Scene exceprtsEdit


(playing a board game, Al has to tell what he cares about)

  • Al: I Care, by Al Bundy. When hooters jiggle around and I find nickels on the ground, I care. When a Mustang engine purrs and the bathroom is not hers, I care. When the pitcher's on the mound and the wife is underground, I care. But when I've been playing this for days, I will kill anyone who stays. I swear.

  • Biff: S-say Kara, you're cute.
  • Kara: Thank you. You're cute too. The second I saw you I knew we were going to have sex.

  • Kara: You're so brave Grandmaster B. You're all I ever wanted in a man. My last boyfriend was so boring. All we did was make love.
  • Bud: What a loser.

(thinking to himself)

  • Bud: I'm definitely not doing this. No way, no how, never.

(he glances hard at Kara's cleavage; still thinking)

  • Bud: Oh man. Look at those hooters!


  • Bud: I'm doing it.

  • Al: Middle-aged woman comes into the shoe store. She's wearing a Blossom hat, you know, the "I'm just a cute young girl of 45" look, and she's looking for something cool to wear to a Crosby, Stills & Nash reunion concert. So I suggest a nice recyclable paper bag to put over her face, you know, so she can save the planet two ways. So she maces me. But as I lash out blindly, I think I clipped her a good one in the teeth. So, from now on it looks like she'll be gumming the words to Teach Your Children

  • Bud: I'm totally done with women.
  • Al: What? What, did you get married?

  • Kara: Oh B, thank you for not hurting my father.
  • Bud: Well, from the fetal position, I can kill in three different ways.

  • Kara: I booked us on a rafting trip down a river the Indians used to call "kiss your white ass goodbye"

  • Kelly: There I am at the mall and this guy, some geezer rock star, steps on my foot. You know, that Springsteen guy.
  • Al: The Boss?
  • Kelly: I don't think so, Daddy. His wife seemed to be the one in charge.
