Married with Children Wiki

Lionel "Lonnie" Tot is a character who appears in the final two Season 11 episodes of Married... with Children, "The Desperate Half-Hour (Part 1)" and "How to Marry a Moron (Part 2)". The part of Lonnie is played by Chip Esten.


When Starla (Tricia Cast), who is Bud's pen-pal from prison, and her boyfriend Lonnie pay a visit to the Bundy household they take the family hostage. In the process of Starla, who's really escaped from prison, holding up Al for ransom, Kelly ends up falling in love with Lonnie. In his new found passion for Kelly, Lonnie manages to wrestle the gun from Starla, as it goes off and hits Al... or, more correctly his shoehorn, which was, luckily for him, in his shirt pocket!

After the police let him loose after his ex-girlfriend Starla tried to hold the Bundys and the D'Arcys hostage, Lonnie returns to the Bundy home to ask permission to take Kelly's hand in marriage as he pleads to Al: "Sir, l may not be the smartest man in the world or the most successful but l love your daughter and l would give my life for her!" Al, then not enamored with the seemingly honest, but dim-witted Lonnie, who's a mechanic, then sarcastically answers, "Deal!" as he then tries to strangle him! When he says, "Your father tried to strangle me!" to Kelly, she tries to save face by making up the explanation "Well, that's just how we show affection!", as he then dim-wittedly returns the favor to Al, almost strangling him!

When Al discovers that the diamond ring that Lonnie presents Kelly isn't fake, but a real cubic zirconia, he also learns that Lonnie is an heir to Earl Tot, the owner of Weenie Tots, namely, the owner's son, which makes him change his tune about the lad, as he begins to see dollar signs! However, Al's hopes are dashed when it's revealed that Lonnie, who admits to Al that he's at The Jiggly Room every Friday night, has a roving eye. Al catches him with four strippers there at The Jiggly Room as he then steals his lap dance as well as all the attention from the girls, and then later just moments before Kelly and Lonnie's wedding reception is about to begin as Lonnie, whose hormones seem to be in overdrive, tries to make a move on Marcy D'Arcy, who slaps his face!

During the wedding, Al eventually steps in and stops it from proceeding further after getting word about what Lonnie did to Marcy and also reveals that he saw Lonnie at the Jiggly Room. Despite this, Lonnie's parents don't see what the issue is and simply write it off as Lonnie being "fickle". Kelly seems upsets about hearing this, and even more so when Lonnie reveals that he is still actually married and has multiple wives (as well as his parents, who are also involved with other people outside of their marriage). Lonnie eventually apologizes for not telling Kelly about this and asks if she would reconsider becoming a Tot, but she tells him that she would rather just be a Bundy.

Lonnie and the rest of his family are then seen leaving the house with his sister, Tatum Tot, who blows a kiss to Bud.
