* 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. 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.

When he loses the new job and returns to his old one, he finds out ''nobody'' applied for it.

* TheChewToy

to:

* TheChewToyTheChewToy: Some episodes have ended with him horribly injured and covered in bandages.



* SpannerInTheWorks: His Dr. Shoe idea ends up being a catalyst to Steve and Marcy breaking up. Steve gave Al the first loan and ultimately got fired for it, which infuriated Marcy. Thing is, Steve ended up liking not having a job, which made Marcy even angrier.



* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent: Al admits in "Grime and Punishment" that he always felt this way about Bud. They had ogling women in common, but Bud's aptitude for school made it hard to relate otherwise. However, in the cited episode, Bud manages to force Al to live in the basement until he makes needed repairs and gets help from the other characters to annoy him into giving in. When it's all over, Al is actually proud of Bud for acting like a true Bundy.



* EightiesHair

to:

* EightiesHairEightiesHair: Oddly, for a show that started in the '80s, her hair actually became more pronounced after that decade was over. It was far more subdued in the first season.



* OnlySaneMan

to:

* OnlySaneManOnlySaneMan: Downplayed. He is easily the sanest member of the family, but he still has lots of quirks that make him odd.



* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: In one episode, he is sick of being ignored and not fed, so he runs away to make a point. He's immediately captured by the dog catcher and his absence goes unnoticed until right before the seven day waiting period. Buck recognizes he has only himself to blame for this mess, as (once he's found and brought home) he takes being ignored in stride.



* DropInCharacter: Often hanging around the Bundy house with Peg. It got to the point where Amanda Bearse's credit in the opening titles eventually involved her either having the door slammed in her face or just barging right in.



* HenpeckedHusband

to:

* HenpeckedHusbandHenpeckedHusband: He starts out on fairly even terms with Marcy. As she became more shrill, he became more subservient.
