The Stepford Peg is the 10th episode of season 11 of Married... with Children and the 245th overall series episode. Directed by Amanda Bearse and written by Valerie Ahern & Christian McLaughlin, it premiered on FOX-TV on January 6, 1997.
After Peggy gets amnesia, Al reprograms her. The result is a woman who cooks, cleans and even accepts a ring girl when Al invites the guys over to watch wrestling.
Al wants to throw the biggest get together with his friends at the house. Unfortunately, he tries to enlist Peg to help him out. She refuses and trips when he leaves. When she wakes up with amnesia, Al reprograms her into the perfect housewife that cooks and cleans for him. While he, the kids and the No MA'AM members enjoy the new, hardworking and tidy Peg, Marcy prefers the mean, rude and sloppy Peg and tries to change her back but fails. When Al and Peg are trying to have sex, her memory comes back and she makes him have sex again as a punishment.
- Peggy: Am I in hell?
- Al: No Peg, if you were in hell, you'd be on the throne and the devil would be packing.
- The episode title was inspired by the movie "The Stepford Wives".
- Another plot inspiration comes from the 1987 movie Overboard, starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.
