The Bundy's and Darcy's engage in a full-fledged, take-no-prisoners, scorched-earth feud over who has rights to the apple in the back yard. It's a bit of a moot point since Jefferson already ate it. But several pseudo-celebrities turn up in a vain effort to settle the dispute. Written by David Foss

Will always be a special episode for me
15 August 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This episode will always be a special episode for me. Not because it was the best episode -- because it was far from it -- but because I was on hand for the filming of it.

I was a sophomore at UCSD and we made a field trip to Hollywood to watch the filming of my favorite show. This was that episode.

What I remember about it is sitting in bleachers that faced the living room set. Most of the other scenes that occurred in the 2nd half of the episode were either pre-taped and the producers recorded our laughter as we watched on TV monitors above our seats, or the action happened on a set behind us that we had to watch on TV.

It was an average episode but was special for me because I got to watch my favorite program filmed live. It also featured cameos by Danny Bonaduce and Gary Coleman so I feel fortunate that I was able to watch it film live.

As I remember it shot very quickly (under and hour) basically in real time except for one scene in which Ed O'Neil flubbed a line and they had to start over.

That was in contrast to the other show we saw shot that day: Nurses. That one took about 4 hours and all of the scenes with Loni Anderson were pre-taped and shown on a monitor as our reactions were recorded for the laugh track.

The highlight of that was meeting David Rache of "Sledge Hammer!" fame. "Sledge Hammer!" was one of my favorite shows of the Eighties, and he was a very nice guy, and he came over and shook all of our hands in between takes. We asked him what happened to Sledge Hammer! (which was canceled) and he responded "I've moved on to bigger and better things!" Class act.
