He was once in the Army and claims to have studied aerial photography during the Gulf Warand to have received a Purple Heart in combat, which is in complete contrast with his generally childish attitude. He is a teacher at the school and often pursues women, albeit unsuccessfully.

Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object.
However, In order to assure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric staple gun and fasten your trousers securely in place around your waist.
I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. In order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day.

Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early.
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make YOU cry. This meant that the comedy would be nothing less of spectacular, and that's exactly what happened: Every line, facial expression, casting choice, scene, all wreaked of perfection.
There was not one episode after which I thought, "Man that wasn't as good as the rest". Each one was a standout.
Again, this is the kind of perfectionism that we've come to expect from Tom. He's a producer here not a director, but his magic touch is felt in every episode.
The family consists of: Paul Hennessy John Ritter: John unfortunately passed away in leaving a fond memory and near-sure cancellation contemplations by the suits. Al Bundy was our hero. We viewers gave him the respect and love he never had.
But without Peg's nonchalant, parasitic, lazy lifestyle, Al would've probably been just another Chicago dad instead of the mess that Peg life, actually caused him to be. Katey was a MILF back then and still is: Cate is the conservative mom and loving wife. I know it sounds boring, but comedically, she fits perfectly. The Ditzy Blonde Daughter: Bridget played to perfection by Kaley Cuoco: Aside of Gob on Arrested Development, Bridget may well be a shoe-in for any awards given to this archetype.
Bridget is shallow, self-centered, not very bright and a tad slutty in his look. She plays the dumb blonde role better than absolutely anyone IMO. One of the high-points of the show. The Overlooked Geeky Daughter: Feels overlooked, under-appreciated and neglected most of the time.

She's Bridget's younger sister in reality she's older than her and the two's extremely opposite personalities and brains cause endless clashes, to much of our amusement. Those characters were the main ones at the time of John Ritter. Unfortunately enough, the insanely hilarious Larry Miller one of my favorites did not get lots of screen time.
