When Al's luck starts turning good, as well as the rest of the Bundys, (Bud being accepted to a prestigious college, Kelly quitting her waitress job for an acting career, and Peggy wining a lot of money at Bingo) he knows that sooner or later he is doomed thanks to the Bundy curse for everything will turn bad.

Al states that the Bundy-curse works in the way that, once starting to accumulate good luck, it immediately builds up an equal amount of bad luck. The sheer stupidity of Al is his own downfall, because, instead of immediately admitting his good luck, and consequently being "showered" with a little bad luck, he builds up even more good luck, only to be "drained" with bad luck. That is karma working its magic on a stupid person - one could conclude. See more

You mean that foot odor thing?
