** Averted in Season 9 at Carroll O'Connor's behest. Instead, episodes were shot on a closed set and then screened after completion for audiences attending live tapings of ''[[Series/OneDayAtATime1974 One Day at a Time]]'' so that their reactions could be edited in. The closing-credits announcement, now given by O'Connor, was rephrased to reflect this: "''All in the Family'' was played to a studio audience for live responses." (This setup was continued for ''Series/ArchieBunkersPlace''.)

** ''SouthPark'' was semi-inspired by the show, Matt and Trey mentioned that Eric Cartman was inspired by the idea of how one could adapt Archie Bunker's character to the 1990's. They eventually concluded that an adult character like him would no longer be acceptable, but that a ''kid'' spouting a stream of ignorant garbage would be fine. They were right.

* RequiredSpinoffCrossover: Surprisingly averted. None of the Bunkers ever appeared in an actual episode of ''Series/TheJeffersons'' (save via old footage in a ClipShow) or ''Series/{{Maude}}''. (Archie did have a cameo in the original, unaired pilot for ''Gloria'', however.)

* WholesomeCrossdresser: Beverly [=LaSalle=], the female impersonator whose life Archie saves. He later appears in two more episodes.

* WholesomeCrossdresser: Beverly [=LaSalle=], the female impersonator whose life Archie saves. He later appears in two more episodes. It's made clear he's actually a drag queen rather than a cross dresser, not generally going out in public in drag and making a living performing as a female impersonater.
** Beverly is never stated to be gay, just a drag queen(someone who dresses as a woman as part of an act but not necessarily in their personal life) and his iffeminate mannerisms could be explained by spending so much time in character.


Added DiffLines:

** Actually the two reappear in the first season of Archie Bunkers Place, back together with no mention of their previous marital problems. ''Then'' Gloria reappears a couple of seasons later with Mike having left her, but this was explained as his having a breakdown over the state of society and moving to a couples commune with a student when Gloria refused to join him rather than being related to the issues present in aitf season 9.

Added DiffLines:

** The Netflix original animated series ''FIsForFamily'' is essentially a new version of the series set in 1973, though with some differences such as the cast being younger and having three young children rather than an adult daughter and son-in-law, and the wife searching for an identity outside the home. Despite this, the show hits all the marks, the father even has the same clothes as Archie!

* Onlysaneman: Often it is Archie, at least in retrospect.



* StrawmanPolitical: Archie is this for conservatives. Even though he is generally has a valid point, such as believing in sex after marriage only, or believing that affirmative action is by its very nature inequality, the way he argues his points make them seem absurd.

* GenderBlenderName: Actor Lori Shannon, a gay female impersonator (he was a man), who played the role of Beverly La Salle.


Added DiffLines:

* KansasCityShuffle: In "Beverly Rides Again', Archie hopes to get the better of Pinky Peterson, who has been pulling pranks on Archie, by having him go out on a date with Beverly La Salle, played by [[GenderBlenderName Lori Shannon]], [[DragQueen a male transvestite who was a female impersonator,]] only to have Pinky get wise to the scheme [or so he believes]:
-->'''Pinky''': So, you're Beverly La Salle from out of town, huh? Is that your real name, or your stage name?
-->'''Beverly''': My God, you know!
-->'''Pinky''': I recognized you the minute you came in! I saw them putting up your picture today.
-->'''Beverly''': I'm so embarrassed, Mr. Peterson! I would never have done anything like this on my own.
-->'''Pinky''': Bunker put you up to this, didn't he? I knew he was up to something.
-->'''Beverly''': I'm glad you know; now we can go out to dinner and have a good time, and I can go back to the motel and change.
-->'''Pinky''': No, no. Since Archie lined this up, let's let him think we're pulling this off.
** Later on, the Bunkers, Pinky, and Beverly go out to dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and Pinky pretends to warm up to Beverly while two-timing his wife, Doris:
-->'''Pinky''': I really want to thank you, Arch. This is something new. I never felt like this before.
-->'''Archie''': Yeah, but... look, isn't it a shame about poor Doris, you know, your sweetheart who loves you? She's gonna be broken-hearted.
-->'''Pinky''': Oh, Doris is the same old thing. Beverly is something different.
-->'''Archie''': [[YouCanSayThatAgain In every way, buddy.]]

** A little later on, unbeknownst to the audience until later on, Archie has secretly made a phone call to Doris, and Beverly has to take off his wig to clear up the misunderstandings:
-->'''Edith''': Mr. Peterson, I got something to tell you! You see, Archie is playing a joke on you! Go on, tell him, Archie.
-->'''Archie''' [slightly annoyed]: All right, Edith, yeah. All right, it's a joke. That's right, Pinky, it's a joke, and the joke is on you for a change, and a helluva joke it is.
-->'''Pinky''': You mean that Beverly's a guy?
-->'''Archie''': Beverly- [Pinky laughs hysterically, Archie turns to Edith] Did you say something to him? I can never catch this guy at nothin'-
-->'''Pinky''': I got you again, Bunker!
-->'''Archie''': Aw, jeez!
-->'''Beverly''': You told me you wanted him to have his revenge. You rat! [Beverly punches Pinky]
-->'''Pinky''': Beverly, sweetheart, you're the only dame I ever loved! I love you! [Pinky's wife Doris enters the restaurant just as Pinky starts to hug her and hits Pinky with her purse] Doris!
-->'''Archie''': Doris, I thought you was never gonna get here!
-->'''Doris''': Is this what you mean by "going bowling with the boys"?
-->'''Pinky''': Oh, Doris, I can explain everything!
-->'''Doris''': Oh, Archie, you were so right! Thank you for calling me and tipping me off to this philanderer!
-->'''Archie''': Doris, I couldn't do nothing else.
-->'''Edith''': Archie, that was a terrible thing to do!
-->'''Archie''': I had to stand by Doris.
-->'''Pinky''': Doris, you don't understand! Beverly, explain it to Doris.
-->'''Beverly''' [deniably]: I don't know what you're talking about. [teasingly] Same time tomorrow night, Pinkums?
-->'''Pinky''': Doris, Beverly isn't a lady!
-->'''Doris''': Not if she's out with you, you crumb!
-->'''Edith''': Oh, no no no, he means that she- I mean he- ain't a woman.
-->'''Pinky''': Yeah, show 'em, Beverly.
-->'''Beverly''': Should I, Mr. Bunker?
-->'''Archie''': Yeah, go ahead, but be careful of the things you show, 'cause we could get locked up here.
-->'''Beverly''': All right, showtime! [Beverly takes off the wig, revealing him to be a man in drag]
-->'''Doris''': What is wrong- It's a man!
-->'''Archie''': Yeah.
-->'''Pinky''': You see, Doris, I wasn't out with a woman, I was out with a man!
