Now officially allied with both the Resistance and Lancers, Grace, her sister, and other former members of Duel Academy helped the refugees in the Resistance's hideout by distributing foods, medical supplies, and rebuilding residential houses for free to atone for what they have done. Grace and her sister helped in making and distributing foods to the refugees, making Gloria questioned why she has to do this, to which Grace answered that making people happy is part of Entertainment, so they should think about it as a training.

Season 2: 1971-1972 24 episodes To the Top # Airdate Title Overview 14 9/18/71 The Saga of Cousin Oscar Archie's freeloading cousin, Oscar, comes to stay with the Bunkers.

Due to an accident in a grocery store parking lot, a can from Edith's shopping basket slightly damages someone's car. In her description of the incident at dinner, she is in her finest dingbat form, so much so that Archie insists that she stop using the phrase "cling peaches in heavy syrup", so she substitutes "mmm-mmm". Archie is aghast that Edith left a note on the car, since he didn't want to end up paying for the damage. He really hits the roof when he calls the garage and - posing as an insurance adjuster - learns that the car owner's bill is for $197.

Archie makes a quick stop at the insurance agent's office first...but the elevator he is in suddenly stops, trapping him with a black businessman, a ditsy secretary, a Puerto Rican man, and his very pregnant wife.

In this episode Grundy and Archie argue about service medals - Grundy received the Purple Heart medal - after cutting himself on a PX beer can while Archie claims to have a "real" war medal - the Good Conduct Medal!

It all starts when Sammy Davis Jr. leaves a briefcase in Archie's taxicab, and needs to visit the Bunkers to retrieve it. Archie tries to be on his best behavior but winds up being himself. In the moment that made the episode, Sammy decides to pose for a picture with Archie, but kisses him on the cheek just as Munson trips the camera's shutter. O'Connor and Davis were longtime friends and when Davis expressed an interest in appearing on the show, O'Connor and Lear came up with the idea of having Davis as himself but doing most of his parts in ad lib form to make it more natural. The kiss at the end was O'Connor's idea. The unrestrained laughter was the longest in TV history; it was cut short in the final print to allow Archie to say the last line on screen. 35 2/26/72 Edith the Judge At a coin-operated laundry, Archie breaks one of the machines, and the manager wants to collect damages.

Archie goes along to make sure there's no hanky-panky between the old sweethearts. 56 2/17/73 Hot Watch For just $25, Archie buys a watch from his friend.

Archie thinks juveniles were simply playing a prank, but they quickly finds out their home was mistaken for a Jewish radical who lives nearby. As violence seems imminent, a 'Hebrew Defense Association' (echoing the Jewish Defense League) member (Gregory Sierra) offers the family "protection." Surprisingly, Archie takes an immediate shine to the charismatic activist and his reactionary tactics, but Mike is appalled at their methods. But everyone is about to get a chilling lesson in how violence begets violence. 58 3/3/73 Everybody Tells the Truth The refrigerator is broken, and the family is forced to eat dinner at a restaurant. Over dinner, Archie and Mike engage in the classic "he said, she said" story, each giving inaccurate versions of what happened on the day a repairman and his black apprentice came to fix the refrigerator. Mike says Archie treated the apprentice (Ron Glass) like an Uncle Tom, while Archie envisions the assistant as a Black Power militant and his boss as a Little Caesar mobster. In the end, Edith gives an accurate account: Archie - impatient as the repairman tried to do his work - unwittingly insulted the black apprentice, causing both the repairman and apprentice to become fed up and leave. Archie then attempts to repair the refrigerator himself but causes the power to go out. Of Course neither Archie or Mike will admit to being wrong and start arguing all over again. 59 3/10/73 Archie Learns His Lesson Attending night classes to earn his high school diploma and maybe get a dispatcher's job at work, Archie swears Edith to secrecy lest Mike and Gloria discover he never finished school.

In one of Edith's best "wisdom of the sages from the mouth of a dingbat" moments, she restores harmony with a lecture about maple syrup. Season 4: 1973-1974 24 episodes To the Top # Airdate Title Overview 62 9/15/73 We're Having a Heat Wave Archie and next-door neighbor Henry Jefferson finally agree on something: They want to keep other ethnic groups out of the neighborhood.

Everyone soon learns he's been placing bets on horses. What's worse: Archie had apparently never really gotten over the betting urge, which was (temporarily) resolved when Edith threatened to leave him 20 years earlier. 67 10/20/73 Henry's Farewell Edith plans a farewell reception for Henry Jefferson, who is moving away. Archie tries to be nice and bury the hatchet with his adversary, but is his usual self. But just when Archie think's he's finally rid of a black man who is just as strong-headed about disparaging the other's race as he is, in walks George Jefferson, the man who had long refused to step foot in Archie's house ... and hates whites even more. First appearance of Sherman Hemsley as George Jefferson. This is the only episode in which George and Henry appear together. 68 10/27/73 Archie and the Computer The follies of computers: Edith gets a small fortune in quarters from a prune company after she sends in a box top to get a 25-cent rebate and the company's computer makes an error.

When things aren't going his way, he childishly quits the game and rants about how Archie undeservedly has plenty of opportunities despite his bigotry.

Instead, she offers Mike insight regarding Archie's insulting attutude toward him. 70 11/10/73 Edith's Conversion When Irene invites Edith to her Catholic church one Sunday (as a guest), Archie becomes worried that Irene will influence his wife into converting to Catholicism, especially when she brings evidence (some brochures from the church and a Catholic medallion) into the house.

He likes it so much that he gets sexually aroused. But what happens when she takes off the wig, now that Mike has seen her wearing it?

The two catch up on old times, but the current news for Joe is not all that good. He's unemployed and by now desperate for any kind of work. He meets with Archie's boss, Mr. Prendergast, telling him he's willing to take any job offer available. Archie, fearing for his own job, tries to sandbag his friend, but all turns out well.
Joe Tucker was played by actor Vic Tayback who, two years later, would gain fame for his portrayal of Mel on the long-running sitcom Alice . 80 2/2/74 Gloria's Boyfriend Gloria's new friend is George, a mildly retarded stockboy at Ferguson's Market. While delivering groceries one day to the Bunkers, Archie keeps George at the house, asking him stupid questions and getting him to do things for his amusement. When George loses his job, George's father shows up at the Bunkers, demanding an explanation. Eventually, George shows he still has some savvy (not to mention abilities) by proving he can successfully seek and obtain work when he gets a new job. 81 2/9/74 Lionel's Engagement The Bunkers are invited to Lionel's engagement to Jenny Willis, who comes from a mixed marriage: Her father, Tom (called Louis in this episode), is white while her mother, Helen, is black.
