Margaret “Peg“/”Peggy” Bundy (née Wanker) (Katey Sagal) is Al’s lazy, self-indulgent wife. She refuses to work, cook or clean the house (although Peg occasionally displays an ability for domestic aptitude). She cites her laziness as family tradition, getting upset with Kelly when she gets a job. She claims that Wanker women never work, and in old pioneer days, “Wanker women were getting their hair done while Wanker men got theirs scalped.” During the day, she likes to watch daytime talk shows, sit on the living room couch, and eat copious amounts of ice-cream BonBons (without ever gaining weight). Peg is a redhead (brunette in the first two seasons) with a bouffant hairdo and she usually wears combinations of modern-day 1980/1990s and dated 1960s-styled fashions with skin tight Spandex pants and shirts, and stiletto heels, which make her walk in a unique way. Peg smoked cigarettes in the first four seasons but then quit. Her favorite TV shows are Oprah and Donahue, but she also enjoys watching the Shop at Home Network. Peg continually squanders what little money Al makes on extravagant spending sprees: everything from expensive clothes to useless trinkets, even stealing from her children to get extra cash.

Truth be told these people would be miserable no matter what class they were in and like a trapped guest I was looking to leave Abigail’s Party as soon as I could.
