How well do you remember when Mike met Archie Bunker for the first time?

Safe to say this introduction went off the rails pretty quickly.

On Now
MeTV Presents the Best of Archie Bunker
Up Next:

Do Archie Bunker and Mike Stivic get along? No.

Do they eventually find common ground? No. 

Did Archie ultimately let Mike live with him? Yes. 

It's no secret the two clash on just about everything, and always have. But for them to have always argued, they must have argued for the first time at some point! In the episode "Flashback: Mike Meets Archie," these two clashing characters are introduced to one another. 

And trust us, it doesn't take long for the arguing to start! How well do you remember the time Mike met Archie?

Watch All in the Family on MeTV!

Two full hours!

  1. When Gloria says, "Just think Archie, Gloria and Mike have been with us as man and wife for one whole year. Ain't that wonderful?" What does Archie compare living with them for a year to?

  3. After Mike leaves, he keeps calling but Archie keeps answering the phone. What does he say?

I watched All In The Family from the day it premiered (I was ten) until the last episode of Archie Bunker's Place ended. One day about ten years or so after that, I noticed a local channel was running it, so I turned it on...and I couldn't watch it. I can't put specific lessons into words, but Archie taught me well...

Well MeTV, i just watched it and yes, it's Edith NOT Gloria who says THAT line! Are you going to fix it or are you going to pull a George Santos...LOL!

BTW, Mr. Stivic is what Edith called Mike, so tecnically it would have been the right answer for the earlier calls! in other words Mike is Mr. Stivic!

I passed on the quiz. I haven’t seen AITF since the 70s. I will not watch it now. Not at all.

The best classic TV shows can stand in the test of time. This one doesn’t. I’m betting that I’m not alone. Maybe if enough viewers change the channel, it will eventually get replaced with something more worthy of a 2-hour Prime time slot.

Well now that the episode has run, shouldn't MeTV admit its mistake? We all heard Edith speak, didn't we?
cperrynaples cperrynaples 9 months ago
And at the top, they said that first meeting went off the rails! The phrasing of that first question was more like East Pallastine!

And I never saw the episode...
I guess Archie is kind of predictable.
(Got stupid on #8, and didn't look at the picture for the obvious clue. )
Yep,Archie was hungry! And please don't tell me you picked the third answer when you knew darn well Mike was already home!

"When Gloria says, 'Just think Archie, Gloria and Mike have been with us as man and wife for one whole year. Ain't that wonderful?' What does Archie compare living with them for a year to?"

You mean when EDITH says it.
cperrynaples Avie 9 months ago
Yep, so why doesn't MeTV correct it? They can do it,you know!
cperrynaples cperrynaples 9 months ago
PS It's proably because they're as stubborn as Archie...LOL!

Ditto, and that's the same score I got.

3/8, ME TV showed their human side in question 1, it was Edith that asked the question, not Gloria. You're forgiven, most of us understood it.

I went back and saw that part, I only read the part about Archie the first time! But think about it: A daughter wouldn't call her father by his first name and only a pretentious person would use their own name in that syntax! Also, I'm sure Gloria's teachers told her "Ain't" is wrong! MeTV isn't human, they're stupid! That said I slipped up on 7 even with the single candle...THAT'S HUMAN ERROR!

PS And once again I must add that the third answer to 8 is stupid because Mike lived in Archie's house until Season 6 when he bought the Jefferson house!
Moverfan cperrynaples 9 months ago
Archie: The NEXT-DOOR Jefferson house?
Mike (I think): That's the house!
cperrynaples Moverfan 9 months ago
Yep, for 3 seasons, Archie & Mike were neighbors!
Moverfan cperrynaples 8 months ago
I know that part. I'm just not sure if Mike was the one who answered that's been a lonnng time since I've seen it.

It wasn't Mr. Jefferson, it was a workman. Archie thought he was Jesus. lol
cperrynaples BeckyB 9 months ago
Yep both George and his brother would let him rot! Remember the fight about the color of Jesus?
braycy BeckyB 9 months ago
