If I'm not mistaken...how could Marcy open the door if after Jefferson walks in, he automatically locks the door and then starts talking to Al?
(the doorbell has rung)
Al: Pumpkin, could you see who's at the door?
Kelly: (staring at it from staircase) No. UGH! Maybe I need new glasses!
Kelly: You guys should see how clean Mom got the bathroom upstairs. Did you know that there's a window above the sink?
Bud: Kel, there's no window in the bathroom.
Kelly: Yes there is! It looks into the house across the street. There's this girl there who looks exactly like me. Every time I look over there, she's always staring at me. Maybe she's a lesbian.
Bud: Maybe she's an idiot.
Kelly: She does have this really stupid look on her face. Come on, I'll show you. Oh, I hope she's home!
(standing before a board labeled 'Peg's Schedule)
Al: Kids, now that we've retrained Mommy, I've come up with a plan that will maximise her productivity. There are 3 of us. And Mommy can only work 24 hours a day.
Peggy: You know, I don't remember any of you. But, if you say you're family, I guess it's true.
Al: Yeah, why would we lie about something the courts have ruled on repeatedly?
(Peggy has hit her head, and woken up not knowing who anyone, herself included, is. A gleeful Al is trying to take advantage of this by pushing her out of the front door with a suitcase and directions)
Kelly: Ohmygod - Mom has Indonesia!
(Peggy is passed out on the couch; the kids are loudly trading insults)
Al: Kids, keep it down! Keep it down! Your mother needs her rest. The house is a mess, the family's starving. Her work here is done.
Bud: Hey, Mom doesn't look so good.
Al: You should see her without her mask.
Bud: And look at this TV Guide... (shows) The last chocolate stain was at three o'clock today. She's obviously been unconscious for hours!
Kelly: Hey, look! There's a dent in the coffee table like it's been hit by a big, hard hair-do!
Al: Listen 'Nancy Drool' and 'Hardly Boy'... it's impossible for your mother to have fallen, 'cause that would mean at some point she'd must've been standing!
Bud: (fighting with Kelly) And for future reference, the next time a producer asks you what your method is, please don't say "The Sponge"!
(Peg is at home alone, eating a snack and watching TV; she gets up to grab something)
TV: Today on Oprah: A clean house is a safe house.
Peggy: Yeah, right! (slips on a bon-bon, hits her head, and passes out)
Peggy: Am I in Hell?
Al: No, Peg, if you were in Hell then you'd be sitting on a throne and the devil would be packing.
Kelly: Mom's cooking? I'm going to call the doctor.
Al: Touch that phone and I'll kill ya.
Kelly: Hey, Mom needs one of those guys, you know, the ones that make you take your clothes off when you go into their office.
Bud: The Principal?
Kelly: Daddy, you might not remember this but, before the accident you had promised me a car.
Al: Honey, you might not remember this but, mommy is the vegetable in the family. Although maybe not the only one.
The title refers to the 1975 movie, The Stepford Wives.
