** It wasn't deliberate. the AllJustADream portion of the season was a hasty retcon done by the writers because Katey Sagal suffered a miscarriage and they, out of respect, didn't want to force her to wear a fake belly and act with a baby.

* Seven appearing on the milk carton was obviously a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]], but in-universe, this means Seven just went missing one day and nobody cares about finding him! (And no, this isn't FridgeHorror, since that term implies that somebody out there would be horrified by the idea of [[TheScrappy Seven]] going missing.)

* In their first Christmas episode from season 2, "You Better Watch Out", after the Santa Claus [[spoiler: who accidentally fell to his death]] is taken away, his bundle of mall certificates fall off the roof and the Bundys soon take the whole bundle with them to spend for themselves for Christmas. Not only do the merchants at the mall have the right to refuse the family to use all of the certificates, but even worse, upon realizing that the guy they hired as Santa is [[spoiler: dead, they could be accused of killing him just to steal his money!]]

* FridgeBrilliance: Bud is often established as being plenty smart (though his ButtMonkey status means he can't actually succeed with anything), so why is Kelly so dense? A flashback in one episode revealed that Kelly ''was'' extremely smart as a child before bumping her head in a car trip. The occasional GeniusDitz moments she has are the signs of her pre-brain damage potential.

* "If You Could See Me Now" shows Al getting glasses because his eyesight is shockingly bad, a plot point contradicted by any number of previous episodes. However, this episode takes place in Season 6, the AllJustADream season, so of course it goes off continuity - it probably did so deliberately!

* In season 11, ep. 10, when Peggy gets amnesia, Al eventually becomes interested in her again by the end of the episode, and quickly went back to being disgusted by her when she regained her memory. This implies that Al doesn’t fing Peggy so repulsive because of her looks (frankly, Katie Segal is a very good-looking woman), but because of her repulsive personality.
* It was heavily implied that Al was a major jerk and asshole in high school. The 'Bundy Curse' and his status as an eternal loser, are Karmic justice for that behavior. Al ensures his status in life never changes by continuing to act like a jerk. The more he lashes out about his crappy lot in life, the worse his life is.

** Sounds more like FridgeHorror. Also, due to constant ContinuitySnarl, this point is a bit moot, as later on it was established that Bud developed much faster than she did.
