Synopsis Edit

Edith invites Henry and Louise Jefferson over for dinner, ruining Archie's plans to go to a Mets game. Before dinner, Archie and Henry start a debate over racial matters.

Plot summary Edit

The tempestuous introductory "shakedown season" of All in the Family ended on a high (and highly rated) note with the episode titled "The First and Last Supper." Though Archie (Carroll O'Connor) is resigned to the fact that the Jeffersons are living across the street, he is still opposed to having other black families move into the neighborhood. Archie's intolerance -- and all the inconsistencies and contradictions included therein -- come to surface when Edith invites the Jeffersons to dinner. Isabel Sanford appears as Louise Jefferson, while Mel Stewart appears as her brother-in-law Henry.

TriviaEdit

  • Sherman Hemsley, who would later assume the role of George Jefferson, Henry's brother and Louise's husband and Archie's chief nemisis in, and patriarch of the Jefferson family, still was under contract to continue acting in the hit Broadway play "Purlie", had not yet joined the cast).
