About the RempleysEdit

Edith, who found a magazine while on the subway, reads an ad in the "swap" section. Not realizing what is actually being asked for, Edith assumes the couple is looking for friendship. She then answers the ad, not knowing it was for swingers to meet. Curtis Rempley, who was played by Vincent Gardenia, who would later appear on AITF in a recurring role as Frank Lorenzo from seasons 4-5, and his wife Ruth (who was played by Rue McClanahan, who would resurface on the AITF spinoff series Maude in the Vivian character) who put out the ad, respond to Edith, who gave them the address to the Bunker home. Not only do the Rempleys respond, but they even arrive at the Bunker's doorstep! Mike and Gloria, in a rush, try to explain to bewildered and still in the dark Edith, what they really want! However, it isn't until the couple is actually standing in the Bunker's living room that Edith realizes, with a little help from Louise, that they are "swingers" and they want to swap with Archie and Edith! After the Rempleys, who try to explain that swinging "saved their marriage", leave, Archie after a moment of silence, and at first in a subtle tone and a sarcastic look bellows at Edith, "Don't you go answering anymore ads in magazines!"
