    Anybody ocassionally visiting this forum have a favorite Archie misquote? My favorites are when he completely mixes up scripture. Here are a few:

    In Everybody Does It Archie defends his unethical behavior and says, "Let him who is without sin be the rolling stone."

    In Joey's Baptism when Edith tries to prevent him from secretly taking Joey to get baptized: "Edith, if God got sore enough at you, he might turn your jawbone into an ass!"

    Also like Archie's summary of Adam's and Eve's fall from Paradise: "God told them to get their clothes on and get the hell out!"

    There was this really funny scene in an AITF episode one time where Archie was saying how Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt "because she turned around to look at her behind." I always found that to be a hilarious misquote!
