Edith tells Archie to "stifle, stifle, stifle!" when she goes through the early stages of menopause. Archie tries to be understanding, but just wants his wife to have her change of life so they can get on with their lives as usual.

Plot summaryEdit

This Emmy-winning episode of All in the Family not only shattered yet another TV taboo, but also showcased an acting tour de force for series star Jean Stapleton. The Bunker family is thrown into an uproar when the normally docile Edith undergoes several sudden and unexpected mood swings, yelling at her family and displaying a foul temper that makes Archie look like a pussycat! Though the men in the family don't quite know what is happening, Gloria does: Edith is going through menopause. Perhaps the best and funniest line of the episode is when an upset Archie, who's frustrated at his wife's sudden and constantly unpredictable mood changes, yells at Edith: "If you're gonna change, Edith, change! Right now! CHANGE!"
