Did You Know?


[Al is fondling the right foot and leg of an attractive young woman at the shoe store]
Jade: Sir? It's been 10 minutes. Don't you think you should get me a shoe?
Al: That's an all-too-common mistake in the shoe business, Miss. You see, us real pros understand the need to hold a foot and getting a good look at the leg so that we know what we're dealing with. I hope you are not too uncomfortable.
Jade: Well actually... it turns me on.
[Peggy and the rest of the Bundys enter]
Al: We're closed!

A Lousy 8 Bucks!
28 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

Go home, Peg, Al tells her at the shoe store. "I am home, Al" she replies. The family's home is being consumed by termites so the extermination company overcharges them for a tent and the poison to kill the termites. Al jokes that Peggy's mother's muumuu could be the tent and if she doesn't wash it-the odor could kill the termites. For the Bundys, they need to spend the night so Al suggests the night at the shoe store. I don't know why they didn't ask their neighbors the Rhoades. While Kelly scores tickets and back-stage passes for a rock star with a house in Jamaica, she doesn't get tickets for Bud who informs their parents that they have report cards. Kelly is grounded and has to study for a math test so she can't go to the concert but she plans to escape anyway.
