No Chicken, No Check was the sixth episode of Season 8 of Married... with Children, also the 163rd overall episode of the series. Directed by Tony Singletary and writen by Ralph R. Farquhar, the episode originally on FOX, premiering on October 10, 1993.


Kelly and Bud buy a new car, but end up having to share it when Bud dates a foreign exchange student while Kelly dates a commercial actor. Meanwhile, Al insures the car as a farm vehicle, and in order to collect in case of an accident, there must be a chicken in the car.


Convinced they can share, Kelly and Bud pool their money together so they can buy a car for themselves, which both want, but neither will surrender, for a time alone in the car with their drive-in movie dates. Meanwhile, Al is happy after he bullies Peggy into buying him some meat from the supermarket.
