[a very drunk Al is passed out at the Santa Bar]
Al Bundy: It was all worth it... it was all worth it...
Bartender: Hey, wake up buddy. It's closing time. Five o'clock.
Al Bundy: Oh, I was dreaming. I gave my son breasts.
Bartender: That's a very cool dream, sir.
Al Bundy: Well, uh... how much do I owe you for all these beers?
Bartender: Nothing. You already paid... for everybody. Well you were unconscious, and the other Santas lifted your wallet while you were out. But I figured that you wanted to pay for all of them, you being Santa and all.

Santa Al!
11 December 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

When the family decides to get jobs, Al couldn't be more happier but the jobs are all for him including working as the mall Santa Claus and dealing with the kids and Mrs. D'Arcy who has a sing-a-long to remember regarding Al Bundy's life. He goes to the Santa Bar where he insults an elf. The bar has a no elves policy. He almost gets into a fight with volunteer Santa who say "If you do good for others, you will get back ten-fold." One of the other Santas holds Al back and jokes "You can't help it, he pushed you." Anyway, Al finally has the money to buy them nice presents like breasts for Bud, a watch for Peggy, a television for Kelly so she never has to read, a bike for Seven, and nothing for Buck as usual. This episode features a flashback to when the family was younger except the kids just act younger.
