Episode Summary

Al and Steve are drawn closer together when they try to restore a 1965 Mustang. Peg and Marcy, on the other hand, can't help but despise their husbands.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Al and Steve buy a mustang.

    This is one of my favorite episodes off of the first season. Steve and Al buy a mustang but it happens to be stolen. This is the first episode where Al and Steve have something in common and also first time Al actually gets hurt. There is alot of background of information on steve(like he had a mustang in college)

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • While Peg and Marcy are eating salads, they are originally drinking from cans in "coolies" (blue styrofoam holders). In the middle of Peg's sentence the scene cuts and shows they are drinking dark liquids from regular glasses.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Al: You used to buy a car to have fun. Now you worry about four doors, milage, whether or not you survive a head-on collision. I mean, who cares?

    • Steve: come on Al, live a little. You can't go through your whole life ordering dinner through a clowns head.
      Al: Oh yeah? (opens Peggy's mouth and talks into it) Cook some food!

    • Al: Steve, let's go for a ride in the Mustang. Just sit and look cooly out the window and we'll pretend these (Gesturing at their wives) are our mothers.

    • Peggy: Al just had it in his head that the cop was an impersonator. I'm sorry I put that in your head, Al.

    • Steve: It's not just a car, honey - it's a piece of history. A 289 with dual carbs and a pony interior.
      Marcy: Steve, where did you learn to talk like that?
      Steve: Come on honey. After all, I was a guy before I met you.

    • Peg: They bought something that we hate, without asking us, and that is bad. But now we have the right to go out and buy whatever we want, without asking them, and that is good. It's in the bible.
      Marcy: But we can't afford to buy anything.
      Peg: Well, then lets just be mean as hell.
