Top of the Heap (1991) (This was the only one to get its own series): This is the pilot episode of Top of the Heap (1991) and the 100th for Married with Children. In the episode, Charlie and his half-witted son Vinnie (played by a then unknown Matt LeBlanc) try to fit in at a high society fund raiser. The series would follow this same formula and lasted for only seven episodes, but managed to produce its own spin-off, Vinnie & Bobby (1992).
Radio Free Trumaine (1995): This episode centers around two College Radio DJ's at Bud's school, Trumaine University. Steve, the new Dean, expels them after on-air claims that he blackmailed his way to the position. Marcy shows up looking for her new bank employee April (played by a pre-famous Keri Russell), a girl romantically linked to Bud and the school's tall basketball star, Nikolai. Marcy starts a protest against Steve, while April, Bud and Nikolai talk things over on the radio.
Enemies (1996): In this Friends (1994) rip-off, a handsome deliveryman named Tom lives with his gorgeous girlfriend Shannon (played by Nicole Eggert), his half-sister Maria, and their lazy friend Jackson. Because of Tom and Shannon's rocky relationship, he asks Kelly out for the evening while delivering a package to the Bundy house. Shannon, just to make Tom jealous, asks out a handsome Millionaire named Henry (played by Alan Thicke), and the four of them end up at the local grease spoon diner in the inner city. The evening gets more X-rated when both Tom and Shannon try to outdo each other with their dates. Edit
Shane Sweet's character was disliked during his brief appearance in Season 7 so he was written out and his last appearance is actually in the Season 8 episode entitled "Ride Scare" where an image of Seven appears on a milk carton with the "Missing" sign above it, pointing at the fact that the character went missing; it is likely that the Bundys lost him or he just plain ran away.
