Maude is the 24th and final episode of the second season, and the 37th overall episode of All In The Family. It first aired on CBS-TV on March 12, 1972. Directed by John Rich, the story was written by Rod Parker.
Note: This was the pilot episode for the spinoff series Maude. In addition to Bea Arthur as Maude, the episode featured Bill Macy as Maude's husband Walter.
Having scored a hit with her earlier All in the Family appearance as Edith's ultraliberal cousin, Maude, Bea Arthur returned to the role in this episode, which originally aired on March 11, 1972. Archie and Edith are invited to Westchester County, where Maude lived (she lived in Tuckahoe) to attend the wedding of Maude's daughter, Carol. Though Maude is able to match wits with Archie (mainly because she has twice the ammunition), she may not succeed in pulling off the wedding, which threatens to unravel at the seams long before Carol marches down the aisle with her Jewish fiance, David (Bob Dishy). Written by Rod Parker, "Maude" served as the pilot for the series of the same name; Bill Macy co-stars as Maude's latest husband, Walter Findlay, while actress Marcia Rodd is seen as Carol, a role ultimately played in the series proper by Adrienne Barbeau.
