Storyline

Mike and Lionel decide to become part of an anti-war protest, but it isn't until they leave that Gloria gets the news that the situation is turning violent. She and Edith urge Archie to go down to the protest and bring him home. Mike comes home frazzled but unharmed, but Archie ends up in the slammer surrounded by commies, hippies and drop-outs. Mike secures his release because the police captain is Polish, but Archie doesn't know that and offends the captain, leaving him to stay in jail a little longer.

Archie meets some fellow citizens
29 April 2015 | by (Ocean, NJ) – See all my reviews

For me, this remains one of the funniest episodes of the series, especially during Archie's interactions with the various demonstrators. I don't want to give away some of the most hilarious lines, but the dialog following Archie's use of an inhaler for allergies still cracks me up after having seen it dozens of times over the decades. The scene also is an interesting time capsule, in that it gives a pretty thorough overview of the various types of demonstrators at the time, exactly as I remember them: the blissed-out hippie, the political activist, the Jesus freak, the Black pride advocate, the mellow Black dude, the radical, etc. -- it was a mixed bag back then!
