Al's quiet three-day weekend plans to watch his favorite John Wayne movie "Hondo" are ruined when Peggy's eccentric relatives come to visit the Bundy household. They include her unseen, obese mother, two feuding uncles; the hulking Irwin and the effeminate Otto, as well as a singing and dancing triplet of aunts whose showbiz career is threatened by Al's bad advice to them. Al then interrupts and ruins a romantic evening between Steve and Marcy to confide with his problems. Written by

According to Michael G. Moye
, the name Bundy came from (at the time) well-known World Wrestling Federation villain King Kong Bundy
, who had challenged Hulk Hogan
for the World Title at Wrestlemania II. He later made an appearance as one of Peg's hillbilly cousins. The name "Bundy" did not came from infamous serial killer Ted Bundy
. King Kong Bundy also appears in a later episode as himself, wrestling Bud in a match on a televised wrestling show called "Wrestlepalooza". Bud ends up there because Al has asked him to get King Kong's autograph. Bud is trying to become a member of "NO MA'AM", so his task to gain membership is to get the autograph from King Kong Bundy. King Kong Bundy also appeared as Peg's Uncle Irwin. See more
When Al is talking to Peggy about not wanting to get involved in one of her family's problems uncle Otto is standing behind him and he is clearly distracted by someone or something off camera as he keep looking away from the scene. See more
Hey Mom, are we going to go down to the pony rides to see the look on the horse's face when Uncle Irwin chooses his mount?
No. Not today, Bud. Every since Daddy paid for dinner with his watch, he's been sort of a crab apple.
I think he's mad at us.
Don't take it personally. Daddy always takes a noose with him into the bathroom.
Uh-oh! Daddy's in the bathroom? Mom's up there taking a bath! Well, maybe he won't notice...
[Al screams and appears walking down the stairs
Peg, I'm blind!
Very funny, ...
