Quotes

Al Bundy: Here's what you do. The guy's gonna knock on the door. Open the door real quick, don't give him a chance to think, and sucker punch him in the breadbasket. He'll drop like an ox. That what I should have done to Peg's mother, but she horned me first.

Peggy gives the finger but it's Steve who's afraid!
28 May 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

This is not one of my favorite episodes. The family waits for Peggy to return home with a Beta videotapes. Of course, Beta was beaten by VHS overwhelmingly. With a few choices, Peggy disappoints the family. Steve gets cut off by a guy who has a bumper sticker reading "I heart San Quentin." Afraid, the guy follows him home to the Bundys and then calls. Things get worse when Steve thinks the guy is coming to revenge him for cutting him off so Steve invites the Bundys over for a night watching VHS tapes in their home. When they do meet the fellow that was causing so much trouble, they are in for quite a surprise. It's an okay episode.
