Episode Summary

EDIT
The Man in the Street
AIRED:
Archie comes home from work in a great mood and orders Edith to have dinner ready and waiting, because he has an important date to watch the CBS Evening News to see himself on it. Apparently, Archie was interviewed as a man-on-the-street voicing his opinions on Nixon's presidency. However, getting to see himself proves to be difficult for him, when the TV breaks down.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • In this episode Archie coins the term "Hail Moses," when he's talking with the TV repairman, which is evidently his idea of the Jewish equivalent of a Hail Mary.

    • QUOTES (4)

    • NOTES (4)

      • This episode was videotaped on October 29, 1971.

      • The guys at Kelsey's are watching basketball on the TV. You can hear the announcer say the names 'Frazier' and 'Bradley' so it must be the Knicks. But why are the Knicks playing at about 6:30 PM (EST) on a Friday night? Isn't that like an hour before the usual tip-off?

      • It seems highly unlikely that any network - especially CBS - would interrupt its own newscast for a three minute Oval Office statement from Richard Nixon. These Presidential Statements are generally targeted for prime time for the widest exposure, and the New York CBS news broadcast would have been 7:00pm.

      • Dan Rather and Richard Nixon are seen in achival footage on the TV in Kelsey's.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Edith tells Archie that the TV picture goes out in the afternoon when she's watching The Edge of Night, and usually stays out until after The Secret Storm. Both were popular soap operas at the time.
