Archie, Mike and Gloria plan a surprise party for Edith to celebrate her 50th birthday. But an unwelcome visitor to the Bunker's home - while Edith is home alone - has a much different surprise in mind for the Bunker matriarch.

According to the book "Archie and Edith, Mike and Gloria: The tumultuous history of All In The Family", this episode, where Edith was held prisoner in her home and tormented by a would-be rapist, was originally intended to be used on One Day at a Time
(1975), with Ann Romano as the victim. See more
After Edith clocks the would-be rapist with her burnt cake and cake pan, she runs out of the house in a panic and goes next door to Mike and Gloria's, leaving the living room lights on. (The front door is swinging shut behind Jean Stapelton as she runs off the porch set and out of the shot.) Later, Mike and Archie decide to check the house to see if the rapist is still there, and when they do, the door is shut but the living room lights are off. Edith didn't turn the lights off, and the rapist would certainly have not made the extra effort to do this either in the injured state he was in. So, who turned off the lights? See more
