-->'''Marcy''': You fat pig! I work my fingers to the bone for you, I'm a bank manager dammit not your handmaiden. But you appreciate me? No, it's always "Get Me Coffee!", "Write my speech!", "Here comes my wife, pretend Fluffy's with you", well I'm sick of it! And I'm sick of you Vander Doody, I've done a lot of low things for you, but when I meet my maker in a few minutes and when he asks if I've done anything good, I'll say yes, yes I did, yes ''(punches her boss to the cheers of the audience and sits down with Steve)'' I'm ready to die.

* Al converts his garage into his own person man-cave, using tools that belonged to his father (including a hammer that Al had special attachment to). He then drops the news on his family, and is willing to defend the place to his death.

* In "The Computer Show", Al repeatedly fails to train Buck to fetch his slippers, and he has to pay for an expensive computer the family wanted but won't use. Worse, when they're alone, the computer mocks him. When he can't take it anymore, Al leaves for the garage and comes back... with a sledgehammer. After smashing the computer, Al turns to Buck, saying, "Now about those slippers." Buck quickly runs off and returns with the slippers.

* The climax of the episode "Damn Bundys", which involves Al selling his soul to Satan and ending up in Hell, followed by the rest of his family, and then Marcy and Jeffersson, has the cast taking on Satan's LegionOfDoom in a touch football game (consisting of Genghis Khan, Brutus, Eric The Red, Attila The Hun and Goliath). To no surprise, they get their asses handed to them at first, becoming increasingly demoralized. However, in a last ditch effort, the cast manages to evade Satan's team through trickery (Bud even takes down Goliath using a classic stone sling), and Al is about to score the winning field goal... only for Satan to freeze time and offer to send him back to Earth without his family, along with three gorgeous demon girls, if he forfeits the goal. Al briefly considers it... [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachother only to shrug and catch the ball, sending him and his family back to Earth]]. Al wakes up in his living room, clutching can of Pringles instead of the football, the episode seemingly AllJustADream... except in his pocket, [[OrWasItADream he finds the Red Hots Satan gave him before]].

* One episode sees the Bundys stuck on the freeway in traffic. Al tries to bolster their spirits with an annoying song, only for a father in a nearby car to start cussing him out. First, everyone joins in the song just to further irritate the guy, but when he doesn't stop threatens to get violent, Al says "[[TranquilFury Peg, take the wheel]]" and gets out. The other man continues trash talking, and Al uses the opportunity to grab him by the throat and ''pummel him against the hood of the Dodge.'' Peg and the man's wife get out and try to get them to stop...but the other woman [[BerserkButton makes a fatal mistake]] when she calls Al a "moron." Cue Peg backhanding the woman to kingdom come, and beginning her ''own'' brawl. The man's family leaps out of the car to help, but Kelly and Bud are ready for them: Kelly takes out the daughter with a series of mean right hooks, while Bud treats the son to a few patented Bundy piledrivers.

* In the "Married... with Prom Queen" two-parter, Al and Peg run into their old rivals at a reunion. It gets to the point where Al and Jack go outside and duke it out with everyone else watching. Later, Jack walks back in smiling. He then falls over just before Al walks back in triumphant.
** Peg also gets a Crowning Moment of her own when she uses the distraction provided by Al to fix the vote for Reunion Queen in her favor, beating out her own hated rival, who just happens to be Jack's wife.

Al's rival Jack go outside was Al's high school arch enemy, and duke it out the two were going to have a fight to determine who was the better man on graduation day, but Al got injured in a stupid stunt and the fight never happened, so the two decide to finally settle things at the reunion, with everyone else watching.

walking in, the victor, cheered on by his former classmates.
** Peg also gets a Crowning Moment of her own when she uses the distraction provided by Al to fix the vote for Reunion Queen in her favor, beating out her own hated rival, who just happens to be Jack's wife. The two share a dance together as the Prom King and Queen (interupted only by Al's complaints about the injuries he got in the fight).
** They're not established characters, but you have to give props to the nerd clique from Al's school. Al and his friends notice them sitting at their own table and making fun of them... only for the camera to cut over and show that they're now extremely wealthy and successfull, with gorgeous women hanging all over them.
--> '''Nerd''': Should have done your own homework, guys!

* Another case where Peg gets her comeuppance is in "A Three Job, No Income Family," where Peg gets a job as a cosmetics saleswoman and is bringing home big commission checks. Al, desperate to regain his status as the family's main breadwinner, gets a second job at [[BurgerFool Burger Trek]] to make more money. However, Al later finds out that Peg is the only one buying her cosmetics, which means she's spending more money than she's making in commissions, sending the family deeper into debt. Al says there's only one thing to do... and makes Peg get a job at Burger Trek.
