Archie the Hero is the fourth episode of the sixth season of All in the Family, and the 112th overall episode of the series. Written by Bill Davenport and Lou Derman, and directed by Paul Bogart, it first aired 29 September 1975 on CBS-TV.


Archie arrives home from his part-time cab driving job proudly announcing that he provided CPR to a female passenger who lost consciousness in the back seat of his taxi. Archie gushes when she tracks him down and visits him at home to pay the cab fare along with a very generous "thank you" tip. Word gets out and Archie is labeled a "hero". Mr. Munson arranges for press coverage and a reward as an opportunity to freely publicize his taxi service. However, Archie is less-than-willing to speak of the good deed to anyone after the "woman" reveals herself to him as a female impersonator!
