General note: This is the last episode produced. It originally aired together with "The Desperate Half-Hour" as a one-hour show and was announced to be the last episode ever; there is a short "tribute" message after the freeze frame: black screen, in elegant white script flashes: "THANK YOU, MARRIED... WITH CHILDREN" "FOR ELEVEN GREAT SEASONS" "AND A MILLION LAUGHS."; then the Fox logo in white, then fade out; because of scheduling problems, the taping was not open to the public, but was taped before a small audience consisting of friends and relatives of the cast and crew; the episode was taped before Fox's decision to cancel the show, so the producers didn't consider this to be the last episode. It wasn't the last episode to premiere in the US. "Chicago Shoe Exchange" (1121) premiered Five weeks later, and "I'll See You in Court" (0308) didn't premiere before June 18, 2002!

Kelly's boyfriend: Lonnie
Bud's penpal: Starla

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the movie "How To Marry A Millionaire" with Marilyn Monroe.

Transcript: Available at Married with Children... All Things Episodic.
