Episode Summary

EDIT
The Bunkers and the Swingers
AIRED:
Edith finds a magazine on the subway and reads an ad in the "swap" section. Not realizing what is actually being asked for, Edith assumes the couple is looking for friendship. Mike and Gloria, in a rush, try to explain what they really want. However, it isn't until the couple is actually standing in the Bunker's living room that Edith realizes, with a little help from Louise, that they are "swingers" and they want to swap with Archie and Edith.moreless

  • While riding the subway Edith finds a magazine titled "New Family." In it she finds an ad placed by swingers Curtis and Ruth Rempley. Wrongly thinking the Rempleys are looking for friendship, Edith invites them over.moreless

    Along with "Archie is Branded", "The Bunkers and the Swingers" is one of the best episodes of the third season of "All in the Family." The late Rue McCalanahan displays the terrific acting ability that would later help pave the way to an Emmy award on "The Golden Girls." The late Vincent Gardenia, in the first of three appearances on the show (as three different characters), is just as good as the male half of the swinging couple. The highlight of this episode is the final scene where Edith realizes her mistake. The scene's drama and emotion seem very genuine.moreless
