The Razor's Edge - S2-E10

Stupidity: Al tells Peg to hide the meat and cheese tray from Bud and Kelly. Obviously you need to refrigerate meat and cheese yet Kelly says I swear I smell cold cuts. Do we have any? Al and Peg both say no. They both have to see it in the fridge every time they open it.

976-SHOE - S4-E8

Factual error: The sheriff does not come to your house and take your credit cards just because they are maxed out. The only time they would do that is if you stole someone else's card and were using it.

Sixteen Years and What Do You Get - S1-E6

Plot hole: Peg maxes out the credit card buying Al anniversary gifts and hiring a caterer. When Al tries to buy a watch for Peg it's declined. Later on Kelly somehow uses the credit card and is able to buy the expensive picture frame at the same store Al tried to buy the watch.

The Poker Game - S1-E8

Plot hole: Notice when Steve joins the card game. He looks at his cards and says I'm in. The cards are face up on the table! And for some reason the other players have one card facing out where others can see it.

Oldies but Young 'Uns - S5-E17

Other mistake: Just before Charlie and his son leave Peg says "Charlie, my watch". Implying that he took it off her wrist. Yet during the whole scene she didn't have a watch on her wrist. It appears in his hand out of nowhere.

Tooth or Consequences - S4-E4

Plot hole: Al can't eat because his mouth is numb. So they go ahead and eat. Al can eat after the novocaine wears off and Peg can put leftovers in the fridge. They all act like Al can't eat for days and there won't be any food left.

Peggy Turns 300 - S4-E19

Plot hole: In this episode Al is about to break Puggy Weaver's record. Peg decides to bowl and scores a perfect score of 300. Problem is Peg is a horrible bowler, as seen in season 2 episode 9. She never bowls with Al or even enjoys bowling, so this episode really makes no sense.

Suggested correction: This is not a plot hole, but a plot point. Yes, Peg is a horrible bowler, but it's typical Al Bundy luck that his wife would be able to put together a perfect game no matter how unlikely.

So this one and only episode she scores a perfect game? Highly unlikely. Oh and she's wearing a long evening dress too which would make it difficult to bowl. So this episode makes no sense.

It is a comedy, so having all those "strikes" against her, she still managed to bowl a perfect game - leaving Al hopeless and hapless.


It makes perfect sense. In the world of the show, the universe is out to screw Al over. The worst that can possibly happen to him will happen no matter how unlikely.
