Edith states that she has spoken to her Aunt Rose in years and that she was mean and hateful but when Edith cousin got married her Aunt Rose was friendly.
If Edith was the only one from the family to show up at her aunt's funeral, then who made the funeral and burial arrangements? They never say that Edith did, so apparently someone else made them and then didn't bother to show up.
This was the first appearance of Bill Quinn as Mr. Van Ranseleer, the blind Archie's Place patron. Although he was not credited in this episode, he would guest star in two more episodes of All in the Family, and have a recurring role on Archie Bunker's Place.
Archie and Edith has a phone in their bedroom. both of their phones are now almond push button in the final season. In the previous eight seasons they had a 1930s black rotary dial phone.
Stepanie Mills was also the name of a popular singer and actress at the time, who starred as Dorothy in the Broadway musical "The Wiz". She also released several hit records, the most popular being "I Never Knew Love Like This Before"
The episode title is misleading, since Stephanie is from Edith's side of the family. In fact, she's not even a blood relative of Edith.
Where is little Joey when Mike and Gloria and Archie and Edith are reaffirming their vows? There is no account made for his absence during the ceremony, although he reappears right before the Stivics leave. If we are to assume that he was upstairs and Gloria had put him down for a nap, it seems very unlikely that Edith would have started pounding on the piano and belting out a song at the top of her lungs.
When Edith is singing "You Promise Me", you can clearly see that the lyrics are facing the viewers point so how can she sing the words if they are facing the other way?
Edith reveals that Mike's new salary as an associate professor will be $21,800.
George still had his cleaning store in Queens (one of the seven in his empire) so it was not a stretch for him to come over to the Stivics' house. Besides, it made a great crossover-too bad we never saw the Bunker's visit the Jefferson's new apartment (in the sky).
Why did George return to Queens just to visit the Stivics, which by the way, he stays there for less than 5 minutes and then leaves, when he could've just called about the house being bought?
So, maybe there's a reason behind it, but anyhow, if he had to leave so sudden, why did he accept Gloria's peice of cake, which he didn't take a bite of and that Archie wanted anxiously?
Archie's brother, Fred, suddenly appears after years of estrangement, but in "Archie Finds a Friend" Archie says that he's an only child, and in "The Saga of Cousin Oscar" Archie says that he has a sister, Alma, and a brother named Phil.
Archie and his brother recall their father's funeral 29 years earlier (circa 1949). However, in "Meet the Bunkers," Mike talks about a visit from Archie's father "about a year ago" (or 1970).
This episode consists on one continuous scene inside Archie's Place.
Although the butcher tells Edith his first name is Albrescht (Al for short), the credits at the end of the episode list his first name as Alvin.
In this episode, there's a banner on display in Archie's bar announcing the teams: it's Dallas versus Denver in Superbowl #12
Edith's Crisis of Faith Part II, (written by Mel Tolkin, Larry Rhine, Erik Tarloff) was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series.
It seems strange that Little Joey wasn't present at the Christmas dinner. Did they leave him all alone at home?
Goof: After Beverly kisses Archie, the lipstick print changes shape and position on Archie's forehead in between shots. In the first shot, it is nearly at his hairline. Later, it has moved down on his head.
Anachronism: In the kitchen scene of Mike and Gloria's flashback, Gloria takes a box of Arm and Hammer baking soda out of the refrigerator. The box has a UPC barcode on it. These were not on American grocery items circa 1969, the time of the flashback.
