SynopsisEdit

Henry Fonda hosts this special one-hour retrospective of "AITF" and its impact on American television. Included are show clips from the show's most memorable episodes to that point.

Episode summaryEdit

Henry Fonda serves as host for the 100th episode of All in the Family, which is devoted to highlights from the past 99 installments. Included are a montage of Archie's bigoted diatribes, a compendium of Archie's tiltings with "meathead" Mike, Gloria's matriculation from dizzy-headed bride to full-out feminist, and a section on the innate wisdom of "dingbat" Edith Bunker. In all, 35 excerpts were used, each one funnier or more profound than the last. The wraparound and linking sequences with Fonda were written by Bernie West and Michael Ross and directed by H. Wesley Kenney (who replaced John Rich and Bob LaHendro as the series' house director at the beginning of season five). Originally telecast as a one-hour special, "The Best of All in the Family" has since been syndicated as two consecutive half-hour installments.
