      • Archie: I'm saying youse guys oughtta stick with youselves.

        Archie: You know what I'm talking about, Lionel. I'm saying that whites oughtta stay with whites and coloreds oughtta stay with coloreds.
        Lionel: Look, Mr. Bunker, it's been a year and a half now since we moved into this neighborhood. I was just nineteen, and I got a big kick out of you and me for a long time. But I'm pushing 21 now, and I'm not getting that big a kick out of it anymore.
        Archie: Put a lid on it, Lionel...
        Lionel: I'm not finished. Now we've been friends and we can go on being friends. But when it comes to black and white and all the other wonderful thoughts you have in between, put a lid on *that*, Archie!
