About PaulEdit

When The Bunker's front door is defaced with a spraypainted swastika, they find out that their home was mistaken for a school board member who lives nearby. As violence seems imminent, "Hebrew Defense Association" (echoing the Jewish Defense League) member Paul offers the family "protection". Surprisingly, Archie takes an immediate shine to the charismatic activist, who kept calling him "Boobie", and his reactionary tactics, but Mike is appalled by the violent escalation of their methods. The episode ends abruptly when Paul is is tragically killed by a car bomb in front of the Bunker home. As the family looks on Archie exclaims..."Wholly jeez, that's Paul...they blew him up in his car."
