  • The late Sammy Davis, Jr. stops by 704 Hauser Street. Archie tries to be a good host but his bigotry gets in the way.

    "Sammy's Visit" is not just one of the greatest episodes of "All in the Family". It is one of the greatest moments in television history period. In any discussions of "All in the Family" this episode will no doubt be mentioned every time and for very good reason. It has a masterfully written script not just with terrific laughs but with well written dialogue as well. Sammy's "You ain't better than nobody" speech to Archie is classic. The entire cast is terrific. I am glad the writers of the show included the late Mike Evans for this episode. If there is one episode which showed what an excellent job he did as Lionel Jefferson, this is it. He was a huge reason why "All in the Family" such an excellent series. The jokes never get old and the dialogue never gets tired even after many repeated viewings. Truly one of the greatest television episodes in history that will never be equaled.
  • The famous episode

    This is one of the most well known episodes. Sammy's visit is one of the most talked about episodes. This was a very funny episode. Archie and Sammy's back and forth was great.
  • The Best

    Sammy's Visit is the funniest thing I have ever seen on tv including Lucy,and I do love Lucy,but this episode is hysterical from beginning to end .One of the funniest episodes ever seen on it was written by Bill Dana.
