Nightmare on Al's Street is the 11th episode of season one of Married... With Children, also the 10th overall series episode. Directed by Linda Day and written by Michael G. Moye, it originally aired on FOX on June 14, 1987.


This byproduct of a heated argument about sexism was the eleventh episode of season one, and involved Marcy's unwanted erotic dreams about Al.

While Steve is out of town for the week on business, Marcy starts having dreams involving a romance-minded Al which turns her dreams into nightmares, and turns off her sexual urges, prompting her to look into the source of her nightmares, while a clueless Steve asks Al for advice on Marcy's sudden lack of sexual needs.
