  • This is the first, and probably the only episode of "All in the Family" where the phrase "Goddamn it" is used.

    Archie shouts the g.d. phrase when he's fed up with Mike rambling about Watergate. Edith runs up to Archie and says, "you shouldn't swear like that". Archie replies that the two words (God and damn) are right out of the Bible, and aren't swear words.

    Even though this show was post-Hays code, some words and phrases that are more accepted on TV these days were still looked down on in the 1970s. It was shocking to many people to hear Archie say "g.d." on prime-time TV in 1973. This scene was cut entirely during the first syndication, but I believe TV Land airs this entire scene uncut.
