Rather than just being passive losers who suffer all the insults of life, the Bundys become proactive. While Al gets into a fist fight, Peg gets busy rigging the homecoming queen vote. In most sitcoms, these plans would backfire on both of them by the close of the show. But in this episode, Peg and Al not only get away with their bad behavior, the celebrate it. The episode ends with the newly crowned homecoming queen and her beat-up husband celebrating their dirty deeds in a dance of joy.
This was a turning point for the series. We all cheered at their nastiness and it opened the floodgates for the Bundys to become even more devious and untrustworthy...and that's when Married with Children became the series we know and love.
