Al: Tell her that you love her?

Al: Go to sleep? It's only nine o'clock. What are you? Old?
Griff: Yeah.
Al: [beat] Me too.

"Married with Children: Something Larry This Way Comes (#9.21)" (1995)
Gary: I did not amass my considerable personal fortune by giving up. I am determined to turn this place around, and I'll tell you why. Years ago, in my first business venture, I went what I thought was the sure thing. But it turned out that my partner was a little shyster. I lost my shirt!
Griff: You still had a bra on underneath?
Al Bundy: Griff, shut up!
Gary: From that day forward, I vowed two things: one that I would never again have another failing business venture. And two: that I would exact my revenge on the guy that ripped me off.

Gary: The Larry Storch School of Heating and Air Conditioning Repair.

Larry Storch: Larry Storch is in the house!
Al Bundy: Hit the deck!

[Gary is counting the money in the cash register at the shoe store]

[Gary angrily glares at both of them]

[Al and Griff are dressed as werewolves during a Midnight Madness sale at the shoe store]
Griff: Tell me again what werewolves have to do with selling shoes.

Griff: Yeah, yeah... moon... shoes.


"Married with Children: And Bingo Was Her Game-O (#9.22)" (1995)
Jefferson: Al, when are we going to stop sipping this beer and start drinking it?
Griff: Yeah, all this beer foreplay is making me thirsty.
Ike: What's foreplay?
Bob Rooney: It's the act that comes right before sex. It lasts... about ten seconds.
Ike: Well then what's sex?

Jefferson: Okay, our next beer is a fine Afghani ale, whose Pashtu name loosely translated means, "yellow mountain run-off".
Bob Rooney: [a jingling sound is heard from inside the beer cans] Oh, hey listen. There's a prize in every can.
Griff: I'd be careful about that prize stuff. Remember what fell out of that can of Russian Chernobyl beer?
Ike: What? That was an olive, right?
Al Bundy: Sure, with an eyelid.

Police Dispatcher: All units, all units, report to city hall. The mayor has been taken hostage by a group of...
Officer Dan: [turns off his radio] Blah, blah, blah, shut up!

Sierra Madre: I just had a thought. Why don't you get a tattoo? I once got my boyfriend's name tattooed on me for his birthday.
Officer Dan: I don't see any tattoo.
Sierra Madre: Here, I'll show you. Gather around...
[all the men gather around Sierra Madre, and they all suddenly yell and gasp]
Ike: Oh boy, I'd love to be her boyfriend.

"Married with Children: Breaking Up Is Easy to Do: Part 3 (#11.16)" (1997)
[first lines]
[Al has a bruse on his face from being punched earlier in the previous episode]
Jefferson D'Arcy: Oh, Al that's a beaut.
Griff: I haven't seen a shiner that bad since I told my wife that she was starting to look like Al Roker.
Jefferson D'Arcy: Well, it look's like Marcy was right. She said that it was only a matter of time before some young woman beat the holy hell out of you.
Al Bundy: I'll have you know that I got this black eye last night, explaining to a jealous boyfriend how his little lady would rather stay with me.
Jefferson D'Arcy: Well, where is she?
Al Bundy: I sent her out shopping for a new waterbed. This one has a leak and I worry when she bounces. So, you just tell Marcy that I'm doing just fine with the ladies. That Al Bundy is not only moving in the fast lane, but he's doing wheelies in it, baby!
[Jefferson exits]
Griff: Is it true. Al? About the girl?
Al Bundy: Every word of it. Except that the guy's name was Sasquatch, the girl left with him, and now there's an odor coming from that waterbed that scares even me!

Griff: Are things really that bad?
Al Bundy: Yes, things are that bad. Married men, whether separated or divorced, can never go back to being single. See, there's this gene, it's called the single gene. It's in us when we're born. But as soon as we marry, it mysterously disappears. Nobody knows why, but I suspect it's removed chromosone by chromosone by our wives.
Griff: And how would they go about this?
Al Bundy: Do we really know why they own so many tweezers?
Griff: So, Al, if they don't like us being single, why do they keep kicking us out of the house?
Al Bundy: That's part of their cruel tricks. See, without the single gene, we're helpless. We just wonder around smelling of Rogaine and gin, until finally we fall off our toilets and die.


