* From "So This Is How [[Music/FrankSinatra Sinatra]] Felt": Jessica Hahn[[note]]a model and actress best known for her sex scandal with televangelist, Jim Bakker, in the 1980s. Hahn was also the wife of ''MarriedWithChildren'' co-creator, Ron Leavitt, until Leavitt died in 2008[[/note]] made a guest appearance as an amazingly hot "shoe groupie" who was obsessed with Al and wanted nothing more than to have amazing sex with him. Al says no. Repeatedly, but he doesn't understand why. When he tells Peg about it, she says, "It's because you really do love me". His response? "[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Oh my God]], that ''is'' it!"

Added DiffLines:

* As cited above, the very fact that no matter how much they may have tormented each other, any outsider who dared to mess with them had hell to pay--in the "Labor Day" episode when they're stuck in traffic and bitching at each other, Al tries to cheer them up by singing, which of course, only makes things worse. But when a guy in another car yells at Al to shut up, the rest of them instantly join in with the singing. Things escalate until they're all fighting their counterparts in the other family.

* In an episode where a Peeping Tom has been making his way through the neighborhood, spying on everyone--''twice''--except for Peggy, leaving her feeling undesirable. Al tries to restore her self-esteem by disguising himself as the peeper. Unfortunately, it gets him caught and beat up by the enraged group of vigilante women who've been victimized by the guy. After Al gets out of the hospital, Peggy sweetly thanks him for trying to make her feel better.

* There's a quick one in "A Taxing Problem". Al can't bring himself to cut off Peg's hair, even though [[ItMakesSenseInContext doing so will get him the money he needs to get out of trouble with the IRS.]]

* Then ending of the Season 6 "pregnancy" arc, in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72h-izRDNpg "Al Bundy: Shoe Dick."]] A meta-example: Al wakes up after [[spoiler: a season-long dream. As noted elsewhere, RealLifeWritesThePlot in that Katey Sagal had been pregnant and the pregnancy was written in, then she had a late-term miscarriage. When Al wakes up and finds out she's not pregnant]] Peggy comes out of the bathroom and beams at Al. She says "You had $50,000, and yet you still came home to me. That shows you really do love me." They then proceed to banter cutely, and Peg snuggles up to Al, who puts an arm around her. As a viewer, you get the feeling that it's the actors, not just the characters, and Ed O'Neill is showing Katey Sagal some warmth after a very difficult loss.

** And as the guy collapses, Peg looks up at Al with this utterly adoring, grateful smile. You can just tell she's thinking, "That's my guy."

* After the show had ended, Ed O'Neill (Al) visited on the set where Christina Applegate (Kelly) was filming an episode of ''Jesse'' without her knowing, pretending to be someone who opened the door for her in the scene. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVygOBHV3HY "Where have you been, young lady?!"]] The surprise nearly brought Christina to [[TearJerker tears]].

** Also during that episode, Al has been invited to speak at the dance to present an award. Instead, he uses to the opportunity to go on a lengthy tirade against marriage. However, after spotting a teacher repeatedly hitting on Peg, Al hits him in the head with the microphone.

* For all their snarking and snapping at each other, Kelly has at least two [[BigBrotherInstinct big sister]] moments where she warns Bud of a girl's bad intentions. In "What Goes Around Came Around," Bud doesn't listen and ends up humiliated, but rather than ditching Bud, Kelly takes out her revenge on the girl in question by stripping her down to a towel, chaining her to a wall of lockers with a banner that reads, "DON'T MESS WITH A BUNDY!", and tying the towel to a rope attached to Buck's leash. Kelly then calls Buck to her just as school starts and everyone enters.
