Funny and memorable early episode of the series. It proves that a woman likes her certain bra type and that's sexy!
7 January 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "Married with Children" episode "Her Cups Runneth Over" is very funny and clever an episode that was well done, it proves a woman likes her certain bra type! And also it's sometimes sexy yet very comical when Al and Steve go to a lingerie shop! Peg(Katey Sagal) is so depressed and miserable on her birthday of all days when she finds out that her favorite bra style and type has been discontinued! And as you know all the stress and worry and work falls on Al(Ed O' Neill) who along with Steve even leaves Chicago and they travel to a special lingerie and bra shop in Wisconsin to find the special bra for Peg! Really funny and hilarious having two men like Steve and Al especially go into a bra shop, that's not only sexy, but sleazy having gay men shop for merchandise and even porn peep shows! Also a nice treat June 1985 Playboy Playmate of the month the sexy Spanish beauty Devin Devasquez has a small part which involves her trying on a bra in a dressing room or should I say undressing the bra at Al's approval which causes him to faint! All people were pleased at the episodes end even Peg! Really a cool and neat episode that was memorable with a good and sexy storyline about women's bras!
