    The ninth season (and the series) ends with Edith in great pain due to phlebitis. However Archie expects Edith to do all of the cooking for the upcoming St. Patrick's Day Party at Archie's Place.

    "Too Good Edith" is a fitting end to probably the greatest situation comedy in television history. As usual Jean Stapleton and the late Carrol O'Connor are in top form as they have always been since the beginning. The episode also has just the right mix of comedy and drama to make it work well. The episode's final scene of Archie in bed next to an ailing Edith is a perfect way to close the book on All in the Family. It's nice to see Archie admit for once how important Edith is to him and how much he loves her.moreless

    Edith is ordered by her doctor to stay off her feet, but she has to cook for a St. Patrick's Day dinner Archie is throwing at the bar. But she gets very sick, and Archie realizes just how serious her ankle condition is.

    Good episode. It was really sweet. The ending, where Archie says "Without you Edith, I'm nothing" is probably one of my favorite moments of the series. There were not a lot of laughs to be found, but who cares when the plot is this enticing and serious. Great final episode of one of the best Sitcoms ever, this episode definitely deserves an A+ as a grade.moreless
