Al’s Porn Star

BACKGROUND

“Married . . . with children” was a popular sitcom that ran for 11 seasons from 1987 to 1997. There were 259 episodes. One of the longest running live-action sitcoms on TV. It was remade in 8 foreign countries. It ended 19 years ago, but is still in syndication.

It was fun watching the Bundy children grow up, especially Kelly (Christina Applegate). Christina’s latest films were the ‘Anchorman’ movies.

CAST  and   CHARACTERS

AL BUNDY: Hen-pecked, suffering husband of Peggy. He has a poor paying job  selling women’s shoes at the Mall. His greatest accomplishment was four touchdowns in a single game back in Polk High School. He always tries to avoid sex with Peggy.

PEGGY BUNDY:   Al’s big haired, red headed wife. Can’t clean or cook but spends her time on the couch eating bonbons and watching Oprah. Spends all of Al’s earnings on shoes and clothes. Al Married Peggy when her backwoods hillbilly family stuck a shot gun in his face and said: “Marry our little girl or die.” Al has regretted his choice.

KELLY BUNDY:  The oldest child, who grew into a sexy, bleached blond, bombshell with a bad taste in boyfriends. Promiscuous but lovingly dumb. Berates her younger brother Bud, but protects him when needed. Wears slutty clothes.

BUD BUNDY:   Youngest child, and a genius compared to the rest of the family.  Bud is a complete failure with girls. Kelly tries to help but he always screws up.

MARCY D’ARCY:  A next door neighbor, and friend of Peggy.  Al and Marcy hate each other. She calls him a Neanderthal. He calls her a ‘Chicken’ and pretends she’s a boy.

JEFFERSON D’ARCY:  A pretty-boy scam artist. Marcy wakes up one morning and finds that she is married to him. Jefferson takes advantage of Marcy. When caught he openly seduces her, which drives her wild with lust; all anger forgotten.

TERI LOVELY: A beautiful blond porn star. An amalgamation of various porn stars of 20 years ago. I decide to build a show around her in contrast to Peggy Bundy.

SCENE 1.

INTERIOR OF BUNDY’S LIVING ROOM  (EVENING )

(PEGGY and MARCY are sitting on the couch. KELLY and BUD are at the table)

PEGGY  “And so I told Antwon that I was tired of my old look and to do something with my hair that was completely different. I wanted a NEW me. What do you think Marcy?”  (Peggy’s hair looks EXACTLY the same. )

MARCY “It looks like he’s done wonders for you, Peggy.”

PEGGY “Bud? Does my hair look different to you?”

BUD (Not looking up) “I wouldn’t have recognized you Mom.”

PEGGY “Kelly? Do I look any different to you?”

KELLY “I thought that you were Madonna when you walked in.”

AL (Enters, hangs jacket in the closet, and walks toward the couch)  “You won’t believe what’s happening down at the. . . . . .”

PEGGY (Interrupting) “Al, do I look more attractive to you?”

AL  “I see the same old horse. And  (looking at Marcy)  the same old jockey. As I was saying; You won’t believe what’s happening down at the Mall.”

PEGGY “They’re giving all the shoe salesman a raise?”

AL “Don’t I wish.”

KELLY “I thought you were Madonna when you walked in.”

AL “Why do I even bother to come home?”

PEGGY “Because you love us?”

AL “Yah, sure sure.”   

PEGGY “Well Mr. Grumpy are you going to tell us or not?”

AL “There’s a new video store opening up next to the shoe store and some movie star will be there. There will be balloons, and prizes, and stuff. That means a lot of people will be going by the store.  I’ll sell a lot of shoes.”

PEGGY “Oh sure it does.”

AL “Laugh all you want woman. I’ll sell a million pair.”

BUD “Who is the movie star, Dad?”

AL “I don’t know for sure son. Someone named Teri Lovely or Lonely or Loopy. Something like that. Any way the place will be mobbed. Now Peg, I’m going to have a busy couple of days and I’ll need my strength. So I’m going to bed early and get a good night’s rest to be in top shape tomorrow. Now Peg, you know what that means?”

PEGGY “Oh! Oh! here it comes.”

AL “It means NO SEX, Peg. I want you to stay away from me.”

PEGGY “SO? What else is new?”

AL “Just remember what I said: NO SEX !”

PEGGY “As if I never heard THAT one before.”

Al approaches the door and unlocks it. He flips the ‘CLOSED’ sign over to “OPEN’ Al steps back  waiting for the big rush.

Al is now standing about 2 feet from the door with his body bent forward and the top of his head pressed against the glass. Outside, the Mall is jammed with people.

( the clock reads 4:55 )

Al is slumped in one of the seats with his head in his hands. Outside are people with balloons and streamers.

