Marcy and Jefferson announce that they are expecting a baby, sending Al into pearls of laughter saying that it's the end of Jefferson's life, until Peggy announces the same. Al begins to lose his hair at an accelerated rate, thinking it's the end of the world for him. Kelly and Bud aren't pleased with the news either and take it out on Al. Written by

When Katey Sagal
got pregnant in real life, the writers decided to make her character Peggy pregnant in the show as well, so they wouldn't have to hide Sagal's pregnancy. When she unexpectedly miscarried later in the season, the 11th episode 'Al Bundy, Shoe Dick' was written to reveal that the previous 10 episodes were one of Al's bad dreams, and thus explaining why both Peggy and Marcy were no longer pregnant. In seasons 8 and 10, when Sagal got pregnant again, she would be temporarily written out of the show, or her pregnancy hidden. In both instances, she successfully gave birth. See more
