Archie and the FBI is the 16th episode aired during the second season and the 29th overall episode All in the Family. The Season 2 episode first aired on CBS-TV on January 15, 1972. Directed by John Rich, the story was co-written by Michael Ross, Bernie West and Susan Harris.
During a visit between Archie and his longtime friend, American Legion Post 3201 Commander Grundy (Graham Jarvis), an FBI agent investigates both of them, in which their mutual paranoia causes a rift that may permanently damage the friendship.
Archie's blind faith in the infallibility of the United States government receives another blow when he finds himself under the scrutiny of the FBI. At first, the Feds seem more interested in Larry Grundy, one of Archie's closest friends, but then the investigation hits closer to home. Though Archie survives with his confidence in the Red, White, and Blue intact, the ultimate price he pays is a painful one.
