Gloria Sings the Blues is the 22nd episode of the fourth season and the 83rd overall episode of All in the Family. The Season 4 episode first aired on CBS-TV on 2 March 1974. Co-written by Michael Ross and Bernie West, the episode was directed by John Rich.
Archie eats some mushrooms for lunch. Later, he learns those mushrooms may be part of a product recall because they were in a batch laced with bacteria. Despite Mike's urging, Archie decides he doesn't want to bother with taking the rest of the cans of mushrooms back to the store ... or worry himself with the fact he may have food poisoning.
When Gloria is depressed, everyone in the family suffers. The reason for Gloria's doldrums is her belief that she has fallen out of love with husband Mike. It is up to Edith to save the day -- and to again reveal that, when the chips are down, she is anything but a mere "dingbat."
