickets. We should have them.
Al: Are you kidding me? You don't know what I had to go through to get those tickets. You don't know where I've been. And believe me, it wasn't Tahiti.
Bud: But Dad, you don't even like B.B.R.
Al: Well, I don't like S-E-X with M-O-M, but it's my J-O-B.

Al: Great, you get upstairs, I'll put the chicken out.
[Al forcibly escorts Marcy out of the Bundy house.]'
