Here's Lookin' at You, Kid is the 22nd episode of Season 3 of Married...With Children, also the 57th overall series episode. Also the Season 3 finale, the episode originally aired on FOX on August 27, 1989, right before the season four premiere (even though it was taped as the final episode of season three). Directed by Gerry Cohen, the episode was written by Jeanne Baruch & Jeanne Romano & Len O'Neill.

SynopsisEdit

The neighborhood women become the targets of a Peeping Tom — except for Peg, who takes it as a sign that she's not attractive anymore. Meanwhile, Al convinces Bud to help Kelly with her studies.

Full episode summaryEdit

When a serial peeper is on the loose, Al makes the ultimate sacrifice to alleviate Peggy's despair about being the only one not fall victim. Bud must tutor Kelly so she can pass to the next grade; unfortunately in order to make room, new information pushes out old, basic knowledge.

NotesEdit

TitleEdit

  • This episode's title is a quote from the film, Casablanca.

TriviaEdit

  • Bud mentions to Al that due to Kelly's limited capacity to retain information, she looses basic information to obtain the new knowledge. Eventually, she forgets who Al is, confuses Bud for Buck Bundy and doesn't recognize the sound of a doorbell. This issue would later be seen again in the season 8 finale, "Kelly Knows Something" when Al tries to teach Kelly about sports trivia.
  • One of the neighborhood women, Fifi, is played by Luann Lee, who was the Playboy's Playmate of the Month for January 1987.
  • Peggy points out that Kelly is currently a junior in high school and then officially becomes a senior at the very end of the episode.
  • Bud points out its their last week in school, indicating that Bud is a freshman at Polk High School.
  • It is revealed that Al and Peggy have sex about once a month and it last for 30 seconds.
  • Kelly confuses Theory of Relativity with being related to Al and Peggy.
  • This is the only appearance of their neighbor Mrs. McGinty. The McGintys have been mentioned several times throughout the show.
  • The blue blouse and black pants that Peggy wears at the end of the episode is the same outfit she wears for the season 4 opening credits.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • Kelly confuses U.S. President Thomas Jefferson with George Jefferson from the TV series The Jeffersons, mixing up various facts about them:
    • Kelly claims that Thomas Jefferson was a renaissance man, stating that he was both an architect and the owner of a dry cleaner.
      • George Jefferson was the owner of several successful dry cleaners in New York City, while Thomas Jefferson was known to have mastered many disciplines such as classical architecture, painting, linguistics and horticulture aside from his career in law and politics.
    • Kelly sings The Jeffersons theme song, "Movin' On Up" after telling Al and Peg about Thomas Jefferson, claiming he wrote it on the back of the Declaration of Independence.
      • Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the document.
    • Kelly tells Al and Peg that Thomas Jefferson's wife was black, mistaking her for Louise "Weezy" Jefferson.
      • Though it is believed that following the death of his wife, Thomas Jefferson did have children with one of his slaves, Sally Hemings who was partially black.
    • MWC creators Ron Leavitt and Michael G. Moye were producers for The Jeffersons during its run.
  • Bud tries to suggests that he could teach Kelly "Shakespeare The Friendly Ghost" or "I Dream of Lincoln". in reference to the television series Casper The Friendly Ghost and I Dream of Jeannie, English playwright William Shakespeare and U.S. President Abraham Lincoln.
  • Al mentions that he watches the television series Get Smart.

MusicEdit

  • Kelly and Bud sing "Movin' On Up", which was the theme song for the sitcom The Jeffersons.
  • Peg sings "Love For Sale" by Cole Porter while in the bathroom as Al tries to peep her.

LocationsEdit

SetsEdit

  • Bundy Living Room / Kitchen
  • Al and Peggy's Bedroom

GoofsEdit

  • Peggy mentions the first night that she left a ladder for the peeper. However that ladder can only be seen the second time, when Al peeps her.
  • Al is standing on a ladder outside his own bedroom window pretending to be a peeping Tom. Peg pushes the ladder back and Al falls. Had they really been on the second floor, Al's fall would have made a very wide arc, due to the height of the ladder. Instead, Al falls back immediately in a tight arc, revealing that the prop ladder he's actually on is only a few feet tall.
