Marcy: But unlike evolution, I'm not letting you off the hook, Al. Now can you tell me what a woman's body has to do with selling beer?
Al: All right, number one - if it wasn't for beer, there would be at least three people, who probably wouldn't be married - Me, Jefferson, and probably Lisa Marie Presley. Number two - since men buy beer, advertisers have to cater to what we want. And hold on to your corncob pipe - we like pretty women. Pretty women sell beer, ugly women sell tennis rackets. Pretty women - cars; ugly women - minivans. Pretty women make us buy beer, and ugly women make us drink beer.Born on April 12, 1946 to an Irish-Catholic family in Ohio, Edward Leonard "Ed" O'Neill is best known as playing Al Bundy on Married... with Children, or more recently as Jay Pritchett on Modern Family.
