Mike and Gloria Mix it Up was the 16th episode of the fourth season and the 77th overall episode of All In The Family. The Season 4 episode first aired on CBS-TV on January 5, 1974. Scripted by Austin and Irma Kalish from a story by Don Nicholl,, the episode was directed by John Rich.
The Stivics quarrel over sex roles in their marriage when Mike complains that Gloria has become the aggressor as of late.
Mike thinks that the husband should be the "aggressive" member of a married couple. Gloria claims she doesn't care, but Mike thinks he can read through the lines of her indifference. As a result, Mike and Gloria's romantic evening degenerates into a high-decibel argument. Focusing almost exclusively on series regulars Rob Reiner and Sally Struthers, this episode was written by Don Nicholl.
