Not my favorite!
10 December 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Amanda Bearse plays both Marcy and her identical cousin who is a lesbian visiting the D'Arcys. She's worried of course that the Bundys will scare her away. Ironically, her cousin befriends Al. Meanwhile Marcy is worried that her cousin will steal Jefferson away or steal the attention away from her. It's not a great episode. While Bearse is a great actress and director, this episode was kind of weak to regular Married with Children episodes. Now, this episode is considered outdated but then it was considered controversial for it's time. Anyway, I never cared for this episode or for the identical cousin storyline.
