16 years of wedded bliss!
22 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Al and Peggy Bundy celebrate their 16 year wedding anniversary. While trying to keep it low key, Peggy is encouraged by Marcy to have a celebration. She hires a caterer, a violinist, and invites friends to the event like Steve and Marcy and Luke Ventura, Al's co-worker. All is fine because Al is planning to buy a watch for his wife. The only problem is that his credit limit is maxed out and he doesn't know why until he comes home to a surprise anniversary party. There are some key moments in this episode especially the scene at the jewelry store and how the violinist used to work as a clown at children's parties. When Al comes home empty-handed, Peggy is rightfully upset because he doesn't have a present for her.
