Griff, a little depressed this holiday season

I Can't Believe It's Butter is the thirteenth episode of Season 10, and the 222th overall episode of Married... with Children.

Plot SynopsisEdit

Al gives Griff 20 free minutes at a sex line, which he hopes will help soothe his lonely friend, especially given that Christmas is coming. Al's friends get addicted to calling a woman named Butter at a 1-900-YUMMY phone sex line, but Al finds out that the woman is Peg's mother. With the money she earns, she buys all a nice Christmas dinner. So Al decides to keep this a secret from NO MA'AM, but when Griff falls in love with her, Al makes a plan. He gets Bud and Kelly to get Peggy's mother to leave the room so Peggy and Al can use the phone. Peggy acts as Butter, and she tells Griff that while they may have had enjoyable experiences of phone sex, they can't spend the holidays together as she already "has someone". Griff comes out of it relatively fine, which pleases Al. Unfortunately, Peggy's mother notices the commotion of the NO MA'AM group and points out their secret names used by them on the hotline, as she reveals to them that she is Butter, which leaves the group aghast in horror, with Al giving her a dirty look as the episode ends.
