    • Bud: Can we call a roofer now? Al: No, we can't. I'm going back up there. But this time I'm going up with the right equipment. Peggy: A Wile E. Coyote mask?

    • Bud: Hey, Mom, should we be worried that Daddy's up there with metal tools in a lightning storm? Peggy: Well, who wants to go tell him? Bud: Well, I'll catch a cold. No... Kelly: My hair will get all messed up... Peggy: Then I'll hear no more about it.

    • Peggy: How many more holes did you put into the roof by walking on it in spiked golf shoes? Oh and by the way honey, this time on your way down you took out our TV antenna. Al: I'm sorry Peg but I needed something to break my fall. Since there was no life wire or your neck handy I grabbed the first thing that hit my face. Peggy: Well, our reception is shot to hell. Al: I'm sorry Peg. Had I known you wanted to watch Dallas tonight I would've just put my hands behind my back and slalomed headfirst onto the patio.

    • Kelly: So, did you fix the roof, Daddy? Al: No pumpkin, I didn't. When I got up there I saw this hole but figured it'd be a lot more fun to take a header into the yard.

    • Al: Bundy men have always been masters of their own fate. Remember Grandpa Bundy? He sure knew his way around the toolbox. There was a fixing man. Bud: You mean Grandpa Hook? Al: Yeah, well, circular saws were nwe back then. But dammit, he carved his own hook afterwards and carried on. You didn't see him calling someone. Peggy: Well, it would have been difficult for him to hold the phone. You know, he only had one finger left on that other hand after that mix-up with the nailgun. Al: One finger is all a real american needs.
