We're Still Having a Heat Wave is the second episode of the fourth season, and the 63rd overall episode of All In The Family. The Season 4 episode first aired on CBS-TV on September 22, 1973. The second part of a two-part story, it was co-written by Michael Ross and Bernie West. The episode was co-directed by Michael Ross and Bernie West.


During a heat wave in New York city, the Bunkers' new neighbors, Frank and Irene Lorenzo give Archie a new source of irritation, thanks to Irene's constant visits and Frank's incessant singing.


Now that the Lorenzos have moved next door to the Bunkers, Archie has managed to come up with a whole new list of pet peeves. It especially vexes Archie that Irene and Frank Lorenzo don't seem to know their proper gender roles: Irene does the household repairs, while Frank does all the cooking -- and even sings in the kitchen. Even worse, at least as far as Archie is concerned, Irene bids fair to become Edith's new best friend.

Note: Betty Garrett as Irene Lorenzo and Vincent Gardenia as her husband, Frank Lorenzo also appear in this episode.
