Trivia

Al mentions early on that he's had a cold for three days. In fact, Ed O'Neill actually did have a cold during the filming of this episode. (His voice is noticeably raspy.) The line about his having a cold was written in to the script at the last minute to cover this up. See more »

Quotes

Ms. Blaub: Look, Mr. Bundy, I'm a very busy woman. So why don't we find out what job career you're good for and get you the hell out of here. Do you have any kind of skills?
Al Bundy: Well, I'm naturally inquisitive. For example, right now I'm wondering how strong that chair is you're sitting in.
