Archie is hospitalized for chronic back pain, and makes great friends with his roommate. He is in for quite a shock when he gets to meet him in person—he is black and a Frenchman. Will that change their new relationship?
Problems on the job manifest themselves in a huge backache for Archie Bunker. Landing in the hospital, he strikes up a warm friendship with his roommate, who is separated from Archie by a transom. Unbeknownst to him, Archie's unseen new friend is a black man. Roscoe Lee Browne guest stars as Mr. Duval.
