Written by Katherine Green
Directed by Gerry Cohen

First camera shot: Al with field-glasses.

Synopsis: An apple grows on a Bundy tree, but hangs over the D'Arcy's yard, prompting a property dispute that turns ugly... and explosive.

Guest cast:
Inspector: Gary Coleman (from Diff'rent Strokes")
Surveyor: Danny Bonaduce (from "The Partridge Family")
Manager: Dave Madden (from "The Partridge Family")
Girl: Joni Allen

General note: During the end credits Al and Jefferson fight over another apple, but Buck beats them to it. Katherine Green is listed as the sole Executive Producer for this episode

Bud's date: "girl"

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the movie "How Green Was My Valley". At one point, Al tells Gary Coleman about the D'Arcys that the only black person they respect is Ted Danson. In 1993, Ted Danson was the Roast Master for Whoopi Goldberg's Friar's Club Roast and he appeared on stage completely black-faced and apparently made somewhat insulting jokes about black people throughout the night.

Goofs: Al cuts the D'Arcy's phone line. But when Al jacks up the house at night, Jefferson uses the telephone to call for the rocket launcher. The phone line could have been repaired by then, though.

The Bundys
