Signoffs - Classic Series Finales

"Thank You, Married...Children For Eleven Great Seasons and a Million Laughs" - The final words seen on the TV screen as the sitcom MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN/FOX/1987-97 faded into TV history and into syndication heaven. The last episode "How to Marry A Moron" found Kelly Bundy (Christina Applegate) about to be married.


But when shoe salesman Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill) discovers Kelly's husband-to-be made a pass at another woman before the ceremony, he pounds him into the ground.

The very last scene has Al, Peg (Katey Sagal), Bud (David Faustino) and Kelly speaking the following dialog:

Peg: Are you okay, honey?  
Kelly: Yeah, I guess so. You know, I'm going to miss Lonnie, but at least I have something that'll always remind me of him.
 Al: A $10,000 wedding debt?  
 Kelly: No, Daddy, that's...that's YOURS!. I've got this. [twiddles her finger with huge diamond ring on it]. And my loved ones to console me. 
  Bud:  We're here for you, Kel.  
 Kelly: Not you! [she moves to a crowd of old boyfriends, turns  to face her family with a big smile and says] THEM, hahahahaaa!  [The screen freezes, fades to black as white letters flash the message] THANK YOU, MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN FOR ELEVEN GREAT SEASONS AND A MILLION LAUGHS. Followed by the Fox logo in white and then FADE OUT.
