And Baby Makes Money

Published on

In the episode “And Baby Makes Money”, Al Bundy’s bachelor Uncle Stymie dies and leaves a proviso in his will: whoever sires the first Bundy baby boy in wedlock after the reading gets the entire estate of $500,000. Al is ecstatic but Peg has other plans that she confides to Marcy: she’s taking birth-control pills to milk as much intimacy as possible out of her unwitting husband. In a hilarious montage, nine months fly by as Al grows emaciated and his hair turns white while Peg is having all the fun…until Al finds her pills. Not content to just confront her directly, Al fakes a positive pregnancy test and gives Peg a shock.
