When his paycheck is taken by bill collectors, Al decides to do something with his non-life: he enters a shoe selling contest and wins. The prize is a first class ticket to Hawaii which the family turns into four stand-by's. After dumping Seven off with the D'Arcys, the Bundys travel to Chicago's O'Hare Airport where in an surprising twist, Al masquerades as an aging 1960s rock star, named 'Axel Bundy' from the group 'Shoes and Socks' in which they hob-nob into the first class lounge with six famous musicians, Richie Havens, Spencer Davis, John Sebastian, Robby Krieger, Peter Noone, and Mark Lindsay.

Up To Par.
13 July 2014 | by (Deming, New Mexico, USA) – See all my reviews

I can never quite get over the imagination of the writers of this series -- and their eager raunchiness. In this episode, Al tries desperately to win a free vacation to Hawaii by selling the most shoes.

But the plots never amount to much. It's the string of gags that hold them together, and they may have little to do with the development of the story. I'll just give two examples.

Al and Peggy are sitting on the couch. Al has to sneeze so he withdraws a pamphlet about Hawaii from his breast pocket, intending to use it as a handkerchief. (!) Peggy whips the document from his hands and Al sneezes into his palms. He looks at them with disgust and then wipes the snot off on Buck, his shaggy dog.

But that's not wit at the series' best. Later, after the neighbors make a comic exit, there is a moment of quiet, and Kelly says, "Mom, do you know what I'm thinking?" Peggy replies, "No, what is it?" Kelly: "I don't know. I forgot what I was thinking." Well, put it this way. It's light years ahead of Abbott and Costello.
