Goofs

When the security camera footage is shown Al putting the book back, pretending he found it there, his shirt and pants are not the same when he actually went in with. It's obvious this was filmed at the end of the episode because the 2nd time he goes back to the library, its the same clothes as the footage See more »

Al returns a library book!
28 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard to imagine a library book that was due back in 1957. Al recalls the incident with the librarian, Mrs. De Groot, who hated Al then and now. As Al is forced to return to the library to return the book, he is faced with the older Mrs. De Groot who has stayed and waited for his return. What Al doesn't know is that he's videotaped putting back the book on the shelf by tripping Mrs. De Groot. "Don't Bundy that book" becomes a motto for treating books with care and attention. Mrs. De Groot had never high expectations of Al's life. When the videotape airs on local television, he humiliates himself and his family while facing a huge fine for his overdue book.
