Episode cast overview:
Marilyn Sanders
Danny Sanders


A woman comes to the door and tells Edith that she is leaving Michael with something of his that she has had for four years: his son. The woman runs away, leaving the kid in Edith's care. He refuses to give her his name or his mother's name. When Gloria and Mike and Archie come home, they can't get an answer either. Then it all comes back to Mike when a photo is found in the kid's pocket. Seems she is Marylin Sanders, a woman that he was with some years ago for one night. This raises some issues between Mike and Gloria since he never told her about the woman. Marylin comes back and lets them know that she has had a difficult time finding a man who will accept her son, so she left him with the Bunkers hoping that she could make a go of her latest date and then introduce the kid once things had worked out. She also reveals that Mike is, in fact, not the father. Written by Jerry Roberts <armchair-cinema@hotmail.com>
