This is a very funny episode, We usually see Al broke but here he has over $1,000 dollars but of course he gets tried of hiding the the money so gives in(I would have taken it to the shos store myself.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Al: So, what do you want, Peg?
      Peggy: Oh I thought I come down so we could cuddle. We haven't done that for a long time.
      Al: Oh Peg, just once, couldn't we do something I like?
      Peggy: I don't wanna dig in my ear and grin like an idiot.

    • Peggy: If Al has money, then he doesn't come home.
      Marcy: Will he take a check? Cause I know the rest of the block'll kick in.
      Peggy: Yes, I know it sounds good on the surface, but the problem is, he doesn't just go away. He goes away and has fun. You see Marcy, my mother taught me two things. Never feed a man, when you can feed yourself twice and if you're gonna rot on the couch in hell, the least your husband can do is to burn right beside you.

    • Marcy: What's wrong with Al? I was out on the street picking up my newspaper when he pulled out. He didn't aim his car at me and gun it.

    • Kelly: So daddy has money. You know, it all makes sense now. Did you notice that last night he wasn't studying roadmaps and fondling his car keys like usual?
      Bud: Yeah and I watched him shave this morning. You know, he didn't pause at all near the jugular.

    • Steve: Hey, I'm not ashamed to say that it gives me great pleasure to share with my wife. What I am ashamed to say is, that's a total lie. But she scares me to death, Al.

    • Peggy: Don't worry Al, I didn't marry you for your money. I'm not really sure why I did, but I know it wasn't money.
      Al: Well, it must have been that old family tradition, find a man, kill his dreams and move on.

    • Al: Hey Peg, have you seen my wallet?
      Peggy: Gee, I don't know. What does it look like?
      Al: Old, wrinkled and empty, like my life.
