General note: This episode aired as part of a 3-D "Fox-o-rama" special; the end credits feature Al and Peg wearing 3-D glasses and looking at the names scroll by on the screen. Peg says: "I don't get it."

Influences: The episode title is influenced by the legal expression "Assault and Battery".

Goofs: Bud and Kelly find Buck's birth certificiate which has been there for ten years. The original Bundy couch burned down in 815, though. Also, Peggy's picture is actually on the box the 3-D glasses came from.

Transcript: Available at Ade Bundy's Internet MWC DataBase and Married with Children... All Things Episodic.
