Unlike many other sitcoms with the father-in-law usually disapproving of the husband who married his daughter, Peggy's father approves of Al so much that he held a gun to Al's head to force him to follow through on the marriage. She then worked as a model and waitress. By the eighth season, the Dodge had passed one million miles.
Jefferson tends to be very encouraging and attuned to Al's behavior. Bud tries to boast himself to be attractive, sexy, and smooth, but is frequently caught in the most horribly sexually humiliating scenarios.
In one episode that aired in "The D'Arcy Files" a man approaches Al in his shoe shop to inform him that Jefferson was in fact an ex-spy, and offers Al a hefty reward for turning him in which he doesn't take. To accommodate the real-life pregnancy of Katey Sagal, it was decided that Peg Bundy would also have a baby.

Like Al, she would never cheat on her partner but unlike Al, she greatly desires marital sex despite constantly complaining about Al's lack of endurance and Al's general antipathy for "having sex with the wife". This raunchy, ribald eleven-year saga of a boorish, dysfunctional family living in the outskirts of Chicago was about as far removed from The Cosby Show as Mercury is from Pluto -- which was just fine so far as its creators, Ron Leavitt and Michael Moye, were concerned.
Al's favorite television series, the fictional Western show Psycho Dad, was a source of joy and entertainment that Al seemingly, at times, wanted to emulate. Al chooses to live his life vicariously through Aaron, until his misguided advice accidentally drives the boy to a shrewish woman named "Meg" a young copy of Peg and the same dismal fate which had befallen Al.
Marcy was married to Steve Rhoades, another banker, for a few years but they ended up getting a divorce. A year later Marcy met and got married to Jefferson D'Arcy, a former spy who had various jobs, but he preferred being a house husband.9/10(K).
