Trivia

It is revealed that the previous episodes of season 6 were all a dream. Katey Sagal had miscarried in real life, so the writers decided to get rid of Peggy and Marcy's pregnancies. See more »

Goofs

In the episode "Al Bundy, Shoe Dick"(episode # 6.11), Al drops a woman's dress shoe into a fish tank to show how it will fall apart when wet. In a medium close-up shot, Al (wearing a suit jacket) reaches into the tank to retrieve the shoe, but when he pulls it out, his arm isn't wet. See more »

Quotes

Al: [narrating; voice-over] She was a sultry dame, dressed to the nines, except for a pair of cheap pumps. Yeah, she had more curves in her than the Materhorn at Disneyland. And there didn't appear to be any Japanese tourists standing in front of me waiting for a ride. Yeah, she was a hot dish. Hotter than my neighbor's dinner. By the way, how come I never eat dinner? Oh well, that's another case.
