Peggy Bundy: I just got off the phone with Mom. She sounded really down because she stepped on a scale today and it read 380 lbs. Can you believe it? 380 pounds. She used to weigh 374 when she was in school and she's afraid she may be getting fat.
Al: Well, Peg that's probably because she's got about six pounds of food stuck between her teeth.

Al can't pay his gas bill!
11 December 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

You just love Al Bundy as he tries to bring his family closer together. When the family realizes that Al has watched a sad film, they are in trouble. He decides to take the family out in public in the family Dodge. He has a surprise for them. He pulls into a full-service gas station where he only has $2.00 but his family splurges like the Rockefellers by eating and buying candy, slim Jims, and soda. So Al gets stuck pumping gasoline at a full-service gas station and is met by a seemingly perfect family who isn't perfect after all and of course, Marcy and Jefferson come along. All he needs is $12.00 and hopes that his beloved family will raise the money enough for him.
