Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
The Bundy's go out to a fancy restaurant to spend a great windfall, an inheritance check for $237 from a late uncle of Peggy's. But it becomes apparent that the fine dinning in public is not a part ...
Al Bundy is an unsuccessful middle aged shoe salesman with a miserable life and an equally dysfunctional family. He has a very attractive but lazy wife named Peggy who constantly nags him to death while throwing the little money he earns away on herself. He also has a very promiscuous teen aged daughter named Kelly who makes up in attractiveness what she lacks in IQ points, and a not so attractive but bright teen aged son named Bud who seems to think he is a ladies man. To add to Al's misery is his yuppie next door neighbors Marcy and Steve. Marcy and Steve eventually split up with Marcy keeping the house next door to the Bundys and Steve moving away to be a forest ranger. Later Marcy gets remarried to a gigolo named Jefferson who is the male version of Peggy. The sitcom revolves around Al's never ending attempts to better his life which always leads him right back to where he started. Written by

Jefferson! Good, you're right on time. The Three Stooges marathon is about to start.
The Three Stooges are not funny. You know who I think is funny? That Elaine Boozler is funny.
Oh my God! Those women have brainwashed him. We'll have to deprogram him!
[holds up two fingers]
Quick, how many fingers am I holding up?
[pokes Jefferson in the eyes]
Whoa, thanks Al. They almost had me that time.

Married With Children is the greatest comedy sitcom of all time, I hear lots of good talk about Friends, Frasier, or all these new shows that are coming on, but Married With Children is by far the best comedy of all time, this is the only show where I like every single character and Al and Marcy insulting each other is the funniest stuff you'll ever hear on tv, if you've never seen this show then you've never truly laughed!