AL “Oh God !”

FROM THE LEFT OUTSIDE THE WINDOW:

We see a mysterious figure wearing a tan trench coat with the collar turned up and a Fedora hat with the brim pulled down. It’s carrying a small case. The figure slowly inches its way toward Al’s door with it’s back to the glass. The figure backs through the door and sets the case on the display window’s platform.

FIGURE “Excuse me? Can I come in here to rest a minute and catch my breath?” It’s a madhouse out there, and it seems so quiet and peaceful in here.”

AL “Sure you can. It’s quiet alright. That damn Teri took all my customers.”

FIGURE “Oh! I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to ruin your business.”

Al lifts his head from his hands and turns to see TERI LOVELY. Teri drops her coat to the floor takes off her fedora and shakes out her hair. Teri is standing there in a red spaghetti strap dress and red high heels. She’s beautiful! ( Al rushes to the door. )

AL “Oh! Mama!” ( Al takes her hand ) “Come right in and lay down. Make yourself comfortable.”

TERI “Thank you. You’re so kind.”

AL “Think nothing of it” ( Al looks up ) “Thank you Lord!”

Outside people see that Teri is in the shoe store and try to push open the door to get in. All rushes over to the door and closes it in their face.

AL “Go away! Can’t you see we’re closed?”

Al locks the door and puts up the ‘Closed’ sign. 

AL “Sit down and try on a pair of hooters — er — I mean shoes.”

TERI “I really can’t stay too long. I still have to find a hotel for the evening.”

AL (Slowly and carefully) “You mean that you don’t have a place to sleep tonight?”

TERI ‘Yes. I came straight from the airport this morning.”

AL “Maybe … I can … help you out on that.”

TERI “OH! That would be wonderful.”

AL “Why don’t you come home with me?”

TERI “That wouldn’t be right, sir, going home with a strange man all all alone.”

AL “I’m not strange, I’m Al Bundy. Call me Al.”

TERI “I’d  better find a hotel room.”

AL “No! No! It’s OK. You see I’m married and have two lovely children. Not as lovely as you, but that’s a different story. I mean, we would be happy to have you as our house guest.” (Al looking up) “ Oh! Please God!”

TERI “That wouldn’t be fair to your wife. I’m sure that she isn’t prepared  for an extra guest at dinner.”

AL “Don’t worry your pretty little head about that. I know for a fact that she hasn’t even started dinner for tonight … or ever.”

TERI “I’ll tell you what: If you pay for the food I’ll cook everyone a big dinner. That’s the least I can do.”

AL “You mean that you can cook too?”

TERI “Of course! I’m a terrific cook. Also, about your shoes. Tomorrow I’ll tell everyone that I buy my shoes at your store.”

Al takes her hand and goes to the door. He picks up her coat as she picks up her makeup case and hat. Al unlocks the door pushing a few remaining women out of the way.

AL ( Yelling ) “Get out of the way you Harpies! Can’t you see we’re busy?”

FADE IN TO:

Scene 3: THE BUNDY LIVING ROOM.

Peg is on the couch with Marcy. Bud and Kelly are at the table.

PEGGY “Gee, I wonder where Al could be? He’s usually home by now. I hope nothing has happened to him. I used his last Life Insurance payment to buy a new dress. That would be just like Al to leave me a widow with only one good dress.”

MARCY “Look on the bright side, Peggy. At least you WOULD be a widow.”

PEGGY“You’re right, Marcy. Every cloud has a silver lining.”

The front door opens. Al comes in with two bags filled with groceries one in each arm. Teri comes in and stands behind him to his right.

AL “EVERYBODY! Look what I brought home!” ( Looking at Teri )

(Peggy, Bud, and Kelly, ignore Teri and grab the bags from Al’s hand. They start to empty them on the kitchen table.)

PEGGY “OH! look kids, MEAT!!”

BUD “Potatoes! Bread! Cheese!

KELLY “Look Bud eggs! ( She opens the carton and starts to count) “One, two,

three, four, five, er, seven?? Well a whole bunch.”

BUD “Those are a dozen, Kel.”

KELLY “I thought they were eggs?”

BUD “They ARE eggs, you idiot!”

KELLY “But you said they were a dozen?”

BUD Never mind Kel. What matters is, it’s food !”

(Marcy walks over to Al and Teri. She looks Teri up and down. )

MARCY “You call THIS food?”

AL “No, you plucked chicken. This is the movie star, Teri Lovely.”

PEGGY (Seeing Teri for the first time ) Oh, Hello. I didn’t notice you. (Then ignoring her )  Al, all this food must have cost a fortune.”

AL “No Peg. The whole thing only cost 6 bucks. The clerk was so busy looking at Teri that he missed a lot of items.”

