Wikia MWC - At the Zoo

Steve plans to cook his way back into Marcy's good books...

Al and Marcy are the suckers in their respective families, still bringing home the bacon while their spouses spend the day at the zoo, along with the Bundy kids, in the fourth season's tenth episode. Newly unemployed Steve decides he doesn't really want to work, so he fritters away his days with the Bundys, visiting zoos and taking fishing trips. In order to cover this up, he lies to Marcy that he has been spending all day at job interviews and employment exchanges, but always getting the thumbs down. When Marcy discovers the truth, she explodes and says that he will be going to a job interview at her bank, which she set up herself.

  • At the conclusion, Steve is supposed to have killed a salt water Caribbean pygmy turtle by putting into Lake Michigan, a fresh water lake. First of all, there is no such animal as a Caribbean pygmy turtle. Second, turtles are reptiles and are not vulnerable the way a salt water fish placed in fresh water would be. Salt water turtles can survive in fresh water for short periods of time.
