Did You Know?


When Steve opens up the door to the garage, the background shows that he entered from a narrow hallway with a paneled wall. He should be entering from the living room, with a brick wall and a desk in the background. This reveals that the set used to film garage scenes and the set for the living room scenes are separate.

Bud: Where's Dad?
Peggy: In the bathroom breaking in his new toilet.
[Al walks in the living room and sits on the couch]
Peggy: How was it, honey?
Al: I don't know, Peg. I'm constipated. This is the worst day of my life. I wonder if this ever happened to Dad?
Peggy: Aww, honey. Do you want me to undercook you some chicken?
Al: No thanks, Peg. It'll take more than raw poultry to fix what's wrong with me.

TV Announcer: And now back to the rest of ABC's lineup: "Roseanne" and the Emmy winning "Thirtysomething".

Al's Room!
28 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All Al wants is a bathroom of his own. When he decides to build a bathroom in his garage, he becomes so immersed with the building. He gets a first class toilet and recalls a childhood memory where he went with his dad to the toilet factory in Maine and used their toilet for the first time. Al's love for his toilet is kind of funny, sad, and pathetic all at once. He tortures his family and notices that his tools keep going missing so he suspects immediate family. Peggy has a plan too to win the lottery and needs the money. I have to say that this episode is funny because of it's obvious subject matter. Al wants a man's bathroom of his own where he could go and read the paper. The family has to put up with his recent insanity.
