First camera shot: A painting of a sailing ship.

Synopsis: Peg narrates her own pirate fantasy and stars as a captive princess (Scarlet), with Jefferson as her prince (Paco), Al as her captor (and later rescuer) pirate Captain Courage, and Marcy's ex-husband Steve as the evil pirate Rubio the Cruel, who's feared for his terrible showtune singing as much as anything else. The crew is rounded out by Bud, as Fluvio the hunchback First Mate, Kelly as the Navigator, Marcy as the Cabin Boy-girl, and Buck as Long John Buck. Meanwhile, Al has a battle of his own with an overflowed toilet.

Recurring character cast:
Steve Rhoades: David Garrison (his second reappearance since he left the regular cast)
Seven: Shane Sweet

Guest cast:
Black Bob: Eric Menyuk
Black Ben: Gene LeBell
Black Bert: Frank Lloyd

General note: The last show with Seven. The end credits are over a picture showing Captain Courage and Princess Scarlet. Peggy & Al have sex.

Music: Rubio the Cruel sings "I Am the Pirate King", dancing an Irish jig and "I Am the Very Model of A Modern Major-General", both from The Pirates of Penzance, and "The Trolley Song".

Influences: The episode title is influenced by the comic strip "Terry and the Pirates". The episode is a parody on Married... with Children itself, along with No Pot to Pease in (0909).
