Trivia

Edith's quiz results predicted her to outlive Archie. Ironically, Archie Bunker's Place would include her off camera death, well before the predicted age. In real life however, Jean Stapleton would wind up outliving Carroll O'Connor by twelve years. In addition, Gloria changed the results of Archie's test to show him living until the age of 75, and O'Connor would live until the age of 76. See more »

deadly quiz
13 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

This fun episode starts with Edith and Gloria taking a quiz on how long a person may live, and what type of daily habits said person does or doesn't do in their life. I think the quiz gave Edith a life expectancy of 84, and when Archie comes home from work to belittle the quiz, he soon changes his tune after the quiz says he'll live to be 57. He's reminded by his family that he smokes cigars and drinks too much beer, and is very irritable, which leads to the premature "death" of him way before his wife. The funniest moment has Archie waking from a nightmare yelling "don't drop me!", as he explains to Edith that he dreamt that the Meathead was a pallbearer at his funeral, and while he's carrying Archie's coffin with one hand, his other hand is holding a sandwich; soon after, he drops Archie as the coffin rolls away, and Archie's new suit gets dirty. A scene or 2 later, Gloria, who actually is useful for once, tells her dad that the math was wrong on the quiz, and she adds the numbers again, and now she has him living until he's 75 this time around. While Archie's relieved, he goes to the kitchen to get Edith and while he's out of the room, Mike tells Gloria that there was no problem with the original numbers, then she confesses that she simply made up the higher number to ease her dad. While this isn't close to any of my favorite episodes of this show, I enjoyed how all the family members were involved and all had several lines of importance.
