Archie Bunker: You know Edith, the whole damned rest of the world could go to the dogs, but as long as I got you standing by my side, or sitting by my side, or lying like this, by my side, I'd be alright. Oh Edith, I've been blowing my own horn for a long time, but I'm going to tell you something, I'm nothing without you.
[last lines of the series]
Archie Bunker: Oh, Edith - you know somethin'? If the whole damn world was to go to the dogs, as long as I had you by my side, y'know... or sittin' by my side... or, layin' here, like this, by my side... everything'll be... just okay. I've been blowin' my own horn, for a lotta years... but lemme tell you somethin'. I ain't NOTHIN'...
Archie Bunker: without you.
[they kiss, then fumble over both drying their tears on his tie]
Edith Bunker: [smiling through tears] You know somethin', Archie? You're a pip. A real pip.
Edith Bunker: [final line] You know something, Archie: You're a pip. A real pip.
Dr. Sidney Shapiro: [finds out Archie didn't know Edith was sick after accusing him of trying to kill her] Please don't tell my father.
Archie Bunker: [in shock] I won't, just don't play baseball on my stoop anymore.
Edith Bunker: I wash your clothes and iron your shirts and make sure they're all folded in the right drawers.
Archie Bunker: Well I could hire Sybil Goolie to do all of that!
Edith Bunker: Sybil Goolie would never do any of those things for you.
Archie Bunker: Why not?
Edith Bunker: Because she don't like you.
Edith Bunker: I LOVE YOU, Archie. That's why I do all those things for you.
Stephanie: A person can't go paralyzed by smelling cabbage.
Archie Bunker: I don't know, the nose is a pretty strong thing. One time I was changing one of Joey's diapers and I nearly passed out.
Dr. Sidney Shapiro: Mr. Bunker, I have known you since I was 6 years old.
Archie Bunker: Yeah I didn't like you then either.
Dr. Sidney Shapiro: And I don't like you now!
Dr. Sidney Shapiro: Based on the smell in here, I can guess what you've been doing.
Archie Bunker: [looks around funny] Well that might make somebody leave the room or open a window, but that's not gonna paralyze anybody.
Dr. Sidney Shapiro: I'm not talking about cabbage!
Archie Bunker: Well it can't be, I ain't ate any of it yet.
