The Beach Episode!
30 May 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

When Steve and Marcy decide to go to the beach for the first nice day of spring or summer, they leave an envelope for the guy that Steve hit with his Mercedes. Steve cowards and pleads poverty by giving the guy, the Bundys' address. So when the guy comes by to collect insurance information, he is going to get a nasty note from the Bundys. Because in the envelope is a $100, so what do the Bundys do but take it and spend it and go to the beach. At the beach, Al meets an old girlfriend played by Morgan Brittany. Bud and Kelly each bet that they can get a date by the end of the beach day. All Al really wants is a family picture of him and the kids. It's a good episode.
