Trivia

The original All in the Family episode has an additional scene that wasn't adapted in the live remake. In both the original and the remake, Archie tries to mock George Jefferson by claiming that the flower on his lapel is a joke squirting flower to which the insulted George lets Archie know the flower is genuine. The scene at the end of the original episode has Gloria and Mike going to the movies and Mike shows Archie that he's been inspired by George to also wear a flower on his lapel. Except Mike is actually wearing a joke squirting flower and after being insulted by Archie, Mike sprays him in the face. See more »

Goofs

Archie only read the Daily News, a tabloid, not whatever oversized paper he was holding. That format is used by the WSJ, and the NY Times, neither of which Archie would ever read. See more »

This was genius!!! A total delight to watch, pop culture at its absolute finest with stellar performances by all. Marisa Tomei nailed the character of Edith with poise and grace. This is a true gem!
