First camera shot: Bud and Kelly are looking at the family photo-album.

Synopsis: Peggy reaps immediate benefits when Al learns he can inherit a half-million dollars if he fathers a child and names it after his late uncle Stymie. Unfortunately for Al, Peg decides to take birth control pills, and not tell him. When Al finds out after months of draining attempts at baby-making, he decides to extract his revenge by making Peg think she is pregnant.

Guest cast:
Miss Penza: Beth Broderick
Eugene Bundy: Charlie Brill

General note: Peggy & Al have sex many times; one time it takes only one minute and 12 seconds.

Music: "She Works Hard for the Money" by Donna Summer.

Kellyisms: "Buenos nachos" instead of "Buenas noches" (Spanisch for "good night").

Influences and references: Kelly makes a joke about "Orville Redenbacher and his really cool grandson". This is a reference to Orville Redenbacher who was a farmer and entrepreneur who developed a superior brand of popcorn (Orville Redenbacher Gourmet Popcorn). He was the spokesman for his own popcorn, appearing in commercials for many years. When he was in his 80's, the character of his "grandson" was added to the commercials. The episode title is a children's rhyme. It is also influenced by the movie "And Baby Makes Six" and the phrase "And Baby Makes Three".
