 but she drops the idea at the last minute and does something slightly more 
 exciting (and erotic).  Also, Al gives the Bundy credo as: "When one Bundy
 is embarrassed, the rest of us feel better about ourselves."  We also find

 Marcy Vosburgh & Sandy Sprung 

 Peg will buy anything at a yard sale.  When she brings home a boar's 
 head and there is no more room in the garage to put it, Al decides 
 enough is enough and he resolves to have a yard sale of their own 
 despite Peggy's protests.  Unfortunately, these are items that nobody 
 but Peg would be stupid enough to buy.  Al's next idea is to create 
 "Bundyland: the happiest place on Earth".
