* KangarooCourt: Naturally, this happened to Al in an episode (on his birthday, no less, where, among other things, Peg ''promised'' she would not bother him for sex, and intended to keep that promise), where a group of overweight women took over his shoe store and put him on trial for him insulting them over the years. (In ClipShow format.) It got even more twisted when Peg showed up; at first she reluctantly admitted she sympathized with them (his fat jokes directed towards her mother had been kind of mean) but eventually, she started to find them just as bad as he did. While they found him guilty at first, Al got them to "pardon" him by confessing that he had a FreudianExcuse for insulting them, saying he was overweight as a child and had been teased just as much. [[spoiler:After they left, he told Peg that he was lying about that to get rid of them.]] One good thing did come out of this; while Peg was still intent on keeping her promise, Al told her that after having to look at them all day, she didn't look all too bad right now, leading to a rare moment of intimacy between them. (Well, as best the show could do.)

** This also happened to Buck after he passed away. He was put into a heavenly court to determine his fate, where he knew he was doomed because the judge was a cat and his defense attorney was a mouse who was quickly eaten by the cat. Buck is ultimately sentenced to be [[FateWorseThanDeath reincarnated as the Bundy's new dog, Lucky.]]

** Kelly is cheated on by a guy, on her birthday, as she discovers him on another date at the same movie theater the Bundys have gone to. At first, Kelly tries to act mature and pretend she is not bothered by this when she talks to him. As soon as she sits down with the rest of her family, she says, "Daddy, beat him up". ''Without hesitation'', Al says, "Of course, pumpkin". He then walks up to the guy and beats the crap out of him. Earlier in the episode, he beat up a guy and took his popcorn for talking bad about Peggy.

* ActingForTwo: Done several times:
** Katey Sagal played both Peggy and the Grim Reaper, doing the latter role without her red wig;
** Amanda Bearse played both Marcy and Marcy's lesbian cousin Mandy;
** David Faustino played both Bud and [[ItMakesSenseInContext Bud's "cool side";]]
** Ed O'Neill played both Al and the ghost of Al's father.



* HideYourPregnancy: Katey Sagal's first pregnancy was written into Season Six but had to be retconned as a dream after she miscarried. When Sagal subsequently became pregnant again, the writers had Peggy sitting down behind tables before eventually sending her off on trips and only make voice appearances or in brief inserts so that Sagal wouldn't be placed under undue stress.

* PassedOverInheritance: [[InvertedTrope Inverted.]] Al threatens to put his kids in the Bundy Will if they do something wrong, which means they would inherit all of Al's debts when he passes away. Needless to say, the kids react with horror when he makes this threat.

Added DiffLines:

* SummationGathering: Parodied, as with many other detective tropes, in the NoirEpisode "Al Bundy, Shoe Dick". After Al has been [[FrameUp framed for the murder]] of an old rich man, he gathers the man's family and ends up accusing all of them of being the real murderer. His reasoning is either non-existent or hilariously faulty (like accusing a man with two hook hands of holding the murder weapon, or a retarded man of being a criminal mastermind), until he does prove himself with a bit of deductive logic that the FemmeFatale did it.

--> '''Al:''' Ladies, it's not the dress that makes you look fat, it's ''the fat'' that makes you look fat!\\\
'''Al:''' A woman came into the shoe store today, she was so fat, she had 4 smaller fat women orbiting her.

--> '''Al:''' Ladies, Don't put on a dress and then ask us if it makes you look fat; we hate that. Besides, it's not the dress that makes you look fat, it's ''the fat'' the ''fat'' that makes you look fat!\\\
