About George

George, who is autistic, strives hard to prove that he can do anything as well as anyone else, and be an capable employee, if given a fair chance. When the hard-working George takes a break from his job at the Ferguson's Market to help Gloria home with the groceries, Archie treats him like a child because his autism, encouraging him to take a longer break from the store than he deserves. When he goes back to the store, he is fired for being late from his lunch break, after which he disappears. George's father, Mr. Bushmill (Joseph Mascolo) calls and then drops by the Bunker home because he was worried about him being gone all afternoon, only to find that George was able to get another job where Archie works, working at the loading docks, much to the delightful surprise of his father, Gloria, Mike and Edith, but to the bewilderment of Archie!
