Master the Possiblilities is the 16th episode of season 2 of Married... with Children, also the 29th overall episode in the series. Directed by Linda Day, and written by series creators Michael G. Moye and Ron Leavitt, the episode premiered on FOX on February 7, 1988.
When Al gets a package of "Yodelin' Andy" records that he didn't order, Marcy tells Al that if he gets something in the mail that he didn't order, he can legally keep it. Using this knowledge, Al receives a credit card in the mail made out to the family dog Buck, and begins to use the card under Buck's name.
The sixteenth episode of season two begins with Peggy essentially bankrupting Al - again. She uses the credit card for expensive shopping, leaving him to work at a lobster-packing plant to pay off a grilled cheese sandwich! Al decides he needs a new credit card -- in his name only -- but finds himself turned down by every financial institution! The same, however, cannot be said of family dog Buck, who is on numerous mailing lists, one of which includes a pre-approved credit card!
