Archie becomes suspicious when political office-seeker George is suddenly very nice to him. George Jefferson wants to run for a local council seat, but none of his neighbors will sign the petition to get him onto the ballot unless Archie first signs, necessitating an unlikely agreement between the two.

Episode summaryEdit

In order to run for public office, George Jefferson must have all his neighbors sign a petition in his favor. Yes, all the neighbors -- including Archie Bunker. But what will Archie demand in return for his support of George's political aspirations? It was clear when "George and Archie Make a Deal" first aired that Sherman Hemsley (George Jefferson) had outgrown his supporting-player status and would soon have a series of his own.

Note: Sherman Hemsley appears as George Jefferson, Isabel Sanford (Louise Jefferson) and Mike Evans (Lionel Jefferson) all appear in this episode.
