Next Episode of All In the Family is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
All In the Family was first seen in January of 1971 and immediately changed the face of television. Not only was this the number one television series from 1971 through 1976, but it also signified an avalanche of other situation comedies that dealt with controversial subjects in realistic ways, including Chico and the Man, The Jeffersons, Maude, Good Times and Sanford and Son.The series centered around the Bunker family who lived in a home located at 704 Houser Street in Queens, New York. Archie Bunker was the main character, and what a character he was. He was televisons most famous bigot, crass and down right rude. Yet he was loveable, with a soft side just beneath the surface. Edith Bunker was his somewhat dizzy wife whom he called "Dingbat". Edith put up with Archie and had qualities about her that made her one of television's most unforgetable characters. Also living in the Bunker household were Archie and Edith's daughter, Gloria, and her husband Mike, or "Meathead".
It's Edith and Archie Bunker's 22nd wedding anniversary and their daughter Gloria and her husband Mike are planning a surprise Sunday brunch. Edith is pleasantly surprised, however, Archie's "no big deal" attitude leads to a huge argument with his son-in-law on topics ranging from Archie's prejudices, problems with the nation's government and Mike's atheism.
Mike writes a letter to President Nixon protesting everything that's wrong with America, including the state of the environment and the nation's involvement in Vietnam. Archie finds out, and to refute his son-in-law's claims, he decides he also will write a letter to Tricky Dick, praising the nation's chief.
While moonlighting, driving a taxi for Bert Munson, Archie is in a minor fender bender with a Jewish woman. Archie doesn't think much of it, that is until he hears Lionel's story about how George and Louise collected a fine sum of money (enough to open their first cleaning store) from an automobile accident settlement. Thus, Archie suddenly comes down with a bad case of whiplash and insists on a Jewish lawyer to handle the case.
Mike is set to go down to the blood bank to donate some blood and asks Archie if he would like to donate. Dead set against it, Archie refuses to donate blood because he's afraid that his vital fluids might get mixed in with those of a different race. After some coaxing, Mike gets Archie to come to the blood bank, but Archie takes one look at some blood and passes out.
Roger, a friend of Mike and Gloria's, stops by for a visit. Archie takes one look at him and labels him as gay due to what Archie considers effeminate behavior, even though Mike insists that he isn't. Mike soon makes a realization that one of Archie's drinking buddies, Steve is actually a well-adjusted, sports loving, straight-acting, gay man.
Gloria comes home from the doctor with some news: she's pregnant. This leads to a big argument between Archie and Mike so Mike decides to quit school and move out. Archie doesn't believe him, that is until Mike gets a job in Detroit and plans on moving there. However, plans for a move are suddenly halted when Gloria suffers a miscarriage.
Just before leaving on a flight to Europe, Mike's hippie friends need a place to stay for the night. Mike invites them to stay in the Bunker's living room, however, Archie objects citing that no unmarried couple will spend the night together under his roof. But a night of arguing begins to take its toll on everyone, as the fighting begins to stretch into the early morning hours.
When Jim Bowman sells his house, Archie discovers that a new family is moving to the neighborhood. Fearing that Jim sold to a Jewish family, he goes over to investigate, only to discover that the new family is black. Archie quickly hopes to round the neighborhood up and try to force the family out of the area. However, Archie is in for a shock when he discovers it is Lionel's family that has come to the neighborhood.
Edith is all excited that she has been chosen for jury duty. When Archie realizes that she may be sequestered, he forbids her to be on the jury, wanting to keep her at home to cook and clean for him. When she is sequestered, Archie fends for himself. However, Edith's stay may be longer than anticipated when she turns out to be the hold out vote in a murder trial.
Archie stays up all night, expecting a phone call from a security guard who has inside information. It seems his company is laying off and he fears he may lose his job. With Archie not sleeping, no one else in the Bunker household can sleep either and it soon turns into a three ring circus as a cop, a drunk, a pizza delivery man and Edith's friend Clara all stop by at 4 a.m.
Gloria has been reading books on women's lib and encourages Edith to try a little liberation herself. However, Mike won't take any of her ideas, which leads to huge fight in which Gloria demands that Mike recognize her as an equal partner in their marriage. When Mike refuses to do so, Gloria storms out of the house and moves in with a friend.
A delivery man delivers two gifts to the Bunker household. First, he delivers a box of fancy cigars and then a gift basket with assorted alcohol. Archie realizes they're from his good friend Eddie Frazier, who's hit it big in the used-car trade. However, Mike soon learns that Eddie may not be as successful as he wants people to think.
Archie is all set to go to the Mets game; however, Edith has different plans for the evening after she accepted an invitation to go to dinner with the Jeffersons. When Archie discovers this, he comes up with the excuse that Edith sprained her ankle, thus he turns down the invitation, but this is all in vain, when Lionel suggests Louise bring the dinner over to their house. Meanwhile, Archie discovers that George refuses to break bread with "whitey."
