At the end of the episode, Edith rushes over to Davis, then promptly [[FeeFiFauxPas does so himself]].the Stivics, where a surprise birthday party (that she knew about) gets started for her. Hearing everyone sing "Happy Birthday" and "For She's A Jolly Good Fellow" when we know what's just happened to her fits this trope.

* IgnoreTheDisability: Archie successfully keeps Edith from saying something stupid to Davis, then promptly [[FeeFiFauxPas does so himself]].TransEqualsGay: Beverly LaSalle, a recurring gay character, is a cross-dresser. The show also averted the trope with an earlier episode featuring one of Archie's pals as a ManlyGay man.

* YouLookFamiliar: Allan Melvin appeared as a cop in one episode (season 1's "Archie in the Lock-Up") before taking on the recurring role of Barney Hefner. ** Vincent Gardenia played different characters in a couple of early episodes before becoming a semi-regular as Frank Lorenzo in season 4.

* PersonAsVerb: Archie Bunker became a cultural phenomenon so rapidly that as early as 1972, sociologists and pundits were discussing the "Archie Bunker vote" (otherwise known as the White Working Class; later called "[[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Reagan Democrats]]") in that year's elections. It turns out the show accurately predicted that "Archie Bunker" voters would overwhelmingly break for Nixon. He even won Archie's native Queens, the last time to date that a Republican presidential candidate has done so.

* ColorMeBlack: PlayedWith in a couple of episodes. In one episode Archie has a gallbladder operation and ends up getting blood donated from a black man, much to his consternation. Several seasons later when the KKK move into Queens he invokes the transfusion as having made him part black, so he can call on his black brothers to protest the KKK meeting house.

** More than 30 years after last playing Mike Stivic, on an episode of ''Real Time With Bill Maher'', Rob Reiner identified himself as an atheist. This is a twist on his character, who was ''not'' an atheist (he was agnostic, one who states it cannot be known whether there is a God) but was forever incorrectly called such by Archie (in his defense, even today many people are confused by the difference, and some people who are very religious would still deny there being any difference even after having it explained to them).

** Lionel Jefferson, the young black neighbor of the Bunkers who most of the time put up with Archie's brow-beating and ill-educated attempts to deal with racial harmony. However, in "Lionel Steps Out," he puts Archie in his place (not too nicely) when he crosses the line and tries to stop him from dating his white niece.
