‘All in the Family’ was a classic TV sitcom that focused on the family relationships surrounding its star ‘Archie Bunker’ played by Carroll O’Connor. The cast made us all crack up for nine seasons from 1971 to 1979.
In one episode, Archie has had it with his confident cousin Maude. When she sits in Archie’s chair, she’s in big trouble! Archie comes stomping down the stairs and asks Maude if she is going to get out of his seat.
Archie says, “You’re in my chair, Maude!” She responds, ‘So?” Archie says, “I wanna sit in my chair.” She responds, “Oh?” Archie replies, “You gonna get out of my chair?” Maude adamantly says, “No!”
Archie says if she doesn’t get up, he will make her upset. He tells Maude that he has a secret weapon to ruin any lady’s day. Archie proclaims, “This country was ruined by Franklin Delano Roosevelt.”
Maude stands up and starts yelling at him because her whole family is pro-Roosevelt. She says he was a saint, and Archie says, “He always had his big mouth open.” Maude says his big mouth saved her friends’ lives.
Maude says he brought the country back from the Depression, and Archie says he won the war on the back of his best general, then he fired him. Archie walks around Maude closer to the chair, and she doesn’t realize it when he gets right in her face.
Archie says, “I don’t wanna argue with you no more, Maude, and I got my chair back!” He sits down with excitement while giving a mean stare to Maude. It is a classic moment from the iconic sitcom ‘All in the Family.’
