Edith informs Kate Korman that Archie is a hero, too, having served in World War II. Edith says, "He's still got some shrapnel in him." However, in other episodes, it is stated that Archie was drafted but never was deployed abroad, serving his time at an army base in the States.
The single beer that Hank brings over for Archie mysteriously appears and reappears outside the paper bag it was in after Hank sets it on the little table between the Bunkers' chairs.
As Archie lays in the hospital bed, Mike comes in to visit and the cover to the tray in front of Archie keeps changing with the lid either tilted to the side or covering the tray without being touched until Mike eats the dinner.
Goof: Edith takes Joey upstairs to change his diaper, but comes back downstairs just a few moments later without Joey, when Archie hollers up that he got fired. Even if Joey went down soundlessly for a nap, it would not have been enough time to change a messy diaper. What's more, when Gloria and Michael arrive at the house, neither one of them bothers even to inquire about their baby's whereabouts.
In the climactic scene, Archie and Edith come together on the front porch of their house. They even talk about it needing to be painted. But in the opening credits (and the closing ones too), the house they show as being the Bunkers' does not have a front porch.
When Archie give the waitress the money for his bill ($1.35), he also tells her that her tip is on the table. She never gives him the change from the two dollars he gives her, and he never tells her to keep the change. Double tipping!
We learn that sherry in the 1970's (and in New York City, no less) costs 70 cents per glass in a bar.
The song that everyone sings in Kelsey's is the drinking version of "The Anniversary Waltz."
The song Edith plays on the piano at Kelsey's Bar is "As Time Goes By" from the classic film Casablanca.
In the closing credits Scott Brady is credited as Mr. Benjamin instead of Joe Foley
To leave a baby, even in colder weather, on the porch was common in the 70s. I am from Chicago and it was done here alot. Just bundle the kid up real good and stick him outside.
You notice when Archie and Edith are in the house they leave Joey outside on the front porch didn't they realize that he could've been kidnapped?
This was Burt Muston's last appearance on "All In The Family". His brief speech at the end to Archie is almost like a valedictorian speech. He says, "Take my advice and don't wind up just a fat memory in somebody's wallet. You stick to that diet, Bunker, and you'll live long enough to dance at your grandson's wedding."
In the scene in which Gloria comes in the door with the stroller, Edith tilts the bassinet that is supposedly holding Joey as she's walking up the stairs, and you can see that there's no baby in it. There's just a blanket.
Quigley is proud of the fact that he's in good shape for 92, but in the episode "Archie Feels Left Out"—just a couple of seasons ago—Quigley was about to turn 83!
In the final scene on the porch both Archie and Edith realize that they never even knew Mr. Bernstein's first name. The end credits revealed it to be Bernard.
This is the second time somebody dies under Archie's roof; the first was Cousin Oscar in the first season.
In this episode, Archie tells the watchmaker that he is an only child. However, in a later episode, Archie's brother Fred comes to town.
This is the only time we see Archie change Joey's diaper.
In the episode in which Mike and Gloria are fighting, right after the babysitter cancels, a large shadow moves very noticeably up and down behind them on the bookshelves and walls.
