Flashback: Mike and Gloria's Wedding (Part 1) is the 9th episode of the third season and the 46th overall episode All in the Family. The Season 3 episode first aired on CBS-TV on November 11, 1972. Directed by John Rich and Bob LaHendro, the story was written by Rob Reiner with Philip Mishkin.

Note: Uncle Casimir Stivic was played by Michael Conrad, who later played Sgt. Phil Esterhaus on the NBC-TV crime/drama series Hill Street Blues.

Note: Part 1 of a two-part episode.


The Stivics celebrate their second anniversary by recalling how they almost were never married. With their wedding fast approaching, Archie wants the wedding his way, and Mike's Uncle Casmir wants his wedding his way. The two do not budge, and it becomes clear Mike and Gloria's engagement is in trouble.


The Bunkers and the Stivics recall the wedding of Mike and Gloria. The pre-nuptial arrangements are complicated when stubborn Archie butts heads with Mike's equally stubborn Uncle Casmir.

It's worth noting that the "flashback" Archie is even more volatile and reactionary than the present Archie Bunker viewers have come to know and -- er -- love.
