The D'Arcy Files is the 20th episode of season 8 of Married... with Children, also the 177th overall series episode. Directed by Gerry Cohen and written by Ilunga Adell, it premiered on FOX-TV on March 20, 1994.


Al is offered $50,000 dollars to reveal the identity of Jefferson, who, evidence suggests, is a rogue/former spy.


Jefferson reveals his secret past to Marcy when he tells her that he is a ex-CIA spy in a witness relocation program. Meanwhile, Al gets conflicting emotions when he is offered a $50,000 reward by a certain Walter Trogget, a shady thug who is looking for Jefferson. Elsewhere, Peggy has a toothache from a broken tooth, and Kelly and Bud dress up as bums at the mall to get more cash for themselves. The night of Marcy's April Fool's Party, Jefferson walks into the Bundy house and overhears the announcer saying that Al is paging Trogget during the baseball game, causing Jefferson to lock the doors and "take out" Al as he believes Al turned him in. Al falls to the floor and begs for his life as Jefferson reveals it all to be an April's Fools joke (as he is not really a spy and Trogget is an old friend of the D'Arcy family). Jefferson tells Al that if he was really a spy, he would have taken out Trogget. As Al and Jefferson leave for the party, Jefferson hears on TV that Trogget has suffered a fatal accident during the game and blows his party horn in excitement before leaving.
