If I Were a Rich Man is the third episode of Season 2 of Married... with Children, also the 16th overall series episode. Directed by Linda Day and written by series co-creators Sandy Sprung and Marcy Vosburgh, it originally aired on FOX on October 4, 1987.
When Steve's bank is suddenly short one million dollars in season two's third episode, the other Bundys assume that Al stole it and that, therefore, they are rich.
Steve takes Al to the vault at the bank where Steve works for a secret after-hours card game, and the next day, one million dollars is reported missing. Al is then treated like a king by Peggy and the kids, as well as encountering hostility from Steve, all of whom mistakenly think Al stole the money.