TERI “That happens to me a lot.”

PEGGY “That’s all well and good, but what do you expect ME to do with all this?”

TERI “Don’t worry Mrs. Bundy,  I’ll cook us a nice dinner.”

AL ( To Marcy ) Get out of here you chicken, and cook your own dinner.”

TERI “I hope there is enough room in the fridge?”

AL “I wouldn’t worry about that.”

TERI “Now everybody just take it easy. I’ll have everything done in a jiffy.”

Scene 5 THE BUNDY DINING ROOM

The table is loaded with food.

AL “I never thought it could be like this. Steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, Creamed corn, and steaming cups of coffee. Why don’t you ever do this?”

PEGGY “Because I’m not a movie star, like some people. I’m just an Ordinary American Housewife. But don’t get me wrong Teri, I think this is just wonderful. You can stay with us forever.”

BUD “Can we keep her Mom?”

AL “Oh Yes! Peg can we keep her? We can always use an extra pair of hooters — I mean hands — around the house.”

TERI “I’m sorry, Mr. and Mrs. Bundy. I have to be back in Hollywood in two days. I’m starting another picture.”

PEGGY “She’s so polite.”

KELLY “Tell me, Miss Lovely. . . . .”

TERI “Call me Teri.”

KELLY “Tell me Miss Teri, do you think that I would have a chance to be in movies just like you?”

TERI “Kelly I think you are a ’Natural’ “

PEGGY (Excitedly) “What about me? What about me?”

TERI “Like mother like daughter, Mrs. Bundy. They would eat you up.”

PEGGY “Oh, I’m so thrilled!”

TERI “You certainly will be, Mrs. Bundy.”

BUD “Would I have a chance to be in one of your movies?”

TERI “You might be, Bud. But you would have to take some screen tests to see if you measure up.”

BUD “That shouldn’t be too hard to lick.”

TERI “Maybe we could start those tonight.”

BUD “Do you think we could?”

TERI “I KNOW we could. But I have to clear off the table and do the dishes.”

PEGGY “You mean that you do the dishes TOO?”

TERI “Of course. I would never cook then leave the dirty dishes in the sink.”

(Teri goes to the dishwasher and opens the door) “Mrs. Bundy, there seems to be some laundry in here?”

PEGGY “Oh THAT’S where it went. Never mind, just throw it in the oven.”

AL “Peg, that’s a vacuum cleaner.”

PEGGY “I always thought it was some sort of space age vibrator.”

AL “No Peg, it cleans the rug.”

PEGGY “You mean it does THAT too?”

MARCY “I’m glad my Jefferson isn’t here to see this.”

AL “Why? Because he might see what a REAL woman looks like?”

MARCY “No, because he might start thinking that this IS a woman’s job and refuse to do it anymore.”

PEGGY Al! Look what she’s doing with my feather duster!”

(Teri is  dusting and doing a lot of bending over)

AL “Yes, Peg. She’s dusting the furniture.”

PEGGY “My God! You mean that you can clean with it, too? Wait till I tell the girls at the beauty parlor. They won’t believe it.”

AL ( to Marcy )  “Go home to your ‘Cleaning Boy’.”

(Drooling over Teri ) Peg,  I think that we better go to the bedroom NOW!”

PEGGY “Oh Al, You say the nicest things.”

(Marcy gets up to leave and pauses by Teri)

MARCY “How many pictures have you been in, Miss Lovely?”

TERI “37, Mrs. Darcy.”

MARCY “You must be quite popular.”

TERI “I’m a hit with everybody, Mrs. Darcy.”

AL    PEG! We better get up stairs FAST!.”

PEGGY “Oh Al, I would love to, but where is Teri going to sleep. ?”

TERI “Don’t worry about me Mrs. Bundy. I think I will sleep with Bud. WE can start the screen tests.”

PEGGY “You mean you’re going to spend the night with my little boy?”

BUD ( Looking up ) “Thank you Lord.”

TERRI “I hope he’s NOT little?”

PEGGY “I mean he’s just a baby.”

BUD “MOM !”

TERI “Bud, are you over 18?”

BUD “YES, YES, YES.”

TERI “Then you are a legal adult and can do whatever you want.”

PEGGY “I mean, I don’t know how he will do?”

TERI “Don’t worry, Mrs. Bundy. I think he will do just fine.”

BUD “Oh golly.”

TERI “Come along Bud. Let’s see how well you can perform.”

TERI “Certainly Mrs. Darcy. They could always use another ‘Best Boy’.”

MARCY “Well! I don’t think that you are a movie actress at all. You said that you were in 37 movies, but no one in my bank has ever heard of you.”
