Archie Gives Blood was the 4th episode aired during the first season of All In The Family, also the 4th overall episode of the series. Directed by John Rich, it first aired on CBS-TV on February 2, 1971.
Archie balks at the notion of donating blood at the local Red Cross. When Mike (Rob Reiner) accuses him of being chicken, Archie protests that he doesn't want to give up a precious pint of his own "pure" blood unless he can be certain that the recipient will not be a member of a minority group. Archie's ethnocentric monologues in this episode are so incredibly convoluted that one almost grudgingly admires his stubborn stupidity. Written by series coproducer Norman Lear, "Archie Gives Blood" first aired on February 2, 1971, replacing the originally scheduled episode "Judging Books by Covers".
