Not one of my favorites!

I can't write Peggy's maiden name because it comes across as profane on this website. You know what it is if you're a longtime fan. Anyway, Al and Kelly fake getting sick in order not to have to spend a week at a family reunion particularly of Peggy's strange, inbred relatives. While Peggy is excited, the family would rather fake illness than spend their time with that freak show on the other side of the family. Meanwhile, Kelly does get sick and Al tries to take care of her until he gets sick. In their absence, Al dreams about beautiful women fighting over each other. I don't recall Marcy being in this episode at all. I remember Bud being left out of Al and Kelly's plan to fake sickness in order to get out of spending time with relatives.
