The Dance Show - S5-E5

Corrected entry: Peg goes dancing with Marcy. She meets Andy, who is gay and married. His husband shows up at Al's house telling him about Andy always being with Peg at the dance hall. Peg tells Andy her name is "Lola" though. So how did the husband know to go to Al's house and say, Are you Al Bundy? He has no clue of Peg's real name, let alone where she lives.

Correction: While Andy might not know Peg's real name, Pete (Andy's husband) says he's been following Andy every Tuesday and Thursday (so this has been going on for a while) to see where he goes and finds him dancing (with Al's wife). We know Pete follows Andy to see where he goes so he could easily follow Peg to where she lives. There's a number of ways for Pete to find out who lives there (ask a neighbor, looked at the mail, etc.) Andy still thinks Peg is Lola, and single, because he's not following her.


You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Corrected entry: Jefferson puts door stoppers under Al's cart so it wont move forward and they will win. Al and Peg just stand there and are upset because they can't move the cart and will lose. Common sense: Back up.


Correction: Peg and Al have been shown a number of times to lack common sense and in the scene they just couldn't figure out what do and initially thought it was something wrong with the cart. However, this is not out of character for them, especially since when people are in a rush is when they make stupid mistakes.

And Baby Makes Money - S5-E11

Corrected entry: Peg keeps telling Al "my temperature is up" in order to get pregnant. In reality, when a woman is fertile, her temp will be lower than 98.6.


Correction: Following the release of the egg (i.e. fertility), basal body temperature increases by about half a degree in almost all women. Progesterone secreted after ovulation heats the body to prepare for pregnancy.


Peggy and the Pirates - S7-E18

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, the ending credits say "Special Appearance: David Garrison as Steve Rhoades." David Garrison did not appear as Steve Rhoades in this episode, but as Rubio the Cruel.

Correction: There is no mistake. The pirate story uses Married With Children characters, rather than real life people being the characters. So Al Bundy was Captain Courage (as opposed to Ed O'Neill being Captain Courage), so Steve Rhoades was Rubio and David Garrison was Steve Rhoades.


You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Corrected entry: When Marcy loses her contact lenses she is run over twice by shopping carts, leaving tire marks on both sides of her clothes. In the overhead showing shot showing all the characters, she is clean. Cut to a closeup, she has the tire marks again.

Correction: Marcy is never seen in an overhead shot. Only Jefferson, Al and Peg are seen running her over. When Marcy is shown, she is lying on the floor with wheel marks on both sides of her suit.

Oldies but Young 'Uns - S5-E17

Corrected entry: Oddly enough that the song Al is looking for is just played when Al switches on the radio. But then the DJ announces days of music - but after a jingle nothing happens. No music, no DJ, just silence for seconds - and no-one has switched the radio off.


Correction: The first part was simply a coincidence, which happens often in TV as well as film. The second part (known to broadcasters as "dead air") occasionally happens on broadcast radio stations (as well as TV) for any number of reasons (human error, etc.).


You Better Shop Around (1) - S5-E21

Corrected entry: The "shotgun" Peggy uses to shoot the pool in which Al was sitting is really a BB rifle.


Correction: The word "shotgun" isn't said in the episode. They never say what type of weapon Peg used, she just holds it up and fires.

You Better Shop Around (2) - S5-E22

Corrected entry: The "knives" on the Bundys' Cart of Death are plastic.


Correction: And why wouldn't they be? nothing ever states that they are real metallic knives.


Frat Chance - S7-E6

Corrected entry: In this episode Bud fills the empty milk box with water right from the faucet. In the next episode Al tells how he has been attacked by the water company's woman on payday forcing him to pay his water bill. 2 episodes later there is water right out the faucet, and they say it's "for the first time in months".


Correction: That's because each episode of married with children is not tied to the episode before it. Months can pass from one episode to the next.

You Better Shop Around (1) - S5-E21

Corrected entry: In The scene where the store manager comes over to Al and ask him to buy something but wont take his checks. He is still asking for 2 forms of ID. If your paying cash, why would you need 2 forms of ID?

Correction: The store manager does not trust Al. So he wants 2 forms just to burden Al.


It's a Bundyful Life (1) - S4-E11

Corrected entry: After being strip searched by the Bundys, Marcy looks at her left hand and wants her wedding ring back. If you look at the strip searching closely you will see that no Bundy is near her left hand, and is untouched the whole time.


Correction: When Marcy gets in, Bud moves her left hand and it is at this time he takes her ring.

Al Bundy: "I Care", by Al Bundy. When hooters jiggle around and I find nickels on the ground, I care. When a Mustang engine purrs and the bathroom is not hers, I care. When the pitchers on the mound and the wife is underground, I care. But when I've been playing this for days, I will kill anyone who stays, I SWEAR!



When the mall Santa lands in the Bundys' back yard, everybody looks toward the back, and when Al looks forward, he cracks a smile although he's upset about the matter. Ed O'Neil admitted he couldn't contain his laughter.



Officer Dan appears on the show, once in a while. In the final episodes he is a member of No Ma'am. Officer Dan's real name is Dan Tullis Jr.
