* UltimateJobSecurity: The way Al insults the fat women who come into the shoe store would have gotten him fired many times over in RealLife, but he manages to keep his job anyway.
** Well, who else would want it?
** And Gary (his boss) has stated that she wouldn't fire Al because he'd make more money on unemployment.
** This is given a couple twists in the show's last ChristmasEpisode. Gary fires Al and Griff in favor of younger counterparts, who work much harder. However, those guys end up quitting when Al mocks them for heading down the exact same path he did. Gary has no choice but to rehire Al and Griff.

** Explained by Al to Kelly and Bud: "She's not a Bundy by blood, she's a Bundy by marriage. She's PART of the curse." Which means the kids come to a sad realization...

* EveryoneHasStandards: Al tends to be {{Squick}}ed out by Bud's rubber sex dolls and the fact that Bud masturbates instead of scoring with a real woman. Goes hand in hand with AManIsNotAVirgin. He also vehemently objects to Bud dating his forty-year-old teacher, suggesting [[JailBait that would be beneath his standards to him too.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BigSisterBully: To Bud. She's also not above having her many group of friends bully him as well.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Jerkass}}: DependingOnTheWriter, she can come off as a bitch rather than her more traditional (and funnier) dumb and slutty personas.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Fanboy}}: Of music and theatre plays.


Added DiffLines:

* SlobsVersusSnobs: He and Marcy's (initial) relationship with the Bundys.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInJerkass: Perhaps because of cracks that were in the marriage to begin with (or the bad influences of Al and Peg), he becomes more snarky, critical and unloving towards Marcy. Upon his many returns (especially after Marcy told him it was over for good), the two of them are outright rivals.