"Married with Children: Breaking Up Is Easy to Do: Part 2 (#11.15)" (1997)
Griff: [seeing Marcy approach] You're busted!
Jefferson D'Arcy: Her bust? Yeah, isn't it great? If Marcy had headlights like these I wouldn't be going to traffic school!

Griff: Al, I thought we were your buddies.
Al Bundy: We are. That's why I'm throwing you out the door instead of out the window.

Calvin Farquhar: X? Are you Muslim as in the civil rights leader Malcolm X?

Al: Griff, girls like that are a dime a dozen.
Griff: Here's a dime, bring me a dozen.


"Married with Children: Naughty But Niece (#9.4)" (1994)
Griff: I'm only working here today because I got no place else to go. I use to have a place to go, but then I got divorced. Yep... divorced. She got the house, the car, the money. All I got was the right to remain silent. But you know what really ticks me off is that Michael Jackson is married and I'm not.

Bud: Who are you?
Griff: Name's Griff. I work here.
Bud: That's funny. Dad told never told me he hired another guy.

Griff: That's funny. He never told me he had a son?
Bud: A daughter?
Griff: Nope.
Bud: A wife?
Griff: Not living.
Bud: Four touchdowns in one game?
Griff: Oh, hell yeah.


"Married with Children: Business Sucks: Part 1 (#9.5)" (1994)
Al Bundy: Why does every woman that comes in here says they are a size five shoe?
Griff: I don't know. I guess women just aren't comfortable with what size they are.
Al Bundy: I'm glad we're men. Men are superior to women, right?
Griff: Right.
Al Bundy: We never lie about size. Well, of course I don't.
Griff: Well, I don't either.
Al Bundy: Neither do I.
[both Al and Griff stare at each other]

Al Bundy: Great idea. To the nudie bar.
Bob Rooney: Where Christmas is nice...
Al Bundy: And lap dances are half-price.
Al Bundy, Griff, Jefferson D'Arcy, Bob Rooney, Ike, Officer Dan: At the nudie bar!
Ike: Where you drink down the shooters...
Officer Dan: And unwrap the hooters.
Al Bundy, Griff, Jefferson D'Arcy, Bob Rooney, Ike, Officer Dan: At the nudie bar!

Al: Where as you are a giant seal with a pork filling.
Shirley: You haven't heard the last of this, what goes around comes around.
Al: Well considering your orbit looks like I have but ten more years.


"Married with Children: Bud on the Side (#11.11)" (1997)
Griff: Al, lighten up. You didn't have a problem when Kelly dated that wealthy older man.
Al: I wouldn't have a problem if BUD dated a weathy older man. Anybody but Gary.


"Married with Children: I Want My Psycho Dad: Part 1 (#9.12)" (1994)
Psycho Dad: Yes, quit. Quit, apologize, and renounce forever the character of Psycho Dad. If this is the kind of following that I inspire, then I'm afraid I must stop leading. However, since the network's offering me big bucks, be sure to watch me in my new show: "Lefkowitz: Special Education Teacher's Aid". Thank you. And to you, Al: goodbye, and, uh, get help.
Ike: I can't believe Psycho Dad would sell us out.
Al: That's not Psycho Dad talking. He doesn't use words like "character" or "education" or "Lefkowitz". He's been brainwashed by people like Marcy and her do-gooders. Well, we've got to think of something.
Griff: Use the power of our giant manly brains?
Al: No, that'll take too long.

"Married with Children: Children of the Corns (#11.2)" (1996)
Gary: You know, I could get a trained chimp to do your job, but it'd be a waste of a perfectly good trained chimp.
Al: Yeah, but it's such a nice vacation for him to get out of your bedroom.
Griff: [sucking up] By the way, I think that is one lucky chimp.
Gary: This year, we're going to have a sales contest. First place gets the raise. Second place gets a swift kick in the ass!
Al: Why don't you give is a real incentive? Let the winner kick you in the ass!
Gary: Instead of kicking my butt, you should be kissing it.
Al: Hey! What do you think I look like, your monkey?
