The Bundy family which makes up of chauvinist shoe salesman Al, his lazy housewife Peggy, their dumb 15-year-old daughter Kelly, and their bratty 12-year-old con artist son Bud, have settled into a peaceful co-existence in suburban Chicago, married only by the vicious verbal volleys they exchange to each other while awake. Peggy invites their new neighbors, newlyweds Steve and Marcy Rhoades, over for the evening, so she forbids Al from going out to a basketball game with his single co-worker Luke, from the shoe store.

What's that, Mom?
