Mike's Appendix is the 12th episode of the third season and the 49th overall episode All in the Family. The Season 3 episode first aired on CBS-TV on December 2, 1972. The Story was co-directed by John Rich and Bob LaHendro. It was co-written by Michael Ross and Bernie West. Ann Summers appears as Dr. McKenzie, with John Zaremba as the anesthetist.
Suffering an appendicitis attack, Mike is rushed to the hospital. End of story? Not quite: Mike's surgeon is a woman, a fact which sparks a "chauvinist vs. feminist" argument between Archie and Gloria. Much to Gloria's dismay, Mike agrees with Arch that a woman's place is not in the operating room.
