    Together We Stand was about a married couple, David and Lori Randall, and their array of adopted children from all walks of life, was pulled by CBS after six episodes. It returned four months later with a new title -- Nothing Is Easy -- new opening credits, a new theme song, and a new cast member (Julia Migenes). What it didn't return with was star Elliott Gould, who had his character killed off and half of his episodes shelved. Together We Stand was more or less a remake of an episode of The Brady Bunch called Kelly's Kids, which Sherwood Schwartz unsuccessfully tried to sell as a spinoff series twelve years earlier.moreless

When the new series began, the focus of the series shifted from Archie and Edith's home life to Archie's bar, Archie's Place, which was now being expanded into a short-order restaurant. Some new regulars were introduced into the series such as Archie's new business partner, Murray Klein, cook Veronica Rooney, and some of Archie's friends, who were formerly recurring guest stars were now regulars or even costars. Edith was seen less frequently in the first season. Then at the beginning of the second season, the unthinkable happened. Edith suddenly died of a stroke, leaving Archie to care for little Stephanie all by himself.
