* 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.

* In the "Married... with Prom Queen" two-parter, Al and Peg run into their old rivals at a reunion. It gets to their high-school reunion, the point where Al and two now being married. 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. Later, the entire class (sans Peg) leaving to watch. After much noise outside, Jack walks back in, disleveled and bruised, but smiling... only to collapse in smiling. He then falls over just before a heap. Cue Al walks back in triumphant.
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!


Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

* 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.

* In the seventh season episode "Movie Show", on her birthday, Kelly breaks off a date with her boyfriend (played by [[{{Series/Angel}} David]] [[{{Bones}} Boreanaz]]) so that she can go to the movies with her family (which she was reluctant to do - as were they, in fact). She finds her boyfriend with another girl, but she seems to take it well... until she rejoins the rest of her family.

* In season 4's "The Agony of De-Feet," Al thinks he's going to be judging a beauty contest, and Bud thinks he slept with Marcy. Bud's sitting on the couch when Al gets home. Bud, without looking, holds his hand up, and Al, without looking, slaps it as he walks by. It turns out neither of the things that made them so happy is true, but that rare moment of triumph, from both at the same time, was awesome.

** Then, he tops it off by taking the tray of sugar that the wench had always put in her tea,to dump in her gas tank, a promise he had made to himself when he was 8.

* In "The Unnatural", Al has had a rough time of it, so he is replaced by his baseball team with a younger, stronger player. However, before the championship game is over, Marcy the Umpire (constantly trying to spice up her calls with movement) accidentally slugs the new player and knocks him out cold. The team has no one else to fill in, so Al milks that they now need him - first making Peg, Kelly and Bud sing his praises. At bat, he purposefully racks up two strikes, but then points to the outfield ''à la'' Babe Ruth. He hits a winning homerun, but refuses to cross the plate until he gives a Lou Gehrig-type speech.
