First camera shot: Peggy is singing and dancing to the song "Respect".

Guest cast:
Policeman: Deron McBee

General note: This is a key episode for Married... with Children's success; Terry Rakolta from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, was shocked by this episode and started a fight against the series; this made people curious about the show and its ratings increased tremendously. Oconomowoc, Wisconsin really exists, whereas there is no place called Francine's in Oconomowoc.

General note: Peggy & Al want to have sex, but Al finds a hunky guy in their bedroom.

Music: "Respect" by Aretha Franklin.

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the song "My Cup Runneth Over" from the musical "I Do! I Do!"; the line is originally from the 23rd Psalm.

 Peaches, Muffy and Al
