A Bundy Labor Day
15 June 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Al Bundy decides to take his family out on the road not in the Dodge but the mysteriously new car that takes it's space. It's a convertible with the top down. The Bundys including Bud and Kelly dread spending the day with their parents much less stuck in traffic. It's the beginning of a new fall season and Peggy has to get home in time to see "Nun of This" starring Karen Valentine as a nun who has had enough and she's your worst nightmare, a nun with a gun. Al wants the family to do something together this year and they are stuck in traffic for hours moving only inches. In the meantime, Marcy has come back from two weeks vacation without the Bundys noticing her absence and with a new outlook on life.
