Guest StarsEdit


  • Kelly: You know mom, when I grow up, I wanna be just like you. I wanna do nothing. I wanna be nothing.



  • The title refers to Kelly being proud of Peggy for inspiring other students at Mother-Daughter Career Day.


  • Julie Condra, who plays Becky in this episode, would later reappear on MWC in the season 8 episode, Valentine's Day Massacre as Crystal Brooks.
  • Teri Weigel, who plays Jade in this episode, was the Playboy centerfold for April, 1986.
  • Al reveals that he works on commission, stating that on a $20 sale, his commission is $1.97 and then after taxes, social security and Peggy, he earns a whole nickel for himself.
  • Peggy's couch, table and remote control are in the classroom, though it is never explained how they were able to move it there and back to the Bundy household.


  • Peggy and the kids sing a modified version of "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen", an African-American spiritual song that was made famous by Louis Armstrong.



  • Bundy Living Room/Kitchen
  • High School Classroom
  • Shoe Store


  • When Bud is at the shoe store with Al, right after Bud says something about the woman with chicken wings, you see the flash from a camera.
  • This episode takes place in the winter and there is tons of snow on the ground, yet Jade, the woman in the shoe store comes in dressed like it's summer.
  • Who helped Peggy and Kelly bring the couch, coffee table and other items to the school and then back home? Al was at work with Bud and you would need a truck to move the couch and table, which Al doesn't have. Plus, there is no way Peggy and Kelly carried the couch all the way to school and home in the snow no less.
  • It seems kind of odd for Bud to keep losing his jackets during the winter, which is the time you really need one, especially in Chicago.
