Archie discovers that he has a small tax problem. Seems he didn't think it was important to claim the money that he made on his part-time cab driving job. He goes down to the Internal Revenue Service to talk to them but he offends the man, who is black. In response, the agent tells him that he is going to audit his returns for the last three years.

In a nostalgic glimpse at early 1970's grocery prices, Archie complains about having to eat chicken 'again' for dinner and asks why Edith can't serve hamburger for a change. Edith explains that it's easier to afford chicken at 29 cents a pound than the more expensive 98 cents a pound! See more »

Archie Bunker: You want to see him, open your eyes and step back.
Gloria Bunker-Stivic: Be nice, Daddy. I worked hard today.
Archie Bunker: So did I, little girl, but you don't see me comin' home and slobberin' all over your mother.
Edith Bunker: No, that's right, Gloria. Your father was never much of a slobberer. He's more of a pecker.

"All in the Family" at its funniest - when Archie Bunker interacts with an African American
15 August 2017 | by Entertainment-BuffSee all my reviews

This episode of "All in the Family" is a prime example of this show at its funniest - when Archie interacts with an African American. He is called in the IRS for questions about his tax returns. While in the waiting room, a black man accidentally bumps into him, and Archie fusses at him. Then when Archie is called into the tax examiner's office, it is the same man he fussed at in the waiting room. Archie's look when he sees the tax examiner is priceless! As are the direction, writing, and performances. Don't miss this episode.
